Thought for the Day – 25 November – The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
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)
Homily delivered in Manila, 29 November 1970
“Follow Me. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Without the Way, there is no going.
Without the Truth, there is no knowing.
Without the Life, there is no living.
I am the Way, which you must follow,
the Truth, which you must believe,
the Life, for which you must hope.
I am the inviolable Way,
the infallible Truth,
the unending Life.
I am the Way that is straight,
the supreme Truth,
the Life that is true,
the blessed, the uncreated Life.
If you abide in My Way, you shall know the Truth
and the Truth shall make you free
and you shall attain life everlasting.”
