Christ the King

You can order this new icon in our Mounted Sizes from 4" to 24" tall and in the sames sizes in Unmounted Prints by using the pulldown Size/Price menu below right. This icon subject is available in our Cathedral Sizes and as a Church Banner. Pope Pius XI instituted the feast of Christ the King in 1925 to remind Christians that their allegiance was to their spiritual ruler in heaven as opposed to earthly supremacy, which at that time in Italy was claimed by the dictator Benito Mussolini. "'Christ,' he says, 'has dominion over all creatures, a dominion not seized by violence nor usurped, but his by essence and by nature.'" Pope Benedict XVI remarked that Christ's kingship is not based on "human power" but on loving and serving others. The perfect exemplar of that acceptance, he pointed out, is the Virgin Mary. Christ's own declaration of His kingship is found in the Gospels: My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. (John 18:36-37).
