Mass: Christ the King

It's the end of the Church's year, and we celebrated Christ as King 👑 of the Universe. I also got a new webcam (Mevo Start) that allows us to do more and get higher quality pictures. John and George played Mozart's Coronation Mass to give our music a royal theme. The readings are about Jesus the good shepherd, so not the normal picture of a king. The picture of the good shepherd shows us how our leaders should behave. The good shepherd is a challenge to the popularist leaders and dictators that lead many nations today. They have their day, but in the end they face the judgement of Christ.
