From the Pastor's Desk

 

 My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

     The Solemnity of Christ the King makes a statement about Christ, but it also makes a statement about our own self-identity: He has made us into a Kingdom. Jesus was born to be King and to "testify to the truth." The truth of His earthly existence led to the cross. The truth of our existence as His loyal subjects also leads to the cross. Only through the cross is Jesus brought to glory ... only through the cross are we brought to glory.

     The contrasting images from the reading from the Book of Revelation sum up the Paschal Mystery character of this Solemnity: firstborn, ruler, glory, power-forever versus pierced, lament-by-His-blood. We all like the positive images invoked by this Solemnity. In our own moments of truth we admit to our very human propensity for power and wealth. Much about society and our own daily lives carries us in this direction. We would like to avoid the reality of the challenge offered by the contrasting negative images that remind us to embrace the cross. One last time, on this last Sunday of the current liturgical year, we say: the road to glory is through the cross.

     May Saint Michael the Archangel defend, guide, protect, and intercede for us always!

Fr. Larry
