.- During the Angelus prayer last Sunday, during the solemnity of Christ the King, Pope John Paul said all Christians, with their own charismas, can contribute in building the Kingdom of God.
âOver the months,â explained the Pope, âwe have contemplated all His mysteries, from His birth to His ascension into heaven.â âNow with the apostle Paul we recognize that Godâs design is to âecho in Christ all things, from the heavens and the earthâ,â he added.
âLooking at Him whom eastern liturgy calls the âPantocratorâ or Almighty,â he continued, âthe mission of believers, who are called to cooperate in a variety of ministries and charisms, takes on great importance in building up His kingdom.â
The Holy Father concluded his brief remarks by greeting participants in the Congress on Sacred Music of the Association of St. Cecilia, organized on the centenary of the Motu proprio âTra le sollecitudiniâ, an instruction Pope St. Pius X issued on sacred music.
The Pope expressed gratitude to âall who put their musical talents and competency at the service of the liturgy.â
