  An Emperor Blessed by Christopher Westley
To many, including myself, Karl of Austria was a man of holy virtue who happened to be one of the last symbols of the dying European order that existed before the ascendancy of mass democracy.
First, Karl was a man of enormous personal piety and courage who stood athwart the rise of the nation-states and their perpetual wars for perpetual peace – wars which we can date with the opening skirmishes of the First World War up to this week’s bombing of Samarra in Iraq.
It is hard not to wonder whether another motive for the advancement of Karl’s cause at the present time is for the Catholic Church in Austria, which is currently mired in scandal and, after eight decades of dependence on the Austrian government, with church membership rolls at record low levels.
