       This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. It is the last Sunday of the Liturgical Year. The Solemnity of Christ the King  is a Holy Day in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. This feast was instituted by Pope Pius XI on 11 December in 1925 in his encyclical ''Quas Primas''. At that time he saw the rise of Atheism, Communism and Secularism as a direct result of man's turning away from Christ's sovereignty, and man's denying of the authority of Christ's Church. This result was "disorder" or a move away from the Divine Order. The Feast of Christ the King was set on the last Sunday in October. After the Second Vatican Council, the calendar reforms of 1969 moved the date of the Feast of Christ the King to the last Sunday before the next liturgical year's Advent (Advent marking the start of the liturgical year; Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas Day. Before this change, the Sunday before Advent bore the designation "Last Sunday After Pentecost" and had its own special Mass), regardless of the number of Sundays there were between Pentecost and Advent (23 to 28) in that particular year.

4th Sunday of every month at 3:30 p.m. in our church. 
       This Sunday, November 22, at 3.30PM, Holy Mass will be said for the Marian Movement of Priests (this is a movement for lay people, priests and religious who wish to pray for priests), followed by Holy Hour with Benediction afterwards. Please come to pray for our priests. Everybody is welcome. Please inform and invite others. Next month Marian Movement Mass: Dec. 27, 2008, at 3.30pm.
Text Box: Sunday Scripture
       Christ is King over all creation. Christ reigns over all creation. From His throne of the Cross he won for us forgiveness; by his Resurrection he defeated death. He now sits at the right hand of the Father in triumph. As His disciples, we are to make Christ the King of our lives so that we, too, may come to share in eternal life.
         In the first reading, Daniel has a vision of one like a Son of man who will rule over all things forever. In Revelation, we are told Jesus is ruler of the earth's kings. He is the Alpha and the Omega–the Almighty One. In the Gospel, Pilate examines Jesus, questioning if he is a king. Jesus states that his kingship is not of this world.
