IN THE YEAR OF THE LORD, 2019, I Andrew, family and blood relative to King Philip IV of France, while I am working on writing the book on the Knights Templar to tell their story true and correct the errors and claims of the Free Masons, as was put in the Papal Bull of Pope Clement V absolving them of wrongs and truth they did no wrong and held true to their oath to the Holy Rule, I too, absolve them of whatever my relative charged them with and bring them into good and holy standing with Holy Mother Church, even though Pope Clement IV dissolves the Order.
May you and your family of these brave, holy, honorable men forgive the Realm of France for these wrongs.
As our duty as Catholics call us to do, to preach and instruct the ignorant, which is a work of mercy, even when other so-called Catholics come in great force & attack you constantly for an entire day, then later on other social networks. By writing books, you learn things you didn’t know and through these books, people learn things either no longer taught, because either the current bishops think parts of the Church’s Grand History should not be taught, or it was a mistake or an evil, and they do apologizing tours, if it was not for the Crusades, The Battle of Tours, Siege of Vienna, The Reconquest of Hispania, The Battle of Lepanto, Europe would be what it is today, being over run by the Mohammedans, and Christendom would of died with it, as it is today, because bishops and political leaders want to think and make us believe these important battles and wars of Holy Mother Church were wrong and sinful, and they have re-wired a good number of Catholics’ minds to believe this.
That is where the Deus Vult Trilogy comes in, to undo what these heretic bishops teach and even what those in the Vatican teach and believe about the Crusades.
Then the sequel to it, Reclaiming The Knights Templar For Holy Mother Church, to reclaim and prove the Knights Templar did nothing wrong, show their great history and go through the sham trials and persecution, and then reclaim them for Holy Mother Church and end the hold of the Free Masons on this Holy Order!
The First Book: On Becoming Soldiers Of The Cross, Again! ending the horrible instruction modern day soldiers get and end their warped thinking that they can’t use their military training for good, and helping the defenseless Christians and everyone. You can purchase this E-Book for $10 American, please check all places in your email for the download link, once you download it, the charge will be made for the $10, if you need help, contact us
Now, we come to this book, I was wondering what to write to help our dear French Brethren, who have been rewired to accept what the French Revolt and Great Persecutor of the Church, Napoleon was a good guy and good for France, there are books on my 57th Great Grandfather, Charles Martel, Books on my 1st cousin of 57 Generations, Charlemagne, John of Jonville’s Autobiography of my 42nd Great Uncle, St. King Louis IX is still in print, but a book just about my Great Grandfather, King Hugh of Capet, who started the Capet Line, without him, France did not have a Catholic Monarchy up to the French Revolt!
It will be a hard book, all the books I am currently working on, the material is out there, easy to find, but the fourth one, that might be a bit difficult, if you know of any material on how his staff was, who was it, advisors, confessors, how his court was run, how he ruled France, please comment or use the contact page or contact our Page for Ordo Militaris Books on Facebook
I hope we can do it in two languages, English for our English Readers, and French for our friends in France and other French Speaking Countries.
Again, all proceeds go directly to Ordo Militaris Catholicus, to help them finally get operational and able to give our needed persecuted brethren proper security and peace, according to all US and International Laws.
Our post got great reactions, not proper Catholic Reactions, but more Worldly and cursed filled reaction, by a Catholic in America and total refusal of His Holiness Leo XIII’s Encyclical on the heresy of Americanism, and that EWTN even removed his encyclical from their library.
It is not my first time having a run in with these type of “Catholics” where you had to be a American by denying your faith, you couldn’t question the government, all the idols there is in America that takes our focus from our One God, Jesus Christ.
With this reaction of denying our Faith, where our Faith must come first above all, these errors have crept in, where we push our identity out and replace it with an American identity, where we worship all things America, instead of giving thanks to God the Creator, for the sports America has for use to be enjoyed by or take part in, but instead these sports, music, movies, TV, Politics have become a false god of itself, but this is not who we are.
Who is it that we serve? The country, the creatures? or our Creator and King?
Then, we see the fall of Education, and it is a machine making socialists or light weight communists and then full weight communists, fake Catholic Universities, where the faith is not taught and kids loose their faith, and heresies promoted and taught openly.
So, we need a new Education System founded upon Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman’s book, The Idea of The University, please read my post on it here.
So, I ask again, Who is it that we serve? The country, the creatures? or our Creator and King?
I see Traditional Catholic Posts about Louis of Bourbon, sure he is well known, out in the public eye, but is he directly related to the Capet House? I do not know. I am directly related to both the House of Capet and Bourbon by blood. When I see the posts saying, he is the only option for King of France, but I do not think he is a good choice, we should not want someone connected to scandal filled Order of Malta, where they supported and handed out contraceptionand now ending the Traditional Liturgy.
Nothing against my supposed relative, sure he is in France, but let us let God decide who will restore France. I pray it is not me, but if God restores my health and does select me, I will restore the principles and everything Saint King Louis IX used to justly rule France!
American Catholicism, we are very patriotic, love our nation, defend our founding of the brave Christian men and women who died to give us our independence, then something new creeps in and then over takes it, where we are more American than Catholic.
I too am guilty of this, and fighting like crazy to fix it, because I am tired of it, same old politics, same old candidates, nothing new, some good things happen, but we lose our identity of who we are and that is to be Catholic! We have begun to dress like everyone else, speak like everyone else, use swear words like everyone else, we compromise on either the smallest thing or the largest thing, then pretty soon from that compromise, we are no longer Catholic, even though we go to Mass, we may pray, go to Confession, but our actions, our language, our appearance, has been replaced to American.
Doing my family tree, learning of my heritage, most of all the Catholic Faith through that heritage, and fighting as I have said to rid in me that horrible stuff, Pope Leo XIII calls Americanism from my person, all that is removing my Catholic identity. I will never stop loving my country, because my ancestors fought and died in the American Revolution & War of 1812, that is the good part, but everything else that is stripping the Catholic Identity must be removed.
From volunteering my services for free, for Ordo Militaris Catholicus, meeting different people, Catholics of all kinds, it is sad to see in certain Traditional Catholic circles, so many errors inside it, those who promote a type of Puritanism where certain music, if it is upbeat, rock sounding is bad, even though the song itself is Catholic, tells the story of the 189 Swiss Guards, and then Americanism.
What does Pope Leo XIII say about Americanism?
“These dangers, viz., the confounding of license with liberty, the passion for discussing and pouring contempt upon any possible subject, the assumed right to hold whatever opinions one pleases upon any subject and to set them forth in print to the world, have so wrapped minds in darkness that there is now a greater need of the Church’s teaching office than ever before, lest people become unmindful both of conscience and of duty.
We, indeed, have no thought of rejecting everything that modern industry and study has produced; so far from it that we welcome to the patrimony of truth and to an ever-widening scope of public well-being whatsoever helps toward the progress of learning and virtue. Yet all this, to be of any solid benefit, nay, to have a real existence and growth, can only be on the condition of recognizing the wisdom and authority of the Church.
Coming now to speak of the conclusions which have been deduced from the above opinions, and for them, we readily believe there was no thought of wrong or guile, yet the things themselves certainly merit some degree of suspicion. First, all external guidance is set aside for those souls who are striving after Christian perfection as being superfluous or indeed, not useful in any sense—the contention being that the Holy Spirit pours richer and more abundant graces than formerly upon the souls of the faithful, so that without human intervention He teaches and guides them by some hidden instinct of His own. Yet it is the sign of no small over-confidence to desire to measure and determine the mode of the Divine communication to mankind, since it wholly depends upon His own good pleasure, and He is a most generous dispenser ‘of his own gifts. “The Spirit breatheth whereso He listeth.”—John iii, 8.
“And to each one of us grace is given according to the measure of the giving of Christ.”—Eph. iv, 7.
And shall any one who recalls the history of the apostles, the faith of the nascent church, the trials and deaths of the martyrs—and, above all, those olden times, so fruitful in saints—dare to measure our age with these, or affirm that they received less of the divine outpouring from the Spirit of Holiness? Not to dwell upon this point, there is no one who calls in question the truth that the Holy Spirit does work by a secret descent into the souls of the just and that He stirs them alike by warnings and impulses, since unless this were the case all outward defense and authority would be unavailing. “For if any persuades himself that he can give assent to saving, that is, to gospel truth when proclaimed, without any illumination of the Holy Spirit, who give’s unto all sweetness both to assent and to hold, such an one is deceived by a heretical spirit.”—From the Second Council of Orange, Canon 7.
Moreover, as experience shows, these monitions and impulses of the Holy Spirit are for the most part felt through the medium of the aid and light of an external teaching authority. To quote St. Augustine. “He (the Holy Spirit) co-operates to the fruit gathered from the good trees, since He externally waters and cultivates them by the outward ministry of men, and yet of Himself bestows the inward increase.”—De Gratia Christi, Chapter xix. This, indeed, belongs to the ordinary law of God’s loving providence that as He has decreed that men for the most part shall be saved by the ministry also of men, so has He wished that those whom He calls to the higher planes of holiness should be led thereto by men; hence St. Chrysostom declares we are taught of God through the instrumentality of men.—Homily I in Inscrib. Altar. Of this a striking example is given us in the very first days of the Church.
For though Saul, intent upon blood and slaughter, had heard the voice of our Lord Himself and had asked, “What dost Thou wish me to do?” yet he was bidden to enter Damascus and search for Ananias. Acts ix: “Enter the city and it shall be there told to thee what thou must do.”
Nor can we leave out of consideration the truth that those who are striving after perfection, since by that fact they walk in no beaten or well-known path, are the most liable to stray, and hence have greater need than others of a teacher and guide. Such guidance has ever obtained in the Church; it has been the universal teaching of those who throughout the ages have been eminent for wisdom and sanctity—and hence to reject it would be to commit one’s self to a belief at once rash and dangerous.
A thorough consideration of this point, in the supposition that no exterior guide is granted such souls, will make us see the difficulty of locating or determining the direction and application of that more abundant influx of the Holy Spirit so greatly extolled by innovators To practice virtue there is absolute need of the assistance of the Holy Spirit, yet we find those who are fond of novelty giving an unwarranted importance to the natural virtues, as though they better responded to the customs and necessities of the times and that having these as his outfit man becomes more ready to act and more strenuous in action. It is not easy to understand how persons possessed of Christian wisdom can either prefer natural to supernatural virtues or attribute to them a greater efficacy and fruitfulness. Can it be that nature conjoined with grace is weaker than when left to herself?
Can it be that those men illustrious for sanctity, whom the Church distinguishes and openly pays homage to, were deficient, came short in the order of nature and its endowments, because they excelled in Christian strength? And although it be allowed at times to wonder at acts worthy of admiration which are the outcome of natural virtue—is there anyone at all endowed simply with an outfit of natural virtue? Is there any one not tried by mental anxiety, and this in no light degree? Yet ever to master such, as also to preserve in its entirety the law of the natural order, requires an assistance from on high These single notable acts to which we have alluded will frequently upon a closer investigation be found to exhibit the appearance rather than the reality of virtue. Grant that it is virtue, unless we would “run in vain” and be unmindful of that eternal bliss which a good God in his mercy has destined for us, of what avail are natural virtues unless seconded by the gift of divine grace? Hence St. Augustine well says: “Wonderful is the strength, and swift the course, but outside the true path.” For as the nature of man, owing to the primal fault, is inclined to evil and dishonor, yet by the help of grace is raised up, is borne along with a new greatness and strength, so, too, virtue, which is not the product of nature alone, but of grace also, is made fruitful unto everlasting life and takes on a more strong and abiding character.
This over-esteem of natural virtue finds a method of expression in assuming to divide all virtues in active and passive, and it is alleged that whereas passive virtues found better place in past times, our age is to be characterized by the active. That such a division and distinction cannot be maintained is patent—for there is not, nor can there be, merely passive virtue. “Virtue,” says St. Thomas Aquinas, “designates the perfection of some faculty, but end of such faculty is an act, and an act of virtue is naught else than the good use of free will,” acting, that is to say, under the grace of God if the act be one of supernatural virtue.
He alone could wish that some Christian virtues be adapted to certain times and different ones for other times who is unmindful of the apostle’s words: “That those whom He foreknew, He predestined to be made conformable to the image of His Son.”— Romans viii, 29. Christ is the teacher and the exemplar of all sanctity, and to His standard must all those conform who wish for eternal life. Nor does Christ know any change as the ages pass, “for He is yesterday and today and the same forever.”—Hebrews xiii, 8. To the men of all ages was the precept given: “Learn of Me, because I am meek and humble of heart.”—Matt. xi, 29.
To every age has He been made manifest to us as obedient even unto death; in every age the apostle’s dictum has its force: “Those who are Christ’s have crucified their flesh with its vices and concupiscences.” Would to God that more nowadays practiced these virtues in the degree of the saints of past times, who in humility, obedience and self-restraint were powerful “in word and in deed” —to the great advantage not only of religion, but of the state and the public welfare.
From this disregard of the angelical virtues, erroneously styled passive, the step was a short one to a contempt of the religious life which has in some degree taken hold of minds. That such a value is generally held by the upholders of new views, we infer from certain statements concerning the vows which religious orders take. They say vows are alien to the spirit of our times, in that they limit the bounds of human liberty; that they are more suitable to weak than ›o strong minds; that so far from making for human perfection and the good of human organization, they are hurtful to both; but that this is as false as possible from the practice and the doctrine of the Church is clear, since she has always given the very highest approval to the religious method of life; nor without good cause, for those who under the divine call have freely embraced that state of life did not content themselves with the observance of precepts, but, going forward to the evangelical counsels, showed themselves ready and valiant soldiers of Christ. Shall we judge this to be a characteristic of weak minds, or shall we say that it is useless or hurtful to a more perfect state of life?
Those who so bind themselves by the vows of religion, far from having suffered a loss of liberty, enjoy that fuller and freer kind, that liberty, namely, by which Christ hath made us free. And this further view of theirs, namely, that the religious life is either entirely useless or of little service to the Church, besides being injurious to the religious orders cannot be the opinion of anyone who has read the annals of the Church. Did not your country, the United States, derive the beginnings both of faith and of culture from the children of these religious families? to one of whom but very lately, a thing greatly to your praise, you have decreed that a statue be publicly erected. And even at the present time wherever the religious families are found, how speedy and yet how fruitful a harvest of good works do they not bring forth! How very many leave home and seek strange lands to impart the truth of the gospel and to widen the bounds of civilization; and this they do with the greatest cheerfulness amid manifold dangers! Out of their number not less, indeed, than from the rest of the clergy, the Christian world finds the preachers of God’s word, the directors of conscience, the teachers of youth and the Church itself the examples of all sanctity.
Nor should any difference of praise be made between those who follow the active state of life and those others who, charmed with solitude, give themselves to prayer and bodily mortification. And how much, indeed, of good report these have merited, and do merit, is known surely to all who do not forget that the “continual prayer of the just man” avails to placate and to bring down the blessings of heaven when to such prayers bodily mortification is added.
But if there be those who prefer to form one body without the obligation of the vows let them pursue such a course. It is not new in the Church, nor in any wise censurable. Let them be careful, however, not to set forth such a state above that of religious orders. But rather, since mankind are more disposed at the present time to indulge themselves in pleasures, let those be held in greater esteem “who having left all things have followed Christ.”
Finally, not to delay too long, it is stated that the way and method hitherto in use among Catholics for bringing back those who have fallen away from the Church should be left aside and another one chosen, in which matter it will suffice to note that it is not the part of prudence to neglect that which antiquity in its long experience has approved and which is also taught by apostolic authority. The scriptures teach us that it is the duty of all to be solicitous for the salvation of one’s neighbor, according to the power and position of each. The faithful do this by religiously discharging the duties of their state of life, by the uprightness of their conduct, by their works of Christian charity and by earnest and continuous prayer to God. On the other hand, those who belong to the clergy should do this by an enlightened fulfillment of their preaching ministry, by the pomp and splendor of ceremonies especially by setting forth that sound form of doctrine which Saint Paul inculcated upon Titus and Timothy. But if, among the different ways of preaching the word of God that one sometimes seems to be preferable, which directed to non-Catholics, not in churches, but in some suitable place, in such wise that controversy is not sought, but friendly conference, such a method is certainly without fault. But let those who undertake such ministry be set apart by the authority of the bishops and let them be men whose science and virtue has been previously ascertained. For we think that there are many in your country who are separated from Catholic truth more by ignorance than by ill-will, who might perchance more easily be drawn to the one fold of Christ if this truth be set forth to them in a friendly and familiar way.
From the foregoing it is manifest, beloved son, that we are not able to give approval to those views which, in their collective sense, are called by some “Americanism.” But if by this name are to be understood certain endowments of mind which belong to the American people, just as other characteristics belong to various other nations, and if, moreover, by it is designated your political condition and the laws and customs by which you are governed, there is no reason to take exception to the name. But if this is to be so understood that the doctrines which have been adverted to above are not only indicated, but exalted, there can be no manner of doubt that our venerable brethren, the bishops of America, would be the first to repudiate and condemn it as being most injurious to themselves and to their country. For it would give rise to the suspicion that there are among you some who conceive and would have the Church in America to be different from what it is in the rest of the world.
But the true church is one, as by unity of doctrine, so by unity of government, and she is catholic also. Since God has placed the center and foundation of unity in the chair of Blessed Peter, she is rightly called the Roman Church, for “where Peter is, there is the church.” Wherefore, if anybody wishes to be considered a real Catholic, he ought to be able to say from his heart the selfsame words which Jerome addressed to Pope Damasus: “I, acknowledging no other leader than Christ, am bound in fellowship with Your Holiness; that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that the church was built upon him as its rock, and that whosoever gathereth not with you, scattereth.” His Holiness, Leo XIII, On Americanism
We as Catholics should not compromise with anything of this world, we must hold fast to our Faith, and listen to His Holiness on not giving into the passions of the world, not allow our very self to be changed, not allow our thinking to be changed into thinking we must conform with the world to get ahead in life, but to bring the Church to the world and make the world Catholic.
As Catholics, we are not slaves of this world, nor are we to become slaves of the world, but compromising and bringing ourselves down to their level, we are to bring the world to Christ and pronounce and show Christ is King and that the world is to serve and worship Christ as King alone! We do not need worldly trend prophets to say what we should do, we are to live as Catholics, our very words, actions, way we as a person are, is to show we are ruled by no one except Christ the King and that means we do as He commands, “Give to Cesar what is Cesar, and to God, that is to God.”
If we need a trend prophet to lead us and guide us, then we are no longer Catholic, we have become fully Americanism in our very being! Only people who have taught properly on finance and economics, are the Doctors of the Church, especially my favorite Franciscan Blessed, Blessed John Duns Scotus, those are the ones we are to follow! It is crazy that we turn from books written by the Saints on every part of our life and look for something else where, that they taught on properly and for us to use at all times.
Our goal is what? Save souls, bring them to Christ, and make Christ the King of the whole world, so we need Catholics running for office to bring this change, but what type of Catholics do we have in office now?
Americanism Catholcism, who support everything that is contrary to the Doctrine of the Catholic Church! Can America have a Catholic Party? Sure, but it cannot run on the normal useless policies that are pushed constantly, and no it cannot be American Catholic ideology. What society made Great Saints in Europe? The Holy Roman Empire, especially Saint King Louis IX.
There is only one Catholic French King the Revolters of the French Revolution loved that brought on The current form of French Government, Saint King Louis IX, because his policies on ruling France was Just. His Policies on what he did are easily found today! In his Official Autobiography by John of Joinville, it is so simple that it is right there.
If a Catholic Party of America is created, no other policies are needed, use what Saint King Louis IX used to justly rule France, proper and affordable healthcare, absolutely no abortions, no contraception, no homo-sexual marriage, love of country, everything that is in line with Church Doctrine, and nothing that is contrary to Church Doctrine. Absolutely NO SOCIALISTS OR COMMUNISTS OR FREE MASONS CAN RUN AS CATHOLICS!
These candidates once found, would be spreading the Authentic Catholic Doctrine from one side of the country to the other, Catholics would be hearing more Catholic Truth than ever heard in their parish church or from their Bishops. One thing, expect huge and major blow back from the bishops, because they will not like it, because they too are filled with the heresy of Americanism and you must not compromise one inch.
