We first floated the idea of building a Traditional community in the Spanish Mission article, after discovering that an abandoned village in Galicia was being given away for free. Two Legionnaires have since visited Galicia in order to conduct some initial reconnaissance and ascertain the viability of establishing a mission in Galicia.
Brother Antony and Brother Paul met the Mayor and explained our proposal and saw the abandoned village for themselves. In addition they explored the countryside of an ancient kingdom and visited the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, resting place of Santiago Matamoros, Apostle and Moorslayer.
“St. James the Moorslayer, one of the most valiant saints and knights the world ever had … has been given by God to Spain for its patron and protection.”

Our inability to solve modern problems is in part due to our inability to think outside of the modern world and the palatable options it presents to us. We need a return to the ancient, noble and heroic instead of the modern and prosaic. Continue reading De-Programming Modernism
In the heart of England’s Peak District there is an old church on a hill that overlooks the surrounding town of Bakewell. The church was built in the twelfth century to Norman design, but there is something in the churchyard which is even older.
An ancient stone cross stands among the graves, eight foot tall and blackened and worn by the ages. Despite the weathering, the Anglo-Saxon carvings across Continue reading The Pagan Cross and Codes of Honour
