Brotherhood Of The Blood.

    

     The other night I was watching a cable television show, called "American Heroes", which was dedicated to secret societies. One of the more fascinating aspects of the show was Spain's "Brotherhood of the Blood", a heretical group of Catholics who claim to have the actual liquefied blood of Jesus in a vial.  They are located in Spain and once a year parade around in red hooded costumes similar to those worn by the KKK.  They claim that Christ never actually died and that they not only have his blood , but also his corpse. They also claim that he had children, who are the basis for the Merovingian Dynasty in France.  There are many followers of this an other secret religious societies who believe that Jesus did not die on the cross, either faking his death or being taken down from the cross before his death. These people believe that Christ and his disciples fled to France, where he married Mary Magdalen and raised a family.  It is suggested that the Knights Templar was not actually abolished in the 14th century, but was reborn as another secret society know as the "Priory of Scion".  The main objective of the "Priory of Scion is to protect the descendants of Jesus Christ. 
    I'm sure just about everyone has seen and enjoyed such movies as "The DaVinci Code" and "Angels and Demons", but I realize that there are a lot of people who actually believe the theories explored in these movies. Admittedly the Vatican and its workings are secretive and mysterious to everyone, even those who are deeply connected to the Vatican. It is rather exciting to wonder about what supernatural powers or occurrences may emanate from the halls of these  ancient bureaucracies deep within the walls of the Vatican!  Being a lover of horror movies, especially those involving demonic possession, my attention is more riveted to the movie if the Vatican and exorcism is involved. The program I referred to, I believe was not one that involved facts, but conspiracies and was not intended to inform, but to entertain. I do not consider myself to be a religious person, so  I did not read anything religious into the program or the revelations of the secret society showcased. I thought it was vaguely entertaining. I did come up with one question though, which I would like to ask the believers of the "Brotherhood of the Blood". If they indeed believe Christ was born of a virgin birth, as most Christians do, what would be the DNA findings of an analysis of Christ's blood?  Just thinking!
