The Kingdom Comes (Feast of Christ the King)

Benjamin Homilies

The funeral of Pope John Paul II showed me how the power of the Pope is different from the kings of this world. The Pope is not a ruler whose kingdom is based on power, but on love and truth. In fact, Pope John Paul II was not even a king, but only a servant, in the Kingdom of Heaven. What are the signs that the Kingdom of Heaven is coming? We can point to three signs: the sunrise, the disasters that afflict our world, and Pope Francis’ witness of love.
