A Prayer To Christ The King

Lord, Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King, the beginning and end of all things, you have made your Church to be a people that bears witness to the goodness and beauty of your kingdom. By your Holy Spirit, you have united us as one body, called to live as one family of God. Fill our hearts with your grace, that we would be close to you by being close to the vulnerable and marginalized. Give us the patience to share one another’s burdens and give us the courage to always be friends of the truth. May we remain with you always. Amen.

Solemnity of Christ The King

Today is The Solemnity Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King Of The Universe. Formerly referred to as “Christ the King,” was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man’s thinking and living and organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ’s royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations.
