A song dedicated to St Louis IX, a selfless ruler who brought prosperity to his land, while taking care to suppress usury, blasphemy, prostitution and threats to the Faith. He fed beggars from his table, ate what they left behind, washed their feet, and took care of lepers. When taken prisoner while crusading in Egypt, he took care to recite the breviary every day. One notable monument is the the exquisite Sainte-Chapelle, built to house the Crown of Thorns, close to the now ruinous Notre Dame. The Latin Emperor Baldwin had pawned it to a Venetian merchant and Louis redeemed it. Louis took seriously his title of Rex Christianissimus.

St Louis is quite topical as BLM rioters made efforts to vandalise his statue in St Louis, Missouri. Catholics and their priest Fr Stephen Shumacher managed to keep the statue safe. That priest was far better than than cowards like Bp Barron who said its the job of the laity to protect statues, while saying next to nothing, who is more concerned with making bank from his 'World on Fire' bible and going to the gym.
