Sunday Respite – Honoring the Knights Templar

(Before It's News)

This is the week we honor the Knights Templar. In 2007 the Vatican issued a proclamation declaring the Templars innocent of their alleged crimes. This after finding “misplaced” documents of their trials.

How different our world would be if this act had not been perpetrated against the Templars, the defenders of Christ. It is worthy of us to honor them each October. May they rise again.

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

The Knights Templar set to an instrumental entitled ‘Lament’
The track is from Saracen’s album Vox in Excelso,a concept album involving The Knights Templar

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

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

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