The idea of a ‘holy grail’ and a secret bloodline of Jesus is an idea which for a while, seemed set to change the world and rock the foundations of church history and world politics to its foundation.
The story was perfectly and beautifully framed and cleverly sought to tie together some of the most enduring mysteries of French folklore, art and political history.
It rummaged through state archives and threw light on a peculiar French secret society and the equally bizarre mythos and personalities of this secret group known as The Priory of Sion, which, several writers summized, was the ultimate secret hidden power behind the world and whose grandmasters has apparently included the greatest minds of their generation.
It rifled through myths and mysteries lost in remote French villages: it revisited the uncanny and sinister myth of Rennes le Chateau and the singular life of Abbe Sauniere and found a solution to this enduring enigma.
It also pored over the odd codes hidden in the paintings of Nicholas Poussin and managed to tie him and his work into a monumental conspiracy thousands of years old.
It was a beautifully structured piece of work and clearly the work of clever and resourceful minds.
Sadly however, it was all absolute rubbish.
The Priory of Sion for instance was nothing more interesting than a secret society operating in Nazi occupied France and dedicated to the cult of Charles de Gaulle and ensuring that their man take the reigns of government in a post-war world. The excellent myth-busting work of Clive Prince and Lynn Picknett and their book The Sion Revelation explores the truth about The Priory of Sion.
The Priory of Sion has now resubmerged into historical irrelevance and we can safely declare after all the over-inflated hype and propaganda has died down, that the secret grand master of the whole world was not an obscure eldery Frenchman with a fondness for riding his bicycle.
Quite why this idea of Jesus having offspring and apparently creating a bloodline which now rules the world, was so expertly propagated through an apparently scholarly and enthralling non-fiction work called Holy Blood Holy Grail written by Freemason Michael Beigent, then the international best seller by Freemason Dan Brown called The Da Vinci Code and then a blockbuster movie starring Freemason Tom Hanks and directed by Freemason Ron Howard, we can only guess. But perhaps it has something to do with Freemasons.
|Tom Hanks and the Masonic sign of fidelity.|
Time and research has fortunately buried the work of the Dan Brown with sheer weight of evidence, research and manifest evil becoming exposed to the public gaze, that the Illuminati do exist, so much so that even members themselves are owning up to it, albeit using silly coded hand-signs and occult symbols in the media.
But what was the purpose behind Holy Blood Holy Grail? Was its intention to defuse something potentially sinister in the history of France and disguise it as something else?
I have a particular interest in one facet of the myth alluded to in Holy Blood Holy Grail, in particular the story of the Black Virgin which was used by Baigent to be evidence of the arrival of Mary Magdalene, who was presumed to be carrying Jesus’ child and be herself the receptacle of the so-called Holy Grail.
I used to live in a town in France called Le Puy en Velay which was one of the towns which shared in the cult of the black Madonna and statues of the black virgin were seen at various locations throughout the town and where a procession takes place each August 15th which attracts thousands of ostensibly Christian pilgrims from around the world.
|Le Puy en Velay: Cult of La Vierge Noire.|
The cult of the black Madonna even extends to Ukraine where she is known as The Queen of the Carpathans and we can observe from this that the cult extended even to the Translyvanian mountains, the home of Vlad the Impaler.
This supposed, Sangreal, or Holy royal blood thus has spread throughout the world. At least this is what the Freemasons Michael Baigent, Dan Brown, Tom Hanks and Ron Howard have conspired to want us to think it is. In reality it is literally the very opposite. Admittedly it is the royal blood, it is the blood of genetically inherited madness: the bloodline of Cain. However it has nothing to do with Jesus, the 'Sara' summised by Baigent to be the daughter of Jesus and Mary was in fact an Egyptian servant of the three Maries: Mary Salome (mother of apostles John and James) Mary Jacobe and Mary Magdalene.
In fact there is even some doubt that Mary Magdalene was even one of the Maries to arrive at Sainte Marie de la Mer, local legend states that there were in fact only two Maries: Mary Jacobe and Mary Salome.
The third Mary: Mary Magdalene was apparently added to the story in the Legenda Aurea, written and compiled from a strange collection of haliographies from the Dominican order, by the archbishop of Genoa: Jacobus de Voragine in the 13th Century.
We should be aware that Genoa was founded by the Phoenicians and that the city's great riches and wealth were a result of the legacy of the city as an ancient Canaanite trading post and that the banking fortune of that city are no doubt a result of the dissemination of the Babylonian banking system throughout the key ports of Italy as a result of Phoenician resurgence after the fall of Rome.
It seems interesting that a representative of the Genoese Canaanite elite became the 'authority' of matters of the early history of Jesus Christ and the apostles. For me this fact is as representative as any of the mechanism of the Canaanite corruption of the church, the falsification and rewriting of Apostolic history in order to serve the promulgation not of true Christianity, but of the Canaanite religion which has hijacked Christianity.
Among other 'interesting' augmentations to the early history of Christianity we find the tale of Saint Silvester who received a vision of Saint Peter which apparently gave him the miraculous power to exorcise demons from a dragon, resident in a pit in Rome. Subsequent to this demonic exorcism the dragon was baptised and apparently became a happy Christian.
|Saint Silvester and the friendly Christian dragon.|
The Legende Aurea, or Golden Legend was so popular that it was printed in more editions than the Bible and one can well imagine, was more widely read and accessible than the Bible itself especially since there were so many papal decrees against translating and even owning a copy of the official Latin Bible.
Source: Bridging the Gap - Lectio Divina, Religious Education, and the Have-not's by Father John Belmonte, S.J.The Golden Legend was even translated and printed in English by William Caxton in 1483, half a century before the actual first printing of William Tyndal's English Bible translation, for which he was strangled and burned at the stake in 1536, by agents of the Roman church at the prison of Vilvoorden near Brussels.

We prohibit also that the laity should be permitted to have the books of the Old or New Testament; unless anyone from motive of devotion should wish to have the Psalter or the Breviary for divine offices or the hours of the blessed Virgin; but we most strictly forbid their having any translation of these books. http://www.aloha.net/~mikesch/banned.htm
Contrary to the writings and inventions of a 13th century Phoenician archbishop there is actually no record of the arrival of Mary Magdalene at Sainte Maries de la Mer at all, and the official local lore indicates that only two Maries were present: Mary Salome and Mary Jacobe, and you can check for yourself in the following tourist board description of the pilgrimages of the 24th and 25th of May, there is absolutely no mention of Mary Magdalene. http://www.avignon-et-provence.com/saintes-maries-de-la-mer/gypsy-pilgrimage/#.VqlBsiMgXIU
There is a vague and strange reference to the presence of Mary Magdalene, who apparently preached in Marseille and afterwards spent 30 years living in a cave in Saint Baume and there is a gothic church of the 13th century which claims to hold her skull as a holy relic. Yet there was no local folklore on this subject, unlike the gypsy association and subterranean altar of the Saint Maries church, the whole tale of Mary Magdalene's presence in France apparently seems to have come to the Charles II King of Naples in a dream and may have been more in line with instituting the veneration of a pagan Mother-Goddess or Ishtar Queen of Heaven, disguised as Christian lore.
A lot of these strange tales seem to originate from amongst the Freemasons and other secret European fraternities, and just as the Masons Baigent and Dan Brown worked to attempt to subvert the story of Christ with a strange tale of a mythical bloodline, which handily they claim found its way into the secret societies and indeed, that the secret societies themselves are part of Jesus' bloodline.
Other strange and unlikely stories of French folklore, were perpetuated by the French Rose Croix and Freemasons at early points in history. One was that one of the Master builders of the Temple of Solomon, a man called Master Jacques was born in a French town called Cartes and whose name was given to one of the famous pillars of that Temple Jachin and one of the key symbolic myths of Freemasonry. It is likely that this is a mythologization of Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Templars, who is generally assumed to be the progenitor of the Freemasonry, and seeking to increase the importance of Freemasonry in affairs of ancient times, and this is exactly the purpose of the Baigent/Dan Brown Masonic swindle. http://compilhistoire.pagesperso-orange.fr/Compagnonnagefmrc.htm#12
These stories serve to try to increase the prestige of the Freemasons and in this way they attempt to claim ownership and involvement in key events in history which really they have no business with, but there is something else hiding in plain sight behind this talk of the supposed royal bloodline which arrived in France sometime in or around the year 40 AD.
The focus should be taken from the two (or even three) Maries, but placed on the curious character of Sarah la Ka, or Black Sarah, depending on the version of the story she was either an Egyptian maid on the boat with the Maries, or that she was a Romani woman who miraculously foretold the arrival of the boat from Palestine.
The following is taken from Wikipedia:
According to various legends, during a persecution of early Christians, commonly placed in the year 42, Lazarus, his sisters Mary and Martha, Mary Salome (the mother of the Apostles John and James), Mary Jacobe and Maximin were sent out to sea in a boat. They arrived safely on the southern shore of Gaul at the place later called Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Sarah, a native of Berenice Troglodytica, appears as the black Indo-Egyptian maid of one of the Three Marys, usually Mary Jacobe. (The natives of Berenice Troglodytica had ancestors who once came from the Malabar Coast, through Indo-Roman trade relations, and settled in Egypt (Roman province) and intermarried with Egyptians.)
Though the tradition of the Three Marys arriving in France stems from the High Middle Ages, appearing for instance in the 13th century Golden Legend, Saint Sarah makes her first appearance in Vincent Philippon's book The Legend of the Saintes-Maries (1521), where she is portrayed as "a charitable woman that helped people by collecting alms, which led to the popular belief that she was a Gypsy." Subsequently, Sarah was adopted by Romani as their saint.
Another account has Sarah welcoming the Three Marys into Gaul. Franz de Ville (1956) writes:The only problem with this second theory is that it wasn't until the 15th Century that Gypsies made an appearance in France and Spain.
One of our people who received the first Revelation was Sara the Kali. She was of noble birth and was chief of her tribe on the banks of the Rhône. She knew the secrets that had been transmitted to her... The Rom at that period practiced a polytheistic religion, and once a year they took out on their shoulders the statue of Ishtari (Astarte) and went into the sea to receive benediction there. One day Sara had visions which informed her that the Saints who had been present at the death of Jesus would come, and that she must help them. Sara saw them arrive in a boat. The sea was rough, and the boat threatened to founder. Mary Salome threw her cloak on the waves and, using it as a raft, Sarah floated towards the Saints and helped them reach land by praying.
What is stranger still is the incredible reach of this cult, on not only Europe but the rest of the world, though it is particularly connected to the Catholic world.
Anthropologists and historians are now firm that the Romani or Gypsy people have their origins in India and migrated out of India some time in the 11th century as a result of fleeing from Islamic raids. The Romani people therefore have Indian cultural ancestry and took their religious beliefs and their pantheon of Gods and Goddesses with them on their travels.
“Some Romani groups in Europe today appear to maintain elements of Shaktism or goddess-worship; the Rajputs worshipped the warrior-goddess Parvati, another name for the female deity Sati-Sara, who is Saint Sarah, the Romani Goddess of Fate. That she forms part of the yearly pilgrimage to La Camargue at Stes. Maries de la Mer in the south of France is of particular significance; here she is carried into the sea just as she is carried into the waters of the Ganges each December in India. Both Sati-Sara and St. Sarah wear a crown, both are also called Kali, and both have shining faces painted black. Sati-Sara is a consort of the god Ðiva, and is known by many other names, Bhadrakali, Uma, Durga and Syamaamong them.” http://www.radoc.net/radoc.php?doc=art_b_history_romanireligion&lang=en&articles=true
Saint Sara, the Mother of Darkness to the Romani people is also known as Sara Kali and are always depcited as black and specifically referred to as 'black Goddesses'. If we factor in the Indian origins of the Romani then we can clearly see that La Vierge Noire or black Madonna who graces churches and monasteries and holy sites throughout the world is in fact the Hindu Goddess of Death: Kali.
In India even in recent times, children have been reportedly sacrificed to the Goddess Kali.
Ten days ago Sumitra and her two sons crept to their neighbour's home and abducted three-year-old Aakash Singh as he slept. They dragged him into their home and the eldest son performed a puja ceremony, reciting a mantra and waving incense. Sumitra smeared sandalwood paste and globules of ghee over the terrified child's body. The two men then used a knife to slice off the child's nose, ears and hands before laying him, bleeding, in front of Kali's image.
Police in Khurja say dozens of sacrifices have been made over the past six months. Last month, in a village near Barha, a woman hacked her neighbour's three-year-old to death after a tantrik promised unlimited riches. In another case, a couple desperate for a son had a six-year-old kidnapped and then, as the tantrik chanted mantras, mutilated the child. The woman completed the ritual by washing in the child's blood.Many of the locations where a cult of the Black Virgin exists are also places which are rumoured to feature Satanic blood rituals and human sacrifice. A prime location in particular is the Abbey of Montserrat, some 30 miles from Barcelona which Spanish researcher Alberto Canosa has connected to the high-profile murders of three young Spanish teenager girls, abducted on their way to a disco, and the enacting of Satanic ritual involving some of the most powerful people within the Spanish political and religious elite.
The following post was made by a member of David Icke's OTO infiltrated forum, and is a rare example of actual conspiracy research in what has sadly now become a vapid and trivial online chat-zone where real researchers and Illuminati insiders are banned and intimidated with the collusion of its pagan-cultist Moderator team.
One of the biggest crimes in this satanic monastery happened in 1992, the famous Alcasser girls case!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Alcasser_Girls
The Devil Rides Out?
These murders were particularly shocking, due to the tortures and sexual assaults inflicted on the three young girls. The girls were abducted on the symbolic ritual date of Friday 13th November.
- The Bible assigns '13' the meaning of "rebellion against constituted authority", plus the depravity that caused Satan to rebel against God.
- The occultist assigns '6' to represent the number of man, and the number '7' to represent the number of divine perfection. Thus, as a person climbs that "Jacob's Ladder" toward self-perfection in the realm of the occult, the number '13' represents the state of divine perfection, self-achieved perfection, and Illumination (6+7 = 13).
The supposed murderer Alberto Angles was apparently allowed to escape and possibly returned to his native Brazil. To add insult to injury the father of one of the murdered girls, Miriam (Mary) was actually sued by the same police force who investigated the case and apparently managed to allow a cornered killer to escape.
Only in Spain. Reminds me of Robert Murat raking in nearly a million in 'damages' from the UK press. Maybe something to do with having Freemason lawyers.
'As yet unfounded theories abound, with many saying they believed Anglés and Ricart were merely the kidnappers being paid handsomely by a sadistic paedophile racket, who also paid them to take the blame for the case.
Those who believe this consider the real killers and torturers were filming their actions for snuff movies and that they were people of extreme wealth or power, influential enough that the Spanish justice system has worked to cover them up and used Anglés and Ricart as scapegoats.
But evidence made public to date appears to show it was a random brutal murder by two men with sadistic sexual tendencies.
Miriam's father was interviewed on the Valencia region's Canal 9 shortly after the girls' murder and spoke out about the cover-up theory involving influential public figures.
He was successfully sued for defamation by the police investigating the case and ordered to pay them 285,000 euros in compensation, which was eventually paid by the TV channel.http://www.thinkspain.com/news/versionimprimir.asp?x=34tger634sdg34&y=5346345645634&CodNoticia=23442
1. The McCanns' co-ordinating lawyer, Edward Smethurst, who was recently accused by Rochdale Borough Council of wholesale breach of planning laws in converting his barn down Meadowhall Lane on the edge of the Rochdale moors, is a confirmed Freemason. Edward Smethurst is the in-house lawyer for double glazing multi-millionaire Brian Kennedy's Latium empire, and flew out with Kennedy in November 2007 on a surprising mission to meet with the leading suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann - Robert Murat (this topic is covered on other threads in this forum).
2. The lawyers who act for the McCanns' 'Find Madeleine Fund', Bates, Wells and Braithwaite, carry out substantial work for the Grand Freemasonry Lodge in London (HQ of U.K. Freemasonry) and for other Freemasonic organisations.
It has been claimed that Dr Gerald McCann is a Freemason, but no credible evidence of this has been produced.
The other presumed murderer, Miguel Ricart was sentenced to 170 years in prison but thanks to the European Court of Human Rights he was released in October 2013 and is very much alive and at-large. Possibly because he was a patsy after-all so his early release was secured behind the scenes.
