Mr. Hugh Akins’ League of Christ the King has just released and distributed the most recent issue of the quarterly Resistance journal Oportet Christum Regnare (at present, the Resistance’s only hard-copy subscription periodical). If you are a current subscriber, you will be receiving it soon, if you haven’t already.
If you are not a subscriber, you are missing out!
The current issue is dedicated to His Excellency Archbishop Lefebvre, and his fight for the restoration of the Kingship of Christ, as the heart of the battle in the Church since Vatican II.
In the current issue, you will find articles such as:
- Bishop Williamson discussing the interplay of Catholic truth and Catholic authority within the example of Archbishop Lefebvre’s resistance after Vatican II;
- A letter from League Chaplain, Fr. Francois Chazal (MCSPX), discussing Archbishop Lefebvre and the recrowning of Christ;
- Two forgotten and conjoined articles by Archbishop Lefebvre outlining the basic problems with Vatican II and the post-conciliar reforms, concluding in a rousing exhortation to hold fast to Tradition;
- A pointed and timely excerpt from Archbishop Lefebvre’s book “I Accuse the Council;”
- Fr. Berto (Archbishop Lefebvre’s theological expert at Vatican II) testifies to the eminent learning and doctrinal acumen of the great Archbishop;
- Archbishop Lefebvre’s 1979 priestly jubilee sermon in front of 10,000 Parisians, in which he launched an initiative dear to the hearts of all Soldiers of Christ the King: The Crusade to recreate Christendom;
- The Politically-incorrect (i.e., “unbranded”) Archbishop Lefebvre on Muslims and Jews;
- A series of quotations demonstrating Archbishop Lefebvre’s final position vis-a-vis Rome, repudiating any possibility of a merely practical accord with unconverted Rome;
- The apostasy of the conciliar church within the context of Fatima;
- An article by Bishop Williamson demonstrating how the SSPX has largely laid down its arms against conciliarism, and is slowly being dissolved by it;
- An interview with Bishop Faure (Superior General of the SAJM: The Resistance replacement for the compromised and semi-conciliar SSPX);
- An article by an anonymous Swiss who asks the question: “Is it better for priests to wait for the final sellout of the SSPX before leaving, or, should they come to the aid of the faithful now?” Asked and answered in Thomistic style, the arguments are compelling!
Moreover, as the fight for Christ the King is not only waged in the ecclesiastical realm, but also in the world of politics, economics, social and monetary policy, and media, the reader will also find many informative and related articles on these topics.
As we have stated before, one of the most appealing virtues of Oportet Christum Regnare is its breadth of subject matter: The reader simply cannot come away from any given issue with that all-too-common “tunnel vision” which would have him mistakenly believe that the Church’s battle to restore Christ the King will be fought entirely ad infra. Zionism, communism, monetary policy, social movements, media, etc. are all pawns to be used either for or against Christ’s reign, and Mr. Akins provides a healthy mix of all these elements in each issue.
Oportet Christum Regnare was specifically endorsed by Bishop Williamson in His Excellency’s weekly Eleison Comments (#529), where he said:
The good news is that there is a Traditional and Resistant quarterly magazine, beautifully produced on paper, sent by snail mail, and which is as politically incorrect as can be, because it is militantly Catholic. It is called Oportet Christum Regnare (Christ must reign), and it is edited by Mr. Hugh Akins, a veteran of the Vietnam war in the 1960’s, wounded then and shot at since in most probably an assassination attempt, because his brand of Catholicism must seriously displease the enemies of God who run the world today.
But his value for Catholics in particular is that he understands, and in OCR keeps on explaining, not only why the Archbishop was the main upholder of true Catholicism after the “plundering of the Church at Vatican II,” but also why today’s so-called Resistant priests are the main upholders of the Archbishop’s work, despite the appearances. At least as much as he denounces the Church’s external enemies, Akins also identifies and condemns and gives reasons for condemning her internal enemies, within the Society of St Pius X as within the mainstream clergy. Akins is a soldier of Christ, fighting the true war both in Church and world, for the salvation of souls. That war is fiercer by the day. The paper copies of Oportet Christum Regnare may cost more than electronic sources of information, but they are more lasting, and will be a permanent asset of lasting and valuable orientation in a home library.
Oportet Christum Regnare will be particularly invaluable for those persons who do not surf the internet for information, as they will not find much of this journal’s content anywhere else in hard-copy format. If you know someone like this, consider printing this endorsement for them, or simply buying them a gift subscription.
