Shownotes

On this episode, Chris is joined by past guest Dr. Aaron Weldon, program director for the USCCB Committee on Religious Liberty. Aaron explains why this great feast is linked to our religious freedoms. Instituted in 1925, the 16th centenary of the Council of Nicea, by Pope Piux XI, the feast of Christ the King is a spiritual response to an atheistic totalitarianism that ignored the transcendent, eternal nature of men and women. The USCCB has asked us to give renewed focus to this great solemnity in light of threats to religion in our own day.
