The Southern Cross is unapologetically Catholic, and unapologetically Southern. Inspired to fill the Dixie-shaped void in the heart of Catholic media, we’re here to bring powerful and informative content to both Catholics in the South, and Southerners not yet united to the Church. We gather and deliver commentary about politics, the culture and heritage of the South, and the spiritual life, all in one place.
In our era, where zeal for Catholic Tradition only blossoms, and when our Southern heritage has never been more under attack, we’re here to stand up for both Southern virtue, which we believe is incomplete without the guardianship of Jesus Christ, and for Christ’s Universal Church.
Never before has it been more necessary for us to take stock of where our homeland is headed, spiritually and culturally.
Our slogan is the same motto as the Confederate States of America, “Deo Vindice,” because we believe that before all politicians, before all authorities, and before all events, it is God who will vindicate the hearts of men. Our namesake, The Southern Cross, has been turned into a “hate symbol” by the culture industry because the emotional blackmail of political enemies has taken precedence over the respect owed to the Southern heritage for all that Southern sons have given to America over the centuries. In response to these libels, we give a faithful Christian witness to the dignity and rectitude of Southern heritage, and we aim to educate as many as possible about the saving mission and spiritual life of the Universal Church.
We hope you enjoy our content.
“Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles.”
– General Robert E. Lee
“Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; give us an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; give us an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
– Saint Thomas Aquinas, OP
