CHAPTER TWENTY FIVE
The Monarch Retires,
Peter the II Elected
Philip was sad. His job was finished and now he wanted to
retire and prepare for death. He said
goodbye to the Holy Father and Merlin and went to talk with his wife and
Philip: “Sofia, maybe I was doing
God’s will but I was the instrument of the death of many people. I feel great guilt and sadness about
this. I need to do something to ease my
conscience about these deaths.”
Empress Sofia: “We
are antiques now, with nothing left to do.
But we have accepted the work that we did not want to do, and became
clay in God’s hands and you should feel good about that. What are you trying to say to me?”
Philip: “It is time
for us to give up our titles of Emperor and Empress. It is time to give up all power and live in
Sofia: “This is not anything that I ever wanted. I just wanted to be a wife and mother. I have been a mother but seldom a wife. Yes! I too want to spend more time in prayer
and less with people. We have good
children and they also need more family time and less public time.”
Philip: “There is no
person that I know of that can take over without me worrying about too much
power in the hands of one person.”
Sofia: “Your authority is people’s faith in you and
not in laws. People look to you to solve
problems but you have no real legal authority, just trust.”
Philip: “That is
true! If I disappear, where do people go to solve problems in their different
countries? We cannot have another United
Sofia: “Divide the world into ten or twelve
districts. Each having a outside judge to solve national disputes. Not someone with legal power but people that
the majority trusts because they have no power and (like you) have no reason to
Philip: “I want to
leave all this luxury in Austria
and go to Jerusalem
and live in poverty. Would you go with
me to the foot of Calvary and live the simple
life, a life of ---- maybe a farmer or Shepard?”
Sofia: “I could not think of anything more perfect,
good for me, for our children, for you, and for our souls. Let us do it.”
Philip and Sofia took their children and moved to Nazareth in a small stone
house. Before leaving he gave his
authority as Emperor of the World to ten Kings, Kings without countries. These ten men became judges of ten sections
of the world and to them he gave the wealth of Solomon’s treasure to help all
their countries in whatsoever they needed.
The Knights were divided into these ten regions to enforce the
democratic laws of the nations.
Philip went to Calvary. With Sofia and his children behind him, he
placed his crown (the crown of St. Steven) at the spot of Calvary. The family went to their home in Nazareth, bought sheep and
lived a life of prayer and sacrifice.
They had five more children. After ten years of prayer in the Holy Land
Philip laid his head down and went to the Lord.
Benedict went back to Rome
and organized the completion of the repairs on St. Peter’s Basilica. It was now the twelfth year of peace and the
eighteenth year of his pontificate. He was now almost 90 years of age.
St. Peter’s was back to its former beauty and the Holy
Father called all the Cardinals of the world to come to Rome.
He knew he would never see them but he wanted them in Rome for a quick election. Pope Benedict laid his head against the glass
in front of St. Peter’s tomb and died.
All the Cardinals arrived in Rome
within a few days of Pope Benedict’s death not even knowing why they were
called to Rome. Under the great frescos of Michelangelo’s
Sistine Chapel they elected a very young priest as Pope. He was not even a bishop. They ordained him Bishop and Pope on the same
day. He was asked what name he would
select as pope.
The New Holy Father answered: “Peter, the Second!”
At 107 years of age, Merlin died. At the moment of his death a baby was born.
On the tenth year of peace lived a prostitute in a tent at
the mouth of the two great rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates.
Her name was Diana. She was steeped in
the practice of witchcraft and black arts.
She attracted many with her beauty, seductive clothes and magical arts.
She was Jewish from the tribe of Dan and to conceal her background took the
name, Eva. Often she held parties that included drugs, alcohol and great feasts
of many types of foods. These always
ended in ritualistic orgies of sex with many women and men at the same
time. The sacrificial killing and
burning of children in Black Masses was common.
She often picked up and moved to keep away from being too known and kept
with her 12 girls for the orgies.
Then suddenly she quit all activity and went farther into
the desert to be alone. After months
living by herself in the tent, she gave birth to a
baby boy without the help of a mid-woman or anyone else. The baby did not cry
but simply looked at her with open large black eyes. He already had teeth and a full head of hair.
After only a few moments from birth the new baby smiled and
spoke in a deep voice: “I am.
I am here! I live!”
