Pearls of Wisdom

This being the Feast of Christ the King let us look at  the source of the acclamation For yours is the kingdom, power and glory:

Book of Daniel 7:13-14

As the visions during the night continued, I saw coming with the clouds of heaven

One like a son of man.

When he reached the Ancient of Days and was presented before him,

He received dominion, splendor, and kingship;

all nations, peoples and tongues will serve him.

His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away,

his kingship, one that shall not be destroyed.

Earlier in Daniel 2:37-38 there is something similar:

This was the dream; the interpretation we shall also give in the king’s presence.

You, O king, are the king of kings; to you the God of heaven has given dominion and strength, power and glory.
