Christ the King Novena

Christ the King Novena[This novena begins November 11th! Click here to join in prayer!] The Feast of Christ the King is a moveable feast that occurs on the last Sunday of the Liturgical year. It is an important feast for all of us! Let’s join in preparing for this feast with a Novena for Christ the King!

Background on this Feast

This feast day was instituted by Pope Pius XI on December 11th in 1925 within the encyclical letter Quas Primas. The Holy Father was responding to the fact that the world was becoming increasingly nationalistic and secular. Governments were claiming more and more allegiance from their citizens and attempting to replace God.

“While nations insult the beloved name of our Redeemer by suppressing all mention of it in their conferences and parliaments, we must all the more loudly proclaim his kingly dignity and power, all the more universally affirm his rights.” – Quas Primas, 25

Pope Pius XI, therefore, created this feast to help the faithful to remember that allegiance to Christ is above any allegiance to government of a nation.

“The faithful, moreover, by meditating upon these truths, will gain much strength and courage, enabling them to form their lives after the true Christian ideal. If to Christ our Lord is given all power in heaven and on earth; if all men, purchased by his precious blood, are by a new right subjected to his dominion; if this power embraces all men, it must be clear that not one of our faculties is exempt from his empire. He must reign in our minds, which should assent with perfect submission and firm belief to revealed truths and to the doctrines of Christ. He must reign in our wills, which should obey the laws and precepts of God. He must reign in our hearts, which should spurn natural desires and love God above all things, and cleave to him alone. He must reign in our bodies and in our members, which should serve as instruments for the interior sanctification of our souls, or to use the words of the Apostle Paul, as instruments of justice unto God.” – Quas Primas, 33

It is particularly important to recognize the words of the encyclical in today’s climate of government intrusion on the Church.

“When we pay honor to the princely dignity of Christ, men will doubtless be reminded that the Church, founded by Christ as a perfect society, has a natural and inalienable right to perfect freedom and immunity from the power of the state; and that in fulfilling the task committed to her by God of teaching, ruling, and guiding to eternal bliss those who belong to the kingdom of Christ, she cannot be subject to any external power.” – Quas Primas, 31

Christ the King, Your Kingdom come!

Amen.

    • Hi Lily, I just joined this site and the first comment that caught my attention was yours and that’s because I am also a breast cancer survivor. From 23 years ago and 13 years ago… I have no idea how old you are but I was 42 the first time and 52 the second time. My faith got me through these episodes, I don’t know how I could have survived through the trials without it. I swore after the first one (lumpectomy and radiation) that if it ever came back I would get a double mastectomy. It took three months to convince the doctors that I was serious (a letter finally did it) but I finally got it done and believe me I have no regrets. I have never felt so liberated. Of course reconstruction was an option but I have decided to go breastless, bra-less and be absolutely free. I just had my 65th birthday and I am celebrating life and being alive. BTW having the double mastectomy eliminated any further treatments as the cancer had not gone anywhere. Wow what a great feeling!

  8. I am praying a novina for my Grandaughter Allee, she is almost 18 years old. She is suffering with chronic, sever headaches caused by anxiety and depression. She is seeing Psycholists and counseling but needs more help.
    Medication is available, but not the right answer.
    Please pray for us.
