Today marks the Feast of Christ the King, a feast day established by Pope Pius XI in the 1920’s as antidote to secularism.
Almost 100 years later, we still need this reminder of Christ’s sovereignty for us – as individuals, families, a society and as a nation.
It’s so appropriate, as we head into the season of Advent and preparing for the birth of Our Lord, that we’re reminded of both His humility as well as His royalty.
Before we break out the Advent wreath (there’s the reminder!), you and your family can celebrate Jesus as King with this crown craft from Catholic Icing.

I have always liked the line from the song “Let all mortal flesh keep silence” that says, “King of Kings yet born of Mary…”. Christ is truly King!
