The Virgin and the Pentacle

The Virgin and the Pentacle – The Freemasonic Plot to Destroy the Church by Alan Butler, published by O Books, paperback 192 pages £12.99 

This book opens with describing the vision of the Madonna at La Salette, France, on 19th September 1846 when two illiterate children (a 14 year old girl and an eleven year old boy) delivered to the church authorities a message of great criticism. The date was strategic as it was the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (which takes place in the sun sign of Virgo, that of the Virgin). On this date, the planets were aligned in such a way as to be very extraordinary and the place also was very interesting. There are ancient lines throughout France known as ‘salt lines’ often ending in ‘al’ or ‘hal’ meaning ‘salt’. La Salette is on one of these ancient lines. It is stated that when many of the Knights Templar escaped when their order was persecuted, they arrived in Switzerland, Portugal, Scotland and perhaps America, and taking with them their secrets, such as the honouring of Mary as a symbol of Isis, the ancient goddess. The KT had connections to the great Cistercian abbeys, created by St Bernard and possibly they had connections to the Essene Brotherhood which were thought to have influenced Jesus and John the Baptist. 

The author, Alan Butler, is an expert in this exciting field of research, and in this well written book, he presents exceptional and convincing arguments that there are wonderful co-incidences and connections that reveal a thread of secret knowledge which has been passed down through the ages via the Knights Templar to the Freemasons. These 'heretical' organisations retained a reverence for Mary, the Queen of Heaven. An amazing astrological configuration at the time of the vision of La Salette has a relationship to the French Revolution and the Independence of the United States of America! Who would have thought that Calvin and Martin Luther, both of whom launched the huge rift with the Roman Church that brought about Protestantism, honoured the divine feminine!  I thought this was an amazing, enjoyable and exciting book which holds some special treasures.
