So That God May Be All in All
When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who puts all things under him, that God may be everything to everyone. (1 Corinthians 15:28)
These words of Scripture describe the graces experienced on Christ the King weekend in the Diocese of Victoria.
Things got off to a harmonious start on Friday, November 21, 2014, with an evening at St. Andrew’s Cathedral at which nearly 300 people gathered for prayer in the style of Taizé to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Decree on Ecumenism of the Second Vatican Council. On Saturday evening (November 22) the offering continued with Taizé prayer and song echoing throughout Christ the King parish in the Comox valley. Again, more than 300 people gathered to sing and pray for Christians suffering persecution around the world.
The Feast of Christ the King at the parish of the same name in Courtenay-Comox was a joyful reminder that Jesus is the Good Shepherd, and each of us is invited to bring the shepherding mercy of Jesus to all we meet and know.
