Happy St Remi's Day

Today is the Feast of St Remi,

St. Remigius, bishop of Rheims and confessor, who fell asleep in the Lord on the 13th of January, but is commemorated on this day because of the translation of his body.

From the Roman Martyrology, 1 October

It is this St Remi that baptised Clovis, King of the Franks on Christmas Eve, AD 496, and witnessed the Covenant God made with the Kings of France, establishing their Kingdom as the Eldest Daughter of the Church. It is a pious belief that a dove brought the Holy Chrism from Heaven which the Saint used to anoint the King. This chrism was used to anoint all the Legitimate Kings of France up until the Martyr King, Louis XVI, after which it was destroyed by the revolutionaries out of their hatred for the Altar and the Throne.

(At the Coronation of) King Clovis of the Franks at Rheims (497), ... a dove descend(ed) with an ampoule of oil, with which the king was anointed. All succeeding kings of France were anointed — with the same oil, miraculously resupplied — and crowned at Rheims.

From Wikipedia "Coronations".

The article on him from the Catholic Enclopædia.

His Life from the Golden Legend of Jacobus de Voragine.

More on him from the Order of the Magnificat.

May St Remi pray for France, that she may return to the Covenant with God that he witnessed. May he pray that the Lieutenant of Christ, His Most Christian Majesty Louis XX, by God's grace King of France and Navarre, may be restored to the Throne of Clovis and of his forefather, St Louis IX.

Vive le Christ-roi! Vive la France! Vive le roi, Louis XX!

Ladies and Gentlemen, My Grandson!

Whilst I'm a bit old to be having new children like some of my confreres, I am now at that glorious age where I have grandchildren. Earlier tonight, my son Charles married a wonderful young woman named Amanda (please say a prayer for them, especially since Charles has fallen away). Imagine my surprise when I showed up at the wedding and discovered that my oldest daughter and my youngest grandchild, whom I had never seen, had unexpectedly flown in from California. Here he is in all his glory, my grandson Andrew King. The beautiful woman holding him is my daughter Eugenie-Marie.

French critic of Islam flees threats

The "Religion of Peace" strikes again. The jihadist pigs are threatening the life of a Frenchman because he had the unmitigated gall to tell the truth about their gutter religion and the epileptic pædophile who founded it (may he be damned eternally). Muslims out of Europe!!

28 September

Begin your Novena in honour of the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary today. Remember that this Feast was instituted to remember our great victory over the jihadist swine at Lepanto in 1571.

Fr Lasance suggests any approved prayers of the Church for a novena. It would seem that the Litany of Loretto and the Sub Tuum or the Memorare would be appropriate for this one.

Thanks be to God!

It was on this day 26 years ago, at the age of 33, that I was received into the One, Holy, Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church. As an Orthodox, I recited the Creed in the Western form, swore allegiance to our Holy Father Pope John-Paul II and got an handshake. I regret now that I was not received into a Traditional parish, because I would have taken the following :
Profession of Faith for Converts

I, N. N.,... years old, (born outside the Catholic Church,) have held and believed errors contrary to her teaching. Now enlightened by divine grace, I kneel before you (if this is the case) Reverend Father N.N., having before my eyes and touching with my hands the Holy Gospels; and with a firm faith I believe and profess each and all the articles that are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, that is: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. I admit and embrace most firmly the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and all the other constitutions and prescriptions of the Church. I admit the sacred Scriptures according to the sense which has been held and is still held by Holy Mother Church, whose duty it is to judge the true sense and interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures, and I shall never accept or interpret them except according to the unanimous consent of the Fathers. I profess that the Sacraments of the New Law are, truly and precisely, seven in number, instituted for the salvation of mankind, though all are not necessary for each individual: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. I profess that all confer grace and that of these Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders cannot be repeated without sacrilege. I also accept and admit the Ritual of the Catholic Church in the solemn administration of all the above mentioned Sacraments. I accept and hold, in each and every part, all that has been defined and declared by the Sacred Council of Trent concerning Original Sin and Justification. I profess that in the Mass is offered to God a true, real and propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead; that in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist is really, truly, and substantially the Body and Blood together with the Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that there takes place what the Church calls transubstantiation, that is, the change of all the substance of the bread into the Body and all the substance of the wine into the Blood. I confess also that in receiving under either of these species one receives Jesus Christ, whole and entire. I firmly hold that Purgatory exists and that the souls detained there can be helped by the prayers of the faithful. Likewise I hold that the saints, who reign with Jesus Christ, should be venerated and invoked, that they offer prayers to God for us, and that their relics are to be venerated. I profess firmly that the images of Jesus Christ and of the Mother of God, ever Virgin, as well as of all the saints, should be given due honor and veneration. I also affirm that Jesus Christ left to the Church the faculty to grant indulgences and that their use is most salutary to the Christian people. I recognize the Holy, Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church as the mother and teacher of all the Churches and I promise and swear true obedience to the Roman Pontiff, successor of St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles, and Vicar of Jesus Christ. Besides I accept, without hesitation, and profess all that has been handed down, defined, and declared by the Sacred Canons and by the General Councils, especially by the Sacred Council of Trent and by the (First) Vatican General Council, and in a special manner concerning the primacy and infallibility of the Roman Pontiff. At the same time I condemn and reprove all that the Church has condemned and reproved. This same Catholic faith, outside of which nobody can be saved, which I now freely profess and to which I truly adhere, the same I promise and swear to maintain and profess, with the help of God, entire, inviolate, and with firm constancy until the last breath of life; and I shall strive, as far as possible, that this same faith shall be held, taught, and publicly professed by all those who depend on me and by those of whom I shall have charge. So help me God and these Holy Gospels.

Of course, the bulk of the Profession is simply the Creed of the Council of Trent, which I have since taken (see my sidebar), but it would have been nice!
Anyway, it's been 26 years and, despite all the problems in the Church, I have never regretted my decision. I thank God and the Blessed Mother, who slapped me upside the head and said, "OK, boy! It's time to go home!", that I was led to the only True Faith, that I was led to Tradition and that I am privileged to be a Catholic!
Thanksgiving for Baptismal Graces

I BELIEVE in Thee, O God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth.

Thou hast accepted me as Thy child, and in the laver of regeneration, Thou hast constituted me as an heir of Thy Kingdom.

I believe in Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ, only-begotten Son, Who hast suffered and died for me, and through Thy Precious Blood hast ransomed me from the slavery of Satan.

I believe in Thee, O Holy Spirit, Who hast made me and consecrated me as Thy temple and chosen me as a vessel of grace.

I renounce the devil with all his works and all his pomps. I renounce all the evil desires of the flesh and the world with all its vanities. and deceits, and I firmly resolve to lead a truly Christian life. May the Most Holy Trinity strengthen my purpose, by whom I seal this renewal of my Baptismal vows, in the Name of the Father, + and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

I've been warned!

This was a comment to my post "Thanks be to God". I inadvertently refused the comment, which is just as well, because it's by far too good to be hidden in the combox. Thanks "Islamaphobia Inspector" whoever you are!

Happy Anniversary to The New Crusade

It was one year ago today that I took my first steps into the blogosphere by posting an article by Pat Buchanan on The Fruit of Vatican II.

It has been an interesting year! The Danish cartoons (Buy Danish!!), the French riots and now the controversy over our Holy Father's Regensburg speech. I've blogged on all of this as well as subjects dealing with the breakdown of our Græco-Roman Catholic Civilisation and Culture. I have tended to concentrate on Europe because there are so many excellent Catholic blogs keeping a close eye on the US, but I have occasionally been so irritated that I post an American article.

I have been accused of using sources that my readers have already seen, but I like to think that I may have readers who are not familiar with all the sources and, that by using LifeSiteNews, etc., I may be introducing them to new readers.

I have no interntion of quitting! By God's grace, I will keep blogging on the gutter religion of the pædophile Muhammad (may he be damned eternally!), inspired by Allah, aka Shaitan or the Father of Lies, and his jihadist swine followers. I will continue to fight for the One, Holy, Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Faith in union with our most Holy Lord and Father, the Supreme Pontiff, Benedict XVI and I will keep plugging away for the Instauration of the Social Reign of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Christ the King and His Most Holy Mother our Queen, the victory of the Counter Revolution and the Restoration of Monseigneur le duc d'Anjou to the Throne of his forefathers as His Most Christian Majesty, Louis XX, King of France and Navarre. Along the way, I'll keep up my efforts to occasionally say something witty and amusing!

Palestinian media calls pope 'stupid,' 'criminal'

The jihadist swine threaten world wide jihad when the least insult is made to their gutter religion, but it's OK to insult us whenever they feel like it! When will our Holy Father come to realise that we are at war with the vile followers of the pædophile Muhammad (may he be damned eternally), that there is no hope for peace until his Satan spawned "religion" is eradicated from the face of the earth and preach the new Crusade?

Aznar: “Muslims should apologize for occupying Spain for 800 years”

Jose-Maria Aznar, former PM of Spain, “It is them or it is us. There is no middle ground,” referring to the jihadist pigs. He also wants an apology from the swine for their 800 year occupation of Spain. Hah, as I blogged a few months ago, far from an apology, they are teaching their piglets that Spain is jihadist territory and that they must grow up to reconquer it! Muslims out of Europe!!

My niece sent me this. I have no idea who the young man is who wrote this, but my prayers are with him as he fights our battle against the gutter religion!

I'm Coming For You

Dear Terrorists,
I am a Fighter Pilot. I was born and raised in a small town in New England . I come from a family of five. I was raised in a middle class home and taught my values by my mother and father.

My dad worked a series of jobs in finance and my mom took care of us kids. We were not an overly religious family but attended church most Sundays. It was a nice small Episcopal Church. I have a brother and Sister and I am the youngest in my family. I was the first in many generations to attend college.

I have flown fighter aircraft for 16 years. For me the flying was never a lifelong dream or a "calling," it just happened. I needed a job and I liked the challenge. I continue to do it today because I feel it is important to give back to a nation which has given so much to me. I do it because, although I will never be rich, my family will be comfortable.

I do it because many of my friends have left for the airlines and someone has to do it.

My government has spent millions to train me to fly these Multi-million dollar aircraft. I make about 70,000 dollars a year and after 20 years will be offered a pension.

I like baseball but think the players make too much money. I am in awe of firemen and policemen and what they do each day for my community, and like teachers, they just don't get paid enough.

I respect my elders and always use sir or ma'am when addressing a stranger. I'm not sure about kids these days but I think that's normal for every generation.

I tell you all this because when I come for you, I want you to know me. I won't be hiding behind a woman or a child. I won't be disguised or pretending to be something I am not. I will be in a U.S. Issue flight suit. I will be wearing standard US issue flight gear, and I will be flying a fighter aircraft clearly marked as a US warplane. I want you to know also that I am very good at what I do. I can put a 2,000 lb weapon through a window from 10,000 feet up ( that is 2 miles ). I generally only fly at night, so you may want to start sleeping during the day. I am not eager to die for my country but I am willing to sacrifice my life to protect it from animals like you.

I will do everything in my power to ensure no civilians are hurt as I take aim at you.

My countrymen are a forgiving bunch. Many are already forgetting what you did on Sept 11th. But I will not forget!

I am coming. I hope you know me a little bit better------see you soon...sleep tight.

Am I the only one noticing that our Holy Father's apologies are having no effect? This article shows what we really face. The jihadist pigs will not be satisfied until their gutter religion, founded by the pædophile Muhammad (may he be damned eternally) at the urging of Allah, aka Shaitan or the Father of Lies, rules supreme in the world. We are not at war with terror!! We are at war, a war unto the death, with Islam! Leaders of the West, awake! Awake Christendom!

Can a Muslim be a good American

While this is written from an American view point, it is equally true if you put any Western, non-Muslim nationality in the subject line! A tip of the red beret to John at Orbis Catholicvs.


Can a good Muslim be a good American?

So I sent that question to a friend of mine who
worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.

The following is his reply:

Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to
Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

Religiously - no. Because no other religion is
accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)

Scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the
five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam
forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically - no. Because he must submit to the
mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction o f America who they believe is The Great Satan.

Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry
four women and beat and scourge his wife when she
disobeys him (Quran 4:34).

Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the
American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Mohammed, and
the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam will not nor can not coexist.

Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually - no. Because when we declare "one nation under God," the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names.

Therefore after much study and deliberation.... perhaps we should all be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both g ood Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you may, but this is the truth.

If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements, perhaps you should share this with your friends. The more Americans that truly understand this, the better it will be for our country and for our future.

Pass it on Fellow Americans. The religious war that is now raging is far bigger than we know or can possibly understand.

To everyone out there this is the truth and we should get a hold of this to understand what we are dealing with. If we had a world war and had Muslims in the American service uniform, you cannot count on them to fight for the American flag and our freedoms and our way of life that we hold so dear. Everyone should really understood how close we are to becoming a third world nation and losing our way of life. The Muslims will not stop until we are destroyed or they are. Our forefathers paid a price for what we enjoy today and most of them died early. God Bless you all and God Bless These beautiful United States of America Mick Dwyer, friend and relative.

"Right-wing" Le Pen fully identifies with the Revolution

"VALMY, France Far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen toured an 18th century battle site widely viewed as a symbol of the French Republic and insisted Wednesday that he is the sole champion of the country's values."

Notice also that the darling of many mis-guided Royalists identifies himself totally with "democracy"!

"In the face of a vast coalition of forces that are working for the system, I, Jean-Marie Le Pen, and I alone incarnate democracy," he told about 100 supporters gathered outside the historic Valmy battlefield.

This man claims to represent France! By the prayers of Our Lady of Victory, St Remi, St Louis, Ste Jeanne d'Arc and of all the Saints and Martyrs of France, may God have mercy on the Eldest Daughter of the Church if this is true!

Twenty facts about Islam every infidel should know.

This was originally a comment to my post "Jihadist swine demonstrate outside Westminster Cathedral, London", but it was too good to remain hidden in the combox! Spread the Truth! Link, copy and paste into an email, whatever you like, but get the word out. Islam is a gutter religion, inspired by the Father of Lies Himself and founded on earth by a pædophile, extortionist megalomaniac. It must be destroyed!

Islam ...

1) Is a mind-control and information-control cult founded by a murderer, torturer, brigand, rapist and pedophile called Mohammed. The mind-control and information-control aspects require that all criticism be silenced.

2) Is Mohammed's personality cult. Has no foundations other than Mo's murderous rantings (Koran and Hadith). The Koran consists of two conflicting parts - Meccan and Medinan (peaceful and violent respectively). The Medinan stuff supersedes ('abrogates') the Meccan stuff. Muslims act Medinan, but quote Meccan verses to the gullible infidels.

3) Claims to worship the same God as Christians and Jews, but in fact worships Allah - a demonic channelling through Mohammed's psychopathic ego. The Death Cult mixes garbled versions of Christian and Jewish scriptures with pagan practices such as moon and meteorite-worship, and cut-throat blood sacrifice of animals and non-believers.

4) Has no rational, philosophical nor theological basis, and the whole belief-system is contradicted by science, philosophy, commonsense, human decency and internal inconsistency.

5) Cannot withstand rational criticism. Can only spread and maintain itself by ignorance, illiteracy, war, terrorism, and intimidation. Islam has bloody borders and cannot co-exist peacefully with other belief systems. Winston Churchill said that Islam in a man is as dangerous as hydrophobia (rabies) in a dog.

6) Has a superstitious dread of images of pigs, crosses, Buddhas, Saint George (and his flag) and of course Motoons.

7) Regards Islamic women as semihuman. Wife-beating, incest and child abuse (including mufa’khathat or 'thighing' - the ritual abuse of infants) are encouraged.

8) Regards all unbelievers (Kaffirs, Kuffar, Kufrs, Kafirs) as ritually unclean subhumans to be killed, subjugated, enslaved, exploited or parasitised. Kafirs are described by the Arabic word 'najis' - literally 'filth'. That's why Muslim hatred of Kafirs is intrinsic to their 'religion'. A Kafir doesn't need to DO anything to offend a Muslim, his very existence is enough of an affront.

9) The ethical system applies only to Muslims. Allah encourages rape, pillage, extortion and enslavement of non-Muslims. Morality does not extend beyond the global gang (ummah). Muslim ethics are the ethics of the Mafia.

10) Allah's followers are motivated by hatred, greed and lust. There is no love, mercy or compassion. Allah is vindictive, unpredictable, capricious and devious - "Allah leads astray whom he pleases".

11) The only religion NOT founded on The Golden Rule. Morality is based on Mohammed's example. If Mohammed did it then it's OK for all Muslims. Hence the encouragement of rape, pillage, subjugation and murder of non-believers and the institutionalised pedophilia prevalent throughout Muslim society (justified by Mohammed's activities with Ayesha, his child sex-slave).

12) All human relations are defined by Dominance/Subjugation. Muslims have schizoid inferiority/superiority complexes. (A well-balanced Muslim is one with a chip on each shoulder). They respect strength but despise compromise as weakness. Appeasement invites more aggression. The only political system which has been strong enough to subjugate Islam is Stalinism.

13) Polygamy ensures alpha-males get extra women, leading to a shortage of women for the betas. Beta-males must either jerk off (a sin leading to hell), or form dog-packs and rape or capture kafir women as booty in a razzia, or else self-destruct in the presence of infidels then they can screw 72 mythical virgins in Allah's bordello in the sky. Beta-males are often encouraged by their relatives to become suicide bombers because of the belief that such murderous 'martyrs' will be able to intercede with Allah to take 70 of their relatives to paradise with them.

14) Lying and deception of infidels (taqiyya) is encouraged. This may take many forms, including outright lies, feigned moderation, and condemnation of terrorist attacks to the Kaffir while rejoicing with fellow Muslims. All Muslims are victims of some group of Kafirs and harbor grudges against them and against Kafirs in general. Individuals may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and must be considered potential killers who can flip in an instant (SJS -'Sudden Jihad Syndrome').

15) Muslims are forbidden to befriend Kaffirs except for purposes of deceit or where conversion may be possible.

16) The Koran is Allah's final word and cannot be changed or challenged. To do so is punishable by death. Consequently, the Death Cult can never change or be reformed. The instructions to murder and rape infidels are just as valid now as the day they were written. Since Islam cannot be modernised, the Muslims are attempting to Islamise modernity. This requires spreading Islam in the West and simultaneously preventing any criticism of the cult by intimidation and PC legislation to curtail freedom of expression.

17) Treaties and agreements with Kaffirs are made to be broken (Hudna). The word of a Muslim to a Kafir counts for nothing in the eyes of Allah.

18) The world is divided between Dar-al-Islam and Dar-al-Harb (the domain of war, the Kufr lands). Muslims living in Dar-al-Harb must work to disrupt their host nations until these can be brought into Dar-al-Islam.

19) Muslims have no obligation to their host nations and in fact are encouraged to parasitise them. Welfare fraud, identity theft, forgery etc are endemic in Western Muslim populations, and serious crime against Kaffirs is regarded as normal and justified. Extortion rackets against Kafirs are mandated by the Koran ('jizya' is the Arabic term for 'protection money' payable by Jews and Christians to Muslims).

20) The attack on the host nation isn't just against its religion and economy, but is aimed at its very cultural identity. Islam is a complete system, including a culture, which Muslims regard as superior (despite all evidence to the contrary) to other cultures. Muslims are therefore required to destroy the symbols of 'Jahiliya' (sometimes sp. Jahiliyya) - non-Muslim culture. In the East this has included destruction of Hindu temples and Christian churches and replacement with mosques, and destruction of Buddhist artwork and universities and replacement with heaps of rubble. This process of cultural replacement is now beginning in the West..

Jihadist swine demonstrate outside Westminster Cthedral, London

Take a look at this post! Photos of jihadist swine outside Westminster Cathedral in London, yesterday during the time of Holy Mass, calling for the death of our Holy Father and the destruction of our Holy Faith. It's so enlightening! Our Holy Father quotes a XVth Century Roman Emperor that Islam is violent and to prove him wrong the pigs call for his death!

Pope stops short of apology to Muslims

Our Holy Father is making nicey-nicey, but so far he hasn't apologised. Support him with your prayers and emails, if you feel so inclined. His email is benedictxvi@vatican.va. From Yahoo! News

Characters of the Inquisition

And while we're on the subject of Torquemada and the Inquisition, Athanasius has posted an excellent review of William Thomas Walsh's Characters of the Inquisition. If you're a Trad seeking ammunition with which to defend the Inquistion, here's your ammo box. Well written, historically impeccable, you can't do better than Walsh!

Email the Pope!

As I was surfing and reading emails for TNC, I was listening to BBC3. On the news they said that our Holy Father is coming under "increasing pressure" to aplogise for his remarks about Islam during his recent visit to Bavaria. I have just emailed him begging him not to apologise for speaking the truth about the jihadist swine. I ask my readers to do the same. His email is benedictxvi@vatican.va.

St Torquemada?

Today is the anniversay of the death of Tomas de Torquemada, OP, First Grand Inquisitor of Spain. He must be spinning in his grave today, to see the cesspool of liberalism, modernism, unrepentant sodomy, etc., that Spain has become. Whether or not he is canonised when the Church returns to sanity is unimportant. God knows what his servant Tomas did, and He will reward him. May we praise God for the life of this Hound of God!

Frere Ignatius at Vive Christue Rex! has an excellent post.

Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

A week ago we celebrated our dear Mother's Birthday. Today we celebrate her Sorrows. Remember them? There are Seven:

1) The Prophesy of Simeon over the Infant Jesus (St Luke, 2:34, 35

2) The Flight of the Holy Family into Egypt.(St Matthew 2:13-21)

3) The Loss of the Child Jesus for Three Days. (St Luke 2:41-51)

4) The Meeting of Jesus & Mary Along the Way of the Cross. (St Luke 23:27-31)

5) Mary Watches Jesus Suffer and Die upon the Cross.(St John 19:25-27)

6) Mary Receives the Body of Jesus Taken Down from the Cross. (St Matthew 27:55-61)

7) Mary Watches as the Body of Jesus is Buried in a Tomb. (St Luke 23: 55-56)

Let us pray.
O God, in whose passion the sword of grief did pierce the gentle soul of the glorious Virgin Mary, thy Mother, that so might be fulfilled the word of thy Prophet Simeon : mercifully grant that we who here do call to mind her sorrows ; may be fulfilled with the blessed fruits of thy passion. Who livest and reignest with the Father.

NO! to Turkey in the EU!

Despite my serious reservations about the EU, which I have blogged on before, if there is going to be a Constitution, it must recognise Christianity as the basis of European civilisation. Wasn't it Chesterton or Belloc who said, "Europe is the Faith, the Faith is Europe"?

An article from the EU Governments' EUPolitix newsletter.

"Germany is not the only country keen to see some reference to a Christian God in the EU’s constitution.

But Italy, Poland, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ireland all pushed hard for its conclusion during the first round of negotiations in 2004.

But opposition from the UK, France and Sweden kept religious statements out of the constitutional treaty text .

Instead, the constitution said that the EU drew “inspiration from the cultural, religious and humanist inheritance of Europe” – a vague reference that was not considered strong enough for many Catholic countries.

But with plans still underway to allow Islamic Turkey to join the EU, many political leaders are wary of making too explicit a reference to Christianity."

Why should they care? Turkey is NOT an European country, and has no business in the EU! May God soon grant the day when the jihadist swine are driven out of Kosovo, Albania and Constantinople!

Salesian Priest, 70, Stabbed in Germany

Not content to murder Priests in the lands they control, now the jihadist swine are attacking clerics in Europe! Muslims out of Europe!

From Zenit:

KASSEL, Germany, SEPT. 14, 2006 - A Turk has been arrested in the stabbing of a 70-year-old Salesian parish priest who was attacked at the door of his rectory.

Police have arrested a 28-year-old man in connection with the attack last Monday on Father Aloys Weber.

The Salesian International News Agency (ANS) reported the incident Wednesday, detailing that the assailant repeatedly accused the priest of being "the incarnation of evil."

On Monday afternoon, the assailant went to the door of the rectory. When Father Weber opened the door, he was stabbed three times, twice in the abdomen and once near the heart.

The Salesian was rushed to the hospital, where he was operated on. He is listed in serious condition, ANS reported

The Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary

On this day in a.D. 1683, Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland (in Latin his title was "Joannes III, Dei Gratia rex Poloniae, magnus dux Lithuaniae, Russie, Prussiae, Masoviae, Samogitiae, Livoniae, Smolenscie, Kijoviae, Volhyniae, Podlachiae, Severiae, Czernichoviaeque, etc.") and Charles V Léopold Nicolas Sixte, le duc de Lorraine defeated the vile jihadist swine at the gates of Vienna. Our Holy Father, the Pope, instituted this Feast in thanksgiving for the victory.This was as far west as the gutter religion was able to penetrate.

The battle started on 11 September and concluded on the 12th. Five years ago yesterday, the pigs attacked the WTC and today they tried to destroy the US Embassy in Damascus. They have long memories, so I suggest keeping an eye out on the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary, istituted to commemorate the victory of our forces at the Battle of Lepanto in a.D. 1571.

Star Trek Joke

With a tip of the Red Beret to Bob!

The Iranian ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and
walked out into the lobby where he met the United States ambassador John

They exchanged pleasantries and as they walked the Iranian said, "You
know I have just one question about what I have seen in America.

Ambassador Bolton said, "Well anything I can do to help you, I will."

The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show 'Star Trek and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Chinese, but no Iranians. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Arabs or Muslims on Star Trek."

Bolton laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador and whispered back,

Patricia Ann Puma, obit. 11 September 2001, R+I+P

One of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is to pray for the living and the dead. On this, the fifth anniversary of the murderous attack on the World Trade Center by the jihadist swine, it is fitting that we pray for the victims. A project was started recently to commemorate all the victims throughout the blogosphere. A victim was assigned to each blogger who volunteered. The New Crusade was assigned Patricia Ann Puma, age 33 at her death and the wife of Kevin and mother of Kiefer, 10, BriAnna, 5, and Dylan, 1 (ages as of 09/11/2001).

Let us pray.
We beseech thee, O Lord, of thy loving-kindness, to have mercy upon the soul of this thy handmaid Patricia: that, being purged from all the defilements whereby in this dying body she hath been defouled, she may be restored to her inheritance in everlasting salvation. Through.

May we remember on this day, not only the victims of 9/11, but all those murdered by the jihadists throughout the ages, and remember especially that we are not "at war with terror", we are at war with Islam as we have been for the last almost 1400 years.

British Muslim leader: don't resist terrorism, or you'll get 2 million more terrorists

A fascinating article! "Britain will face have to deal with up to two million Islamic terrorists unless there is an end to 'demonising' of Muslims, the leader of the most influential Muslim organisation (in Britain) has said." Of course, there are fewer than 1.6 million jihadist swine in Britain, so the vile pig will either have to import some or wait while their population increases.

His vicious statement may also backfire: "(B)y suggesting that a majority of British Muslims may be prepared to support or engage in terrorism the Muslim Council chief may undermine figures who have tried to ward off attacks on Muslims."

Institute of the Good Shepherd--New Traditional Institute

I had considered playing the coward on this one and ignoring it, but if the statements in the article reproduced below are true, I cannot remain silent. However, since the news is all over the TradCath blogosphere and forums, I will not go into detail about the new organisation, but just publish some reservations about the news.

If the accusations regarding the members of the new Institute and Alain de Benoist, the founder of le Nouvelle Droite, are true, I'm deeply troubled. I had some personal correspondence with him a number of years ago. I had started an ephemeral TradCath Legitimist magazine called "The Ultra Review" and its salutatory editorial was translated and republished in a couple of French Reviews. He contacted me, I suppose with an hope of getting me to support his nouvelle fascisme and its attendant paganism. I researched him and his movement and realised that no Catholic worthy of the name or with any hope of salvation could be affiliated with him.

As a personal aside, I noticed in the "Scorpion", an English language review of the Nouvelle Droite, published in Germany that there were supportive letters from one Adrian Davies of Bromley, Kent, UK. Intrigued I wrote to Adrian and asked if he was related to Michael. He replied that he was Michael's son! When I met Michael in Chicago at the CVI conference I asked him about it. He rolled his eyes and said, "I don't want to know about it!"

Here is the Wikipedia link to de Benoist. He has also been influenced by the Traditionalist School and one of its founders Anananda K. Coomaraswamy, the pagan father of the prominent sedevacantist Rama Coomaraswamy. Note especially the references to the younger Coomaraswamy's involvement in the pagan Traditionalist School.

Section from Knights of Our Lady Newsletter, #11:

Fascist Catholicism?

As many traditional Catholics are aware, Tradition had its problems in France in 2004 and early 2005, which were the cause of the exclusion of three SSPX priests: Fr. Christophe Héry, Fr. Philippe Laguérie, and, on March 8, Fr. Guillaume de Tanoüarn. Fr. de Tanoüarn, is the director of Servir editions, the editor of two magazines - Certitudes and Pacte – and is in control of several websites. He also owns 40% of the shares of Minute, a far right journal, through which he kindled a national campaign against SSPX superiors and particularly against Bishop Fellay in the French press.

This tragic situation---which is not over yet, and it may ripple into the SSPX at the highest level for example during the Superior General 2006 election, and consequently in other countries---was due to doctrinal dissent over the issues of Liberalism, Tradition, Separation of Church and State, Gnosticism, Masonry, the Plot against Church and Catholic States, and the responsibility of the Jewish people in the death of Our Lord, which resulted in rebellion against authority within the SSPX.

The root of this turmoil seems to lie with the close friendship and admiration of Fr. de Tanoüarn for Alain de Benoist, a fiercely anti-Catholic and Nietzschean philosopher, and the founder and figurehead of the French New Right movement, Nouvelle Droite. In theory, the New Right is anti-socialist and anti-liberal, with nationalistic views, which appeal to part of the right wing public, including Traditionalists. Less widely known is the fact that it also favours neo-paganism, esoterism (or gnosticism), neo-fascism, Indo-European racialism based on the myth of some Hyperborean civilization, anti-Semitism, homosexuality and pansexualism.

The philosophy of Alain de Benoist is in fact quite close to "traditional," symbolist Freemasonry, which uses many ways to infiltrate right wing and far right political parties and organizations, while the longtime anticlerical radical Freemasonry is working in the socialist and left wing camp. Of course, both are serving one and the same "master" and consequently cooperate through their own parliamentary association, just to give one example.

Fr. de Tanoüarn also has admiration for defrocked priest and historian of the Church Emile Poulat, who, like Alain de Benoist, participates in the Politica Hermetica magazine and seminars. He favours separation of Church and State and is also an esoterist.

In addition, the friendship of Fr. de Tanoüarn extends to Arnaud Guyot-Janin, an esoterist pagan, who, despite his supposed recent conversion, still admires and supports Dominique Venner, cofounder of the New Right with Alain de Benoist. Tradition, the Sol Invictus Circle newsletter, of which Arnaud Guyot-Janin is the editor, is well known to St. Nicolas du Chardonnet parishioners.

One indication that the problem is not over is that the French District magazine Fideliter of January-February, 2005, published an article against the very notion of the Social Kingship of Christ and Catholic State. Some weeds still need to be uprooted.

This problem, which is very serious in France since it involves SSPX priests, also crops up in other parts of the world. In fact, far right organisations are courting the traditional faithful, as well as sedevacantists and Feeneyites, who are all the more easily seduced since several far right concepts appear to support their own, i.e., the fight for the survival of their country and resistance to socialism.

Danish Cartoon Update

The jihadist swine have hurt Denmark with their boycott. I call upon my readers to do two things: 1)BUY DANISH! and 2) check the origin of other products you buy. For example, as a lover of Mediterranean food, I use a lot of olive oil. As I started checking origins, I discovered that many imported oils are now a mixture of oils from Spain &/or Italy (where they're actually bottled) and countries such as Tunisia and Turkey. Don't buy products from jihadist countries! The swine already want to destroy us, why should we help finance it?

From Hilary Jane Margaret White

I received this email from my friend Hilary. I encourage all my readers to do as it asks. Pray for LifeSiteNews, contribute whatever you can afford to keep this absolutely vital service on the 'Net and spread this message!

Hello everyone,

And I do mean everyone. As we can all see, I have sent this round to virtually everyone I have ever sent an email to in the last seven years.

Now, normally, knowing as we all do, my demure and retiring nature, one would not expect to be seeing a mass mailing like this from me, but this would be one of those unusual cases.

It's about LifeSite, the website that is more than a website. LifeSiteNews has been bringing the other side of the story on every imaginable aspect of the Life and Family issues, and the international Culture Wars since 1995. We never let anyone get away with anything. We've reported the under reported, stuck pins in the mainstream media's hot air balloons and become the online scourge of many a double-talking "media spokesman" in so many quarters even we've lost track of who we've annoyed.

In fact, I'll bet I have personally managed to irritate to distraction each and every person on this list at least once. And who wouldn't pay good money for that hey?

LifeSiteNews.com is the most effective, widely read, quoted and excoriated online pro-life information source going. We know that we're read in the White House (under Bush and Clinton, but for completely different reasons), at the UN and in the Europarliament, and in many a chancery office.

We have developed a network of readers, sources, tipsters and various informants that would make a Stalin-era KGB officer green and that makes us nearly impossible to scoop. We've made so much noise - especially about the international population control movement, the new reproductive technologies and the dangers of radical feminism - that we are coming to a point where these august bodies of international shennanigans are afraid not to answer our calls.

Have we informed you in the last five years? Have we irritated you to the point where you can't sit still? Have we opened your eyes to something you didn't know about before? Have we occasionally even entertained you a bit?

So what's not to love?

And it's free right? You just log on and click and it's all there in the LifeSite archive. Everything you ever wanted to know (and a bunch of stuff you would frankly have paid good money never to have heard of) at a touch. An archive of information that is now a chronicle of every major issue of interest to the Life and Family and Christian revival movment in every corner of the planet going back to 1995.

Not bad for a shoestring operation, mostly run by people working out of home offices. The wonders of technology!

But even shoestrings cost money and we are having a heck of a time getting the support we need to keep it all in the air.

People often think that the internet is free. But LifeSite's annual expenses for this online Empire of Truth are running to $150,000 Cdn a year and the online appeals get nowhere near it.

The problem, as far as we can see it, is a combination of the near impossible legal difficulties involved in getting a tax deductible status for donations and the fact that few people want to send in money for any service on the 'net. No doubt some of our readers have considered giving us money beyond our wildest dreams of avarice, only to scratch that impulse when it is discovered there is no tax advantage to donating.

It's the way of things in this fallen world, we understand.

We have doubled our page views in just the last year. We enjoy a rolling snowball of public influence and a global reputation, but the online appeals aren't working, so we're looking into a bunch of different options one of which is brazenly asking our friends for money.

Our success is actually our biggest problem. We've got an enormous web presence, but we can't get the donations we need to cover our expenses by the old fashioned online appeal method, so I'm moving on to the personal approach. Y'all are mostly the people who have dealt with me personally in the last five or six or seven years (yes, it's been that long and we're all still in one piece, so no complaining).

You've read my stuff on LifeSite and the blogs, you've taught me, corrected me, worked with me, yelled at me, disagreed with me, supported me, and prayed for me. Some of you have heard my confessions and even seen me with my hair down, so I know I am talking to people here who have invested something in the work I have been involved with, one way or another for nearly eight years.

The thing we need from y'all is two-fold...well, three actually.

Everyone on this list is a believer so we need you to pray for LifeSite. As you might guess, we ruffle quite a few feathers and a little prayer is a big help with that sort of thing. We're serious about this request, BTW, we have had some amazing experiences with people praying for us.

Second, we need your money. There, I've said it; thanks for waiting.

If you can make a big one-time donation that would be great. If you can, as Mother Angelica used to say, put us between your gas bill and Bell Canada, that's even better. But everything helps.

Third, we could use some help spreading this message.

I am sending this to everyone I can think of to whom I have sent an email to about anything interesting in the last five years. After this, it's up to you to spread it again to the next ring in the ripple.

Send this message to your friends and online aquaintances, post it to your blogs, and websites; stick it up on bulletin boards and list serves and whatever else you have to get the word out there.

We have been enormously successful in the last ten years, not quite toppling regimes, but certainly fiercely afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted and causing big things to happen. We are hated and loved by all the right people and we need your help to get us out of a tight spot.

If LifeSite's kind of trouble is the kind you like to see going on out there, we need your help right now.

Donations can be made online at the site http://www.lifesite.net/contribute/

Please Pray for the Newlyweds

This morning I was privileged and blessed to attend the Nuptials of a dear friend, celebrated according to the Traditional Rite. The Mass was held in a small NO Parish Church. Amazingly, the Pastor gave his consent for the NO Table to be temporarily removed and with that and the addition of a temporary (but real) Communion rail, the Church was restored to its former glory. The Mass was celebrated by an older priest of of an NO Order, but he did a wonderful job. The music was traditional and prayerful. All in all it was a beautiful ceremony and I got to break in my new Fr Lasance's New Roman Missal. I ask your prayers for my friend and her new husband, who shall remain nameless in keeping with my policy of only identifying myself in personal posts, that God may grant them a long and blessed marriage.

However, the policy of identifying myself does have its rewards. I heard some very nice things about The New Crusade from guests I had not previously known!
