Christ the King

The end of the liturgical year marks the time when the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of Christ the King. All Christians profess their belief that Christ is the king of the universe, the king of heaven and earth. 

And so with this year's culminating activity, SLRP celebrated the feast with a parish-wide procession where the Blessed Sacrament was processed throughout all the areas of the parish - Cruz Compound / Saplan, Dona Faustina Village 1, St. Dominic 4, UP Professors Subdivision and Tierra Verde 1 & 2. Also included in the procession were those along Tandang Sora Ave between Glenn and Armstrong Streets of Dona Faustina Village 1. This marks the parish under the kingship of Christ.

While we profess Christ's kingship over all things in heaven and on earth, over all our lives, over all our minds and our hearts, He reigns over all those poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, the hungry and thirsty (for righteousness), the merciful, the pure of heart, the peacemakers and the persecuted. As we kneel and worship him as our king, His message of humility, charity, and brotherly love should reign in our hearts. For he came not for the rich but for the poor, the lowly and the lost sheep.
