Today is the 220th anniversary of the glorious martyrdom of His Most Christian Majesty, Louis XVI, King of France and Navarre, who was decapitated by guillotine by the satanic revolutionaries, whose diabolical frenzy and Masonic ideology of Liberalism -- which is per se based on the hatred of God, man, and the natural law -- moved to further outrages, murders, unspeakable crimes, and the martyrdoms of bishops, priests, nuns, religious brothers and monks, as well as thousands of laymen and their wives and children, all of whom were given death in return for their courageous fidelity to Our Adorable Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ, His Sacred Royalty, and the precious teachings of His Church, the Ark of Salvation outside of which there is neither salvation nor the remission of sins.
What bad example (his weakness and liberal tendencies) and poor judgment shadowed King Louis's reign was amply repaired by his manly and Catholic example in death, to which he had resigned himself. Here are his last words, recorded by the English priest who absolved him and accompanied him to the scaffold : "I die innocent of all the crimes laid to my charge; I pardon those who have occasioned my death; and I pray to God that the blood you are going to shed may never be visited on France." Pope Pius VI called him a martyr. Do not forget to honour him and pray to him today, especially for the easy yoke and light burden of the integral Kingship of Christ over all societies and nations and for the liberty and exaltation of our Holy Mother the Church, that these might be restored by legitimate and lawful sovereign authority (which the French Republics, bien sûr, do not enjoy) such that the world can repose in a just peace.
Vive le roy !
