CHRIST THE KING AND THE MODERN WORLD By Patricius Anthony TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Internet Site E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Web: http://www.traditio.com Copyright 2015 P. Anthony. Reproduction prohibited without authorization. Last revised: 10/22/15
The last Sunday of October has been triumphantly designated by the Catholic Church to celebrate the divine and temporal Kingship of Christ. Not only the Church but individuals and all collective entities are duty bound to acknowledge and worship their King since Christ is Sovereign over all creation as the Gradual of the Mass of the day so rightly proclaims: "He shall rule from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. And all kings of the earth shall adore Him: all nations shall serve Him."
Despite the obligations to their Redeemer, mankind and the gang of usurpers who have taken over the Church will largely ignore this most important day which in the Newchurch has been unceremoniously transferred to the last Sunday of November. Pope Pius XI, who promulgated it, did so partly to offset "Reformation Day," the event that tragically began the disintegration of Christendom and, thus, unleashed the myriad of moral, social, economic, and political problems that now plague the planet.
It would be hard to imagine a Western world dedicated to the Kingship of Christ that would allow a swarm of mostly Muslims to invade and occupy large sections of what was once consecrated Christian land. Instead, a Western world dedicated to the principles of Christ the King would be driving the Infidel not only from European soil but out of the holy ground upon which the Savior of the world preached, suffered, died and gloriously rose from the dead.
Not only should Palestine and its surroundings be returned to its rightful heirs, but a true Christian militancy in service to its King would seek to recover the lands long ago lost to the Mohammedans in North Africa, Asia Minor, and beyond, which had been civilized by ancient Rome and its emperors, providing the framework for later Christian evangelization and conversion to take place.
Nor would a Western world under the rule of Christ be facing a demographic nightmare, which the recent Muslim invasion has again brought to the fore. Instead, such a world would reflect a Christian natural order where abortion, divorce, homosexuality, and contraception would be anathema. Likewise, the crazed and societal wrecking idea of feminism, which perverts the proper role of women in society, would also be condemned.
Naturally, state power in a world under Christ's suzerainty would be severely limited, as it was during the Christian era. With the destruction of Christendom, however, the democratic state, supposedly controlled and subservient to "the people," has become an omnipotent deity. With the true God ignored and His Church relegated to an insignificant role in society, the modern state can now police, judge, and interfere in every aspect of its citizens' lives while it can expropriate and confiscate vast amounts of private property and wealth without the impunity of a higher power.
Western societies that live under the benevolent rule of Christ the King would also not be in the throes of an ongoing economic depression and impending financial collapse. All of the modern economies are based on debt, paper money, and central banking. These features are what the secular nation state, which emerged after the collapse of Christendom, used to secure its hegemony. However, the nation-state's dominance is approaching its end, and its demise will have some grizzly consequences.
The most conspicuous and, therefore, damning neglect of Christ's divine and temporal Kingship is from the very institution that He founded, the once Catholic Church.
While the "institutional Church," founded in the Vatican II Anti-Council (1962-1965), has long been taken over by Modernists, its recent stewardship under the Marxist buffoon, Jorge Bergoglio, has been lowered to depths of depravity, corruption, and scandal never before seen. Not only has Newchurch long ago jettisoned traditional doctrine but it is now openly and willfully renouncing Catholic moral dictates.
There has been no finer refutation of Christ's Kingship and His decrees in regard to the natural and moral law than Bergoglio's infamous quip about the vilest of perversions, "Who am I to judge?"
The various crises facing Western civilization ultimately stem not from wrongheaded political or economic ideas, but from false theological beliefs. The most damaging is the rejection of the undeniable truth that Christ is God and King not only in Heaven but also on earth. Moreover, the only way that for the seemingly insurmountable temporal issues to be solved and for man to reach his ultimate end is for the world to acknowledge and pledge complete fidelity to its Divine King.
