Page 183 - N 2 your subjects only, but in some sense your fellow-servants. For there is one Lord and Emperor of the world, the great Creator of all things. And with what eyes then will you behold the temple of this common Lord ? With what feet will you tread His sanctuary ? How will you stretch forth those hands in prayer which are still reeking with the blood of the innocent?
