One Response to Royals Commemorate the Start of WWI

  1. Lily of France - Bourbon and Habsburg Lines says:

    The Christian Princes of Europe and around the world must prepare for Battle. What we are witnessing in these trying times is the restoration of the French Monarchy and the return of the French Monarch/King to lead the people of God into the Battle Array. These are apocalyptic times!!! May the Lily of France – descendant of King Louis XVII – who never perished in the tower, come forward. As the Lord kept you in exile and nourished, disciplined and protected throughout these years, let the people of France, especially her enemies – then and now – know the Bourbon line was never severed during the reign of terror. The warning of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to consecrate France and the Monarch to our Lord’s Sacred Heart will now take place and will be Victoriously heeded and fulfilled. King Louis XIV did not heed; the French Monarch/King shall Fullfill it. So Be It! So Shall It Be!!! Deo Gratias. Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis
