You may have recently participated in democratic elections and whether you are happy, sad, or ambivalent about the results I hope you appreciate what a privilege and responsibility that participation is. Today is Christ the King Sunday, the last Sunday of the Church liturgical year, when we celebrate that Jesus Christ is our one true Ruler, our Lord, and our King. This is a truth that many, like Pontius Pilate, struggle to grasp, especially when we try to make God fit into the frameworks and structures that humanity has created. Jesus testifies to a Truth and a Kingdom that is not from this world and that cannot be subjugated to any other power. That is good news because the Truth of Jesus Christ is one of Love, Grace, Justice, and Peace.
