We are very excited to announce the next novena that starts Friday, November 13th!
It is the perfect novena to pray as we end this liturgical year and begin the next one very soon…
This novena will give us an opportunity to re-order our lives, our hearts and our minds to our Lord.
It’s kind of like a novena for new (Liturgical) year’s resolutions!
The feast of Christ the King is movable, and is celebrated on the last Sunday of the Liturgical year. This feast day was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 within his encyclical letter, Quas Primas.
St. John Paul II spoke about this feast, and the title of Christ the King, in a homily from 2000. Here’s a little bit of what he said:
“You are King! But your kingdom is not of this world… Yours is a “kingdom of truth and life, a kingdom of holiness and grace, a kingdom of justice, love and peace,” which will be revealed in its fullness at the end of time, when God will be all in all. The Church, which can already taste on earth the first fruits of this future fulfillment, never ceases to repeat: “Adveniat regnum tuum”, “Thy kingdom come.”
During this novena, we will pray that we may all allow Christ the King to truly be our king: to reign in our hearts, our minds, our wills, and our lives.
