Christ the King Mass and Eucharistic Procession at Mater Dei in Dallas
Mater Dei parish, our apostolate in Dallas, honored the Feast of Christ the King with a solemn Eucharistic Procession following Mass. The kingship of Our Lord has always been acknowledged and identified throughout the history of the Church, but Pope Pius XI acceded to the desires of a large number of cardinals, bishops and laity in extending to the entire Church a special feast in honor of Christ the King. This feast was established with the promulgation of the encyclical Quas Primas, On the Feast of Christ the King, in 1925.
A Prayer to Christ the King
O Christ Jesus, I acknowledge Thee to be the King of the universe; all that hath been made is created for Thee. Exercise over me all Thy sovereign rights. I hereby renew the promises of my Baptism, renouncing Satan and all his works and pomps, and I engage myself to lead henceforth a truly Christian life. And in an especial manner do I undertake to bring about the triumph of the rights of God and Thy Church, so far as in me lies. Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer Thee my poor actions to obtain the acknowledgment by every heart of Thy sacred kingly power. In such wise may the kingdom of Thy peace be firmly established throughout all the earth. Amen.
