Our Morning Offering – 30 October – Christ the King

Jesus is Our King
By Estelle White (1925-2011)
Convert, Musician, Hymnist.

Crown Him, the Virgin’s Son,
The God Incarnate born,
Whose arm those crimson trophies won
Which now His brow adorn.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him Who died for thee;
And hail Him as thy glorious King
Through all Eternity.

Crown Him, the Lord of Love;
Behold His bands and side,–
Rich wounds, still visible above
In beauty glorified:
No Angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends His burning eye
At mysteries so bright.

Crown Him, the Lord of Peace,
Whose power a sceptre sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
Absorbed in prayer aud praise:
His reign shall know no end,
And round His pierced feet
Fair flowers of Paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
