Saint Anna Mission

Any Lutherans interested in Orthodoxy? We are working on bringing a group of people descended from the European Christian Tradition to Orthodoxy. My hope is that we can get a large enough group together to complete what Luther originally set out to do.

Saint Anna Mission Update: We continue to add content.

We have added a Calendar with The Prologue From Ohrid entries for each day of the year.
saintannamission.org/2023/12/07/the-prologue-

We have also added links based on the current date to push the correct calendar day and daily prayers.

Sköna hem! Sweet home! Embroidery

Sköna hem! Där livets rosor dofta, Sköna hem! Dit tanken flyr så ofta. Du är målet för vår hjartas läng tar, Och var är vi är till dig står all vår trängtan.

Sweet home! Where the roses of life smell, Beautiful home! Where the thought so often escapes. You are the goal of our heart’s longing, And where we are to you is all our longing.

To The Victor Go The Myths & Monuments

I recently completed the book by Arthur Thompson, former CEO of the John Birch Society.

To The Victor Go The Myths & Monuments: The History of the First 100 Years of the War Against God and the Constitution, 1776 – 1876, and Its Modern Impact

TTVGTMAM

I had heard of Art’s work on Lincoln which contradicts the Civics Class hagiographies available in most United Soviet States of America classrooms.

Having been a long-time student of the lies promulgated by the establishment about Lincoln, I thought I would give this one a go. I was not expecting the book to be quite so heavy. It is a large book with over 600 pages. The first book I read on the subject was, Forced Into Glory,  by Lerone Bennett Jr. I have since read Tom Di Lorenzos work. Not all. You can see all of Tom’s books by searching online with his name and Lincoln.

Lincoln was the American equivalent of Lenin in Russia. He promulgated the same fundamental ideology. He was backed by the same European conspiratorial ideologies.

The author goes into great detail. He follows the ideology of the German front groups established by the Bavarian Illuminati. He shows how the conspiracy took over the Masons. He discusses the leadership at the founding of the United States having many members involved with the conspiracy. He discusses the Communist experiments that peppered the US. Some of these communes are listed below.

New Harmony
Brook Farm
Oneida
American Union of Associationists (AUA) was a national organization of supporters of the economic ideas of Charles Fourier

The author did not mention the Mormon attempt at an antebellum socialist commune in the USA. The United Order of Enoch was an attempt by the early LDS to form their own utopian socialist society. The project was abandoned for printing their own money and a more capitalistic approach. I suspect this was to keep the LDS money flowing into JBS. This brings us to the founding of the Republican Party. This party was originally established in Ripon, Wisconsin. The party was founded by members of or close associates of another socialist commune experiment known as Ceresco. This community was named after Ceres, the goddess of the harvest. When this community failed it collapsed into the town of Ripon. It was here in 1854 that the Republican Party was established.

One of the key founders of the Republican party was Horace Greeley. Read the book or do more research if you would like. The takeaway is that the Republican party was founded by socialists looking forward to converting the smaller federal pre-civil war government into the behemoth we see today. The connections to Marx by the Republicans and Lincoln are unassailable. Marx was simply a frontman for a much larger movement of internationalist finance and commerce. Lincoln was agnostic at best and likely more in alignment with spiritism of some type. Lincoln packed his administration with communists and illuminists if a distinction can be made. Many of the participants in the Communist uprisings in Germany and Europe in the year 1848 were instrumental in the invasion and subjection of the Southern States.

Lincoln is claimed by Rosicrucians to have been one of three ruling members of their society.

Other groups working for a new world order.
-Skull and Bones referred to throughout the book as the Order.
-Knights of the Golden Circle <=> Klu Klux Klan (kuklos circle in Greek)
-Council on Foreign Relations

The book continues from the end of the genocidal and completely unnecessary Civil War up until the present time describing the victories of the conspiracy over the once great USA.

While the book is a fascinating treasure trove of interesting information, I do not agree with the presuppositions and conclusions of the author and John Birch Society.

The author is constantly championing the demonic term Judeo-Christian. This term is itself a term pushed by the conspiracy. It is Orwellian. There is no such thing as Judeo-Christian.

The author has a chiliastic view of the United States. Having gone through the public brainwashing school system, having gone through the classical liberal mindset, and having adopted a Libertarian viewpoint, I have come to reject all the previous presuppositions. I continue to study Orthodox Christianity. The hard Truth you discover when analyzing the government of the US, the more you realize that the whole system is revolutionary and contrary to Scripture and the Holy Fathers. From what I have seen the USA was never run by anything other than revolutionary technology. The ways it was successful was in the ways it mirrored the Christian Monarchies of Europe. The ordained form of government is a Christian Monarchy. The anointed king rules together with the church. Both are ruled by Christ as King.

Where does that leave us as Christians living in the USA? Ultimately, no form of government will be perfect until the final judgment. We should push for Christian leaders. We should embrace Truth and reject falsehood. The government is there to chastise the faithful as much as the evildoers. We must resist evil and there are ways to do this by voting. It will not be until we give up our revolutionary spirit and the worship of the revolutionary saints that we will have a chance to see True Christianity really take hold in the US. The health of Christians and The Church is typically greatest under difficulty and persecution.

One final point of disagreement with the author is his apologetic justification for Freemasonry. Freemasonry has always been a secretive gnostic movement. Its involvement in overthrowing Christianity and Christian governments is well documented. The perfectability of man through some type of secret knowledge or ancient mystery school is Luciferian and blasphemous. The perfectability of man is found in Christ alone.

Burning Man, Climate Death Cult, Police State Clown World on The Feast of The Dormition

Today we celebrate The Feast of The Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos.

Dormition Theotokos

We contrast her holiness and peace with the spectacles of the demonic spirit of the age. This appears to be one of the top news stories of the day.

Extinction Rebellion protesters were blocking the road to the Burning Man festival. Police officers rammed through the barricade and arrested the peaceful protesters who would like to see mankind murdered into extinction.

Ram Rebellion

 

You cannot make this stuff up. The neo-malthusian/anti-human climate change activists, brought to you by the international elite, were blocking degenerates from attending a modern pagan wicker man festival of debauchery.

Wicker burn

 

The American Indian law enforcement almost killed the people who think people should be killed while they where concerned about being killed.

All I can say is… Lord Have Mercy! Most Holy Theotokos save us.

 

BRICS Is Not An Alternative

South Africa hosted a meeting of the BRICS countries this week. This group is being positioned as an alternative to the Anglo-American Establishment. The AAE steers the US and other Western countries that comprise world government. I listened to a cross-section of speeches by the BRICS leaders. I found little difference between the talking points of the BRICS and G7 countries. Topics relating to ESG, climate change, empowering women in the workforce(which reduces population, allows the state to raise the children and increases tax revenues which are skimmed by the internationalist financial class.), sustainable growth and clean energy were ever-present.

The meeting had been hyped as a launching pad for a gold-backed reserve currency. Navigating through the wave of articles online has yielded few clarifying results of what is actually being proposed. The main takeaway is that BRICS is expanded. I expect a rebranding of sorts as the new Hegelian dialectic will need to be marketed with maximum efficacy. The revolutionary technology of internationalist finance is coming out with a new revision.

The idea of a gold-backed reserve currency is all marketing PR from what I have seen so far. I would love to be wrong. I do not expect the BRICS currency will be redeemable in specie. I hope I am wrong on this as well. My prediction is that they will sell the gold narrative to promote the adoption of the BRICS currency while in reality applying a bait-and-switched approach in the end. The internationalist debt-based fiat system which has driven consolidation and control for centuries will not be going anywhere. You will not be voting on it.

The big takeaway is the elite are moving away from the previous model of US hegemony which they have exploited to the max. They have been signaling the scuttling of Project USA in internationalist periodicals for years. We seem to be in the next phase of consolidation which will seem to bring equity and prosperity to those disenfranchised by US imperialism. In reality, the march of world government continues with a new cast of characters. More consolidation and control to follow.

BRICS is itself a creation of the AAE. Notice the term BRIC was first coined by Lord Jim O’Neill…

“Who coined the acronym BRICS in 2001, talks to us about the future of the bloc and its implications for Africa. Jim O’Neill coined the acronym BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) more than 20 years ago in a seminal paper he wrote while chief economist of Goldman Sachs.”

I had hoped that this individual was some obscure and unknown individual. It would seem that he is a member of Chatham House. The operating center of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The grand lodge, if you will, of the CFR’s Pratt House.

“Lord O’Neill of Gatley is a member of the House of Lords, sitting on the cross benches since he stepped down as Commercial Secretary to the Treasury in September 2016.

In July 2021, Lord O’Neill became a member of the panel of Senior Advisors to Chatham House, having finished his term as Chair.”

The elites have talked openly about their plans to move power to the East for decades and now it is happening. The lords of international finance have been planning their system for centuries.

Remember Psalm 145

Trust ye not in princes, in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation.
