Feast of Christ the King
I hope you all had a blessed feast day. The preface from today says it all very well:
IT IS truly meet and just, right and profitable, for us, all times, and in all places, to give thanks to Thee, O Lord, the holy One, the Father almighty, the everlasting God: Who didst anoint with the oil of gladness Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, eternal Priest and King of the universe: that, offering Himself as a stainless peace-offering on the altar of the Cross, He might fulfill the pledges of man's redemption; and, having all creatures subject to His power, might deliver to Thy sublime majesty an eternal and universal kingdom, a kingdom of truth and life; a kingdom of holiness and grace, a kingdom of justice, love and peace. And therefore with the Angels and Archangels, with the Thrones and Dominations, and with all the array of the heavenly host, we sing a hymn to Thy glory, and unceasingly repeat:
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He Who cometh in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
