The Real Big Boss
Bad things do happen, many times; wars, spiraling crime & immorality, economic recessions, natural & man-made disasters. We feel sad & hopeless when relationships crumble, families are broken up & loved ones are snatched away through diseases & accidents. As today is Solemnity of Christ the King, let's reflect on who really is in control. For God so loved us, he send his son Jesus Christ, who became man and took upon himself the punishment of our sins. Jesus conquered sin & death so that we can be with God in paradise forever. Jesus Christ is King of this world & the Universe. At the end of time, all powers will be removed and all mankind will be brought before him to be judged. Indeed, "God raised him high, and gave him the name which is above all other names, so that all beings in the heavens, on earth & in the underworld, should bend the knee at the name of Jesus & that every tongue should acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord, to the glory of God the Father". The righteous will enter paradise, not because of their own works, but because they have done God's will - by responding & being faithful to Jesus.
