Relics, Knights and Constellations

* THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM – an in depth study on CONSTELLATIONS and STARS as mentioned in the holy texts of the Bible  –

The trigger for writing this post was initiated by a documentary/show on RAI 2 – the Italian TV channel. The program was a well prepared visual dossier dealing with the topic of the Knight Templars, highlighting their association with Medieval Jerusalem and the recent earthquake-wrecked town of Aquila, Italy’Aquila .

The documentary presenter explained how L’Aquila’s geographical topography is similar to that of Jeruslem City, the Italian town’s construction was adjusted as to mimic Jerusalem’s landmarks. A detailed life-history of Pope Celestine V was examined and interesting points emerged such as the fact that the once secluded Benedictine hermit

( ) known as Pietro da Morrone (a Saint of the RCC) travelled all the way to Spain for the specific mission of saving his order from some impending doom. Pietro da Morrone was interrupted on his way back by a peculiar fellow, a member of the Knights Templar.

For a better understand on who the Knigthts Templar were (at least as regards to their original mission) please visit:-

The RAI 2 presenter went on –  the Templar convinced the future Pope Celestine V to sojourn with the Order for a month or two, the hermit accepted. Understandably, the mission of the Templars was explained well to the hermit who quickly grasped the significance of the original charge of this Order. During their 200 year stay in Outremer the Templars (maybe alongside the Hospitallier Order and the Teutonic Order) were busy digging around the ruins of the former second temple of Jerusalem in the hope of discovering artifacts belonging to Solomon’s Temple, which was the first. It is very hard to understand what, if any, finds these military orders found at Solomon’s Temple site. This House of God was first destroyed by the Babylonians and later (when rebuilt) the second Temple was gutted by Titus, the Roman Caesar. To note though that many relics were indeed saved from this region by St Helen in 300 – 400 AD.

Solomon’s Temple – the first Temple of Adonai ever built, the blue-print of future Cathedrals. This Temple had two pillars at the entrance which were named Boaz and Joachim, the ancestors of King David. The image of two pillars joined with a rainbow occurs time and again in the bible. This symbol was later adopted by Christianity and Freemasonry alike. The Old Testament describes clearly how the House of God was filled with cloud during certain Jewish feast days. This cloud was not incense but is understood as being God Himself who dwelled within.

* Interestingly, the destruction of the second Temple was completed by Titus in 70 AD, exactly on September 8 – feast commemorating Our Lady’s Nativity (the birth of the living Ark and mother of God). A structure which was not destroyed and was left standing in Jerusalem was a Christian site later referred to as the Church of St Mary of Zion -

The alleged relics recovered by the Templars are the following:-

The Holy Grail – cup of Jesus Christ’s last supper – this is very unlikely as the original one (or part) is found in Valencia, Spain and was taken there during St Lawrence’s days. This myth also initiated the absurd, ludicrous and blasphemous tale concocted by the creators of revolution, the Freemasons themselves, that whoever drinks from this cup is awarded eternal life on Earth. This was an absurd idea also investigated by Hitler’s paranormal police, who amongst other things held dear the spear of Destiny, thought to be the spear of Longinus which pierced Christ’s heart upon the Cross.

Spear of Destiny as confiscated from the Vienna Museum by a section of the Hitler’s SS based at the Wewelsburg Schloss in Westphalia. However, this is thought to be the spear of St Maurice which might have been Longinus spear but was found to be a Roman standard tip and is not part of the Longinus spear in Rome.

Saint Longinus, St Peter’s Basilica, Rome, Italy.

Longinus Spear is encased within one of the columns surrounding the altar at St Peter’s Basilica and whoever watched “Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark” would view in popular culture strange absurd ideas similar to Templar and Nazi paranormal ideology. The Freemasons also concocted the idea that another secret society – the Rosicrucians – are the descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalen – just another blasphemy!

Indiana Jones’ Last Supper Cup

Holy Grail of Valencia, Spain – saved by St Lawrence and his Spanish assistant.

The Ark of the Covenant – (the first or the second) – one of which was hidden by the Jews previous to the Babylonian invasion – from the point of view of the religious, this artifact doesn’t matter that much, but from an archaeological perspective (and historical) it would be great to find one. If we were to read Revelation and understand the original meaning regarding the Ark of the Covenant (which contained Aaron’s Staff, Manna, and the tablets of the Laws of Moses) we would conclude that this ‘box’ represents the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ who carried Him for 9 months. The manna, the priestly staff and the law are in fact representations of Jesus Christ Himself, we could start to appreciate the fact that this object, aka this box, is worthless. The incredible power of antiquity, victory in war and death to whoever touches it, belongs to the Blessed Virgin and her Son Jesus Christ, to God Himself.

The Holy Eucharist – Jesus Christ – the manna from Heaven which gives eternal life.

Dear Jews it is just a gilded box. I’ll however give you something worthwhile to contemplate about. As in modern times the Jewish race has intermingled with the many other people’s around the world,  do you not also think about the fact that many original Jews who  (before the great mix) converted to Christianity in the first century or two AD, are still the original forefathers of many Christians living in Christian Nations (or what is left of once Christian Nations)? Yes indeed many people who do not live in Israel today are in fact descendents of Jews. This would also include descendent’s living in Islamic North Africa and many Americans and Australians.

Anyway, the Templars were aided by Pope Celestine V who abdicated from his throne and when he died was buried at the Basilica di Collemagio in Aquila – here the RAI presenter nudges at the interrogative questions whether the basilica itself was built with Templar treasure found beneath Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. The Italian presenter also queries whether King Solomon’s relics are somehow hidden in this Italian basilica i.e. Solomon’s bones beneath Pope Celestine’s tomb ?

Well King David’s remains are known of being buried in Israel apparently in Bethlehem. The topic of relics is indeed very old. St. Catherine Emmerich described how Patriarch Joseph carried relics of Adam, the first man, tied around his belt. She also wrote that Adam’s skull was in a cave at Golgotha just beneath Jesus Christ’s Cross. Relics contain a holy power aka the Holy Spirit.

Golgotha – the place of the skull (Adam’s skull)

When speaking about power we are always understanding that it is God Himself, the One who the Templars would later reject for Satan. So the Templars became architects, adventurers, engineers and together with the masons, who would later become the Freemasons, built beautiful Cathedrals. What happened ? How did the fall occur ? It simply did. The Templars discovered the US circa 100 years before Colombus, however they weren’t the first. Earlier still there was Eric the Red, the Viking (and other North men) and surprise of surprises the Libyans had discovered the US (North American Indian DNA is similar to Libyan), the Greeks from Thera (Santorini) also colonised North America.

The RAI presenter went on – At Oak Island (Canada) the Templars dug a well, which allegedly holds Templar treasure retrieved from Solomon’s Temple, and in Iceland the Templars hid some more of it. LOL… The alleged treasure belonging to King Solomon, (which one could see how popular culture expounds – watch the movie National Treasure starring Nicholas Cage and read Dan Brown’s books) could have originated from a myth involving King Solomon’s mines. His father King David had copper mines found to the South of Israel, maybe Solomon had a gold mine ? who knows whether this idea is just as myth as El Dorado the City of Gold or the alleged modern day idea that gold bullion is found at Fort Knox – just kidding!!

King David wrote about God’s Loving Kindness and Mercy, best explained today by Sister Faustina’s Divine Mercy, while King Solomon (when still in his right senses) prayed to be capable to distinguish between good and evil, which God granted together with wisdom. This wisdom wasn’t the wisdom belonging to this world, not a wisdom of money and profit. I can see that the Jews association with money could have started with this distorted idea that being wise means being financially crafty. As King Solomon ceased to distinguish between good and evil  (marrying heathen wives, and ‘walking’ with their gods) he must have become quite a mess. Surely the Templars followed in his same footsteps both in his glory and his fall!!

Now a word regarding constellations.


The Templars who were originally dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, built great Cathedrals in France, such as the Chartres Cathedral which holds her holy veil  –

The history of the Holy-Veil at Chartres –

The apparent cluster of Northern French Cathedrals form the Blessed Virgin’s celestial constellation (Virgo) – albeit the fact that her North Star, Polaris lies in Ursa Minor.

Virgo, Ursa Minor, Polaris, Vega, Orion, Sirius, Thuban and Draco.

The constellation of Virgo and the representation of Virgo in French Cathedral locations.

However, the RAI presenter explained that when the Cathedral in Chartres is joined with the Giza pyramids in a geographical straight line, apparently some Templar castle in Italy appears sitting snugly on this line.

The Giza pyramids built to mimic the celestial belt of Orion. The Nile was the representation of the Milky Way on Earth, while Isis and Osiris, could be born to eternal life from their King and Queen’s chambers and follow the shaft into the heavens and maybe become stars to shine forever. The shafts point towards Thuban in Draco, Orion’s belt and Sirius. The esotericists insist that many secrets and sacred geometry make up this place where initiates can achieve eternal life and astral projection. Little do they know that Jesus Christ promised his faithful followers that on the Resurrection they will shine like stars and receive true eternal life.

This Italian castle has an astronomical connection with Sirius – the dog-star of Canis Major.

Sirius in Canis Major – in relation with Orion’s belt

Sirius through the night sky – Egyptian tomb – and Osiris the night hare

The architecture of this Italian castle resembles greatly the labyrinth designs left by the Templar/Masons in the floors of the French Cathedrals which offer the initiates a rebirth of some sort. These designs represented the human gestation period and as Chartres was previously a pagan site called the ‘womb of the Earth’ these designs offered some form of initiation – what exactly this initiation was, if pagan or Christian, is uncertain !! Definitely however it shows that the Templars had a contradicting idea of female deity vs Blessed Virgin, esoteric eternal life vs. Christian eternal life and a complicated idea of the spiritual struggle between the forces of Adonai and Lucifer.

Castel del Monte

Chartres’ Labyrinth

Reims’ Labyrinth

The esoteric idea seems to reveal the initiate’s progress upwards along the supposed spiritual growth indicated by the stage of initiation starting from a triangular labyrinth, then square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon until the spherical labyrinth in Chartres is reached.

This is esoteric theory which is further exposed by the direct link with the Giza Pyramids and the Castel del Monte which was surely used for ritual initiations into the esoteric mysteries of Lucifer.

In our modern age the New Age movement teaches similar knowledge referred to as sacred geometry, egg, fruit, and tree of life which is non other than the same Egyptian idea of resurrection through magical rituals and astral projection – a far cry from the true Resurrection offered by Jesus Christ the God-Man.

Ursa Minor with the North Star Polaris

The Giza pyramids were constructed as to represent the three stars of the belt of Orion and as the star Sirius is considered by Freemasons as being the dog-star representing the devil or Lucifer, why would Chartres be aligned with both the Blessed Virgin’ celestial symbol (Virgo) and the dog-star Sirius together with the belt of Orion? The Templars seemed to embody a mixture of contradicting topics, these matters represent on Earth (or in architecture) Revelation’s battle between the Virgin’s offspring and the dragon/devil.

Gizah Pyramids

I have earlier written the following in one of my posts:-

“Our Lady was the anti-thesis of both Lucifer’s vanity and the selfish act of our first parents. Vanity, pride, disobedience all were vanquished. It is clear now that ‘Tota Pulchra’ or the ‘all beautiful Virgin’ ignored her beauty (unlike Lucifer) and sealed her love for God which is beauty itself. The Dragon was represented by certain heavenly bodies which symbolised Lucifer’s perfection and status in Creation, Our Lady has eclipsed Lucifer, for as he was represented in Creation by both the Morning Star (Isaiah 14:12) and the North Star (Thuban in the constellation of Draco – in Egyptian times and Sirius – the dog-star today), her beauty surpassed his baneful fall and she became ever more fair. She now is represented by Polaris, the new North Star in Ursa Minor (Our Lady Star of the Sea) and Venus the Morning Star (Litany of Loreto). She has stripped him of his beauty, the perfect cherubim, who was so to speak ‘defrocked’ of his honour before Creation. The Immaculate Conception became ‘Queen of angels and mankind.’ All Hail Star of the Sea, Tota Pulchra!”

The fascinating fact about the North Star is that a north star is not permanently set in that position i.e. the star closest to the North Pole (not the brightest). The North Star changes with changing epochs due to precession. Above we can see how both Vega and later Thuban in Draco (North Star in Egyptian times) Polaris in Ursa Minor (today) and Gamma in Cepheus (THE KING) shall be the next North Star. In 23,000 years Draco will again be the North Star.


Fleming suggests that this struggle is also depicted in the stars. At the North Pole the three constellations, the constellation of Ursa Minor (having Stella Maris, the North Star or Polaris), the constellation of Ursa Major and the third constellation of Draco. Mary being associated with Stella Maris is the central axis as the heavens revolves around her, while she constantly crushes the ‘Dragon’ beneath her heel. The renowned explorer Christopher Columbus, was especially aware of this stellar representation, and adopted a particular signature to mirror the central position of Polaris in the northern sky. Columbus and his crew commended themselves to Our Lady Star of the Sea. Fernando Columbus, the navigator’s son, wrote regarding his father, that the name ‘Christopher Columbus’ was particularly fitting. For it represents both ‘Christopher’ the military saint renowned for having carried the Christ Child across a river and the symbol of ‘the dove’ by way of the surname ‘Columbus.’ Christopher, “…carried the grace of the Holy Spirit to the New World.” Fernando also recalled the figure of the dove, as it left Noah’s ark bearing the olive branch, so was his father bearing the oil of baptism to the American Indios.

POLARIS – The North Star

Cepheus – THE KING – Gamma – the next North Star

The Woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet.

For a proper understanding of the biblical quote “a woman appeared clothed with the sun and the moon was under her feet” (Revelation) please see :-

Morning Star – Venus

The Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe appears upon a moon similarly as in Fatima where she appeared after an unexpected thunderbolt clothed with the sun and with child.

At Fatima Our Lady appeared after an unexpected thunderbolt and lightning startled the children. Shining in a white garment and Rosary in hand, the young lady pleaded with the children to visit the Cova da Iria on the 13th day of the month, from May to October, six consecutive months. After instructing them in the Rosary, Our Lady revealed to them a vision of hell, where unrepentant sinners go.

The ‘Shulamite Woman’ in the Old Testament Book, Song of Songs 6:10, is indeed the ‘Woman’ of Revelation 12.

“Who is she that comes forth as the morning rising,

fair as the moon,

bright as the sun,

as terrible as an army set in full battle array?”

“The world in 1830 was experiencing its first industrial revolution and Charles Darwin was perfecting his theory on the evolution of species through natural selection. In the attempt to deny the existence of the Christian God, the theory was later misused by the worshippers of the ‘god of reason.’ In 1830, in a convent of the Sisters of Charity in Paris, France, twenty-four-year-old novice Catherine Laboure was awakened in the middle of the night, by a five year old child, who invited her to the chapel, for the Blessed Virgin was waiting. As Catherine descended towards the chapel the candles were lit. At midnight she heard the rustle of silk and gazed upwards to behold an apparition of Our Lady in a blaze of white light. The Blessed Mother warned Catherine on the future, she said: “The times are very evil. Sorrows will befall France; the throne will be overturned. The whole world will be plunged into every kind of misery.”(2) A second apparition of Our Lady occurred, the Blessed Virgin was holding an orb topped with a golden cross, she stood upon a white globe and crushed beneath her feet a green serpent with yellow spots. Surrounding the Virgin was an oval frame with the words: ‘O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.’ Our Lady desired that this image would be struck into a medal and on the other side, a large letter ‘M’ surmounted by a cross with two hearts below, one crowned with thorns, the other pierced by a sword. The medal is to be worn around the neck, worn with confidence, Our Lady pledged that whoever wears the medal will receive great and abundant graces.”

“Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm. Ch 12 – A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clohed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns of his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the Earth.The dragon stood infront of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”


In the Old Testament Isaiah describes Lucifer as being the morning star who dared challenge God, while the New Testament indicates that Jesus Christ is the morning star. Well Jesus Christ is not the devil, therefore, the morning star is a representation of the glory of creation i.e. the brightest creature. For the first few moments the brightest creature was Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12), at the creation of the Blesed Virgin (following Lucifer’s fall) it was she (Litany of Loreto). Later when Jesus Christ came into the world, the brightest was and still is Him, the God-Man (Revelation 22:16).

How did you come to fall from the heavens, Daystar, (morning star) son of Dawn? How did you come to be thrown to the ground, conqueror of nations?” (Isaiah 14:12)

So we have confirmation of the words of the prophets; and you will be right to pay attention to it as to a lamp for lighting a way through the dark, until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.” (2 Peter 1:19)

The versicle and prayer after the litany may be varied by season. Thus, during Advent (from the fourth Sunday before Christmas to Christmas Eve):

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Let us pray. O God, who hast willed that by the message of an Angel, thy Word should receive flesh from the womb of the Virgin Mary: grant unto thy suppliants, that we who believe that she is truly the Mother of God, may be assisted by her intercession before Thee. Through the same Christ our Lord. R. Amen.


“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” (Revelation 22:16)

The Star of Bethlehem

For a proper understanding of the original Star of Bethlehem as studied by ancient Babylonians, as appeared in Bethlehem and the meaning of the conjunction between Saturn, Jupiter in Pisces, please read on:-

A Time of Waiting Unique in World History (VII)

The astrologers’ expectancy

It now seems to be established scientifically that the astrologers from Babylon were also awaiting the birth of the “ruler of the world” from the year 7 B.C. Kepler, one of the fathers of modern astronomy, observed in December 1603 the very bright alignment of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces. With his calculations, he was able to establish that the same phenomenon (which produces an intense and dazzling light in the star-filled heavens) also must have occurred in the year 7 B.C. Then he discovered that an ancient commentary on the Scriptures by the Rabbi Abarbanel recalled that, according to Jewish belief, the Messiah was due to appear precisely at the time when the light from Jupiter and Saturn shone as a single beam in the constellation of Pisces.

Yet hardly any significance was attached to Kepler’s discovery simply because it had not been established with certainty that Jesus had been born before the traditional date, following a mistake by Denys Petau. More than two centuries later, the Danish scholar Munter was to discover and decipher a mediaeval Hebraic commentary on the “seventy seven-day periods” in the Book of Daniel which alluded to the belief referred to by Kepler. In 1902, the Planetary Table was published that is today preserved in Berlin: an Egyptian papyrus that contains the exact movements of the planets between 17 B.C. and 10 A.D. This draws attention to the alignment between Jupiter and Saturn in 7 B.C., visible in its entire splendor across the Mediterranean region.

Lastly, in 1925, a description of Sippar’s Stellar Calendar was published: a baked earth tablet with cuneiform inscriptions from the ancient settlement of Sippar, on the Euphrates, which was the center of an important school of astrology in Babylon. Remarkably, on this “calendar” are marked all of the heavenly movements and alignments of the year 7 B.C. Why was this? Because, according to the Babylonian astrologers, this alignment that can only be observed every 794 years occurred three times in 7 B.C. ? on May 29, October 1 and December 5. And they considered Jupiter to be the planet of the world’s rulers, Saturn as the planet of those who protect Israel and the constellation of Pisces as the sign of the end of time, that is, the beginning of the Messianic era. (…)

Indeed, it is now certain, that between the Tigris and the Euphrates, not only was a Messiah expected that would emerge from Israel, but that amazingly he would be born in an age and at a time that had been predetermined.
