The last Sunday After Pentecost, which is also the last Sunday of the Christian year, is a celebration of the coming reign of Jesus Christ and the completion of creation. This is why we celebrate this particular Sunday as Christ the King Sunday.           Next Sunday, December 3, begins the new Christian Year with the first of four Sundays of Advent followed by Christmas.
