Solemnity of Christ the King
Sunday, November 22, 2020
Reflection by: Fr. Salvator Stefula, T.O.R.
This week the Church celebrates the Feast of Christ the King, also called the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. This feast honors Jesus Christ as Lord over all creation. It is a magnification of the Feast of the Ascension. It was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925. The Pope instituted this feast to remind Christians that their allegiance was to their spiritual ruler in heaven as opposed to earthy supremacy. Pope Pius XI stated that Christ’s Kingship is not based on “human power” but on loving and serving others.
With the celebration of this feast, we conclude the Ordinary Time of the Liturgical Year and prepare for the next week when we begin the Holy Season of Advent.
May the Lord bless all of you and your families during this Advent Season as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus! God bless you and be safe.
