Prince of Peace

Rev. Robert Brucciani

The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel hath not known me, and my people hath not understood. (Is 1:3)

Events in 2016 have made us see more clearly how we are being oppressed by a liberal ideology, called liberalism, which is ultimately a rebellion against God.


Liberalism is an attempt by man to “liberate” himself from the order that God made: liberate himself from faith and liberate himself from morals, liberate himself from truth (revealed or reasoned) and liberate himself from the laws of both nature and divinely constituted authority.

Liberalism is of course madness. How can a sane man say, “It is absolutely true that there is no absolute truth"? Or, “You are completely free as long as you think and do whatever I tell you"? The liberals refuse to accept the first principal of reason, without which all thought tends to the absurd. The first principle of reason is, “It is impossible for a thing to be and not to be at the same time and in the same way.” Otherwise stated, “It is impossible for something to be true and false at the same time and in the same way.” The idea that everyone can have their own truth is absurd and will only end in the tyranny of the strongest.

Our dear Rev. Lindstrom, in moments of acute consternation, is often known to shake his head, roll his eyes and say, “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.” This ancient Greek observation is entirely appropriate when applied to the liberals. Satan wishes them to suffer forever in hell, and so he makes them mad.

Self-policing tyranny

The liberals do the opposite of liberate, they enslave. The liberal new-world order has created a tyrannical system which is self-policing. Woe betide those who avail themselves of freedom of speech to proclaim the truth that Jesus Christ is the unique Saviour of the world, that there are inviolable laws of God, both revealed and natural: they will experience the full force of its oppressive armoury of judgment, censor and punishment.

The evil totalitarian system of the Soviet Union used fear to govern, the new-world order liberals use political correctness. It is an impressive system: nurturing liberal ideology in academia, in lobby groups, in government, in schools, in the media, in sport—in short, in every walk of life, even religion—with the effect of either brainwashing or morally bludgeoning the mass of men to subscribe to a worldview dictated by atheists, satanists, murderers and perverts.

Take for example the pro-abortion lobby. They have shown their power in the media by their violent reproach of those who want to make the murder of unborn children more difficult. The horror of abortion is completely ignored and the contradictions in their arguments—based upon "rights" and "compassion"—are never challenged. The mass of men just shrug their shoulders and return to their consumer lifestyles. The French state, in their liberal enlightenment, have gone so far as to ban pro-life websites.

Then there is the LGBT lobby. These are people who define themselves by their vice. The government is championing their cause to the extent of actively corrupting children at school and even having them pumped with sex-changing hormones or subjecting them to surgical mutilation. It is pure evil.

Regrettably, the power of political correctness extends even into the corridors of the Church. A recent, well-informed article in The Guardian (17 December 2016), entitled 'For God’s sake Pope Francis, don’t retire. The World needs you', points to the success of new-world-order liberalism in instrumentalising even the Pope himself.

In fact, most members of the Church have fallen under the spell: they have removed their religious habits, their religious symbols; they have toned down their belief in the supernatural or their refutation of errors; they have adapted themselves to a new-world-order liberal view that all religions are really the same, that democratic consensus is the measure of right and wrong, that moral principles evolve with time and that principle and practice need not be always be aligned.

Brexit and the US Elections

The tyranny of new-world order liberalism seemed invincible at the beginning of 2016. Political correctness was so effective that even traditional Catholics would find themselves slipping into the evil patterns of thought that are now ambient. Then came Nigel Farage who spoke the truth about certain aspects of the tyranny of the new world order: it was not democratic, it was not for the common good of the people, it was enslaving us as pawns of the political elites.

His growing popularity could not go unchallenged by the new-world-order liberal establishment. The media did their best to ridicule him, but their attentions unwittingly gave him the platform to make people laugh at them instead—so much so that the British public voted to leave the European Union.

Then came the unlikely success of Donald Trump in the US presidential election campaign. He confronted political correctness with his brash, vulgar and shameless style of debate and awakened a consciousness among many Americans that they had been enslaved by an elite that was undermining the greatness of their country.

Farage broke the illusion of inevitability of everything the new-world-order liberals were working towards, and Trump exposed political correctness as its instrument of tyranny. Does this mark the beginning of the end of the new world order?

In human terms, it probably does not. Neither the self-determination of Brexit nor the death of the dragon of political correctness will fundamentally alter the system.

The international government organisations of the world, the media barons, the investment bankers, the corporate lords, the think-tanks, the lobbyists, the academics are still where they were, and their programme is the same: an anti-God, secular one-world government.

The true one-world order

For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a son is given to us, and the government is upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the world to come, the Prince of Peace. (Is 9:6).

But there are more than human terms to consider: Our Lord Jesus Christ became man to establish the Kingdom of Heaven upon earth. He came that we might willingly become His loyal subjects; He came that we might reign with Him. His is an everlasting and mighty kingdom built upon foundations of supernatural humility and faith. His is a kingdom which is an extension of Himself—His Mystical Body. This Mystical Body, comprising of our God, Jesus Christ, as the head and grace-filled faithful as its members, is the only true one-world order.

The Farages and the Trumps of this world might be unwitting instruments in God’s hands to bring about the visible glory of His Kingdom, or they might simply be a spasm of sanity in the world’s decline to collective dementia. God knows. But either way, the Kingdom of God remains as much in vigour today as when the apostles were setting the world on fire with His doctrine two thousand years ago.

Our God was born to us of a Virgin Mother, the most perfect of His creatures, in a stable in Bethlehem. He was detached from the world, while in the world, and He bids that we be the same. If we wish to bring perfect order to the world, we must become like the ox and the ass knowing our Owner and watching by His crib! In His kingdom alone is there the tranquility of order peace for He is the ever reigning Prince of Peace.

His empire shall be multiplied, and there shall be no end of peace: he shall sit upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom; to establish it and strengthen it with judgment and with justice, from henceforth and forever: the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Is 9:7)
