Feast of Christ the King (Year A)

The feast of Christ the King is a fitting end for the Church’s liturgical year. It triumphantly proclaims the victory of Christ as sovereign over sin and death and reminds us that he is also Lord of the whole universe, of which our earth is a very small part. It resonates with echoes of Christ as Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the holder of the keys of life and death. 

Yet the one place that Christ desires to be king is in the hearts of all men and women. When our will and his are in unison, he is able to make his home more fully within us, the reality of his kingship transforming our lives. Where he is King, there his kingdom flourishes.
