Happy Feast Day of the Kingship of Christ — Immortale Dei (Encyclical on the Christian Constitution of States), Pope Leo XIII: “First and foremost, it is the duty of all Catholics worthy of the name ……. to endeavour to bring back all civil society to the pattern and form of Christianity which We have described.”
Tens of thousands, mainly young people and young families, marched through Warsaw yesterday, 11th November, on Poland’s Independence Day, appealing to the Holy Mother of God to guide and protect Poland from her enemies.
The annual march, organised by Ruch Narodowy, the National Movement, was attended by 50,000 people according to the civil authorities. The organisers calculated the attendance to be considerably more.
At 10.00am the official programme began with the organisers encouraging everyone to attend the traditional Mass before gathering at the Roman Dmowski roundabout for public recitation of the rosary. At 2.00pm the President of the March for Independence Committee, Robert Bąkiewicz, pictured here with his rosary, announced the official start of the March and amidst the red glare of hundreds of flares and dense smoke rising to the heavens the march set off on its route towards the National Stadium.

“We firmly hope, however, that the Feast of the Kingship of Christ, which in future will be yearly observed, may hasten the return of society to our loving Saviour. It is the duty of Catholics to do all they can to bring about this happy result. Many of these, however, have neither the station in society nor the authority which should belong to those who bear the torch of truth. This state of things may perhaps be attributed to a certain slowness and timidity in good people, who are reluctant to engage in conflict or oppose but a weak resistance; thus the enemies of the Church become bolder in their attacks. But if the faithful were generally to understand that it behoves them ever to fight courageously under the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they would strive to win over to their Lord those hearts that are bitter and estranged from Him, and would valiantly defend His rights.
Moreover, the annual and universal celebration of the Feast of the Kingship of Christ will draw attention to the evils which anti-clericalism has brought upon society in drawing men away from Christ, and will also do much to remedy them. Whilst nations insult the beloved name of our Redeemer by suppressing all mention of it in their conferences and parliaments, we must all the more loudly proclaim His kingly dignity and power, all the more universally affirm His rights.”
Pope Pius XI, Quas primas, 1925
“Christianity is Europe’s last hope….. The danger we face comes from the West, from politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris.”
– Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán
Pole and Hungarian — two brothers,
good for saber and for glass.
Both courageous, both lively,
May God bless them.
“Christianity is Europe’s last hope,” affirms the Prime Minister of Hungary.
“The danger we face comes from the West, from politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris,” he adds.
” ‘Faith,’ says St. James, ‘unless it has works, is dead in itself’. (James 2: 17-26) The same applies to charity. (James 2: 13-17)
Faith and charity must be accompanied by action, which should always be inspired by the interior life”.
– From ‘Work and Worry’, Cardinal Bacci
“From the back cover of the third edition of They Have Uncrowned Him
‘It is of immense importance that English-speaking readers should read, mark, learn and inwardly digest this book of Archbishop Lefebvre, They Have Uncrowned Him.
The Archbishop here denounces in depth the great plague of modern times, which has virtually destroyed Christian civilisation and is now wrecking the Catholic Church. That plague is Liberalism, or man’s freeing himself with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his strength and with all his mind, from God.
Where did Liberalism come from? How is it so strong? How has it penetrated even into the Catholic Church? Alas, there is in English very little literature available on the subject. This is because England is steeped in Liberalism and has spread her liberal influences throughout the world, especially the English-speaking world, ever since that terrible 16th century, when King Henry VIII began to split the Church of England from the Church in England, and the mass of Englishmen followed in his footsteps, putting earthly king in front of Heavenly King, patriotism (so-called) in front of religion, country in front of God.
The problem extends far wider now than just poor England. The Church of Rome is being split from the true Church in Rome, as Our Lady of La Salette said it would. Despite her warning, Liberalism and Catholicism is confused in millions of Catholic minds.
In this book, Archbishop Lefebvre puts the crown firmly back on the head of our Heavenly King, Jesus Christ. Thank God, English-speaking readers have made this third edition necessary. All is not lost. May they make fourth, fifth and sixth editions necessary’.
