O Rex Gentium/O King of nations

O Rex Gentium,
et desideratus earum,
lapisque angularis,
qui facis utraque unum:
veni, et salva hominem,
quem de limo formasti.

O King of nations,
the ruler they long for,
the cornerstone uniting all people:
Come and save us all,
whom you formed out of clay.

Jesus is both King and Cornerstone. As King, he governs by His gracious reign of forgiveness and peace as the King of kings. As Cornerstone, He sets all the angles square and unites His church together as one in spite of our sad divisions.
We all long for a leader (need I stress this during these recent days?).  We need a leader with courage, integrity, honesty, humility, sound judgement and just reasoning.  We long for a leader with these qualifications. So did the Jewish people!  When Christ arrived, we gained not only a leader of the people [all people] but experienced the incarnation of ultimate divine Love.

Christ became the cornerstone upon the early church was built.  Even though Christianity has taken on new dimensions, concentrations and expressions, Christ remains the cornerstone, essential for the foundation.  We can build on Him because we were made human and through Baptism are made children of the most Holy God.  May we be strong, dependable stones - part of our community, our country, our world.  May we serve each other worthy and well and may Christ uphold our lives and spirits!
