A Meditation for Christ the King Sunday
Jesus is the true and better King, who issues a proclamation and publishes it through the whole world.
By decree of the King, let every one of you repent and be washed with water in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself. Save yourselves from this crooked generation. Repent and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that God may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things, about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.
