The Feast of Christ the King ~ November 24, 2013

November 24, 2013 is the last Sunday of the liturgical year.  It's also our "Youth Mass" for the month.

We're celebrating "The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe" also known as "The Feast of Christ the King".  From what I've read in preparation for this day, I've learned a few things.





1 - "The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ's royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations."  (I found this explanation here.)

2 - About.com explains it this way - "The Feast of Christ the King is a moveable feast.  It is celebrated on the final Sunday of the liturgical year, which is the last Sunday before Advent starts."

The song suggestions make more sense to me now.  Our song suggestions for November 24th are:  (I've included YouTube links in case you want to listen to the songs.)

Holy, Holy, Holy  -  All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name
Lord of the Dance  -  Behold the Lamb
The Supper of the Lord  -  Unless a Grain of Wheat
Crown Him with Many Crowns
Rejoice, the Lord Is King  -  How Great Thou Art
