Giving thanks to God the Father, who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, In whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins; Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

For in him were all things created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominations, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him and in him.

And he is before all, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he may hold the primacy:

Because in him, it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell; And through him to reconcile all things unto himself, making peace through the blood of his cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in heaven.
Colossians 1:12-20
[The firstborn: That is, first begotten; as the Evangelist declares, the only begotten of his Father: hence, St. Chrysostom explains firstborn, not first created, as he was not created at all, but born of his Father before all ages; that is, coeval with the Father and with the Holy Ghost.] Source: The Douay-Rheims Bible
Act of Dedication of the Human Race to Jesus Christ King (Iesu dulcissime, Redemptor)
Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before you. We are yours, and yours we wish to be; but to be more surely united with you, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to your Most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known you; many, too, despising your precepts, have rejected you.

Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to your Sacred Heart. Be King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken you, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned you; grant that they may quickly return to their Fatherís house, lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and the unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.

Grant, O Lord, to your Church, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give tranquility of order to all nations; make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever. Amen
A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who piously recite the Act of Dedication of the Human Race to Jesus Christ King. A plenary indulgence is granted, if it is recited publicly on the feast of our Lord Jesus Christ King. Enchiridion of Indulgences, June 29, 1968
Last Judgment, triptych altarpiece, by Hans Memling; 1467-1471; Muzeum Narodowe, Gdansk, Poland

The center panel is depicted in two parts. Christ sits in Judgment of the world upon a rainbow, the sign of the covenant with Noah after the Great Flood, flanked by the Blessed Virgin Mary and John the Baptist, together with the Twelve Apostles. The angels hovering above hold the the instruments of the Passion. The lily is the symbol of innocence; the red sword the symbol of guilt and final impenitence. Between heaven and earth angels announce the day of the Last Judgment. At the bottom there is a vast meadow bordered by a glowing horizon with Saint Michael the Archangel who weighs the souls and separates humanity according to the sentence of the Just Judge. To the right of Saint Michael, devils push a crowd of sinners down to Hell, as depicted in the right panel. The opposite, left panel depictes the saved being welcomed into heaven by Saint Peter who stands at the foot of crystal stairs leading to the gates of Paradise, flanked by angels. http://en.wikipedia.org; http://web.archive.org
Salvator Mundi by Titian; 1570; Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg

Salvator Mundi, or Saviour of the World, is a subject in iconography depicting Christ with his right hand raised in blessing and his left hand holding an orb surmounted by a cross, known as a globus cruciger. The latter symbolizes the Earth, and the whole composition has eschatological undertones (pertaining to the destiny of humankind, concerning death, judgment, heaven and hell, as revealed in the Bible.) http://en.wikipedia.org
