Arrow Order of Saint Thomas of Acon


Knights of St Thomas..
The Commemorative Order of Saint Thomas of Acon is an independent British Christian masonic organisation..Membership is restricted to those who are subscribing members of a Preceptory (Commandery) in amity with the Great Priory of the United Religious, Military and Masonic Order of the Temple of England and Wales and Provinces Overseas (commonly referred to as the Knights Templar)..Membership is by invitation only..The basic organisation of the Order is a Chapel..

Even now in Heaven there were angels carrying savage weapons..

The Hospitallers of St Thomas of Canterbury at Acre, usually called the Knights of St Thomas was a Christian military order of the Catholic Church.. Membership was restricted to Englishmen..The emblem of the order was a red cross with a white scallop in the centre and the Knights wore a white habit..It was established in 1191, at Acre, after the capture of that city by Richard I of England and Philip II of France.. After the capture of the city, William, Chaplain to the Dean of St. Pauls Cathedral at London, formed a small religious order, its members taking vows of poverty, chastity and obedience..It was militarised by Peter of Roche, the Bishop of Winchester, during the Fifth Crusade 1217–1221..According to Pope Gregory IX this was done thanks to the indulgence of the existing canons of the Hospital of St Thomas in Acre..At the fall of Acre, 12 May 1291, the Master and nine knights of the Order were killed..Following the battle, the Holy Land was lost to the Saracens, the Order of St Thomas, along with the Order of Knights Templar, moved their Priory to the island of Cyprus where they erected the beautiful St. Nicholas Church at Nicosia.. However divisions arose between the master in Cyprus and the master of the London headquarters..Having abandoned a military role, they also abandoned the rule of the Teutonic Knights, adopting that of the Augustinians and carrying out charitable work and running a grammar school..The Order was dissolved in 1538, along with other monastic orders in England, by Henry VIII..After the dissolution of the Order, the King offered the hospital and chapel for sale..It was purchased by the Mercers.. But the buildings were destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666..The second hall, opened in 1676, was destroyed in 1941 during the Blitz..All that remains of the original Chapel is the recumbent statue of Christ which lies at the entrance to the Mercer's Chapel... race of interbreeding bloodlines, a race within a race in fact, were centered in the Middle and Near East in the ancient world and, over the thousands of years since, have expanded their powers across the globe..A crucial aspect of this has been to create a network of mystery schools and secret societies to covertly introduce their agenda while, at the same time, creating institutions like religions to mentally and emotionally imprison the masses and set them at war with each other..The hierarchy of this tribe of bloodlines is not exclusively male and some of its key positions are held by women..Most Christians could not understand what it said because they didn’t read Latin, but they could rely on the Priests to tell them what it said they should do...
