In his discourse, Bishop Chacko of Indore Diocese said, “In 1925, Pope Pius XI introduced the celebration of Christ the King in the Catholic Church.”

He added that Jesus Christ was, is, and will be the King who resides in heart of Catholics. He was not a worldly king, if his kingdom was of this world, he would have been born in a palace instead of a cowshed,” Chacko said.

He added that Christ’s entry into the city of Jerusalem would not have been on a donkey, but on a horse, and he would not have died suffering on a cross in the luxurious bedroom of a palace. “Even today, he rules our hearts, when we follow his teachings, love him and consider him our guru and king,” Chacko said.

The information was shared by Fr Babu Joseph and BA Alvares on behalf of the Indore Christian media forum.
