Pope Pius XI established the last Sunday of October as the Feast of Christ the King in 1925. The importance of this date is that the last Sunday in October also happens to be the last Sunday before All Saints Day.
Pius XI established the Feast of Christ the King in an attempt to combat the growing tide of secular nationalism in the industrialized post-Christian world, to remind Christians of the dangers of governments that engage in a campaign to eradicate God from public life.
The events that have taken place around the world in the eight decades since Pius XI issued his encyclical Quas Primas only serve to reinforce this warning. We would do well to heed it.
