Today is the feast of St. Venantius, truly a saint for our times. What an inspirational example of masculine virtue and love of Christ – by a fifteen year old kid, no less.
Here is the MILD version of his glorious martyrdom just from the Wiki page:
“Before Venantius was killed (by decapitation), he was scourged, burned with flaming torches, hanged upside-down over a fire, had his teeth knocked out and his jaw broken, thrown to the lions, and tossed over a high cliff.”
In other words, we all need to MAN UP.
Kinda makes publicly arguing that humanity needs to be coerced into an obviously toxic injection containing or tested on murdered infants under the false narrative that Boomers don’t catch the merely re-named flu or cold seem just slightly… deplorable by comparison, no?
As Michael Linden said so beautifully in his takedown of the de Mattei heresies, maybe, just maybe, if your choice in this world comes down to dying or getting a dead baby injection, the Divine Will is that you die. Ya think? How many excusal arguments could have been made, and almost certainly were made to St. Venantius to “justify” escaping his torture and death?
If Mr. de Mattei and Prof. Seifert have totally folded in the face of a treatable seasonal chest-crud virus with a 99.97% survival rate BEFORE Ivermectin, what do you imagine these men would do in the face of the kind of death that St. Venantius MANFULLY embraced?
I think the question answers, or perhaps better said, HAS ALREADY answered itself.
St. Venantius, pray for us.
Lord Jesus Christ, ascended to the Right Hand of the Father, have mercy on us and on your Holy Church.
**I use “Mr.” before Roberto de Mattei’s name because he only has a bachelors degree. While I despise credentialism, I also recognize the “stolen valor” dynamic of assuming academic honorifics without the actual degrees. I, personally, embrace my status as an “unlettered laynothing”. Gravitas and credibility do not require specious honorific titles.
