Christ in Majesty – Fra Angelico
Dear Brethren of Christ the King,
The Sovereign Lord raises up some and puts others down for blessing or chastisement. We cast ourselves upon His infinite mercifulness. We trust in the Lord and Him alone. Our future belongs to Him so our hearts may rest secure.
In the days ahead, be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. “Be sober, be vigilant, for your enemy the devil, like a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour; whom resist steadfast in the faith.”
But Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Now may the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and the love of God and of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord. And the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be among you and remain with you always.
