Message to the participants of the demonstration on January 15th in Rome
Praised be Jesus Christ.

Dear brothers and sisters, allow me to address all of you as a Pastor who above all has the salvation of souls at heart. My words are for each of you: for those who have the grace to be a Christian and for those who are still far from God; for those who have understood the spiritual dimension of this battle and for those who believe that it is only an attack on civil liberties; for those who are aware of the antichristic matrix of what is happening and for those who are exasperated by the absurd restrictions imposed by the governments enslaved by the Great Reset.

Your protest joins that of millions of other people. A courageous protest that starts from the sharing of some fundamental principles such as the right to natural freedoms, to the conscious choice of treatments and to respect for one's convictions in health and civil matters. If you can demonstrate firmly and peacefully to defend your inalienable rights, this day can be remembered when all this is over. I therefore urge you not to give in to the provocations of those who wait only to repress your dissent by force.

This battle cannot and must not be exhausted in a demand for rights and freedom, regardless of Truth and Justice. As I have already said on other occasions, freedom is such only if it is accomplished within the limits of the Good. Those who discriminate against you today, those who prevent you from working, going to school, traveling and entering restaurants and shops are the same people who have been telling you for decades that you are "free" to offend God, to break His Commandments, to divorcing, killing children in the womb, the elderly and the sick in hospital beds; that you are "free" to decide when to live and when to die, to decide what is right and what is wrong; that you can deny your past, your Christian civilization, your identity as Catholics and as Italians. As long as all this responds to the ideology of death,

But this is not freedom! The freedom to which you must aspire, dear brothers and sisters, is founded on Our Lord Jesus Christ, who said: "The truth will make you free" (Jn 8:32), referring to Himself, "Way, Truth and Life" (Jn 14, 6).

Return to God! Make Him reign first of all in your hearts, keeping you in his grace through prayer and the sacraments. Make Him reign in your families, where the fidelity of the spouses, the education of children, the care of the elderly and the weak constitute a formidable defense against those who want to destroy the social fabric. Make Him reign in civil society, conforming the laws of the State to the Law of God, starting with respect for the sacredness of life and the common good. Make Him reign in the courtrooms, in the school, in the university, in the workplace, in the hospital wards.

If you believe that you can free yourselves from the chains of this tyranny with your own strength, you are wrong: because it is precisely in putting the Lord aside that you condemn yourself to the failure of your every action, even laudable. Instead, have the courage to proudly claim your identity, to bear witness to your Faith, to assert your rights as Christians. And above all, dear brothers and sisters, have the courage to place yourselves under the protection of Jesus Christ: "I have overcome the world" (Jn 16:33), the Lord said. If your spiritual battle will be under the banner of Christ the King, victory is certain, and the servants of this infernal dictatorship will retreat, because Satan cannot conquer the One who by His Sacrifice has destroyed his power, and She who by divine decree it will crush his head.

Please, I implore you: huddle under the Cross of Christ, and place yourselves all under the mantle of the Most Holy Virgin. It will not be the Constitution or the Declaration of Human Rights that will save you, but the Faith. That Faith which made Europe great, which built Christian civilization, which made the arts and sciences flourish. That Faith that leads us to reach out to the poor, to give comfort to the sick and the dying, to strengthen in Charity those bonds of brotherhood that today we see destroyed and denied by an ideology that admits everything, tolerates everything, except the Good.

I also appeal to those who are beginning to recognize the deceptions and lies that we have been denouncing for two years: have a leap of pride, a movement of honesty and honor! You doctors and paramedics, do not remain silent in the face of what is happening in hospitals, in violation of the oath you have taken. You magistrates and police, do not become accomplices of traitors and corrupt who obey the globalist oligarchy to destroy the nation and enslave the citizens. You politicians and representatives of institutions, denounce the interference of powers that no one has elected and that conspire against the peoples. You journalists, defend the truth and do not connive with a power based on lies and crime. You shopkeepers, restaurateurs, operators: open your shops and your shops and stop indulging the delirium of an authority that legitimizes itself only with the use of force and intimidation. And you priests, parish priests and bishops, always ready to welcome immigrants and illegal immigrants: remember that the Lord has ordered to love our neighbor, that is, the one who is closest to us: do not go along with the pandemic narrative, do not close your churches to the faithful, and above all remember that it is Our Lord Jesus Christ who saves, not an experimental serum produced with abortive fetuses!

Each of you, today, in this square and throughout Italy, find that humanity that has been compromised by these months of collective madness. Discrimination ceases, and with it the hateful marginalization of the healthy, the ghettoization of dissenters, the criminalization of those who until yesterday were our brother and who today find themselves deprived of work and means of subsistence. Let's get out of this delusion, in the name of God!

When the authority conspires against the nation and abuses its power against the citizens, civil disobedience and conscientious objection are a must. Your children will thank you for what you do, provided that your action is enlightened by Faith and inflamed by Charity. If you just want to go back to being free to offend God and break His Law, you will never get out of this hellish dystopia.

When we ask the Lord "give us today our daily bread", before these material requests we say: "your kingdom come, your will be done". Because only where Christ reigns is there justice, peace, harmony, prosperity.

This is why I invite you all to recite together, with faith and with filial trust in God's help, the prayer that the Lord has taught us: Our Father ...

"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
