Feast of Christ the King

     The Liturgical Year culminates in the celebration of the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. This feast marks the end of the Liturgical Year with the tone not of fear or despair, but one of hope. The themes are of hope and of the here after. These themes continue into the Advent season. We are given a new beginning for self-examination and renewal and to prepare for the two-fold coming:
1) remembrance of Christ's first coming as an infant at Christmas and
2) Christ's Second Coming and our Final Judgment.
