This feast, instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 proclaims the sovereignty of Jesus over all authority. The Kingdom of Jesus is a Kingdom of Truth. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn. 14:6). The Kingdom of Jesus is a kingdom of holiness. Jesus delivers us from evil. He died on the Cross to save us from the slavery of sin.
He poured on us His Spirit to make us holy. The Kingdom of Jesus is a kingdom of justice. He teaches us that we are all equal members of God’s family. The Kingdom of Jesus is a kingdom of peace. Even at His birth the choirs of angels sang of peace. He is the Prince of Peace giving us that Peace which the world can neither give nor take away.
