J.M.J. Jesus Christ is the King and the Center of all hearts!
Let us hear an excerpt or two from Pope Francis before he recited the Angelus today in Saint Peter's Square (courtesy of the Website of the Holy See).
"On this last Sunday of the liturgical year, we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. And today's Gospel makes us contemplate Jesus while He presents Himself before Pilate as the King of a Kingdom 'that is not of this world' (John 18:36)."
After recounting the heroic Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, the Holy Father concluded:
"In view of many lacerations in the world and too many wounds to the flesh of men, we ask the Virgin Mary to sustain us in our commitment to imitate Jesus, Our King, making His Kingdom present with acts of tenderness, understanding and mercy."
Christ, Our King, have mercy on us.
Mary, Our Queen, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Church, pray for us.
Saint Cecilia, the Patroness of Sacred Music, pray for us.
