“For the Incarnate Word is our King, who came into this world to war with the devil; and all the saints who were before his coming are soldiers as it were, going before their King, and those who have come after and will come, even to the end of the world, are soldiers following their King. And the King himself is in the midst of His army and proceeds protected and surrounded on all sides by his columns. And although in a multitude as vast as this the kind of arms different in the sacraments and the observance of the peoples preceding and following, yet all are really serving the one King and following the one banner; all are pursuing the one enemy and are being crowned by the one victory.”
Hugh of St. Victor
This is the vision the Church has lost; Christ the Warrior King leading His trans generational army to conquer the enemy.
