Cleveland TLM Friends was asked to post this information about Blessed Karl of Austria Events in the Northeast of the United States for October 2013.
Catholics should know about Blessed Karl. http://www.crisismagazine.com/2012/blessed-karl-von-habsburg
"From the very beginning, Karl conceived of his office “as a holy service to his people” and his chief concern was “to follow the Christian vocation to holiness.” The archbishop of Budapest who crowned Karl King of Hungry recalled that “it was neither the ornamentation nor the pomp that interested him, it was only the duty that he was undertaking before God, before the nation and before the Church. He wished to be worthy of this, for which he had been chosen.” Before the high altar in the magnificent Matthias Corvinus church in Budapest, Karl pledged himself to work tirelessly for peace and justice in his realm."
