Holy Mass on the Feast of the Epiphany Sunday 7th January

A very happy New Year to all of our followers and we hope you have had a peaceful and blessed Christmas time.

Holy Mass for the Feast of the Epiphany will take place on Sunday 7th January at 3pm at Sacred Heart Morriston, Swansea

All are welcome and tea and coffee will be available after the Mass,

"From this day of thy Manifestation, O divine King! begins thy separation from the Synagogue, which refuses thy love; and on this same Day, thou takest, in the person of the Magi, the Gentiles as thy Spouse. Thy union with her will soon be proclaimed from the Cross, when, turning thy face from the ungrateful Jerusalem, thou wilt stretch forth thy hands towards the nations of the Gentiles. O ineffable joy of thy Birth! but O still better joy of thine Epiphany, wherein we, the once disinherited, are permitted to approach to thee, offer thee our gifts, and see thee graciously accept them, O merciful Emmanuel!"

Excerpted from The Liturgical Year by Abbot Gueranger O.S.B.

The Feast of Christ the King (in the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, properly the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe) is a relatively recent addition to the western liturgical calendar, having been instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI Roman Catholics adhering to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (as permitted under the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum) use the General Roman Calendar of 1960, and as such continue to observe the feast on its original date of the last Sunday of October.

Pope Pius XI instituted the Feast of Christ the King in his 1925 encyclical letter Quas primas, in response to growing nationalism and secularism[2] and in the context of the unresolved Roman Question. The title of the feast was "D. N. Jesu Christi Regis" (Our Lord Jesus Christ the King), and the date was "the last Sunday of the month of October - the Sunday, that is, which immediately precedes the Feast of All Saints".[3] In Pope John XXIII's 1960 revision of the Calendar, the date and title remained the same and, in the new simpler ranking of feasts, it was classified as a feast of the first class.
