God Reigns

Tomorrow is the feast of Christ the King. Father Raniero Cantalamessa, the Pontifical Household preacher, has some beautiful words.
Let us consider again the inscription placed above Christ: “This is the King of the Jews.” The onlookers challenged him to manifest his royalty openly and many, even among his friends, expected a spectacular demonstration of his kingship. But he chose only to show his kingship in his solicitousness for one man, who was, in fact, a criminal: “‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He replied to him, ‘Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.'"

What wonderful reassurance to us sinners who ask His forgiveness.
