Sunday Sermon, November 25 -- Christ, the King of Every Heart and Every Nation (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

Pope Pius XI instituted the feast of Christ the King to affirm that Jesus is not only the king of every individual, but also of every nation. As our Lady had revealed at Fatima, there will only be peace when every nation and all peoples submit to the reign of Christ the King, and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

If we desire Christ to be the King of our hearts, we might do well to consider the precepts of the Church and, during this coming Advent season, take a small step forward in each of these areas.

Rather than confession once a year, try once a month (or more). Not only communion once a year, but weekly time in adoration. Not merely Mass on Sundays and Holy Days, but even once or twice a week. In addition to abstaining from meat on Fridays, add extra penance on Wednesdays and Saturdays during Advent. And, in addition to your regular giving to the Church and to the needy, make an extra end-of-the-year gift, to express your thanks to God for having given everything to you.
