On Sunday , November 22nd at 12.30 h. there will be celebrated The Feast of Christ the King (in the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, properly the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe). This Feast was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man's thinking and living and organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ's royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations. This Feast is celebrated on the final Sunday of the liturgical year, which is the last Sunday before Advent starts.
