The New Domestic Christendom
The Christmas Coronation of Charlemagne 800 A.D.
“It is now upon you alone that the churches of Christ lean, from you alone that they await safety, from you, the avenger of crimes, guide of those who err, consoler of the afflicted, upholder of good.” So said Alcuin of York of Charlemagne, who on Christmas Day 800 A.D. was crowned the King of Christendom by Pope Leo III.
On this 1220th Christmas Day after the coronation of Charlemagne and the inauguration of Christendom I, any semblance of that Christendom has been thoroughly vanquished and definitely replaced by Satanic States and a universal anti-Christic dystopia. Thus the erstwhile Christian nations no longer have the meaning they once did, for they have apostatized, are devoid of God, and are thus illegitimate. Nostalgic ethnic sentiments and cultural romantic reenactments do not change the fact that Western countries—and most especially those that formed the bulwark of Christendom I such as France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and even the late-coming America—have not merely reverted to heathenism but are essentially and virulently anti-Christic. For these cultures have betrayed, in fact are based upon, the very rejection of the Christian heart of Western civilization, and thus are rendered virulently hostile to Christ and his people. In short, these nations and these cultures, unlike the natural law based pagans of old, are utterly irredeemable, having as their very essence an anti-Christic dynamics. This means that the third millennium is a time where Christian patriotism can no longer be properly equated with nationalism but rather only with true piety, or love and honor of God and parents. That is, a righteous patriotism then derives solely from the inseparable love of, and wholehearted allegiance to, faith and family.
Due to the new hostile sociopolitical realities, the third millennium is a time as well of new beginnings; it is a time of the clan and the small-faith community of families; and it a time when a new Christendom will be built (to the extent that it is built) solely on Christ an those clans and families. If any new Christian sociopolitical entities, even new countries, are to arise, they must arise anew and outside and beyond the demarcations of the past; outside and transcendent of the current sociopolitical powers-that-be; they must arise outside and in contradistinction to the world, the flesh, and the devil. This dawn of the third millennium requires the advent of a new Christian culture comprised of individual pastoral, that is grassroots, shoots that have made their way up among the ruins of an anti-Christic, dystopic world.
It is now, in this the third Christian age, that the lay faithful are called to grow up and out of the childhood of ages past. These faithful, these so-called “commoners” and “citizens,” are called to rise up fully mature, no longer holding onto props of the world, no longer dependent or subservient to powers and principalities, but only holding onto, dependent upon, and subservient to the Holy Cross. The third millennium is truly the age of the laity. It is the age of the laity because it is the age of the family and the imago Dei individual (the image of God as free rational-volitional beings) that comprises that family. And it is the age of the family and imago Dei individual because that family is being destroyed and the individual enslaved as never before; for in God’s economy “where sin abounds grace abounds more” (RM 5:20), the truth and good arising in direct contradiction to the prevalent falsehood and evil.
1,220 years after the Coronation of Charlemagne on Christmas day, “the whole salvation of the Church of Christ,” that is, any possibility of a new Christendom, once again resides with the laity. But this new Christendom entails not the restoring of the ancient Western monarchies (as many traditionalists whimsically espouse), but with reinforcing the only timelessly God-ordain monarchy, that of the family. A new Christendom entails not the divine rights of elite kings and royal families, but rather the divine rights of the common man and the nuclear family. And these divine rights of the common lay faithful are absolute, for they derive from the faithful’s absolute right to do their duty to God, that is, their duty to abide by both natural and divine law, and indeed divine inspiration. But make no mistake, those that so abide by natural and divine law are outlaws to the Satanic State; a State that as such must be militantly engaged for “the whole salvation of the Church of Christ,” and most specifically and urgently for the salvation of the domestic church that is the family.
