Vatican Won’t Stop Marxists From Erasing Spain’s Glorious History — Franco’s Bones to be Disturbed by Vengeful Government
Monday, July 2, 2018
The Archdiocese of Madrid has warned the Spanish government against plans to exhume the remains of the country’s late dictator, General Francisco Franco, without obtaining agreement from interested parties. “We want a solution which helps build a peaceful country,” said Rodrigo Pinedo Texidor, archdiocesan communications director, noting that the archdiocese is not for or against the removal of Franco’s remains
“We are against moves which don’t have his family’s consent and don’t consider what the Church has to say,” he told Catholic News Service after Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez confirmed plans to remove the remains from a state mausoleum at the Valley of the Fallen, near Madrid, by the end of July.

The street of the "Heroes of the Alcazar":
Plaque of General Franco street defaced by enemies of Spain:
Who were the "Heroes of the Alcazar?"
During the Spanish Civil War, Coronel José Moscardó Ituarte held the building against overwhelming Spanish Republican forces in the Siege of the Alcázar. The incident became a central piece of Spanish Nationalist lore, especially the story of Moscardó's son Luis. The Republicans took 16-year old Luis hostage, and demanded that the Alcázar be surrendered or they would kill him. Luis told his father, "Surrender or they will shoot me." His father replied, "Then commend your soul to God, shout 'Viva Cristo Rey' and die like a hero." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alc%C3%A1zar_of_Toledo
Recently one of our Eponymous Flower correspondents traveled to Avila, Spain, birthplace of Queen Isabel the Catholic, St. Theresa of Jesus, St. John of the Cross, and St. Peter of Alcantara. Since the evil socialist government of Jose Luis Zapatero came to power in 2004, little by little monuments which commemorate General Francisco Franco, the victory of Spain over communism, and the martyrs of the Red Terror have been removed. In 2007, the Spanish government mandated the removal of these monuments by law under "La ley de memoria histórica." In many places street names having to do with the Catholic side during the war have been changed to generic names. Nevertheless, if you really search you can still find many monuments to Franco and Catholic Spain. The execution of the removal of the plaques and monuments is left up to the municipalities. Some areas of Spain with a conservative majority have rebelled and quietly left the monuments and plaques as they are. Here is one such plaque that can still be found in Avila. We will leave the exact location of this plaque a secret so that Zapatero's henchmen do not disturb it.
Here is the English translation of the plaque:
In this city, birthplace of Saint Theresa of Jesus and capital of the Province which saw the birth of the great Queen Isabel the Catholic, no offense against the morals of Christ will be tolerated under any pretext.
Avila is loyal and will not betray those who gave their lives for God and for Spain during this glorious crusade.
Avila- May 1941 Up with Spain! Long live Christ the King!"

"The 20th of November is synonymous with
Spanish Catholic Patriotism"
by Jose Luís Corral
Translated from issue #640 of the Siempre P'alante magazine. http://spalante.es/
Since the death of the last Catholic head of state, Francisco Franco, on November 20th, 1975, the 20th of November has become synonymous with Catholic Spain. Every year throughout the peninsula the anniversary of Franco's death, which also coincides with the death of Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera in 1936, is commemorated.
On a national level, the memorial services in the Valle de los Caidos and the Plaza de Oriente have served as a testimony to the world that Catholicism is not dead in Spain. However, the enemies of God and Spain, have tried to suppress these celebrations and, unfortunately, have had success in doing so.
The attacks on the Valle de Los Caidos culminated with the nefarious “Law of Historical Memory” which prohibits anyone from entering the Basilica grounds with any political or religious regalia. Not only that, but this law has effectively barred visitors from seeing the the largest and most significant architectural monument of the twentieth century. Despite the persecution, due to the heroic resistance of the Benedictine Community that is adjacent to the Basilica, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered outdoors on the grounds near the Basilica.
Due to the prohibition of Mass in the Basilica, the Francisco Franco Foundation has been forced to move their yearly Traditional Latin Mass to the Church of Santa Gema in Madrid at 8:30 p.m.
On the same day the traditional “Christ the King” dinner, which is organized by the Movimiento Católico Espanol and the Acción Juvenil Española, will take place at the Hotel Mayorazgo near Gran Via and Plaza España in Madrid.
On Sunday the 21st the Nation Confederation of Veterans gathering in the Plaza de Oriente will feature speakers such as Blas Piñar as well as patriotic hymns and marches.
The weekend events will conclude with a dinner organized by Fuerza Nueva in the Hotel Centro Norte, near Chamartín Station in Madrid.
