Quote/s of the Day – 24 November – The Solemnity of Christ the King
“Christ, has dominion over all creatures,
a dominion not seized by violence
nor usurped but His,
by essence and by nature.”
St Cyril of Alexandria (376-444)
Father & Doctor of the Church
“Christ’s kingdom is not just a figure of speech.
Christ is alive, He lives as a man,
with the same body
He took when He became man,
when He rose after His death,
the glorified body which subsists
in the person of the Word
together with His human heart.
Christ, true God and true man, lives and reigns.
He is the Lord of the universe.
Everything that lives
is kept in existence
only through Him.”
St Josemaria Escrivá (1902-1975)
You have heard Him spoken of,
indeed the greater part of you are already His – you are Christians.
So, to you Christians I repeat His name,
to everyone I proclaim Him –
Jesus Christ is the beginning and the end,
the Alpha and the Omega.
He is the king of the new world.
He is the secret of history.
He is the key to our destiny.”
St Pope Paul VI (1897-1978)
“You say that I am a king. For this I was born and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.”
“But what is the “truth” that Christ
came into the world to witness to?
The whole of His life reveals that God is love –
so this is the truth to which He witnessed to the full,
with the sacrifice of His own life on Calvary.”
Pope Benedict XVI
“When did Jesus reveal Himself as king?
In the event of the Cross!”
