Christ the King Sunday Including The Sacrament of Holy Communion
Sunday November 25, 2018 @ 11:00 am
The festival of Christ the King (or Reign of Christ) ends our marking of Ordinary Time after the Day of Pentecost, and moves us to the threshold of Advent, the season of hope for Christ’s coming.
The day centers on the crucified and risen Christ, whom God exalted to rule over the whole universe. The celebration of the Lordship of Christ thus looks back to Ascension, Easter, and Transfiguration, and points ahead to the appearing in glory of the King of kings and Lord of lords. Christ reigns supreme. Christ’s truth judges falsehood. As the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, Christ is the center of the universe, the ruler of all history. In Christ all things began, and in Christ all things will be fulfilled. In the end, God will heal every brokenness. God will save every good and triumph over all forces of evil.
