Christ the King

In Catholic theology, the idea that Jesus Christ is the ultimate source of law and that therefore human law should attempt to conform to divine law. This does not extend only to religious matters, but also to social and economic ones. For example, the notion of Christ the King has been used to defend the right to private property, the right of workers to unionize, and the obligation to follow secular law. For that reason, it has been used to criticize both capitalism and communism in the context of Catholic teaching on social justice.
