Preface 16 - Christ the King

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part - The Holy Eucharist - Rite Two - Prefaces for Seasons.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, who anointed your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ with the oil of gladness, to be a priest for ever and a king of all: so that by offering himself on the altar of the cross, a pure and atoning victim, he might accomplish the mystery of man's redemption; and, subduing to his rule the whole creation, might render to your eternal Majesty a kingdom endless and universal: a kingdom of truth and life; a kingdom of grace and holiness; a kingdom of peace, of love, and of righteousness.
