The Feast of Christ the King

Pope Francis has described the heart as the place where we are truly ourselves and that this is where God meets us, if we let Him. When we allow Christ into our lives – when we allow Him to become the King of our hearts – we experience the joy, peace, mercy and love that He brings.

We are all God’s children. We are all brothers and sisters – members of one big global family. And Jesus is saying that he is in each one of us. And so, every time we help someone else, every time we treat someone kindly, welcome them or share with them, then we are doing this to Jesus.

The Feast of Christ the King marks the end of Church’s liturgical year. The year ends on a real high point and celebrates the Kingdom of God in all its richness before beginning the new Liturgical year with the reflective and penitential season of Advent.
