Pax Christi, Not Pax Americana

by Thomas A. Droleskey

This article will be posted just about forty-eight hours before many of us will gather in different traditional Catholic venues for the Christmas carols that precede Christmas Midnight Mass. Our four weeks of Advent preparing for the birth of the Infant King, Christ the King, are nearing their end. Christmas joy will be upon as as we hear these words proclaimed at Midnight Mass:


[1] And it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world should be enrolled. [2] This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria. [3] And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city. [4] And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David, [5] To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child.

[6] And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. [7] And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. [8] And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. [9] And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. [10] And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:

[11] For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. [12] And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. [13] And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: [14] Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. (Luke 2: 1-14.)


The peace of the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, is to men of good will, not to all men. The blessings of the peace of Our Infant King are not bestowed upon those who persist in sin unrepentantly as such individuals are in a state of warfare against Him and thus against the very end for which they were to created, namely, the share the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven.

Similarly, the blessings of the peace of Our Infant King are not bestowed upon nations whose leaders make warfare upon the binding precepts contained in the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law and who seek to export such warfare abroad in the delusional "hope" of creating some kind of "peace" based upon their own nationalistic and/or ideological predilections. It is Pax Christi, not Pax Americana.

Readers of this site know that I carry no brief for United States Representative Dr. Ron Paul (Republican-Texas). The reasons for this have been outlined in numerous articles (see Ron Paul, Meet Saint Paul, God's Rights or States Rights?, The Mania Produced by False Premises, Showing Libertarianism's True Biases, Movements to a Dead End, Now and for All Eternity, Those Who Trust In Mere Mortals and just one more for the sake of brevity, It's Still a World of Sisyphuses.) No one who believes that members of a legislative body at the state level can decide for themselves whether to permit or restrict or prohibit baby-killing under cover of the civil law according to the "will of the people" in a state is any kind of champion of the Social Reign of Christ the King.

That having been noted, however, Dr. Paul takes a very courageous set of positions in opposition to the neoconservative, pro-Zionist, American "exceptionalist" foreign and military policy of almost every major American politician, whether of the false opposite of the naturalist "left" or the false opposite of the naturalist "right." For this, of course, the neoconservative (Talmudic) establishment in the Republican Party is throwing a conniption fit of epic proportions even though Paul has little chance to win the 2012 Republican presidential nomination even if his strong grassroots organizational effort pulls off a victory in the Iowa Caucuses on Tuesday, January 3, 2012. Support for Paul is simply not that great amongst the Republican electorate nationwide.

Undaunted, however, the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth is pretty intense amongst the Talmudists at William Kristol's Weekly Standard and over at The Wall Street Journal, where a columnist named Dorothy Rabinowitz, who is a Pulitzer Award winner and a member of the Journal's editorial board, has raked Ron Paul over the coals for such "offenses" as blaming the policies of the United States of America for the attacks that took place on American soil on Tuesday, September 11, 2011, and for noting that some in the administration of former President George Walker Bush took glee in the aftermath of those attacks as they believed that they provided a pretext to get rid of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein once and for all (just by the way, of course, have you seen that the great "victory" the United States of America has won for the Iraqi people and for "stability" Middle East is not working out very well?--Blasts Rock Baghdad as Political Crisis in Iraq Deepens). 

Ron Paul is not wrong about those things. Indeed, Georgii Bushus Ignoramus proclaimed shortly after the September 11, 2011, that Saddam Hussein had some responsibility for their planning and execution, saying "I just feel it in my bones." Those bones were not very reliable intelligence gatherers, sad to say for the people of Iraq and for the thousands upon thousands of those killed in Iraq in that country by the American effort to "liberate" its people, including the thousands of American military personnel and the great disruption caused to the families of hundreds of thousands more. And Ron Paul is not wrong to minimize the threat posed by a nuclear Iran as he notes that we have a nuclear Israel and a nuclear Red China and a nuclear Pakistan and a nuclear India and a nuclear Russia. He is quite correct to point out that this hysteria is just more of the same kind of war-mongering that got this country involved in the unjust and immoral invasion of Iraq. This is just too much truth for the neoconservative war hawks, steeped in their nationalistic and Talmudic mythologies, to understand or accept.

Those steeped in the mythologies of the United States of America do not want to hear about unjust wars.

Those steeped in the mythologies of the United States of America do not want to hear about the amorality of Andrew Jackson with respect to the forcible removal of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia to Oklahoma or the massacres of Indians thereafter to claim for the supposedly civilized "white man" what "belonged" to him as the Indians were shunted off to reservations, which have long been the American equivalent of the "detention centers" that the Israelis erected to imprison the Palestinians after they had been evicted from their homes following the Zionist takeover of Palestine in 1948.

Those steeped in the mythologies of the United States of America do not want to hear about the unjust nature of the Mexican-American War or the Spanish-American War, which introduced the joys of Protestant sects and Masonic lodges in formerly Catholic  lands as the forces of the American military pursued Filipino patriot Emiliano Aguinaldo, who sought to defend his land against the American invaders and colonizers after the end of the Spanish-American War.

This could go on and on and on, obviously.

No, Representative Ron Paul is not wrong to criticize American foreign and military policy. Not at all.

What Dr. Paul shares with Miss Rabinowitz, however, is their mutual rejection of the truth that there can be no true peace within and among nations without Christ the King and without Mary our Immaculate Queen. They are both just two sides of the same coin of naturalism. And this is just one among several of the reasons that I gave to a former student of mine from thirty years ago who, eager to assist me in finding employment that could pay my family's bills, suggested that I consider working for Paul's presidential campaign, which could pay me around $2500 a month to speak in various places around the nation. Nice money. I need that kind of money. That's all that it would take to pay our monthly bills and to have a little something left over for emergencies. We don't need much. No amount of money, no matter large or small, can justify speaking in defense of one who believes that the "people" get to decide whether state laws can permit or prohibit or restrict baby-killing. Sorry. That's a non-starter.

As Pope Pius XI noted in his first encyclical letter, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, issued eighty-nine years ago today, that is, on December 23, 1922, that we must be champions of the "peace of Christ in the kingdom of Christ:"


It is possible to sum up all We have said in one word, "the Kingdom of Christ." For Jesus Christ reigns over the minds of individuals by His teachings, in their hearts by His love, in each one's life by the living according to His law and the imitating of His example. Jesus reigns over the family when it, modeled after the holy ideals of the sacrament of matrimony instituted by Christ, maintains unspotted its true character of sanctuary. In such a sanctuary of love, parental authority is fashioned after the authority of God, the Father, from Whom, as a matter of fact, it originates and after which even it is named. (Ephesians iii, 15) The obedience of the children imitates that of the Divine Child of Nazareth, and the whole family life is inspired by the sacred ideals of the Holy Family. Finally, Jesus Christ reigns over society when men recognize and reverence the sovereignty of Christ, when they accept the divine origin and control over all social forces, a recognition which is the basis of the right to command for those in authority and of the duty to obey for those who are subjects, a duty which cannot but ennoble all who live up to its demands. Christ reigns where the position in society which He Himself has assigned to His Church is recognized, for He bestowed on the Church the status and the constitution of a society which, by reason of the perfect ends which it is called upon to attain, must be held to be supreme in its own sphere; He also made her the depository and interpreter of His divine teachings, and, by consequence, the teacher and guide of every other society whatsoever, not of course in the sense that she should abstract in the least from their authority, each in its own sphere supreme, but that she should really perfect their authority, just as divine grace perfects human nature, and should give to them the assistance necessary for men to attain their true final end, eternal happiness, and by that very fact make them the more deserving and certain promoters of their happiness here below.

It is, therefore, a fact which cannot be questioned that the true peace of Christ can only exist in the Kingdom of Christ -- "the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ." It is no less unquestionable that, in doing all we can to bring about the re-establishment of Christ's kingdom, we will be working most effectively toward a lasting world peace. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)

It is because no one in either of the organized crime families of naturalism recognizes this simple truth that our situation, both domestically and internationally, must continue to worsen over time. They do not recognize that the Infant King born to rule over men and nations has taught us through His Catholic Church that His peace, Pax Christi, is given only to men of good will, and those who war against Him and His Kingship by persisting in sin and/or falsehoods are His sworn enemies.

It is Pax Christi, not Pax Americana.

No one champions Christ the King today.

Not Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.

Not any of his "cardinals" or "bishops" or priests/presbyters.

Not any of the midget naturalists, each of whom is steeped in the inter-related errors Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry that manifest themselves in the anti-Incarnational civil state of Modernity and the robber baron church of Modernism that is the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

This means that we, considered fools by most others in the world, must do so, especially as we are on the precipice of the annual celebration of the Nativity of Our Infant King.


We may well admire in this wonderful wisdom of the Providence of God, Who, ever bringing good out of evil, has from time to time suffered the faith and piety of men to grow weak, and allowed Catholic truth to be attacked by false doctrines, but always with the result that truth has afterwards shone out with greater splendor, and that men’s faith, aroused from its lethargy, has shown itself more vigorous than before . . . . But if the faithful were generally to understand that it behooves them ever to fight courageously under the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they would strive to win over to their Lord those hearts that are bitter and estranged from Him, and would valiantly defend His rights. (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)



We will advance the cause of Christ the King by promoting the fulfillment of His Most Blessed Mother's Fatima Message, offering our acts of reparation for our sins and those of the whole world to His Most Sacred Heart through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We will advance the cause of Christ the King with every Rosary we pray.

We will advance the cause of Christ the King with every act of mortification we offer up to Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, every bit of humiliation and ostracism and ridicule that we suffer for Him as His totally consecrated slaves through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, every effort we make to form ourselves and our children in the crucible of love that is the Holy Cross as we spend time before Our King in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

We will advance the cause of Christ the King with the Enthroning of our homes to His Most Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and by refusing to participate in our culture of naturalism thereafter, getting rid of the television once and for all.

We will advance the cause of Christ the King by refusing to enable the careers of naturalists who hate Him and His Holy Church just as much as the Masons in Mexico and the Communists in Spain did as they put thousands upon thousands of Catholics to death as those brave martyrs exclaimed the glorious words made famous by Father Miguel Augustin Pro, S.J., as the bullets pierced his flesh on November 23, 1927:

Viva Cristo Rey!

We must remember these words that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Our King, spoke to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque:

"I will reign in spite of all who oppose Me." (quoted in: The Right Reverend Emile Bougaud. The Life of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, reprinted by TAN Books and Publishers in 1990, p. 361.)


Yes, Viva Cristo Rey!
