EXCERPTS

The following excerpts were all written or translated after my return from Switzerland... with my jeans and running shoes in 2004. I included the original french versions for better clarity. These excerpts are essential to fully understand Discover Cosmic (Part 1 / Book 1 / Book 2 / Part 2).

Illuminés / Templiers

et

Franc-Maçons / Illuminatis

 

(volets 1 et 2)
Auteur: Sylvain Bériault

 

(Premier Volet)

S'il existe un sujet dénaturé par l'histoire, ancienne et contemporaine; un thème devenu un charabia incompréhensible dû à la propagande, la désinformation, le sensationalisme, la cinématographie populaire et j'en passe... C'est bien celui de l'Église Catholique juxtaposé à l'apparition de sociétés secrètes en tous genres, ayant côtoyé cette dernière pour divers motifs. Et ayant carrément servi à infiltrer, dans certains cas, les Ordres du Saint-Siège. La mythologie populaire d'aujourd'hui rend la compréhension de l'histoire encore plus ardue; étant donné que la littérature à sensation, le cinéma et I'internet compulsent un fouillis notoire de notions contradictoires.
Ainsi on en arrive à penser et à croire que les Templiers sont des Franc-Maçons ou vice-versa et que Illuminé ou Enluminures, qui sont des formes anciennes de termes Ecclésiastiques, puissent mystérieusement être le synonyme contemporain d'Illuminati !!! Encore faut-il savoir que les Illuminati (Lucifer- initialement un Ange de Lumière qui s'appropria ensuite les Ténèbres) n'ont rien de Chrétiens et sont en fait des ennemis acharnés de toute forme ou expression de Chrétienté: ils puisent pour leur part leurs rites païens et leurs titres parmi les divinités anciennes: Thor - Baal - Odin - Gog - Magog - Boaz ...

Alors que les Templiers ont été les créateurs, les enseignants et les défenseurs de la démocratie occidentale:
- Les Ordres Templiers du Saint-Siège étaient structurés selon les Nations, les Langues et les Cultures. Chacun ayant ses propres blasons et couleurs et respectant ses coutumes d'origine.
- Les Franc-Maçons représentent un groupe bien distinct dans l'histoire n'ayant aucun lien avec le Saint-Siège directement ou avec les Templiers. Car ils sont les tailleurs de pierre, les architectes et les bâtisseurs de temples, de châteaux et d'églises... Leur confrérie impose la loi du silence à tous ses membres sous peine de mort.
Cela s'explique bien entendu en fonction des revenus phénoménaux qu'ils tirent de leurs compétences... Qui se sont multipliées, il va de soi, au cours des siècles!!!
- Les Illuminatis eux, ont commencé à exister, si l'on peut dire, à une époque bien précise de l'histoire... D'abord grâce au concours de Monarchies puissantes, en France et au Portugal notamment, qui décimèrent plusieurs Ordres Templiers (craignant leur pouvoir, mais en s'appropriant surtout leurs possessions). Certains se sont réfugiés en Écosse et ailleurs joignant ainsi les rangs de Franc-Maçonneries et reniant leurs ordres (Loi du Silence). Plus tard ce fut un Ordre Templier entier, dissident du Saint-Siège, qui s'allia aux Luthériens et aux Calvinistes pour donner naissance au mouvement Protestant. Celui-ci aura vite fait  de renier toute forme de démocratie pour instituer l'Autarcie dans toutes ses entreprises subséquentes au cours de l'histoire. Et en instituant des massacres pires que toute l'Inquisition réunie!!!
C'était initialement: les Frères de l'Ordre Hospitalier de Sainte-Marie des Allemands. Un Ordre semblable aux Croisés, mais charitable au départ parce que non-aligné au Saint-Siège. Il devint un Ordre Militaire par la suite et combattit aux côtés des Chevaliers Fançais et Italiens. Mais l'Ordre convoite les terres de l'est et on devine déjà l'avènement du Grand Ordre Teutonique lors de la conquête de la Prusse en l'an 1309 sous le Grand Maître Siegfried Von Feuchtwagen. Le Grand Schisme de 1525 verra Albert de Saxe s'allier et soutenir la réforme de Luther ainsi que les révoltes contre Rome, en instituant des massacres démentiels. Le Grand Maître trahit son Ordre et s'enrichit en s'appropriant toutes ses possessions et établit sa capitale à Kõnigsberg. L'ordre des Chevaliers de Sainte-Marie des Allemands a toutefois survécu à la trahison du Grand Maître.

Commençons par le début et le premier Ordre Templier du Saint-Siège
(Pape Calixte II)

15 juillet 1099: Jérusalem est prise par Godefroy de Bouillon qui chasse les Musulmans.
- l'Ordre du Saint-Sépulcre de Jérusalem constitue la première garde chrétienne en Orient. Ce sont des Chanoines Réguliers de Saint-Augustin. Lors de la bataille de Ramlah (8 septembre 1101) ils ont presque tous été exterminés. Certains survivants (1117-1118) se rallient toutefois à Beaudoin II qui les héberge, en retour d'une protection pour les pélerins, dans le Palais de Massjid Al Aqsâ (près du Palais de l'ancien Roi d'Israël, Salomon). D'autres rejoindront l'Espagne. C'est Louis VII qui les établira définitivement en France à l'Abbaye d'Orléans. En l'an 1202, le Roi Henri II (Plantagenet) d'Angleterre les prend sous son aile et ils contribuent à la création de plus de deux mille maisons dont celles d'Annecy - de Miechow - de Savoie - et de Hollande. On reconnait le rôle important tenu par l'Angleterre auprès des Ordres Catholiques jusqu'à l'avènement du Roi Henry VIII, de la Reine Elizabeth 1 et enfin de Cromwell... Qui perpétrèrent rien de moins qu'un véritable génocide à leur égard en Irlande et en Écosse. Ce fut l'authentique Inquisition Protestante malgré le fait qu'elle n'a jamais été désignée sous cette appellation...

 

Pourquoi Saint-Augustin ?   

Les Templiers pratiquaient une démocratie et l'enseignaient. C'est d'ailleurs les Moines Monastiques des Abbayes Catholiques partout en Europe qui préservaient la structure démocratique des institutions. Ce sont les Ordres Templiers qui ont préservé, à partir du deuxième millénaire, l'existence de l'Occident sur ses terres ancestrales. Défense assumée au préalable par les diverses alliances de tribus, de communautés, et d'ethnies rassemblées et unies avec Dieu face aux invasions barbares (Goths, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandales, Germaniques de l'Est/Francs de l'Est, les Première et Deuxième Rome, Lombards, l'Empire Byzantin, Bourguignons, etc). Il faut savoir que l'Église n'a que défendu ses multiples frontières tout au cours de l'histoire face à des envahisseurs aux visées expansionistes. Mettant en valeur les principes mêmes de la Démocratie enseignée par le Catholicisme et ce depuis Saint-Augustin. C'est très important de comprendre la pensée et l'influence de Saint-Augustin à ces deux grandes étapes du Catholicisme (IV ème au XIV ème siècles). Car c'est lui qui fit découvrir aux Chrétiens; les valeurs de la démocratie telle que définie par les philosophes Grecs. Dès le Premier Millénaire, les Ordres Monastiques les plus influents se rallient à Saint-Augustin. Saint-Augustin était un Rhétoricien né en Tunisie sous l'Empire Romain au IV ème siècle. En rédigeant son principal ouvrage: Confessions - Il a non seulement fait preuve de génie, mais également inventé l'Autobiographie !!!

Les Teutoniques, malheureusement, à partir du XIV ème siècle établirent une Autarcie calquée sur l'Empire Allemand. C'est ainsi que le Grand Maître d'un Ordre Templier... se transforma en Grand Chef des Armées !!! (Hitler a tenté de raviver l'Ordre Teutonique en raison de l'absence de Démocratie en son sein et forgea son emblême sur ce modèle: la Croix de Fer. D'ailleurs l'iconographie et la symbolique des Illuminati attache une grande importance à la moquerie de toute représentation Chrétienne).
Par ailleurs il est intéressant de souligner un rôle capital du Saint-Siège dans l'histoire. Alors que nombre d'auteurs littrés ou pas ont tenté et tentent encore d'accuser l'Église Catholique d'avoir toujours été l'ennemi de la connaissance et de la science... La réalité et l'histoire ont tôt fait de démontrer le contraire. La plupart des gens ignorent à quel point l'Église a sû non seulement diffuser, mais également préserver le savoir et les sciences... De Saint-Augustin (Confessions, ans 397-400) qui fait preuve d'une rigueur scientifique dans son raisonnement face à des questions de nature biologique, philosophiques, psychologiques et même d'astrophysique - Au Pape Sylvestre II (né Gerbert, à Aurillac dans le Cantal) - en l'an 1,000 -  qui prouva que la Terre était ronde et qu'elle tournait autour du Soleil !!! Mais oui et en créant lui-même un modèle en trois dimensions composé de trois sphères !!!  Ce n'est que cinq cent ans plus tard que Copernic parvint aux mêmes... conclusions..
Ce sont les Franc-Maçons (très près des Monarchies) qui s'opposaient à la diffusion des connaissances (loi du silence): Pas l'Église.

(Deuxième Volet)
Illuminés - Templiers
et
Franc-Maçons - Illuminatis


À partir du IV ème siècle (Saint-Augustin), les Cathéchumènes européens relèvent d'Abbayes fondamentalement Augustiniennes (Chanoines Réguliers) et d'Églises (Clergés Séculiers) pour simplifier. Et il faut faire la distinction entre ces deux entités dominantes car les Abbayes sont également le berceau des futurs Ordres Templiers devenus à la fois Monastiques et Guerriers au Deuxième Millénaire.

Qui sont ces Catéchumènes? Il s'agit principalement des Celtes - Pictes - Juts - Angls - Gauls (qui donneront naissance aux Germaniques de l'Ouest et aux Francs) - et les Celtes-Ibériques (qui seront presque exterminés plus tard par les Visigoths au Nord et par la suite; les Ummayades au Sud). Des siècles plus tard; les Visigoths, eux-mêmes menacés par l'Empire Musulman grandissant, se rallieront aux Catholiques.
- L'Empire des Ummayades à partir du VII ème siècle s'étend de la Perse à l'ensemble de l'Afrique du Nord, puis à la péninsule Celte-Ibérique dès le début du VIII ème siècle (711). En 732, leur expansion s'achève brusquement à Tours (France). Puis de 740 à 916, incapables de remonter au Nord par les frontières de l'Est en raison de l'Empire Byzantin... Ils s'attaquent au Nord de l'Inde (Gurjurat et Pratihara) qui les repousseront pendant plus de deux siècles.

Toutes ces ethnies et tous leurs territoires, au début du Premier Millénaire (du I er au V ème siècles) furent conquis par l'Empire Romain (première Rome). Toutes les Terres... sauf le Nord de l'Angleterre: on y retrouve les Picts et les Celtes. L'Empereur Hadrien incapable de les vaincre entreprend la construction d'un mur, en 122 , afin de bloquer le commerce dans cette région.... En 142, un deuxième mur est érigé plus au Nord; le Mur d'Antonin cette fois... Le Nord de l'Angleterre jouera donc une part importante dans l'établissement du Christianisme.

 

Le Monastère d'Iona
(colombe en hébreu) une étape importante

Colum-Cill (Saint-Colomban d'Iona 521-597), un exilé Irlandais, établit le Monastère, en 565, sur l'Ïle d'Iona au Nord-Ouest des côtes Écossaises. On assiste à la naissance du christianisme  au pays des Pictes. Ce qui se traduit par la Terre des Chrétiens, Scotland au Nord et Christianisme Celtique en Irlande, au Sud (Celtes Irlandais : Dal Riada).
Brûlé et pillé à deux reprises (802-806) par les Vikings, il est abandonné en 807 au profit du nouveau Monastère de Knells. Ce qui n'empêchera pas le massacre des Moines en 986... Les Vikings s'en sont pris systématiquement aux Monastères et Abbayes à partir de 794.
Initialement l'Écosse s'appelait Calédonie. Les Britons-Celtes du Sthrathclyre (Angles de Germanie) occupaient le Sud-Est. Alors que les Celtes Irlandais (Dal Riada) occupaient l'Ouest. Ils devinrent éventuellement connus en tant que Scots.
En 1203, la reconstruction de l'Abbaye d'Iona affiche clairement son appartenance à l'Église Catholique Romaine et défie ainsi le Christianisme Celte. La Réforme du XVII ème siècle élimina toute trace de Catholicisme; après qu'elle fut anhihilée (1561) par la destruction des bâtiments, sur ordre du Parlement d'Écosse.
- Le XVII ème siècle est intéressant car c'est à cette époque qu'apparait le Billet de Banque et la Première Banque, suite aux réformes en Europe. En effet, jusqu'à la fin du XVI ème siècle, les banques: Banque de Gênes et Banque Rialto de Venise, par exemple, ne font que centraliser les Lettres de Change (notes de Crédit) en perpétuant tout simplement une tradition imputable aux Monarchies et Franc-Maçoneries remontant au Moyen-Âge. C'est-à-dire en honorant rien d'autre que des Billets de Crédit... Le Billet de Banque, lui, a été inventé par les Templiers au XI ème siècle pour protéger les Pélerins en Terre Sainte: le bilet de banque ne sert qu'au transfert de fonds. Le Saint-Siège avait notamment institué un très rigoureux contrôle de ces transactions au moyen de procédés cryptographiques encodés et secrets. Et cette clef cryptographique était reprensentée par la Croix des Huit Béatitudes: symbole de l'Étoile Vénus (étoile à huit branches): L'Emblême des Templiers. Cette Clef fut utilisée à travers plus de 9,000 Comanderies Catholiques au cours de l'histoire.
Le Billet de Banque inventé par les Templiers au XIème siècle va donc révolutioner le monde Bancaire et l'Europe dès le XVIIème siècle !!!

 

Les Chevaliers Teutoniques
Tunique Blanche + Croix Noire du côté gauche

 

Le Premier Ordre Templier: Ordre du Saint-Sépulcre de Jérusalem arborait la Tunique Blanche. Le blanc étant réservé à l'Ordre des Templiers alors que les Chanoines Réguliers (Ordres Monastiques) avaient des tuniques noires. La Croix des Templiers étant toujours rouge (Vénus, la seule planète visible en plein jour, à la lumière donc).
L'Ordre Hospitalier de Sainte-Marie des Allemands fut créé par un couple de marchands de Brême en 1128 et était rattaché à l'hôpital Notre-Dame (les Français et les Italiens, à l'Hôpital Saint-Jean). En 1143, le Pape Célestin II émet une Bulle qui s'adresse à l'ensemble des Hospitaliers vivant en Allemagne. Il y est stipulé que tous les biens acquis ainsi que l'Hôpital Sainte-Marie des Allemands soient placés sous l'obédience du Maître de l'Hôpital de Saint-Jean. Plaçant ainsi tous les Ordres sur un pied d'égalité. Le Pape leur laisse quand même beaucoup d'autonomie ce qui leur permet (1190) de nommer leur propre Maître; en l'occurence, Henry Walbach Maître dans la Ville française d'Âcre de l'Hôpital de Sainte-Marie des Allemands. Grâce aux liens qu'ils tissent en combattant aux côtés des Italiens et des Français; ils se voient confié de nombreuses Comanderies Teutoniques en France. Ils reçoivent des dons de Bourgogne, Hôpital de Montpellier; la Maison Teutonique de Saint-Michel-de-l'Hermitage, etc. En effet, Gauthier (Évêque de Chartres) établissait la propriété de la Chapelle Saint-Michel aux Teutoniques (1226).
Le 12 février 1192, le Pape Célestin III prenait l'Ordre sous sa protection.  Les papes Honorius III puis Grégoire IX codifièrent l'Ordre en 1216. Seul le Pape peut les excommunier... Ce qui représente un privilège extraordinaire au Moyen-Âge. Le Grand Maître, sous Honorius III, adopta la Tunique Blanche identique à celle des Templiers: ce qui les irrita au plus haut point. Pour mettre un terme au conflit, le Pape ordonna que l'Ordre des Teutoniques affiche une Croix Noire du côté gauche, en souvenir de leur tuniques de Frères-Sergents.

La Papauté ne voit pas d'un très bon oeil Frédéric de Souabe (appelé; Frédéric II de Hohenstaufen) et le 17 août 1229, le Pape Grégoire IX rappelle la décision de Célestin II (1143). Mais les Teutoniques deviennent de plus en plus hostiles au Saint-Siège. En 1250 ils intègrent  l'Ordre de Saint-Martin des Bretons, fondé par l'Archevêque de Tours. Ils en firent de même au XV ème siècle avec l'Ordre fondé en 1235 par Richard Coeur de Lion (Croisés Anglais) qui bénéficiait de la protection de Grégoire IX.
Toujours est-il que André II de Hongrie, en 1217, retire les droits des Teutoniques en Hongrie et interdit le prélèvement d'impôts papals sur les Terres des Monarques, des Nobles et des Églises et stipule que nul étranger ne pourra posséder des terres en Hongrie.
Toutefois une Abbaye Cistércienne, installée de longue date en Hongrie, possédait un Maître et des Chevaliers Hongrois. Une Comanderie des Templiers s'y trouvait également: ce qui les mit à l'abri du courroux Monarchiste.  Pour une troisième fois, en 1234, Grégoire IX exigea que la Pologne et la Hongrie restituent leurs titres.

Revenons un peu à peu à Frédéric II de Hohenstaufen (1194-1250) qui régna sur le Saint-Empire Germanique de 1220 à 1250. Il fut Roi de Germanie, des Romains, de Sicile et de Jérusalem après avoir reconquis... les Terres Saintes. Excommunié deux fois, Grégoire IX le qualifia d'Antéchrist pour des motifs sérieux et assez bien documentés. Il parlait six langues et se complaisait à mener parfois des expériences sur des êtres vivants... Ce qui contribua sûrement à son surnom populaire de Stupor Mundi !!! Il fut le dernier Empereur de la Dynastie des Hohenstaufen.
En 1226, un duché de Pologne invita Frédéric II à participer à sa défense contre les Prussiens. C'est alors qu'il entreprit de tourner définitivement l'Ordre vers l'Est. L'idée lui vint d'établir un État Teutonique après l'échec de Hongrie... Frédéric II leur accorde le statut et les privilèges de Princes d'Empire. Ce qui n'échappa pas au Saint-Siège qui voyait le fossé s'élargir entre les fondements de la Démocratie Templière et l'Autarcie grandissante des Chevaliers Teutoniques: dû justement en raison de leurs visées ratées en Hongrie. C'est le Saint-Siège qui assuma l'humiliation en Hongrie en raison d'un Ordre de plus en plus hostile aux traditions Templières.
Toutefois le Marquis de Brandenburg, appuyé par le Gouverneur de Dantzig, convoitait également cet emplacement stratégique; Dantzig étant un Port, ce qui facilitait grandement le commerce et la finance. Le Duc de Pologne fit appel aux Teutoniques pour la défendre. Le Grand-Maître en personne Godefroy de Hohenlohe arrêta le Gouverneur de Dantzig et le plaça aux fers. La moitié de la Ville fut offerte aux Teutoniques par le Duc de Pologne en signe de grattitude.

La voie était donc tracée d'avance pour: Siegfried von Feuchtwangen (XV ème grand Maître de l'Ordre 1303-1311). Suite à leur défaite contre les Prussiens et les Lithuaniens (soldats de Jacwinge); les Teutoniques s'allient d'autres Ordres germaniques et les colons allemands et répondent par le feu et le sang. À cette époque le Siège de l'Ordre passe de Venise à Marienburg (Malbork, Pologne) sur la Nogat, au Sud de Dantzig (Gdansk, Pologne). Ils construisent plus de 95 villes et plusieurs Forteresses dont celles de Marienburg et de Gollub en Prusse. La plus impressionnante est celle de la ville de Königsberg (Kaliningrad); un autre Port stratégique....
Mais l'arrogance grandissante et l'appétit insatiable des Teutoniques encourage le nouveau souverain de Pologne à se révolter contre leur pouvoir. Ils ripostent en prenant la Poméranie. Finalement les Lithuaniens s'allient les Tartares, les Russes et les Samogitiens et tuent 26 Commandeurs et plus de 200 Chevaliers à la bataille de Rudan. Jusqu'au XIV ème siècle l'Ordre fonda plus de 1,400 nouveaux villages. Les Lithuamiens se convertirent éventuellement et les Slaves réduits à l'esclavage alors que l'Aristocratie fût massacrée...
En 1410 L'Ordre des Teutoniques connait la défaite à Grunwald face aux armées de la Pologne qui met fin à leur expansionisme: il perd 200 Chevaliers et 8,000 hommes. Le coup de grâce survient en 1466, après la Guerre de Treize Ans avec La Pologne (1454-1466). C'est alors que Casimir IV de Pologne exige la restitution de tous les territoires de l'Ordre à la Pologne; sauf la Livonie et la Prusse Orientale. Le Roi de Pologne devient de facto suzerain du Grand Maître de l'Ordre. Ce fut la fin de l'Ordre des Chevaliers Teutoniques

L'Ordre Charitable de Sainte-Marie des Allemands a malgré tout survécu jusqu'à notre époque.

Illuminated / Knights Templar 

and

Freemasons / Illuminati


Author: Sylvain Bériault

If there is a topic denatured by history, ancient and modern; a theme that became an incomprehensible gibberish due to propaganda, misinformation, sensationalism, popular films and so on ... It is the one of the Catholic Church juxtaposed with the emergence of secret societies of all kinds, who interacted with it for various reasons. And having downright infiltrated, in some cases, the Orders of the Holy See. Popular mythology today makes understanding the story even more difficult; since sensational literature, film and internet compulse a notorious tangle of contradictory notions.
Thus we come to think and believe that the Templars are Freemasons or vice versa and Enlightened or illuminations, which are ancient forms of Ecclesiastical words, can mysteriously be synonymous with the more contemporary Illuminati !!! It is also necessary to understand that the Illuminati (Lucifer- originally an Angel of Light which then appropriated Darkness) hold nothing in common with Christians and are in fact bitter enemies of any form or expression of Christianity: they draw on their part their pagan rites and titles among the ancient gods: Thor - Baal - Odin - Gog - Magog - Boaz ...

While the Templars were the creators, teachers and defenders of Western democracy:
- The Templars Orders of the Holy See were structured according to Nations Languages and Cultures. Each with their own coats of arms and colors and their customs.
- The Freemasons, for their part,are a distinct group in history who have no connection with the Holy See directly or with the Templars. Because they are stonemasons, architects and builders of temples, castles and churches ... Their brotherhood impose the law of silence to all members with the death penalty for breaking this code.
It is easily explained by the phenomenal income they derive from their skills ... who have increased and diversified, it goes without saying, over the centuries !!!
- The Illuminati themselves, began to exist, so to speak, at a specific time in history ... First with the help of powerful monarchies in France and Portugal in particular, which decimated several Orders of Templars (fearing their power, but essentially appropriating  their possessions). Some took refuge in Scotland and elsewhere and joined the ranks of Freemasonry while denying their orders (Law of Silence). Later it was an entire Templar Order, dissenting from the Holy See, which allied to the Lutherans and Calvinists to form the Protestant movement. They will quickly deny any form of democracy to institute an Autarcy in all its businesses during subsequent history. And instituting the worst massacres that all of the Inquisition combined !!!
It was originally: the Brothers of the Hospitaller Order of St. Mary of the Germans. An Order similar to the Crusaders but initially charitable because it was non-aligned to the Holy See. It became a Military Order afterwards and fought with the French and Italian Knights. But the Order covets the lands to the East leaning towards the advent of a Grand Teutonic Order. With the conquest of Prussia, in the year 1309, under the Grand Master Siegfried von Feuchtwagen. The Great Schism of 1525 will see Albert of Saxe ally and support the reform of Luther and revolts against Rome, establishing insane massacres. The Grand Master betrays his Order and enriches by appropriating all it’s possessions and establishes his capital at Königsberg. The order of the Knights of St. Mary of the Germans, however, survived the Grand Master's betrayal.

 

Let’s start from the beginning and the first Knights Templar Order of the Holy See
(Pope Callistus II)

July 15, 1099, Jerusalem is taken by Godfrey of Bouillon who chases Muslims.
- The Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is the first Christian guard in the East. These are the Regulars of St. Augustine. During the battle of Ramlah (September 8, 1101) they have almost all been exterminated. Some survivors (1117-1118), however, align themselves with Beaudoin II that hosts them in return for protection for pilgrims, in the Palace of Al Aqsa Massjid (near the Palace of the ancient king of Israel, Solomon). Others will join Spain. It was Louis VII who established the Order permanently in France at the Abbaye d'Orléans. In the year 1202, King Henry II (Plantagenet) of England takes them under his wing and they contribute to the creation of more than two thousand houses including those of Annecy - of Miechow - Savoy - and Holland. We recognize the important role played by England with the Catholic Orders until the advent of King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth 1 and Cromwell ... who perpetrated nothing less than a real genocide against them in Ireland and Scotland. In fact this was the Protestant Inquisition though it was not called as such but nevertheless resulted in more people killed than the whole of the Catholic Inquisition…

 

Why St. Augustine?

 

The Templars practiced a democracy that they taught. The Monastic Catholic Abbeys throughout Europe preserved the democratic structure of institutions. The KnightsTemplar preserved from the second millennium, the existence of the Western Nations on their traditional lands. Defence was previously assumed by the various military alliances of tribes, communities and ethnic groups gathered and united with God to face the barbarian invasions (Goths, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandals, Germanic East / East Franks, the First and Second Rome, the Lombards, the Byzantine Empire, Burgundians, etc). You should know that the Church has defended its multiple borders all through history and had to face powerful expansionist Empires. Thus highlighting the very principles of democracy taught by Catholicism ever since St. Augustine. It is very important to understand the thoughts and influence of St. Augustine through these two major stages of Catholicism (first and second millleniums). For it is he who introduced to Christians; the notions and values of democracy as defined by the Greek philosophers. From the First Millennium, the most influential Monastic Orders align themselves with St. Augustine. St. Augustine was a rhetorician born in Tunisia under the Roman Empire in the fourth century. In writing his major work: Confessions - He has not only demonstrated genius, but also invented the Autobiography !!!

The Teutonic, unfortunately, from the fourteenth century established an Autarcy modeled on the German Empire. Thus the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order ... turned into Grand Chief of the Armed Forces !!! Eliminating any democracy within it’s ranks. (Hitler tried to revive the Teutonic Order due to the lack of democracy within it and forged its emblem on this model: the Iron Cross. Besides the iconography and symbolism of the Illuminati attaches great importance to mockery of any Christian representation.
Moreover, it is interesting to note a key role of the Holy See in the story. While many authors are still trying to accuse the Catholic Church of having always been the enemy of knowledge and science ... Reality and history are quick to demonstrate otherwise. Most people are unaware of how the Church has not only broadcast but also preserved knowledge and science ... From St. Augustine (Confessions, 397-400 years) who demonstrated keen scientific rigor in his reasoning pertaining to biological, philosophical, psychological and even astrophysical matters - To Pope Sylvester II (Gerbert born Aurillac in the Cantal) - in the year 1000 - who proved that the Earth was round and that it revolved around the sun !!! Yes and by building, himself, a three-dimensional model consisting of three spheres !!! Five hundred years later Copernicus came to the same conclusions ... ..
It is the Freemasons (very close to Monarchies) who opposed the dissemination of knowledge (Law of silence): Not the Church.

From the fourth century (St. Augustine), European Cathechumens are essentially guided by Augustinian Abbeys (Canons Regular) and churches (Secular Clergy) for simplicity. And there is a distinction between these two dominant entities because the Abbeys are also the birthplace of the future Templar orders who become both Monastic (charitable) and Military (Templars) starting in the Second Millennium.

Who are these Catechumens? They are mainly Celts - Picts - Juts - Angls - Gauls (which give rise to western Germanic and Frankish) - and the Celts-Iberian (which will almost be exterminated later by the Visigoths in Northern Spain and then by; the Ummayades to the South). Centuries later; Visigoths, themselves threatened by the growing Muslim Empire, will join Catholics in a survival war.
-  The Empire of Ummayades from the seventh century extends from Persia to the whole of North Africa and the Celt-Iberian Peninsula early in the eighth century (711). In 732, expansion abruptly ends in Tours (France). And from 740 to 916, unable to go back to the north by the borders of the East because of the Byzantine Empire ... They attack Northern India (Gurjurat and Pratihara) who will push them back for more than two centuries.

All these ethnic groups and all their territories at the beginning of the First Millennium (I to V th centuries) were conquered by the Roman Empire (First Rome). All Land ... except the North of England: it contains the Picts and Celts. The Emperor Hadrian unable to defeat them began building a wall, in the year 122, to block trade in this region .... In 142, a second wall is erected further north; the Antonine Wall this time ... The North of England will play an important part in the establishment of Christianity.

 

The Monastery of Iona
(Hebrew: dove) an important step

 

Colum-Cill (Saint-Colomban of Iona 521-597), an exiled Irish, established the monastery, in 565, on the Ïle of Iona in the northwest of the Scottish coast. We are witnessing the birth of Christianity in the land of the Picts. Which is reflected by the Earth of Christians in the North (Scotland) and Celtic Christianity in Ireland, South (Irish Celts Dal Riada).
Burned and looted twice (802-806) by the Vikings, it was abandoned in 807 in favor of the new Monastery of Knells. This does not prevent the massacre of the monks in 986 ... The Vikings systematically attacked Monasteries and Abbeys from 794.
Originally Scotland was called Caledonia. The Britons, Celts of Sthrathclyre (Angles of Germany) occupied the Southeast. While the Irish Celts (Dal Riada) occupied the West. They eventually became known as Scots.
In 1203, the reconstruction of Iona Abbey clearly displays it’s membership in the Roman Catholic Church and thus defies Celtic Christianity. Reforms during the seventeenth century eliminated all traces of Catholicism; after it was anhihilated (1561) by the destruction of buildings, on the orders of the Scottish Parliament.
- The seventeenth century is interesting because it is at this time that the first Banknote and the First Bank appear; following the reforms in Europe. Indeed, until the late sixteenth century, the so-called banks (they only lend money or goods): Bank of Genoa and Venice Rialto Bank, for example, only centralize Bills of Exchange (credit notes) by simply continuing a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. That is to say, honoring nothing but the Credit Tickets.

The (modern) Banknote was invented by the Knights Templar in the eleventh century to protect pilgrims in the Holy Land. The Holy See had established a rigorous control of transactions using encrypted and secret cryptographic methods. And this cryptographic key was reprensented by the Cross of the Eight Beatitudes symbol of Venus Star (eight-pointed star): The Emblem of the Templars.

The Teutonic Knights
White Tunic + Black Cross on the left

The First Templar Order: Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem wore the White Robe. White being reserved for the Templar Order while Canons Regular (Monastic Orders) had black tunics. The Templar’s Cross always being red (Venus, the only planet visible during

daylight, the Illuminated Sky !!). This single detail is capital in it’s symbolism and understanding all that was needed to come to it. This is where a thorough knowledge of Saint-Augustine combined with his ancient knowledge are essential. A book not published in Israel (banned) is also of great assistance in this research : Moïse Maïnomide (Le guide des Égarés) 1135-1204.

The Hospitaller Order of Saint Mary of the Germans was created by a couple of Bremen merchants in 1128 and was attached to the Hospital of Notre-Dame (the French and the Italians, were attached to St. John's Hospital). In 1143, Pope Celestine II issued a bull that caters to all living in Germany under their hospice. It stipulates that all assets acquired including Ste-Marie of the Germans Hospital beare placed under the obedience of the Master of the Hospital of St. John. Thus placing all the orders on an equal footing. The Pope, still, leaves them a lot of autonomy which enables them (1190) to name their own Master. In this case, Henry Walberswick Master in the French city of Acrid of the Hospital of St. Mary of the Germans. Thanks to the links they weave fighting with the Italians and the French; they see themselves entrusted many teutonic Comanderies in France. They receive donations of Burgundy, Montpellier Hospital; the Teutonic House of Saint-Michel-de-Hermitage, etc. Gauthier (Bishop of Chartres) established the property of the Chapelle Saint-Michel to Teutonics (1226).
February 12, 1192, Pope Celestine III took the Order under his protection. The Popes Honorius III and Gregory IX codified the Order in 1216. Only the Pope can excommunicate them... This is an extraordinary privilege in the Middle Ages. Then their Grand Master under Honorius III, adopted the White Tunic identical to that of the French and ItalianTemplars: which irritated them to no end. To put an end to the conflict, the Pope ordered that the Order of the Teutonic displays a Black Cross on the left, in memory of their tunics as Friars Sergeants.

The Papacy did not see in a very good eye Frederick of Swabia (named; Frederick II of Hohenstaufen) and 17 August 1229, Pope Gregory IX recalls the decision of Pope Celestine II (1143). But the Teutonic become increasingly hostile to the Holy See. In 1250 they include the Order of Saint Martin of the Britons, founded by the Archbishop of Tours. They also englobe, in the fifteenth century, the Order founded in 1235 by Richard the Lionheart (English Crusaders), which enjoyed the protection of Gregory IX.
Meanwhile Andrew II of Hungary in 1217, revokes the rights of the Teutonic in Hungary and prohibits Papal taxes on Lands of Monarchs, Nobles and Churches and states that no foreigner can own land in Hungary.
However, a Cistercian abbey, long-established in Hungary, had a Master and Hungarian Knights. A Templar Comanderie was also functional: which put them out of reach of Monarchist wrath. For the third time in 1234 Gregory IX demanded that Poland and Hungary restore the Holy See Titles titles.

Let's go back a little to Frederick II of Hohenstaufen (1194-1250) who ruled the Holy Roman Empire from 1220 to 1250. He was King of Germany, Romans, Sicily and Jerusalem after recovering ... the Holy Lands. Excommunicated twice, Gregory IX called him the Antichrist for serious reasons that were quite well documented. He spoke six languages and delighted in occasionally conduct experiments on living beings ... which surely contributed to his popular nickname of Stupor Mundi !!! He was the last emperor of the dynasty of Hohenstaufen...
In 1226, a duchy of Poland invited Frederic II to participate in the defense against the Prussians. This is when he began to finally turn the Order to the east. It occurred to him to establish a Teutonic State after the failure in Hungary ... Frederick II grants them the status and privileges of Empire Princes. This did not escape the Holy See’s vigilant eye, which saw the gap widen between the foundations of democracy and the growing TeutonicTemplar Autarcie: Due precisely to their flunked Hungarian campaign. It is the Holy See who assumed the humiliation in Hungary mainly because of this growing hostility to the Templar traditions by the Teutonics.
However, the Marquis of Brandenburg, supported by the Governor of Danzig, also coveted this strategic location; Danzig is a port, which greatly facilitates trade and finance. The Duke of Poland appealed to the Teutonic Knights to defend it. The grand master in person Godfrey Hohenlohe arrested the Governor of Danzig and placed him in irons. Half of the city was offered to Teutonics by the Duke of Poland as a sign of grattitude.

The path was thus drawn in advance for Siegfried von Feuchtwangen (XV Grand Master of the Order 1303-1311). Following their defeat against the Prussians and Lithuanians (Jacwinge soldiers); the Teutonics combine with other Germanic Orders and German settlers and retaliate with fire and blood. At that time the seat of the Order goes from Venice (Byzantine Empire) to Marienburg (Malbork, Poland) on the Nogat, south of Danzig (Gdansk, Poland). They build more than 95 cities and several fortresses, including those of Marienburg and Gollub in Prussia. The most impressive is that of the city of Königsberg (Kaliningrad); another strategic port .... (especially today, very interesting)
But the growing arrogance and insatiable appetite of the Teutonics encourages the new King of Poland to revolt against their power. They retaliated by taking Pomerania. Finally Lithuanians combine  with the Tartars, Russians and Samogitians and kill 26 Commanders and over 200 Knights at the Battle of Rudan. Until the fourteenth century the Order founded over 1,400 new villages. The Lithuanians converted; Slavs were enslaved while the aristocracy was massacred ...
In 1410 The Order of the Teutonic, at last, knows defeat at Grunwald. Poland's armies ends their expansionism: it loses 200 Knights and 8,000 men. The coup de grace occurs in 1466, after the Thirteen Years' War with Poland (1454-1466). It was then that Poland’s Casimir IV demands the return of all the territories of the Order in Poland; except Livonia and East Prussia. The King of Poland becomes de facto overlord of the Grand Master of the Order. That was the end of the Teutonic Order !!

The Charitable Order of St. Mary of the Germans has nevertheless survived to our time.

What has Occidental Diplomacy been hiding
since World War One?

author: Sylvain Bériault


The Ukrainian Genocide (I – II – III – IV)


Why have some large scale criminal acts been ignored by Occidental Diplomacy since the first World War? That is the question. The Walter Duranty era takes us just there, at this crucial pivot in time, when the International Socialist Movement established it's roots, not only through all of Europe but unfortunately in North America as well. Ukraine is the key to this Dark Era worldwide. One has to understand that Russia's history, contrarily to most countries (France in France, U.K. in U.K. etc), does not originate in Russia specifically. But from Ukraine. And this is the nature of the conflict that is so well hidden from public knowledge with the complacency of Occidental Diplomacy and Media.
In fact, this planet's largest genocide occured through the mid 1920's and early 1930's. Period through which Walter Duranty; a New-YorkTimes (3 time) Pullitzer Prize winner and recipient of the Order of Lenine reported this from Ukraine: - Some conditions are bad in Ukraine, north of the Caucase and in the lower Volga. The rest of the country knows of sporadic but temporary rationings but not much more. These conditions are bad but there is NO FAMINE - . Contradicting Arthur Koestler's confidential claims to British sources, after a winter in Kharkov Capital of Ukraine (1932-1933). He also seemed to maintain the politics of silence concerning the world's most horrific genocide IN HISTORY.
Eight to ten million Ukrainians died directly or indirectly of starvation. Remember that july 25th 1927: Great Briitain cut all diplomatic, commercial and financial relations with Soviet Russia. Moscow accusing London of sustaining Georgian and Ukranian Counter-Revolutionary movements. Most of this genocide, it seems, occured in the northern Kouban region: precisely where native Ukranians are in a majority. 1927 is also the time when Balitski (head of the GPU) is officially sent to Ukraine by Moscow. To try and CORRECT the situation. Stalin was furious to learn that no effective measures had been taken in the Empire to falsify the Census Data.
Let's not forget that, from 1922 to 1927, the economy of the U.S.S.R. relied almost exclusively on the outside. Imports originating mainly from Germany, Austria, United-States, France and Czechoslovakia. The U.S.S.R. was in need of large foreign capital income. This put Moscow under heavy political pressure. Losing Ukraine to Counter-Revolutionary forces was their worst nightmare.

One should know that Ukraine assured most of the Empire's economy at the time with : 80% of the global Soviet Union production of Coal: 85% of Iron Ore : 70% of Metal : 82% of Sugar and 25% of Cereal production. So obviously, no economic control could be established without Moscow dominating Ukraine.
Moscow could and would not allow Ukraine to escape through foreign intervention. At least not before having initiated industrial development in other regions. So they started with western Oural-Kouznetsk. It was closer to the east: There, another three million missing Ukrainians must be added to the list of those sent to labour camps. Political repression was the only possible option for Moscow if it were to acquire the necessary work force to satisfy it's ambitions. So the Goulag deportations passed from 200,000 in 1927, to 250,000 in 1930 and 450,000 in 1933. Who knows how many have also disappeared farther north and in Syberia. Moscow called Ukrainian Nationalism: DEVIATIONISM.
It is revolting to discover that while starved Ukrainians are dying massively and are tossed by the thousands in convoys or literally burned because of devastating Typhus epidemics... Moscow is selling it's wheat at less than 2 Kopecks a Kilo: that it exports 31,500 tons of flour: 7,900 tons of meat and 49,3 million crates of fish.

So... the British Government definitely had strong justifications in establishing a blocus in 1927. Despite the French and American Propaganda.

The Ukrainian Genocide II
Statistical and Contextual Information Clarifications

 

As opposed to Duranty and Koestler who systematically eluded the horrors; for gain, power and glory. One american socialist by the name of Harry Lang, totally frightened by his visit of the U.S.S.R. fled; after learning from a soviet official that 6 million Ukrainians had perished in a famine. And a disenchanted american communist, J. Tawdul:  learned, for his part, that 8 million Ukrainians had died of hunger in the Kouban area.


It is only after 1944 that Koestler very timidly expressed numbers and reflections of the facts... Procrastinating, about official censorship and taboo and whatever, as recorded in the Soviet Press and Ukrainian tabloids!!! It never prevented this perverted and demential journalist of having a clean conscience.

He never even expressed guilt or remorse!!!


More recently, Professor S. Koultchystski who initially gave an estimate of 3,5 million victims, later revised the number to a more realistic evaluation of 6 million victims...
Known Demographic Data available for that period confirm the importance of losses. According to Soviet sources, Ukraine had 29 million inhabitants in 1929... and... 32,6 million in january 1932. Which adds to 32,7 million when the famine was initiated. However... Early 1933, the total population of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine totals 31 million inhabitants. At the end of 1933 it recorded at 30 million.... and in 1934: 29,1 million. There is a glitch when taking into  account the following: - The Census dated january 17 1939 : Ukraine had only 31,8 million inhabitants in lieu of the 38 million it should be counting when adding the Russian Immigrants.

So the 1935/1938 period essentially served to naturally fill the statistical deficit with an important flow of Russian Immigration. In the magnitude of 2 to 3 million.
Available data sums up to these figures:


- 1932 famine / deaths:                           1,504,600

- 1933 famine / deaths:                           3,317,000

- Total over 18 months:                          4,821,600

- 1934 deaths:                                           500,000

- Total deaths:                                        5,321,000

 

A gap in the Demographics appears when taking into account the evaluations performed from 1963 to 1983 to approximately 9 million: meaning - 6 million deaths by famine....- then 1 million EXECUTIONS ..... - and approximately 2 million DEPORTED. This enormous gap is confirmed by the study of Ukraine's rural populations. It is only with the january 6 1937 Census that matters become clearer. And it shows Ukraine holding a mere 28,388,000 inhabitants !!!! It is this Census that had infuriated Staline with the catastrophic numbers: so he imposed Total Secrecy  and orderd another Census (which was held two years later....) in january 1939... supposedly adding to the right figures.


The extermination of Ukrainians begun in 1930 and culminated into a demential genocide.
The chief architects of it: Lazarus Kaganovitch... Viktor Molotov... H. Petrovski... S. Kossior... V. Tchoubar...
In july of 1932, Molotov and Kaganovitch were dispatched to the Ukrainian Communist Party Conference in Kharkov to specifically supervise the revision of appropriate measures...!!!
Officially the economic situation pertaining to the collectivisation of rural areas is thought to have provoked the disaster...!!!

But a closer study of data demonstrates that it is in fact the International Situation of Soviet Russia (and of the U.S.S.R. as a whole) that forced Moscow to initiate the terrible process of destruction and death.


In december 1927 : The Communist Party of Russian Bolcheviks (formerly known as Communist Party of the Union) adopted a quinquenal plan at it's 15th congress. The objectives were: - To rapidly develop key economic growth and defence capacities in the event of a blocus - And to reduce dependancy on the Capitalist World - The plan concerned the Soviet Union as a whole and severely hit regions south of Bielorussia, the Volga, Northern Caucasia and Kazakhstan. Tragically the region stamped with Total Secrecy was to discover in 1927:  that Nationalist Deviationism was promulgated as Public Ennemy No 1.
The collectivisation sparked total disorganization of rural areas unable to cope with it; which meant nearly everywhere. Shortages soon appeared and consequentely severe hunger: Since massive exportation of cereals and food ressources was destined to Soviet Russia and ultimately Foreign Markets to rake in desperately needed Capital required by Moscow.
The Plan was concluded sooner than scheduled. Moscow was triumphant. In january 1933, Stalin declared - ... - The Victorious realisation of the Plan has for result, and as of now, an increased Defence capacity.... of the country ... - ... - We had but one Coal and Ore Mining base - that of Ukraine - (now).... We have created a new Coal and Ore Mining Base to the East which constitutes the Pride of Our Country...
But Foreign Observers of this period are not as insensitive as expected by Stalin. The Italian Counsulate in Kharkov, for example, notes in it's may 25th 1933 report intitled : The Famine and The Ukrainian Affairs.... - ... - the famine was deliberatly initiated to serve as a lesson.... - ....according to GPU sources.... and to... - bring about a modification to ETHNIC MATERIAL in Ukraine, since that we found localy could not become GOOD COMMUNISTS !!!!!!!

 

The accountability issue naturally surfaced after the LIBERALISATION of the Soviet Regime. Ogoniok journal of Moscow writes in march 1988: - ... millions of poor famelics died without a cause... for the 1933 tragedy. - The Historical Responsability points to Stalin and all Members of the Politburo in his Defence...
Big deal, the main mischief of the genocide, Lazar KAGANOVITCH, quietly spent his life in Moscow. Some sources placing him directly after Stalin on the scale of accountability for the famine......In  Ukraine, the matter was taken to the KGB and Justice,

with NO AVAIL......!!!!!

The Soviet Union has long faded away....


And a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY HAS BEEN COMITTED in the NAME of INTERNATIONAL STATE POWER and the UTOPIAN IDEOLOGY of a LEFTIST PARTY at the service of a TRADITIONAL IMPERIAL CENTRE

 

Now this:
THIRTY PER CENT of the VICTIMS : WERE OF THE SAME ETHNICITY AS THEIR ASSASSINS.
NAMELY:  BUTCHERS  STALIN and KAGANOVITVCH
( the GBU archives)

The Ukrainian Genocide (III)

and the ensuing ramifications of the
International Socialist Agenda
in contemporary issues

 

Ukrainian Genocide conclusion


The tragic Ukrainian Famine was planned and orchestrated by the Politburo and the Communist Party Comity, it's motivations being:
Neutralize any pretentions to independance by Ukraine
Recuperate wheat stocks for exportation (by starving Ukrainians)

To dirty the hands of all repression organizations: Political Police, NKVD and thus put their obedience to a test.
 

Once the decision being taken they had the dirty work performed by the Party of Ukraine and the NKVD. This secret setup by Stalin and Kaganovitch (NKVD) sealed the fate of tens of millions of human beings, most of which died under atrocious conditions.

 

Rather strange don't you think ? The absolute silence that still surrounds Lazarus Kaganovitch : the most illustrious BUTCHER of the XXth century.... He is STILL UNKNOWN !!! While his nazi twin: Adolf Eichman is still largely showcased as the sole architect of the Soah...
Kaganovitch - Hitler - Himmler - Eichmann - Stalin... were all of the same ethnicity. It didn't prevent Kaganovitch of also exterminating 30% of Ukrainians of Jewish origins... without expressing any remorse.

Rather Strange...?
Not quite. Perhaps the NEGATION of CRIMES committed by socialist regimes coupled to the ethnicity of Lazarus Kaganovitch explain the ultimate fact.
Rather embarrassing isn't it that a Socialist Soviet should be responsible of more deaths and atrocities than a German SS.......!!!! How would most of the international socialist movements of Europe and the Americas have reacted to this???

 

So what has Occidental Diplomacy been hiding ?
About What and About Who ?
And for what Purpose or Agenda ?

 

It all becomes clearer through more contemporary issues pertaining to World Economics and Power. Don't get me wrong, there was and still is a Worldwide Socialist Agenda that has for ultimate goal the establishment of a World Government through Communism. And this seemingly non-existent web of Power has it's roots deeply set into all facets of the World Economy and Politics. This incredibly hard to pinpoint group of Concentric Circles consists of influent corporations, bankers and politicians (in the lower echelons) and is not a myth... They are referred to in populist propaganda as Illuminaties, Falcons, Masons and dozens of other iconic depictions (in other words Tin Foil Hat Propaganda tailored for OXYMORONS); but the basic facts are real and well documented in most cases: and substantiated through history dating back to the XVIIth century (as you will find out in excerpt No 3). There is nothing mystical, metaphysical or alien about them as some would like you to believe. It simply is an abominable and despicable doctrine of power and enslavement and butchery.
The daily news bulletins simply state the facts that remain invisible to the average reader for fear of realizing that the unimaginable can actually unfold before them... Fear is a very powerful tool of individual and mass control. In fact you don't need a degree of any sort to understand what is really going on. You simply have to face reality for what it is: ugly - degenerate - monstruous - barbaric - insane.
How many thousands of civilian deaths to date in the Middle East, in the past six months ??? In Syria alone the toll already exceeds hundreds... of thousands. If you don't get the point: you should perhaps learn how to read or at least think...

I might atempt a brief historical document on the topic enventually...

An Epilogue Maybe...?

And while this ignominious crime was being comitted:
 

- WHERE were the PROGRESSISTS ?
- WHERE were the JOURNALISTS ?
- WHERE were the INTELLECTUALS ?
- WHERE was the HUMAN RIGHTS COMMITTEE ?
- WHERE was LICRA ?
- WHERE were the JURIST'S ASSOCIATIONS ?

 

SORRY....
YOU CAN'T SERVE :
STALIN and humanity SIMULTANEOUSLY

Poor stupid Jean-Paul Sartre..... he tried so hard to believe...

L'Autocéphalie Orthodoxe prive la Russie
de sa
Mythologie Impériale (1)

 

Auteur: Sylvain Bériault

 

Toute ma vie je me suis posé la question suivante: comment peut-on définir l'amitié; je ne parle pas d'une forme d'amitié ou des raisons qui nous poussent vers autrui. Mais bien de sa définition intégrale en tant que lien.
Pour moi il n'y a plus aucun doute à ce sujet. L'amitié n'est rien d'autre que la reconnaissance de l'âme d'autrui. C'est le début du respect mutuel qui caractérise et définit les qualités de chacun. Et à ce chapitre, je déclare avoir eu le privilège d'une amitié remarquable aujourd'hui éteinte, mais qui brille néanmoins de tous ses feux par la richesse de sa valeur. Et peut-être même de ses enseignements. Pour des raisons que vous comprendrez; je n'utiliserai que le prénom, Vincent, d'un ami qui dût vivre longtemps comme un apatride; sous un nom officieusement officiel, composé de contractions grammaticales, le rattachant néanmoins à ses origines. Cet expatrié a loyalement servi comme Officier de l'Armée de l'Air Française et contribué au bien vivre de tant d'autres Nations et de patients; à titre d'officier médical.... Qu'il serait difficile de passer sous silence la motivation principale de sa valeur en tant qu'être humain extraordinaire. L'amour de ses origines, de sa patrie, de sa vie... L'Ukraine.

 

- Sylvain, je pense que cette étude... te fera mieux également comprendre ce que l'Ukraine fut en réalité... dans l'histoire de la Russie... Pour moi personnellement et cela n'engage que moi... Je dis et déclare que l'Ukraine est la mère de la Russie... et de toutes les républiques soviétiques... En compulsant l'histoire... la science russe... l'économie... la littérature... les grands musiciens...et encore les grands auteurs. Tout cela a été... et provient de l'Ukraine. Il y a des noms illustres pour leurs travaux à tous les niveaux de la richesse culturelle et qui ont amélioré... et enrichi la culture philosophique... scientifique de l'Ukraine tel des noms comme: Rogatchevsky... Vernadskii... Stolypin... Shigaeva... Korolenko... Georgi Staritskaya... Shertkel... Diaguilev... Rakhmaninov... Krymski... Timchenko...

Bon, revenons à nos moutons... et je pense que ces lignes sont un petit déclic expliquant ceci ou cela. Dans la toile de fond des pensées ou méditations... Il est bon de connaître certaines Grandes Vérités comme celles qui suivent: bon je me lance: et pour que tu saisisses mieux je vais t'aiguiller dans le sujet par des questions et réponses:::: ma foi vieille branche ne m'en veux pas... mais c'est peut-être ma vocation d'enseignant qui ressort on ne sait par quel trou de... poche du cortex....;

La signature, en 2002, par le président de l'Ukraine (... nommé Léonid Koutchma.... enfin ça ne regarde que moi) d'un Oukaz... (d'un ordre dirons-nous. officiel, gouvernemental) ordonnant la Commémoration du 350ème  anniversaire du Cinseil Cosaque à Pérèïaslaw, fut l'objet d'une profonde indignation de l'élite Ukrainienne intellectuelle et démocratique.
Pour mieux comprendre la signification de cet événement voyons donc:

---- De quelle célébration s'agit-il...?

En janvier 1654, dans la ville de Pérèïaslaw, le général en Chef Bogdane Khmelnytskï aurait conclu un accord avec les représentants du tsar de la Moscovie orthodoxe qui stipulait sa protection, celle de son armée cosaque, du peuple ROUS (c'est-à-dire ukrainien) et de l'Ukraine des deux rives du Dniepr.

---- Mais quelle protection...?

Cela s'explique par la différence entre les deux mentalités: la mentalité européenne des Cosaques ukrainiens et la mentalité orientale de la Moscovie. Les Cosaques ont prêté serment de leur loyauté au tsar, tous les droits et libertés de l'Ukraine. Mais les représentants moscovites ont répondu que ; - le tsar ne doit rien promettre à ses esclaves...!!!

---- Alors question: - pouquoi ce général en chef... Aurait conclu... N'est-ce pas un fait certain...?

l'ironie consiste dans le fait que, pour exiger une telle célébration, la Russie se base non sur des documents originaux - existants -, mais sur des rapports moscovites, postérieurs à l'événement.

---- Alors, comment la Russie présente-t'elle l'épisode de Pèréïaslaw...?

La mythologie soviétique allègue que l'Ukraine s'est liée à la Russie (historiquement...linguistiquement... psychologiquement...) et, le plus important, que l'État de Kiev (X- XIV èmes siècles) était un, et qu'il y avait qu'un seul peuple... une seule culture...: C'est pourquoi l'Urss a traité l'événement du XVII ème siècle de Pèrèïaslaw comme une... réunification... , une restauration de l'unité russe...!! Ce point de vue chauviniste-impérial contredit LA RÉALITÉ de l'existence de l'identité nationale ukrainienne.

---- Alors (dirons-nous) pourquoi la Russie actuelle refuse-t'elle de voir l'Ukraine indépendante...?

NON pas, parce que l'Ukraine a... PRIVÉ la Russie de 3,7% du territoire soviétique, et pas plus pour des raisons économiques ou militaires... (quoique...) : l'Ukraine est intéressée de développer ses relations avec la Russie, comme avec tous ses voisins.
Mais le crime principal, si on peut appeler cela ainsi ou la faute, de l'Ukraine envers la Russie est que l'Ukraine a privé la Russie de sa mythologie impériale...!!!

Toute nation, en Europe, commence son histoire à partir de son territoire... O:K...!!! La France commence son histoire à partir de la Gaule... et non à partir de Rome.- À l'inverse, la Russie conçoit Moscou, comme la 3ème Rome... Selon la thèse traditionnelle russe, l'empire romain se prolongea par l'empire byzantin... et celui-ci par- l'empire de Kiev-Moscou... - Pour la mentalité russe, le nom de ROU est le synonyme poétique de Russie.

alors que pour tous les autres, les Ukrainiens... les Polonais... les Tchèques... les Lithuaniens et les autres peuples de l'Europe du Centre-est, le nom de ROUS signifie : - Empire
Médiéval du Xème au XIVème siècle qui comprenait toute la Biélorussie, une grande partie de l'Ukraine et une bande étroite Extrême-Orientale de la future.
russie.

Au Moyen-Âge et à l'époque de la Renaisance presque tous les grands suzerains aspiraient à être reconnus comme Monarques de...la ROUS...- C'étaient, par exemple, le grand Duc de Lithuanie, le tsar de la Moscovie, les rois de Pologne et de Suède, et même le ...Sultan Ottoman...!- Mais l'Europe Occidentale reconnaissait le droit de porter ce titre à chaque suzerain qui contrôlait de facto KIEV...- C'est pourquoi la Moscovie ne s'est transformée en Russie  ...seulement qu'au commencement du XVIIIème siècle...

De sa guerre de libération contre la Pologne, l'élite ukrainienne avait besoin d'un...charisme légitimé et sacré par un accord avec l'une des trois grandes puissances voisines. C'est pourquoi ce général en chef Khmelmytskyï conclut un accord de protectorat politique d'abord avec le sultan ottoman... puis avec le Tsar de Moscou... et ENFIN, il prépara un accord analogique avec le Roi de Suède. D'après tous ces documents l'Ukraine Cosaque préservait l'autonomie complète dans les domaines : administratif, militaire..., diplomatique,... fiscal,... législatif... et même religieux, et l'Église ukrainienne conservait sa subordination au Patriarcat de Constantinople.

Pendant cette guere de libération, les nobles polonais furent expulsés et le servage aboli de facto par les autorités cosaques...- L'ironie de l'histoire a voulu que la même année 1649, le nouveau codex approuvé par le tsar instaura définitivement le servage des paysans... en Moscovie...!!!

L'armée cosaque ukrainienne était plus Nombreuse et plus Forte que celle de la Moscovie.- C'est pourquoi le tsar accepta une nouvelle partition de l'Ukraine avec les Polonais et les Turcs afin... d'affaiblir ses nouveaux sujets cosaques.

---- Question:- qu'en est-il des traités conclus avec la Moscovie...?

Tous les traités conclus avec les Cosaques ukrainiens pendant le demi-siècle qui suivit furent... Violés par la Moscovie. mais il faut dire que certains officiers cosaques
trahirent la cause de l'indépendance nationale de l'Ukraine pour... avoir les mêmes droits de propriétés que les nobles moscovites, servage y compris... (tu vois Sylvain comme quoi les finances ont toujours dominé la raison du bien-être personnel) Enfin bref...

---- En quoi donc cette commémoration est-elle incongrue...? dirons-nous.

vers la fin du XVIIIème siècle, après l'événement qui est imposé de célébrer, la plus grande partie de l'Ukraine fut subjuguée par l'empire russe, le servage- restauré, et tous les attributs de l'identité nationale, politique et culturelle de l'Ukraine...- supprimés...!

En résumé à l'heure actuelle : Si la Russie accepte l'existence de l'Ukraine amicalement en bon voisin, ...et comprend que l'Ukraine n'est pas... et ne sera jamais plus une partie
de son empire, ce sera beaucoup mieux pour la Russie elle-même parce qu'elle pourra concentrer ses efforts sur le développement de ses propres ressources, du reste extrêmement
riches.

UKRAINE
Orthodoxie vers l'Autocéphalie...?
(2)

 

- Quelle est la situation actuelle de l'orthodoxie ukrainienne ?

- A-t'elle des chances de devenir autocéphale et pourquoi ?

 

En 988, Kiev devint le centre historique du christianisme des terres Slaves de l'Est, le point de propagation des Evangiles vers le Nord et l'Est. Pendant près de 7 siècles, la Métropole de Kiev (ou Kyïv en version officielle) dépendait du patriarche de Constantinople, et c'est seulement en 1686 que le patriarche de Moscou l'a assujettie.
Ce changement de subordination eut lieu dans des circonstances douteuses du point de vue du droit canonique, et Constantinople eut plus d'une occasion de le rappeler à l'Orthodoxie Oecuménique du 20è. siècle. D'ailleurs, chaque fois que l'Ukraine commençait sa lutte de libération nationale, les orthodoxes cherchaient à se séparer de Moscou.
L'indépendance de l'Ukraine aurait dû obligatoirement s'accompagner de celle de l'Eglise orthodoxe ukrainienne : selon le droit canonique des Eglises Orthodoxes, toutes modifications des frontières civiles entraine une modification des limites de juridictions des Eglises. Les Eglises orthodoxes autocéphales (autonomes) apparaissaient là ou surgissaient les Etats indépendants. Comme en Grèce, en Roumanie, en Serbie, en Bulgarie, en Russie. inversement, la disparition de l'Etat signifiait la perte de l'autocéphalie.
Ainsi en fut-il de l'Eglise orthodoxe bulgare qui obtint son autocéphalie (autonomie) à trois reprises et la perdit 2 fois, les Eglises Serbes et Géorgiennes accédèrent à l'autocéphalie à deux reprises, etc...
C'est pourquoi la non-reconnaissance de l'autocéphalie de l'Eglise orthodoxe regroupant la plus grande partie de la population de tel ou tel Etat est ressentie comme une non-reconnaissance indirecte de la souveraineté de ce dernier, et suscite une réaction vive de la part des sociétés et des gouvernements.
Ceci explique la persévérance dont firent preuve l'Administration du Président Leonid Kravchouk puis celui du Président Léonid Koutchma dans la question de l'autocéphalie de l'orthodoxie ukrainienne.
Cette persévérance se heurta cependant à une résistance acharnée non seulement de la part du Patriarcat de Moscou, dont près de la moitié des paroisses sont situés sur le territoire d'Ukraine, mais aussi à une incompréhension dans plusieurs capitales orthodoxes orientées traditionnellement vers Moscou.
Toutefois l'obstacle principal réside dans les croyants. Une partie d'entre eux considèrent le fait de relever du Patriarcat de Moscou come historiquement injuste, humiliant, tandis que d'autres n'y voient rien d'anormal : la division dans l'orthodoxie ukrainienne reflète à peu de choses près les contradictions qui perdurent encore dans la société ukrainienne. Notamment dans la conscience nationale, dans l'approche de l'histoire du pays, de sa culture, et même dans la psychologie. Une troisième catégorie comprenant certains ecclésiastiques et fidèles, pensent que les problèmes de juridiction ne constituent pas un défi majeur lancé à l'orthodoxie par une société post-communiste sans foi. (entre nous Sylvain je te leur ferai voir moi ou est... ou en quoi consiste leur juridiction à ces curetons de pacotille... ils sont à mon avis

 

---- des problèmes de transmission informatique - autant de mon côté que du sien (je l'apprendrai quelques semaines plus tard, son portable a été totalement lessivé et il a été obligé de le faire reformater en usine selon son vocabulaire) - ont empêché Vincent de me livrer la suite. Heureusement les liens Suisse/Canada se sont rétablis.----

 

...(oui je disais que tous curetons étaient pire que l'Inquisition...et que c'est surtout ceux-là qu'ils auraient fallu déportés et faire un peu bosser en Sibérie)

Bon je continue...

L'année du Grand Jubilé apporta cependant d'importantes corrections à la question de l'orthodoxie ukrainienne.
D'abord, on constate un changement sensible dans les orientations du Patriarche oeucuménique de Constantinople, soit Bartholomée I, premier hierarque dans le monde orthodoxe. Il laissa entendre qu'il ne souhaite plus suivre la politique de Moscou dans la question ukrainienne et qu'il serait prêt à faciliter la reconnaissance des Eglises orthodoxes Ukrainiennes qui s'étaient déclarées indépendantes de Moscou, mais ne sont toujours pas reconnues par l'orthodoxie oecuménique.
Deuxièmement, ces Eglises qui, jusqu'ici étaient en concurrence, ont enfin entrepris le rapprochement et le 8 novembre 03, elles signèrent, dans la résidence du Patriarche de Constantinople à Istanbul, des accords consacrants le commencement du processus de réunification.
Et enfin, jamais auparavant un Chef d'état ukrainien n'avait exprimé aussi clairement son intention ferme et déterminée de contribuer è la réunion et à l'indépendance de l'Eglise orthodoxe ukrainienne.
Il va de soi que la voie qui y mène ne sera pas sans encombre, car il ne s'agit pas de quelques procédures techniques.
En tout état de cause, les sondages de l'opinion publique attestent que le vecteur identitaire de la plupart des croyants orthodoxes vise plutôt Kiev que Moscou...!!!

DISCOURS DU PAPE À L’ASSOCIATION DU PATRONAT CATHOLIQUE ITALIEN
F.59 / 85 – Cité du Vatican -
&
DÉCLARATIONS D’UN RÉFUGIÉ À PROPOS DE MGR BERAN
F.59 / 88 – Trieste -


Un réfugié de Tchécoslovaquie, Stanislas Keutsic, a fait un récit – publié dans le dernier numéro de Vita Cattolica, hebdomadaire du diocèse de Trieste – relatif à la disparition, depuis plus de dix ans, de Mgr Beran, archevêque de Prague, qui, s’il est encore en vie, accomplirait ces jours-ci sa soixante-dixième année.
Mgr Joseph Beran fut emprisonné,  comme on se le rappelera, par les autorités communistes tchécoslovaques, le 19 juin 1949, jour de la Fête-Dieu, à la fin d’une cérémonie religieuse dans la cathédrale de Strahev. Au cours du rite sacré, il avait courageusement déclaré, à propos des fameux catholiques indépendants, qu’il n’existe qu’une seule vérité, un seul Catholicisme et que celui-ci n’est pas possible sans le Saint-Père.  À la sortie, il fut arrêté par la police.
Depuis ce jour – écrit le réfugié – , les fidèles n’ont plus rien su de leur évêque, mais son souvenir demeure vivant parmi nous, même si depuis si longtemps il est contraint au silence où s’il n’est plus vivant aujourd’hui.
Le récit de Stanislas Keutsic se poursuit en évoquant les phases de la dernière rencontre de l’archevêque avec son peuple qui remplissait ce matin-là l’église abattue de Strahev.
Il se peut – déclara Mgr Beran à cette occasion – que je vous prêche aujourd’hui pour la dernière fois ; aussi je voudrais vous dire que, peut-être, prochainement vous entendrez dire ou vous lirez – et la radio le transmettra jour et nuit jusqu’à satiété – que moi, archevêque de Prague, j’ai signé quelque accord auquel j’ai adhéré ou que j’aurais approuvé. Par conséquent, aujourd’hui, devant Dieu et devant tout le monde, comme évêque je jure que je ne signerai ni n’approuverai jamais rien qui ne soit pas conforme à la loi de Dieu. J’espère que vous me croyez et ne croirez pas ce que l’on dira peut-être avant peu.

The Orthodox Autocephaly deprives Russia
of it’s
Imperial Mythology (I)

 

All my life I asked myself this question: how can we define friendship ? I do not speak of a form of friendship or of reasons that push us towards others. But of its full definition as a link / a bond.
For me there is no doubt about it: Friendship is nothing but the recognition of another's soul. This is the beginning of mutual respect that characterizes and defines the qualities of each human soul. And in this regard, I declare that I have had the privilege of a remarkable friendship now extinct. Which nevertheless shines in all its glory for the richness of its value. And perhaps of it’s teachings. For reasons you will understand; I will not use the name, Vincent, of a friend who had to live as a stateless person; under an unofficially official name, consisting of grammatical contractions; linking him nevertheless to his origins. This expatriate, faithfully served as an Officer of the French Air Force and contributed to the good of so many other Nations and the survival of war victims; as a medical officer .... It would be hard to ignore the main motivation of his values, as a great human being: The love of his origins, his homeland, his life ... Ukraine.

 

Here is a transcription of one of our encounters

 

- Sylvain, I think this study ... will help you understand what Ukraine actually was ... in the history of russia ... For me personally, and this is only my opinion ... I say and proclaim that Ukraine is the mother of russia ... and of all the soviet republics. When poring history ... russian science ... economy ... literature .. . the great musicians ... and the great authors. All this was ... and comes from Ukraine. There are illustrious names for their work at all levels of cultural wealth that have improved and enriched scientific and philosophical culture of Ukraine such names like: Rogatchevsky ... Vernadskii ... Stolypin ... Shigaeva Korolenko .. Georgi… Staritskaya …Shertkel.. Diaguilev ...Rakhmaninov…Krymsky ... Timchenko ...

Well, back on topic ... I think these lines are a little click explaining this or that. In the backdrop thoughts or meditations ... It's good to know some Important Truths such as the following. Let me begin: and so you better comprehend; I'll steer you in the subject with questions and answers: ::: by gosh old friend do not blame me ... perhaps this comes from a vocation as a teacher that somehow springs through a hole of my cortex…  

The signing in 2002 by the President of Ukraine (... named Leonid Kuchma .... well it is my business) of a Oukaz ... (by an Official or government order shall we say.) ordering the Commemoration of the 350th anniversary of Cossack Council to Pérèïaslaw, was the subject of outrage from the intellectual and democratic Ukrainian elite.
To better understand the significance of this event, let’s see:

---- What celebration is it ...?

In January 1654, in the city of Pérèïaslaw, General in Chief Bogdane Khmelnytskyi reached an agreement with representatives of the Orthodox Tsar of Muscovy, which provided protection, that of his Cossack army of Rous people (Ukrainian people) and Ukraine on both banks of the Dnieper.

---- But what protection ...?

This is explained by the difference between the two mindsets: the European mentality of Ukrainian Cossacks and the Eastern mentality of Muscovy. The Cossacks swore their loyalty to the tsar, all the rights and freedoms of Ukraine. But Moscow officials responded that; - The Czar should not promise anything to his slaves ... !!!

---- So, question ! - Why would a General in Chief have concluded ... If such were the facts...?

the irony is the fact that to require such a celebration, Russia does not base it on original – existing – documents - but on Moscow reports, posterior to those events.

---- So how does Russia present this episode of Pèréïaslaw ...?

Soviet mythology claims that Ukraine is linked to Russia (historically ... ... linguistically psychologically ...) and, most importantly, that the state of Kiev (X-XIV th centuries) was one and that there was only one people ... one culture ...: That's why the USSR has processed the event of the XVII century Pèrèïaslaw reunification as a ... ... a restoration of the Russian unity ... !! This chauvinist-imperial point of view contradicts REALITY and the existence of the Ukrainian national identity.

---- Then (shall we say) why does current Russia refuse to recognize the independance of Ukraine ...?

It’s not, because Ukraine ... has deprived Russia of 3.7% of Soviet territory, and no more for economic or military reasons ... (although ...): Ukraine is interested in developing its relations with Russia, as with all its neighbors.
But the main crime, if one can call it that or the main fault of Ukraine towards Russia; is that Ukraine has deprived Russia of its imperial mythology ... !!!

Every nation in Europe, begins it’s story from its territory ... O: K ... !!! That of France begins  from Gaul ... and not from Rome.- Conversely, Russia sees Moscow by design as the third Rome ... According to the Russian traditional thesis, the Roman Empire extended past the Byzantine Empire ... and towards the empire of Kiev-Moscow ... - For the Russian mentality, the name ROU (RU) is pœticaly synonymous with Russia.

while for all others, Ukrainians, Poles ... ... the Czechs ... Lithuanians and other peoples of East Central Europe, the name of Rous (RU) means: - Empire
A Medieval Empire which from the tenth to the fourteenth century included the entire Belarus, most of Ukraine and a narrow band Far East of the future.
russia.

In the Middle Ages and the time of the Renaisance almost all major overlords aspired to be recognized as the Monarchs of the... ROUS ...- They were, for example, the Grand Duke of Lithuania, the czar of Muscovy, the kings of Poland and Sweden, and even the Ottoman Sultan ... ... - Western Europe recognized the right to use that title to every overlord who controlled KIEV, de facto...- it is why Muscovy was transformed into Russia ... only at the beginning of the eighteenth century ...

For it’s liberation war against Poland, to succeed; the Ukrainian elite needed a legitimate and sacred charisma ... an agreement with one of the three neighboring powers. That is why this commander in chief Khmelmytskyï reached a political protectorate agreement, first with the Ottoman Sultan ... then with the Moscow Tsar ... and FINALLY, he prepared an analog agreement with the King of Sweden. According to these documents Cossack Ukraine preserved complete autonomy in these areas: administrative, military ... diplomatic ... tax ... legislative ... and even religious freedom. The Ukrainian Church preserved its subordination to the Patriarchate of Constantinople.

When the war with poland ended; Polish nobles were expelled and serfdom abolished de facto, by the Cossacks authorities ...- The irony of history would have it the same year, 1649, the new codex approved by the Tsar:  re-instituted serfdom (slavery) of peasants in Muscovy ... ... !!!

The Ukrainian Cossack army was Larger and Mightier than that of Moscovia.- Therefore the tsar accepted a new partition of Ukraine with the Poles and Turks ... to weaken its new Cossack subjects.

---- Question: - What about treaties with Muscovy ...?

All treaties with the Ukrainian Cossacks during the half century that followed were ... Violated by Muscovy. but it must be said that some Cossack officers
betrayed the cause of national independence of Ukraine ... to have the same property rights as the Moscow nobles, including slavery and bondage ... (you see Sylvain like what finances have always dominated the reasons for well being) Anyway ...

---- In what sense then is this commemoration incongruous ...? shall we say.

In the late eighteenth century, after the event that is imposed to celebrate. The largest part of Ukraine was subjugated by the Russian empire, servage (slavery) restored- and all the attributes of national, political and cultural Ukrainian identity ...- deleted ...!

In summary at this time: If Russia accepts the existence of Ukraine as a friendly good neighbor ... and understands that Ukraine is not ... and will never be a part
of it’sempire, it will be much better for Russia itself because it will allow it to focus its efforts on developing its own resources, which are extremely
rich.

UKRAINE
Orthodoxy towards Autocephaly ...?
(2)

 

- What is the current status of Ukrainian Orthodoxy?

- Does it stand any chance of becoming autocephalous and why?

 

In 988, Kiev became the historic center of Christianity in the Eastern Slavic lands, the difusion point of the Gospel to the North and East. For nearly seven centuries the Metropolis of Kiev (Kyiv in official version) was aligned on the Patriarch of Constantinople, and it was only in 1686 that the Patriarch of Moscow subjected it.
This change of subordination occurred in suspicious circumstances in canon law perspective, and Constantinople has on more than one occasion had to remind it often in the XX th century to the Orthodox Ecumenical. Moreover, whenever Ukraine began its struggle for national liberation, the Orthodox also sought to separate themselves from Moscow.
The independence of Ukraine should necessarily be accompanied by that of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, according to the canon law of the Orthodox Churches, any changes in civil frontiers causes a change in the borders of Churches Courts limits. Autocephalous Orthodox Churches (autonomous) appeared where arose independent states. As in Greece, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia. conversely, the disappearance of the state meant the loss of autocephaly.
This is why the Bulgarian Orthodox Church gained its autocephaly (autonomy) three times and lost it 2 times, Serbs and Georgian churches acceded to autocephaly twice, etc ...
This is why the non-recognition of the autocephalous Orthodox Church gathering most of the population of a particular State is seen as an indirect non-recognition of the sovereignty of the latter, and arouses a strong reaction on the part of populations and governments.
This explains the perseverance by the Administration of President Leonid Kravchuk and by President Leonid Kuchma in the question of autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodoxy.
This perseverance, however, was met with fierce resistance not only by the Moscow Patriarchate: since nearly half the parishes are located on the territory of Ukraine, but also due to a lack of understanding in many Orthodox capitals traditionally oriented towards Moscow.
However, the main obstacle is the believers. Some of them consider being subordinated to the Moscow Patriarchate is historically unjust, humiliating. While others see nothing unusual: this division in the Ukrainian Orthodoxy reflects pretty much the contradictions that still persist in Ukrainian society. Especially in the national consciousness, in the approach to the country's history, culture, and even psychology. A third category includes some clergy and faithful, who think that jurisdictional issues do not constitute a major challenge to orthodoxy within a post-communist society without faith. (Sylvain between you and me: I will show them  what their jurisdiction is…to these brainless bunch ... they are in my opinion

 

---- Computer transmission problems - on both sides (I learned a few weeks later) - prevented Vincent delivering the conversation to me. Fortunately Switzerland / Canada links were re-established.----

 

... (yes I said all these dumbos were worse than the Inquisition ... and it's mostly those they should have had deported for some work in Siberia)

Well, I shall continue ...

The year of the Great Jubilee, however, brought important corrections to the question of Ukrainian Orthodoxy.
First, there was a significant change in the orientation of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople. Bartholomew I is the first hierarch in the Orthodox world. He hinted that he no longer wishes to follow the policy of Moscow in the Ukrainian question and would be ready to facilitate recognition of the Ukrainian Orthodox Churches which had declared independence from Moscow, but are still not recognized by, ecumenical orthodoxy.
Second, those churches which so far were in competition, have finally begun reconciliation and 8 November 03, they signed, in the residence of the Patriarch of Constantinople in Istanbul, agreements consecrating the beginning of this reunification process.
And finally, never before a Ukrainian state Chief had also expressed his clear intention and determination to contribute to the independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
It goes without saying that the road that leads there,  will not be without difficulty. It is not a matter of a few technical procedures.
In any event, the surveys of public opinion show that the vector of identity of most Orthodox believers rather aims Kiev !!! not Moscow ...

ADDRESS OF HIS HOLINESS TO THE U.C.I.D.
F.59 / 85 - Vatican City -
&
STATEMENTS OF A REFUGEE ABOUT MGR BERAN
F.59 / 88 - Trieste -


A refugee from Czechoslovakia, Stanislas Keutsic, related a story - published in the latest issue of Vita Cattolica, Weekly of the Diocese of Trieste - on the disappearance for more than ten years of Monsignor Beran, Archbishop of Prague, who if still alive, would be in his seventieth year. Bishop Joseph Beran was imprisoned as we recall; by the Czechoslovak Communist authorities on June 19, 1949, on Corpus Christi, at the end of a religious ceremony in the Cathedral of Strahev. During the sacred rite, he boldly said, referring to the famous independent Catholics, there is only one truth, one form of Catholicism and the latter is not possible without the Holy Father. At the exit, he was arrested by the police.
Since that day - writes the refugee - the faithful have not heard of their bishop, but his memory remains alive among us, even if for so long he has been forced into silence or were he no longer be alive.
Stanislaus Keutsic’s story continues, referring to the phases of the last meeting of the Archbishop with his people that filled that morning the shot Strahev church.
It may - Archbishop Beran said on this occasion - I preach to you today for the last time; I also want to say that, perhaps, soon you will hear or read - and radio will transmit it day and night to satiety - that I, Archbishop of Prague, I signed an agreement to which I adhere or that I might have approved. Therefore, today, before God and everybody, as bishop I swear I will not sign nor never approve anything that is not consistent with the law of God. I hope you believe me and do not believe what will be  said soon.

What are the differences between Protestants and Catholics (?)


(a simplified overview that originated in a comment column a few years ago)  - Sylvain Bériault

 

Obviously you are all good people, with a heart. It's pretty obvious to me. No doubt about it. Mine will be a debate of technicalities. If you fall asleep, I'll understand since no one has to like me... We are all Christians but do we share the same values or perspective ? And why is it so hard to overcome our differences sometimes. I do not mean try to convert each other and vice-versa (that's pretty dumb) but rather how do we reach Mutual Respect in Dignity and Grace... (?) Because we are not all the same and never will be and that's fine with me (I’m an objective individualist). Mutual Respect is called friendship in my world. And since there is only one Catholic Church and Several Protestant Churches: I will limit myself to the historical perspective and the notions of the first Protestant Church; the Anglican Church of England.
 


So what is THE difference between Catholics and Protestants exactly (?). In fact there are TWO rather severe distinctions that have been exacerbated mostly by the Anglican Church; since it is the one which wanted to differenciate itself.

The First Distinction being a Political Reason and not a matter of Theology at all.... This is what I call a rather severe distinction !!! From the start; the Concept of FAITH is destroyed by the subjugation to the Church’s Clergy itself !!!
The Great Schism occured in the XVII th century but started brewing up as early as the XII th Century (through what was to become the Teutonic Order) and the main actors were later: Henry the VIII - Elizabeth I - and Cromwell (several other actors were involved in this schism of course: Luther - Calvin etc... ) The King desperately wanted Political Power in order to be free of his obligations as a Statesman. You see; God is the Shepherd of the Catholic Church and he has authority on the Souls (God being within you not above you). Henry wanted exclusive power including that of God himself.... Thus the Anglican Church came into existence with a King as shepherd of the souls instead of God. It was a Political Motivitation exclusively not a matter of THEOLOGY at all !!!

 


But our collective story spans over two Milleniums. A brief overview of our common history is essential. All of the Christian World was Catholic from the early First Century until the XVII th Century.  In the early centuries of the first Millenium: the - Universal - Catholic Church encompassed most of what we call the middle-east…. In fact the largest communities were from that region including Semites (until they were each massacred by Islam, to simplify). Turkey (same with Pakistan) was Catholic before the Islamic INVASION and Ukraine was the bastion of Catholicism to the east later recuperated by the Orthodox Church of the Byzantine Empire etc etc ... So there were a lot of Peaceful Catholics massacred on earth !!
All these cultures, tribes, clans, Nations… all lived in harmony under the love, protection and guidance of God.....

 

Let's limit the field now to western Europe in the first millenium. What was to be found there exactly.. Initially the Gauls/Franks occupied what is today Hungary and is roughly considered our birthplace as westerners. Of course the Danes and Swedes played a great ethnic role (ugly roles mostly), but later on in the story. From the start Europe was always divided into east and west (won't digress into this today). The territories to the west of Hungary were empty and offered exceptional resources so they naturally expanded in that area. the basic ethnic communities in those centuries were Gaul/Frank (which later split into Germans and Franks) - Celts - Picts (scots) - Juts - Angls - Dal-Ryada (Irish) and Celt-Iberics (spaniards)… Of course I'm drawing an over simplified picture here as you can well understand.
 

So in the first five centuries the natural and historical geographical territories of Europe are established: just about the same as modern Europe !!! It is just to prove and demonstrate the fact that Westerners were never Conquerers that stole the territories of other existing  groups on the Planet that I mention it: they naturally occupied and established themselves on Virgin Territories !! And during those 5 centuries the Western European Culture of Europe was THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ITSELF regrouping all the communities I mentionned and all were united under GOD !!! Each had their traditions, each had their culture, each had their language, but they all shared one and only FAITH !!! Their faith was their bond and their way of living as peaceful communities, as brothers and friends and YES ALLIES !!!
 


Starting a little before the first Millenium: All the previously mentionned tribes had a huge collective problem... It was the First Roman Pagan Empire and I repeat PAGAN !! There is a popular modern misunderstanding of history  with this specific point and it is very important to understand it, to grasp history as a whole !!! When we say Roman Catholic Church nowadays it refers to the CITY of ROME in which the VATICAN STATE is located. At it's founding the HOLY SEE was located in AVIGNON Gaul/France !!! Never make the horrible mistake of associating the Catholic Church with two PAGAN Empires… That are the First and Second ROMAN EMPIRES. Which technically became the Byzantine Empire... that eventually  converted to JUDAISM... and gave birth to the Orthodox Churches of Constantinople and later the Russian Orthodoxy which is a whole other story altogether....
 


So: five centuries through which several peaceful communities living on their territories were completely conquered by the First Roman PAGAN Empire.... It took five centuries of horrible conflicts to reconquer what was legitimately theirs. It is their Catholic Faith that bonded them all under GOD. Later in the fifth century: the supervision and organizing of charitable Abbeys / Monasteries to link all communities was the role of the Augustinian Regulars or frys. Saint-Augustine's views were largely adopted by most Abbeys throughout Europe; almost at the Churches inception. It was the Order of Preachers O.P. known as the Dominicans. Monks were litterate which was exceptional in those days and had  tremendous social responsabilities and thus the very strict ethics they had to abide to. These Frys and Monks were also Warriors in addition of being part of a charitable Order: Later they were subdivided in Charitable and Military Orders within the Knights Templar (in the Second millenium).
 


There is no academic value in this overly simplified overview but I think it gives the general idea of the history of the Catholic Church - Europe - and Western Culture  which I find fascinating by the way !!!

 

Now about the second severe distinction between Protestants and Catholics.…

Since the Catholic Church's Shepherd is GOD: the Catholic Catechumen does not answer to men but to GOD. This is where the notion of Confession originates... You must understand that a Catholic does not see God as ABOVE him but INSIDE of him (like I do for instance).You see the Catholic does not take his salvation (or going to Heaven) for granted !!! He has to EARN IT in his actions according to GOD's will !!! In Order to admit and recognize his sins... He must confess to God and so logically he can confess to a Priest (secular clergy) - of his own free will - to ascertain his Good Will. However a Catholic Confession (in a Church) is not Mandatory. It is the act of faith in GOD that confirms your faith. That's all it's an act of Faith in God ;;; Not a submissive act to an all powerful Clergy. I hope this clears the misunderstanding most protestatnts have with this !!!
You see by usurpating the authority of GOD by giving it to a MAN. The Anglican Protestant  Church has submitted it's followers to a human authority. It is why Protestants take heaven for granted as long as they profess their faith since GOD ultimately does not grant their redemption... Only their study of scriptures does !!!
