Novena to Christ the King Day 6 | A Kingdom that is Wheat Among Weeds

℣. Come, let us worship Jesus Christ, the King of kings.


℟. Come, let us worship Jesus Christ, the King of kings.


℣. The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness, the world and all that is in it. It is he who set it on the seas; on the waters he made it firm.


℟. Come, let us worship Jesus Christ, the King of kings.


A Kingdom that is wheat among weeds.


Let both of them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Collect the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.

Matthew 13:30

(moment of silence)



Christ waited until the right time for everything he did. He came at a specific time in history. He lived hidden for many years. His public life unfolded in particular times and ways. If He is our King, then we must learn to trust in his timing and plan, unafraid of the imperfections and weeds of life, trusting in the patient hope of God, who knows that evil does not have the last word in our lives and that what looks like weeds can also become good wheat.



Concluding Prayer

℣. Let us pray:

Lord Jesus, help us to accept the circumstances that you place before us in our lives, knowing that we must learn to accept the bad with the good. We thank you for all the gifts that you have given us, and seek the understanding that comes from the Holy Spirit, so that we may become instruments through which you can transform even the most painful and difficult situations into moments of grace. Through Christ our Lord.

℟. Amen. 

℣. Christ, reigning with patience,

℟. Thy Kingdom Come!
