Revolution and Counter-Revolution

March of Hope Kindle

This post is an excerpt from my book Seek First the Kingdom – The March of Hope. Click above for a paperback version. Click here for Kindle.

You may recall from Chapter One in this book that I made the promise that I would not attempt to water down my Catholicism nor try to make it “ok” for those who were not of the Catholic mind. If you are one of those to whom I targeted that promise, you may wish to strap yourselves down for this final chapter. It is unlikely that I will be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in inter-faith dialogue for what I have to tell you here. But, I have done nothing from The Freedom Dance forward through The March of Hope other than develop for you the most honest and sincere description of my spiritual journey, and I have one final piece left. With some hesitation then, yet with sincere charity in my heart for those not of the Catholic mindset, I write this final and very significant element of that journey. My soul will not rest if I do otherwise.

The book Revolution and Counter-Revolution referenced in the title of this chapter and footnoted below is a rather obscure but very powerful little treatise by a late Catholic theologian from Brazil. I have been fascinated by it since the time I first read it many years ago. This book brilliantly summarizes, in faithful obedience to the doctrines of the Church, the root cause of the negative influences at work in our world and in a manner I have never before seen presented in any channel of communication. It also eloquently states the proposed solution such that we may begin arming ourselves with proper philosophy that will lead to a life-affirming culture. Like a doctor who discovers the very root cause of a deadly physical disease, Plinio Correa de Oliveira isolates the very spiritual virus threatening us and that by examining, will allow us to bring a fresh and life giving antidote to the world!

It was in this little book that I first came across the notion that what we are experiencing in the world today is nothing more than the on-going conflagration of a single, unified, Revolution through time, particularly the last five centuries, against the Church, humanity, and even God himself that began with the egregious disaster called the Protestant Reformation and carried forth with thunderous fury into the French Revolution, and ultimately bore the fruit of institutional, state managed atheism in 20th century communism.

From the initial rebellion through Protestantism against obedience to proper Church authority, as represented by the ecclesiastical hierarchy, this virus has germinated into a full blown societal skepticism against any “objective” moral authority and has further declined into the disease of moral and religious relativity that is ruining Western civilization today. The old and sure faith of Christendom in the Middle Ages has been cast aside in favor of the intoxicating philosophies of the Revolution with its radical individualism and the “me and God alone (as only I can define God for me) in whatever affirms me” mentality. This disease is the very root cause of our culture’s demise into deadly pluralism and an enthusiasm for death.

 From this simple but rich perspective, one may put together a puzzle whereby all the pieces of history that before seemed so confusing, now lay on the table before us in a remarkable but terrifying picture.

The Protestant Revolution has run its course. Its influence on society has been a disaster for Western civilization. The same prideful spirit that refused to bow before Rome in the 16th century chased priests to their death in the French Revolution of the 18th century. That same spirit, “empowered” by “freedom” from institutional religion brought “logical” “free-thinkers” in philosophy into the complete rejection of God through the institutional regimes of 20th century atheistic communism. This is one Revolution and is led by One Personal Force that has rebelled against God from the earliest moments of creation. This being sought and seeks the destruction of the work of Jesus Christ. He will be thrown into the great pit by our King and Lord at the end of time. Amen.

Whereas Protestantism, for some well meaning revolutionaries, sought to free men from a supposed institutional slavery to the Church, it still encouraged society as a whole over time to question Sacred Tradition, the teaching authority of Christ’s Church, and the Truths of God’s revelation and ran straightway in a logical pattern through the bloody French Revolution and into institutional communism in the 20th century.

This is what happens when mankind attempts to “free” itself from God. It always leads from life to true self-inflicted slavery. The other march, that march from Protestantism into 20th century communism is a replication of the rebellion of man against God in the Garden of Eden so long ago. Do you still think the story of Adam and Eve to be a fairy tale? We are living in the hell of the most recent version of it right now. I told you the first few chapters of the book of Genesis have all we need to understand the world, even the world of today.

What, then, is the essence of this Revolution? What is the basic driving force of it? You might recognize it as one of the key warnings, one of those crevices in which I warned we might fall on the March of Hope if we are not careful:

“The most powerful driving force of the Revolution is in the disordered tendencies. For this reason, the Revolution has been compared to a typhoon, an earthquake, a cyclone, the unleashed forces of nature being material images of the unbridled passions of man.”[1]

“This inversion-the right to think, feel, and do everything the unrestrained passions demand – is the essence of liberalism…it is solely interested in freedom for evil, it…restricts freedom of the good as much as possible.”[2]

Yes, the Revolution is the great attempt to bring a constant and ever destructive chaos that always opposes goodness into our lives and societies through the rebellious and disordered passions of man. Does this sound familiar? Does it sound like our culture today with twenty four hour noise, vulgarity, rudeness, and shamelessness? The Revolution is disorder my friend. And if you feel completely torn apart and lacking unity in our world today, then you are feeling the effects of the Revolution. This is what the Revolution calls “freedom,” freedom to engage in any immoral activity one desires, to be left alone to “be me” in self worship and in complete rebellion against God’s commandments.

What, then, is the solution? It is quite simple. It is a Counter-Revolution:

“If the Revolution is disorder, the Counter-Revolution is the restoration of order. And by order we mean the peace of Christ in the Reign of Christ, that is, Christian civilization, austere and hierarchical, fundamentally sacral, anti-egalitarian, and anti-liberal.”[3]

You may be connecting now The March of Hope with the theme of cultural recovery through order in the Counter-Revolution that is Catholic spirituality. What I have come to see as I journey through time and space with my saintly friends is that our unity, soul and body, depends on the correct ordering of our values. This leads to unity in objectives and a vibrant, living personal life and from there a life giving culture if only it is founded on that one dominant principle which leads to Order.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The spirit of Order is that of Jesus Christ. The March of Hope is about the correct order of affairs; it is about Jesus and his saving grace, authority, and laws first; then the Holy Mother of God as the Queen, Mediatrix of grace, and our Mother; and then to the brotherhood of man in the communion of saints as a glorious, eternal, hierarchical aristocracy, kingdom, and family for which we sacrifice our lives to obtain!

This is the Sacred Tradition of the Church passed onto us for two thousand years. This is the path of our Fathers. This is the March of Hope and The Freedom Dance on the trail of the Dogmatic Creed of Roman Catholicism. This is the grand view that I have been led to see.

The Kingdom to which I have been leading you is an aristocracy, not a democracy. This Kingdom has a King and a Queen. We know Jesus to be King! It is to him that all rulers, indeed all people, will kneel, and there is no other. This Kingdom, the view of which I see on that great hillside, that mountain top with Joan of Arc and Thérèse, is a kingdom of peace, order, personal and community fulfillment; it is a Christian Kingdom. And it is the Kingdom which has been prepared for you for all of eternity.

There is no other. Well, there actually is one other. But, “let’s not go there”!

It is time for the revival and dominance of Catholic culture. It is time to bring the Kingdom of God down from the very heavens.

It is time to March in Hope for the Counter-Revolution!

Le privilège du blanc for Princess Charlene of Monaco

Template 1

As a follow up to the post and link I shared on The Catholic faith in the life of the Princess of Monaco, I would like to share the following from the same source on why Princess Charlene wore white when meeting with the Pope.

An excerpt:

She is one of seven women in the world that has been given “the privilege of the white” – or the ability to wear white when meeting with the pope.

Called le privilège du blanc in French or il privilegio del biacno in Italian, the special tradition is extended solely to designated Catholic queens and princesses and is usually reserved for important events at the Vatican like private audiences, canonizations, beatifications and special masses.

The Catholic faith in the life of the Princess of Monaco

Template 1

I am attaching the following link to a beautiful story about the conversion and faith of Monaco’s Catholic Princess Charlene.

An excerpt:

“Catholicism is the state religion [in Monaco]. But for me, it represents much more. The values of this religion profoundly touch me and correspond perfectly to my spirit.”

“In January 2013, Prince Albert took me to the Vatican to present me to Pope Benedict XVI, just as Prince Rainier did with Grace Kelly and Pius XII,” she recalled, adding, “that experience was extremely intense and moving for me.”

The Republic vs. The Catholic Monarchy: The Will of the People vs. The Will of God

Template 1

“In the Legislative Assembly, the more violent revolutionaries had congregated, at first simply by chance, on the higher benches to the left of the president’s chair, from which they became known as “the Left” or “the Mountain.” (The persistence to this day of the former term, along with its opposite, “The Right,” is a forceful reminder of how much the legacy of the French Revolution is still with us.) Perhaps in a feeble attempt to diffuse political labels and hatreds, when the National Convention met, the president’s chair had been set up on the opposite side of the Riding School, so the high benches where the radicals had set were now on his right. But they held resolutely to their benches, and so marked had the political connotation of the term “the Left” already become that it did not matter to anyone that the Left in the National Convention was now physically on the right. The deputies opposite them were the Girondins, who at first had been the radicals, and were quite uncomfortable with their new role as conservatives. Those in between, because their seats were lower down, were known as “the Plain.” As they skulked lower and lower with the passing months in an increasingly desperate effort to keep out of sight and trouble, some wits began calling them ‘the Marsh.’ “

So shifted The Will of the People during the French Revolution. Rather, one might say, so shifted The Dictatorship of The People through The People’s representatives during the French Revolution. For “The People” were now free of their Monarch and were duly “represented” by supposed leaders proclaiming Liberty, Fraternity, and Equality! Those leaders of The People knew what The People needed and implemented their program through one of the most unmerciful dictatorial regimes in history. Poor Louis XVI could not have even imagined using his Monarchical powers to demonstrate such totalitarian control as did The People after they came to power. No wonder Lenin, more than a century later, so admired the French Revolutionaries. He was, as well, all about The People. You might recall that in both revolutions, the French and the Russian, The People executed their respective Monarchs (more or less with their families) in favor of more “free” Republics.

What was once considered revolutionary (liberal, in modern jargon) in the French scheme had come to be viewed over time as conservative. The median continued to move leftward. Radical became more leftward radical, while conservative shifted left and became… well… more leftward radical. Eventually, the Girondins, those formerly considered heroically revolutionary, had to run for the hills for now being too conservative as those further to the left assumed more control of the apparatus that would eventually yield The Reign of Terror. This Reign (as distinct from the much kinder Reign of their former Catholic King) came complete with the almost non-stop, up and down rhythm of guillotines for the non-revolutionary People, including, and especially, those loyal to the Catholic Church and the ancien régime. The revolutionaries, having severed themselves from their Catholic King and Queen (Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette), or, more literally, having severed the heads of their Catholic King and Queen, had now set The People free. The Church with her Monarchs would no longer tell The People what is right and what is wrong. The People will be free to determine their own course.

Their freedom, however, was merely a freedom to drift into darkness in the same manner that a boat tied to an anchor for safe-keeping is “freed” during a storm to drift away, lost on the high seas to perish (in a shipwreck of “democratic” totalitarianism). For this is the historical record of The People every time they try to “free” themselves from God (as represented through His Church), be that in the vulgar and grotesque Sixties Revolution in America, the early 20th century Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the 18th century French Revolution, the 16th century Protestant Revolution, or even all the way back to the Adam and Eve Revolution at the dawn of mankind.

“Freedom,” by turning the authentic order of God on its head such that morality, i.e., determining what is right and what is wrong, is dictated by “the Will of the People” from below rather than by God from above, leads to anarchy and then to slavery. No wonder God told Adam and Eve that they were free to eat of any of the trees in the garden except for the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. For, God, and God alone, establishes the authentic order for what is right and what is wrong. Only by setting ourselves firmly in that Divine Order do we then find our Freedom “to eat of the fruits of all the other trees in the Garden.”

Therein is the issue and the subtle but distinct point of separation between the Catholic Monarchy and the Democratic Republic. Note that I am not saying, between the Catholic Monarchy and Democracy, for there is no reason that the Monarchy cannot hold dear to itself robust democracies at the state and local level. To frame the issue as “Monarchy vs. Democracy” as so many do, is to frame it poorly if not completely incorrectly. Democracy can exist in both models. The issue has to do not with “Monarchy vs. Democracy” but with “the Will of God vs. the Will of the People” as defined by the proper order of things. This is fundamentally important. As we have seen in our historical example, missing the proper order of things can lead one to a life under tyranny, if one is not ultimately relieved from it all by the guillotine in the hands of The People.

The issue between the Monarchy and the Republic, then, is one of authentic order, not one of democratic freedom. This is the arch-issue that has plagued mankind in its rebellious spirit from the moment we began our walk in the Garden. God establishes what is right and what is wrong (“You may eat of any of the trees in the Garden, except for the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”). Within that scheme, which comes to us from the Will of God above and not from The Will of the People below, we find our true democratic freedoms (“You are free to eat of any of the trees, except…”). The Catholic Monarchy most closely adheres to this authentic order by establishing God’s law (as known infallibly through His Church in matters of faith and morals) from the top down, which allows for the proper development of societal norms and a life-giving culture. Within those boundaries, we are free to exercise our People’s Will joyfully in the rest of the Garden where God blesses us.

1512818_647089545353524_1184726159_n

The Republic, on the other hand, with its Will of the People, decides that, like the falling Adam and Eve, it will eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Will of the People will become its own god. Abortion is fine because that is “the Will of the People.” Homosexuality and same sex “marriage” is fine because defining it such is “the Will of the People.” Shutting down religious organizations or otherwise telling them how they must change their beliefs in order to accommodate “The Will of the People” is fine because that is, well, “the Will of the People.” Never mind God.

According to the Will of the People in a Republic, God is whoever we wish him to be, and he supports whatever we choose because that is the “Will of the People.” Thus, in the Republic, God obeys the Will of the People rather than the other way around. That, my friends, is not an authentic order. It is disorder. Is it any wonder that Republics tend to fall into disordered tyranny?

The Catholic Monarchy, though as subject to illicit and disordered tendencies in the individual Monarchs as in any human being, is, however, fundamentally and objectively better structured to secure the authentic order of freedom, that of God (through His authoritatively teaching Church) deciding what is right and what is wrong, and then leaving us “in the garden” (rather than being escorted out) to enjoy our democratic freedoms (of all the trees, except…) within that framework. We must first establish The Will of God as a higher authority than the Will of the People. There we will find true freedom.

This is the rub between the Monarchy and the Republic. There is where the Republic generally fails. It fails in fulfilling exactly its purpose for which it supposedly exists, that is, to make us free. Just ask the victims of the hippie generation, of the Bolshevik Revolution, of the French Republic, of the Protestant Revolution, and even of the Adam and Eve Revolution.

You might fairly retort that I should ask the victims of the inquisition about my Catholic Monarchical model; yet, I will answer that “inquisition” is clearly as much a secular tool as a religious one and that our historical examples demonstrate that it is far more dangerous in the hands of seculars than churchmen. The Spanish Inquisition killed a few thousand through its most violent ten years, while the French anti-Gods sent more than 40,000 to the chopping block in Paris alone. We will not even mention Lenin, whose model took the murderous secular inquisition to astonishing new levels.

I fondly remember my youthful days on the High Plains in the great state of Oklahoma. The dogmas of the Republic I learned made absolute sense at the time. The reason they made sense is “The People” in our area were generally the most solid, trustworthy, God-fearing, salt of the earth folk anywhere in the country. It was easy for me to believe that the Will of the People was effectively the same as the Will of God because most of these farmers, ranchers, small business owners, and teachers were, in fact, holding fast to the authentic order or things.

However, I did not realize at that time how precarious, shifting, and amorphous was the general Will of the People. Initially naive, I ultimately realized that in the great Republic, where the Constitution was supposedly the safe-guard of the People, the Constitution itself was subject to The People, and The People are capable of changing their mood on any given day. I never imagined at that time that a new day would come about where that shifting mood would reveal such an anti-God, secular sentiment as we are witnessing today in America. Yes, that day has changed. It has changed in a big way. The Will of the People is thoroughly corrupted. The People are eating once again from that forbidden tree.

What was it again that Our Savior told us to pray? “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…” In America, we have our own version: “The People’s Kingdom come, The People’s will be done, in heaven as on earth…”

Things are disordered in the Republic. It is time to restructure our government to a Catholic Monarchy such that we agree to leave that one tree alone. Then, and only then, will we be truly free to enjoy the fruits of all the other trees in the Garden.

Ten reasons why we should establish a Catholic Monarchy for America

Template 1

The Catholic Monarchy is our only lasting hope of saving the United States of America.

The proposition above is not something you would ever expect to hear in political discussions or the media. There are two reasons for this. The first is that our forefathers founded America on the principles of representative Democratic Republicanism whereby The Constitution would replace The Church as the balance of power between The People and The State. The second is that the elite financiers and liberal Revolutionaries currently under-mining the United States of America do not want you to contemplate it for fear that you will take hold of it and destroy their empire and all of their Satanic Masonic plans with it. You would be free under the Monarchy, and they simply will not allow that to happen.

The first reason above is why I do not refer to “restoring” America, for “restoring” would imply that it is feasible to go back to a free, constitutionally based representative Democratic Republic. I refer to “saving” America, for this is where we need to focus our energies. One cannot save the country by restoring the very system that led to her demise. Saving her requires a new system, one built on more authentic and durable principles. The most authentic and durable system of government will necessarily be founded on a formal recognition of the Social Kingship of Christ, for there is no other name in the universe by which we are saved, either individually or collectively. The Catholic Monarchy is the optimal form to bring about that recognition, whereby Jesus Christ has the preeminent right to determine the laws and influence the culture of the land. The Monarchy most resembles the governmental form of Heaven itself where Christ is King of Kings.

tumblr_nmbg08OeHK1u58ssuo1_400

Alas, however, the average citizen of the United States does not consider this line of reasoning to be viable. Sadly, nor does the average Catholic in the pew find it so. This is because we have falsely believed that the democratic, constitutional republic, in principle and in fact, would lead us to the highest level of freedom and happiness. We have falsely believed that Monarchies were dictatorships that led to diminished freedoms. We have falsely believed that “separation of Church and State” was the high road to freedom and one even desired for us by God Himself. As the result of these errors, precious few take the Catholic Monarchy seriously as a solution to our modern crisis in America. Rather than “save” America, the vast majority will lurch out of habit toward the idea of “restoring” her to her constitutional republican foundation. This is equivalent to trying to “restore” an alcoholic to moderate drinking habits. Only a new paradigm will restore the alcoholic, not the “restoration” of the old.

The idea of a Catholic Monarchy for the United States might begin to be persuasive once one comes to terms with the near certainty that America has crossed a line in her Democratic Republicanism beyond which there is no return. The viability of a Catholic Monarchy for the United States becomes even more thought provoking and realistically acceptable when one understands the nature of the Revolutionary movement mentioned in the second reason above. The Revolution, meaning THE Revolution by Satan against the most Holy Trinity, began before the dawn of time and has been the earmark of Satanic spiritual and temporal forces bent on destroying human beings since man began to walk the earth (you might recall the story of Adam and Eve, whereby God has told us that this is the case).

genesis-3-serpent-adam-eve-angel-flame-sword-big

In modern (roughly the past 500 years) history, though, this act of rebellion against God and His visible, institutional Church based in Rome has utilized very predictable spiritual warfare tactics through a handful of Revolutions, each Revolution proclaiming to “free” mankind, meaning, always,  a false “freedom” from obedience owed to God. These Revolutions against God are, in chronological order, the Protestant, “Enlightenment,” American, French, Bolshevik, and, more recently, the “Sixties.” The outcome of the latter in America has been the modern bloodthirsty, Satanic secularism that seeks to destroy our country and our souls without mercy. It is this last agenda that is so dear to the hearts of the elite financiers and revolutionaries.

Therefore, we seem to have crossed the line. The destructive anti-God Revolutionary virus is in full force in America. It is in full force because The People themselves, the very ones whom the Constitution enshrines in power, have spoken “their will.” Their voice demonstrates that the Will of the People is thoroughly corrupted by the Satanic spiritual forces of the Revolution. This leaves us with the predictable outcome, using the consistent progress and ultimate outcomes of the previous Revolutions as our guide, of a dictatorial tyranny in our future. The Will of the People has shown itself as no more than The Dictatorship of The People, in much the same fashion as defined by Lenin in the Bolshevik Revolution and Robespierre in the French (the later “Lennon” in the Sixties revolution was merely the voice proclaiming the death of the soul, “and no religion, too” – the ultimate aim of the Revolution).

ACU_HR_HelixGuillotine_E3_140609_11amPST

To “save” America, then, since restoring her is not possible with such a corrupted Will of the People, we must appeal to a higher authority than The People. We must, as was so successfully (generally speaking) done for 1,000 years through the early and mid-Middle Ages (Feudal era), appeal to the Church as the ultimate authority for morality, social organization, and cultural identity, as the Church is immune by the power of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit from error in faith and morals. Not even Pope Alexander VI during the Renaissance nor child-abusing Priests of the modern era have been able to diminish the teaching authority of the Church or to force Christ to re-assess His promise to be with His Bride to the end of time. The Will of God through His Church, and not The Will of the People in a democratic representative republic, is the only sure Rock upon which to build a free, edifying, life-giving culture. This is the essence of the Social Kingship of Christ.

JOA coronation radiance

So, with the above in mind, and with love for America as our driving motivation, I present the reasons below that we should consider the Catholic Monarchy as the next, and most optimal, form of government for the United States:

1) The Church, not a constitutional democratic republic, is God’s design for the salvation, happiness, freedom, and unity of the world, both individually and collectively. The Will of God is the first priority and the wellspring of a proper hierarchy of values. Once we establish the Will of God as the societal and cultural norm, THEN, within that framework, the Will of the People can democratically make authentic progress. We know the Will of God through the Catholic Church as decreed by Jesus Christ, Who is the only person ever to walk the face of the earth to rise from the dead to prove His claims. If ever you want to follow someone’s Church, it is the Church of Jesus Christ. Hinduism is rich in color but hideously depressive and satanic in theology and philosophy. Buddha spent his entire life trying to solve a Hindu-istic problem that does not even exist (the pain of reincarnation). Confucius developed a wonderful set of social norms to govern society (the closest in the East to Christian norms), but feared being too close to the afterlife. Mohammed is still dead and in the ground. The Church is the new Jewish Israel, the City of God and the New Jerusalem. If we are going to use any religion as a guidepost for God’s will, it must be the true one based in the risen Jesus Christ through His Church.

2) What people call the “Christian” cultural roots of America is simply a carry-over of Middle Ages Catholic civilization, despite the fact that the Founding Fathers were erroneously “freeing” us from the old Monarchies whereby the Monarch was the right arm of the Church. “Restoring” America to her cultural roots, if you insist on some sort of “restoration,” is really to restore her to her Catholic inheritance. Why not admit that The Constitution and The Will of The People failed to make any progress on the old Monarchical form and simply go back to the old Monarchical form? Time does not dictate progress. Just because we live centuries after the old Monarchies does not mean that we have made progress during that time. The past 500 years of “Revolutions” have been nothing more than a destructive re-action against the progress of the previous Catholic civilization. A speeding car heading for a cliff is “progressing” through time and space toward the cliff. As Chesterton pointed out, Thursday is not superior to Wednesday just because Thursday comes later in the week.

3) The Catholic Monarchy, built on the feudal model whereby Christian Kings and Queens are under the moral authority of the Church and thereby checked in their totalitarian tendencies, and are suzerains over relatively independent territories, will be the safe guard for local democratic self-determination. The King and Queen will maintain the cultural and moral norms governing society and will be the face of the nation in international diplomacy. Democracy, now guided by the Church through laws and cultural norms consistent with Christ’s teachings, would flourish at the state and local level under the protection of the Monarch.

4) The Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of religious freedom (“with due limits” as interpreted in accordance with the long line of Popes in the pre-conciliar Church).

5) The Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of free speech and assembly (“with due limits” as mentioned above).

6) The Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of the right to private ownership of property and against the multi-national corporations and the One World economy.

7) The Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of free enterprise that dovetails with the right of private ownership (and therefore does not necessarily guarantee the right of a foreign owned or foreign-minded multi-national to take property from the local population).

8) The Catholic Monarchy will promote, protect, and guarantee a life giving culture with edifying arts, entertainment, and language.

9) The Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of the principles of subsidiarity that protect families and local social units from unreasonable encroachment by higher state and federal authorities.

10) A Divine Right Aristocracy of inheritance, whereby birth determines a King or Queen rather than political pandering and the influence of money, will be the protector and guarantor of the Monarchical form. Money cannot influence God in creating a King or Queen.

Divine Right Monarchy.jpg

Finally, how is it that the Catholic Monarchy will be the protector and guarantor of these rights and principles? It is because we will have an optimal relationship between Church and State as it existed in the days of ancient Christendom. Separation of Church and State in the modern Republic is nothing more than a subjugation of Church to the State (therefore making the Church powerless and irrelevant). An authentic relationship between Church and State exists when the independent institutional Church holds moral authority over a Monarch. Monarchs who desire totalitarian control will face a Church beyond their control. Ask Napoleon, Louis XIV, or any other rebellious-minded King through the history of Christendom how difficult the Church can be on a totalitarian! Even they had to yield to a great degree before the independent Church. The Church is not oppressive on The People. The Church, with The People, is oppressive on totalitarian-minded Monarchs.
