“The migration of nations!” Queen St. Clotilda, the spiritual mother of the counterrevolution

Template 1

“The migration of nations! – What a medley of images this word calls up in our mind. It carries us back to the sunset of the old civilization; we rest for a while in the twilight, then grope about in the night, and emerge at last into the dawn – grey, indistinct, undefined – of a new social order.” ~ Fr. John Laux, Church History

Certainly, the above quote seems poignant for our times; though, it refers to the barbarian invasions of the 5th and 6th centuries roughly one thousand five hundred years ago. Just as the old Roman Empire crumbled exteriorly after years of internal moral decay, so is our empire called Western Civilization crumbling after an astonishing collapse in morality. The contemporary spiritual, social, and cultural situation in America and the West is not significantly different from that of post-barbarian Europe.

“When the last wave of the barbarian invasion had spend its force, the face of Europe had been transformed. Independent Germanic kingdoms had been established on the ruins of the Roman Empire, and there was everywhere a bewildering mixture of races, institutions, and religions.” ~ Fr. John Laux, Church History

The situation for true Christianity, the fullness of which resides in the only institution founded personally and authoritatively by Jesus Christ before His passion, crucifixion, and resurrection – the Catholic Church – is as perilous now as it was then. Just as in modern America, “Christian” rulers are often Protestant, Evangelical, or otherwise “spiritual but not religious,” the Goths, Vandals, Burgundians, and Lombards rolling over Europe were mostly either pagan or heretical Arian Christians rather than true Christian and Catholic. The saving grace for Christianity in temporal affairs and the seed of what eventually would become Christendom was the conversion to Catholicism of the still pagan Franks through the baptism of King Clovis in 496 AD. Our Lord and Our Lady accomplished this work of Divine Providence through Queen Saint Clotilda, the graceful wife of Clovis. Through her influence, Clovis converted  to Catholicism and with him all of the Frankish kingdom. True Catholic Christianity now held a beachhead on mainland Europe through the Franks and by the prayers and example their saintly Queen.

“In 493 the Frankish king Clovis married Clotilda, a Burgundian princess, who, though of Arian parentage, was herself a devout Catholic. It was mainly due to her example, her admonitions and her prayers that Clovis embraced Christianity in spite of various attempts made by his Arian neighbors to win him over to their heresy. With three thousand of his warriors he was baptized on Christmas day in the year 496 by St. Remigius, bishop of Rheims. The bulk of the nation followed the example of their leader.” ~ Fr. John Laux, Church History

Similarly, Christian civilization finds itself in the 21st century facing the same threat and needing the same remedy as it did in the 5th and 6th centuries. Our modern barbarian invasion began in the 16th century with the Protestant Revolution which brought a new, heretical form of Christianity to the fore of cultural and political power. Mutated forms of this heresy have led to our bewildering array of barbaric contemporary beliefs and institutions, as witnessed by their progress through the Satanic French Revolution, the equally Satanic Bolshevik Revolution, and the  equally Satanic Sixties Hippie Revolution. Having been torn asunder and weakened spiritually and culturally by the initial waves, we are now threatened with complete desolation by the ever-ready ancient battering ram, the most insidious barbaric religious and political mutation of all, Islam, with like effect as ancient Europe was threatened by the terrible Lombards in 568.

“The invasion of the Lombards (568) was the last, but in many respects also the most tremendous, scourge with which the fair provinces of Italy were visited. It was the most terrible, as Newman remarks, because it was the last; because the Visigoth and the Hun and the Vandal and the Herulian and the Ostrogoth and the Byzantine had devastated the land before him, the Lombard could in so short a time make the desolation so complete.” ~ Fr. John Laux, Church History

We are so threatened with complete desolation today by the Muslim because the revolutionary Protestant, the spiritually carcinogenic “spiritual but not religious,” and the totalitarian secular atheist have devastated the land before him. The Muslim is now able to draw the sword for the final blow. Just as ancient Europe was weakened by heretical Arianism under the false pretense of “Christian,” we are weakened by heretical Protestantism, Evangelicalism, and “spiritual but not religious” heresies. True Christianity – the Catholic Church – needs a beachhead today in our society, culture, and political structure just as it needed that Catholic, Frankish beachhead centuries ago.

Clovis-and-Clotilde

The Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America aims to be one part of that beachhead, even if it is a very small part. Our spiritual mother, foundress, and patroness is St. Clotilda. Our Lord initiated France’s mission and vocation as “The Eldest Daughter of the Church” through her saintly piety. Though her father was Arian, St. Clotilda’s Catholic mother instilled in her daughter a faithful Christian spirit as a barbarian Burgundian Princess at a time when the old was passing away, and no one knew what was ahead.  Later, as the Queen of the Franks, St. Clotilda brought an entire people to the true faith.

“All about Clotilda, as she grew from infancy to girlhood, the old world was crashing down; she, a barbarian princess, belonged to the new one, whatever it might be. Yet the faith that burned in her was the faith of Perpetua, of Cecilia, of Jerome’s Paula – all from the greatest families of Rome, who would have recognized Clotilda instantly as their sister in spirit.” ~ Warren H. Carroll, The Building of Christendom

St. Clotilda suffered much for many years after the death of King Clovis. Her children, the heirs to the new Catholic Kingdom, brought her only misery. Short of a personal divine revelation (of which there is no record or indication), she would have had no way to know during the thirty-four years she carried her cross as a widow that God would use her as the seed of what would become Christendom. Like Queen St. Clotilda, we must suffer with royal hearts in an age of vulgar, secular, egalitarian republicanism knowing that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, the Master of history, and He through Whom all things were created. We might never see the fruits of our efforts, but like St. Clotilda, we will offer our crosses to the most Holy and Immaculate Virgin Mary and through her to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the Kingdom of God “on earth as it is in Heaven.” If St. Clotilda gave birth to Catholic France, then surely, by the grace of God, she will give spiritual birth to the renaissance of Catholic France. Queen St. Clotilda will watch over us with motherly concern.

saint_clotilde_by_pinklady92-d4qfko9

Through her powerful intercession and royal, paternal care, we will defend the Catholic Church, as did her husband King Clovis. As did the Franks for Christendom over the centuries, we will form the seed for the resurrection of the coming, newly energized Catholic civilization. We seek the Renaissance of the Kingdom of Catholic France, the restoration of the French Catholic Monarchy, the restoration of Catholic Monarchies in general, and even the establishment of a Catholic Monarchy in the United States.

Queen St. Clotilda, with Ste. Jehanne d’Arc, Ste. Thérèse de Lisieux, and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven and earth, pray for us!

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!

41wV3IvlOxL._SX388_BO1,204,203,200_

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.

tumblr_nmbg08OeHK1u58ssuo1_400

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.

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

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.

large-1

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!

Overview of the CRAA

Template 1

The Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America (CRAA) is a contemplative based initiative dedicated to the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Social Kingship of Christ through the Catholic Monarchy and in the friendship and sisterly care of Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus. The CRAA is inspired directly by the Armée Catholique et Royale, an 18th century counterrevolutionary movement from the Vendée/Bocage region of western France during the French Revolution.

The CRAA is the spiritual counterrevolutionary arm of the The Dove and Rose, which is a sister initiative devoted to Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus that seeks to help us grow in sanctifying grace. Together, the CRAA and the Dove and Rose Devotees seek to expand the Kingdom of God on earth (the seed of which is the Catholic Church), where Jesus Christ is worshiped and honored as our mighty King, the most holy and immaculate Virgin Mary is rightfully honored as our glorious Queen, and the Saints are honored as our noble sisters and brothers. Is this not what we were taught to pray by our Master? “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

The “heart” of the CRAA is a desire to work in the friendship and sisterly care of Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus for the Social Kingship of Christ and the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary through a Catholic Monarchy.  We see ourselves as fulfilling the noble objective of the Militia of the Immaculata of St. Maximilian Kolbe (though the CRAA itself has no association with the MI), particularly through an emphasis on devotion to the Renaissance of Catholic France, the restoration of the French Catholic Monarchy along with all Catholic Monarchies of Christendom, and even the establishment of a Catholic Monarchy in the United States.

The Kingdom we love, defend, and for which we must be prepared to die

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is this Kingdom that we desire with all of our hearts. It is this Kingdom that is our true home. It is this Kingdom that we seek to defend to our death in the face of a militant anti-God secularism which is seeking to destroy God’s Kingdom on earth through an  unholy alliance with both Eastern  New Age and an ever dissipating wave of Protestantism now calling itself, after five centuries of rebellion against God’s Church, “spiritual but not religious.” The Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America would defend the glory that is the Catholic Kingdom against all of these sublimely coordinated evils in the same spirit as did the Vendéan Counterrevolutionaries against the diabolical French Republic during the Revolution.

We could likewise use the analogy of Joan of Arc’s efforts in the Hundred Years War. The spirit of the CRAA, and we believe also that of the 18th century Armée Catholique et Royale before us, is that same one from the 15th century whereby Joan of Arc defended the true Kingdom of France in the name of Jesus as true Monarch (with Charles VII being the earthly steward) against the usurping and unjust alliance between England and French Burgundy. Indeed this spirit of defending the glory of the Kingdom goes back to the first Apostles of Christ, and, we could even say, to the beginning of time itself. “I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shall lie in wait for her heel.” (Gen 3:15, Douay-Rheims).

This war between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of the evil one spans the entire history of the created order. “And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Rev 12:1, Douay-Rheims). “And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev 12:17, Douay-Rheims). The spirit of the CRAA would be that of the woman, the holy Mother of God, Immaculate in Conception (Luke 1:28, Rev 12:14) with her seed, Jesus Christ, true God and true man, and His followers who are “of her seed” and who “have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” The other spirit, that of the satanic army opposing our most Holy Queen in heaven, runs deeply today in our culture through the philosophies of militant, anti-God secularism, New Age, and “Spiritual but not Religious” rebellion against the authentic moral order. That same vulgar spirit has co-opted not only our culture but the political process as well.

This is not about establishing a “kingdom of this world” (which Jesus specifically stated He had not come to do) but about establishing “God’s Kingdom on earth,” a subtle but crucial point of differentiation and is that for which Jesus did instruct us to pray. This Kingdom will reign eternally after earth disappears; yet, we are called to do our part for that Kingdom while we are here. The work for the Kingdom is the point of our existence. We are not here to amuse ourselves in luxury with the newest technologies and bawdy television shows, blending in with secular society, while simply sharing “our personal views” with others in a superficially relativistic manner. To the contrary, we are called as Catholic witnesses, even martyrs, to fight the forces of darkness. Rise from your slumber Catholic warrior.

To paraphrase GK Chesterton, the CRAA would fight for love of what is behind it rather than out of any hatred for what is before it. As Catholic Crusaders for the glory of the Kingdom and for our Divine King and our most honorable, Immaculate Queen, we know that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual powers of darkness. We are driven by love for our fellow man, for we hope that all men might partake of this Kingdom by the grace of our Savior.

All would be under the co-patronage of the glorious Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux for the honor of Mary most holy, our beloved Queen and for her Son, Jesus Christ, Who is true God and true man, our Divine King, and the only Savior of the human race.

Our inspiration, the “Armée Catholique et Royale” fighting the French Revolutionary Republic

12339569_10208448984410088_8434871695801565053_o

The Armée Catholique et Royale was a popular uprising by the peasant class to oppose the evils of the Revolution, those evils including the ruthless, bloody suppression of the Catholic Church and even the entirety of Christian tradition with it. The Counterrevolutionaries were known as “Chouans” or, in English, “Royalists” who supported the one thousand year old French Catholic Monarchy embodied at that time in Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, the most Christian Monarchs of France (and later in the boy King Louis XVII, the son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette who was imprisoned and never ruled). They were from a region heavily influenced a lifetime earlier by the missionary zeal of St. Louis de Montfort and his teachings on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin. There can be little doubt that their strong love for our holy Queen in heaven and for her Son in His Eucharist were what drove their noble Crusade against the insanity of militant, unmerciful secularism.

The Vendéan Chouans wanted their Church, their King and Queen, and the entirety of their Catholic Faith. The merciless and wild-eyed Republican totalitarians wanted to be “free” of the Church and those traditions, and they were bent on forcing the entire population to be “free” as well (whether they wanted to or not!). The guillotine was used obsessively and unmercifully to eliminate these “enemies of Liberty.”

As a result, the Vendéans died heroically fighting the Republic. The Republic eventually massacred over 300,000 Vendéans in a brutal suppression, including women and children (even executing women who held their children in their arms) in what some historians consider to be the first state sponsored genocide in modern history. The Republic committed these crimes in the name of “liberty, equality, and brotherhood.” So it typically goes when mankind looks to build its own kingdom of man in opposition to the Kingdom of God. Those who wish to be “free” from God will kill, without mercy, and in the name of “freedom” and “rights,” those religious souls who oppose them.

Current situation, the American Republic has fallen victim to the spiritual anarchy of the “Revolution” against God

1454856_656023337782727_128167491_n

The Republic of the United States is following the same course, though more slowly, as did the blasphemous French Revolution. The latter can actually be seen as a very time-compressed demonstration of where these Democratic Republican forms of government ultimately run, which is toward an endlessly unstable dictatorship by the most powerful group on any given day in a naturally developing pluralistic system. The “will of the people” is a mere abstract principle that is commonly usurped in practicality by powerful minority interests. A hypothetical (though not necessarily hypothetical in America) example would be that a country’s population would favor by majority, say, the elimination or severe restriction of abortion while powerful, pluralistic, elitist minority alliances use the legal system to continue the execution of children as if by guillotine. The “will of the people” is usurped by the “will of the elite.” This is the true nature of Democratic Republics.

However, the “will of the people” itself is an insufficient and most capricious principle to exalt. It is especially blasphemous to elevate in the face of God and His Divine Will. Are we to believe that God is pleased that the “will of the people” (or that of a powerful minority) chooses the killing of children through abortion “rights”? Is God pleased that the “will of the people” chooses to deny God in public places and to force a vulgar, immoral set of values on our children in public schools? Is God pleased that “the will of the people” chooses to legalize intrinsically evil homosexual unions? (These are erroneously called “marriages” as there is no such thing in objective reality as “marriage” between same sex couples.) Does God change His morality based on the “will of the people”? Is God Himself subject to “the will of the people”? How ludicrous! Can the “will of the people” ever be wrong? Of course, it can, and it is when it yields to morality outside of God’s own.

Such is the situation today in the United States of America. The “will of the people” (or of the usurping minority interests as the case may be) is wrong. That people can be guided to a life giving, truly progressive (“progressive” being properly understood) society by its own “will” without regard to God’s will is a grave (and tragic) error in thinking. Just look around. We in the United States have developed, through the “will of the people” (or of the usurping minority interests), and particularly since “the Sixties” revolution, the most vulgar, obscene, “life-taking,” religious-phobic, and brazenly blasphemous culture ever known on earth. Our culture speaks for the value systems of those in it. A culture is a reflection of what “the people” believe. It is obvious that “the people” (or the usurping minority interests) do not believe in God.

The political and social solution, a superior form of government, the Catholic Monarchy

JOA coronation radiance

What is needed is a society founded on the authentic and unchanging morality of God. This unchanging morality is known through the Catholic Church, which is the seed of the eternal Kingdom of God on earth and is the Body and Bride of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, who founded her and teaches through her in every age through the Holy Spirit. Such a society did exist in ancient Christendom, ruled by Kings and Popes, and it is a far superior model for the United States today than is its own broken and mostly ignored constitution in its “Democratic Republic” (though in reality a mere pluralistic system of competing, usurping minority ideologies).

God created us with free will and gave us the most magnificent of freedoms to “eat from any of the trees in the garden.” That is astonishing freedom! However, of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” we must not eat lest we die. In other words, when the “will of the people” is to determine capriciously for ourselves what is morally right and what is morally wrong, outside of God’s eternal law, the “will of the people” leads us to death. There we have the contemporary situation in the United States of America, already dying by this spiritual malignancy of moral anarchy.

The Catholic Monarchy is a superior form of government to that of the Republic with the latter’s whimsical “will of the people” and that will’s aimlessly shifting and decaying morality. The Catholic Monarchy most resembles the authentic, aristocratic hierarchy of the Kingdom of Heaven. The King and Queen, by Divine Right, rule as a father and mother, and ensure that society follows the proper norms of Catholic morality, which is the very morality the United States inherited from ancient Christendom (and has now thrown aside). By answering to the Holy Father, Our Pope, in Rome on matters of faith and morals, a King’s potential tendency toward totalitarianism is checked. That is the historical record of ancient Christendom. Popes in that time were counter-balances that checked against Kings who tried to get out of hand. The check and balance between King and Pope is far superior to the checks and balances in the United States Constitution. The checks and balances of the Constitution have not prevented a totalitarianism of moral anarchy in the social order. The Constitution merely checks the branches of government in the enforcement of whatever the whimsical “will of the people” has established as a rule of law. It does not, and is not even designed to, check the “will of the people” itself. Checks between Popes and Kings do exactly that.

The objectives of the CRAA

mission divine 2.jpg

The Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America is set forth here as a potential social and political Counterrevolutionary movement with the objective of changing the course of America back to the goodness of Catholic government and culture which had been developed for well over 1,500 years through the Catholic Empire of ancient Christendom. It is the rejection of this millennium and a half worth of religious and moral development, along with the ill-fated substitution of the Democratic Republic for the Catholic Monarchy that is killing the United States and the West today.

The CRAA would seek:

– To promote the understanding that the American Republic, having run the natural course of Democratic Republicanism and having now fallen victim to the spirit of anti-God revolution which parades as the “will of the people,” is now irreparably lost and must seek a more authentic (and more freeing, with “freedom” properly understood) form of government, specifically that of a Catholic Monarchy.

– The establishment of a Catholic Monarchy in the United States which would be the right hand of the Catholic Church. This Catholic Monarchy would restore an authentic moral order based on the guidance of the Church while still allowing for religious freedom in the land and the high principles sought in our (now usurped) constitution, such as freedom of speech and association. Law and culture, however, would reflect Catholic morality. The country would be run by a Monarch who is checked by a truly sovereign and independent Church, not by a flock of politicians all checking each other (the fox guarding the hen house).

– In the interim, changes to current United States law, including changes to the constitution, which would pave the way for a Catholic Monarch and would, through the Church’s social teachings, begin the establishment of a legitimate hierarchy of values to guide society.

– To support the restoration of Catholic Kingdoms throughout the West, most importantly in France, the “eldest daughter of the Church,” whose main role in history, up to the time of the dreadful Revolution and implementation of the vulgar Republic, had been to defend Christendom and the Church.

The ultimate aim of all this would be the restoration of a united Christendom in the West ruled by legitimate Catholic Kings and which civilization would honor Jesus Christ as our true King, the most holy and glorious Virgin Mary as our rightfully exalted Queen, and the Saints as our noble sisters and brothers.

The Counterrevolution driven by the CRAA and its spiritual organization, The Dove and Rose, would be a form of Crusade against the tyranny of secularism and the “revolution” against God that has been waged by the evil incarnate one since the beginning of time. This revolution rears its diabolical head in every century and has now infested the Republic of the United States of America. The Crusade that is the Counterrevolution is to be seen as an act of love for our fellow man and of self-defense for our culture and way of life.

Summary

A restored Catholic civilization is our only hope. Yet, due to the world’s primordial enmity with and hatred for Jesus Christ, His Church, and, therefore, us as well, it is possible that in order to restore it we might have to shed our blood in the ultimate sacrifice as did our Fathers in the faith before us. We are unworthy of such an honor; however, if called, we pray for the grace to be obedient even unto death to Christ and His Church, to the Holy Virgin, Mother of God and our glorious Queen, and to the Saints reigning in heaven with them.

Vive le Roi. Vive la culture Catholique. Vive des Etats-Unis. Vive la France. Monarchie Catholique en avant!

St. Joan of Arc, pray for us! St. Thérèse of Lisieux, pray for us! Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us! Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, have mercy on us!

“Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Amen, so be it.
