Update from Fr Bill



This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. As we proclaim our faith in the words of Creed, we acclaim Jesus ‘consubstantial with the Father.’ These words come from the Council of Nicaea which took place in the year 325 - the Council that gave its name to the text of the Creed that we customarily use at Mass on Sundays - the Nicene Creed. It was in 1925 that Pope Pius XI instituted this to mark the 1600th Anniversary of the Council of Nicaea.  

We place our whole lives before the person of Jesus Christ our King, and it is this relationship that we celebrate on this feast. It is this relationship that is a prerequisite for our service of the Gospel. It is this relationship, and this service that lead us to His Kingdom.  
The Opening Prayer of Mass on this feast expresses this for us: “Grant, we pray, that the whole creation, set free from slavery, may render your majesty service and ceaselessly proclaim your praise.” Praise and service. These are the marks of the Kingdom of Christ.  
The readings at Mass are all about judgement and the last times. St Paul, writing to the Corinthians, speaks of the way in which Christ our King will hand everything to our Heavenly Father. The Prophet Ezekiel speaks about judgement, and Jesus Himself places before us the grounds on which we shall be judged. Service of Him in all around us – this must be our way.  

The feast of Christ the King is also Youth Sunday. To all those in our schools, colleges, and universities - and to all who are searching for your way in life - I say this:be open to the call that Jesus, our King, will most certainly give to you. Place your lives before Him. May your relationship with Him be the foundation for your service of others. Build His Kingdom.  

With every blessing,
Bishop Richard
