Veneration Of The Blood

More wonders from the church of Rome.

From the Guardian, we get this headline.

Pope John Paul's blood to go on display at Vatican

Blood will be available for veneration at John Paul II's beatification
after being taken from pontiff as he lay dying

"A phial filled with the blood of the late pope John Paul II will go on display at his beatification on Sunday and become available for veneration by the faithful.
The Vatican said the blood, which had been stored in a Rome hospital, had been kept in a liquid state by an anti-coagulant that was added when it was taken from him.
The Polish pontiff is to be beatified at a service celebrated by his successor, Benedict XVI. More than 50 heads of state and several hundred thousand pilgrims are expected in Rome for the occasion."     
More than 50 heads of state will attend??

Papal Beatification Party Treats?

I'm wondering about HEADS OF STATE that would participate in this blood worship ceremony! Maybe this is why our world is in a constant state of war, man-made famine and designer diseases.

Power in the blood is an ancient theme, echoed throughout history and religions. Blood sacrifice, blood money, bloodlines, pureblood, etc.

The fascination of blood by the temporal powers of this world leads one to believe that there is something to be gained from blood, or more specifically........the shedding of blood. This would explain why the Elites of this generation are so consumed with population reduction. The Club of Rome is an  interesting group that ties in nicely with the Church of Rome.

What is this power from blood? Even the common people seek this power as demonstrated by the exponential rise in homicides and bloodletting in even the safest suburbs. Just try to find a front page of a newspaper that is not trumpeting yet another homicidal spree!

The legends of vampires ties into this power of blood theme also.....from Wikipedia,

Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures and in spite of speculation by literary historian Brian Frost that the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself", and may go back to "prehistoric times",[7] the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe,[8] although local variants were also known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania. This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism.

While even folkloric vampires of the Balkans and Eastern Europe had a wide range of appearance ranging from nearly human to bloated rotting corpses, it was the success of John Polidori's 1819 novella The Vampyre that established the archetype of charismatic and sophisticated vampire; it is arguably the most influential vampire work of the early 19th century,[9] inspiring such works as Varney the Vampire and eventually Dracula.[10]

However, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel and which provided the basis of modern vampire fiction. Dracula drew on earlier mythologies of werewolves and similar legendary demons and "was to voice the anxieties of an age", and the "fears of late Victorian patriarchy".[11] The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, video games, and television shows. The vampire is such a dominant figure in the horror genre that literary historian Susan Sellers places the current vampire myth in the "comparative safety of nightmare fantasy".[11]
From tvtropes comes this...

The Power Of Blood

"For the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood by the soul in it. Consequently I said to the sons of Israel: 'You must not eat the blood of any sort of flesh, because the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood. Anyone eating it will be cut off.'" — God, Leviticus 17:14

"Blood is life, lackbrain. Why do you think we eat it? It's what keeps you going. Makes you warm. Makes you hard. Makes you other than dead." — Spike, a vampire from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer

Blood. Animals have it, humans have it, even aliens have it. There's just something about the red liquid that flows through our veins that makes it seem important. Probably something to do with that whole... "keeping us alive" thing it does so well. As such, in fiction, it tends to have one or more of these properties.

• A) Blood is Binding — Any Magically Binding Contracts made in blood must be honored, on pain of death, even if the contract was only written in blood because you Couldn't Find A Pen. If you make a Blood Oath, and swear that "if you break your word, may the earth drink your blood!", and break your word anyway, you may find yourself six feet under.

• B) Blood is symbolic — Blood may be used as a stand-in, or weaker form of souls, life force, what have you. Alternatively, other things may be used to symbolize it. The latter applies to things like an android's oil being sprayed out like it's High Pressure Blood. ◦ For examples of the latter, see Alien Blood or Symbolic Blood.

• AB) Blood is magical — Any spells that require blood as a reagent will probably be either extremely powerful, Black Magic, or both. Since blood is basically Life Force, anything using it will work similarly to things Cast From HP. The blood of especially powerful or arcane creatures may even become gems.

• O) Most importantly, Blood is disturbing — There's just something about blood leaving the body that generally freaks people out, either from fear or disgust. For obvious reasons, it's directly associated with pain, injury and death. Horror and Slasher stories rely on this. A further division of this, often connected to A, B, or AB, are messages written in blood, which are used primarily to scare the bejeezus out of people, but may also have magical, symbolic, or binding properties. This is sometimes combined with Room Full Of Crazy for the extra creepy. Properly used, blood can turn fear into Primal Fear - as per the shower scene in Psycho: the sight of Janet Leigh's hand trailing slowly down the shower curtain - scary. The blood (actually just chocolate syrup) smearing under her fingers - PSYCHO! Many movies overdo this, resulting in mere Squick - Silent Hill pours on the tension until your heart threatens to explode from your chest - scary. Then Pyramid Head shows up and tears the skin from a woman in a single tug - not that scary, just your basic Gorn.
Anyway.........just some food for thought (pun intended)!

Kudos this is a herculean effort here AVOPs. I am going to link it in the comment section. Such efforts should be recognized. I will have more on this later, I have to eat now.

There is background to the "life is in the blood" concept. In fact Jesus said the same. The Masai in Africa are known to ride a cow andstick a bamboo straw in their neck veins and drink the blood. They are one of the healthiest specimens in Africa. I think Jesus though was referring to building the blood with the herbs of the field something most of us do fine on without blood.

Then of course we have the vaunted cohan gene that is supposed to be Davidic. I think the last line of the Jesus bloodline, Mary queen of Scots had her head chopped off by Lizzie Battenberg's relatives.

Anyway more on the blood group deal.

Recent DNA researches on Y-chromosome showed that about 40 % of the Japanese have DNA of haplogroup D. Y-chromosome DNA is passed from father to son, and is classified according to genetic features into genetic groups called “haplogroups” from A to T. Only Japanese and Tibetan peoples in the world have haplogroup D at a high frequency. D is rarely found even among the Chinese and Koreans.

According to geneticists, haplogroup D is the compatriot of haplogroup E, which is found in all Jewish groups of the world. Haplogroups D and E were once one and have the common origin, as Wikipedia encyclopedia states:
“Along with haplogroup E, D contains the distinctive YAP polymorphism, which indicates their common ancestry.” [Haplogroup D (Y-DNA)]

According to Family Tree DNA, a DNA test provider, especially E1b1b1 type of haplogroup E is “found in all Jewish populations, from Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Kurdish, Yemen, Samaritan and even among Djerba Jewish groups.” They use this genetic marker to find Jewish descendants.

That is about all I can get in the block. This is covered in my treatise... on Alessandro Magno (the great one)

I just added you to my top menu, trusted sources of the black hand! ;) You seem to delve into areas that are of interest. This is no small matter as there is so much script unraveling to outside feeds it takes about 10 minutes to add one.

Wow DM! Thank you for the honor! I am humbled...

I cannot get past the 50 Heads of State thing. I'm stuck in overload to even comprehend such... I don't have the words of expression. THANKS

Have you seen this one? Speaking of bloodlines, they truly must have parties and laugh at us.
