His coronation did not come by earthly decree, but through his resurrection and ascension. Therefore, his way of conquering the world’s kingdoms is also revolutionary. He doesn’t do it through an iron fist or a velvet glove; He does it through his faithful witnesses–the kingly priesthood and holy nation, the Church. . . . Jesus’ cross-shaped life and death modeled the cruciform life that is our calling. Like Him, we do not overcome imperial powers through earthly means. Instead, we embody His ‘revolutionary way of being revolutionary.’ Whether the world receives or rejects us will hold little weight if we are incarnating his way of being and doing, for his sake and their.”
