he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him.

“In the end, everything has been entrusted to our protection, and all of us are responsible
for it. Be protectors of God’s gifts!” ― Pope Francis

From the Pastor 11/23/14

A Blessed Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. How appropriate our liturgical year comes to an end with this celebration this weekend. Next week we begin the Season of Advent and a new liturgical year. Of all the great kings of the world we could easily say that Jesus Christ is the greatest of all kings. Truly he is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. Thus it was very proper for Pope Pius XI, of the last century, on December 11, 1925, to declare this great feast day of Christ the King. Pope Pius XI made it very clear that Jesus Christ as creator and sustainer of the world has a right to rule over all the nations of the earth. Christ has the right to teach all the nations, to make laws and guide all people in things that pertain to our eternal salvation.

Absolutely no government, no matter how powerful it is, has the power to regulate God‟s authority over human life and human destiny. No government has the right to infringe on the Church‟s right to proclaim the reign of Christ. The pope rightly asserted that Christ is the King of the Universe, and that our Lord commands the respect and praise of all peoples.

About St. Irenaeus Ministries
It is our conviction that Christ came, not only to teach a true faith, but to minister his life and salvation powerfully to all. To this end, he left us an enduring Church with eternal and unchanging provisions of grace to bless and actually transform the lives of mankind. Moved by the love of our Lord and a reverence for this One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and “her faith, her peace and her enduring missionary spirit,” we have come together to raise up a more positive and powerful witness to his truth and grace.

St. Irenaeus is not an independent ecclesiastic structure, but a living, Christ-centered faith community, flowing strength and blessing back to the various parishes and individuals with whom we have to do.

Our mandate is simple: “to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.” For us this means proclaiming and teaching Christ in the fullness of the historic faith and offering what encouragement and sound guidance we can for the formation of mature disciples. In short, we are concerned with the salvation of souls and fostering their growth in holiness. So, we have a three-fold imperative to promote:

  • A better knowledge of the Truth;
  • A deeper Spiritual Life and
  • A more authentic and powerful witness to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
