Christ the King (C) - "Where the King is, there is the Kingdom" - Sir Quirino M. Sugon Jr.

Luke 23:35-43

The Proclamation of the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke

The people stood by and watched; the rulers, meanwhile, 
sneered at him and said, “He saved others, let him save himself 
if he is the chosen one, the Messiah of God.” Even the soldiers 
jeered at him. As they approached to offer him wine they called out, 
“If you are King of the Jews, save yourself.”Above him there 
was an inscription that read, “This is the King of the Jews.” 
Now one of the criminals hanging there reviled Jesus, saying, 
“Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us.” The 
other, however, rebuking him, said in reply, “Have you no fear 
of God, for you are subject to the same condemnation? And 
indeed, we have been condemned justly, for the sentence 
we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man 
has done nothing criminal.”

Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your 
kingdom.” He replied to him, “Amen, I say to you, today you 
will be with me in Paradise.

The Gospel for this Sunday tells us how the Israelites doubted and had great disbelief about the “Messiahship” of Jesus Christ, the Anointed One of God. Jesus Christ the King of Kings was treated very differently from the treatment they gave to David, a mere human being, which they honored and acknowledged before God as King of Israel. They did not know that they are the “bone and the flesh” (2 Samuel 5:1) of Jesus Christ the Head who will “shepherd His Body, the Church and shall be commander of it” (2 Samuel 5:2). Although they seemed anointed Jesus Christ and acknowledged Him jokingly as “The King of the Jews”, they were really right for God is really the King of the Jews. God willed that His Son must suffer and die in the hands of His chosen people that they may know that Jesus Christ is the King of Kings and He is above King David His servant whom they acknowledged as King of Israel. In Jesus Christ we are anointed by the Blood He shed for us on His cross. We are saved by the Father’s Beloved Son so that we may enjoy and thank the Father for He made us fit to share in the inheritance of the angels; He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to King Jesus’ Kingdom where there is redemption and forgiveness of sins which we call as Christ’ Kingdom, the Church (Colossians 1:12-13); and that Kingdom of King Jesus is no other than His Mother Mary, the Queen.

King Jesus the Eternal Word is really the King above all human kings for all the things that exist was made through Him. It is truly right and just that all of these created things must be dedicated to God and be recreated in God for He made it, and in Jesus Christ all the created things hold together. He is the Head of the Body, the Church, for in this Church all created things must be dedicated to God and be recreated in God which is the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. Because Jesus Christ is the beginning, and He existed first before all existing things, He must take up a human body and to die on the cross and shed blood to reconcile in peace the heaven and the earth. For just as King Jesus Christ the Eternal Word was the reason why all things were created, He must be the Eternal Word made flesh that will recreate again the things created through Him, by His Blood that was shed on the cross, which is also the blood of the Queen Mother Mary for in her Jesus Christ’ humanity was formed and taken by the King Jesus from her. For as blood is the reason why our body is living and we have life, so also must all created things be together by the Blood of King Jesus that will flow in the Head Jesus and His Body the Church that will make us living members of the Body of Christ which is also the Body of Mary, the Tree of Life, the bearer and bringer of Blood and Life Jesus the King. It is true indeed that the Blood of Christ sticks us together. It is true indeed that Christ’ Blood bonds us together. Now, we must be like the penitent criminal, who acknowledged God and feared Him, and he also acknowledged that God is also a man. He asked God to remember him, he also admitted his sins and did contrition, acknowledged that King Jesus is purely innocent like a pure lamb, and in turn, Jesus Christ the King belonged him in His Saving and Recreating Blood that was shed for us on the cross.

Here are some points to consider:

1 We must all be a Marian devotee. We must let Mama Mary to recreate and dedicate us in her in order to be recreated and dedicated in and for Jesus Christ.

2. We must be attentive in admitting our sins in contrition of our heart in the Sacrament of Confession. We must reconcile ourselves to God for we kill Him as an innocent and pure Lamb again and again by our sins, the deadly ones particularly. So, stop sinning and live a holy life!

3. We must also stop sinning venial sins.

4. Imitate the saints who were perfect persons in imitating Christ.

“Jesus, I trust in You.” “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”

To the greater glory of God! Glory to Christ the King!
