5. St. Augustine and St. Alphonsus de Liguori on the religious duties of kings, as kings

See respectively the answers to the questions "What do the Fathers of the Church have to say about this?" and "Are the Doctors of the Church unanimous on this point?" at this The Angelus Online webpage, giving part seven of a serialisation of Fr. Gaudron's Catechism of the Crisis in the Church:

(The stated sources for the relevant quotations from St. Augustine are his Letter 185, Chap. 5, §19, PL 33, col. 801 and "Four Books in Answer to the Grammarian Cresconius," Retractations, Chap. 51, §56, and the stated source for the quotation from St. Alphonsus is Fedelta dei Vassali (June 1777), quoted by Augustin Berthe, C.SS.R., St. Alphonse de Liguori 1696-1787 (Paris: Reteaux), II, 440-41.)

(St. Alphonsus's and St. Augustine's opinions came to my attention via the S.S.P.X. Sydney Priory bulletins of yesterday and two weeks ago, respectively.)
