On the beautiful day of May 30th, St. Louis de Montfort Academy held its graduation for the Class of 2020. Parents and some members of the clergy traveled for this special day which coincided with the feast of St. Joan of Arc. The month of May was the centenary of her canonization by the Universal Church.

Had it not been for the COVID-19 lock-down, His Excellency, the Most Reverend Ronald Gainer, bishop of Harrisburg, would have celebrated the Graduation Mass at the Carmelite Monastery in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. He likewise planned on attending the ceremonies at St. Louis de Montfort Academy, as Bishop Waltersheid, auxiliary bishop of Pittsburg, had done two years ago. The Academy looks forward to a future visit.

Since several of the graduates hailed from Louisiana and Arkansas, St. Louis de Montfort Academy invited Mr. Thomas Drake, president of TFP-Louisiana to deliver the commencement address. For our readers we transcribe the final part of his address.

***********

Now, let me tell you about another seventeen-year-old.  This 17 year old has a most exceptional place in history. Never in human history has anyone held supreme command of the military forces of a nation at the age of seventeen. And this by God’s command.

Dear graduates, would you feel ready, if suddenly, as you are getting your luggage ready to leave this blessed place, you were handed by special delivery a letter calling you up to serve the nation?  With orders to command an army of rough and tough men, all of them older, more experienced and even smarter than you? You might say: mission impossible.  But God will say: it’s inconvenient, it’s unexpected, it hurts… it’s my Divine Will.

That 17-year-old is remembered today!  In fact, exactly one hundred years ago this month, the Church canonized her.

Who?

St. Joan of Arc!

And today, as we are gathered here, the TFP-Louisiana is holding a Rosary Rally at her golden equestrian monument in New Orleans.

Let me share with you an interesting description of St. Joan of Arc:

She was truthful when lying was the common speech of men;

She was honest when honesty was a lost virtue;

She was a keeper of promises when the keeping of a promise was expected of no one;

She was full of pity when a merciless cruelty was the rule;

She was steadfast when stability was unknown;

And honorable in an age which had forgotten what honor was;

She was a rock of convictions in a time when men believed in nothing and scoffed at all things;

She was unfailingly true in an age that was false to the core;

She was of a dauntless courage when hope and courage had perished in the hearts of her nation.

Does anyone here know who wrote this?   Perhaps Prof. Plinio Correa de Oliveira?  Or St. John Bosco?

Actually, it was an American. A character much less versed in holiness than those I mentioned.  You’ve all heard of him.  Samuel Clemens.  Also known as Mark Twain.

Now,

I am going to give you 6 lessons from the life of St. Joan of Arc for your journey ahead.

#1. Believe in your mission.

She believed in her mission without hesitation. This is what she said: “But since God had commanded me to go, I must do it. And since God had commanded it, had I had a hundred fathers and a hundred mothers, and had I been a king’s daughter, I would have gone.”  Such determination inspired rough men to confess their sins and follow her into battle.

If you know what is right, you know what is wrong.  And when you hear Deus Vult – God commands it – do not hesitate to follow God’s Commandments.

Never hesitate to do what is right, no matter the odds!

#2. Follow God, not the world

You must not measure yourself by the criteria of the world.  The famous of today are the forgotten of tomorrow.  Measure yourself by God’s standards. The enemies of St. Joan of Arc did everything to destroy, defame and obliterate her memory. They even burnt her body entirely to ashes to leave nothing.  They pretended not to know who she was.  Who? This was done with Our Lord and many saints. But today everyone knows St. Joan of Arc, whether they are Korean, Argentine or Rwandan. Nobody cares to know about the powerful and the rich of her day – the George Soros’, Bill Gates’ or Warren Buffets of her day. But all over the world she is honored with churches, plays and movies. Children are named after her.

So, seek first the kingdom of Heaven and the rest…

#3. To be good, you must fight

You must fight to be good. Otherwise you will just become another example of mediocrity. This is what St. Joan said: “The men at arms will fight, and God will give the victory!”  In other words, God will give the victory, but you must show up to fight. If you don’t show up, then God will NOT give the victory. So whether it is to prevent drag queens corrupting the innocence of children, or overcoming a defect or confronting the Revolution… fight and God will give the victory. With Our Lady’s help, it is guaranteed.

#4. Fight to be chaste

“She was as chaste as an angel.” Many, many are the testimonies of powerful men who changed their impure lives because of St. Joan of Arc. She would severely admonish them and tell them what awaited them in hell if they didn’t confess and change their ways. Several swore on oath that in her presence they felt no temptations to impurity.

Many years ago, I read an 800-page manual on Military Psychology. There was a section about chastity and combat officer performance in Vietnam: statistically it showed that the more impure the officer was, the more cowardly in the face of death. Think of Col. John Ripley USMC, and you will know that that is true.

The first thing St. Joan of Arc did when she took command of the defeated French army, was to “clean up the camp” by expelling immorality.  And her army became invincible.

So treasure chastity and fight to be chaste.

If you fall, remember St. Joan’s words to the judges when she was asked if she were in God’s grace. She said  “If I am not, God put me there; and if I am, God keep me there!”

#5. Live the Spirit of Chivalry

More than called to save her country and king, she was called to restore Chivalry because there were no men “man enough” to do it. All of you have attended the Call to Chivalry camps. You heard so much about chivalry and men who lived it: La Valette and the Knights of Malta; Godfrey of Bouillon; El Cid Campeador; St. Ignatius of Loyola and Prof. Plinio Correa de Oliveira.

It was Prof. Plinio who wrote that St. Joan of Arc embodied chivalry so much, that “She is a knight, not a ‘knightess’. Yes, she is a fragile, fine and delicate maiden… However, she is a warrior, and a great warrior!” She resurrected the spirit of Chivalry.

So must you, wherever you are!

#6.  Practice heroic confidence

She had total confidence in God and the Blessed Mother. That is why she inspired confidence in all those around her. The French biographer DeVries says: “When Joan of Arc appeared, they felt her confidence and determination. They followed her with a loyalty which few soldiers in history have given their leaders.”

So, be firm in your prayers. Confide always in God and Mary Most Holy. Leaders without confidence, do not inspire confidence in others.

So, dear graduates, Chastity, Chivalry, Confidence. Three qualities. Three virtues. That you – class of 2020 of St. Louis de Montfort Academy – are called not only to practice, but in which you must excel to be true sons of Mary Most Holy.

Today’s feast day of St. Joan of Arc is not a bygone memory or even a lesson for the present.  Rather, it is the map, the call, the mission of your future.

Always believe in your sublime mission.  And fight like crusaders.

St. Joan of Arc, pray for us!

Mediocrity and egoism are engrained in the modern world. Heroism, self-sacrifice, and honor are often unwelcome and seldom given the admiration they deserve. After all, we are taught that comfort, security, and personal advancement come first. How many men are willing to go beyond the call of duty for an ideal greater than themselves?

America is blessed with heroes, but you rarely hear much about them. One such hero, and one of America’s greatest Marines, was Colonel John W. Ripley (1939-2008).

A distinguished combat commander of the Vietnam War, Colonel Ripley served on the front lines. On one occasion, hovering above the jungle in a helicopter, enemy fire ripped through the floor and wounded him. The impact of the bullet was so strong that it almost knocked him out of the open helicopter. He managed to stop falling only by grabbing the seat-belt of the pilot, who nearly choked from the unexpected tension around his neck!

His most famous military achievement was the destruction of an important bridge at Dong Ha, in Northern South Vietnam. At the onset of the 1972 North Vietnamese Easter Offensive, the enemy counted on using the bridge to invade. Without food and sleep for three days, his energy was sapped, yet he knew he had to blow up that bridge.

When human strength failed, he recited a rhythmic drill prayer over and over: “Jesus, Mary, get me there!” His prayers were answered. Under intense fire, Col. Ripley climbed through razor wire, and single-handedly placed explosives which successfully blew up the bridge.

I had the immense privilege to be part of a group of TFP members who met Col. Ripley at his home only a few years before his death. When talking to the hero of Dong Ha, we were inspired by his chivalrous virtues of leadership in adversity and unpretentiousness in peace. Despite age and battle scars, he projected an impression of youthful enthusiasm and innocence which Our Lord praised in the Gospels: “Unless you be as innocent children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.”

He was a role model who fought for what was right. He admired the qualities of other men. During TFP Student Action’s visit, he praised the British Royal Marines and the Royal Gurkha Rifles. He was also an admirer of General “Stonewall” Jackson.

Colonel John Walter Ripley (USMC)

To those who are good, our hero is kind and chivalrous. To the enemy, his is terrible and unrelenting. He was combative on the battlefield as well as in the realm of ideas. He firmly believed that war is for men, and that women should be spared its horrors. Doing the military and women a great service, he testified in Congress against women in the military, and publicly debated this subject on many occasions. He was the hero of Dong Ha and the courageous marine who was unafraid to defend politically incorrect ideas.

Colonel Ripley was a Catholic gentleman and did not hesitate to admit that he was assisted by Our Lord and Our Lady in blowing up the bridge. When TFP Student Action presented a rosary to him, he said, “These beads will not collect dust! Believe me!”

Hearing stories of true heroes is refreshing in a world of mediocrity and indifference. He lived for values that were higher than himself. His valor and heroism will always be admired and appreciated. America should thank God that He blessed her with men like Colonel Ripley and pray fervently that He sends many more like him.

The preceding article was published at tfp.org on March 10, 2006. It has been updated for readability.

The renowned Catholic thinker and activist, Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, once said, “In times of great crisis there are two types of men; those who are overwhelmed by the crisis and those who rise up to resist the trend of events and so change the course of history.” Currently, America is experiencing a crisis.  The media’s reporting is pushing people to a state of terror. A recent Wall Street Journal headline read: “‘Don’t Panic’ Is Rotten Advice.”1 Those who fall prey to the media typify “those who are overwhelmed by the crisis.”

However, where are “those who rise up to resist the trend of events and so change the course of history?” Thanks be to God, one still finds them amidst the current panic. Selflessly, these put themselves at risk to practice charity.  A perfect example is the Brotherhood of Saint Eloi. Their tireless efforts are demonstrated by the following story…

The “Charitables” of Bethune

In a cemetery in northern France, members of the Charitable Brotherhood of Saint Eloi de Bethune, called the “Charitables,” carry a coffin to a family tomb, each wearing a face mask that stands out against their uniform, consisting of a black coat, white gloves and a bicorne hat. Behind them, the deceased’s family follows, their numbers restricted by a government prohibition on large burial gatherings to stem the rising tide of coronavirus patients.2

The “Charitables” are aware of the danger, but love of neighbor compels them. In a Reuters article, brotherhood member Robert Guernot explained: “We’re aware of the risks… In these difficult times, and in a spirit of solidarity and out of love for one’s neighbor, we are still there to accompany the families of the deceased, and thus provide them with support and comfort.”3 During the eight hundred years since their founding, the “Charitables” have weathered other crises.  In fact, they were established during an outbreak of the plague in 1188.

Founding

Then, things looked bleak. The proliferation of mosquitoes and rats exacerbated the spread of the pestilence. Bodies were strewn in the streets. However, people had more faith in God in those days. Amid the rotting bodies and stench of death the townsmen swarmed into the local church and begged God to save them on their knees. They prayed especially through the intercession of Saint Eloi, also known as Saint Elegius. He was an honest goldsmith turned bishop in seventh century France.

Their prayers were answered when, on the feast of Saint Matthew, September 21, 1188, two local smiths met at a water spout between their towns. One, named Germon, was from Beuvry, the other, Gautier, was from Bethune.  While commiserating together over the situation of their people, each told the other that Saint Eloi had come to him in a dream, asking him to found a brotherhood.4

The two men considered this providential and rushed to honor Saint Eloi’s request. The newly founded Charitable Brotherhood of Saint Eloi would give bread to the poor, care to the sick, consolation to the dying and a worthy burial to the dead. Many townsmen of Beuvry and Bethune joined and their ranks swelled. Thanks to their actions, the plague receded and finally disappeared.  If the townsmen had not gone to the Church and prayed for God’s help, they may not have survived the epidemic.

For more than 800 years, the Brotherhood of the “Charitables” have continued their mission and weathered many storms, including almost being destroyed during the French Revolution.

Charity Versus Communism

Today, their respectful treatment of the dead is a pole of stability in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. The brotherhood continues to do what it has always done; willingly carry the deceased, killed by virus or not, to their last resting place. This is a selfless act of charity.

The treatment of the Chinese coronavirus victims stands in stark contrast to their example. There, the military arrests everyone carrying the disease and sequesters them in containment centers. It is authorized to use force against anyone who resists. President Xi Jinping said that anyone who disobeys government orders will be punished. Videos from China demonstrate this, showing coronavirus victims being forcibly dragged from their homes.5

Once a victim has died, his remains are sent to a crematorium where they are incinerated and discarded. His family is forbidden, even from saying a last goodbye. In other words, the communist government treats its citizens like sacks of spoiled meat that are useless to society.

Which method of care would you prefer: that of the “Charitables” or the Communist Chinese government? Which inspires more calm? Unlike the communists, the treatment offered by the brotherhood is like a voice saying, “Have confidence, be courageous! Things are bad but we will pull through this together and no matter what your age or deficiency is, we will take care of you.”

The machine-like brutality of the Communist Chinese only increases the chaos and panic, the brotherhood’s charity eases it. Amid frenzied panic, they apply the antidote of temperance.

Which Will America Be?

How will America react to the coronavirus crisis?  Will it follow the Chinese and become a totalitarian brute that is legitimized by a panic stricken media or will it imitate the “Charitables” and treat the sick and fallen with respect and humanity, calming and stabilizing society amid the chaos?

Clearly, charity is the better option. It is up to you and me, fellow Americans, to shape our nation’s reaction to the virus. We must practice acts of charity and thus counter the trend to panic. If we do this we will become like the “Charitables” and “rise up to resist the trend of events and so change the course of history.”
