All Christians can contribute actively in building the Kingdom of God, Pope says

.- 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.

 “Over the months,” explained the Pope, “we have contemplated all His mysteries, from His birth to His ascension into heaven.” “Now with the apostle Paul we recognize that God’s design is to ‘echo in Christ all things, from the heavens and the earth’,” he added.

 “Looking at Him whom eastern liturgy calls the ‘Pantocrator’ or Almighty,” he continued, “the mission of believers, who are called to cooperate in a variety of ministries and charisms, takes on great importance in building up His kingdom.” 

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 ‘Tra le sollecitudini’,  an instruction Pope St. Pius X issued  on sacred music.

The Pope expressed gratitude to “all who put their musical talents and competency at the service of the liturgy.”
