Christ the King Sunday is the turning point from ordinary time to a series of liturgical seasons that change every fours weeks or so giving way to the dramatic storytelling of Christ’s birth, life, death and resurrection in this world. Christ the King Sunday is the Sunday before Advent 1. Advent is the season in which we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus as a helpless baby and not just run around crazy getting ready for Christmas. The colors on the altar will change from green to purple indicating a season of sorrow, repentance, and turning away from that which draws us away from God. The proclamation we are to make today in preparation for the beginning of Advent is that Jesus is King and Lord of all.
