Praha/Prague is a beautiful Medieval city located on the banks of the Danube River. The Czechs were victims of Hitler’s march into the Sudetenland. With early Western support and the famed Skoda assault weapon factory (Which now makes cars) and with good mountains for a resistance movement, perhaps the Czechs could have stopped Hitler prior to the invasion of Poland in the beginning of World War II.
The early Medieval history of Praha/Prague was tragic when Hussites slashed the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna. At the end of World War II, The Major Zeman generation of Communists took over and St. Vitus Cathedral, one of the 20 largest Catholic churches in the world, became Communist state property. In 2011, with Austrian economics advocate Vaclav Klaus running things, the Cathedral sadly remains national state property. It should not be handed over to the scandal plagued Vatican II sect, but to those whose believe the ancient faith of the Council of Trent and Vatican I. Saint Vitus is a Sicilian saint that became one of the favored Fourteen Holy Helpers of the First Crusade, the only Crusade of humble no-names who achieved victory with constant prayer against overwhelming odds. The Crusades of the haughty well known kings all ended in defeat in the Levant to the Muslims. One needs the humility of the King with the Crown of Thorns.
