Christ The King

Dear Parishioners,

Jesus never called himself a king. To the contrary, he ran from it. During his ministry, he was always deflecting attention away from himself. A man calls him “Good teacher,” and Jesus says, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.” This is what qualifies Jesus to be the king the world needs. He had no self-seeking ambition. He was free of infatuation with power. His only business was his Father’s business. Jesus inverted the concept of kingship into servanthood. There has never been such a King. This is why he is our king… the King of Kings… he is for us Christ the King.

our senses, for these are the gates by which the Devil
enters in.”
