A father speaks …..

The speech of a father at the Rome anti-lockdown demo, 5th September 2020

Watch the video at this link

Good evening Italy!
Good evening people!
Good evening free men and women!

No good evening to Zingaretti!

Someone, let’s call him a seller of news because calling him a journalist would be too flattering, asked me:

“Castellino, why are you in the square today?”
Because I am a father of three children, because I had the balls to have three children.

“Castellino, why are you in the square?”
Because I’m a worker and because, unlike you, I struggle with 1,500 euros a month.

“Why are you against the lockdown?”
Because your nefarious economic policies have starved me and my family.

Shame on you liars!
Criminals, crooks, sell-outs!

“Castellino, why are you in the square?”
Because I am a free man.
Because I don’t have chains.
Because I don’t want to wear a muzzle.
Because I want to breathe freely.
Because I want to be heard!
Because I want to demonstrate!
Because I want to hug those I love!
Because I want to walk hand in hand with my children, with friends, and with all of you!

They incited violence against us, an attack against the square.
Shame on these gentlemen.

These gentlemen, today as yesterday, are afraid of the organic Italy, of the Italy that works, of the Italy that is not servile, of the productive Italy.

Of the Italy that has faith, of Christian and Catholic Italy.
Of real Italy, of Italy waving the tricolor.

“Castellino what colour do you have?”
Here is my colour: Green, white and red!
The colour of my father, the colour of my grandfather, the colour of my son.

Do you know why my people and I are here?
I will not mention the name of my people.
Sellers of news!
I’m not giving you this advantage!

My people have their eyes turned towards the sun and they are much better than you sellers of news!

My people look towards the sun and have deep faith, and they will kneel only before God.

My people fell in love with this square, because this square is anti-ideological, plural, situationist, interventionist and is not afraid of differences.

And as in Berlin she is ready to fight, to fight for her land and her compatriots.

And above all, this square is free and more mature than the entire political class. Right and left!

This square is not afraid to say that the enemies of man are called Soros and Bill Gates, they are called Obama and Clinton and that the friends of free peoples are called Trump and Putin and that today the national flags, all of them, fight against a single enemy: the New World Order!

And the legitimacy to be here, in this square, has been given to us by this free people and by those who for decades have fought on the streets of Rome, Italy and Europe.

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.
Against globalism, against globalization, shedding our blood and paying with our freedom.

LONG LIVE ITALY

Rome will not know Easter without Christ

In Rome today, a former trustee of The Saint George Educational Trust is leading Romans to St. Peter’s Square to demand the public freedom of the faithful to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and to receive the Sacraments of the Church.

Christus vincit!  Christus regnat!  Christus imperat!

For Life without Compromise

” We ask politicians and civil society to protect life, without compromise, and to put it back at the centre of the public debate ,” says Virginia Coda Nunziante, president of the organising committee of the Italian Marcia per la Vita.

Tens of thousands are expected in Rome, today, for its 9th annual March for Life.

“There are already so many participants, as is the case every year, that it is difficult to make a precise and complete list [of supporting organisations], which would be too long. Most secular associations in defence of  life will participate in the march in an official way. Plus we have many important bishops associating with us who will carry a fundamental and precise message on the protection of life. There will also be important politicians who will march with us, but the latter will be in the streets and not on the stage because the primary objective of the March is to send a message to politics, not vice versa.”

‘The People of Life’ have a candidate for Roman Mayor

Alfredo Iorio Roma March for Life 8th May 2016

More than thirty-thousand people, many of them Romans, made their presence felt at the March of Life in Rome on 8th May. On the Facebook of Il Popolo della Vita – ‘The People of Life’ we learn that only one candidate for Roman Mayor in the forthcoming elections of 5th June supported the March of Life.

“The mayoral candidate for the city of Rome Alfredo Iorio on the March of Life 2016, to always be here for the defence of Catholic Tradition and non-negotiable values….. too bad all the other candidates for mayor of the capitol; you were absent at the rally”!

The Path to Rome

Hilaire Belloc’s famous book The Path to Rome records both a physical and spiritual journey to the heart of Christendom for it gives expression and relates purpose to things far deeper than the physical experience of a mere travelogue.

Considered by Belloc as his greatest work it is a profound record of the walking pilgrimage that he undertook to the Eternal City in order to fulfill a vow he had made, and to travel through great chunks of Europe that the Christian Faith had saved, shaped and blessed.

The Path to Rome calls everyone in this world without exception. But when heading towards Rome one must set out with the right intentions or it will end very badly in this life or the next.
