Solemnity of Christ the King

"The reign of Christ is a 'kingdom of justice, love and peace.' For a Christian, speaking of power and strength means referring to the power of the Cross, and the strength of Jesus' love: a love which remains steadfast and complete, even when faced with rejection, and it is shown as the fulfillment of a life expended in the total surrender of oneself for the benefit of humanity."

– Pope Francis

On this last weekend of the church year, we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. This feast reminds us that Jesus reigns as king forever. To acknowledge the kingship of Christ means that we should work towards building up our Churches of the Home, enhancing all the communities in which we live with the love of God, and bringing healing to a broken world. We must work every day, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to bring about the humble Kingdom of God upon the earth.

  • How are you being called to promote the Reign of Christ in the world today?

  • How have you experienced God’s boundless love and tenderness over this past year?
