Photos: Filipinos observe ‘Solemnity of Christ the King’ during pandemic

Filipino Catholics mark "Christ the King" Sunday with simple processions in communities due to restrictions brought by the coronavirus pandemic

Filipino Catholics marked the “Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe,” on Nov. 22 with simple religious processions in communities due to restrictions brought by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, commonly referred to as the Feast of Christ the King or Christ the King Sunday, is a relatively recent addition to the Western liturgical calendar, having been instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI for the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.
