The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter One: By What Ways and Means the Kingdom of Christ Can and Should Be Reformed by Devout Kings

Your Majesty must remember that sovereign power in this realm was entrusted to him by the supreme King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and that every soul was made subject to his royal authority, including the souls of bishops and all the clergy (Rom. 13:1). That is why it is fitting for Your Majesty to be quite seriously concerned about the restoration of their duty and ministry and to act with a more burning energy toward this very goal, the more the renewal of this office contributes toward the salvation of all and the more its neglect endangers and its dissipation damages everyone’s salvation.
