Christ the King, 2015

Christ is not a king who dominates us, he doesn’t treat us like subjects, but elevates us to his own dignity. He makes us reign with Him, for as the Book of Revelation says: “He has made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father” (1:6). But reigning like Him means serving God and our brothers and sisters, a service that flows from love. To serve out of love is to reign: this is the kingship of Jesus.
–Pope Francis, Solemnity of Christ the King, 2015
