Jacques Tati, Monsieur Hulot

Jacques Tati played the amusing Monsieur Hulot in the 1950-60's series of films. One of my favorite films (I will stay up late to watch it) is Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot or Monsieur Hulot's Vacation. This is the part where he almost goes horseback riding...

Voice from Hell

(noise) This is Jeff Murray, I was born in Queens. This words are for Muriel Murray, of 722 Folsom Boulevard, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Muriel, I am your brother Jeff. I died in prison. I don't have a lot of time, I must explain... The blood of those children... you must stop that thing... the blood of children. When I passed through the corridor before entering eternal death I was allowed to see all of history in one minute. Two men dressed in white showed it to me in a small blob of ink. In the center of the blob I could see the Great Lady, she is a young mother of great beauty--it is hard for me to talk about beauty now... beauty hurts so much in this place... aack... (noise) yes... she was giving her son in the hands of God, for a brief moment. God allowed men to kill him. He was losing a lot of blood... his mother soaked a big cloth with his blood, she wanted to keep it... to give it to God as He was waiting... then God lifted the bleeding man. I am sure he was Jee-suss... oh... it hurts so much dear sister... and with the blood of Jesus, with every drop he rescued souls that went flying to him... Oh... but there was also an enemy. He was tied and then they let him loose. The enemy knows that he can convince a mother to give him the blood of her baby... he can use it to rescue his minions... he went out to convince the whole world that killing the babies is what they ought to do. He will use the blood of those babies to free the demons in the deep dark pits. Muriel dear, I am so sorry I lied to you... I was not working as a gynecologist... I made more money performing abortions... ah... money hurts and burns my hands and eyes now... save yourself, my sister. I have found this. It's like a tape recorder and I can speak through it... they let me do it but it hurts... a horrible pain to speak... this... aghh... I hope it reaches you. If it's found, take it to 722 Folsom Boulevard, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I hope it's not too late... (cries?) late... (noise)

Carlos Caso-Rosendi placed these powerful words in his blog as a part of a blog article. Carlos has told me that in speaking to exorcists that Satan uses the blood of the the child-martyrs to unlock demons from hell to assist in the destruction of humanity. To me this story stands alone...

Another Photo of the Royal Couple

I am posting a photograph from Catherine's Laudem Gloriae of the Royal couple at the reception in honour of the Duchesse of Segovia and Anjou on her 95th birthday anniversary.Most Rev Nicholas Thevenin (Sec of Cardinal Bertone), the Ambassador of Belgium to the Holy See and SMOM, Cardinal Tauran, the Duchess of Segovia and Anjou, the Duchess of Anjou, the Duke of Anjou, Mgr Mamberti, the Ambassador of Portugal to the Holy See.

Note: Cardinal Tauran, Mgr Mamberti, and Mgr Thevenin are all French and would probably consider themselves Legitimists.

Someday I hope to post a photo of the King and Queen in their Coronation robes.

L'Ordre du Saint-Esprit

Christine From Laudem Gloriae posted this amongst this weeks articles. This is but the toparticle in her blog, but scroll down for other interesting thoughts.

...This most august order in France (though the Order of St. Michael is more ancient) was created by King Henry III, in honor of the fact that he was elected King of France and Poland on two separate Pentecosts. It is reserved for Catholic royalty. The French government under the Revolution abolished this and all Catholic chivalric orders; after it was revived under the Restoration of the House of Bourbon, it was again abolished by Orleanist Louis-Philippe after the July 1830 Revolution. The Legitimist pretenders, who support Louis-Alphonse as lawful king of France, continue to nominate members...more...

Thank you Christine.

Madame Elisabeth eldest daughter of Louis XV

Versailles and more published a new entry entitled "Madame Elisabeth, daughter of Louis XV" by Catherine Delors. To understand the reign of Louis XVI we must remember the previous reign and those who played a pivotal role in the formation (even if on the edge) of the martyred King.

...This is the first post in the long promised series on the daughters of Louis XV and Marie Leszczynska. I feel the best way to meet these fascinating ladies is in chronological order.

On August 14, 1727, Queen Marie Leszczynska gave birth to twin girls, the first born being Marie-Louise-Elisabeth, known as Madame Elisabeth, or simply, as the King's eldest daughter, Madame. Louis XV, who was only seventeen, had of course been hoping for a male heir, but he was nonetheless delighted by the birth of the girls. "People said I could not have children," he went around repeating, "and see, I made two!"

Elisabeth is his darling, his Babette. She has never been considered pretty, but she is bright, vivacious, willful. Yet dynastic politics lead Louis XV to arrange her marriage to her cousin, Philippe de Bourbon, younger son of the King of Spain. It is considered a mediocre match for a Fille de France ("Daughter of France") to marry a foreign prince unlikely to succeed to any throne, but Louis XV wants to reinforce the family ties with the Spanish Bourbons.

The bride is only twelve, and she is heartbroken when she must leave Versailles and her twin, Madame Henriette. "Tis forever, my God, tis forever," she sobs in the arms of her sister. Indeed it was often true at the time: as a rule a princess, once married abroad, never set foot again in her native country. That is, for instance, what happened to Marie-Antoinette. But, as she shall see, Madame Elisabeth will never allow herself to be bound by rules applicable to ordinary princesses.

Twelve and married! I could not have parted with my daughters at twelve.

Thanks and a tip of the beret to Catherine! Madame Catherine has more pictures at her site. The portraits are a snapshot into the life of the royal family; Catherine has pointed out some interesting facts about a family "photo".

New things about my blog

I will be developing a new blog which, with the exception of those articles which pertain to Louis XX or his family will be located. Too long have I drifted from my original purpose, to bring light and truth to the world of those horrible events which comprise the satanic and masonic attack on Holy Mother Church called the French Revolution. Art, music, food and the glory of God's earth will still be found here.

Next I have posted a mug shot of me on the blog.

Thoughts on November 11.

Once again I have the honour to post an article from my friend Matthew Palardy. de Brantigny

November 11 is the memorial of St. Martin de Tours, who was a cataphract in the Imperial Roman Army. Named for the war-god Mars and son of a tribune, he was destined for a promising military career, until the famous and oft-repeated incident in which he divided his scarlet cloak in half to clothe a naked beggar in Amiens, only to see in a dream later that the beggar to whom he had extended his charity was Jesus Christ Himself. Awakening in the morning, he found his cloak had been restored whole, and it became a treasured relic of the kings of the Franks. Unable to fight a Gaulish insurrection due to his religious principles, Martin was subsequently imprisoned and discharged from the Roman service. Taking on the mantle of religion, he went on to establish the first monasteries in Gaul and to become the Bishop of Tours.

Appropriately, the armistice ending the fratricidal devastation of the First World War on the Western Front was signed and came into effect on the memorial of this soldier-saint in 1918, 90 years ago. Having rejected the peace overtures of Pope Benedict XV and Charles I of Austria, peace in Europe finally came at the hands of “the Big Four,” an American racist and eugenicist, a Welsh Baptist Whig, an anticlerical French republican, and a Sicilian Mafioso—and no lasting peace, as Marshal Foch rightly pointed out, but a reprieve for 20 years. Charles I, the last reigning Habsburg prince, had been deposed, and would die several years later. The Russian Empire was dead, the Czar and his family summarily executed, and that diabolical idolatry, the Red Terror of Communism, had emerged to destroy the Russian people. What historians call the “long 19th century,” which began at the Bastille, was over, and an even more wicked age of feuding ideologies had been ushered in. Christendom, that traditional order of Europe, met her end. The past of Europe was dead, just as the future of Europe, the brave poilus and Tommy Atkinses whom we today commemorate, lay beneath the red poppies. It is rather appropriate that we should honour them with the memory of All Souls’ Day so clear in our minds.

The first blood of this long 19th-c. battle against Christendom was shed during the French Revolution, particularly heavily in the loyal Vendée and other western regions of France—areas St. Martin had evangelized. The armistice itself was signed in Foch’s railway carriage in Compiègne, where 14 subsequently beatified Carmelite nuns were sent to the guillotine, and where earlier, Ste Jeanne d’Arc was captured. And from there the insatiable river of blood widened as materialism marched through Europe turning nation against nation, people against people, brother against brother, and everyone against the Church, ending, in a sense, where it had begun.

We are likely today not to be called upon to defend our fatherlands from foreign aggression, to take up arms in the manner of the noble fallen of 1914-18. However, I have not given up on Christendom, occupied territory that she is today, and, I presume that, because you are reading this, neither have you, reader. The glorious war dead were certainly no pious caricatures, but they had virtue strong enough to have made the ultimate sacrifice for the honour of their nation and for their way of life. Certainly, the fallen were ordinary men before the call to arms, just as we are ordinary men today. As Catholics, would we make such a sacrifice for our Church and those that hold the Catholic Faith? Or would be barter away our culture and our identity for a trifle? Let us take example from St. Martin, who contested paganism and Arianism, and contest the false doctrines and cultures so prevalent in our midst, all the while promoting the true Catholic faith and cultures, for which our ancestors fought and died, that the sacrifice of those who have gone before us and whom we honour so deeply will not have been in vain.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

-from In Flanders Fields, by Lt.-Col. John McCrae, Canadian Army Medical Corps

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

St Martin, priez pour nous.

November 11

On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour...

Today marks the end of World War One 90 years ago. The memories of this date mean different things to each of the Allied nations.

...The British remember the glory of Mons, and the killing fields of the Somme,

...The French, the Taxi Cab Army and miracle of the Marne, the Cauldron called Verdun,

...The Australians, the heat of Gallipoli and Suvla Bay,

...The United States remembers the Marines at Belleau Wood, and the bravery at the Argonne,

...But Canadians, they remember Ypres and Flanders Fields...

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lt.-Col. John McCrae

Let them be remebered today.

"Faithful Citizenship"?

Moral Courage? The pamphlet and homilies on "Faithful Citizenship" by the Bishops of the United States was largely disregarded. With the exception of a few, the mostly wishy-washy USCCB persuasion argument fell on deaf ears last week.... A finer piece of double talk has never been published.

...the U. S. Catholic Bishops will revisit the topic of "Faithful Citizenship" --their nuanced statement on how believers should guide their vote by a Catholic teachings on a broad spectrum of social issues including, but not exclusively, opposition to abortion -- tomorrow at their annual fall meeting, just a week after their efforts proved largely unpersuasive with the voting flock.

Scores of Catholic bishops counseled -- even threatened -- that a vote for Obama/Biden, who both support access to legal abortion, could endanger a Catholic's salvation by cooperating with evil. In an address titled "Little Murders," Archbishop of Denver Charles Chaput, said he was only speaking for himself but, "To suggest - as some Catholics do - that Senator Obama is this year's 'real' prolife candidate requires a peculiar kind of self-hypnosis, or moral confusion, or worse..." more...

Francis Cardinal George in a rather candid opening address at the 2008 Fall General Assembly of the USCCB said, ...We can also be truly grateful that our country’s social conscience has advanced to the point that Barack Obama was not asked to renounce his racial heritage in order to be president, as, effectively, John Kennedy was asked to promise that his Catholic faith would not influence his perspective and decisions as president a generation ago. Echoes of that debate remain in the words of those who reject universal moral propositions that have been espoused by the human race throughout history, with the excuse that they are part of Catholic moral teaching. We are, perhaps, at a moment when, with the grace of God, all races are safely within the American consensus. We are not at the point, however, when Catholics, especially in public life, can be considered full partners in the American experience unless they are willing to put aside some fundamental Catholic teachings on a just moral and political order. The hubris that has isolated our country politically and now economically is heard, but not usually recognized, in moral arguments based simply and solely on individual moral autonomy. This personal and social dilemma is not, of course, a matter of ultimate importance, for America is not the Kingdom of God; but it makes America herself far less than she claims to be in this world.

Catholics went largely for Obama. Perhaps, as New York Times columnist Peter Steinfels observed this weekend:

Many Catholics may understandably feel that the bishops are talking out of both sides of their mouths: Catholics are not supposed to be single-issue voters, but, by the way, abortion is the only issue that counts. The bishops do not intend to tell Catholics how to vote; but, by the way, a vote for Senator Obama puts your salvation at risk. Catholics are to form their consciences and make prudential judgments about complex matters of good and evil -- just so long as they come to the same conclusions as the bishops.

...but how can they if the Bishops arguments are so nuanced as to be indecipherable? When will the USCCB rise as in one voice and say "NO!" this is not Catholic teaching, your soul is in jeopardy if you persist the support of abortion. Perhaps I am asking too much... Of the 9 priority initiatives through 2011 life is down at #7.

Happy Birthday Marines

Click the link...Happy 233nd
Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

For 233 years the Corps has kept the wolf away from the door, here is just one example...

Marines Save Lives as Fire Destroys O.C. Motel

November 10, 2008

LAKE FOREST -- Six off-duty Marines are being credited with saving lives after fire ripped through a motel in Lake Forest.

The Marines, who happened to be staying at the Americas Best Value Inn, spotted flames and smoke just before 8 a.m. Sunday.

Marine Pvt. Colton Oliver, Pvt. Josh Hernandez and Pvt. 1st Class Thomas O'Brien woke sleeping guests by banging on doors and shouting for residents to get out of the burning building.

Hernandez carried one elderly man to safety. After the fire the man was treated with oxygen.

Amy Amadito-Phelps, who was in a room on the second-floor, said that she and her husband and 14-month-old son might have died if not for the Marines.

"We were right next to a room completely on fire and we couldn't smell smoke," she said. "No fire alarms were going off. The only thing we heard was
Marines banging on our windows and telling us to get out."

The Marines were on a 96-hour liberty in anticipation of the Marine Corps "birthday" Nov. 10.

O'Brien, said that, despite the holiday mood, his natural instincts kicked in when he heard someone yell "fire".

About 100 firefighters battled the six-alarm fire at the three-story motel for three hours.

Fire officials say three of four buildings were burned, and two buildings are probably a total loss.

Damage estimates were not immediately available.

Flames from the fire shot 30 feet into the air, and the fire was still burning through the roof about two hours after it started. Twelve engines and four trucks were on the scene.

One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion, but no other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire, which displaced 100 to 150 people, is not yet known, though O'Brien said he first saw the fire burning at the back of a second-floor vending machine.

As for the Marines, they said they were acting on instinct.

"Everybody was out by the time the firefighters got here," Oliver said. "It's what we're trained to do."

Semper Fidelis

Upcoming predictions for the new year

As I have said before, history is replete with parallels, and do overs. 13 years after the American Revolution the the French overthrow their Sovereign and completely change the social order of France. From the system of government, to the calendar, to the prosecution of justice, to it's de-Christianization, the social fabric is torn from a glorious past, trampled underfoot and then remolded into a nearly unrecognizable form.

On January 20, 2009 the United States will begin it's own remolding of the social order by whom I believe to be an antichrist. Before you smirk I must say that I hope this is not the case. The antichrist as is told in sacred prophecy, will pull great numbers of peoples to his side by his charisma, he will promise to be all to everyone.

Here are my predictions for the first six months of the New Redeal. Expect these laws to be enacted by Congress or by Executive decree...

1. FOCA, the Freedom of Choice Act.(1)

According to the National Right to Life Committee's Legislative Action Center, the FOCA was introduced by Democrats in response to the April 18, 2007 U.S. Supreme Court decision (Gonzales v. Carhart) upholding the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

Among the types of laws that the FOCA would invalidate are:

-- The Hyde Amendment, which prohibits most federal funding of abortion, and the laws of many states that restrict state funding of abortion.

-- Laws in effect in some jurisdictions that bar abortions in government-operated hospitals.

-- Laws requiring parental notification or consent, or judicial authorization, before an abortion can be performed on a minor daughter.

-- Laws requiring that girls and women seeking abortion receive certain information on matters such as fetal development and alternatives to abortion, and then wait a specified period before the abortion is actually performed, usually 24 or 48 hours.

-- "Conscience" laws, allowing doctors, nurses, or other state-licensed professionals, and hospitals or other health-care providers, to decline to provide or pay for abortions.

To be brief, these laws would require Catholic Hospitals to perform abortions, provide information on Abortions, and distribute prophylactics.

2. Retirement funding...(2)

The Democratic Congress, (presumably with the OK from the Party leader Barack Obama) is currently holding hearing about federalizing the 401K retirement funds...

“With respect to the 401(k), it appears to be a plan that is not really well-devised for the changes in the market,” Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., said.

“We’ve invested $80 billion into subsidizing this activity,” he said, referring to tax breaks allowed for 401(k) contributions and savings.

With savings rates going down, “what do we have to start to think about in Congress of whether or not we want to continue and invest that $80 billion for a policy that is not generating what we … say it should?” Mr. Miller said.

Congress should let workers trade their 401(k) assets for guaranteed retirement accounts made up of government bonds, suggested Teresa Ghilarducci, an economics professor at The New School for Social Research in New York.

When workers collected Social Security, the guaranteed retirement account would pay an inflation-adjusted annuity under her plan.

“The way the government now encourages 401(k) plans is to spend $80 billion in tax breaks,” which goes to the highest-income earners, Ms. Ghilarducci said.

That simply results in transferring money from taxed savings accounts to untaxed accounts, she said.

This means any retirement monies which you have in your retirement will then become the property of the federal government and placed in the control of the Social Security Administration. You will gauranteed a 3% yearly gain, (far below the Cost of Living inflation.) Death gratutity will be reduced to no more than 50%.

We all know how good a job the federal government has done with Social Security.

3. Closing of the Guantanimo Terrorist Detention Center...
This along would not give me cause to be concerned, but the closing of the detention center may be the move which starts the repatriation of the entire base.

4. The repeal by executive order of the, Don't ask, don't tell policy.

5. The rise in gasoline prices as new taxes, a ban on of shore drilling and restrictions on new refineries.

6. The repealing of 200 executive orders, including stem cell research, climate change, abortion information overseas, and the performance of abortions on service women overseas by military hospitals.

7. The formation of a "Civilian Defense Corps to augment the National Guard and homand security. It would be manditory for 18 through 25 year olds.I am reminded of the SA of 1930's Germany...

8. There will be no "Middle Class Tax Cut." Clinton promised this too. I must add that to a democrat a cut is when you leave the tax the same and a cut in funding is when you leave the funding the same year after year.

After writing all this things I find in inconceivable that Catholics and Christians should actually have voted for B.O.

There is this one little thing I have noticed.

Rahm Emmanuel has become the Obama chief of staff. I will remind the reader that Emmanuel means "God with us."

Sometime in the future I expect that it will boil down to this one final question... "Will I stand with God and His Church, or the antichrist?"

Dieu Le Roy,

Dedication of the Lateran Basilica

"How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God and the gate of heaven."
~Gen. xxviii.

Today the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Dedication of St John Lateran, also called the Basilica of the Savior. As the Pope's official church, it is known as the "Mother Church of the World." Every Christian is called to be a Temple of the Lord, a tabernacle for the Divine Indwelling. This feast celebrates the holiness of the house of God, of every church building consecrated to His glory, of every Christian who through baptism becomes a sanctuary of the Most High. We look beyond the scandals of this world to the Bride of Christ, coming down out of Heaven from God, to the nuptial banquet at the end of time, of which we have already partaken. For every church is a miniature heaven, and every Mass is the marriage supper of the Lamb.more...
