The Vatican & the power of Egyptian occult symbols
Here are the rosary beads I bought at the Vatican. Entwined with them are worry beads I purchased in Jerusalem:
As you know the Cardinals of the Catholic Church have decided on a new pope. Francis I will bring a new outlook to the papacy. As he is a Jesuit with a vow of poverty I hope he decides to sell off most of the Vatican art collection to fund hospitals and other good works. If he does something radical like this he will say more about his commitment to eradicate poverty than a hundred sermons.
Before I left Rome I heard that the report into the leaks at the Vatican, one of the reasons for Pope Benedict resigning, will be given to the new pope.
For my previous post on some of the scandals that have emerged in the last few weeks go here.
The report is known throughout the Vatican as the Relatio (Narration). It is held in two stiff, unmarked red folders and is around 300 pages long. Currently it is in a safe in the papal apartments of the Apostolic Palace overlooking St Peter’s Square.
In the folders is the report of three cardinals/investigators, appointed by Benedict to report on the leaking of documents from his study. The cardinals, include a leading Spanish member of the Opus Dei fellowship, Cardinal Julián Herranz.
Some of what is in the report is said to be truly compromising. According to rumor, they reveal a gay sex ring in the Vatican. If the church is speaking against homosexuality while some of its most senior clergy practice it, its crimes go beyond hypocrisy to betrayal of the spiritual well being and peace of mind of its followers.
I am intrigued at the symbolism and superstitions that revolve around the Vatican and the Sistine chapel, where the Cardinals spent most of their time deciding on the new pope.
First of all, the silver and gold keys in the Vatican coat of arms symbolize the golden and silver gates in the Egyptian occult system, which the soul passes through on its way through birth to death. These are also the keys of the kingdom Christ gave to Peter.
The large Perugino fresco – Delivery of the Keys – in the Sistine chapel depicts this moment. For what these keys mean in the occult system see this video. If you have a more mundane explanation please comment below.
As I edit The Manhattan Puzzle, my next novel in the puzzle series, I am genuinely looking for people who wish to input their ideas about the occult symbols that the Vatican uses.
The prayers from the Vatican and from the Sistine Chapel are believed by hundreds of millions to be enhanced by the sanctity of the individuals and the power that resides at the site of the Vatican.
The Vatican is an impressive place. The obelisk in the centre of the open area in front of St Peter’s was taken by the Roman Emperor Caligula from Heliopolis, Egypt, to decorate the spina of his circus on this site, and is the last visible remnant of that circus.
The obelisk represents the sun god Ra. It was also believed in Egypt that the god resided within the obelisk.
All the obelisks from the Roman period, except for the Vatican obelisk, fell and were re-erected in different locations.
In 326, the first church was built near the site after the Emperor Constantine gave the lands in that area to the Christian church. The Vatican is the powerful legacy, seventeen hundred years later, of the support of the first Christian Emperor for Christianity.
I wonder what he would have thought of the scandals engulfing the church. Perhaps he wouldn’t have been surprised at all. I wonder what Pope Francis thinks of it all.
