On the Solemnity of Christ the King we acknowledge and celebrate that God in Jesus Christ is above all earthly rulers; even those that seem all-powerful are as nothing compared to His glory and majesty. Mass will end with the devotion of Benediction in which Christ the King is enthroned for all to see. You can read the scripture readings for this week here.
