What better theme to end the liturgical year, anticipating the start of the Advent season the following Sunday? Jesus Christ is King; he reigns and will not be overcome. But take note: the throne of our King is a cross and his power is not that of fear, but of love and boundless forgiveness. Rightly, the Church uses this feast to focus on the transformative power of Christ’s Gospel as it confronts the false rulers who perpetuate the reign of violence, injustice, greed and separation.
