  • Just now I received an email from a friend and it surprised me. I wonder what other people here think about it? 

     A letter from Br. Alexis Bugnolo -- Ordo Militaris Catholicus

     



    Quote
    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
    .
    Which of us could not have been shocked to our soul at the brutal atrocities committed against Christians and innocents in recent weeks: in Egypt, London and Manchester. So many lives snuffed out by bombs and knives and guns, for no other reason they were Christians or considered to be "Crusaders" by evil Islamic Jihadis.
    As is becoming increasingly evident, many world leaders have preferred to blind themselves to the thread of Islamic Jihad, than react like human beings with compassion and righteous anger to take steps to prevent these attacks.
    .
    In addition, it was recently revealed by the publication of the cabals of the foreign ministry of Saudi Arabia, than that nation and Israel have been in an alliance by all means to destroy Syria, and thus have actively sought to support the rebels in Syria or do nothing against them, even though they along with ISIS are guilty of slaughtering 10s of thousands of Christians and destroying hundreds of churches. An alliance, to which as a US citizen I am ashamed to admit, the US joined under the previous administration and to which it in part still participates.
    .
    After the brutal slaughter of Father Jacques Hamel last summer, I found myself in the Church of St Francis of Assisi at Bagnoregio, Italy, contemplating how much our civil leaders have done next to nothing to defend Catholics from slaughter by Jihadis. I asked the Lord what to do, how the world needed a Christian military force to defend His people, and it seemed to me that He said to me:  Go and gather them up you will find them.

    .
    During the last 10 months, with a small band of volunteers at my side on social media, I have been pleading day and night for the funds, men and land to put together, in a legal way, such a force.

    .
    Now more than ever, this inspiration appears to be so necessary for the modern world. And Our Lord in His Providence has spread this desire to hearts round the world. We now have volunteers actively seeking making foundations of the Order in Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Australia. We have also begun a security initiative for the people of London.
    .

    The Order is in reality an apostolate, which by joining together in allied organizations round the world, seeks to build a sort of international fortress against Christian persecution.   In such an organization, we are inspired by the Catholics of old, who at the call of Blessed Pope Urban II, left family and country to go overseas to defend their brothers in Christ whom they had never met, and to do this in penance for their own sins, and out of love of Christ Crucified who said, Greater Love No Man Hath, than to lay down his life for his friends!
    .

    There is still great work ahead of us, despite of the fact that the Order has grown from 1 little Franciscan brother on his knees to more than 90 volunteers, donors and members world wide.
    .
    Our current projects, in addition to the London Anti-Terrorism Self Defence Centre campaign which, God willing will begin shortly (see the team member page for UK residents at http://ukdefenceleague.blogspot.com/ ) is the opening of our HQ in Montana (we had to move to avoid WY conflict in law against PMCs with membership orgs), opening a Basic Combat Training Camp, getting licensed to export defense and security services from the US Department of State, and putting together a training team for Basic Training, from among the several veterans who have contacted us and are willing to work with out organization.

    .
    The work ahead requires above all that we join together in prayers. For this reason I have had 3 priests offer the Mass for the intentions of all of the members and donors and volunteers, and will continue to do so on each feast day of one of our many Patron saints (https://www.ordo-militaris.us/our-patron-saints/).
    .
    Second, our greatest need at present is to grow membership, because we need many more members than 80, to support the soldiers we intend to send on missions of defense and security, or to found centres for anti terrorism defense in different countries.

    .
    Here, I would thank all of you who have made a donation or already become a member. If you have only made a donation, think of also helping with a monthly pledge (https://www.ordo-miltiaris.us/donate) we have membership levels which start at $1 a month and go up to $1000 a month, each of which can be pledged on line with our Donations page.

    .
    For this reason, the need to expand membership, I ask if everyone make it a point this year to talk to friends and family about the Order, and to commit to recruiting new members each week.

    .
    Third, as we compile lists of veterans who want to work with us and raw recruits who want to train with us to revive the spirit of the Crusaders of old in the Christian military profession, we need to do what we can to raise the funds to outfit and train them.  Basic equipment, supplies and transport will cost $10000 per soldier for even simple security missions lasting 3 months. 
    .
    Finally, for those who have been blessed by the Lord and want to put some of that to work in defending Christ's little sheep, I ask you to take a look at our investments page (https://www.ordo-militaris.us/invest) and download for 1 penny, one or both of our stock prospectuses which are dedicated to capital investments for HQ and properties which the Order can use to operate and train men before sending them on missions.  For our training camp we need at least housing for 20 men, while they train at facilities in the area, or about 300 to 500 acres if we want to do everything on our own land. Our own base would require in addition about $50000 in equipment.

    .
    At present after all the legal expenses, website costs and office expenses, the Order Militaris Inc. in MT has only about $6000 in the bank and monthly pledges totally about $1100. We have sold 2 shares of Y class stock. So we are yet a long way off from being ready to send out on mission even small groups of soldiers, BUT with your help we can get closer to that goal and reach it!

    .
    Be assured of my prayers and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, for heeding my calls to help Christians defend themselves against slaughter. LET US OPEN OUR HEARTS IN PITY FOR THEM by joining in this great work of Mercy for them!

    .
    In Christ Jesus, may He bless each of you, forever.

    .
    Sincerely in Christ,

    Br. Alexis Bugnolo

    Who knows, depending on how things go over the next several months, I might seriously consider joining!
    If this is for real, what joy it brings to read these words!

    One of the best places for them to get started up right now is Poland. They have a LOT of independent militias - which, when ready become an extension of the military- training and drilling all over the place, mostly comprised of young men (even those still in school). They are rather popular, so I would presume recruits and support would not be lacking. 

    I've heard Russia is picking up on the trend too...

  • You best know who these other organizations are!!  You are going see a lot of this.  Don't get me wrong, it is horrendous blood shed.  And know this, Christians are not aways catholics.  

    There are organizations that can take you for your money, and pocket it, can abuse it.  Just take one: Catholic Charities and you know the dioceses are going to get into this BIG Time.  And know this, Dioceses are Masons.  You best really do your homework before jumping on the band wagon.

  • I went to both sites. The funding takes on others, Incorporation.  correct?  I was disturbed by UKDefense League.  It states on that site that The Centre will be funded by Crowdfounder campaigning, correct.  I found that Crowdfounder campaigning is into many projects, one being HIV and condoms and such.

    I went to the other site with Brother Alexis Bugnolo and I read for awhile to get the idea of training soldiers and such, is that correct?  I need to see who the other corporations or partnerships are.  Very hard getting that on this site.

    I will continue to search.

  • Two web sites appeared in the letter.  Then I leave the post and come back and the www. sites are not in the letter.  I don't know why, but it is like first you see it then you don't. ?

  • Songbird, the two websites that appear in the letter are the same organisation - one being the U.K. offshoot of the U.S. original. 
    .
    You need to scroll down on the right side of the quote box to see the whole of the letter. The hiddden part contains the website.

  • If this organization is real and legitimate, I would be interested in promoting it.  Do they train fighters?  Or are they all talk?

    Ask them! I know no more than you do. But I knew you'd be interested.

  • United Kingdom Defense League is funded by Crowdfunder campaigning.  On their site I looked for typed in the League full name and it gave no results.  Now, this Crowdfunder is a very large group.  It takes care of many groups and that includes anybody like Pro-choice and such.  Just be sure they do have your group listed and to make sure your money is going into the right till, if you know what I mean.

    We have also begun a security initiative...



    What, exactly, is a "security initiative?"  They say this a lot in their mission.  I'm currently unable to watch through their mission videos.  However, I was able to watch the first few minutes of one.  The monk carried on about Queen Elizabeth and English Recusant musical compositions.  Seemed...uninspiring.  Are they serious or not, I wonder.

  • My opinion is that while the gesture is noble and possibly could provide pockets of a temporary stay, it is ultimately futile.

    What scares me is that what is going on over there now is coming to the USA, hopefully not in my lifetime.

  • Our family being military for 20 years, we see good thoughts, but futile.  When there is war, countries can decide who comes in and who can flee. Then what?
