Feast of Christ the King

I feel such great sorrow at having offended Thee, O infinite Goodness, that I fain would suffer all the punishment due not only to the sins I have committed, but also to those into which I should have fallen, had it not been for the help of Thy grace.
St. Margaret Mary

Today we can gain a plenary indulgence by the public recitation of the Act of Consecration to the Human Race to Christ the King:

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thy altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are received by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to to draw them all into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of that race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them, a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with
one cry: "Praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and honor for ever." Amen.

The requirements are:
1. public recitation of this prayer
2. 1 Our Father and 1 Hail Mary for the Holy Father
3. Sacramental Confession within 1 week before or after
4. worthily receive Holy Communion
5. be free from the attachment to venial sin.

Viva Cristo Rey!
