Christ The King Sunday—Year C (November 20, 2016)

A.     Introduction

a)      To the Holy Mass

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Good morning!
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration.
This Sunday, we solemnly celebrate Christ The King Sunday, honoring the kingship of Christ.  Unlike kings in the history of humanity who build their kingdom with much blood of victims killed in power disputes, Christ our Lord established His Kingdom by shedding His own blood as a sin offering to free humankind from death.  Unlike kingdoms on earth which force people to serve those on top, Christ’s Kingdom urges those on top power to serve the people after the example of Christ the King Who came not to be served but to serve and lay down His life for the salvation of the people.
Let us pray hard in this Holy Mass for the coming of the Kingdom of Christ, Who is the will take us into His Reign of love, peace and everlasting happiness.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.   

b)     To the Readings

-          First Reading: 2 Sm 5:1-3

King David was anointed as the leader of Israel after the model of the Lord God Who leads His people the way a shepherd tending His sheep.

-          Second Reading: Col 1:12-20

It is Christ Who by His blood and cross obtained for us God’s merciful love and forgiveness.  It is Christ Who brings us into the Kingdom of love and peace.
