Today’s Video: Enthronement of Our Lord Christ the King
The Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, on November 24, 2019, was like no other. The Most Rev. Archbishop Dennis Schnurr offered Mass to solemnly enthrone Our Lord Jesus on the altar and proclaim Him King of the Universe and King of America. All were invited to come and pray the “Prayer of Enthronement of the Heart” at the Our Lady of Holy Spirit Center.
The ceremony is based on one originally done in Poland in 2016. In Poland, on one day, all the Bishops and the President of Poland gathered in one huge ceremony to solemnly proclaim Jesus as King of their country. In America, we believe the best approach is to begin by encouraging individuals to enthrone Him in their hearts, then each diocese, until finally He will have been enthroned as King throughout the nation.
The desire for God is written in the human heart. Neglect or denial of our religious dimension creates an imbalance in conflicts in all levels of our lives. The founding fathers of our nation recognized this religious dimension of our lives. Freedom of religion and respect for the rights of conscience are framed in the bill of rights and the first amendment. – Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr November 24, 2019.
