Holy Mass and  Candlelit Eucharistic STREET PROCESSION to Honour Christ The King

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  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 entire world.

How do we respond to the glories of the Kingship of Christ?  We should  be moved to a deep reverence and this would be most fitting, but Jesus wants us to go even further than this.  He wants us to,come with our hearts on fire with  love for Him, to become completely united with  Him.  

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 and a grand Eucharistic street procession is being planned so that we can go someway towards honouring Christ the King. Jesus looks at our intentions and considers our efforts.  On this day let us come out of pure love of Jesus and joyfully acclaim Our King. Jesus will look upon us so lovingly and bless us so much. 

 

With the street procession 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 the Eucharistic Processions.

 

This is our opportunity to bring our families; yes, the very young infants, the elderly and everyone in between are all encouraged to participate.  Please spread the word amongst parishes your family members and your friends, to honour our loving Saviour.
