    November 14, 2010 Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Christ the King Next Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. It is the last Sunday of Ordinary Time, and the last Sunday of the

    2010 Liturgical Year.

    Pope Pius XI universally instituted The Feast of Christ the King in 1925 in his encyclical Quas Primas. Pope Pius connected the denial of Christ as king to the rise of secularism. At that time secularism was

    on the rise, and many Christians, even Catholics, were doubting Christ's authority, as well as the Church's, and even doubting Christ's existence. Pius XI, and the rest of the Christian world, witnessed the rise of dictatorships in Europe, and saw Catholics

    being taken in by these earthly leaders. Just as the Feast of Corpus Christi was instituted when devotion to the Eucharist was at a low point, the Feast of Christ the King was instituted during a time when respect for Christ and the Church was waning, when the

    feast was most needed. In fact, it is still needed today, as these problems have not vanished, but instead have worsened.

    Individualism has been embraced to such an extreme, that for many, the only authority

    is the individual self. The idea of Christ as ruler is rejected in such a strongly individualistic system. Also, many balk at the idea of kings and queens, believing them to be oppressive. Some even reject the titles of "lord" and "king" for Christ because they

    believe that such titles are borrowed from oppressive systems of government. What would they suggest in place of Christ the .LQJ &KULVW RXU 'HPRFUDWLFDOO\ (OHFWHG


    democracy and neither is the Church.

    $OWKRXJK WKH LPDJHRI .LQJPD\KDYHGUDZEDFNVZHmust be careful not to minimize the vast difference between the human and divine. Christ the anointed one is more than

    king, He is more than supreme ruler, He is the Son of God. And on the last Sunday of the Church Liturgical Year we acknowledge that Christ is above all. The very next Sunday, November 28, we begin the new Liturgical Year of 2011 with Advent, longing for the coming of the Messiah, Christ our Lord and King.

    New Missal The Vatican has issued the final text of the Roman Missal, Third Edition, the ritual text containing prayers and instructions for the celebration of the Mass, for the Dioceses of the United States of America. First use of the new text of the new Roman

    Missal will be on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011. Over the course of the next year you will be hearing more and more about this change.

    New Words: A Deeper Meaning, but the Same Mass Pope John Paul II promulgated the third edition of the Roman Missal during the Jubilee Year in 2000. Among other things, the third edition contains prayers for the celebration of recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic Prayers, additional Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Intentions, and some

    updated and revised rubrics (instructions) for the celebration of the Mass. In 2007, the Congregation for Divine Worship issued the Ratio Translationis for the English Language, which outlined the specific rules for translation in English.

    7KHXQLTXHVW\OHRIWKH5RPDQ5LWHLVWREHPDLQWDLQHGLQWUDQVODWLRQ%\VW\OHLVmeant here the distinctive way in which the prayers of the Roman Rite are

    expressed. The texts of the revised translation of the Roman Missal are marked by a heightened style of English speech and a grammatical structure that closely follows WKH/DWLQWH[W,QDGGLWLRQPDQ\ELEOLFDODQGSRHWLFLPDJHVVXFKDV/RUG,DPQRW



    The Mass will not change. The new translation will bring a deeper meaning. We

    have a year to prepare for the change.

    Rosie, Carlito & Kodiak Kodiak turned 8 months on November 8 and he weighed in at about 115 pounds. On Friday a week ago, I gave him a bath at the local dog scrubber place. I am so relieved

    that no one was there to take pictures or make a video. I think there was more dog shampoo on me than on him. We got through it and had a lot of fun doing it. Rosie goes to a groomer, but that is because she is a girl. Girls go

    to beauty shops, boys just take a bath.
