Catholic Christendom # 4

Christ-endom has to do with Jesus Christ being King, boss, over all people nations and creation.  He is literally this because He created us and redeemed us on the Cross.

The New Testament, literally begins with the Gospel of Matthew with the Royal lineage of Jesus Christ.  This genealogy is traced through the royal tribe of Judah, and King David.  But those kingdoms of David and Solomon were only temporal and prefigurations of the Jesus’ temporal and spiritual kingdom, but more specifically, His perfect eternal kingdom that has yet to be completely realized.

Really good mocking central image

St. Robert Bellarmine shows that the church fathers taught that when the Angel Gabriel says: “The Lord will give Him the throne of David His Father.” it means a spiritual and eternal kingdom, and not the temporal and carnal kingdom of King David so that Jesus might reign “over the house of Jacob forever“.

At the time of Jesus’ coming,  the Israelites had lost their earthly power to the Romans.  So when the Father sent Jesus Christ to be their messiah and king in a spiritual and eternal way, most of the Jews rejected Him because they were looking for a worldly king.  The Jews are still looking for this purely worldly messiah to come and give them a worldly kingdom.  That is why they lay up all their treasures, (jewelers and bankers), in this life and forget about storing up treasures in the eternal kingdom of heaven.  (The word jewelry comes from the word Jew.)

Jesus’ power comes from His Father who anointed Him messiah, not from the conquest of territory or being chosen by the people to be their king. For this reason, we always see Jesus fleeing from the crowds who want to make them their worldly messiah and king.  Their small minded concept of a messiah and king had to be rejected, because His kingship will endure long after this world no longer exist.  (“for the former things are pass away” (Apocalypse)

“and we look for new heavens and a new earth” (2 Peter 3:13).

In the Gospel of St. John on the Feast of Christ the King, Jesus says to Pontius Pilate : “My kingdom is not of this world”.  What He meant was that His kingdom had nothing to do with worldly honors, wealth and power.  He had already rejected that kingship when the devil offered all this to Him, ‘if only He would adore him’.  His kingship comes from above, from His divinity, that is hidden in His humble humanity.11_06_01_sacred_heart

Jesus’ Kingship is over the devil too.

“Now will the prince (royal) of this world be cast out.”  John 12: 31.

“Thus did God disarm the principalities and powers.  He made a public show of them, leading them off captive, triumphed in the person of Christ.” Col. 2: 15.

“For this the Son of God appeared that He might undo the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8.

His kingship liberates us from the prince of darkness, (the devil), and restores us as sons of God.

Jesus did not come into a palace, but but was born a king in an animal’s pen.

“Behold they that are clothed in soft garments, are in the houses of kings.” Matt. 11: 8.

But His Father honors Him with the royal star and by foreign kings who come to worship Him and give Him royal gold.  The Jewish king Herod, who should have recognized Him, obeyed Him and adored Him, instead attempts to destroy Him.

ST.JohnThis Divine King was condemned for the crime of “claiming to be King of the Jews” as was evident by what was written on His cross.  He was born a King, crowned a King (crown of thorns) and died a King.

If Jesus had at that time started a temporal kingdom in Israel, after His ascension into heaven, it would have had to last.  But as we know, many countries have overrun and ruled over Israel since the time of Christ.

Jesus promised that at the end of time, (and I hope it is soon), He will come in all His Divine Glory and power, surrounded by His angels.  No longer will men be able to mock Him and disobey Him.  All will be subject to Him as king, whether they like it or not.

Those who have obeyed His Catholic Church’s 2000 year old teachings, preached the Gospel, shown love and helped the poor, will rule with Him forever.  Those who have obeyed their own pleasure seeking passions in this life and have failed to show charity, will have the devil as their prince and ruler forever.

Meanwhile we are somewhere between the first coming of Jesus as a humble suffering servant King who came “to serve and not to be served”, and the Eschatological times.  We are in what should be Christendom time where Jesus is our Eternal, Spiritual and Temperal King.  But we only find specks of Christendom in a few churches and families.  For this reason we are working to restore Jesus’ rule over all.

We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics who try to love, obey and adore Our King, Jesus Christ.  He is our all powerful King who saves us from the devil, from eternal damnation and protects us every day.

 

Humanae Vitae’s 47th Aniversary

My Friend just started LAPIDESCLAMANT BLOG and this is what he published for Humanae Vitae Sunday:

Garbage Cans in Church Vestibules to Throw Away Contraceptives

Tomorrow (July 25th) marks the 47th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, the encyclical letter of Pope Paul VI that, among other things, reiterated the Church’s teaching on contraception: it’s still a mortal sin.Inspired by Pope Francis’s recent comments on “protest art,” the following picture is a suggestion for pastors to remind their parishioners this weekend about Humanae Vitae and the teaching it contains in art-like form. It could be placed in the church vestibule.

In light of another encyclical — the recently promulgated Laudato Si’ by Pope Francis on caring for the environment — pastors may find it beneficial to place a second garbage can in the vestibule:

 

St. James The Greater Apostle July 25

St. James the GreaterJames_ANDREA DEL SARTO

(Heb. Yakob; Sept. Iakob; N.T. Greek Iakobos; a favourite name among the later Jews).

The son of Zebedee (q.v.) and Salome (Cf. Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40; 16:1). Zahn asserts that Salome was the daughter of a priest. James is styled “the Greater” to distinguish him from the Apostle James “the Less,” who was probably shorter of stature. We know nothing of St. James’s early life. He was the brother of John, the beloved disciple, and probably the elder of the two.

His parents seem to have been people of means as appears from the following facts.

  • Zebedee was a fisherman of the Lake of Galilee, who probably lived in or near Bethsaida (John, i, 44), perhaps in Capharnaum; and had some boatmen or hired men as his usual attendants (Mark, i, 20).
  • Salome was one of the pious women who afterwards followed Christ and “ministered unto him of their substance” (cf. Matt., xxvii, 55, sq.; Mark, xv, 40; xvi, 1; Luke, viii, 2 sq.; xxiii, 55-xxiv, 1).
  • St. John was personally known to the high-priest (John, xviii, 16); and must have had wherewithal to provide for the Mother of Jesus (John, xix, 27).

It is probable, according to Acts 4:13, that John (and consequently his brother James) had not received the technical training of the rabbinical schools; in this sense they were unlearned and without any official position among the Jews. But, according to the social rank of their parents, they must have been men of ordinary education, in the common walks of Jewish life. They had frequent opportunity of coming in contact with Greek life and language, which were already widely spread along the shores of the Galilean Sea.

Relation of St. James to Jesus

Some authors, comparing John 19:25 with Matthew 28:56 and Mark 15:40, identify, and probably rightly so, Mary the Mother of James the Less and of Joseph in Mark and Matthew with “Mary of Cleophas” in John. As the name of Mary Magdalen occurs in the three lists, they identify further Salome in Mark with “the mother of the sons of Zebedee” in Matthew; finally they identify Salome with “his mother’s sister” in John. They suppose, for this last identification, that four women are designated by John, xix, 25; the Syriac “Peshito” gives the reading: “His mother and his mother’s sister, and Mary of Cleophas and Mary Magdalen.” If this last supposition is right, Salome was a sister of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and James the Greater and John were first cousins of the Lord; this may explain the discipleship of the two brothers, Salome’s request and their own claim to the first position in His kingdom, and His commendation of the Blessed Virgin to her own nephew. But it is doubtful whether the Greek admits of this construction without the addition or the omission of kai (and). Thus the relationship of St. James to Jesus remains doubtful.

His life and apostolate

The Galilean origin of St. James in some degree explains the energy of temper and the vehemence of character which earned for him and St. John the name ofBoanerges, “sons of thunder” (Mark 3:17); the Galilean race was religious, hardy, industrious, brave, and the strongest defender of the Jewish nation. When John the Baptist proclaimed the kingdom of the Messias, St. John became a disciple (John 1:35); he was directed to “the Lamb of God” and afterwards brought his brother James to the Messias; the obvious meaning of John, i, 41, is that St. Andrew finds his brother (St. Peter) first and that afterwards St. John (who does not name himself, according to his habitual and characteristic reserve and silence about himself) finds his brother (St. James). The call of St. James to the discipleship of the Messias is reported in a parallel or identical narration by Matthew 4:18-22; Mark 1:19 sq.; and Luke 5:1-11. The two sons of Zebedee, as well as Simon (Peter) and his brother Andrew with whom they were in partnership (Luke 5:10), were called by the Lord upon the Sea of Galilee, where all four with Zebedee and his hired servants were engaged in their ordinary occupation of fishing. The sons of Zebedee “forthwith left their nets and father, and followed him” (Matthew 4:22), and became “fishers of men”. St. James was afterwards with the other eleven called to the Apostleship (Matt., x, 1-4; Mark, iii, 13-19; Luke, vi, 12-16; Acts, i, 13). In all four lists the names of Peter and Andrew, James and John form the first group, a prominent and chosen group (cf. Mark, xiii, 3); especially Peter, James, and John. These three Apostles alone were admitted to be present at the miracle of the raising of Jairus’s daughter (Mark, v, 37; Luke, viii, 51), at the Transfiguration (Mark, ix, 1; Matt., xvii, 1; Luke, ix, 28), and the Agony in Gethsemani (Matt., xxvi, 37; Mark, xiv, 33). The fact that the name of James occurs always (except in Luke, viii, 51; ix, 28; Acts, i, 13–Gr. Text) before that of his brother seems to imply that James was the elder of the two. It is worthy of notice that James is never mentioned in the Gospel of St. John; this author observes a humble reserve not only with regard to himself, but also about the members of his family.

Several incidents scattered through the Synoptics suggest that James and John had that particular character indicated by the name “Boanerges,” sons of thunder, given to them by the Lord (Mark, iii, 17); they were burning and impetuous in their evangelical zeal and severe in temper. The two brothers showed their fiery temperament against “a certain man casting out devils” in the name of the Christ; John, answering, said: “We [James is probably meant] forbade him, because he followeth not with us” (Luke, ix, 49). When the Samaritans refused to receive Christ, James and John said: “Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them?” (Luke, ix, 54; cf. v. 49).

His martyrdom

On the last journey to Jerusalem, their mother Salome came to the Lord and said to Him: “Say that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy kingdom” (Matt., xx, 21). And the two brothers, still ignorant of the spiritual nature of the Messianic Kingdom, joined with their mother in this eager ambition (Mark 10:37). And on their assertion that they are willing to drink the chalice that He drinks of, and to be baptized with the baptism of His sufferings, Jesus assured them that they will share His sufferings (Mark 5:38-39).

James won the crown of martyrdom fourteen years after this prophecy, A.D. 44. Herod Agrippa I, son of Aristobulus and grandson of Herod the Great, reigned at that time as “king” over a wider dominion than that of his grandfather. His great object was to please the Jews in every way, and he showed great regard for the Mosaic Law and Jewish customs. In pursuance of this policy, on the occasion of the Passover of A.D. 44, he perpetrated cruelties upon the Church, whose rapid growth incensed the Jews. The zealous temper of James and his leading part in the Jewish Christian communities probably led Agrippa to choose him as the first victim. “He killed James, the brother of John, with the sword.” (Acts 12:1-2). According to a tradition, which, as we learn from Eusebius (Hist. Eccl., II, ix, 2, 3), was received from Clement of Alexandria (in the seventh book of his lost “Hypotyposes”), the accuser who led the Apostle to judgment, moved by his confession, became himself a Christian, and they were beheaded together. As Clement testifies expressly that the account was given him “by those who were before him,” this tradition has a better foundation than many other traditions and legends respecting the Apostolic labours and death of St. James, which are related in the Latin “Passio Jacobi Majoris”, the Ethiopic “Acts of James”, and so on.

St. James in Spain

The tradition asserting that James the Greater preached the Gospel in Spain, and that his body was translated to Compostela, claims more serious consideration.

According to this tradition St. James the Greater, having preached Christianity in Spain, returned to Judea and was put to death by order of Herod; his body was miraculously translated to Iria Flavia in the northwest of Spain, and later to Compostela, which town, especially during the Middle Ages, became one of the most famous places of pilgrimage in the world. The vow of making a pilgrimage to Compostela to honour the sepulchre of St. James is still reserved to the pope, who alone of his own or ordinary right can dispense from it. In the twelfth century was founded the Order of Knights of St. James of Compostela (see SAINT JAMES OF COMPOSTELA, ORDER OF).

With regard to the preaching of the Gospel in Spain by St. James the greater, several difficulties have been raised:

  • St. James suffered martyrdom A.D. 44 (Acts 12:2), and, according to the tradition of the early Church, he had not yet left Jerusalem at this time (cf. Clement of Alexandria, “Strom.”, VI, Apollonius, quoted by Euseb., “Hist. Eccl.” VI, xviii).
  • St. Paul in his Epistle to the Romans (A.D. 58) expressed the intention to visit Spain (Romans 15:24) just after he had mentioned (15:20) that he did not “build upon another man’s foundation.”
  • The argument ex silentio: although the tradition that James founded an Apostolic see in Spain was current in the year 700, no certain mention of such tradition is to be found in the genuine writings of early writers nor in the early councils; the first certain mention we find in the ninth century, in Notker, a monk of St. Gall (Martyrol., 25 July), Walafried Strabo (Poema de XII Apost.), and others.
  • The tradition was not unanimously admitted afterwards, while numerous scholars reject it. The Bollandists however defended it (see Acta Sanctorum, July, VI and VII, where other sources are given).

The authenticity of the sacred relic of Compostela has been questioned and is still doubted. Even if St. James the Greater did not preach the Christian religion in Spain, his body may have been brought to Compostela, and this was already the opinion of Notker. According to another tradition, the relics of the Apostle are kept in the church of St-Saturnin at Toulouse (France), but it is not improbable that such sacred relics should have been divided between two churches. A strong argument in favour of the authenticity of the sacred relics of Compostela is the Bull of Leo XIII, “Omnipotens Deus,” of 1 November, 1884.

Catholic Christendom # 3

Catholic Christendom is founded on, what all other Catholic beliefs and practices are founded on, the whole Holy Bible, (the Old and the New Testament), and tradition.  Our faith is based is not only on what Jesus taught and did in the New Testament, but also on what came before Him and led up to His coming, the Old Testament.BookofHours

But we Catholics hold the 4 Gospels, (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), in the highest regards when it come to understanding Christianity.  This is because only in the Gospels do we find the actual words that Jesus said.   They also contain everything else He taught and did in His 3 years of public ministry.

Then comes the Acts of the Apostles, epistles of the apostles and the Book of Revelation.  And finally comes the Old Testament.  In this part of the Bible we find these historical facts;

  • How God created man and woman and everything else.
  • The rebellion and fall of Eve and Adam.
  • The flood and Noah.
  • Abraham’s call to be the father of God’s people.
  • The miraculous conception of Isaac.
  • Jacob and his 12 sons that form the 12 tribes of Israel,
  • Joseph sold into Egypt.
  • Jacob and his other 11 sons moving to Egypt.
  • Moses’ liberation of Israel from slavery in Egypt through God’s plagues.
  • The 40 years in the desert.
  • Joshua miraculous entering into the promise land without any war.
  • The great priests prophets, and judges, Eli and Samuel.
  • King Saul, King David, King Solomon.
  • The exile into Babylonia.
  • The writing and teaching of the prophets.
  • The liberation of Israel by the Machabees brothers.

In the Old Testament we see God making a covenant with the Patriarch Abraham by circumcision of the first born male and the sacrifices of animals.  God promised to multiply his descendants to be as numerous as the stars of the sky.  He will be their God, and they will be His people.  God chooses only men to lead and only men are marked with the sign of the covenant, circumcision.abraham-640x480Abraham obeyed God and was willing to sacrifice his only son Isaac.

Then we see God leading his people through Moses.  He is chosen by God to be the intermediator between God and HIs people.  God reveals His divine laws through him and demands that the Israelites obey them.  If they obey God’s loving laws, they receive God’s protection and blessings.  When they disobey God’s law, they were cursed or killed.  These laws also came with  instructions on what punishment was to be applied to anyone who broke them, including death.  From this is where the idea of capital punishment comes from.

God also revealed specific, exact laws on all their religious practices too.  On what tribe priests would come from, how rites and sacrifices were to be made, keeping holy the Sabbath, what vestments were to be worn, how the priests and people had to purify themselves before praying and exactly what objects He wanted to be used in these Jewish rituals.

His laws were also very demanding on morals, like homosexual sex, stealing, adultery, lepers, abusing the poor and aliens.  When these laws were broken, He punished them by either fire, earthquakes or snakes.  Moses also was ordered by God to punish them by slaughtering them when they adored the golden calf.   It is clear in the Old Testament that God’s law are not to be broken, and if they are there are severe consequences.

728147-moses1Finally Joshua leads the Israelites into the Promised Land, a country filled with cities, buildings and vineyards that God gives them without any battles.  They are given other peoples buildings or orchards and vineyards with out every having to build them or plant them.  The Promised Land is a prefigurement of Christendom or what I will call a ‘Theodom’.

At the beginning living in the Promise Land, God continues to lead and punish His people through His chosen priests, prophets and judges.  Samuel is one of the greatest and holy ones.  God always would correct His people by raising up a prophet to guide them.

Then the people cry out to God to give them a king to rule them like all the other tribes around them.  He warns them of the taxes, wars, their giving of their young men as warriors and their women as cooks and all the other cost that it will cause them.  Nevertheless, He concedes to their wishes and this is where, you could say, when Theocracy began.

God is the true King, and the kings of Israel were only to be His ministers.  But the kings often forgot this and disobeyed God.  King Saul was hand picked by God, yet he turns evil and tries to kill David, besides breaking other laws set down by God.

King David is a king after God’s own heart.  Yet he too sins gravely and is punished for it.  But God forgives him and gives him a promise that his kingship would last forever.  That was the hope of Israel, that a King, Messiah and Prophet would come from the descendants of King David who would liberate them from all the oppressors and heal all their wounds.

His son, King Solomon, is greatly endowed with gifts from God.  With his fathers materials, silver and gold, he builds two things, the Great Temple for God and a palace for him as king in Jerusalem.  (We see here the two parts of Theocracy, God first, the king second).  He is a great king, judge and disciplinarian.  Yet he falls because of his lust for women, which cause him to allow his pagan concubines to practice and teach to the Israelites their evil false religions.  Because of this, the Theocracy is divided. Queen of Saba and Solomen_TISCHBEIN, Johann Friedrich AugustQueen of Saba amazed by the wisdom of King Solomon

Later on, because of the continual breaking of God’s law by worshiping and sacrificing to false gods, the Israelites are taken into captivity by the Babylonians.  Theocracy is completely destroyed because of the Israelites worshiping of false gods.  They reaped what they had sown.

The Machabees brothers begin to battle to free Israel from forced pagan worship and the covering over of their circumcision, the mark of the covenant.  They again enforced God’s laws and they were blessed.

Then in the fulness of time, God in His love and mercy, sent His only Begotten Son, Jesus to be the King Messiah He had promised them.  

He has raised up for us a mighty Savior,
Born of the house of His servant David.
Through His holy prophets He promised of old
That He would save us from our enemies,
From the hands of all who hate us.  Canticle of Zachariah.

We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to know the constant love and concern God has shown on His people, the Israelites before, and now on us, the Catholics, through Jesus Christ Our King.

Good News For Traditional Catholic Pro Lifers

I have a post that lists the companies that support Planned Murderhood so that we can boycott them, (not purchase any of the products or access their services).  The great news is that since the video on their selling baby parts, thousands of people are accessing this blog to get the list so as to be able to boycott these companies.  I hope they are feeling the financial impact of supporting this racist, baby killing organization started by Margaret Sanger a eugenist.  Margaret Sanger and KKK

Our government supports them with our tax money so they can go throughout the world killing off minorities.  I have not received a salary for many years.  My bishop wanted me to take it and them donate it back to the parish.  I said no, because I do not want to have to pay taxes that goes towards killing babies, forced sterilization of poor women, forcing condoms on people who do not even have enough food to eat or medical care and pushing the use of birthcontrol.abortion1

What would the animal lovers do if there was an organization that aborts baby dogs and cats and harvest their organs, tissues and muscles to sell.  There would be intense furor all over the world.  Yet, mothers, at abortion mills, can have their unborn babies killed, (by an organization that harvests their organs, tissues and muscles), just because they are an inconvenience to our selfish life styles.

IMG_4773I love animals.  They are a great gift to us from God and they need to be respected.  But they do not have eternal souls and for that reason they may be killed to be eaten and used to get other necessary things from them, like furs.  We do not abuse them, or kill them, just for the fun of it.

St. Christina Virgin and Martyr July 24

St. Christina of Bolsena
Saint Christina was the daughter of a rich and powerful magistrate named Urban. Her father, who was deep in the practices of paganism, had a number of golden idols. His young daughter broke them, then distributed the pieces among the poor. Infuriated by this act, Urban became the persecutor of his own daughter. He had her whipped with rods and thrown into a dungeon. Christina remained unshaken in her faith. Her tormentor brought her forth to have her body torn by iron hooks, then fastened to a rack beneath which a fire was kindled. But God watched over His servant and turned the flames back toward the onlookers, several of whom perished.

The torments to which this young girl was subjected would seem as difficult to devise as to imagine; but God was beside her at all times. After a heavy stone was attached to her neck, Saint Christina was thrown into the lake of Bolsena, but was rescued by an Angel and seen wearing a stole and walking on the water, accompanied by several Angels. Her father, hearing she was still alive, died suddenly amid atrocious sufferings. A new judge succeeded him, a cruel pagan experienced in persecuting the Christians. He tried to win her by reminding her of her nobility, suggesting she was in serious error. Her reply infuriated him: “Christ, whom you despise, will tear me out of your hands!” Then Saint Christina suffered the most inhuman torments. The second judge also was struck down by divine justice. A third one named Julian, succeeded him. “Magician!” he cried, “adore the gods, or I will put you to death!” She survived a raging furnace, after remaining in it for five days. Serpents and vipers thrown into her prison did not touch her, but killed the magician who had brought them there. She sent them away in the name of Christ, after restoring the unfortunate magician to life; he was converted and thanked the God of Christina and the Saint. Then her tongue was cut out.

The Saint prayed to be allowed to finish her course. When she was pierced with arrows, she gained the martyr’s crown at Tyro, a city which formerly stood on an island in the lake of Bolsena in Italy, but has since been swallowed up by the waters. Her relics are now at Palermo in Sicily. Her tomb was discovered in the 19th century at Bolsena, marked with an inscription dating from the 10th century.

Catholic Christendom # 2

Catholic Christendom means a part of the world where the Catholic Church had great influence and power over religion, governments and politics.   It means that Jesus Christ is the King over the Church and government.  Jesus Christ deserves this power over all the Church, states, people, and things because first;

  • He created us and the Universe,
  • He purchased us, (redeemed us), from the devil, by dying on the cross.
  • He made all things new in Him.

crucifixJesus relegates His power and authority to His vicar on earth, the pope.  He is to be the prime minister who is head over a hierarchical Church consisting of cardinals, bishops, abbots, abbesses, religious and priests.  These delegates are meant to have temporal authority over emperors, kings, queens, princes, mayors etc.  Religious authorities rank first, then emperors, then empresses, kings, queens, princes, and on and on down the authority line.Crusaders_annoucement_2

Men have been given by God authority over their wives and families to love them, to keep them Catholic, to protect and to provide for them.  Mothers have authority over their children and the eldest sibling has authority over younger ones.  (You still find Catholic belief when Hispanics confess; ‘not respecting or obeying their elders’).

The only country on earth where there is still any vestige of this, is the Vatican State.  Other than this tiny State, there is no longer any other place.  There were places where the Catholic Church still had influence in the government.  But that has since changed.  The masons have systematically infiltrated every country where this Catholic influence was.  They accomplished this through what is call ‘filibusters’, (which is to put slowly masons in government positions and then to overthrow the government and pass laws and constitutions against the Catholic Church).

In their book, ‘The Freemasons in America: Inside the Secret Society’ by H Paul Jeffers, you read about this happening in Florida, Louisiana and Texas.  Where the masons are, there you will find the star or what is really a pentagram.  iuThe pentagram is the five pointed star represented the earth, air, fire, water and spirit that wiccans use.  Remember they believe in a new age spirituality and their magazine here in the USA was called that.  They put the pentagram star in the USA flag.  Texas is know as the lone star state.gw_apron_with_blue_background_1George Washington’s Masonic Apron with pentagon to the right. 

So what most traditional Catholics would think of when they say Christendom, is a hope that someday, by a miracle, there will be a return to Catholicism and governments like what was lived in Emperor Charlemagne’s time.  In the mean time, it is simple a dream and a personal commitment to Christ the King in our families.

They believe, in and try to live, this hierarchical authority paradigm in their traditional Catholic parishes to some extent and in their homes where the man is the head of his family.  You can still see some traces of this in the vow of obedience religious take to obey their superior.

This is greatly emphasized by the Society of St. Pius X.  They keep in mind that Jesus has been dethroned in the Church and in society.  They attempt to live this in their parishes and families.  Christ surrounded by angels_Antwerp, Kininklijk Museum voor Shone Kunsten_1480s

Michael Davies wrote a great small book on Christendom called; ‘The Reign of Christ the King’.

We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to know that Jesus is our King and that we love Him and want to obey Him.  He, God. is a powerful King who protects those who live under His rule and obey Him.  It would be heaven if we had holy people in authority in the Church and in government with whom we could obey and work for the good of society.  We could use all the money to build beautiful churches, we could have free Catholic schools, hospitals, orphanages, libraries, retreat houses, parks and homes.

Our society under secular and masonic leaders is not working.  We live in the illusion that we live under democratic government.  No, the two parties are just two big shows.  They both are run by the people behind the scenes.  We get all excited to try to elect Romney, because he is the lesser of two evils.  He is the one who made government medical care mandatory in Massachusetts.  Look what ‘Justice’ Roberts did in the Supreme Court.

When the French Revolution armies stormed the Bastille in July 14, 1789, they found 7 people, 4 forgers, 2 mad men and 1 pedophile.  Under this ‘great Democratic system’ we have millions of people in prisons here in the United States.

Long Live Christ The King.  Que Viva Cristo Rey.
