The 25th of each month is a day traditionally dedicated to the Infant Jesus, a remembrance of His Incarnation and Nativity. At the Shrine of Christ the King in Chicago, the novena to the Infant Jesus is said from the 17th to the 25th of every month.

Beginning in January, on the closing day of each novena, there will be a Votive Mass of the Nativity at the Shrine at 7:00 PM, followed by Adoration and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

On Thursday, November 29, 2007, Msgr. R. Michael Schmitz celebrated High Mass at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City, the crowning moment of a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. After forty years, the Mass of the Ages returned to the capital of a people who, not so long ago, heroically shed their blood for Cristo Rey.

On October 10, 2007, Msgr. R. Michael Schmitz, Vicar General of the Institute of Christ the King and Provincial Superior for the United States, celebrated the 25th anniversary of his ordination to the Holy Priesthood.

Monsignor Schmitz was ordained in Rome on October 10, 1982, by then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. From the Archdiocese of Cologne, he entered the German College in Rome in 1976 and pursued his seminary and graduate studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University, earning a Doctorate in Dogmatic Theology in 1988. Subsequently, in 1992, he received a Licentiate in Canon Law from Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich. Pope John Paul II elevated him to the rank of Chaplain of His Holiness in 1998. Monsignor Schmitz is a member of the Academy of Theology in Rome since 1988 and a chaplain of the Sovereign Order of Malta.

A friend of the founders of the Institute of Christ the King, Monsignor Gilles Wach and Father Philippe Mora, Monsignor Schmitz collaborated with the Institute as visiting professor at its seminary, eventually founding its German Province. He was incardinated into the Institute in September 2000 and was appointed its Vicar General that same year, also taking on the responsbility of Provincial Superior for the United States.

Please keep Monsignor Michael Schmitz in your prayers, especially on October 10, the day of his Ordination, and October 11, the day of his first Holy Mass.
