The Liturgical Year ends with the Feast of ‘Christ the King’. I have always been struck by the wisdom of this. If I had time I might delve into the history of how this came to be. The following reflection, which includes an article by our friend Diana Macalintal, is offered as a support to our celebration and living of this Feast. Hopefully, we will be up for the challenge it offers us.
Diana Macalintal, who with Nick Wagner co-facilitated our recent RCIA Workshop day was one of the keynote speakers at the Australian Pastoral Musicians Network Conference in Melbourne. In the following article Diana considers the nature and purpose of the Gathering Song at mass. Enjoy reading and reflecting on the liturgical wisdom and pastoral suggestions offered.
