The Feast of Christ the King 2018

Holy Mass followed by Candlelit Eucharistic

STREET PROCESSION 

How blessed are we to have Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Our King. Yes, we call

Him Lord and King and rightfully so. However, in the liturgy this feast reminds

us how blessed we are to have a King who loves us so much that he was willing to suffer

unimaginable pains to demonstrate something of His unfathomable and infinite love for

us. Yet this same Jesus, this same God, who is so full of tenderness and mercy, so

compassionate to all who call upon Him is at the same time our most all powerful God

who holds all things in existence.

This Feast reminds us that all the kingdoms of the earth, all the riches of this world

are but nothing compared to His Love. We are reminded that there is a more important

kingdom that is eternal in which the least in that Kingdom is more blessed than all the rich

and famous people in the world.

How do we respond to the glories of the Kingship of Christ? We could be moved to a deep reverence and rightfully so, but Jesus would want more than this. He seeks our heart. He seeks our love. Our King is completely conquered by love. He melts so to speak when we, feeling our littleness, place our trust completely in His loving kindness.

 

It is a wonderful thing to honour the Kingship of Christ.

 

In an approved apparition to mother Eugenia in 1932 it was said; “I desire you to celebrate this feast of the Kingship of My Son in reparation for the insults He received before Pilate and from the soldiers who scourged his holy and innocent humanity..I ask you...to celebrate it enthusiastically and fervently...”

 

This year a wonderful solemn Mass with Bishop Mark Edwards, and a grand street procession is being planned so that we can go someway towards honouring Christ the King. Of course we could never give enough external honour to Christ Our King. That is ok, since more than the external honour Jesus wants our love. When we come to honour Him on this day with hearts full of love, Jesus will look upon us so beautifully and bless us so much.

 

With the street procession returning we will once again have the special opportunity to publicly declare our love of Christ, and we know what Jesus in His goodness proclaimed: “If anyone openly declares himself for Me in the presence of men, the Son of Man will declare Himself for him in the presence of God’s angels.” (Lk 12: 8) Most importantly it will be a Eucharistic Procession. We know that God is so pleased with Eucharistic Processions. For example, most of the healings in Lourdes occur during their Eucharistic Processions.

The Mass will begin at 7.30pm. At the conclusion of the Mass there will be the beautiful candlelit Eucharistic Procession that will go out onto the streets surrounding the Cathedral.

 

Please do your utmost to spread the word, be a willing servant of Christ the King, come with joy and thanksgiving, and store up for yourself a great reward in heaven.
