This past month during the Month of Our Lord and just days after requesting a change in the wording of the Lord's prayer, the Supreme Pontiff of the Universal (Catholic) Church issued another dark warning to Catholics about the devil.
Speaking to Catholic broadcaster TV2000 in December 2017, Francis said that "Satan is not a metaphor or a nebulous concept but a real person armed with dark powers."
Historically for the Brotherhood, Friday October 13, 1307 is a day forever made infamous for the burning at the stake of several Knights Templar who were arrested by the King of France upon the orders of the Pontifex Maximus (Pope). (more…)

One of the reasons why I report on a Gnostic website about Catholic news and the Pope is because I grew up Catholic. Another important reason is to document the ancient history and Age old battle between the Catholics and the most famous heretics in the history of the world known simply as the "Gnostics."
The Vatican announced a new path to Sainthood for Christians called an oblatio vitae or a "free offering of one's life", which involves people who freely accept an imminent death for the good of others.
This news got my attention due to the fact that I have been saying that we are in a modern-day plague and Candidates for beatification under the new pathway could include Christians who tended to sick people with the plague who later died because of the disease, said the Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official journal.

The Vatican has officially seized power from the Order of Malta. An action that amounts to one sovereign country annexing another. This news comes shortly after the head of the Order, Fra’ Matthew Festing met with Pope Francis and resigned from the Order. Now the Vatican has ceased complete power of the order ending 900 years of sovereignty in what is being called "a brutal power-grab by the Vatican."
The disorder in Malta had started in December when the Vatican demanded that the Knights of Malta dismiss Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager as grand chancellor (the order’s third-ranking official) for distributing thousands of condoms and oral contraceptives through the order’s humanitarian agency, Malteser International.

Here is an excerpt from an interesting article by Crux Now which states that Pope Francis believes that the greatest threat to the contemporary age is Gnosticism. Francis says that Gnosticism can be found in clericalism, legalism and fundamentalism. It is especially strong among the keepers of knowledge, the doctors of the law, who are more inclined to trust in the power of the world. (more…)
Are we in the days of the Last Judgement? The signs and symbols of the End of an Age are everywhere and this story of the infamous Roman sixth-century church known as the Sistine Chapel reopening to the public after 30 years of restoration seems to align with the last days of the Apocalypse (unveiling).
The Sistine Chapel was covered in 847 during an earthquake and it was only exposed in 1900. The Chapel's frescoes of saints and martyrs, queens, popes and emperors have now been restored at a cost of about $2.1 funded by the Italian state and the World Monuments Fund. (more…)
(Source: UK Telegraph) - Icelanders will soon be able to publicly worship at a shrine to Thor, Odin and Frigg with construction starting this month on the island's first major temple to the Norse gods since the Viking age.
Worship of the gods in Scandinavia gave way to Christianity around 1,000 years ago but a modern version of Norse paganism has been gaining popularity in Iceland.
"I don't believe anyone believes in a one-eyed man who is riding about on a horse with eight feet," said Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, high priest of 'Asatruarfelagid', an association that promotes faith in the Norse gods.
"We see the stories as poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology."
Membership in Asatruarfelagid has tripled in Iceland in the last decade to 2,400 members last year, out of a total population of 330,000, data from Statistics Iceland showed.
