For those lost in the destruction,
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
The Legion of St.
Louis has for its aim the permeation of society with the Faith, the molding
of the Social Order according to Catholic Truth, and the reestablishment
of temporal authority in its proper place in submission to, not triumph
over, Our Lord.
will strive for this general vision in three specific ways:
1) Uniting Catholic
men ideologically around the teachings of Fr. Fahey and the Distributists,
as they possessed the most coherent vision of how to conform all aspects
of public and social life to Catholic principles. We seek to accomplish
this aim via education and vigorous propaganda
concerning the essentials of doctrine, its implementation in the temporal
order, and frequent analysis/commentaries on the modern situation.
2) The implementation
in the members' personal lives, insofar as is possible given the constraints
of circumstances, of the Social Teachings of the Church as adapted to
our modern situation (i.e., practicing in #2 what we preach in #1).
3) The diffusion
of our way of life, as laid out in #1 and practiced in #2, insofar
as the Lord allows. We envision the eventual setup of small communities
where the Social Doctrine can be lived and where Our Lord can reign
unencumbered. These communities will not serve to cut us off from the
rest of the world. We intend to remain engaged with the world as necessary
to spread our ideological principles and to combat, within the limits
of prudence and circumstances, the Judeo-Masonic tendencies of the modern
social order. The communities will serve, however, as 1) a living
example of a Christian Temporal Order; 2) a base of operation for Catholic
militants who intend to wage the prudent yet real ideological and political
(1) war against the public and social apostasy;
and 3) a haven of sanity for the moral and mental health of integral
Our work will be
based in principle on the Revealed Truth of Our Lord as taught integrally
by the Infallible Teaching Authority of Holy Mother Church for 2014 years
and in spirit on a robust spiritual life, subject to the disposition of
each of the members, and in conformity with the traditional practices
of the Church. Regarding the spiritual life, we read the Soul of the
Apostolate not as a condemnation of action, but as a reminder to us,
who take action for granted, that our activities will be blessed with
good fruit insofar as militants are filled with love of Our Lord and Zeal
for His Glory.
(1) By "political"
we mean public and social, not participation in our modern two-party farce.
