The earthquake at 3:32 pm, on 6 April 2009, was a terrible sign and warning that the more sensitive minds among us felt and took to heart.
The Catholic Church also realised this and acted immediately, with the due urgency and in the manner that such situations require, asking all those who have the fate of humanity at heart, to help the wounded heart of Abbruzzo, struck in the most vital of organs, equally confused as to which cure to administer first. A cure that cannot be solely limited to financial aid in order to reconstruct the many damaged buildings that were struck down by the quake that raised the Gran Sasso mountain by a metre and dried-out an entire lake.

A net of love has been cast around the Basilica of Collemaggio, the ‘great heart’ of Aquila, where a lively, pulsing energy keeps its lacerated body alive, so it might heal its wounds a little at a time, helping it to recover and bring it back to life again.

In an intense intervention at a convention in Rome, organised by the Alba Magica (Magic Dawn) Association, Maria Grazia Lopardi spoke of this net and the widespread common feeling that the era in which we are living is the one foreseen in the ancient prophecies, and that the many other symptoms, including the earthquake, are a clear sign that we have arrived at the advent of the prophesised Era of the Spirit.

We are rapidly getting closer to a time of great change in the equilibrium and our relationships with the world and how it is currently experienced and perceived; changes that are having repercussions on both a physical and psychic plane, with the abandonment of the current vibrational frequency and the state of consciousness connected to the same.

The symbolic bridge that connects the Medieval with our times is becoming less imaginary, and today there is a pontiff who, as he did then, will return to unite these two distant shores.
In medieval times, there was a great supernatural tension on a popular scale, a sort of Messianic pause before the Divine eruption on the human plane, and it was chiefly thanks to the actions of the Franciscans that the signs of total renewal were spotted. This renewal was prophesised by Joachim of Fiore, the Calabrian monk who died in 1202, who predicted the arrival of the Era of the Spirit in 1260. This era, introduced by an angelic pope, which would have seen the corrupt and impure ‘carnal church’, step aside to make way for the Spiritual Church and the community of the faithful illuminati of the spirit, with their bountiful gifts of knowledge and discernment.
When raised to the papal throne in 1294, under the name of Celestine V (Celestine III also acknowledged the order of Joachim of Fiore), Pietro Angeleri, the poor, Molise-born hermit, already considered a living saint, was seen by everyone as the embodiment of the angelic pope of the prophesies. During his brief term as pope, which ended by his own renouncement, because he did not feel that the time was ripe for the Era of the Spirit, he performed revolutionary deeds for his time. One of these, was the fact that he insisted on being crowned in the Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio, one of the only cases in history, with the exception of the Avignon period, and as soon as he took the papal throne he proclaimed a pardon to all those who presented themselves at the Basilica with a reconciled heart. This day, the 29th of August, was the day chosen my Celestine for his coronation, and it also coincides with the symbolic catholic anniversary of the beheading of Saint John the Baptist.

This was the very first Christian Jubilee, an event that all Christians of any race or status could participate in by going to the Basilica and requesting ‘pardon’ for their - nota bene - ‘non-sins’ because they did not need to confess to a priest to receive pardon, penance or plenum indulgence. And, on seeing the success of ‘The Pardon’, where pilgrims could present themselves whenever they desired, without the obligation of giving oboles, as was in use at the time, Boniface VIII maintained the tradition.

Suddenly, with Celestine’s renouncement of the papal thrown, the destruction of the Order of the Temple, and previously the Cathari and the Albigensians, the Inquisition forced the spiritualist monks to flee to the mountains, in the same manner the Fathers of the Church had been driven into the desert, because they did not accept the decision of the First Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D.
This is how the long-awaited Era of the Spirit ended, postponed for more than 700 years, projected towards a humanity capable of gathering the fruits of the seeds that Celestine and the Templars’ had sown, as well and the other preparatory actions made during the great mass.



At the end of the 13th century, the path of several spiritual guides, the last of whom was Pope Celestine V, was interrupted. An eclipse arrived, dissipating the light.
The energy that gave life to the Knights Templar, Catharism, the Albigensians Crusade and the Cistercian movement - who together with the Templars created an incredible amount of new and futuristic cathedrals, bringing a radical change in the current mentality, and hence an incredible impact on the economy and various socio-political aspects of the feudal society, freeing the minds and hearts of the people - was suddenly extinguished.

This religious movement came to life in the early part of the 12th century, in Languedoc in the South of France, with the start of the first crusades. The meeting with Islamic culture, which intrinsically carried the spores of early Christianity – those of the Fathers of the Church, the Gnostics -, led the western Christian community to rediscover a different vision of the relationship with the divine and the manner in which it was practiced; a vision that was not appreciated by the Church of Rome, which was founded and developed on totally conflicting values, and who considered them as pernicious for the centralised power in the hands of the ruling families of Rome, who had transformed the original church into an authentic personal feud, based purely on power and control.

Towards the end of the 13th century, the Roman church - this group of powerful, rich and corrupt people - hastily decided that these two movements had become a threat to their own survival. Their influence on the Christian community was expanding, not only in France but also in Spain and Italy, finding increasingly more enthusiastic converts.
These ‘spores’, which in the eyes of the Roman church were infecting the Christian community and had to be eliminated, just like their influential Gnostic forefathers, the Fathers of the Church, who were forced to disperse themselves in the harsh sandy desert to flee the persecution of the Council of Nicaea. Even in those days, the movement had imposed such radical changes to the way of intending the relationship with the divine, totally excluding a subjective approach, which for the Catholic Church has always been unacceptable and devastating, because it attacks the very foundations of its spiritual and temporal power; a power that it had succeeded in enforcing for centuries, to the point where it imposed the grave sentence of excommunication. In that particular period in history, this weighed heavy for the Christian community, and the church came to the extreme decision of ordering the total annihilation of the condemned and the destruction of these ‘token heretics’, as occurred with the Cathari and the Albigensians, against whom Innocence III organised a crusade, which led to their scientific and unrelenting physical removal.
This brings to mind
the siege of Montségur, in which the last of the Cathari, including old people, children and women, especially if fertile, went under the sword or were burnt alive - after all it was merely the end of many supposed wizards and witches.

Today, six-hundred years from those terrible events it would seem that a spark has ignited once more and that the ashes from those fires have been reignited. A tiny, flickering flame, like the one that you see at concerts, when young people hold their lighters up in the air, making the light dance in the dark, indissolubly connected one to the other when they hear their favourite singer perform the song of their heart.

This song of love, this flickering light that accompanies it, rises towards the sky spreading out in all directions, beyond the ancient wall of this city. Aquila has become the centre of spirituality for humanity once more; the Caput Mundi (Capital of the World), as was intended by its founders who had built it in the image of Jerusalem, dedicating themselves to the calling for centuries and whose conquest cost so many human lives.

Indeed, in 1244, Jerusalem fell definitively into the hands of the infidels, who had also captured Saint Louis, King of France. Jerusalem had lost its central role given to it by Christianity, precisely due to the impossibility of a peaceful coexistence between the many absolutist and incompatible religions. 
The only person who managed to find an accord with the Muslims was Frederick II, who in 1229, in order to fulfil the wishes of the Pope and avoid excommunication, organised the Sixth Crusade, thanks to the good relations he had installed with Elias during his two years stay at the court of the Sultan of Damascus, Malik el Kamel, with whom he became a good friend and confident, as did Frederick II, who used both of his servants to make direct agreements, without bloodshed, during the Sixth Crusade, restoring Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Nazareth.

There are too many coincidences that prove that Francis was not purely the ‘poor man’ of Assisi, that Brother Elias was not merely an excommunicate and that Frederick II was not the ‘Anti-Christ of the Apocalypse’.

In his book, ‘Masonry Franciscanism Alchemy’, Prospero Calzolari rightly noted that the occult knot that binds these three figures is far from being definitively untied, also due to those –as occurred with Celestine V and the Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio – who over the course of history, and with undeniable preparedness, have done all in their power to make manuscripts and documents, including important, consecrated and irreplaceable relics, disappear.

In order to fully comprehend the motives behind the great work of Francis and Elias, which inevitably connected them to Frederick II, it would be necessary to reconstruct the story and the contorted series of events, buried by centuries of obscurantism and the intentional historical camouflaging of one of the most imminent figures in this historic period (this was also affirmed by Dallari in his book "The Drama of Brother Elias”, Milan, 1974). That Brother Elias was a particularly able man, was also suggested by Calzolari in a short essay published by Editrice SeaR, that has vanished from the market, just like the person that had so much influence over the events of the 12th century and who Francis considered “Mother and Father of all his children’.

If he had merely been an ordinary priest, Brother Elias would not have carried out such important and delicate tasks for Saint Francis, becoming his right-hand man.
Nor would he have accepted such an ‘impossible mission’, by going to the court of the sultan in Syria, in order to lay the foundations for a peace agreement, putting an end to the infinite war, as depicted in this picture, created by a photographic agency, which perfectly portrays the spirit that united these two men.


Elias gained the trust of the sultan and obtained a special and unique right-of-way, thanks to the good relationship that had grown between them during his two-year sojourn at the sultan’s court, becoming his close friend and confident, just as Frederick II had done before him, using his servants to help him make direct agreements, during the Sixth Crusade, which subsequently ended in 1229, without bloodshed (see previous part of this site). In a well-known biography on Saint Francis published by Rizzoli in 1984, the French historian, Julien (Milano, Rizzoli, 1984) did not hesitate in posing the hypothesis that "Malik al-Kamil gave Jerusalem back to Frederick II, probably won over by the ideas of the poor man".

The same considerations are made with regard to the work of Celestine and his close ties with the Order of the Temple, which he kept alive for a good twenty years. A relationship that began in 1274, in Leon - which led to the decision to finance the construction of the Basilica of Collemaggio in 1275 – until he rose to the papal throne in 1294, assuming the role of the first Templar Pope, making the Templar ideas and ‘dream of universal peace’ his own; a dream founded on an intense and reciprocal understanding between the opposing forces of Islam, Christianity and the Hebrew faith. 



The very same modern world vision expressed by Martin Luther King in his famous speech "I have a dream", was also expressed at the beginning of the 12th century by Frederick II, Saint Francis and Brother Elias: a Utopian civilisation where different races, religions and philosophies live side-by-side, or in more contemporary terms, the intuition of being able to bloodlessly put an end to the invincible antagonism between Islamic and Christian society. This was demonstrated by his visit to Syria and Palestine, where they were the only ones to be accepted as Christians and made agreements with one of Christianity’s most bitter enemies.
It appears that the time of waiting is almost over. With the advent of the Age of Aquarius, we are once again getting ready for total change. The message of pardon of the Hermit Pope and the Templars’ knowledge about the matter becoming spiritual are a valuable heritage we must cherish.

It would seem that the long wait is coming to an end and with the advent of the Age of Aquarius, we are preparing for another complete change, and the message conveyed by the hermit-Pope’s ‘Pardon’ and the Templar’s knowledge of the spiritualisation of the material world becomes a precious inheritance that must be seized.

What has been ‘veiled’ for centuries has been ‘revealed’, to be ‘re-veiled’ yet again.

Indeed, a potent energy has shaken the Earth, the frequency of which is increasing, as revealed by many experts; the Earth’s magnetism, which connects us to the third dimension is diminishing, providing for a great opportunity to "rise again" (i.e. to change vibrational frequency), and everyone reacts according to the preparation they have received from life, returning, like many centuries before, to those ancient, sacred places, marked by the gothic cathedrals and megalithic monuments, or sites of scared importance such as Santa Maria di Collemaggio. This is because we realise, or more precisely, we ‘feel’ that these places are reactivating to create a portal between the heavens and the Earth; an intermediate Earth where the subjection to black and which light, celestial and telluric energy prepares the body and initiates our planet.


And the Vatican is perfectly aware of this epochal change and the importance that the city of Aquila and the figure of Pope Celestine V, the ‘Pope of Great Refusal’ are beginning to have on a worldwide scale. A Pope who has been too inconvenient for centuries, a ‘Christian without a church’, or better still ‘ a Christian of all churches’, who opened his heart to believers of any faith, creed and above all colour; to all peoples who were unpopular or not accepted by the constitutional powers or the Church of Rome. And he did so with the same attitude and mental openness demonstrated by the Templars, who so inspired Celestine, during the many crusades ordered by the various popes, who succeeded to power, freeing Jerusalem (at the time considered the spiritual centre of Christianity), taking it away from the non-believers.

Indeed, once the city was conquered they proved themselves to have a profound respect for the people who were considered ‘infidels without faith’ by the Church of Rome, allowing the Emir Usama to pray to Allah in their Mother Church, which was nothing more than the old Mosque of Al Aqsa, built upon the ruins of Solomon’s Temple, which they defended from any Christians who dared to stop them.

That temple, constructed on the ruins of Solomon’s temple, was a sacred place dedicated to the God of the Jews and the Muslims. It did not belong to the people who momentarily possessed it; it had to remain a place in which it was always possible for people of any faith to enter into dialogue with their own God, without intermediaries, because the means for praying to god can be replaced, but the place where to do so cannot.

That Temple, built on the ruins of Solomon’s Temple, was a sacred place dedicated to the God of the Jews and the Muslims. It did not belong to the people who momentarily possessed it; it had to remain a place where people of all faiths could always dialogue with their own God, without intermediaries. Actually, the ways and times to worship God can be replaced, but the place where to do so cannot. Especially so, when it has been sanctified and attuned to cosmic energy. No matter who has turned it into a ritually holy place, by now it has become an irreplaceable instrument played to follow the rhythms and tones of the music of the spheres.

This respect for the faith of an ‘arch-enemy’ is also mirrored in the Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio, erected by Celestine V and the Templars with the same universal spirit.
Anyone of any rank or race, faith or belief could go to Aquila – the new centre of Ecclesia Spiritualis- whenever they could and wished, with the knowledge of the bad deeds or bitterness in their hearts, and be forgiven for the errors of their ways without having to confess to a priest, in order to be granted forgiveness and penitence, as occurs in Catholic ritual, because Holy Communion’ was not necessary.

The pilgrims ‘forgave themselves, but they had to do so in an absolute, unsuperficial, sincere and penitent manner, making a promise to themselves, and themselves only, not to repeat the same errors again.

Only they could decide what was right or wrong, as it is only their own values and principles that can serve as their guide, just as the ‘real’ Masons believe, the direct heirs of the elected body of the Templars, which imposed, to those who decided to take part, a high level of morality and respect for faith, even for the most bitter of enemies, and a body prepared to face often sub-human tests.

A Muslim or believer of another religion had the right to access any temple dedicated to the ‘Great Architect’ of the universe.


Because these temples were perfect musical instruments of stone, tuned to favour the flow of energy within the body, freed from the accumulated negative energy by the ceremony of the pardon, making every cell of those who enter with an ‘open heart’ vibrate in unison with the music of the stars, as they did in the story by Eddy Seferian.

A perfect, working, state-of-the-art spiritual and psychic energy centre was built at Collemaggio. This natural stone circuit was also designed on the floor. And, although it may sound incredible and paradoxical, it works like a classic electrical circuit in every right, transferring its energy to all those who follow the path traced upon the floor, stimulating their nervous system and circulation. 
The materials and the designs are different to those used in modern electrical appliances, but the particular arrangement of the white and red stones effectively reproduces an electromagnetic circuit that releases electromagnetic energy. The effect is identical, if not better, for those who are able to perceive it, as many sensitives can, one of whom is Eddy Seferian, an Armenian psychic, who describes the impressions and sensations he felt in a chapter of his book.

Through her many books and conferences, Maria Grazia Lopardi, State Lawyer of Aquila, has provided us with an interpretational key of Sator and the meaning of these secret symbols hidden in the stones, passing down the encrypted teachings left to us by Celestine and the Templars, the key creators of these sacred places that prepare us for the passage from the visible to the invisible world.



Indeed, at the ‘Notre Dame of Collemaggio’, paraphrasing a name chosen by the two authors, a heliocentric system, capable of functioning as well as any modern superconductor – was devised to transmit millions of fragments of data and images at the speed of light, concentrating the bio-psychic energies of those who intend to proceed on the path to interior exploration, helping them to progressively free themselves from the blocks that hold them back.

Many psychics have confirmed Maria Grazia’s deductions and conclusions. Among the many accounts, it is worth mentioning the experience of Eddy Seferian, who like other seers throughout the ages, ‘sees and feels’ entities with whom he can exchange messages, sensations and direct extra-sensorial experiences. Eddy has reached and perfected this psychophysical state and has bestowed us with the gift of telling us about these meetings and messages in a book entitled “The Great Work and Soul”.

In 2007 he went to Aquila and saw the Basilica of Collemaggio for the very first time, retracing the ancient initiation path, crossing portal after portal. This ‘energy bridge’, devised by Celestine V, is rendered operative with the help of expert Master Templars, bearers of profound knowledge of sacred geometry, numerology, astrology, alchemy and astronomy.
It was here that he met Maria Grazia Lopardi.

Whilst telling us of his experiences between the 25th and 26th of September 2007, Eddy led us by the hand through the seven portals marked on the floor, showing us how to reactivate and enhance our energy centres one by one, until we reach the eighth level and enter into contact with the primordial energy. I have been close to him many times during his travels, accompanying him on other initiation paths, such as in India and Argentina on the Aconcagua mountain, and considering this site with the very same love, I have become the promoter of this initiative to support Aquila and the Basilica of Collemaggio, where I have had some of my most profound experiences, as my story will tell you.
There are a myriad of dimensional doorways on our planet, places that allow us to access the more subtle planes that are often invisible to most people. 
The heart of Templarism is still sending us messages today that only the initiation tradition knows how to convey, but unfortunately they are not understood and practiced in modern Freemasonry, which is no longer capable, how it should be by its tradition, to melt into a ‘single energetic corpus’, who through special personal training in all of the three distinct levels, become ‘men of knowledge’.

In an article on
Masonic initiation, a brother explained the reasons for working in ‘consecrated temples very clearly.
"The moment in which one opens oneself to any ceremony of a significantly spiritual, sacrificial and esoteric nature, a new temporal dimension is opened, or more precisely a temporal destination, because the time of the ritual is no longer the one outside of us. In the same manner that vulgar space has been deconstructed, time itself has taken, or better still, has been given a new direction, maybe many directions, it can even come to a standstill.”

Very few brothers actually realise that in the small rooms of their Masonic temples, marked with the very same symbols, that a little Collemaggio has been reproduced; a micro-energetic centre, filled with ‘ cosmic love’, that rotates both clock-wise and anti-clockwise, precisely like the labyrinth of the three eights, favouring the meeting and energetic exchange between the positive and negative poles that each individual (male and female) holds within them – although in inversed roles.

And because modern-day Masons do not realise this, the people of Aquila, who also love their church, realise even less. For deep down they have never truly understood the peculiarity of the Basilica of Collemaggio, which has not been purely ignored for centuries, but intentionally put on ‘stand-by’, or better still, to use a musical metaphor, has been ‘muted’.

Indeed, this potent and unique accelerator of human cells - devised to allow anyone who desired to purify their body and spirit (see The Pardon) and receive this special and extremely powerful cosmic energy - has been deliberately switched off.

- Until the 70s the roof was lower; the octagonal columns had been covered up; the labyrinth had been dismantled and partially covered by Baroque decorations, which also adorn the looming columns.
- In 2006, on publication of the book by M.G. Lopardi and M. Proclamato on ‘
The Secret of the Three Eights Octaves’, an attempt was made to cover the three >888 < and the seventh field with wooden panels.
- Until 6 April 2009 at 3:32 am, the
‘888’ symbol had been intentionally hidden by the pews of the churchgoers.
- Access to the underground river has been blocked and hidden so that no one can go there to gather its pure water, which on analysis, seems to possess the same energetic and curative properties as the waters of Lourdes and Medjugorie.



-
The secret of the Triple 8 symbol, aimed at transforming the square of matter into the circle of the spirit’, has remained, as in many gothic cathedrals, deliberately hidden and forgotten in the stone.



The efforts of the architect, M. Moretti, Head of Fine Arts, were also in vain. It took him until 1970 to restore the ceiling and the columns, returning them to their original ‘octagonal shape’, but he never succeeded in proceeding with the restructuring and restoration of the original medieval structure, with the intention of also eliminating the newer Baroque structure in the naves and around the altar. In fact, he was stopped and forced to resign, becoming the object of atrocious and unjustified criticism for what he had done, and he died broken hearted. The only satisfaction after his death was a token publication in a book for visitors (Luigi Lopez: Celestine V. and G. Tazzi - Aquila) ,which mentions his intervention and features a black and white photograph of the aisle before and after it was restored. 

It is thanks to just a small handful of Aquilian people and in particular, more recently, Maria Grazia Lopardi, that the light that has been intentionally turned off for centuries, has been lit again, moving us to dedicate this web site to:

- the twin brother of Saint Francis, Saint Celestine, portrayed with the Franciscan habit, in memory of the act of humility and faith of Celestine, who refused the ‘political church’ in favour of a higher spirituality.

- alla
Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio.

We are sending an SOS to all the people of Collemaggio, so that they might adopt and make the Basilica a Great Tepee once more. A place where it is always possible, for anyone of any faith or creed to dialogue directly with their own God, because you can replace the means with which to pray to God, but not the place where to do so - if this place, as Celestine desired, was built for the God of all races and religions.



The plenary pardon, conceded every year on the 29th of August was and is indeed intended for all, without distinction of faith or beliefs. The papal bull was entrusted to the authorities who every jubilee must invite the bishop and their clergy to participate in the opening ceremony of the ‘Sacred Door’, which must be carried out by the Lord Mayor (the only person who has the authority to do so) after the reading of the papal bull.


But this chapter cannot end without making a number of considerations that I came to during the presentation of the "The Great Work", which mentions some of my experiences with Eddy in India:

"I have walked alongside Eddy, for centuries and I have travelled thousands of miles in every direction, but in reality they were but a few centimetres towards my own heart”.

Eddy arrived some time ago and, like all sages, he returns to show us the way.

Eddy’s story shows us the right path, and for those who can read between the lines, he also shows us the methods and the instruments we need to use. I hope that the spark of light will also ignite within you, making you change your way of thinking and feeling. And for those who ‘see’ and ‘feel’, like Eddy, this is not some fantastical tale but the meeting of ‘two hearts’, between two ‘reporters’, one bound to the Earth the other bound to the sky. It is the account of an experience that has allowed, after 700 years, for two shores to be reunited, reopening the way to the ‘bridge of light, built by the future pontiff, Celestine V, for the people of Aquila. Pontiff, “facere pontem, build us a bridge to favour the meeting between sky and Earth and guarantee and maintain the ‘Peace of the Gods’ (la pax deorum).
And maybe, it is not by chance that ‘a new door’ was opened on the 6th of April: for the Romans it was the person who had the duty to build



“a passageway towards the starry sky, in which the spirit of Celestine materialised for a brief moment, returning to breathe in unison with his city, and he smiled.
