Act of Spiritual Communion

As I cannot this day enjoy the happiness of assisting at the holy Mysteries, O my God! I transport myself in spirit at the foot of Thine altar; I unite with the Church, which by the hands of the priest, offers Thee Thine adorable Son in the Holy Sacrifice; I offer myself with Him, by Him, and in His Name. I adore, I praise, and thank Thee, imploring Thy mercy, invoking Thine assistance, and presenting Thee the homage I owe Thee as my Creator, the love due to Thee as my Savior.

Apply to my soul, I beseech Thee, O merciful Jesus, Thine infinite merits; apply them also to those for whom I particularly wish to pray. I desire to communicate spiritually, that Thy Blood may purify, Thy Flesh strengthen, and Thy Spirit sanctify me. May I never forget that Thou, my divine Redeemer, hast died for me; may I die to all that is not Thee, that hereafter I may live eternally with Thee. Amen.

Feast of Christ the King
Today – The Last Sunday of October

A Catechism on the Social Reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Father Hewko helps us understand the teaching of Holy Mother Church, as outlined through the writings of Father Denis Fahey’s: “The Kingship of Christ According to the Principals of Saint Thomas Aquinas.”


My Kingdom is not of this world. At this Pilate said to Him: So, then, You are a king? Jesus replied: You are right in saying I am a King. The reason I was born, the reason why I came into the world, is to testify to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice. – John 18:36-39

Our Lord Jesus Christ began his public life by announcing His Kingdom. Christ’s Kingdom is not a worldly kingdom; it is primarily spiritual. Its final realization consists in the union of all the blessed in the possession of the Holy Trinity in Heaven.

Entrance into this Kingdom comes through the acceptance of the Gospel message by faith and the receiving of Baptism. The name by which the Kingdom of God is most commonly called is the Catholic Church; it is at once Divine and human; on earth and in Heaven. Small as a mustard seed in its beginning, it was destined to become catholic; that is, to embrace all the earth or to be universal. This concept of the Catholic Church as the one universal Kingdom of God makes it evident that there can be only one true Church, just as there can be only one true Kingdom of God.

The Church is Jesus Christ, living on and acting in the world through His duly authorized ministers, until the end of time. He gave to His Church a form, an organization which would enable it to carry on His work upon earth – to teach, to rule, and administer to the souls of men. Membership in the Kingdom of God is the most precious thing that a person can possess. We must regard it as a pearl beyond price and gratefully sacrifice for this gift.

Jesus Christ is our King – all things have been created in Him, through Him, and for Him. As the Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, He is the perfect image of God. It is of faith that Jesus Christ, as Man, has the fullest spiritual power, leading to salvation by establishing the Church and Her Sacraments, and disposing of all graces in the supernatural order.

In virtue of the union of His human nature with the Divine, He possesses still greater power, which is the foundation of His Kingship. We, as individuals, must strive to be subject to Christ the King most perfectly, in mind, will and heart, because we were purchased at the price of His Own Most Precious Blood. Christ must be King of all hearts, all homes and all nations.

Truly, He must reign!

As established by Pope Pius XI in his encyclical, Quas Primas, the feast of Christ the King is celebrated on this last Sunday of October. In today’s feast we pray that Our Lord Jesus Christ may reign! both in our hearts and in society, thereby bestowing the peace that the world cannot give:

“The Catholic Church is the Kingdom of Christ on earth. She is destined to be spread among all men and all nations. Her Author and Founder, Jesus Christ, is King and Lord and King of Kings. It would be a grave error to say that Christ has no authority whatever in civil affairs.”

“The empire of our Redeemer embraces all men, including not only Catholic nations, not only baptized persons who, though of right belonging to the Church, have been led astray by error, or have been cut off from her by schism, but also all those who are outside the Christian faith; so that truly the whole of mankind is subject to the power of Jesus Christ. There is no difference in this matter between the individual and the family or the State; for all men, whether collectively or individually, are under the dominion of Christ.”

” […] We institute the Feast of the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ to be observed yearly throughout the whole world on the last Sunday of the month of October–the Sunday, that is, which immediately precedes the Feast of All Saints. We further ordain that the dedication of mankind to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which Our predecessor of saintly memory, Pope Pius X, commanded to be renewed yearly, be made annually on that day.” –  P.P Pius XI; Quas Primas, 1925


Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

On the feast of Christ the King, the faithful may gain a Plenary Indulgence by the public recitation of the Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Most Sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united to Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates ourselves today to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Many indeed have never known Thee; Many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful children, who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children, who have abandoned Thee; Grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.  Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound  from pole to pole with one cry; praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; To it be glory and honor forever. R. Amen.



He Must Reign, But They Have Uncrowned Him!
On this magnificent feast, we offer an extract from his book: “They Have Uncrowned Him” by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre; along with the consistent teaching on Christ’s Kingship from recent Popes.

The Apostolic Nuncio of Switzerland to Archbishop Lefebvre: “You understand, the social kingship of Our Lord – that is impossible now; perhaps in the distant future? Right now, this Reign is in individuals; we have to open ourselves up to the masses… It is very difficult now.”

The Archbishop: “You see – he no longer believes in it: It is an ‘impossible’ or a ‘very difficult’ dogma, which now would not be written anymore!’ And how many people think like this today! How many are incapable of understanding that the Redemption of Our Lord Jesus Christ must be brought about with the help of civil society; and that the State therefore must become, within the limits of the temporal order, the instrument of the application of the work of Redemption. They answer you: ‘Oh, those are two different things; you are mixing politics and religion!'”

Papal Teaching on Christ’s Kingship


“The Church without the State is a soul without a body. The State without the Church is a body without a soul.” – Pope Leo XIII, Libertas

That the State must be separated from the Church is a thesis absolutely false, a most pernicious error. Based, as it is, on the principle that the State must not recognize any religious cult, it is in the first place guilty of a great injustice to God. We owe Him not only a private cult, but a public and social worship to honor Him. Besides, this thesis is an obvious negation of the supernatural order. The civil power must not only place no obstacle in the way of this conquest, but must aid us in effecting it.” – Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer

“At the last judgment, Christ will accuse those who have expelled Him from public life and will have the most terrible vengeance from such an outrage.”– Pope Pius XI


He Must Reign!

In the present crisis which surrounds us, we suffer great casualties of war between the Social Kingship of Christ and the diabolical forces of Organized Naturalism. As Almighty God permits these forces to hold current sway on virtually every institution in society, we as faithful Catholics have a duty to stand up for the rights of Christ the King.

This call to arms to restore our Sovereign Lord to the Throne of His Social Kingship begins in our minds and hearts. In better understanding this duty to fight bravely and constantly; with an intellectual formation as soldiers of Christ, arming ourselves with the weapons of Christ; in the fortification of will and apostolic zeal to serve beneath the banner of His Sacred Heart.

“Catholic books are our weapons in times of war” – Saint Hugh of Lincoln

A life for Christ the King: Archbishop Lefebvre
By Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais

The Archbishop always linked the priesthood to the social reign of our Lord Jesus Christ: The one is the source of the other; the other spontaneously flows from the first. This essay was first published in the October 2011 issue of The Angelus magazine. Read the Online Version Here



They Have Uncrowned Him
By Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre

The Summa of Archbishop Lefebvre. Covers the origins of liberalism, the subversion of orthodoxy by Vatican II, the decline of the missionary spirit by dialogue, the bad fruits of post-Conciliar reforms, and his vision of restoration. Most importantly, His Grace explains how the revolutionaries in the Church managed to dethrone Christ the King, both ecclesiastically and temporally.


The Kingship of Christ and Organized Naturalism
By Father Denis Fahey, C.S.Sp

One of the most important books you could read!
Fr. Fahey masterfully details the contrast between the Church’s social teachings and organized naturalism, which is nothing more than Freemasonry and the work of other groups which are always striving to make what is now called Secular Humanism the dominant ideology ruling the world. They have succeeded to a large degree; but, by reading this book you will not only be better able to recognize their errors, you will be inspired to reverse the gains they have made and help advance the Social Reign of Christ the King!

Duties of the Catholic State
By Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani

Cardinal Ottaviani, in a 1953 lecture, explains why the Church teaches that the State has the duty of professing the Catholic religion and that rulers are to insure that the moral principles of the True Religion inspire the social activity and the laws of the State.

This is true Catholic doctrine trampled upon by the Vatican II document: Dignitatis Humanae.





The Solemnity of Christ the King
Last Sunday of October

Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice. – John 18

The Kingdom of Heaven—Holy Church—is seen bringing forth out of her treasure “things new and old.” Although she can never add new dogmas to the deposit of Faith entrusted to her, as the ages go by she is seen understanding more perfectly and explaining more fully those treasures in her keeping. She is a living body, not a statue, and she can develop, though she can never change her nature. Hence, guided by the Holy Spirit of him who has promised to be with her not merely for a few centuries but unto the end of the world, she defines or emphasizes certain points of doctrine as she sees fit, considering needs of the times. We have an example in the institution of the feast, of the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ by the Sovereign Pontiff, Pope Pius XI, in the jubilee year 1925, and explained to the faithful in the Encyclical Quas Primas.

Christians have ever hailed our divine Lord as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It was as a King that the representatives of the Eastern World came to adore him in the manger; it was as a King, albeit not knowing what he did, that the official representative of the Western world lifted him up upon the Cross. The patriarchs and prophets of the old dispensation foretold his royalty; he spoke constantly of his kingdom: when asked plainly whether he were in truth a king by the representative of Cæsar, he acknowledged that such indeed he was, though of a kingdom not of this world

“His Kingship is founded upon the ineffable hypostatic union. It is spiritual and concerned with spiritual things. It is opposed to none other than to that of Satan, and to the powers of darkness. Christ is King over angels and men; King over men’s hearts and wills; his Kingship demands of its subjects a spirit of detachment from riches and earthly things, and a spirit of gentleness. They must hunger and thirst after justice and, more than this, they must deny themselves and carry the cross.”

Yet though his is a spiritual kingdom, opposed to no just earthly polity, “it would be a grave error to say that Christ has no authority whatever in civil affairs, since by virtue of the absolute empire over all creatures committed to him by the Father, all things are in his power. All men, whether collectively or individually, are under the dominion of Christ. In him is the salvation of the individual, in him is the salvation of society.”

Today we sadly behold “a world undone,” largely paganized in principles and outlook and, in recent years, in one country even glorying in the name “pagan.” At the best, governments mostly ignore God; and at the worst, openly fight against him, as we of today are witnessing in the Old World and in the New. Even the statesmen’s well-meant efforts to find a remedy for present ills and, above all, to secure world peace, prove futile because whereas peace is from Christ, and possible only in the Kingdom of Christ, his name is never mentioned throughout their deliberations or their documents. Christ is kept out of the State schools and seats of higher education; and the rising generations seem to be taught anything and everything save to know, love, and serve him. Art and literature all too frequently reflect the same tendencies.

And since the spirit of evil reigns inevitably wherever the spirit of Christ has ceased to reign, in public and in private men are flouting the moral laws of God, and some of the worst abominations of ancient paganism are becoming matters of every-day life. Moreover, be it remembered, modern paganism is worse than that of the ancient world, in that the former knows what it does as the latter did not. There is now an intense, positive hatred of Jesus Christ in the militant atheist, which differs in kind from the attitude of the fiercest Roman or Eastern persecutor: “If I had not come and spoken to them … if I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin: but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.”

Ever as practical as she is supernatural, the Church is not content with merely deploring the evil, nor even with counteracting it by sound teaching. She would also make definite reparation to the divine majesty thus denied and defied; to him whose royalty is slighted and insulted. Something must be done by those who, in a measure, understand and love, in order to atone for those who do not. “To repair the crime,” says the great 20th century Thomist Fra. Réginald Garrigou-Lagrange in his study L’Amour de Dieu et de la Croix de Jesus, The Love of God and the Cross of Jesus, “of ‘lèse-divinité,’ which denies God’s rights over the human society whose author he is, we must exalt Jesus Christ as King over all individuals, families, and peoples. If his universal royalty be proclaimed and his reign in society recognized, one of the principal evils of the modern world—the secularizing of public and private life—will be attacked at its roots.” Hence we have the special exhortation of the Vicar of Christ, and the institution of the feast of this divine Kingship.

“To this end nothing would serve better than the institution of a special feast in honor of the Kingship of Christ. For people are instructed in the truths of faith, and brought to appreciate the inner joys of religion, far more effectually by the annual celebration of our sacred mysteries than by any pronouncement, however weighty, of the teaching of the Church. Such pronouncements usually reach only a few, and those the more learned among the faithful; feasts reach them all; the former speak but once, the latter speak every year—in fact for ever. The Church’s teaching affects the mind primarily; her feasts affect both mind and heart, and have a salutary effect upon the whole of man’s nature … We have commanded its observance on a Sunday, in order that not only the clergy may perform their duty by saying Mass and reciting the Office, but that the laity too, free from their daily tasks, may in a spirit of holy joy give ample testimony of their obedience and subjection to Christ … that they may so order their lives as to be worthy, faithful, and obedient subjects of the Diving King.”


Dignus est Agnus, qui occisus est, accipere virtutem, et divinatem, et sapientiam, et fortitudinem, et honorem. Ipsi gloria et imperium in sæcula sæculorum. The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power and divinity and wisdom and strength and honor; to Him be glory and empire for ever and ever.
Deus, judicium tuum Regi da: et justitiam tuam Filio Regis. Gloria Patri. Give to the King, O God, Thy justice, and to the King’s Son Thy judgment. Glory be to the Father, &c.


Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui in dilecto Filio tuo, universorum Rege, omnia instaurare voluisti: concede propitius; ut cunctiæ familiæ Gentium, peccati vulnere disgregatæ, ejus suavissimo subdantur imperio: Qui cum vivit et regnat. Almighty and everlasting God, Who in Thy beloved Son, the King of the whole world, hast willed to restore all things, mercifully grant that all the kindreds of the nations that are now divided by the wound of sin, may be brought under the sweet yoke of His rule: Who with Thee liveth and reigneth.

Lectio Epistolæ beati Pauli Apostoli ad Colossenses. Lesson of the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Colossians.
Cap. i. Ch. i.
Fratres: Gratias agentes Deo Patri, qui dignos nos fecit in partem sortis sanctorum in lumine: qui eripuit nos de potestate tenebrarum, et transtulit in regnum filii dilectionis suae, in quo habemus redemptionem per sanguinem ejus, remissionem peccatorum: qui est imago Dei invisibilis, primogenitus omnis creaturæ: quoniam in ipso condita sunt universa in cælis, et in terra, visibilia, et invisibilia, sive throni, sive dominationes, sive principatus, sive potestates: omnia per ipsum et in ipso creata sunt: et ipse est ante omnes, et omnia in ipso constant. Et ipse est caput corporis Ecclesiæ, qui est principium, primogenitus ex mortuis: ut sit in omnibus ipse primatum tenens: quia in ipso complacuit, omnem plenitudinem inhabitare: et per eum reconciliare omnia in ipsum, pacificans per sanguinem crucis ejus, sive quæ in terris, sive quæ in cælis sunt. Brethren: Giving thanks to God the Father, who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, In whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins; Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For in him were all things created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominations, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him and in him. And he is before all, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he may hold the primacy: Because in him, it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell; And through him to reconcile all things unto himself, making peace through the blood of his cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in heaven.
Dominabitur a mari usque ad mare, et a flumine usque ad terminos orbis terrarum. Et adorabunt eum omnes reges terræ: omnes Gentes servient ei. He shall rule from sea to sea, and from the river to the end of the earth. And all kings shall adore Him, all nations shall serve Him.
℣. Potestas ejus, potestas æterna, quæ non auferetur: et regnum ejus, quod non corrumpetur. ℣. His power shall be an everlasting power, which shall not be taken away; and His kingdom a kingdom that shall not decay.


In votive Masses after Septuagesima, instead of the Alleluia and its ℣., there is said:

Ipse invocabit me, Pater meus es tu: Deus meus, et susceptor salutis meæ. He shall cry out to me: Thou art my Father, my God, and the support of my salvation.
℣. Et ego primogenitum ponam illum: excelsum præ regibus terræ. ℣. And I will make him my firstborn, high above the kings of the earth.
℣. Et ponam in sæculum sæculi semen ejus: et thronum ejus sicut dies cœli. ℣. And I will make his seed to endure for evermore, and his throne as the days of heaven.

In Paschal time, omitting the Gradual, there is said: Alleluia, alleluia. ℣. Potestas ejus, etc., as above; then:

Alleluia. ℣. Habet in vestimento et in femore suo scriptum: Rex regum, et Dominus dominantium. Alleluia. Alleluia. ℣. He hath on his garment and on his thigh written: King of kings and Lord of lords. Alleluia.
Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Joannem. Sequel of the holy Gospel according to John.
In illo tempore: Dixit Pilatus ad Jesum: Tu es rex Judæorum? Respondit Jesus: A temetipso hoc dicis, an alii dixerunt tibi de me? Respondit Pilatus: Numquid ego Judæus sum? gens tua et pontifices tradiderunt te mihi: quid fecisti? Respondit Jesus: Regnum meum non est de hoc mundo. Si ex hoc mundo esset regnum meum, ministri mei utique decertarent ut non traderer Judaeis: nunc autem regnum meum non est hinc. Dixit itaque ei Pilatus: Ergo rex es tu? Respondit Jesus: Tu dicis quia rex sum ego. Ego in hoc natus sum, et ad hoc veni in mundum, ut testimonium perhibeam veritati: omnis qui est ex veritate, audit vocem meam. At that time: Pilate said to Jesus: Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee of me? Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done? Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.
Postula a me, et dabo tibi Gentes hereditatem tuam, et possessionem tuam terminos terræ. Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Hostiam tibi, Domine, humanæ reconciliationis offerius: præsta quæsumus; ut quem sacrificiis præsentibus immolamus, ipse cunctis gentibus unitatis et pacis dona concedat, Jesus Christus, Filius tuus, Dominus noster: Qui tecum. We offer thee, O Lord, the victim of man’s reconciliations; grant, we beseech thee, that he whom we immolate in these present sacrifices may himself bestow on all nations the gifts of unity and peace, Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord: Who liveth.

Commemoration is made of the occurring Sunday.

Vere dignum et justum est, æquum et salutare, nos tibi semper et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, æterne Deus: Qui unigenitum Filium tuum, Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum, Sacerdotem æternum et universorum Regem, oleo exsultatipnis unxisti: ut, seipsum in ara crucis hostiam immaculatam et pacificam offerens, redemptionis humanæ sacramenta perageret: et suo subjectis imperio omnibus creaturis, æternum et universale regnum, immensæ tuæ traderet Majestati. Regnum veritatis et vitæ: regnum sanctitatis et gratiæ: regnum justitiæ, amoris et pacis. Et ideo … It is meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God: Who didst anoint, with the oil of gladness, Thine only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to be the eternal Priest and King of the universe; that by offering Himself a spotless Victim and peace-offering on the altar of the Cross, He might accomplish the mysteries of man’s redemption, and that having subjected all creatures to His dominion, He might present to Thine infinite Majesty an everlasting and universal Kingdom; a kingdom of truth and life; and kingdom of holiness and grace; a kingdom of justice, love, and peace. And therefore …
Sedebit Dominus Rex in æternum: Dominus benedicet populo suo in pace. The Lord shall sit as King for ever: the Lord shall bless His people in peace.
Immortalitatis alimoniam consecuti, quæsumus, Domine: ut, qui sub Christi Regis vexillis militare gloriamur, cum ipso, in cœlesti sede, jugiter regnare possimus: Qui tecum vivit et regnat. We who have received the food of immortality, beseech Thee, O Lord: that we who glory in our warfare under the banners of Christ our King, may reign with Him for ever in His heavenly swelling place: Who liveth and reigneth, etc.

Commemoration of the XXI Sunday After Pentecost, the Gospel of which is read at the end of Mass.
