Project BLACK MAMBA: Christ the King

'Tis the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe: King-link & Wikipedia-link.

Commentary: Wayback Machine. This is the last Sunday of the liturgical year.

Quoth the Holy Redeemer bulletin:
The Feast of Christ the King was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man's thinking & living & organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking & effective manner Christ's royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, & nations.
Otherwise, 20 November would be the feast of Saints Edmund the Martyr & Humbert of Elmham, Bishop, Martyrs (died 869, A.K.A. King Edmund of East Anglia), martyred by the Great Heathen Army: Martyr-link Echo & Wikipedia-link Echo; Martyr-link Hotel & Wikipedia-link Hotel.
