The future, reclaimed

YoofSt Jude is upon us, All Saints and All Souls follow closely. Before we know it, the liturgical year will be over. We’ll shed the green of Ordinary Time (love the term Ordinary Time, it’s so weird) and don the purple of Advent (or rather our priests will).

But there is one last momentuous event to look forward to: Christ the King (instigated by Pope Pius XI to fight secularism).The celebration is better known in these climes as National Youth Sunday (brought in to make young people feel at home in the Church).
