Society of St. James the Moor Slayer
Some priest friends have recently returned from a pilgrimage to Compostella. My one desire was that someone bring me back a statue of 'Santiago Matamoros' - St. James the Moor Slayer, the emblem of all those who refuse to bow before the idol of political correctness (and certain cultural suicide). I now have two statues. Some quotes from the great prophet, Hilaire Belloc:
"We have ....seen what was the main cause of Islam's rapid spread; a complicated and fatigued society......It is as a fact the most formidable and persistent enemy which our civilization has had.....The name of Lepanto should remain in the minds of all men with a sense of history as one of the half dozen great names in the history of the Christian world.......it has always seemed to me possible, and even probable, that here would be a resurrection of Islam and that our sons or our grandsons would see the renewal of that tremendous struggle between the Christian culture and what has been for more than a thousand years its greatest opponent."
As our society continues to grow more fatigued, I propose an online society - The 'Society of St. James the Moor Slayer' - to pray for the conversion of Islam and the re-awakening of Christendom. I suggest the Litany of Loreto at least once a week. Sign on .........
