"The honour of Christ requires it, EVERYONE TO AVIGNON"

As I post this, at 2pm British Summer Time, loyal French Catholics are gathering in Avingon to defend the honour of Christ against the publicly-funded blasphemy of the image of Christ in urine.

As Professor Bernard Debré says of France:
We should be proud of our roots. Christianity has dotted the country with pearls: Gothic cathedrals, Romanesque chapels, sacred culture, works of sacred art ... It is Christianity that gave France its soul, its strength. "France, eldest daughter of the Church" is a claim. "France heir of Christianity": it is a fact.

Here is the call to arms of
Alain Escada, secrétaire général de Civitas:

"At the heart of the city of Avignon, a photograph of a crucifix immersed in a glass of urine is presented in an exhibition subsidized by public funds. Although this outrageous image, which is deeply offensive to our faith, was banned in several countries like the U.S. and Australia, it continues, in the former city of the Popes, to attack publicly the Son of God. Therefore, in order to demand the removal of this image, we invite you to join us in large numbers to walk on Saturday, April 16 at 15: 00 from the square of the Palace of the Popes.

Let us
accompany Jesus Christ on the Way of the Cross. If today His name and image are mocked because we have placed the light under a bushel, who tomorrow will be able to defend the honour of the Son of God?"

Who indeed?

"Comes up along a winding road the noise of the Crusade.
Strong gongs groaning as the guns boom far,
Don John of Austria is going to the war." Lepanto - G.K. Chesterton
