215th Anniversary of the Death of King Louis XVI

All over France, Masses are being held in honor of the martyred king.

Despite the distortions of Jacobinist history, King Louis XVI died like a saint, holding fast to his Catholic faith to the end, his faithful priest and confessor at his side, who cried out when the blade fell, Fils de St. Louis, montez aux Cieux! ("Son of St. Louis, ascend to Heaven!").
