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

Her Immaculate Heart Prevailed

The Soviet Union Was Dissolved on December 8th, 1991
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT:  On this day, 20 years ago, the Soviet Union was dissolved.  Just as she foretold to the three Fatima children, in the end, her Immaculate Heart would prevail.  On the 8th of December in 1991, leaders from across the USSR came together and signed a treaty officially ending the 69 year-long regime.  The ceremonial end of the USSR came with the resignation of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, and the lowering of the red Soviet flag from the Kremlin on December 25th, 1991.  I believe this was just the first of her victories.  I also believe we will likely see the completion of her victories very VERY soon!
