New Book Explores the Richness of the Kingdom of Christ
After a Theology Congress organized in 2015 by the Theology Faculty of the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical Athenaeum in Rome, a group of Regnum Christi Members including Fr. Pedro Barrajón, LC; Fr. Nicolas Bossu, LC; Fr. Andrew Dalton, LC; Fr. Nikola Derpich, LC; Mauro Gagliardi; Fr. David Koonce, LC; Emilio Martínez Albesa; Matteo Monfrinotti; Fr. José Enrique Oyarzún, LC; Fr. Devin Roza, LC; Angela Tagliafico; Laurent Touze; Fr. Cristobal Vilarroig, LC; and George Woodall came together to contribute to this work which explores the Kingdom of Christ in a deep and well-rounded way. The goal of the congress was a more profound understanding, biblically, theologically, and historically, of the Kingdom of Christ, to prepare for the Jubilee year of the 75th anniversary of the Legionaries of Christ in 2016, a religious congregation that forms part of the Regnum Christi Federation.
In these pages you will find studies on topics such as the history of the Feast of Christ the King in the 20th century, the devotion to Christ the King of the Spanish and Mexican martyrs of the 20th Century, the Kingdom of God and of Christ in Sacred Scripture, the relationship between the Church and the Kingdom of Christ, the meanings, symbols, and prefigurations of that Kingdom, the thought of Justin Martyr and Origen on the Kingship of Christ, the extension of the Kingdom of Christ as the goal of all apostolate, Christological aspects of the royalty of Christ, eschatological aspects of the Kingdom of Christ, Christ as King and his Kingdom in the thought of Sts. Teresa of Jesus and John of the Cross, and the relationship between the Kingdom of Christ and the social doctrine of the Church.
