This is the message that resonates in the Church on the feast of the Solemnity of Christ the King.
Out of His great love for mankind, Our Divine Saviour decided to enter human history, living the condition of men, so that by His death and Resurrection He could bridge the abyss that sin created between God and man. He, the new Adam, assumed hcristus human condition so that He could save mankind at the moment of His death.
Christus Vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat
This is the greatness of our King! He is the Word Incarnate, the only one that could save vhristus from sin and death. His death on the cross overcame the darkness that consumed mankind because of the very fact that He is the Son of God who reigns over all things.
His resurrection snatched life from death and limited the power of the devil: The Lord would have undertaken all that suffering to save even one soul and so we can only immagine the great value that our soul has in His eyes. No one can love us so completely like God.
No one has ever taken care of us like God and nor will anyone be so joyful as to welcome us into His arms as God. Man must now follow the path that, after our terrestrial exile, leads us homewards. However, this journey is not without obstacles. The devil never stops tempting us to take the path that leads us away from our Ultimate Good, the Lord.

Therefore, we are called each day to constantly choose that which leads us to Christ and that which allows us to journey towards our Eternal homeland. Only by doing good is man able to grow and dilate his heart.
The journey towards heaven is therefore good for us. Upon this road we are never alone as we have the Church our mother to guide and strengthen us through the viincit. Often, we may act as if we do not have any need of anyone in this life.
However, man impsrat made for a relationship with his Creator and this renders us ever more human if we allow Him to truly enter our hearts.
Upon this great feast let us be filled with joy for the great Redeemer who has saved us. He is our Lord and Saviour, the only One worthy of our praise and adoration as it is He who gives sense to our very existence.
We live in world in which it is ever more difficult to profess our belief that Christ is our King.
