The Feast of Christ the King (in the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, properly the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe) is a relatively recent addition to the western liturgical calendar, having been instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI Roman Catholics adhering to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (as permitted under the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum) use the General Roman Calendar of 1960, and as such continue to observe the feast on its original date of the last Sunday of October.

Pope Pius XI instituted the Feast of Christ the King in his 1925 encyclical letter Quas primas, in response to growing nationalism and secularism[2] and in the context of the unresolved Roman Question. The title of the feast was "D. N. Jesu Christi Regis" (Our Lord Jesus Christ the King), and the date was "the last Sunday of the month of October - the Sunday, that is, which immediately precedes the Feast of All Saints".[3] In Pope John XXIII's 1960 revision of the Calendar, the date and title remained the same and, in the new simpler ranking of feasts, it was classified as a feast of the first class.
