Poland Crowns Christ as King

I had been wondering what had happened to all the Christian nations in the last few years. It is good to hear that there is one left.

From the New American :

In the presence of Polish President Andrzej Duda and other top officials from both church and state, Jesus Christ was officially recognized as the King of Poland in a Catholic ceremony. Declared to be Poland’s Lord and Savior, the Messiah was asked to rule over the Polish nation, its people, and its government. The ceremony was held last month at the Church of Divine Mercy in Krakow and then repeated at churches across Poland, marking the 1050th anniversary of the nation’s Christianity. The congregation also renounced the devil and all his evil works.

Of course, as more than a few church leaders pointed out, the ceremony did not actually “make” Christ the King of Poland. That is because, in the Christian worldview, Jesus Christ is already King of kings, as well as King over all His creation. So, instead of actually “making” Jesus the King, the Polish ceremony enthroning Christ recognized that sovereignty, with the formalities being described by officials and celebrants as a sign of the willing submission of Poland and its people to the rule of Christ. The ceremony was also not intended to, and could not, add to Jesus’ honor or power, religious leaders cautioned. Throughout the mass, though, Christ was asked to rule over every aspect of Polish life.
