Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and overall holiday season. I am a little slow easing back into the swing of things at the start of this new year, but am thinking it's time to put into practice one of my New Year's resolutions: to stop procrastinating. Am not off to the greatest start on that, but will try my best!
At the beginning of this new year, there is already so much to talk about that it's hard to focus on just one topic right now. One thing that keeps popping into my head, though, is something that happened toward the end of last year that, to me, seemed like one of the most under-reported international stories of the year: Poland officially recognized Jesus Christ as the King of Poland and called upon Him to rule over their nation, its people and their political leaders. Imagine if this were to ever happen in America.
This declaration took place on Nov. 19 when the Catholic Bishops of Poland in the presence of President Andrzei Duda and many Catholic pilgrims.
"Immortal King of Ages Lord Jesus Christ, our God and Savior," they declared at the ceremony, "bowing our heads before You, King of the Universe, we acknowledge Thy dominion over Poland, those living in our homeland and throughout the world. Wishing to worship the majesty of Thy power and glory, with great faith and love, we cry out: Rule us, Christ!"
