Christ-The-King

We have no king but Jesus! Yes, most lovely Savior, Thou art my king; Thou art and hast forever to be my only Lord. True king, indeed, art Thou of our souls; for Thou hast created them, and redeemed them from the slavery of Satan: Thy kingdom come. Exercise, then, Thy dominion, and reign forever in our poor hearts; may they ever serve and obey Thee! Be it for others to serve the monarchs of earth, in hope of the good things of this world. Our desire it is to serve only Thee, our afflicted and despised king, in hope only of pleasing Thee, without any earthly consolations.

St. Alphonsus Liguori

29th March

Like Christians everywhere, I’m reading through the account of the Triumphal Entry found in chapter 21:1-11 of Marks’ gospel.

There is so much to celebrate in this scripture, the fulfilment of prophecy (Zechariah 9:9), the arrival of Christ as King, Jesus’ use of a donkey as a statement of His peaceful arrival. It’s an exciting extract and the atmosphere at the time must have been incredible as palm leaves were laid out in celebration and shouts of ‘hallelujah’ echoed all around.

But among the joviality, the Messiah was effectively riding to His death. And not just any death, but a horrific, painful, humiliating and sacrificial death, triggered by betrayal.

Here I am drawn to the overriding theme of Holy Week and the very essence of the gospel; the sacrifice of Jesus Christ so that we might live. This isn’t just a routine bible reading at the appropriate time of year; it’s a heart wrenching, life changing reminder of how much the King of Kings was and is willing to sacrifice for me. Hallelujah indeed.

You are with me, always. You know me better than I know myself, yet You love me still! Thank you Lord!

The King of Love - original typography from The Worship Project. 

The King of Love My Shepherd Is - H.W.Baker (1868)

“The King of love my Shepherd is, whose goodness faileth never. I nothing lack if I am His, and He is mine forever. And so through all the length of days, thy goodness faileth never; Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise within Thy House forever.” 

This old hymn is incredibly inspiring. Based on Psalm 23.

Rest in His promises today and always friends! x

MATRIARCHAL VATICAN

On the chair of St. Magdalena she, the Vicar of Christ, sits with all the Princesses of the Church arrayed about her. God speaks through her, thunders through her devout but never demure body, armies of pacification ride beneath her banners, god-fearing monarchs petition her for their crowns, and thousands fall to their knees when she walks out into the sun and raises her hands to the heavens. She is the Church, and outside of her, there is no salvation.
