Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King

On this, the last Sunday of the Church's year, we celebrate the feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King. Christ is the King who reigns from the cross; crowned with thorns, He shows His sovereignty not by oppression but by giving His life for His people. This image is taken from the Cathedral's window of the English martyrs. It shows Christ, King of Martyrs, crowned with thorns and yet reigning in glory.
