Christ the King

The Church festivities celebrating events of the Lord’s life generally end with the celebration of Christ the King.  It began with the expectation of His birth and coming at the Advent Season.  When Pontius Pilate became procurator of Judea (year 26-36 A.D.) he asked Jesus: So you are a king then?  Jesus answered this way: “It is you who say it.  Yes, I am a king.  I was born for this, I came into the world for this: to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice” (Jn. 18:37).

         If we analyze the answer of Jesus and the development of Christianity in the subsequent events of the Resurrection of Jesus and the number of Christians and Catholics in the world today we can then stick to the voice of history and reality whereby the Church has documented many relevant historical facts as well as the miraculous signs of God’s intervention in the history of the Church and the thousands of saints whose lives are thoroughly described as conceding or professing the kingship of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The documentation in the lives of saints are based on facts, not just hearsay.  As the Latin proverb attests: Contra factum non valet argumentum (you do not argue against facts).

         “And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven: there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it” (Mark 16: 19-20).  If you wish to check for the signs and miracles please turn to the pages of history and documentation and ask or seek  for those proofs of Jesus’ divinity.  After all as Jesus had said “everyone who seeks always finds” (Mt. 7:7).
