Francis stared down at the Duchess of York's letter. He swallowed, then read aloud in a husky voice, "It was showed by John Sponer that King Richard, late mercifully reigning upon us, was through great treason piteously slain and murdered, to the great heaviness of this City." As Margaret listened, the embittered grey eyes had softened, misted with sudden tears. "My brother may lie in an untended grave," she said, "but he does not lack for an epitaph.
Sharon Kay Penman (The Sunne in Splendour)
The Lord will reign for ever and will give his people the gift of peace.[686]
Francisco Fernández-Carvajal (In Conversation with God - Volume 5 Part 2: Ordinary Time Weeks 29-34)
For 'he [who overcomes] shall rule them [the nations] with an iron rod' -- by shepherding and feeding them with his shepherd's staff. 'Like the vessels of a potter, they [those of the nations who do not repent] shall be broken into pieces -- as I received from My Father. And I will give to him [who overcomes] the morning star.' True as it is that this promise will fully be realized only after the Final Judgment on the New Earth yet to come -- it is also apparent that it will in large measure first be realized prior to that time. For it will first be realized in this present World here and now -- as Christianity extends its victorious advance across the globe, culminating in the christianization of all nations. O Christian, let us too listen to what the Holy Spirit of God says to the Churches! Let us too work to subdue the Earth and to win all of its inhabitants to the glory of Christ! Let us enrich our impoverished spirits! Let us also discipline our few backsliders! Let us encourage, too, our industrious Christians! And let us advance on a broad front throughout the World -- until all nations bow down under the rod of the Good Shepherd Jesus Christ, and until the kingdoms of this World have in practice too become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall keep on reigning and keep on expanding that reign for ever and ever! So on, then, Christian soldiers! Onward, to victory!
Francis Nigel Lee (John's Revelation Unveiled)
Pope Francis I, denouncing “an economy of exclusion,” has made inequality a centerpiece of his reign: Just as the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say “thou shalt not” to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills. How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?
David Cay Johnston (Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality)
When he had ate his fill, and proceeded from the urgent first cup and necessary second to the voluntary third which might be toyed with at leisure, without any particular outcry seeming to suggest he should be on his guard, he leant back, spread the city’s news before him, and, by glances between the items, took a longer survey of the room. Session of the Common Council. Vinegars, Malts, and Spirituous Liquors, Available on Best Terms. Had he been on familiar ground, he would have been able to tell at a glance what particular group of citizens in the great empire of coffee this house aspired to serve: whether it was the place for poetry or gluttony, philosophy or marine insurance, the Indies trade or the meat-porters’ burial club. Ships Landing. Ships Departed. Long Island Estate of Mr De Kyper, with Standing Timber, to be Sold at Auction. But the prints on the yellowed walls were a mixture.

Poem, ‘Hail Liberty, Sweet Succor of a Briton’s Breast’, Offered by ‘Urbanus’ on the Occasion of His Majesty’s Birthday. Over there there were maps on the table, and a contract a-signing; and a ring of men in merchants’ buff-and-grey quizzing one in advocate’s black-and-bands.

Francis Spufford (Golden Hill)
Don’t you know that the Bible records over 200 names and titles for Jesus? Each of them gives light to his different attributes. To those in the dark, He is the Light of the World (John 8:12). To the sick, He is the Healer (Matthew 22:23). To those in sorrow, He is the Comforter (Jeremiah 8:18). The point is: Jesus is everything! He is the answer to everything! And so in whatever you do, invite Him to be with you. Simply utter His name, and experience the security, love and strength that it can give you. Oh! Let the name of Jesus reign in you!
Philippa Alby (The Seven Prayers of Pope Francis)
This means nothing less than that he will be forced to be free.” Once more a humanistic utopianism ends in tyranny, whether in Rousseau’s writing or in the Reign of Terror which carried his position to its conclusion. Robespierre,
Francis A. Schaeffer (How Should We Then Live?: The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture)
that if we are to serve others, for Christ’s sake, we need to be very human ... We have to understand everyone; we must live peaceably with everyone; we must forgive everyone.[376] On the other hand, we shall not call injustice, justice; we shall not say that an offence against God is not an offence against God, or that evil is good. When confronted by evil we shall not reply with another evil, but rather with sound doctrine and good actions: drowning evil in an abundance of good (cf Rom 12:21). That’s how Christ will reign in our souls and in the souls of the people around us.[377]

The most noteworthy knock-Shaq-on-his-rear addition took place on June 26, 2002, when the Houston Rockets used the first pick in the NBA draft to select Yao Ming, the 7-foot-6, 310-pound center who had recently averaged 38.9 points and 20.2 rebounds per game in the playoffs with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association. Though he was just 21 and unfamiliar with high-caliber competition, Yao’s arrival was considered a direct challenge to O’Neal’s reign as the NBA’s mightiest big man. Sure, Shaq was tall. But he wasn’t this tall. Within weeks, a song titled simply “Yao Ming” was being played on Houston radio stations, and Steve Francis, the Rockets’ superstar guard, was being introduced to audiences as “Yao Ming’s teammate.” There was talk—only half in jest—of a Ming dynasty. Put simply, the NBA’s 28 other franchises were doing their all to shove the Lakers off their perch. If that meant copying elements of the triangle offense (as many teams attempted to do), so be it. If that meant adding Mutombo or Clark, so be it. If that meant importing China’s greatest center, so be it. And if that meant throwing punches—well, let’s go.
Jeff Pearlman (Three-Ring Circus: Kobe, Shaq, Phil, and the Crazy Years of the Lakers Dynasty)
Through his preaching and healing, through the pattern of discipleship he called people to follow, through his bodily resurrection from the dead, the Lord Jesus literally embodies for us a new way of life, which conforms to the will and reign of God.
Francis George
A real king is the one who recognizes that, in governing his kingdom, he is a true minister of God. Conversely whoever does not reign with a view to serving God's glory acts not as a ruler but as a robber.
John Calvin
In California history, the death toll of the St. Francis Dam disaster remains second only to that of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. It still reigns as the worst failure of American civil engineering in the twentieth century. Annihilated in the catastrophe, along with $15 million in property and hundreds of lives, was William Mulholland’s reputation.
Michael A. Hiltzik (Colossus: Hoover Dam and the Making of the American Century)
The political term ‘cabal’, which derived from the Hebrew Kabbalah and referred to a secret group seeking to hold onto power, originally retained some of its mystical significance in Charles II’s reign. In 1676, the Royalist newspaper Poor Robin’s Intelligencer satirically reported that the ‘Green ribbon’d cabal’ (the Green Ribbon Club, whose members would go on to form the core of the Whig party) was meeting with Rosicrucians, alchemists and Freemasons.
Francis Young (Magic in Merlin's Realm: A History of Occult Politics in Britain)
as to describe the impact of Francis on his era this way: “ [His life] closed the reign of Byzantine art and of the thought of which it was the image. It is the end of dogmatism and authority. Uncertainty became permissible in some small measure. It marks a date in the history of the human conscience.”3
Jon M. Sweeney (Light in the Dark Ages)
