The Glory of Royalty … Saturday, June 22

The Virgin with saints

The Virgin with saints. Saints? Children of God, the King. Royalty.

A Rosary Meditation … The Fifth Glorious Mystery, the Coronation. “Hail, O Queen of Mercy, protect  us from the enemy, and receive us at the hour of death.” *Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Gradual* You know, I feel genuinely sorry for people with no Royalty in their lives. It seems to me a sad way to live, with no one of authority and worth to look up to, to turn to. All they have is themselves. And Royalty? The real kind is a sort of trickle-down Divine economy. It begins with the King of kings. And make no mistake, Jesus Christ, God Almighty, IS KING of kings. He is NOT President of presidents, or Chancellor of chancellors, or Chairman of the Board. If He was it would say so someplace so that we could know. What it DOES say is that HE IS KING. Now for the trickle-down Divine economy part. Because He is King his Mother IS Queen Mother. If she isn’t then it would say so someplace so that we could know. If we are, as Believers, children of God (and as believers we are) then we are all related, aren’t we? Which brings us back to my feeling sorry for folks with no Royalty in their lives. If there is no place for Royalty in a person’s life then they are left entirely on their own with no One to turn to, and this is eternally a sad state of affairs. For us to be without Royalty in our lives is to be without lineage, and to be outside the family of God. Because if we’re His children, and this would automatically make us the Queen’s children as well, we are Royal too. If we aren’t then it would say so someplace so that we would know. Happily its up to us to say so. And the King? Gives us over to His loving Mother, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. “When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son.” John 19:26.

Today …

St. Consortia

Foundress of a convent endowed by King Clotaire I of Soissons and the Franks. Consortia reportedly cured Clotaire’s daughter of a mortal illness. She has long been venerated at Cluny, in France. See how beautiful real royalty is? King Clotaire gave, by God’s grace, our saint a beautiful convent to further the work of the King of kings. More of the trickle-down economy. When it trickles down, where do we stand? Under the trickle?

Think … “For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26. If God is the Ultimate Royalty (KING of kings), and He is, then what does that make YOU?

  1. It is funny that you did this post today. I was just thinking this morning, “We has humans must believe in something/Someone which is bigger and better than ourselves, as we make such a mess of things it seems.” This post confirmed that for me, and Who we must believe in. Good one and God Bless, SR

    • Thank you. I just finished getting tomorrows post ready. It kind of deals with the same thing. Take care, God bless and have a good day. 🙂
