I am not making this up. According to Christian Today, and verified by my Polish friend Malgorzata, the Polish government just accepted Jesus Christ as the country’s king:
Jesus has been declared King of Poland in a ceremony attended by the country’s president Andrzej Duda.
The ceremony was held at the Church of Divine Mercy in Krakow on Saturday and the liturgy was repeated in churches across the country the following day.
According to the Conference of Polish Bishops, it was timed to coincide with the end of the Catholic Church’s Jubilee Year of Mercy and 1050th anniversary of Polish Christianity.
The ceremony included the prayer: “In our hearts, rule us, Christ! In our families, rule us, Christ! … In our schools and universities, rule us, Christ! … Through the Polish nation, rule us, Christ! … We pledge to defend your holy worship and preach Thy royal glory, Christ our King, we promise!”
It continued: “We entrust the Polish people and Polish leaders to you. Make them exercise their power fairly and in accordance with your laws. … rule us, Christ! Reign in our homeland and reign in every nation – for the greater glory of the Most Holy Trinity and the salvation of mankind.”
Good God! This of course came from a revelation experienced by a Polish nurse Rosalia Zelkova, who, early in the 20th century, heard voices that told her that Jesus demanded, as a condition for the salvation of Poland in the upcoming war, that he be recognized as the King of Poland. What an arrogant S.O.B. Jesus was!
Right-wing legislators in Poland tried this trick in 2006 but failed, opposed by the Church itself. Now that the Catholic Church has huge power in Poland with the new government’s assent, there was no problem with this declaration.
When I wrote Malgorzata asking if this could be true, she responded:
The story about Jesus becoming the King of Poland is absolutely true. Half of the Polish government was in attendance. This was the reason Andrzej wrote a huge article the other day about “Islam envy” of Polish clergy. The situation here is more absurd than it ever was since the fall of Communism, and we are quickly becoming a theocracy.
But do you know that we already have a Queen of Poland and it is none other than Mary, Jesus’s mother? She was taken as a Queen of Poland on April 1, 1656 by the then king, Jan Kazimierz. Three hundred years later, on August 26, 1956 , the Polish Church hierarchy, in the presence of about 1 million believers, repeated the pledge to her as Polish Queen. So now we have both a Queen and a King ruling together. Here is what Polish Wikipedia says about it (unfortunately, there’s no English version):
