GOSPEL COMMUNION: Christ the King

November 24, 2019: Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

The key to this solemnity’s antiphon and verses lies in the 2nd Reading, Colossians 1:12-20, that great hymn of praise to the Beloved Son in whom all things hold together. The Collegeville Composers Group had already set this canticle (in fact Colossians 1:11-20) as the verses for the Song for the Table for the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God on January 1, with the antiphon above, all of which seemed to fit in well with the concept of the King of the Universe.

If only our faith in Jesus could be the same yesterday, today and for ever!
