Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
This one is going to be hard to top. It’s just so macho. This is a video that came across my desktop of a Corpus Christi procession yesterday. Now remember, Our Lord is PHYSICALLY PRESENT in the monstrance on the float under the canopy. This is truly a royal procession, and the King is Jesus Christ, again, REALLY PHYSICALLY PRESENT. The Eucharist is NOT a symbol. It is really, truly, physically Jesus Christ, God Almighty.
Now, in the video at the 0:45 second mark you will hear a tremendous noise. Bang! Bang! Bang! That is firecrackers, which are 100% emblematic of … wait for it … you know what I’m about to say … oh, yeah. A GUN SALUTE. The only way this could be any better is if it was done 100% old school, which used to be the case, and the state provided a full military gun salute. This used to be done, ever since the advent (I would guess) of the breech loading rifle. Before that, the military salute in Corpus Christi processions was done with bayonets and/or swords.
You know, back in the good old days before the entirety of Western Civilization was reduced to a quivering, gelatinous pile of effeminate, self-loathing garbage juice. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The “Kathys” of the world and their castrated male lapdogs will be the death of us all.
Heaven forfend that we should acknowledge that Jesus Christ the King is True God and True MAN, much less relish in His Glorious Sovreignty or engage in any TRIUMPHALISM thereto.
We need gun salutes for Our Lord. Preferably with bayonets. But for now, we will be giddy with delight at the emblematic firecrackers. YAY!!!! Viva Cristo Rey!!!! Que viva!!!! BANG! BANG! BANG!
