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.
What does it mean for you to be a citizen in the Kingdom of Christ?
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?
Happy Thanksgiving from Resurrection

This is an initiative that will deliver weekly resources to Churches of the Home. These resources will give suggestions for how to Pray, Listen, Act and Ponder with a given topic throughout the course of each week. Project Nazareth will explore the fundamental Gospel message of the Sunday Mass and other special topics such as the Year of the Eucharist.

Ruby and Res
Ruby tried to figure out how to wear a crown to celebrate "Christ the King" this weekend. Thankfully God loves all of us even if we don't always wear our crowns correctly.
