Sunday Respite: In memory of the Knight Templars terrible October


In 2007 the Vatican issued a proclamation declaring the Templars innocent of their alleged crimes. This after finding “misplaced” documents of their trials. How different our world would be if this act had not been perpetrated against the Templars, the defenders of Christ. It is worthy of us to to honor them each October. May they rise again.

Come, my brethren! Take courage and stand beneath our banner! The darkness closes in, and we are the only true defenders of the Light! March to victory and arise triumphant!

On Friday, October 13th, 1307, King Philip IV of France, in league with Pope Clement V ordered  all Templars to be rounded up and thrown in prison. The Knights were accused of numerous crimes including heresy and treason. For two hundred years the Knights Templar had been the most dominant force in Christendom.

Philip IV borrowed enormous sums of money to finance a war with England. A poor king and an even worse military commander, Philip was easily defeated. He saw a way of eliminating his huge debt. On that fateful day of Friday, October 13, 1307 he ordered all Templars arrested and their property seized. The Grandmaster of the order, Jacques DeMolay was thrown in prison along with several other high-ranking members of the order.

Their ‘trial’ was a farce. The Templars were charged with heresy, worshiping false idols and other crimes against the church. Many of them were tortured until they ‘confessed’ to their crimes. Refusing to capitulate, Jacques DeMolay would not confess and Philip ordered him burned at the stak

    Makes one wonder if the current pope had his fingers in the pie in 2007?

    This on of the major reasons that I f**king love history! History shows us where we came from, where we are headed, and what will become of us if we don’t pay attention. So many times, people and institutions have used the name of “God” to pursue their own agendas; nothing could be further from an all-loving, all-accepting, omniscient Creator. Thank you!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I too am a History buff. There is no need to repeat History but yet we for some reason are compelled to do so. We apparently are unable to learn God’s lessons.

    The tradition is to Genuflect and make the sign of the cross, not to bless yourself, but for the fifty Righteous men put to death, as the Pope in France declared himself God’s emissary on earth and wanted to prove that nothing would happen to him as it was the Will of God (Pope was dead the next year). Plain and simple, that is the tradition of Friday the 13th; Pause a moment for the repose of souls of the Righteous, wrongfully put to death. The “bad luck” stuff, came from those desiring to steal the wealth of the Templars. All of Freemasonry, gives, collectively, to their Craft Lodge for charitable purposes and the donors remain unseen and unknown, as a way of humbly helping the less fortunate. Of course, I am not a Freemason nor Templar.

        Templars are York Rite, not Scotish Rite.

    Today’s brainiacs in charge of the western world float their inept financial management through direct taxation while leaving the torture to their surrogates such as Al-Quada, Taliban and Isis.
    Seriously though, those familiar with the history of the Templars know that treachery and deceit of those. In power never go out of style and in some way, shape or form history will always repeat itself.

      Sadly it is so true and we apparently feel compelled to repeat it indeed.
