Feast Of Christ The King 2021
We are subjects of Christ, our King, and as such we are grateful to assist at this feast day and to follow Him faithfully. Pope Pius XI instituted this feast almost a century ago and placed it before All Saints day. This highlights His authority over the saints and encourages us to pray to them for their intercession. The encyclical of the pope teaches about the basis of Our Lord’s Kingship in the Incarnation. It explains His three fold powers as executor, legislator and judge. His is a gentle rule over the hearts of men and in due time He rescues us. On our part, we must never compromise what our King has asked us to do and the best way to honor Him is by denying ourselves, taking up our crosses daily and following Him into His heavenly kingdom.
