Christ the King Day

Today Roman Catholics celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. All Christians should take special note- it is Christ the King not "Christ the President" and it is the Kingdom of Heaven and not the "Republic of Heaven". If to be 'Christian' is to be 'Christ-like' surely we could not do better than organizing our own societies in the same style as the Almighty does. Anyway, an important day, one of the most important in my own view. It was instituted by His Holiness Pope Pius XI in 1925 in the encyclical Quas Primas. I would encourage everyone interested to look into it and, even if you are not, you might be glad you did anyway. A happy Christ the King day to everyone and I would hope that regardless of background one and all could join in a salute to at least one king who can never be overthrown.
