My teacher asked me to come up with a literature moment… When I fell in love with literature… How… When… Why… I thought I’d be a punctual student for once and actually write this down.
I remember we were doing this poem in school. I don’t remember the author or the poem. I think it was Robert Louis Stevenson and it was about going on a train. After we finished reading the poem I remember thinking, “Why couldn’t I have written this poem? Why didn’t these thoughts come into my head? In this rhythm. And if for a moment, if only for a moment, I felt as if all the literature in the world was mine, if only I could understand it, because I could feel how the author felt when he wrote it and it was such a wonderful feeling of being one with all that the world ever created in literary form. Unfortunately, this beauty acknowledgment turned into a frustration that i could not produce material as worthy as the text itself.
A similar incident occurred many years later when i was studying “In the secular night” by Margaret Atwood. I felt that she had embalmed all that I wanted to write that day when I read the poem. But today, the feeling was relief and an excitement that i could understand a writer’ voice so excruciatingly well that I didn’t have to explain in words what I had understood silently.
This encompasses my journey in literature, from one moment to another, where I have looked at the same incident differently each time, evolving and growing in the process.

Christ the King
Christ’s kingship was addressed in the encyclical Quas Primas of Pope Pius XI, published in 1925, which has been called “possibly one of the most misunderstood and ignored encyclicals of all time. ’Christ,’ he says, ‘has dominion over all creatures, a dominion not seized by violence nor usurped, but his by essence and by nature.’” Pope Pius XI instituted the feast of Christ the King in 1925 to remind Christians that their allegiance was to their spiritual ruler in heaven as opposed to earthly supremacy, which was claimed by Benito Mussolini.
Pope Benedict XVI has remarked that Christ’s kingship is not based on “human power” but on loving and serving others. The perfect exemplar of that acceptance, he pointed out, is the Virgin Mary. Her humble and unconditional acceptance of God’s will in her life, the Pope noted, was the reason that “God exalted her over all other creatures, and Christ crowned her Queen of heaven and earth. The Feast of Christ the King is celebrated on the last Sunday of the liturgical year.
