Christ the King

I am out of my home parish this weekend, actually visiting what was my parish for two years back in the 1980s. The Mass was an unusual experience of a blending between the old and the new, the traditional and the contemporary.  The vestments and Liturgy of the Eucharist had all the extras available; the presentation of the pastor was dramatic.

It was remarkable in that the church building was built in the 1880s and retains all its finery — statues, color, windows, altars, etc. etc.  It is beautiful to say the least, and perhaps credit should be given the the Franciscans who were present at the parish for 150 years (until last year when diocesan priests took over).

Today is the Solemnity of Christ the King.  King of the universe, king of all who accept him. The unknown king of those who don’t. 

Enthroned on the cross, enthroned in our hearts, enthroned at the right hand of the Father in heaven.

Happy Feast day to all of you.
