"The Lord Our Righteousness" and other holy mysteries

Today is a special Sunday because it is Christ the King Sunday, the last Sunday in the Church year. Next Sunday begins Advent Season where we will not only look forward to the coming of Christ but also to his coming again. The first Advent prepares us for the second Advent. To look forward to the coming of Jesus is to look forward to the promises of Jesus. The Old Testament lesson for today teaches us that Jesus came in his Advent to communicate His righteousness to us.
