Why is the Altar Frontal White this Sunday?
The church sets aside certain colors to use for special Feast Days throughout the year. Sunday, November 20 is the Feast of Christ the King, or Christ the King Sunday. This is the final Sunday of the Liturgical year. Next Sunday Advent will begin and with it the start of a new church year. Christ the King Sunday celebrates the authority of Christ above that of all nations and rulers of the world. We know that ultimately the Revelation of John is and will be complete.
“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ,and he will reign forever and ever.” Revelation 11:15b
