What I think was really terrible – as far as I could see – was that from the moment the Hollywood atmosphere began to penetrate civil society it met no resistance from the ecclesiastical society; and then it began to intoxicate even religious ambiences with loads and loads of secularism, frivolity, and liberalism. It is impossible to get more liberal than Hollywood. Each movie was, so to speak, a crusade against the Cross, opposed to the love of Christ, etc.

Then Catholic ambiences really lost that which they had before and which generated the “Catholic because monarchist, and monarchist because Catholic” spirit, the love of the crusades, being easily open to the Inquisition, etc.

A section from a Republican regiment led by general Canclaux massacred a group of Chouans sheltering in a chapel. The Chouans fought to the death. The picture shows the interior of the chapel after the departure of the Republican troops (whose storming of the building is symbolized by the hat with the tricolor cockade left abandoned on the ground). The dead bodies and broken church furnishings testify to the violence of the action. Painting by Alexandre Bloch.

The Cristeros were a crusade and, as a member of the Marian Congregation I often saw raving praise of them in Marian Catholic circles. I was very young and knew nothing about the Cristeros; I was [reading about] the Chouannerie. The Cristeros were a Mexican Chouannerie.
