as food for everlasting life.
Help us to live by his Gospel
and bring us to the joy of his kingdom,
where he lives and reigns for ever and ever."
(Prayer after Communion from today's Mass)
"Jesus of Nazareth...is so intrinsically king that the title 'King' has actually become his name. By calling ourselves Christians, we label ourselves as followers of the king...The feast of Christ the King is therefore not a feast of those subjugated, but a feast of those who know that they are in the hands of the one who writes straight on crooked lines."--Pope Benedict XVI
