Solemnity of Christ the King

Nov 24th Solemnity of Christ the King

The Feast of Christ the King is celebrated on November 24. This was created by Pope Pius XI in 1925 because people were living as if Jesus Christ didn't exist. The feast proclaims how Jesus Christ is Royalty above people, communities, nations, and governments. Christ's kingdom in heaven is for everybody who wants to be with Him; and it's endless.

The feast establishes the titles for Christ's royalty over men: 

1) Christ is God and holds high power over everything; 
2) Christ is our Redeemer, He made us His by His blood and now we belong to Him; 
3) Christ is Head of the Church, 4) God bestowed upon Christ the nations of the world as His special possession and dominion

~Today more than ever this world lives as if Jesus was just 'someone' in history rather than the King of everything, including ETERNITY! Many can't even see beyond this world to realize that there truly IS another life and that it is WITHOUT END for those who love our glorious Triune God.  

"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the mind of man what God has prepared for those who love Him."
