This Sunday we commemorate Christ the King—the culmination of the Church's year.

We followed the drama from the birth of Jesus through his life of teaching and healing to his suffering and death. We rejoiced in his resurrection. We shared the life of the Spirit at Pentecost. We’ve sought to share the Gospel’s staggering implications through all the Ordinary Time of the church in the world.

As we finish the Church year we look to the end, not merely as conclusion, but completion…the perfection, the fulfilment of the purpose toward which all that Jesus said and did was directed. We anticipate the day when his glory and power as King will be fully revealed.

This is something about which to be truly thankful.
