Today is the last Sunday of the liturgical year before Advent. We take this Sunday to reflect on Christ’s kingship over our lives and the entire universe. Its place at the end of the liturgical year also reminds us of His Second Coming at the end times.

Prayer of the Day
O God of power and might, your Son shows us the way of service, and in Him we inherit the riches of your grace. Give us the wisdom to know what is right and the strength to serve the world you have made, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
