On the E.U. and the Immaculate Conception

150 years later and the Feast of the
Immaculate Conception
Lourdes – The Implications!!
England and Spain

The English historian and member of Parliament, Edward Gibbon (1737-1794) wrote that: “A victorious line of march had been prolonged above a thousand miles from the rock of Gibraltar in Spain to the banks of the Loire in France; the repetition of an equal space would have carried the Saracens to the confines of Poland and the Highlands of Scotland; the Rhine is not more impassable than the Nile or Euphrates, and the Arabian Fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the River Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Qur’an would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Muhammed.”(4) The Moorish Governor of Spain, Abdul Rahman Al-Ghafiqi, crossed the Pyrenees and invaded Loire where he met Charles in battle. In 732, Charles Martel and the Blessed Virgin halted the invading army of the Cordoban Emirate. Known as the Battle of Poitiers or the Battle of Tours, this was a crucial and decisive moment in the development of the European Christian civilization. The outcome secured Christianity in the region and prevented the Islamic takeover of the entire European Continent. Edward Gibbon’s hypothesis was thankfully prevented from turning into reality, however, England today seems threatened in like manner as never before.


October is the month dedicated to Our Lady’s Holy Rosary, within which are celebrated the modern Feast Days of ‘Our Lady of the Holy Rosary’ (October 7), ‘Our Lady’s Maternity’ (October 11), ‘Our Lady of the Pillar’ (October 12) and the last apparition of ‘Our Lady of Fatima’ (October 13). The Battle took place on October 10, 732, in the proximity of Tours and Poitiers in France. Previous to battle, Charles undertook certain preparations, which included the erection of numerous altars for the celebration of the Holy Mass and the supplication of the intercession of Our Lord and his Holy Mother for victory. In defense against the onslaught of the Moorish army, the Franks formed a large square formation. The Cordoban horsemen galloped towards Charles Martel’s forces. As the battle raged, Abdul Rahman Al-Ghafiqi was slain, the Moors left the battlefield a day later, abandoning their tents and allowing the army of Gaul to recapture the loot.
The translation of the Arabic medieval chronicle, Isidore of Beja’s Chronicle, states, “…and in the shock of the battle the men of the North seemed like North a sea that cannot be moved. Firmly they stood, one close to another, forming as it were a bulwark of ice; and with great blows of their swords they hewed down the Arabs. Drawn up in a band around their chief, the people of the Austrasians carried all before them. Their tireless hands drove their swords down to the breasts (of the foe).”(5) The Moorish invasion was directed towards the Church of Saint Martin and the City of Tours, however failed miserably at achieving its objective at founding a Cordoban base. The outcome resulted in 300,000 fallen Moors, as opposed to 1,500  Franks.
The Spanish Crusade
The great medieval epic ‘Chanson de Roland’ has been one of the historical sources supplying information regarding the eventful battles taking place during King Charles’ Spanish Campaign. The ‘History of Charlemagne and Roland,’ otherwise known today as the ‘Pseudo-Turpin,’ was authored by a monk in Galicia (France) during the times of the First Crusade. The intention was to honor Saint James, the holy Apostle of Christ and encourage the pilgrimage to his tomb. Pope Chalixtinus II (1119-1124) declared the ‘History of Charlemagne and Roland’ (Pseudo-Turpin) as reliable and factual and based on true events which transpired in Charles’ day. In our modern times, altering history by discrediting Saint James’ apparitions surely does not bring the blessings and graces God bestowed upon Charles the Great. An Islamic Prince, together with his invading army, caused stiff resistance against Charles’ Crusade. In 732, the Islamists fled to Spain and re-grouped in Aquitaine, France. One group inhabited a fortress situated on a cliff overhanging Lourdes and was referred to as the Castle of Mirambel. In 778, when Charles the Great returned from his Spanish Campaign, he laid siege to this castle. The commander of this garrison was called Mirat, a Jihadist who swore by Mohammed, that he would not surrender to any mortal man. Mirat was notoriously cunning, and the siege was bringing the fortified castle to a desperate situation. One day an eagle carrying a trout from the Gave River flew over the castle walls and dropped by accident the fish. Mirat had the idea of sending a messenger with the trout to Charles, as proof of the inexhaustible rations of the besieged garrison. Charles fell for the trick and was close to raising the siege. Fortunately, the army’s chaplain Bishop of Le Puy recognized the deception and obtained an audience with Mirat. The Bishop of Le Puy was sent as Charles’s emissary and met the Muslim confiding to him his own greatest treasure. The Islamists were at the end of their rations and the bishop saw for himself this fact and inquired about the refusal for surrender. Mirat spoke of his oath and the bishop replied: “Brave prince, you have sworn never to yield to any mortal man. Could you not with honor make your surrender to an immortal Lady? Mary, Queen of Heaven, has her throne at Le Puy, and I am her humble minister there. Would you desire also to serve this Queen and not surrender to men?”(2) The Islamic Commander was thus freed from his oath and received baptism at Le Puy under the name of ‘Lorus’ or ‘Lorda.’ He was then knighted by Charles and received the command of the Castle of Mirambel. Lourdes is derived from the name Lorus. One thousand years later this town witnessed the apparition of the Blessed Virgin to Saint Bernadette. Therefore, apart from Fatima, also does Lourdes relate to the conversion of Islamic Jihadists and Muslims to the knowledge of Redemption from the two falls.
Lourdes and Our Lady of Le Puy, what do these devotions and pilgrimage points represent for Spain, France and England ?

An article appearing in CatholicLife magazine (October 2007) titled “Our Lady of Westminster and the ‘Dowry of Mary,’” written by Christine Waters describes how the English tradition regarding ‘Our Lady’s Dowry’ beginning with King Edward the Confessor, during those times when the Holy House of Walsingham and Westminster Abbey were established, has a historical basis. According to the article’s author ‘Our Lady of the Pew’ or ‘Puy’ was venerated by King Edward III and his family in a building overlooking the Thames River called the Chapel of St. Stephen. A richly adorned statue of Our Lady of the Pew was present during King Edwards’s times (1355) and during King Henry III’s rule (1250), when devotion to Our Lady of the Pew in Westminster Palace was referred to as “the chapel in the King’s garden.” A second statue was donated by Countess Marie de St Paul in the 1370s and placed in the Benedictine Abbey of Westminster. This second statue became an object of veneration by the general public and it seems that this devotion might have surpassed Walsingham. The author cleverly points out the following, that the year 1380 was crucial for defining the tradition that Our Lady was the seat of power and authority in England. The English tradition of England as being Our Lady’s Dowry (up to the year 1380) must be quickly mentioned in point form. First on the list is the Glastonbury details of the wattle chapel dedicated to Our Lady and of Joseph of Arimathea’s (Our Lady’s uncle) burying place, secondly England was the place where the Christian Emperor Constantine was first acclaimed Augustus, thirdly the details regarding the devotion of King Arthur or Arturus to Our Lady, later followed King Alfred the Great’s victory at Ethandune by way of Our Lady’s intercession and lastly, William the Conqueror’s Norman crusade to England bearing a Papal banner of Our Lady given to him by the Roman Pontiff himself, however more must be added to these events. During William the Conqueror’s time there exists a story relating to the Immaculate Conception which is described in Chapter 19. There also exists the obvious element of St George as being Our Lady’s Knight battling the Dragon/Devil, (representing England battling the might of ancient Rome) however, the influence of the French Kings’ devotions to Our Lady and this influence on England should also be taken into consideration. Christine Waters argues that the devotion of Our Lady of the Pew was greatly established and venerated by both the Royal Family and the English populace by the year 1380.


Interestingly the word ‘Pew’ is associated with the French word ‘Puissant’ or ‘Powerful’ and also associated with the French Shrine of Our Lady of Le Puy in Auvergne. This title also means ‘Virgin of Strong Support’ or ‘Virgo Potens.’


Therefore, by 1380 Our Lady’s power at protecting and delivering the English Nation was evident by the devotion to Our Lady of the Pew at Westminster: “…the ancient seat of government and authority.” However, the public dedication of England to Our Lady occurred in 1381 when after Mass and praying before the statue of Our Lady of the Pew, King Richard II successfully quelled a rebel army referred to as the Peasant’s Revolt. He carried St George’s banner and following his victory as a votive offering, placed this banner at the feet of the statue at Westminster. He publically placed his Kingdom under Our Lady’s protection. These victories and events should be seriously taken into consideration by the frequenters of 60 Great Queen Street London, as Our Lady is the true protector of England unlike her nemesis the Dragon/Devil, the Grand Architect of the Universe. But alas, the battle between the followers of Our Lady and of her enemy raged and during the Masonically enlightened years of the French Revolution a painting which was commissioned by King Richard II, of himself and his Queen presenting England to Our Lady which bore the inscription “Dos tua Virgo pia haec est” or “This is your dowry, pious Virgin” was destroyed at the English College in Rome in the year 1798.


On February 10, 1399, the Archbishop of Canterbury issued a mandate which fulfilled the wish of King Richard II to place the Kingdom under her protection. The mandate read as follows, “The contemplation of the great mystery of the Incarnation has brought all Christian nations to venerate her from whom came the beginnings of redemption. But we, as the humble servents of her inheritance, and liegemen of her especial dower (as we are approved by common parlance) ought to excel all others in the favour of our praises and devotion to her.”(5) Evidently this was an early form of consecration of England to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

 The most amazing details regarding these events are the facts that Our Lady chose England during William the Conqueror’s times to strengthen the devotion to her Immaculate Conception in the west and even more striking the fact that the date given above regarding the ‘consecration’ of England to Our Lady (February 10) is the eve of the Catholic Feast-day dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes, where in our modern times Our Lady publically declared herself as being the Immaculate Conception!

In ‘Ipotesi su Maria’ the eminent journalist and Catholic writer Mr. Vittorio Messori, on pages 160-167, goes further in explaining the connection of Lourdes with France and European protection and other..
Mr Messori first explains how the clothing of Our Lady, that is a white dress or habit bith blue and silver colours represent ancient Judaic clothing, he interprets this as to indicate that Our Lady desires to reveal that she is a daughter of Zion (interestingly Pope Benedict dedicates a book on Our Lady as being the Daughter of Zion) this however does not make her a Zionist for the Talmud describes her as being a harlot – the blasphemy of blasphemies!
Anyway, Mr Vittorio Messori describes how the entire French region of ancient Bigorre was by virtue of the conversion of Mirat to Lorus in 732 consecrated to Our Lady. An ancient tradition of carrying a spear/javelin with grass tied to it, maybe signifying the fact that Our Lady of Le Puy had released Mirat from his Islamic oath, was still carried out till the twentieth century. Following Lorus in his steps, the French King performed this tradition and pilgrimage which the converted Muslim had begun. The French King gave the land to Our Lady of Le Puy whom the French Kings now referred to as the Countess of the region of Bigorre. The tradition was kept for many centuries since 732 AD.
Following the work of the secret fraternal societies dedicated to Lucifer, the French Revolution occured and the rights of the land or region of Bigorre were to be handed from the French Crown to the Republic in 1859. However, Our Lady appeared in 1858 at Lourdes reclaiming the land for herself.
The following reasoned deductions can be thus made:-
1) The origins of the manifestation of Our Lady of the Puy’s power protecting France and England began in the above mentioned manner and the devotion to Our Lady of Le Puy in France and England was a natural reaction to her maternal protection.
2) It is a story of Muslim conversion and the protection of Christianity from aggressive Islam and the secret fraternal societies. This though is obvious especially when considering the direct influence of the Masonic authorities at resisting and harassing Bernardette. Therefore, Lourdes symbolises a conversion of heretics.
3) Lourdes symbolises the protection of all Europe and the European Union.
4) Lourdes – the healing waters represent the healing of the body and soul and the Christening waters of the Jordan River. The Baptisimal place for humanity, for all mankind.
5) Lourdes and Fatima have similar meanings.
6) The grafting back of Judaism in the ‘Church of Christ’ – Romans 11.
7) Due to point number 2 and 6 the condemnation of a possible Judaic Imposter Messiah.
The Immaculate Conception – that is – the fact that Our Lady was kept from Original Sin – that first sin offered by the serpent, which promises the Knowledge of good and evil, which promises a transformation into gods, a separation from God – was OPPOSED publically by Our Lady at Lourdes “I am the Immaculate Conception” – we must reject all gods but the God of Christianity.
Lourdes is the modern day spiritual representation of the Jordan River – the Baptisimal waters where Saint John the Baptist symbolically baptised the Son of God and God Himself, Jesus Christ.
