Unholy Blood and the Black Grail.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

to what end? We saw how Dan Brown’s book The Lost Symbol was ostensibly
a book about the Illuminati but which reveals at the end (spoiler
coming) that the Illuminati didn’t exist after all and it was all made
up to further the personal agenda of a particular Catholic priest. So
apparently defusing the exposure of The Illuminati by siding with the
sceptics and claiming it to be just a fantasy of the tin-foil hat

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.

cult of the black Madonna is celebrated in various locations throughout
the world from Germany, Malta, Spain to locations in the New World like
Brazil and even Cuba, and there are said to be between 450 and 500
black Madonna statues in the world. However the cult seems to have a
particular focus in France which has 180 of these black Madonnas and in
particular to the south of France and a gipsy or ‘gitane’ town called
Sainte Maries-de-la-Mer which was made reference to in the Holy Blood
Holy Grail as the location of the arrival of Mary Magdalene from the
Holy Land.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Canon 14. 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. 

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.

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.

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 t
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.

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. 

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

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. 

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.[2]
(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.[3]

Another account has Sarah welcoming the Three Marys into Gaul. Franz de Ville (1956) writes:

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.[4]

only problem with this second theory is that it wasn't until the 15th
Century that Gypsies made an appearance in France and Spain.

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. 

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

One of the biggest crimes in this satanic monastery happened in 1992, the famous Alcasser girls case!

This news can be found in ABC newspaper! a famous spanish newspaper!

politicians, bankers that some of them become reptilians during these
satanic rituals. 

Alberto Canosa and more people are reporting these atrocities. 

Feel free to report it!

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.

  1. The Bible assigns '13' the meaning of "rebellion against constituted authority", plus the depravity that caused Satan to rebel against God.

  2. 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).

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.

and Ricart were merely the kidnappers being paid handsomely by a
sadistic paedophile racket, who also paid them to take the blame for the

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

So far as the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is concerned, freemasonry has been raised a couple of times:

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). 

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.

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

Beyonce and Miley witnessed the sacrifice of children to the Black
Madonna: Kali? Or are they just stupid bitches evoking forces they do
not understand?

Being Gay with Kali the destroyer. What are they trying to say?

thing is for sure, on that day sometime around 40 AD, if the story is
to be believed, along with some Biblical refugees from persecution in
Palestine, something else arrived, undetected, in the form of a woman
maid-servant who held pagan Canaanite beliefs so far removed the
hallowed company she had kept in that boat as to help almost completely
destroy the work and ministry of Jesus himself. She carried the
bloodline and belief system of Cain, either introducing it to France, or
at least, awakening something already there.

Sara La Kali, was one of the channels that brought the Illuminati to
Europe and the whole world, where it hid as one of many sleeping and
unsuspecting saints of the Catholic church, to be awakened by the blood
of young children.
