What Does A CRUSADER Knight Look Like? Like This…

In a world of rainbow flag waving soyboy, anti-christ heathens, real men are needed but in short supply. Dod you have what it takes to be a CRUSADER Knight of The Holy Rosary with me? Here’s what Saint Bernard of Clairvaux says a Knight does with his Saturday.

Their hair is worn short, in conformity with the Apostle’s saying

There is no distinction of persons among them, and deference is shown to merit rather than to noble blood.  They rival one another in mutual consideration, and they carry one another’s burdens, thus fulfilling the law of Christ.  No inappropriate word, idle deed, unrestrained laugh, not even the slightest whisper or murmur is left uncorrected once it has been detected. 

They foreswear dice and chess, and abhor the chase; they take no delight in the ridiculous cruelty of falconry, as is the custom.  As for jesters, magicians, bards, troubadours and jousters, they despise and reject them as so many vanities and unsound deceptions. 

Their hair is worn short, in conformity with the Apostle’s saying, that it is shameful for a man to cultivate flowing locks.  Indeed, they seldom wash and never set their hair – content to appear tousled and dusty, bearing the marks of the sun and of their armour.

    Dude, that’s ME!

    OK, wait.

    I shower or bathe from time to time – I do not make my brother’s smell the stink of human stench when I can help it; when we all are in a state of turmoil I offer alternatives to the latest gizmos that can clean us up quickly but there is always tomorrow, and tomorrow might be a day of rest or a day of preparation, or it might be another day of battle (who knows? I had to call a plumber one day. It happens Oh, deer!)

    “Nobody gets it like they want it to be,” said that one late popular troubadour Jackson Browne (see the 2DEC2019 version of Youtube’ own https://youtu.be/kzQM_NfT-Jc Boulevard).

    Nobody gets it like they want it to be. If you have to show up looking as if you were rode hard and put away wet, that tells me you were probably busy taking care of business BUT if you show up without a flashlight handy and you didn’t have to (note the repetition of the term “have to” in this sentence) you will render the impression of one who did not know what to do next.

    Suck it up and Drive on, and let your boss know you are working on it.

    Other than that, it’s about time I had fasted.
