John Paul II Explains "Your Kingdom Come"
Holy Father Reflects on Familiar Legionary-Regnum Christi Salutation.

Papa escribiendo
It is customary for Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi members to head their correspondence with the phrase, "Your Kingdom Come!" This salutation, a familiar line from the Lord´s prayer, sums up the apostolic thrust of the Regnum Christi movement. It points us in the direction of winning the culture for Christ.

In his November 6 catechesis on Psalm 97(98), Pope John Paul II reflected on the meaning of this phrase for all Christians. A Zenit news dispatch quotes him saying: "This is our great hope and our invocation: ´Your Kingdom come!´ -- a Kingdom of peace, justice, and serenity, which will re-establish the original harmony of creation."

The Holy Father teaches that the "certainty that God intervenes in history and will have the last say, is what constitutes the foundation of the believer´s serenity," Zenit reported.

The Holy Father´s insights reassure us of the Lord´s providence and should grant all Christians -- but especially Legionaries and Regnum Christi members -- confidence as they seek to live their vocation of prayer and service. Your Kingdom Come!
