Time to feast!

The feast of Christ the King is on Sunday and I just wanted to remind you that this is a wonderful time to celebrate in some way before the more penitential season of Advent begins next weekend.  If you’d like a few suggestions, maybe you’ll find a spark of inspiration here:

  • Invite someone over for Sunday brunch.
  • Dress up your table a bit.  Even if you’re just serving take-out pizza for lunch, a tablecloth and candles have a way of getting everyone’s attention.
  • Redecorate your prayer table with a white cloth and whatever gold (brass) decorations you have.  If you have access to a color printer, this would be a nice piece to display.
  • Make dessert.  Or buy dessert and make it a little fancier  for the occasion.
  • Be sure to go over the Sunday readings one more time.  In particular, you may want to talk about the contrast between the first reading and the Gospel.
  • Ask your kids what it means to make Jesus king of their lives.
  • And be sure to thank Him for His loving care for each of us!
