Principal Weekly Letter
Message from the Principal - November 18, 2020
On Sunday we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. Jesus is King of the Universe because He is God. Jesus has existed from all of eternity. He is the beginning and the end (expressed by “Alpha and Omega,” which are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet). Jesus, as God, holds dominion over all of creation. He revealed this kingship when He took on humanity. Especially through His death and resurrection, Jesus established His kingdom and invites all of us to be a part of it. Jesus is more powerful than any earthly ruler because His kingdom is one of everlasting love. Jesus died so we could have forgiveness of our sins and be part of His kingdom. He rose to conquer sin and death, proving His kingship and showing us that He wants to bring us all to resurrection. Jesus invites us all to be a part of His kingdom, which is the Church. In the Church, we find the forgiveness Jesus offers us and the new life he wants to give us. We just need to open our hearts to his amazing love and allow Jesus to rule our lives with His perfect love.
God Bless you
