Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 24, 2024

Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Activity of the Week

Solemnity of Christ the King

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Today’s Feast of Christ the King reminds us that Jesus identifies with those who are powerless, poor, and in need. Our participation in the life of Jesus demands that we serve those who are poor and in need. With this in mind, brainstorm with family members what Jesus will look for when he comes to judge us. Write down the responses on a sheet of paper. Display the paper on your refrigerator as a family reminder.
  • Jesus calls us to be shepherds for others. Who are the weak in the community? Do you know anyone who is struggling to belong in your community? Do they need friendship, support, food, tutoring? What can you do as a family?
  • Since Christ the King Sunday falls near Thanksgiving, invite a family who is in need to share Thanksgiving dinner with your family.
  • Pray for people around the world who are lost, frightened and in need of the Shepherd’s care.
