34th Sunday of Ordinary Time 2017 Christ the King – Solemnity

34th Sunday of Ordinary Time 2017
Christ the King – Solemnity


The time between. That is what this week feels like for me. Today and this week at daily masses the white vestments will be used. But next Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent, and the move to Purple vestments. I often this of this as waiting for New Year’s. It is the new church year. As someone who spent over 20 years in university I have three New Year’s each year. There is the new school year and as such September feels like a beginning to a year (even though I have not taken courses for seven years now.) The second New Year’s is the traditional calendar new year of January 1st. Though to be honest this one has the least meaning or impact on me. And the third is the movable First Sunday of Advent, also known as Advent Sunday.  But it is a week of waiting a week of preparing. A week of anticipation.  The new year is just around the corner. How are you preparing?



Note: The above image is from my children's school board. We are moving from the year of Hope to the year of Faith. My prayer for you my readers is that you will be blessed and challenged this year.
