I have been and am, sadly, prone to all of the Seven Deadly Sins at various times in my life, and all too resistant to the Seven Holy Virtues! Of your charity, please pray for me, a sinner.
As an Anglican priest-friend of mine put it, when I posted this on my Facebook page,
“We don’t talk about these much, anymore, do we. Too bad. We all need them, as guides to behavior, and most of us don’t even know them.“
Amen. We surely do! And Lent is a great time to get back in touch with them! I’m going to try to, myself.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Glory in grey!
With everything else that has been going on, both in my own life and in the wider world, it is almost – but not quite – possible to lose sight of the fact that the assault on Southern history, heritage, culture, and iconography continues. The assault on the Confederacy – which did not end in 1865, but merely went dormant for a while, and now continues under other means – is only one front in the larger war against Western civilization, but it is an important one.
The iconography, and the example, of the Confederacy, representing brilliant and glorious resistance against a centralizing and despotic tyranny, continues to inspire and give hope to untold millions, not only in this nation but around the world. Is it any wonder that the proponents of globalism – whether corporate or governmental, or the diffuse and many-headed hydra of cultural Marxism – is determined to do all they can to stamp out that inspiration?
But they will fail. Because the spirit of the Confederacy is the spirit of human freedom, liberty, and self-determination – among the good gifts of a benevolent Creator – and though the embers of that spirit may gutter low and even appear to be smothered for a time, they cannot be wholly extinguished. And, in time, some breath of circumstance will blow upon them, and stir them back into glorious flame!
God will vindicate!
