Father Paul Wickens is the late traditional Catholic Priest that established the communities of Saint Anthony of Padua West Orange and North Caldwell, NJ
It is to be remembered that the many hills that Father Paul Wickens fought on , the hill he died in the battle on was the protection of children and Catholic education
He fought the Diocesan hierarchy tooth and nail over the evil influx of sex education and warned everyone that if not fought it would balloon into a full scale infiltration of the sexual revolution
Looking back at his fight and the results in our current Catholic education it appears as if to be in the realms of prophesy

Tower Of Tribute Award To The Late Father Paul Wickens Saint Anthony of Padua West Orange – On Daily Catholic
Some of the facts obviously now dated with the post 2007 developments order of the Institute Of Christ The King Sovereign Priest having established a Traditional Oratory at Saint Anthony Of Padua Chapel – the article has some interesting historicity in the chronology of Father P. Wickens final days including albeit some rather subjective points, the most accurate portrayal of the evil onslaughts of classroom sex education of minors and also while in the absence of parents

Classroom Sex Education
The final straw—or, as author Randy Engel noted, The Final Plague—was the devilish promotion of classroom sex education. It was bad enough that Catholic bishops energetically lobbied for this perversion into the public schools. But when these same New Jersey bishops mandated the sex ed in Catholic schools (from kindergarten through Grade 10), Fr. Wickens called a press conference to express the outrage of Catholic parents.
The Liberals React
The local modernist bishops (Bps. Gerety and McCarrick) immediately moved to punish Fr. Wickens. His salary, pension savings, hospitalization, stipends, and all temporal resources were taken away. Fr. Wickens discovered that recourse to civil and ecclesiastical courts was futile, because both judicial systems were in league with the liberal prelates. Every attempt for a fair hearing was met with a summary dismissal. No testimony, no witnesses, no depositions, no opportunity to present both sides of the dispute. Although John Paul II personally invited Fr. Wickens to concelebrate Mass with him in the Pope’s own chapel—obviously, a sign of solidarity and support—the Vatican was afraid to oppose the affluent Newark bishops. So be it! “God will provide”—and He did provide.

Speaking of soldiers dying in battle for Our Lady at the feet of our Savior Jesus Christ today is the Feast of Saint George
The real story of Saint George was that he was a Roman soldier from Greece killed by the emperor Diocletian for ending child sacrifice ( the dragon ) promoting Christianity and saving the King’s daughter by sword. He was most invoked by Crusader soldiers in defending the west against the Islam
If you want to see the full life size Saint George & Dragon there is one (made of brass & iron ) on the roof of the historic Jersey City Landmark Loews which is very much worth a visit & is on the tradition family & property list of must see & support places and societies Next weekend Jersey City Landmark Loews will be showing the old King Kong movies http://loewsjersey.org/ . You have to go at least an hour earlier than start time if you wish to see a good portion of the restored movie palace and hear the organist play the restored organ that comes up on an organ elevator
The Saint George on the roof use to be mechanical and slowed traffic in Journal Square to the slaying of the dragon at the turn of the 20th century It’s now semi restored and permanently affixed to the roof It also spurred his veneration at two area Catholic Churches which had large Saint George statues with candles veneration ( which obviously , as of this date- have not been restored )
Saint George Slays the Dragon – On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
The Princess Leads The Fiery Dragon St.-George-with-dragon
From the Book of Revelation 13:1-18 The two beasts
I, John, saw a wild beast come out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads; on its horns were ten diadems and on its heads blasphemous names. The beast I saw was like a leopard, but it had paws like a bear and the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave it his own power and throne, together with great authority.
I noticed that one of the beast’s heads seemed to have been mortally wounded, but this mortal wound was healed. In wonderment, the whole world followed after the beast. Men worshiped the dragon for giving his authority to the beast; they also worshiped the beast and said, “Who can compare with the beast, or come forward to fight against it?”
The beast was given a mouth for uttering proud boasts and blasphemies, but the authority it was given was to last only forty-two months. It began to hurl blasphemies against God, reviling him and the members of his heavenly household as well. The beast was allowed to wage war against God’s people and conquer them. It was likewise granted authority over every race and people, language and nation. The beast will be worshiped by all those inhabitants of earth who did not have their names written at the world’s beginning in the book of the living, which belongs to the Lamb who was slain.
Let him who has ears heed these words! If one is destined for captivity, into captivity he goes! If one is destined to be slain by the sword, by the sword he will be slain! Such is the faithful endurance that distinguishes God’s holy people.
Then I saw another wild beast come up out of the earth; it had two horns like a ram and it spoke like a dragon. It used the authority of the first beast to promote its interests by making the world and all its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed.
It performed great prodigies; it could even make fire come down from heaven to earth as men looked on. Because of the prodigies it was allowed to perform by authority of the first beast, it led astray the earth’s inhabitants, telling them to make an idol in honor of the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived. The second wild beast was then permitted to give life to the beast’s image, so that the image had the power of speech and of putting to death anyone who refused to worship it. It forced all men, small and great, rich and poor, slave and free, to accept a stamped image on their right hand or their forehead. Moreover, it did not allow a man to buy or sell anything unless he was first marked with the name of the beast or with the number that stood for its name.
A certain wisdom is needed here; with a little ingenuity anyone can calculate the number of the beast, for it is a number that stands for a certain man. The man’s number is six hundred sixty-six.
From the book On the Holy Spirit by Saint Basil the Great, bishop The Spirit gives life
Our Lord made a covenant with us through baptism in order to give us eternal life. There is in baptism an image both of death and of life, the water being the symbol of death, the Spirit giving the pledge of life. The association of water and the Spirit is explained by the twofold purpose for which baptism was instituted, namely, to destroy the sin in us so that it could never again give birth to death, and to enable us to live by the Spirit and so win the reward of holiness. The water into which the body enters as into a tomb symbolizes death; the Spirit instills into us his life-giving power, awakening our souls from the death of sin to the life that they had in the beginning. This then is what it means to be born again of water and the Spirit: we die in the water, and we come to life again through the Spirit.
To signify this death and to enlighten the baptized by transmitting to them knowledge of God, the great sacrament of baptism is administered by means of a triple immersion and the invocation of each of the three divine Persons. Whatever grace there is in the water comes not from its own nature but from the presence of the Spirit, since baptism is not a cleansing of the body, but a pledge made to God from a clear conscience.
As a preparation for our life after the resurrection, our Lord tells us in the gospel how we should live here and now. He teaches us to be peaceable, long-suffering, undefiled by desire for pleasure, and detached from worldly wealth. In this way we can achieve, by our own free choice, the kind of life that will be natural in the world to come.
Through the Holy Spirit we are restored to paradise, we ascend to the kingdom of heaven, and we are reinstated as adopted sons. Thanks to the Spirit we obtain the right to call God our Father, we become sharers in the grace of Christ, we are called children of light, and we share in everlasting glory. In a word, every blessing is showered upon us, both in this world and in the world to come. As we contemplate them even now, like a reflection in a mirror, it is as though we already possessed the good things our faith tells us that we shall one day enjoy. If this is the pledge, what will the perfection be? If these are the first fruits, what will the full harvest be?
