Excerpt from Christ the King
The beautiful truth of the Kingship of Christ, which the Church had ever held, her devotion to Jesus Christ as King, which runs like a thread of royal purple through the prayers of the Christian ages, were now to be given a new liturgical significance. And no time, indeed, could have been more opportune than that which the Holy See had chosen to proclaim anew unto all the nations and all the world, the reign of the Saviour over all mankind, the Kingdom of the Prince of Peace.
Three subjects are proposed for consideration in the Encyclical of Pope Pius XI: the Kingship of Christ, the Kingdom of Christ, and the special feast of Jesus Christ, King, based upon both these truths. Of the first alone I shall treat in the present chapter.
