Remembrances for August - 2022


Dear friends, if you have time, please pray for these members of the Southern family on the day they reposed.  Many thanks.

But one may ask:  ‘What good does it do to pray for the departed?’  An answer is offered here:

Along with prayers and hymns for the departed:

1 August

Rev James Henley Thornwell, one of the most formidable theological writers of the South.  You may read some of those writings here:

3 August

Miss Flannery O’Connor, one of Dixie’s best writers, fiction and non-fiction.

4 August

Richard ‘King’ Carter, one of the most influential men of colonial Virginia, and the builder of the historic Christ Church in 1730.  His great influence would continue through his descendants, one of whom is our papa, Robert E. Lee.

24 August

Jerry Clower, one of the South’s finest comedians.

26 August

William Byrd II, a colonial Virginian of many attainments.

Also, to celebrate some of the saints of August from the South’s Christian inheritance of various lands, follow this link on over if you’d like:


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

Anathema to the Union!
