John Lilburne's journal about the Feast of Christ the King, leaders and errors.
1754 L Sun 25 Nov 2001
The feast of Christ the King was celebrated today. The first reading is from 2 Samuel 5:1-3
David is the Lord's anointed. But the Bible does not depict him as free from error or sin, such as with Bathsheba. Nevertheless he is the king. The kings of the line of David are exulted in the psalms, such as Psalm 121 used today "There were set the thrones of judgment of the house of David." (Grail translation).
The Catechism presents a similar situation about the ordained ministry:
It also draws attention in CCC 907 to what one of the Vatican II documents said
We were all standing for the Gloria again today, which was good. However the Communion Song started later than yesterday and there was a "thurible procession" at the beginning and end of the Eucharistic Prayer.
Yesterday I bought a book by Malcolm Gladwell called The Tipping Point. I am about half way through it. The ideas about how changes come about in societies are providing lots of food for thought.
