Feast of Christ the King
Most high God, majestic and mighty,
our beginning and our end:
rule in our hearts and guide us to be faithful,
worshipping the One
who comes as Saviour and Sovereign;
and who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
1st Reading: Ephesians 1:15-23
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO Matthew 25: 31-46
Commission & Benediction
Go now, and embrace the hope to which God has called us.
Recognise Christ in friend and stranger,
and as Christ has been gracious to you,
so be gracious to those in need.
And may God give you a place of rest on rich pasture;
May Christ Jesus be the shepherd king who binds your wounds;
And may the Holy Spirit give you wisdom
and reveal to you the fullness of the one who fills all in all.
Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
