Let Jesus Rule!

We celebrate the solemnity of Christ the King. It is the last Sunday of Ordinary Time and ushers us into the Advent Season. We recall the mystery of our faith that Christ will come again. This second coming will be a glorious one unlike the first when Jesus came like an ordinary human. And as judge he will ask an accounting of what we did with our lives. The king will judge us in the capacity of our love.
This brings us to the reality that Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega of our life. He is the beginning and the end; our origin and also our destiny. Come to think of it, through him we live, we move and have our being. When my relative, Fr. Jose Mansueto died, i saw these words placed on the hood of his coffin. Perhaps it was his prayer and commitment: Jesus, I live for you. Jesus, I die for you. Jesus, I am yours in life and in death.
If Jesus is truly the King, then let him rule in our lives. When we pray “thy kingdom come,” we are actually praying: Jesus come and rule us. Be our king!
