The following was written by Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy:
ACTS 17: 6-8
They dragged Jason and some [Christian] brethren before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have upset the world have come here also; and Jason has welcomed them, and they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.”
Pledge of Allegiance to Christ the King
(To be used on the Feast of Christ the King, after the homily.)
I pledge allegiance to Christ the King.
I embrace his eternal and universal kingdom.
I acknowledge his kingdom to be one of truth and life,
of holiness and grace.
I wish to do what I can through prayer and action
to bring to our world his kingdom
of righteousness, love and peace.
If this Pledge of Allegiance to Christ the King can be said at Mass on Sunday why is it not said every day in Christian schools?
