About Christ the King Day
Pope Pius XI instituted the Christ the King feast in 1925 as a way of acknowledging Jesus’ authority and power. The town of Guanajuato in central Mexico had a monument of Jesus known as Christ the King (Cristo Rey). This monument – except for the head and heart – was destroyed in an air raid in 1927. Afterward, a new statue was built to honor “Christ the King”.
