The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Thirteen: The Fifth Law: Claiming Ecclesiastical Goods For Christ the Lord, and Their Pious Use

Since, therefore, Your Majesty’s realm in relation to the religion and Kingdom of Christ is very gravely endangered by the indicated pillage and dispersion of church property, Your Majesty must quickly and conscientiously take care and bring it about that, just as the government has its treasury, its property, so our eternal King Jesus Christ, as he has his Kingdom in Your Majesty’s realm, should also have his treasury and property.
