Give Him the Keys

November 20, 2016 – Solemnity of Christ the King

During his homily on the Solemnity of Christ the King sveral years ago, Fr. John Kamwendo (then the Associate Pastor of St. Pius X Parish in Indianapolis) shared what he viewed as a distinction between Jesus our Friend, and Jesus our King.

First, he acknowledged the need to experience both of these relationships with Jesus. Then he offered this image: Comparing our lives to taking a ride in our brand new car, he said, “If we invite Jesus our Friend to go with us, we let Him ride shotgun. If we invite Jesus our King to go with us, we give Him the keys.”
