We are the new Vendeans, but this time, we fight for our Mother, the Catholic Church, our true homeland below, our foretaste of Heaven, so cruelly attacked from all sides by her enemies of the Modernist Revolution, who wish to destroy her very foundations as they have always been known. With our swords in hand and the love of Christ in our hearts, we fight for truth, goodness and beauty! Deus Vult!
“Rise up, Catholic youth!
“Our Fatherland is our villages, our altars, our tombs and all that our fathers loved before us. Our Fatherland is our Faith, our Land, our King.
“But what is their fatherland? Do you know what it is? They want to destroy customs, order and Tradition. Well then, what is this fatherland, without love and fidelity, that defies the past? This country of disorder and irreligion? For them the fatherland seems to be nothing more than an idea; for us it is a land. They have it in their brain; we have it under our feet, it is much more solid.
“The world they say is new is as old as the Devil himself. They want to establish it without God and say that we are supporters of superstitions…. They make me laugh! Faced with these demons reborn century after century, we, gentlemen, are the youth! We are God’s youth! Fidelity’s youth!”
~François de Charette de la Contrie (2 May 1763 – 26 March 1796), one of the leaders in the Vendée (Courtesy of Rorate Caeli)
