       As we celebrate the Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, it is a good to time to reflect on what this means for us. It is also a good time to reflect on the beginning of Advent next Sunday and how that can change or impact our lives for the better. We can use Advent as a time of spiritual renewal, to grow deeper in our faith and our relationship with Jesus Christ, our only King and Savior.
         As Collosians 1:13-14 tells us : "He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins". This is a kingdom of goodness and light which we are part of by our baptism, and are called to live in faithfully and joyfully. We have been offered eternal life and forgiveness of our sins, a gift beyond any of the pleasures of this world. As Jesus died on the cross people mocked him saying: "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself. Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us" (Luke 23:37,39).
         Jesus, although the King of the Universe, was a different kind of king when he walked the earth. He was a selfless king, willing to suffer as he destroyed and robbed death of it's power. We are called to imitate his selfgiving in our daily lives, to use our time and gifts to spread the Good News of salvation and eternal life. Jesus the King of the Universe, reigns now in eternal glory and wishes all people to share in his kingdom!
