….honours Christ as Lord and King of all.
Christus Rex. Christus Regnat.
Pope Pius XI instituted the Solemnity of Christ the King on 11 December 1925 in his encyclical Quas Primas. At that time he saw the rise of atheistic 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.
Our parish held its annual parish BBQ today. Last year’s BBQ was also on this day – a great day, in the liturgical year, for a church community get together, don’t you think?
A lot of fun. Especially the games. I suck at sack races. 🙂
I’ll try to post pics later.
And, you know, the BBQ and the Solemnity allowed various things to come up . About depression. And living with depression. Living with a family member who is depressed.
This article addresses some of these issues. Some tips ~
