3 Simple Ways to Celebrate The Solemnity of Christ The King

November 16, 2021

Feast day: 

Last Sunday before Advent
(it's the last Sunday of the Liturgical year!)

WHY WE CELEBRATE: 

Pope Pius XI instituted a special feast honoring Christ “the King” in 1925 after the world was ravaged by the horrors of World War I.

It's a feast to remind us that Jesus is the true King of Peace we long for, "who came to reconcile all things, who came not to be served but to serve." He reigns victorious over all of our sufferings, all war, all governments and authorities.

Even more, the Kingdom of Christ isn’t some far-off reality. We are living in that Kingdom now. We have access to his Kingdom now.

Viva Cristo Rey!

HONOR HIS KINGSHIP IN PRAYER

On the final Sunday of the liturgical year, we are invited to prepare our heart for the King of Kings. 

Advent is an even more humbling season when we enter it contemplating that the infinite majesty of God chose to become Emmanuel, God With Us, by entering the world as a vulnerable human baby.

 

HONOR HIM BY FASTING

Jesus gave His all for us, and held nothing back.

Sacrifice something substantial today in honor of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

Some ideas

  • Intermittent fasting 
  • Do not purchase anything today 
  • Unplug from inessential technology 
  • Eat very simply (bread, water, soup)
