First - for the children.

Now for us big kids:
Get to know the readings.
Reflections for this Sunday can be found at The Center for Liturgy Sunday.
Here is an excerpt of what you can find there (author Reginald H. Fuller, Scripture in Depth):

The feast of Christ the King, coming as it does at the end of the Church year, has acquired thereby an eschatological significance. Christ’s enthronement at the ascension is the opening act of his final eschatological reign, and his continued heavenly rule between the ascension and his return marks the progressive defeat of the powers of evil.
