Liturgy: Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King (YrA)
The liturgical year ends with this Solemnity in which we honour Christ as the king of the universe. If the concept of kingship seems out-dated we should see it as a feast in which we honour Christ not as a king of power and might but as a king who comes to serve his people, and it is the whole question of service on which we ourselves shall be judged at the end of time. Read the Gospel and put this question to yourself: would you pass the test?
Reflection: Sunday Plus
- Hail redeemer, king divine
