An open letter regarding the enthronement of Jesus Christ as King of Poland and King of the other nations of the world
I would hereby like to express my wish for Christ to be enthroned by the Polish Episcopate and the Parliament as King of Poland. I also wish that other countries of the world follow us in enthroning Jesus Christ as their King.
This idea stems in a clear and obvious way from the message bequeathed by my compatriot (and fellow citizen, as Jachówka borders on my parish of Maków), Rozalia Celakówna, inspired by Our Lord Jesus shortly before World War Two. Almost seventy years have passed since Jesus Christ's appeal, requesting the Reedemer's enthronement or coronation by the Polish nation as her KING and LORD, an act to be accomplished by the nation's ecclesiastical and state authorities. Other nations and states of the world should follow suit, if such is their will.
The act accomplished first by the Polish nation should set the example for other nations of Europe and the world to follow. All this should prevent, in Christ's own words, the world's self-annihilation through wars and disasters. 'Only these states shall not perish that accomplish the enthronement' (Rozalia Celakówna, Memoirs). As a witness of the extermination of a neighbouring country, Germany, and many countries of Western Europe, I raise the alarm. As a Catholic, imbued with the spirit of love towards my fellow man, I feel bound by my conscience to issue a warning to the world's nations, a warning not only against destruction, but also against eternal damnation. My soul is like Benjamin's, since my country is one of the youngest states of the European civilisation, and therefore I speak as the youngest member of the family.
Europe, listen! To you are we, the Poles, grateful for the faith, the cultural heritage and the economic legacy. We are grateful to you for all that. Listen to Benjamin. Europe, you have gone astray. Within your soul you are not what you appear to be. The devil and his sons have led you astray. You will perish unless you listen. 'Look towards Eastern Europe', said Holy Virgin through the late Sister Lúcia of Jesus to Pope John Paul II.
An immense service was rendered to Poland by the King John II Kasimir at the period of the Swedish invasion and great national betrayal. The monarch enthroned the Holy Virgin as the Queen of Poland and Lithuania. The enthronement was accomplished with great contribution from the Polish Jesuit Saint Andrew Bobola. These days moral decay and betrayal of Motherland represent a new deluge ravaging our country and call for proclaiming Jesus Christ as King of Poland. It is impossible to break free from this emerging evil empire if we rely solely on our human strength. Thus Holy Virgin, the Queen is leading us to Christ, the King. An intermediary of grace, She will again embarrass those who chose to serve wrong masters.
The great work of enthronement entails acknowledging the Divine law as superior over the state law and to be observed by those in authority: the President, the cabinet, the Seym and the "fourth power", as the media are called, as well as those who have been shaping the course of history for the past two centuries with no regard for either God or man. Only the enthronement put into practice is a chance for the development of the Country. As Pope Pius XII wrote in his encyclical Summi pontificatus, 'At the head of the road which leads to the spiritual and moral bankruptcy of the present day stand the nefarious efforts of not a few to dethrone Christ'. What is meant here are not only Christ's royal qualities as expressed in worship, but also his power over the rulers of this world. In the same vein the current Pope Benedict XVI addressed a one million crowd of young people gathered in the Cracow Blonia Park, 'Jesus is frequently ignored and ridiculed, is announced to have been a king of the past and not to be the king of the present, let alone of tomorrow, is pushed into the junk room of issues and personages that should not be mentioned aloud and publicly.' (Cracow, 27 May 2006). From my evangelical and patriotic perspective, I can see a deadly menace to the very existence of the Nation.
Half a century ago, the effigies of Divine Mercy were being removed from churches for the sake of maintaining the purity of worship and protecting the Church from alleged embarrassment caused by implementing 'bizarre ideas of some unknown nun' in religious practice. Today Sister Faustina has been canonized and the Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy is a magnet for pilgrims from all over the world. Thus we are witnessing the fulfilment of Christ's prophecy mediated by Saint Faustina:
'I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Saviour' (Sister Faustina, Diary, p.82).
