Christ the King novena. Oct. 19-27

Start novena Oct.19 ending Oct.27, vigil of the Feast of Christ the King.


Novena to Christ the King

Oh JESUS, Thou didst declare that Thy Kingdom is upon the earth, but not of the earth; it is a spiritual, supernatural Kingdom, the Kingdom of truth.

It fights with the power of conviction, and conquers by this means the hearts that by right belong to it.

Thou Thyself art witness to this truth, and Thou Thyself art the Truth.
Oh Jesus, I believe that Thou art truly a King because Thou hast come into the world to institute among people the rule of God; every person who is of the truth, who believes in God and recognizes His authority in human affairs, owes Thee a loyal and undivided allegiance and “hears Thy voice.”

As a Catholic I am a member of Thy Kingdom, and Thou art my King.

To Thee I owe loyalty, obedience, and love. Help me to carry out these most sacred duties toward Thee.

I wish to be “of the truth ” that is “a child of God” and gladly to hear Thy voice and follow Thee in all things. I accept Thee as my King and submit to Thy authority.
Reign supremely in my heart and in my life. Thy reign is heavenly peace; Thy law is love.

Help me to pray and work that Thy Kingdom may come into every soul, every family, every nation.
Oh Jesus, since I honor Thee as my King, I come to Thee with great confidence, asking Thee to grant this special favor, if it be Thy holy Will:

(Mention your request).

Lord Jesus Christ, my King, I adore Thee as the Son of God, and through the prayers of Thy most loving Mother I beg of Thee, send me from out of the abundance of Thy loving Heart the grace of the Holy Spirit in order that He may enlighten my ignorance, purify and sanctify my sinful heart, and confirm me in Thy holy love.

This I request through the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit, through Thine infinite mercy, and through the merits of all Thy Saints. Amen.


CHRIST, Jesus, I acknowledge Thee as King of the universe. All that has been made has been created for Thee. Make full use of Thy rights over me.
I renew the promises I made in Baptism when I renounced Satan and all his pomps and works.

I promise to live a good Christian life.
Especially, I undertake to help, to the extent of my means, to secure the triumph of the rights of God and of Thy Church. Divine Heart of Jesus, I offer Thee my poor efforts so that all hearts may acknowledge Thy sacred Royalty and the Kingdom of Thy peace may be established throughout the entire universe. Amen.

  1. Bless your heart, zuzu.
    I didn’t think anyone was praying this novena here, so I didn’t bump it.
    Thank you!
    Day 3

  2. Well, I’m praying it. I love the feast of Christ the KIng on the last Sunday in October, as it should be. My chapel always holds a solemn procession outdoors for it and it’s really my favorite procession of the year. It’s the only one that’s held in silence except for the tolling of the bells. There is just something about Our Lord being conducted through the crunchy fallen maple leaves of a brilliant New England autumn morning, the Children of Mary kissing rose petals and dropping them before His passage, the altar boys stopping every few steps to kneel before the monstrance. I do so love how Our Lord accomodates Himself to our desires and lets Himself be locked up or led out or communicated, a true Prisoner of Love. What a blessed country this could be if only more people prayed this novena and acknowledged our True Sovereign.

    Day 4, by the way.:)

    • zuzu, how lovely your words and thoughts are!
      They made me visualize and long to be at Our King’s upcoming procession.
      A true Prisoner of Love indeed.
      God Willing, maybe I will be able to attend.
      How I would love to witness what you describe above….sigh.

  3. For everyone’s petitions, intentions, and needs.
    Special intention.
    For someone who is sick.

  4. Howl, you’re back!
    Woo Hoo!
    We have missed you.
    God bless you, dear friend.

    Day 5

  5. Lord Jesus Christ, my King, I adore Thee!

    Praying in union for everyone’s needs and petitions.

  6. Day 8

    Has anyone really studied this beautiful portrait that Cindy posted? If they say that no artistic rendering has ever done Our Lord and Lady justice, then I cannot comprehend how anyone could have gazed into Our Lord’s eyes and been able to spit on Him and beat Him the way they did. How noble, how sublime Our Lord must truly be!

  7. Lord Jesus Christ, my King, I adore Thee!

    Day 9.
