Secret societies, the scourge of the French people and the
sworn enemy of the Church of God, had long been plotting
their destructive machinations. The entire world has been
more or less poisoned by the pernicious influence of both
political and religious sects, diametrically opposed to all

epochs to suit the caprice of the moment; at one time styling
themselves Socialists, then Liberals, and again Nihilists.

in the schools of philosophy, and among the literati of the day

a volcano. But the watchful child of Carmel, with an attentive
eye to the wants of her country and the salvation of souls, raised

             covered with Blood, Sweat, dust and spittle, 

             in reparation for the crimes of communists

           blasphemers and by the profaners of His Holy

                 Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday."

The Mob is now trying their very best to sacrilegiously tear down a beautiful/Holy statue of the Catholic King, St. Louis IX, in St. Louis, MO. The Jewish press literally in "Israel", is egging it on/spreading dark anti-Catholic calumny. Google it.
