11. Governing through men –second causes–, Christ governs temporal things, and governs them all, whether they are private or individual, whether public, social or political; the same as He governs individuals, families and social groups, and also nations, peoples, kingdoms or republics.
How can a ruler –second cause– seek the common good without submitting to the First Cause, to Christ the King, the Common Good par excellence? Conclusion: Pius XI says that temporal authority will be stable and human rights firm and respected when the secular ruler recognizes and affirms his dependence on Christ the King; when human law merges with divine natural law.
