|Omigosh, She has the "SSPX banner" on her house! Duh...It's not the "SSPX banner!"|
Ignorance reigns on Christine Niles' Facebook page.
Today is the feast of St. Lawrence, my husband's patron saint. It's also the anniversary of the day Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were arrested. The monarchy in France ended.
The sins of the fathers are visited on the children and thus it was with Louis XVI whose ancestor, Louis XIV failed to obey Our Lord's instruction, through St. Margaret Mary, to dedicate France to the. Sacred Heart of Jesus. One hundred years later, France was inflicted with the butchery of the French Revolution inspired by masonic hatred of the Church. The royal family was imprisoned and ultimately executed.
The cataclysm of the French Revolution didn't begin with the arrest of the royal family. The movement of diabolical disorientation was in the works for centuries. Does anyone think the diabolical disorientation of our own time only began on election day when our modern, atheistic revolutionaries took possession of the White House?
History is repeating itself and those who are ignorant of history will be blind to the realities we face. The year 2029 will mark the 100th anniversary of our Blessed Mother appearing to Lucia of Fatima to say the time had come for the consecration of Russia. To this day Mary's request has never been fulfilled. Partial and incomplete consecrations have taken place which resulted in historical moments like the tearing down of the Berlin wall. But as 2029 nears, Mary continues to be ignored. We are in the throes of cataclysmic events. What will the 100th anniversary of shame give us? Will it mirror what happened to the monarchy in France. Will our constitutional republic finally be totally crushed and replaced with an atheistic tyranny?
Which brings me to a somewhat related issue.
A friend sent me a thread from Church Militant "investigator" Christine Niles' Facebook page which I wouldn't have seen otherwise. Christine tags me, but I usually ignore her. This thread involved a number of insults and epithets including the accusation that I'm a liar, a hypocrite, and "beyond gross." Thank you, Lord, for insults; may they keep me humble. I'm having a mass said for these folks in thanksgiving for their comments.
But one comment involved so much ignorance that I laughed. It showed a photo of my house (the one above) with two Trump flags on either side of a flag that Kurt Chione, whoever he is, called the "SSPX banner."
Here's your history lesson for the day, Kurt, and all your other ignorant friends. The flag on my porch, which I put up six months before the SSPX was even on my radar screen, is not the "SSPX banner." It's a combination of several provinces in France. The middle symbol is the Flag of the Vendee.
Has Kurt ever heard of the Vendee? That was the province in France that, like the Cristeros in Mexico, rose up to defend the Church and protect her priests during the French Revolution. They were peasants with pitchforks who faced the well-armed butchers of the revolutionary army. The colorful border around the Vendee flag represents two other regions of France that, if I'm correct, supported the Vendee uprising.
In the end the inhabitants of the Vendee, who became a real threat by some military successes, were murdered in a horrifying genocide. After the assault, the revolutionary general, Joseph Westermann, sent this missive to Robespierre’s Committee of Public Safety:
There is no more Vendee … according to the orders you gave me, I crushed the children under the feet of horses, massacred the women … I have exterminated everyone … Mercy is not a revolutionary sentiment.
That's for sure! Among their other atrocities they stripped priests naked and tied them together with naked women before throwing them into the river to drown. The Loire ran with blood and bodies.
No one corrected Chione's error, so I presume Christine's followers have no idea what the flag really represented. They just wanted another stick to beat on one of Christine's "pedo-enablers." Charity is not Church Militant's strong point.
I presume that the SSPX adopted the symbol of the Vendee because their origin is French and they love the Sacred Heart which the patriots of the Vendee sewed on their clothing. In view of their vigorous defense of the faith and the priesthood, the symbol seems appropriate.
I hope everyone reading this will study what happened in the Vendee. All Catholics should imitate those heroes of the faith because we are facing the same evils in America today and the same diabolical spirit that went into overdrive after Vatican II.
One last thought. Kurt Chione used my copyrighted photo without my permission. Should I threaten a lawsuit for the use of my copyrighted photo to attack me?
Nah...I'll just pray for Chione (and all Niles' followers) that someone does them the favor of the spiritual work of mercy, "to instruct the ignorant."
