Easter and April

It is fitting that today, the 1st of April, is Easter Day. While the modern man may smirk and deride the faith of his ancestors, others recognise the timeless truths and beauty contained therein. It is the fools of the world who consider adherence to Christ folly – what these same proffer as insanity is, in actuality, the salvation of man.

Also fitting is that Easter will be the day to welcome Confederate Heritage Month. While the world attacks Dixie just as it did Christ, we can take comfort in knowing that truth is not dependent upon numbers. The crowd that a week ago, on Palm Sunday, followed Christ with humility and reverence could not have been expected to turn treasonously upon their King. Similarly, we would not have expected the wholesale abandonment of the South that has been occurring at the hands of her inheritors and inhabitants. On Good Friday, those with little faith would have believed the mission of Christ to be a Lost Cause. But Our Lord gloriously rises, dispelling the dependency which man has upon his own frail person, and witnessing to him that God is capable of all things. With that great matter in mind, let us enter this month firstly in faith to Christ, and secondly in promoting and living our shared Southern identity.

Deo Vindice, Resurgam!
