Man received, by the mercy of God, two great blessings: that of priest and that of king. One serves the divine; the other leads and administers the human ones. Both blessings come from the same source and adorn human life. Therefore, nothing will value the emperor more than the dignity of a priest, while the latter will always pray for the emperor. For, when one will fulfill his duty in an impeccable and devout manner, and the other, in turn, will use the authority given to him justly and competently, there will be a splendid harmony which will give mankind all that it needs.
