“National officials” refused to allow the dead heroes a common burial. So I dedicate the first volume of this work to them as a common memorial, that the memory of those martyrs may be a permanent source of light for the followers of our Movement.”
Sign Of The Cross
(In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Amen)
The Prayer To Saint Michael
“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.”
The Hail Mary
“Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.”
The Our Hitler
“O God, protect our Hitler.
Lead him in the correct path and bless his work.
O let your light triumph on earth,
and break the proud power of the enemy!
Grant our people the order, composure,
and peace of the German day that follows the dismal night.”
(German Catholic Priest Ottokar Kernstock – 1925)
On September 26th of 1923, Bavarian Prime Minister Eugen von Knilling declared a state of emergency and appointed Gustav von Kahr as state commissioner with dictatorial governing powers.
Germany was filled with political conflict and chaos. Hitler decided this was a critical opportunity to gain supporters and take control.
On November 8th, the National Socialist German Workers Party decided to march on the Bürgerbräukeller, a beer hall in Munich where Gustav von Kahr was making a speech to 3,000 people.
A group led by Hitler entered the beer hall, while 600 SA officers surrounded the building. Unable to be heard above the large crowd, Hitler fired a shot into the ceiling, jumped on a chair, and yelled:
“The national revolution has broken out! The hall is filled with six hundred men. Nobody is allowed to leave.”
To end the speech, he added:
“You can see that what motivates us is neither self-conceit or self-interest, but only a burning desire to join the battle in this grave eleventh hour for our German Fatherland … One last thing I can tell you. Either the German revolution begins tonight or we will all be dead by dawn!”
Amazingly, he had won the crowd over and they roared in approval.
Although the Putsch ultimately failed, the event did give Hitler his first exposure to national attention and a propaganda victory.
Hitler used his trial as an opportunity to spread his ideas. Every word he spoke was reported in the newspaper the next day. He also used his time in prison to write Mein Kampf.
Ultimately, the putsch changed Hitler’s outlook on violent revolution. From then on, he realized that he must follow the rules in order to gain public support. Later, he would be called Hitler Legalité (Hitler the Legal One).
The Eternal Rest Prayer:
Eternal rest, grant unto Adolf O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
Through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
