On relations of the Church and secular authorities

"A state in which from mountains to the valleys the Power of Christ would be proclaimed, a state in which .... the ideal of Christian love of neighbor would be realized and accomplished, and ... a state that together with the Church of the Living God would become "pillar and confirmation of the truth" and justice (1 Tim. 3:15), such a state is not an ideal to come true in this world of blood and mud."
