“ And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities.” – [Apocalypse (Revelation) 18:4-5]
The Church today is in eclipse. Sheep look for their shepherds in vain. We as Catholic men and women are as sheep without a shepherd. Our vicar appointed by Christ until the end of time is nowhere to be found, and his seat is vacant. Our visible head is gone, and we function as does the decapitated chicken, flailing aimlessly in search of some semblance of certainty and order. This is the reality of the Church’s visible structures in the modern world. Truly, the End Times are upon us. Our Lady warned us at La Salette that “Rome would become the seat of the Antichrist” and that “the Church will be in eclipse.” After “Pope” John XXIII usurped the Papal throne and began his Masonic “reform” that culminated in “Pope” Paul VI’s so-called “Second Vatican Council”, the Great Apostasy foretold in the New Testament began. We’ve had two signs of the End Times already, viz. The preaching of the Gospel to the whole world and a great falling away from the faith (a la aforementioned Great Apostasy). All we await now is the final sign and fulfilment of La Salette: the man of sin, the man of perdition, the Antichrist.
What to do? It sures seem like there isn’t much we can do. As laymen, we do not have the authority to convene a conclave and elect a Pope (as some ridiculous men have decided to schism and do). The reality of the position commonly known as sedevacantism (sede being Latin for “seat” and vacante being Latin for “vacant”) not being widely believed enough to allow for the Church to elect a new head, we at the moment are left with the Deposit of Faith and our own intuition to guide ourselves. Of course, we must pray for the Holy Ghost’s guidance in these most testing of times, but practically speaking, we pray as if everything depended upon God but act as if everything depended upon ourselves, as Saint Augustine of Hippo put it. Certainly our number one priority must be an autodidactic rigour in our daily lives to come to a full grasp, as much as that is possible depending on our individual ability, of the orthodoxy and tradition of the Faith. Secondly, after we feel an assurance in this knowledge and have a firm conviction that we possess “the way, the truth and the life”, it is our obligation to evangelize our fellow Catholics to snatch them away from the blind men leading them into the pit. But after that? Well, the best anyone can do after that is continue to spread the truth and erect communities of the faithful around the United States. These communities must be ready to weather the storm that we here at Christos Culture have come to title “the Collapse” in order to keep the Faith alive and orthodox after the erosion and demolition of the Modern World. Anything outside of this is folly, vanity of vanities, futile. After all, as the Book of Ecclesiastes says, “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is all man.” Christ tells us to first seek the Kingdom of God, and Saint Paul gives us the model attitude in his epistle to the Phillipians:
“Furthermore I count all things to be but loss for the excellent knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord; for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but as dung, that I may gain Christ: And may be found in him, not having my justice, which is of the law, but that which is of the faith of Christ Jesus, which is of God, justice in faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable to his death, If by any means I may attain to the resurrection which is from the dead.”
What I laid out above may ring a bell to some of our more intellectually astute readers. It drips with the idea of Guenon’s “intellectual elite” and Julius Evola’s concept of apoliteia, typified in his book Ride the Tiger. The one thing we know is that insanity is expecting different results from a repeated, identical procedure. This is the lesson we can learn from all the Champions of the Fascist Worldview: stopping hitting your head against the wall. As much as there is a ginormous chasm in belief and thought between us and the degenerate occultist Vincent Snyder (aka “Rape”, the guy who used to run Atomwaffen Division), I find his article “The Movementarian Menace” to be spot on in this regard. Rather than being a call to inactivity, it is a call to common sense. People like Dylann Roof, Robert Bowers, Brenton Tarrant and various other “Lone Wolves’ may be sources of inspiration or even hope that not everyone is blind and cowardly, but their actions accomplish next to nil in the grand scheme of things. They trade their lives for the lives of hoodlum Negroes, Jews and hodgies and get next to no return on investment, outside of the off chance that, at best, someone copycats them, and at worst, enshrines them in chan culture. Mason said pointedly that he isn’t afraid to pay the price, but the price better be worth paying. As of yet, if there has been any time where the price was worth paying, it has come and gone. All that awaits us now is the Collapse, the coming of the Antichrist, and the Final Judgement. Where will you be when Christ comes “as a thief in the night?”
Stay smart, stay sane, and please, for your own sake, don’t do anything stupid.
“May we not be found fallen and idle, but watching and upright in activity, ready to accompany Him into the Joy and divine palace of His Glory…” – St. Basil the Great
Hail Christ the King, and Hail Victory!
