Nine Days to Christ the King: A Meditation Novena
The Solemnity of Christ the King offers us the opportunity to reflect on the Kingdom that Christ came to establish. He himself made clear while on earth that his Kingdom is not of this world (Jn 18:36). The nature of Christ’s kingship is unlike that of any earthly power. His criteria challenge our own and invite us to see our lives anew in the light of his and to allow them to be transformed by his love.
Join us for a Meditation Novena of reflections written by Teresa Williams, CRC. A sign up will be available here as we approach the Feast of Christ the King 2021. Check back in the Fall.
As we journey through this novena, we will reflect on various facets of Christ’s kingdom. We will see him choose the way of humility and service over that of power and dominion. We will contemplate a king who empties himself completely in order to give life to his people. We will consider the thrones he has chosen to occupy: from the manger, to the mountain, to the cross. We will ask him to teach us to embrace his criteria so that we, too, might reign with him.
The reflections offered in this meditation novena are made up of three parts. The first consists of a passage, usually from the Gospel, and a reflection for our meditation. The second offers several questions that can help us to delve deeper and apply these reflections to our lives. The third is a short prayer to sum up the day’s meditation.
