R.I.P. Gen. Francisco Franco, Knight of Christ

In your charity please pray for the repose of the soul of His late Excellency General Francisco Franco, Knight of the Supreme Order of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the anniversary of whose death in 1975 we mark today. His flaws notwithstanding (such as his early Fascist leanings, his excesses in dealing with the national emergency, his failure to curb the post-War influence of the technocrats, and his caving in to the Vatican’s new post-Conciliar anti-Confessional State diplomacy), he was a distinguished anti-Communist, anti-Masonic, pro-family statesman who, for a time at least, stood for Catholicism as State religion and the Catholic Church as the Established Church. May he rest in peace.
