St Dominique Venner (Died 2013)
Via Viatores Quaerit. – St Augustine
(The Way seeks Travellers)
May his Name be Blessed,
despairing of that peace of mind men seek,
awakened from the dream of his unrest,
to find within the Vision of his Mental Disarray
—clearing all the clouds away!
A suicide bomber dies
to leave more innocents for dead.
Dominique saw that he must martyrise
and cause no harm
to fifteen hundred of the Faithful
gathered in Notre Dame.
He held a mirror to awaken sleeping minds
to what they do not understand
—the creeping poisons that blind and bind
the soul and individual,
and destroy the anchors of family and fatherland.
'I have a strong belief
once they comprehend
the reason why I died.'
Satan sends his youngest daughter
to prostitute a human's body
before Jehovah's altar.
Je suis la voie qui cherche les voyageurs.
