Now, more than ever, we pray to the Lord for unity in our country and in our families. We ask you to join with Archbishop José Gomez on Sunday, November 22 to celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King.
United as one family in Christ, we are assured that Christ reigns as King today and always. Christ is our hope and our salvation. Together, we are united in Christ.
Solemnity of Christ the King Mass
Sunday, November 22, 2020
Background on the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
In its core document, Our First, Most Cherished Liberty: A Statement on Religious Liberty, the USCCB Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty “urge[d] that the Solemnity of Christ the King-a feast born out of resistance to totalitarian incursions against religious liberty-be a day specifically employed by bishops and priests to preach about religious liberty, both here and abroad.”
Let us pray fervently that we will help others encounter anew Christ, our King, bringing the Gospel to the margins of society, that all might bear witness to Him before others.
