Let Us Holdfast To Hope

It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end … because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing … this shadow. Even darkness must pass. 

-Samwise Gamgee 

For those us who hold dear the values and traditions of our ancestors, for those of us who long for the return of the throne and alter to Christendom, for those of us who detest the modern world, we must not despair. As we look at the world decay under the progression of liberal ideas and watch our homelands be ravaged by invasive cultures, we must remain hopeful. I know it is hard, we see the last remnants of the West passing away. The world is failing. But I say to thee, do not despair, but have hope and trust in the Lord that he may deliver us from the darkness. Stand firm in the principles and convictions you hold dear. Continue to fight the good fight and do not bow to the devil and his works. We, sons and daughters of a bad revolution, are the last stronghold against darkness. If we holdfast to hope and stand firm in our resolve and trust in the Lord, we will be victorious. But I must stress that without the Lord we can not overcome the darkness, we must confide in him and ask that he grant us strength. Remember that in the sign of the Lord, you will conquer.

Psalm 26 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

26 The psalm of David before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?
2 Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen.
3 If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing I have asked of the Lord, this will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. That I may see the delight of the Lord, and may visit his temple.
5 For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle.
6 He hath exalted me upon a rock: and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies. I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: have mercy on me and hear me.
8 My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek.
9 Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.
10 For my father and my mother have left me: but the Lord hath taken me up.
11 Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies.
12 Deliver me not over to the will of them that trouble me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me; and iniquity hath lied to itself.
13 I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord.
