Lectionary Catechesis: Solemnity of Christ the King, November 20, 2016

This new feast was created in 1925 by Pius XI and renamed by Paul VI in 1969 as “Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe.” Its origins are rooted in numerous Biblical texts of messianic expectation and in the Nicene Creed, “and his kingdom shall be without end.” The readings here connect this kingship with service, especially the service of reconciliation and making peace.
