Today's feast day celebrates the exalted position of Jesus as the redeemer of mankind. Christ's work of redemption was a turning point in the history of God and His people. Christ's act of redemption - His passion, death and resurrection from the dead - sealed the saving work of God that commenced with the fall of Adam and Eve.
May we open ourselves more and more to the endless mercy of God through His work of salvation. As we hail Jesus our King, may we truly allow Him to reign in our lives and rule us with His love and compassion.
