(Now you understand what is meant by "Hidden in Plain Sight"!!!)

On this Study Page we will look at some of the other Holidays that The Catholic Church has been instrumental in pushing upon the world Psyche. Yes, both consciously and "subconsciously"!

The reason that I mention the terms Consciously and Subconsciously, is because the following holidays ("Holy-days") established by the Catholic Church, have been set up to affect mankind (both religious and secular).

   Consciously : Because people see things that are associated with it. Stuff that some people in the Messianic Community have termed as being Hidden in Plain Sight.

   And Subconsciously : Because there are many things that are associated with these holidays that are at work in the minds of Men and Women, at a subliminal level. And can also be termed as being Hidden in Plain Sight.

   This is because haShatan (Satan) works at all levels in order to distract and turn away mankind from the True Understanding, and the True Worship of YaHuWaH 'El Shaddai !

   Besides the RCC (Mystery Babylon the Great [and Her Harlot Offspring); This also includes all of the other 'False Pagan Religions' that were scattered around the Globe since the collapse and dispersment of the peoples from the original Babylon (approx. 400 years after the flood).

SO...

   Let's take a look at all the religious type or style of Holidays that are celebrated by both the Secular and Religious communities, around the World [in calendar/cronological order] :

       1. Epiphany : This holiday is celebrated on the 6th of January (and begins the MARDI GRAS Festival in Louisianna [and we all know that Mardi Gras is full of all kinds of Pagan Parties, Drunkeness and Sexual Imorality in a very wide variety of forms and fashions].

   And yet there is an even more important ritual that is associated with this "Holi-day", that was instituted by the Catholic Church; and is followed even by the Protestant churches. It is known as the "Epiphany Star" procession (or parade). Let's take a look at some of these forms of Veneration and Worship of the "STAR" of Epiphany. This "STAR" is supposed to be the "STAR" that led the Magi to Herod. Furthermore, this veneration of the "STAR" becomes worship of the creation (the star), and not the Creator !

And remember that these false forms of Worship are always taught to the Children so that they can pass these Pagan Rituals onto their children!

 

Remember, that the Catholic Church pushes Veneration and Worship of this "Star"!

    Ok, let us go on to the next Holiday that the World follows after.

       2. Valentines Day : This Holi-day is another major money maker for the "Merchants of the Earth" as it is observed by both the Church and Secular society. There is so much that is associated with this day. I will give you a considerable amount of info on this, but you can research this for even more than what I can place on this site.

   First of all, it goes back to the Catholic Church, which states that it is a memorial to at least 3 Saints named either Valentine or Valentinus. During the time of Emperor Claudius Ceaser ll (who stated that unmarried young men made better soldiers than married men), it is said that this "Valentine/Valentinus" person (which ever one of the "three" he might have been, if he even ever existed) married young men to young maidens to help keep the men from having to serve in the Roman Military.

   Whatever the reason for this Valentine/Valentinus being made a "Saint", it is even more interesting to note that the "Catholic Church" instituted the Feast Day/Holi-day of St. Valentines day during the Pagan holiday of Lupercalia.

   Lupercalia was observed on the ides of February (Feb 15th). This Pagan festival was to honor the fertility goddess Faunus, as well as the she-wolf Lupa, who is said to have raised and nurtured Romulus and Remus (the founders of Rome). The Roman "Priests" of this festival use to sacrifice a goat (for fertility) and a dog (for purification), then the priests would cut strips of hide from the goat, dip the strips in the 'mixed' blood of the sacrifice and then go about through the streets and slap the strips of bloody hides on the young maidens. The women did not mind this ritual as they were led to believe that it made them more "Fertile". After being slapped with the bloody strips, the maidens would throw their names "written on pieces of paper" into a big urn. Then the young men would pick out a piece of paper and then be "Mated" with the maiden whose name was written on it (hence the origin of the Valentine Card thing). No dinner and a movie, just pick a name and off to fornicate. Sometimes even in public.

   Lupercalia survived the rise of "Christianity" and was absorbed by and into the Catholic Church, and renamed St. Valentine's Day by Pope Gelasius around the end of the 5th Century A.D.; and he made the 14th of February, the day of its observance [just one day difference from the pagan Lupercalia].

   It's amazing just how the Catholic Church was able to change this Pagan Feast-day into a "Christian" Holy-day, just by giving it a christian sounding name with the title "Saint" attached to it !

   But what else has come from Pagan sources, into this Pagan holiday, with its Pagan rituals; yet adopted by the un-holy "Roman Catholic Church" ! 

       First...

   Let us look at the Iconography of "The Heart".

        In the city/state of Cyrene there was a plant (now extinct) known as the Silphium. This plant and its seed pod was used as a means of "birth control", as orgies and other rampant sexual behaviors necessitated its over use (which accounts for it now being an extinct species). Anyway, it had a seed pod with a very unique shape. It was rare even in the 7th century B.C., and as a result was commemorated on a coin of the same time period. [See Cyrenian coin below]

This heart shape symbol has been associated with sex and fertility because it is said that the soft round shape resembles the female body. First, the Pagan Cyrenians thought that it resembled not only the female pubic mound; but also the females pair of plump, firm breasts. And also the female buttocks.

   But how was it further developed into what we have been taught and raised with ?

       Yes, the Catholic Church again. They adopted it into one of their most important ritual forms of Worship. So now we get to look at how the "Catholic Church" incorporated it into the common human psyche, over the centuries.

    P.S. Notice the Right Hand sign gestures !!

  This one intrigues me. He is holding his own heart ?!  Hmmm !!

It went from just a heart shape, to one with a cross sticking out of the top of it !!

   

I must remind you of this specific shape of the "Heart" as illustraed by the Catholic Church !

   How about the Heart with an Arrow shot through it ?

  I'm not sure, but it looks as though this little fellow is giving a well known hand signal/gesture with that thumb against his nose !

   YES, how did the Arrow get mixed up in this "Symbol" ?

   Well, this goes all the way back to... Yes you guessed it : Ancient Babylon !

 The Ancient Babylonian symbol for the "Male" is this :

    The circle with points radiating from it.

It later became illustrated as the following:

Later styles are as follows...

 Although it has a square instead of a circle, it still has a point coming out of it !

 A cave drawing

 A Renaissance illustration (even has the Bow incorporated into it)

All the way down to our more contemporary style

  Anyway, the Arrow portion eventually became a part of the Heart Iconography.

   

  Besides the Candy thing, Jewlry is a BIG Ticket expenditure item on this Holiday ! (Rev 18:3)

   But Candy is still a major Money draw from Children to Adults !

   But let's get back to the Arrow through the Heart thing...

  And how "Cupid" figures into the mix.

   That's right, it also goes all the way back to Babylon and Nimrod. The Mighty Hunter against YaHuWaH (Gen 10:9). If you do some serious research regarding this Nimrod person. You will discover that the reason he was so Tagged in the Scriptures was because he was a "Hunter" for the hearts and souls of men, in order to draw mankind away, in rebelion against Shaddai 'El YaHuWaH !

   So, with the help of his mother Semiramis. He was elevated to the level of being "a God". And since the use of the Ancient Pagan Horoscope thing known as the Zodiac (has the same root from where we get "ZOO"). Nimrod in his Pagan glorified state has become known by many names [before being nicknamed "Cupid"]. Here is a short list of names in which you may find several to be familiar. (in Cronological Order)

 Practice, practice, practice .

  What...

No Bow? Just force yourself upon them, and then Stab them with the Arrow !!

      

Ok, enough with the Valentines Day, Ritual Practice, Heathen Tradition, Cupid Worship Thing !

Now, on to the next Catholic instituted Holiday...

St. Patricks Day :

     

    

Will the Real Saint Patrick, please sit down !!

   This holiday was started by (or should I say "Authorized" by) the Catholic Church in the early 17th century (approx. 1625). A religious holiday that is celebrated on the 14th day of March. Named after St. Patrick (a.d. 385-461) who is commonly recognized as the Patron Saint of Ireland (the Land of Ire [ look up Ire in a dictionary ). { " ire " as in irate; meaning angry, and to show forth Anger.

Anyway...

   St. Patricks Day was made an official "Christian feast day" observed by the Catholic, Anglican and Protestant Churches. Especially observed by the Irish Catholics, but has even become a very well known holiday among the Secular society as well.

   The Catholic Church instituted several types of celebrations such as Parades, Festivals, the wearing of Green, and the Icon known as the Three Leaf Clover (of pagan origin).

   Besides the "Church" services that are observed, the Catholic Church lifts the Lenten restrictions, thereby promoting gluttony, and encouraging the "Holiday Tradition" of the excessive consumption of "Alcohol". Then along comes Drunkeness and other forms of improper behavior.

   But let us look at the "Feast Day" that the Catholic Church decided to hold this on.

   The St. Patrick holiday was so placed by the Catholic Church in order to coincide with the Pagan Irish spring feast of "Ostara" (Goddess of Spring) held on the Vernal [or Spring] equinox. Ostara even has the elements of the Bunny and Eggs in her worship rituals. She [Ostara] is also known as Eostre. Yep, you got it, the same as "Ishtar". Amazing all the Pagan traditions that "Mystery Babylon" has adopted, and then passed down to the present, and all she has to do is give them "Christian" sounding names.

   The Three Leaf Clover :

       The Ancient Celts, or Druids revered the Clover as a sacred symbol known as the Triskelion, or Triquetra. It had a multiple of Celtic Trinitarian meanings, such as :

Spirit, Mind and Body

Mother, Father, and Child

Past, Present and Future

Creation, Preservation and Destruction

   And also Three World representations :

1. Otherworld;   Gods, Goddesses and Spirits (Demon worship)

2. Mortal world;   Man, Animals and Plants  (Creation Worship)

3. Celestial world;   Sun, Moon and Stars  (Horoscope, Zodiac, ect.)

   But of course the "Catholic Church" only came along and gave them another meaning to add to the long list that they already had.

The pagan/catholic Three Leaf Clover icon/idea of, The Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

 

It is totally amazing how the "Catholic Church" can take this Pagan Symbol and turn it into a "Christian" thing just by saying that it represents the Catholic Trinity.

My next question is, "If this one clover is supposed to represent the Trinity"...

Then what do all of these represent?

 Maybe this is what the scriptures mean by "Many lords and many gods" !

NOW...

   The Oak : The oak is another sacred Irish symbol that has come down from the Celtic worship of Dagda (aka. Odin, Zeus). The Druid word/term for Oak is duir (traces back to the Celtic term "Druid"). Even more interesting is that the direct translation of the Celtic word Duir , is Door. This goes back to the Ancient Celtic superstition that Spirits lived in Oak Trees. The Pagan Celts would not hold their pagan worship services (including the worship of Ostara) except in and around a "Sacred Oak". They believed in the tree spirits and that touching the "Sacred Oak" brought good fortune. They would often knock on an Oak tree and say hello to the "Tree Spirit". This ancient custom has been passed down to the present day, known as "Knock on Wood".

   Also the Celtic Oak thing involves the view of the "Roots" that show their ancient connections to "Mother Earth", an important part of WICCAN Worship (Witchcraft).
