An invitation...


Since we are faced with a civilization of increasing faithlessness, disguised as "inclusion and diversity," and wave upon wave of Muslim migrants, many of whom are undoubtedly Al-Qaeda and ISIS affiliates, I see no real hope for the preservation of Christianity in these Isles and on the Continent. I would therefore extend to Mr Putin in Russia an open invitation to invade and annex Europe to Orthodox Russia, and call upon anybody willing to assassinate the pope of Rome on the grounds of his despicable support for the new world order and for representing an institution fraught with corruption, superstition and riddled with falsehood. Destroy the Papacy as Napoleon and Garibaldi would have done! Let us begin a new Glorious Revolution and rejoice in the liberty of the Gospel; turn tyranny into kingship, and faction into faith. Let us pray for a return of the Emperor; not some German prince of a disheveled house but a true heir to bl. Constantine XI, or of St Nicholas II.

There is no hope left in the West, only the doctrines of inclusion, diversity and multiculturalism. Since the pope and our whole political class (save a few renegades) are on the side of these pernicious doctrines, inherently anti-Christian, put them out! Let them be scourged and humiliated; driven forth like cattle. We can either sit idly by as we become aliens in our own land, or do something. A new crusade, a glorious revolution, a reconquista. Something needs to happen or we will become thralls, more so than we are now. Something must happen, pray God.

God save The Queen!

  1. Patrick, please calm down. Your basic points are correct, but do not forget that it is also Catholic Eastern Europe, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland that is standing up for Europe as well. The last time Russia held Eastern Europe, during time of both the Tzars as well as Stalin, things did not go too well. Please try reading Tim Snyder's "Bloodlands."

    1. We MUST make Europe mission territory for the Russian Orthodox Church. You can't rely on this travesty of a pope! Let the Russian Orthodox Church offer an alternative to "if I were a wiggly worm," and the kind of banal, plastic religion I saw in Ireland. Traddies are no help!

      We MUST make Christianity by law Established once more. Christianity must be reflected in all laws, customs and public services.

    2. But Patrick, the Russian Orthodox are also out to destroy our ancient traditions as well; and they do have those dreaded elevations of the chalice and consecrated bread in their rite as well.

    3. What traditions? There are few traditions worth saving, even if they were salvageable. I would cordially welcome the Russian clergy to Britain and Ireland and send the native clergy packing; many of whom are incompetent, worldly and apathetic. As for elevations, at least they are not occasions of superstition in the Byzantine rite.

    4. You have not yet attended the pre-sanctified liturgies of lent. Have you seen the little old ladies going all ga-ga during the Great Entrance, and that revolves around the pre-consecrated elements? I think that the Anglican Catholic Church of England, albeit quite small, is doing quite a nice job of preserving our heritage; a heritage that the Russians consider to be baggage. You should see what the Russians have done to the liturgy of St Gregory the Great in their supposed western rite. What arrogance to think they can improve on the liturgy of this great saint.

    5. Great St Gregory undoubtedly was but I think it's a bit of an anachronism to suggest that modern "Western" liturgy resembles in any way the kind of liturgy St Gregory was accustomed to. I doubt he would even recognise the missal of Pius V, except in some old collects and the text of the Canon.

    6. One could say just the same about the mass of St John Chrysostom as well. The Baroque splendor one finds in the modern, especially post 1666 liturgical revisions, Russian rite have even less to do with the ancient Byzantine rite than our patrimony has to do with the time of St Gregory the Great.

  2. As I have commented before here I would welcome our beloved Sovereign become Empress of Europe. If the means are annexation by the Russian Federation I would say Amen but our historical failure to aid St. Nicholas II and His Family goes against us.

    Papa Francis appears to be driving the Traddies crazy. The sedes at RetRorate etc must be foaming at their hate filled mouths now so surely he must be doing something right although I do admit my disappointment that he has not, yet, re-abrogated the 1962MR.

    1. If Francis did indeed, as we piously hope, re-abrogate the 1962MR then I would toast his health, and to his memory, for the rest of my days.

    2. A bottle of Clos du Mesnil on that day Patricius!

  3. I am also following the news, and from “unconventional” sources. There has been quite a scuff between Putin and Obama at the big UN meeting. Putin pointed out that the only people qualified to decide whether they want Assad are citizens of the Syrian Republic. He does have a point and the Americans are coming out as the Axis. I find the idea according to which Daesh was set up by the US to fight a proxy war against Assad credible. It is also a hangover from the toppling of Saddam Hussein in Irak. I have a lot of sympathy with Putin, but I am cautious. He has his past as a KGB agent and there are legitimate questions around.

    Russia is carefully avoiding anything like looks like colonialism, just what it is accusing the USA and EU about. Perhaps if the US crashes economically and the EU splits apart over the immigration issue, some European countries might want more to do with Russia. That is as much as would happen unless Putin wants to run the risk of starting World War III. He is already having to be very careful in Syria and there is the problem of Ukraine.

    We “live in interesting times”. There will be blowback against ever-increasing Muslim immigration when distinctions are clearly made between refugees fleeing Daesh / ISIS and others on the bandwagon wanting to take advantage of the various European welfare state systems – pushing Europeans to the back of the queue. I’m glad to live in the countryside!

  4. Fr Anthony, I think that the historical hatreds towards Russia that so many, through centuries of experience, have with Russia will preclude any of them wishing to align with Russia...ever. What might happen, and perhaps should, is that central Europe will form its own united Europe and distance themselves from the liberal west, which will become increasingly Islamic. But moving in the Russian orbit...that will never happen.

  5. I support King Constantine II and the Greek Royal Family. Most European royal houses including the pre-1917 Romanovs have substantial German ancestry. I see nothing wrong with that.

  6. "There is no hope left in the West," quoth Denethor.

    1. Well, Dr Tighe, I am not quite sure of your intention but that's not the first time someone has used that quote against me so in my defence I'll say that at least Gandalf, to whom Denethor spoke those words, didn't look out from the walls of Minas Tirith and say: "awww, those poor little orcs under the domination of Sauron. Let's all invite them into our homes," which seems to be the policy of the other old man dressed in white whose death I am not sure many in the RC church would lament. Of course, I am comparing Gandalf with the Bishop of Rome, which is not altogether fair (on either of them).

      There are no passages in Tolkien that support globalisation or multiculturalism. There are many passages in Tolkien that mention migration: in Book VI of The Lord of the Rings (Barliman's misgivings about a lot of strangers moving in and "tearing up the wild country," I think it says), or the migration of Men into the Elven lands during the First Age in The Silmarillion (where they lived apart in their own communities, which is natural), for example. But I can't think of any that supports mass migration on the scale we're seeing to-day, and for the motives championed by our political class, which seems to be a combination of contempt for nationalism and either misplaced trust in the inherent goodness of the migrants or misguided compassion for their plight (largely created by the political class). When Aragorn issued his decrees concerning the slaves of Mordor (probably orc-folk, and lesser men reduced to an orc-like state), he gave to them the lands about Núrnen to be their home, not the green vales of Anduin or the streets of Minas Tirith!
