Special banners, penaflexes, and charts were carried by different people, youth and children. When the procession was passing through cross roads the catechists were halting the procession to pray for a moment . The youth excitingly raised slogans frequently in favour of Christ the King. They gave very strong and practical witness of their faith to their fellow Christians and Muslims.

Fr. Younas Shahzad OP, the parish priest of the Holy Rosary Parish said in his homily that Jesus Christ is king of the universe who rules from the cross. He accepts everyone and even to the thieves and to the sinners. His preferential love is for the poor and needy. He goes after the lost sheep. His kingdom is not to depress others but to give freedom and to practice love, acceptance service, peace, justice, harmony. May we all accept him our king from the core of our hearts and let him rule over us.
