Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe: "The day will come in which there will no more exist power of any kind"

"Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
The good thief met Jesus Christ on the "deathbed" of his cross and acted decisively with a choice for the Kingdom. We meet Christ in Word and Sacrament in the holy Mass which gives us the responsibility of also making a choice for or against Christ. There is no middle way.
And there will come a day when all kingdoms based on worldly power will cease and our choice will determine our destiny.
"Among the other things I said to him," recounted the arrested one "that whatever power there is represents violence against men, and that there will come a day in which there will not be any power of the Caesars, nor any other kind of power. Man will enter into a reign of truth and justice, where there will no more be need of any power."
