Dimanche 22 novembre 2009

The solemnity of Christ the King closes the ordinary liturgical time, before the entry into the period of advent and the parérepair of the Nativity of our Lord.

Because a child was born to us, a son was given to us. Sovereignty is on his shoulders.
Isaiah 9.5

 

Christ, King of the universe

The solemnity of Christ the King was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925, while some States sought to distort Christianity or to make it forget. In the face of this long-standing seculaism, it was necessary to affirm that the Kingdom of Christ "opposes the Kingdom of Satan and the power of darkness", "that he calls for the thirst for righteousness", and that one is "detached from material riches". Today these same assertions resonate in a more positive climate. The secularism promoted by the head of State receiving Pope Benedict XVI recognizes that it "must hear" the social doctrine of the Church which is in "perfect resonance with the stakes of the globalised contemporary economy". It recognizes the role of religions in building humanity, and the importance of dialogue between faith and reason. So many steps towards the peace of which Christ is the King (Isaiah 9.5).
