Appomattox Day

This Sunday, the 9th of April, marks another year of the South’s subjugation to Yankees, globalists, and other destructive forces:  It is the day in 1865 on which the main army of the Confederate States, Gen Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, surrendered to Gen Grant at Appomattox Courthouse in Virginia.  Since then, countless evils have been visited upon the South:  the demonization of our heroes and way of life, the murder and exploitation of our countrymen, the inbringing of many foreign ideas and abstract rights - Jim Crow, abortion, Fundementalism, transgenderism, etc. - and all the rest of that horrible list.

But Dixie is not alone in suffering such things, and we should learn how others have dealt with them so that we too might emerge after the dark days of captivity are over with our traditions intact.

One thing we can do is to keep the day of calamity as a solemn day of fasting and prayer, and encourage all other Southerners to do likewise.  The Old Testament Jews did this to commemorate the destruction of Jerusalem and their exile under the Babylonians (see Zechariah ch. 8).  The Serbians still do this in remembrance of the Great Martyr Tsar Lazar and all the martyrs of Kosovo who suffered at the hands of the Turkish invaders on 15 June 1389, and some even fast every Tuesday, the day of the week when the battle took place.

For more than 600 years the Serbs have been faithful to their fallen brethren, but the South has mostly rejected ours after only 150. 

[40] And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
[41] Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Southerners must be more watchful.  We must fast and pray as best we can on April 9th this year, though it is Palm Sunday, a day when fasting is usually relaxed somewhat - and every year.  We ought to consider prayers and fasting of some kind every Saturday as well, the day of the week when the surrender happened.

For prayers, some here would be useful for this occasion with some slight changes:

This one in particular from that site is very good (opened 27 Oct. 2016):

O Master, Lord our God, unto Thee do we pray, and Thee do we sinners, Thine unworthy servants, beseech, that Thou regard the entreaty of us sinners, Thy useless servants, and have mercy upon us: for our iniquities and sins have gone over our heads, O Master, and we have become an object of reproach for the nations, and of mockery and derision for the ungodly [enemies] who beset us;

and we have been humbled even unto death because of our sins and iniquities, and our blasphemies.

  Who will not weep over us who are brought so low?Who will not lament this our captivity?For all of this hath come upon us because of our sins, and iniquities and blasphemies.

Wherefore, though honored children of Sion, we have been reckoned as a potter’s vessels;

wherefore, gold hath tarnished and good silver hath corroded;

wherefore, though Nazarites of Sion who shone forth more brightly than snow, we have become black as coal;

though whiter than milk, we have become darker than ink;

though we are clad in fleece, we have been clothed in shame, and our iniquities have been magnified beyond the iniquities of Sodom;

wherefore, though children of the day and of the light, we have become children of the night and of darkness;

wherefore, though children of the kingdom, we have become slaves of iniquitous enemies and infidel nations: for we have sinned, we have committed iniquity, we have dealt unrighteously, breaking the commandments of our Lord God.

Yet forsake us not utterly, for the sake of Thy name, O Lord, and break not Thy covenant, and take not Thy mercy away from us, for the sake of Thy compassions, O our Father Who art in the heavens, and for the sake of the lovingkindness of Thine only-begotten Son, and the mercy of Thy Holy Spirit;

neither remember Thou our iniquities and sins.

But let Thy compassions go quickly before us, O Lord, for we are become exceeding poor.

Help us, O God our Savior, for the sake of the glory of Thy name.

Accept the confession of us sinners, Thine unprofitable servants, for the sake of the precious and holy Blood of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, which He shed for the life of the world;

for the sake of His holy apostles and the martyrs who struggled to shed their own blood for His holy name;

and for the sake of the holy prophets, fathers and patriarchs who strove to be well-pleasing to Thy name.

Spurn not our entreaties, O Lord, neither depart not utterly from us;

for we place no hope in our own righteousness, but in Thy mercy, wherewith Thou dost acquire our generation.

Wherefore, we beseech and entreat Thy goodness: Turn us not away from Thy face, neither disdain our unworthiness;

but have mercy upon us according to Thy great mercy, and according to the multitude of Thy compassions overlook our iniquities and sins.

Yea, O omnipotent Master, hearken to the entreaties of us sinners, and help Thy people, and strengthen our army in time of war, and render it powerful and mighty.

As Thou gavest strength against the adversaries to Joshua son of Nun and to David Thy prophet, so, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, do Thou strengthen and help Thy people, who call upon Thy holy name, for we know none other God than Thee, and we call upon Thy name;

for Thou art He Who worketh all things in all men, and from Thee do we seek help.

Wherefore, look down from heaven, O Lord, and direct Thy gaze from the holy house of Thy glory.

Where is Thy zeal, and where Thy strength? Where is the magnitude of Thy mercy and Thy compassions?For Thou art our God, and Thy name is upon us.

Reconsider, O Lord, for the sake of Thy servants, for the sake of Thy Holy Church, for the sake of all Thy saints from ages past.

Our opponents have trampled upon Thy holiness;

and we have become as we were in the beginning, when Thou didst not exercise Thy dominion over us;

for we have all become unclean;

all our righteousness is like a filthy rag, and we have fallen like leaves because of our iniquities;

and there is no-one who calleth upon Thy name and remembereth Thee, that Thou mightest help us.

And Thou hast turned Thy face away from us and abandoned us for the sake of our sins, and iniquities and blasphemies, the enemies, the prideful and the infidel nations puffing themselves up.

And now, O Lord our God, be Thou not utterly wroth, for if Thou wilt open heaven, the mountains will tremble at Thy presence and will move from their place, and fire shall consume our adverse and iniquitous foes, and Thy name shall be awesome to those who oppose Thee.

All this time we have not lifted our eyes to any other god.

Wherefore, O Master, look down now from heaven, and see, and save us for the sake of Thy holy name, and deliver us from our ungodly enemies, and free us from their wiles, plots and snares;

and deprive us not of Thy mighty aid, for we are not strong enough to prevail over those who assail us, but Thou hast the power to save us from our adverse and unbelieving foes.

Strengthen Thy people and our army, and make it steadfast, powerful and mighty in time of war;

and cast down, and break in pieces and set at nought the ungodly and unbelieving barbarians, our . . . foes, and grant glory to Thy holy name, lest the nations say: Where is their God? Through the supplications and entreaty of our most glorious Mistress, the Theotokos, and of all Thy saints.

For Thou art our help and strength, and we send up glory unto Thee—the unoriginate Father, Thine only-begotten Son, and Thine all-holy, good and life-creating Spirit—now and ever, and unto the ages of ages.


Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners at the South!


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð!

Anathema to the Union!

  2. I’m afraid the Puritans won’t be of much help here. It is their heretical idea of America as the Messiah Nation, as some sort of new religion and/or church, that has given rise to events like this one in Syria and many others before it.
