25 November 2018 – Last Sunday in Ordinary Time

Christ the King will restore all creation and restore his kingdom to the Father.  The risen people of God will rejoice in a new heaven and a new earth.  “There, with the whole of creation, freed from the corruption of sin and death, may we glorify you through Christ our Lord.” (EP IV) Ordo 2018
