The King of the Universe

When the mass starts with the sign of the cross and the words, “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, I am translated into another, unfailing, world. So, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son,” I rejoice in the certainty that the power of the cross in myself, you, my children, The Donald – and everything else – achieves for us all things good and glorious, ad vitam aeternam.

But how often and how ardently have I wished this cross out of existence? And how many times will I again?!
