“Popes and Kings, prelates and rulers of nations, the faithful of the Church and citizens of States all must return, in a palingenesis [renewal] moved by Grace, to Christ,
to Christ the King and Pontiff, to the one Avenger of the true rights of His people, to the one Protector of the weak and oppressed, to the one Conqueror of death and sin.”
(Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, December 17, 2022).
The surest way to bring this renewal is to recognize the Reign of Jesus King of All Nations on earth and to enthrone His Image.
At a time when our secular Culture of Death is prevalent, it is very appropriate to enthrone and venerate the Image of Jesus King of All Nations.
One of our supporters wrote to me, “I wanted you to know that I ordered the Enthronement Ceremony materials. I firmly believe that this Devotion is urgently needed for our times.”
A mother wept while venerating the Image of Jesus King of All Nations and cried out, “My family is so broken! There’s no hope for my family. They are all broken by modern society!” Our hope is in Jesus King of All Nations, who promises us hope and peace in the messages of His Secretary’s Journal through the Enthronement of His Image.
You too can show your belief in the Devotion by making Jesus’ requested Enthronement and by responding to His request to, “Take up my Devotion of Jesus King of All Nations, for in its practice you shall find for yourselves a haven of grace, mercy, and protection. Enthrone this my Image everywhere for I shall be powerfully present there and the power of my sovereign Kingship shall surely shield you from my just judgment.” (Journal 418). There is hope for the world!
Jesus King of All Nations said, for those who embrace His Devotion, “I will cover them with my kingly mantle that my perfect justice may not reach them as it will reach those who abandon my law. (Journal 318). My children, dear children, do not despair. There is always hope. (Journal 319). I have told you of the remedy. That of the public practice of my Devotion and veneration of my Image.” (Journal 671).
Jesus King of All Nations also said, “My Kingdom, my Reign, is near at hand. My most holy Mother is preparing the great triumph. The Triumph of her Immaculate Heart ushers in the Reign of my love and mercy. (Journal 7, 14). My Spirit shall once more descend in a New Pentecost; a New Pentecost replete with the cleansing fire of His love. A fire ablaze with the love and justice of God. (Journal 496). Let it also be known that a great renewal of my Holy Church, of Mankind, and, indeed, of All Creation will follow the cleansing action of my justice.” (Journal 414).
“Be strong and do not lose hope. I AM with you to save you.” (Journal 419). “Pray, pray, pray! Do not lose hope my people! Do not surrender your holy faith! Stay close to me in the holy Eucharist! Stay close to me through my Immaculate Mother! I AM here for you! I AM here with you! Trust in me utterly for I love you.” (Journal 468). “Do not lose hope my children. Though it seems all is lost it is not so. I AM the Lord and master of history and the times ever unfold under the power of my Almighty hand.” (Journal 798).
Enthrone This My Image Everywhere!
Jesus King of All Nations wants us to have hope, to protect us and to save us. He requested that we enthrone His Image everywhere. He said, “Let my holy Image be enthroned everywhere! Within shrines, churches, homes, religious communities, hospitals, offices, and, indeed, within the very heart of man! This Image represents the totality of my divine offices: Victim-High Priest, True Prophet, and Sovereign King and, as such, calls down the blessing of my Almighty Father.” (Journal 561). “When one venerates this Image, my Sacred Heart and my Divine Mercy are also venerated.” (Journal 554).
In order to help you to respond to the request of Jesus, I authored an Enthronement Ceremony and obtained materials consisting of an Image of your choice; a Medal of your choice; and an Enthronement Ceremony booklet.
Enthronement of the Image of Jesus King of All Nations is a solemn act by which the participants enthrone, display, honor and venerate His image. They give formal recognition of the Kingship of Christ over their lives, and their families, home, offices, parishes, schools etc. The Enthronement Ceremony is the official, ceremonial beginning of their commitment to live out the effects of their recognition of Christ’s Kingship. He wants to Reign in all hearts and He wants His Reign to be recognized on Earth. Your Enthronement will hasten His Reign!
Jesus King of All Nations said, “My daughter, great are the graces which will be granted through the proper veneration of this Image of Mine.” (Journal 6-7). “This Image is to be a sign that I rule Heaven and earth, and my Kingdom, my Reign, is near at hand. . . . I give this Image to mankind as a source of graces and of peace.” (Journal 7, 14, 159-160). “This Image, my child, must become known. My daughter, those souls who venerate this Image of Mine will be blessed with my peace.” (Journal 7, 14-15).
Images are only paintings, regardless of their beauty. However, they can be signs of Jesus, Mary or the saints and the mysteries of our faith, a means of reminding us of them, and “vehicles” of God’s graces.
Jesus said, “To enable my children, who are feeble, to come to Me the more easily, I give them ‘reminders’, images of myself, in one form or another. The Image of myself as ‘Jesus King of All Nations’, is a gift of Love from my Heart to my children, intended to put before their minds the remembrance of Me and therefore help them to hold Me close in their hearts as my Most Holy Mother did so perfectly when she was on earth. When in the mind, the ‘Image’ remains but an idea, but once the soul allows it to take root and grow in the heart, it becomes a living faith, a living reality, a living love.” (Journal, Preface).
Jesus invited us to pray before His Image, He said, “My children, come before my Image and pray for your countries. Pray for your people. Pray for your families. Pray for my Mercy which I will graciously grant to those peoples and nations that acknowledge Me as True King! I AM your sure refuge in these most evil and truly dangerous times.” (Journal 24).
Jesus warned us, “Violence, wars and hatred will grow yet greater until finally mankind will bring upon himself a great punishment, then will follow the chastisement that will fall directly from heaven. Embrace my Devotion of Jesus King of All Nations for it is a great mercy given by your God for these most perilous times. Yours is the choice. I leave you free to accept or reject both my admonition and my gift.” (Journal 375, 376, 379).
At the Ascension of Jesus into heaven, as His apostles were looking on, “He was lifted up, and a cloud took Him out of their sight.” (See Acts 1:9).
“To lift up” was originally used in the Old Testament. It refers to royal enthronement. So, the Ascension of Jesus into heaven means that He was lifted up and enthroned in heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, as the King of All Nations. (See Pope Benedict XVI, Homily at Monte Cassino, May 24, 2009).
During the Enthronement Ceremony of the Image of Jesus King of All Nations, the Image is not actually placed on a real throne. It is “royally enthroned” by lifting it up and “enthroning” it by displaying it in a place of honor for veneration.
The Enthronement and veneration of His image will help to realize the requests of Jesus. The participants make reparation for the enemies of Jesus who mockingly adored Him in His Passion. The participants recognize Him as their True King in this Enthronement Ceremony.
Leader’s Duties and Enthronement Suggestions
The Leader’s duties are to organize the Enthronement; choose a date and obtain from our Apostolate the Image and medals of Jesus King of All Nations, the Enthronement Ceremony booklets and other religious goods of the Jesus King All Nations Devotion that will be for sale.
The Leader and the participants should have the Enthronement Ceremony booklet found HERE.
Jesus King of All Nations did not reveal any rules regarding how to enthrone His image, or any contents or formulas for the Enthronement Ceremony, or any prayers to be recited during it.
The Director of the Devotion, Dan Lynch, is the author of the Jesus King of All Nations Devotion Enthronement Ceremony booklet. This booklet contains an Introduction to the Enthronement; Preparation for the Enthronement Ceremony; The Rite of Solemn Enthronement, with accompanying Scriptures and prayers; and The Pledge and Certificate of Enthronement. The Leader leads and the other participants respond in unison as indicated in the booklet.
All of the contents of that booklet are Dan Lynch’s personal suggestions and are not mandatory for any Enthronement Ceremony.
Preparation for the Enthronement Ceremony
There must be a Leader to organize and explain the Enthronement Ceremony to the participants (family, office personnel, parish priests and personnel, etc.) The Enthronement Ceremony is the official, ceremonial beginning of their commitment to live out the effects of their recognition of His Kingship.
If a priest won’t be present for the Enthronement Ceremony, the Jesus King of All Nations Image (found HERE) and medals (found HERE) should be blessed by a priest before the ceremony. The Images and the Medals are shown below.
Before the day of the Enthronement Ceremony, participants should obtain and read the Enthronement Ceremony booklet, (found HERE) and pray the Chaplet of Unity (found HERE) for each of the three preceding days. The Enthronement Ceremony booklet is shown below.
All participants should try to attend Mass on the day of Enthronement and receive the Eucharist.
Each participant should have a Rosary, and, if possible, wear a blessed Jesus King of All Nations Medal.
The Enthronement Ceremony will take approximately 45 minutes. If the Leader thinks that this is too long for the participants, he or she may shorten it one half-hour by eliminating the praying of the Chaplet of Unity, although this is not recommended.
The Leader should consider planning a post Enthronement meal or refreshments with the participants.
Six Steps Summary of Leader’s Duties
- Organize the Enthronement Ceremony; choose a date and obtain from our Apostolate the Image and medals of Jesus King of all Nations, the Enthronement Ceremony booklets and other religious goods for sale.
- Try to obtain a priest to bless the home, and the Image and to lead the Enthronement Ceremony. If a priest won’t be present for the Enthronement Ceremony, the Image and the medals could be blessed by a priest before the ceremony.

- Choose a place of honor in the home to enthrone the Image; prepare a “throne” (a table; a mantelpiece; a wall place; etc.;) cover it with white cloth and the Image; a bottle of Holy Water; decorate it with flowers and candles; and, if there is no priest, lead the Enthronement Ceremony and the prayers contained in the Enthronement Ceremony booklet. An example of a “throne” is shown on the cover of the booklet.
- Be sure that the Leader and priest, if any, and the participants have the Enthronement Ceremony booklet. The Leader or priest leads and the other participants respond in unison as indicated in the booklet. Then the Leader or priest leads the Rite of Solemn Enthronement; sprinkles the image with Holy Water; and “enthrones” (displays) the image in the place of honor prepared for it. This is the symbolic Act of Enthronement.
- Then the Leader leads the rest of the Enthronement Ceremony.

The First Public Enthronement of the
Jesus King of All Nations Image
A pastor in the Midwest announced to his congregation that a” tremendous event “was going to take place at his parish, an Enthronement of the Jesus King of All Nations Image. He said, “We need Him! He is Lord of lords and King of kings!”
As he was encouraging all to come, a lady leaned over and said to her friend, “I can’t wait to come!”
The “tremendous event “was the first public Enthronement Ceremony of the Jesus King All Nations Image. It consisted of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament; the incensing of the Image; an explanation of the Enthronement Ceremony; followed by a procession with the Image; the recitation of the Rite of Solemn Enthronement by the pastor and the faithful, and the blessing of the Image.
The congregation responded loudly to the prayers of the pastor which were followed by silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, many confessions, and Benediction. A witness remarked that everyone was smiling: men, women, and children, and that many made comments regarding the Image such as “He’s so beautiful!”
