Pope Saint Pius VII and General Napoleon Bonaparte

General Napoleon Bonaparte was born on August 15, 1769, Feast of the Assumption. This fact would lead one to believe that in his life, Napoleon would hold the Blessed Virgin highly, however, throughout his life Napoleon did not exhibit any devotion to the Blessed Mother. On the contrary he was probably initiated in Freemasonry on June 12-19, 1798, into the Army Philadelphe Lodge, in Malta. His Masonic membership is disputed, however, as a sure fact Napoleon Bonaparte was the protector of Freemasonry and experienced at least one ‘dark’ supernatural episode, whilst visiting the ancient pyramids at Giza, Egypt. When the Duke of Orleans died, Freemasonry in France needed a Grandmaster. They invited General Bonaparte to fill this post, the General demanded: “…a memoir on the objects and principles of the association.” The memoir presented explained that, since the burning at the stake of Jacques de Molay, Grandmaster of the Knights Templars, the: “… vengeance alluded to in the Elu degrees and in Kadosh was that which the Templars formerly swore to execute upon King Philip the Fair, the destroyer of the Order, and upon his successors, but this vengeance was accomplished by the accession of Napoleon to the imperial throne.” Napoleon nominated his brother, the King of Spain, as Grandmaster and invited many both in the military and government officials to join the Craft. Thus, the power of Freemasonry grew much. Not that the Craft needed further power and influence, for the sect had already succeeded at bringing about the French Revolution. The French authorities had indeed already carried out their antichristian persecution of the religious houses, blaming the cleric’s unswerving loyalty to the Pope. French Kings Louis XVI and his son Louis XVII, were assassinated during the ‘Reign of Terror,’ and the Masonic pledge of vengeance upon the descendents of King Philip the Fair, against Monarchy and Religion, had been accomplished in the foulest of ways.

In 1796, the French Army crossed the Alps into Italy. The intention was to march on Rome, conquer the ancient city of the Empire and take hostage the Pope; this sounded like a perfect plan for the child of the enlightenment, the French Masonic General Bonaparte. Nevertheless, Napoleon had not considered the fine details, such as the fact that the Blessed Virgin, the protector of the Roman Pontiff and the Church of Jesus Christ, was about to pit her supernatural strength and favor before the Lord, against the earthly powers and their gods of illuminism, science, war and reason.  (more...)
