Why Attend The CRUSADER Congress?
"It does not take a majority to prevail . . . but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of [Christendom] in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
Most men today, reared on the a lifetime of the "exceptionalism" of the 'Murican System, will have never considered the current electoral "system" is not "the last, best hope on Earth"; yet the Christian man should know that the "last, best hope" is Christ and his social kingship. While it may be true that if the 'Murican System were placed under Christ's loving authority it could produce a form of Christendom, barring Divine intervention, this is highly unlikely to occur among 330 million souls. What The CONGRESS aims to teach and then begin acting upon are the building blocks of that social kingship: Family, Faith and Fraternity.
What You’ll Learn - 3 Action Items
Begin efforts to remove kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews etc. from all public and (co-opted) private schools to place them in homeschools or homeschool hybrids or non-co-opted private schools. This is a “negative” action, but it can take positive form if our Crusader Knights become homeschool teachers, teachers/coaches at homeschool hybrids, supporters of alternative education outfits and promoters of “good” schools. If our first obligation is to “know God”, then we must reconstruct education so that it teaches to that end.
Formation of one’s own prayer group (Rosary rally group, League of St. Martin, Latin Mass Society, etc.) from which the graces will flow for further actionable items. We ought to each form a group (or enroll our existing ones) into this coalition, count the membership and make it a goal to have more “chapters” and more members at next year’s conference. The CRUSADER Knights of The Holy Rosary is one such group.
Be intentional about our spending and support the good guys as often as we are able. These expenses could be for food, hardware, medical care, entertainment etc. Anyway, the goal of the Crusader Knight would be to move 10% or more of that spending to affiliated (or local producers of good-will). We would want to report back our efforts, successes, failures and reasons for failure, so that we could try to INCREASE and IMPROVE our spending within our circle.
