It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Never Forget Who We Are....

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Before there was Gregorian Chant, there was Roman Plain Chant. The following sounds in the embeded video below are some of the oldest Psalmodies in ancient Western history. This is who we are! It is our Roman Catholic heritage and culture. It is this very thing, along with our customs and sensibilities, that the Leftists outside of the Church seek to destroy through their legal means of cultural genocide. This is what Modernists inside the Church unwittingly undermine with their constant liturgical innovations and introduction of modern pop/folk music. The Modernists inside the Church I have pity for, because they have been dupped. They mistakenly believe that by "modernizing" the Church, and "bringing it into the 21st century" they will attract more people to her. Sadly, some forty years of "modernizing" has produced the exact opposite, yet for some reason they are unable to see that. When will they learn that there is nothing they can do to "change" the Church in such a way that people who already hate her will somehow come to like her? When will they learn that there is nothing more "dated" than a contemporary liturgy, and that traditional liturgy is TIMELESS......


Remember who you are, and return to your most ancient roots. This is the Roman Catholic way. This is our heritage and our identity. This is who we are as a people. Never, ever forget!

Special thanks to Sarah in Australia for this video Recommendation.

What fantastic chanting. It's too bad so many people haven't got the backbone to stand up for their faith in these dire times for the Church. Thanks for the video Sarah and Sir Knight.

Down to the isokratima (note held underneath the melody) and the introduction, this sounds very similar to Byzantine chant as practiced in the Greek Orthodox Church. It actually sounds very similar to the Plagal First mode. Very interesting. Thank you for this beautiful video.

This sounds a lot like some of the Eastern Orthodox music I have heard-and also the indigenous music of the middle east-which makes sense, since Christianity comes from there...

Greetings;
My name is James K.Allen,i recently
created a yahoo group here in north
Florida called:(The Templars of St.
Gabriel the Archangel).It has been created so that those of us who are faithful roman catholics can step up to defend our faith and protect the holy church and pontiff
from the pagan groups that seek its
downfall.Currently there are pagan groups that seek to spread the influence of Satan by recruiting weak-willed people into their ranks.Dark times are coming,and i'm willing to defend our faith,i'm just looking for others to help me.My email is:DivineTemplar007@yahoo.com ..
If any catholics in norteast Florida wish to join,just send me an email and i'll send an invite.So, just email me.
May Almighty God bestow his blessing upon your group..

Thank you Sarah and Sir Knight!
This has always spoken to my soul!!! All my life I've only heard traces of it in profane and indigenous middle eastern music.
How can I purchase this for my home, my family?
Please, dear Knight, I am compelled to introduce you and your guests to Dr. Dilsaver, Imago Dei Clinic, and his work on on authentic patriarchy;"The Three Marks of Manhood" subtitled "How to be Priest, Prophet, and King of your Family". I know Dr. Dilsaver personally and God has given him, and myself, the mission to help reestablish the constitution of manhood into the Body of Christ. Will you (and any interested) look at Dr. Dilsaver and his work at (www.idpsy.com) and get back to me? alvin.froehlich@gmail.com
