EXTERIOR- The Great Dome- The Great Dome is a hallmark of the Basilica. Its diameter is more than twice that of the central dome of St. Mark’s in Venice, Italy. It features five Marian symbols:

1) Fleur de Lis: a type of lily symbolic of purity and royalty; it signifies Mary as the Queen of Heaven.
2) Cedar of Lebanon: a stately majestic tree symbolizing incorruptibility. Treasured as a source of wealth, its timber was used to build the Temple of Solomon. It is a symbol of both Mary and Jesus.
3) Tower of Ivory: an architectural symbol of virginity and vigilance; ivory symbolizes purity and moral fortitude. In Christian art, the Tower of Ivory symbolizes the Immaculate Conception.
4) Star of the Sea: the most popular interpretation of the Hebrew name Miryam.
5) Intertwining Monograms of A and M: the first letter of the words Ave and Maria, the greeting of the Archangel to Mary at the Annunciation.

Each symbol is contained within a six-pointed Star of David. The six-pointed star of David represents the royal Judaic lineage of Mary-the House of David.

Patiently Answering a Misled and Confused Protestant Christian’s Accusations with Logic and Historical Facts

The Roman Catholic Mass is a Satanic mockery of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world!

– Kevin Lucier, a MISLED AND CONFUSED Protestant writer and publisher at Glorybound.net

Adam Weishaupt, a Catholic Jesuit priest [created] the Illuminati in 1776 as a front group for the Jesuits, and in reorganizing the Freemasons. They used the Jewish Talmud, a book of Jewish traditions and antichrist principles, to gain control.

– Kevin Lucier, a MISLED AND CONFUSED Protestant writer and publisher at Glorybound.net

What follows below is an exchange of writings between myself, Judas Maccabaeus (Jason Nicholas Corning, a Catholic from Wenatchee, WA) and Kevin Lucier, a certain Protestant Christian writer and owner of an outrageously hateful website called Glorybound.net. For the purposes of simplicity, Mr. Kevin Lucier’s online writings are designated by the words ‘MISLED AND CONFUSED’ while the written response of Judas Maccabaeus is termed ‘A CONCERNED CATHOLIC BELIEVER’. Here are two essential portions of this ongoing exchange:

THE MISLED AND CONFUSED: The Roman Catholic Mass is a Satanic mockery of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world!
A CONCERNED CATHOLIC BELIEVER: The Roman Catholic Mass is literally based upon the practices and rituals of the Temple of Jerusalem during the time of Jesus as well as long before. The chants, recitations, and songs found in the first part of the Catholic Mass (called the Liturgy of the Word) are extremely similar if not sometimes identical to the daily religious practices of the Jews at the Temple of Jerusalem. The bread and wine offerings of the Temple are now what Catholics call the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Also, the bread and wine of Communion symbolize the body and blood of the daily lamb sacrifice at the Temple of Jerusalem- a Hebrew practice which dates back as far in history as Abel, the son of Adam and Eve (~ 3770 BC)

THE MISLED AND CONFUSED: Adam Weishaupt, a Catholic Jesuit priest [created] the Illuminati in 1776 as a front group for the Jesuits, and in reorganizing the Freemasons. They used the Jewish Talmud, a book of Jewish traditions and antichrist principles, to gain control.
A CONCERNED CATHOLIC BELIEVER: It is a historical fact that Adam Weishaupt was never ordained as a Catholic Priest, let alone a Jesuit Priest. Founded in 1776, Adam Weishaupt’s organization achieved a short lifespan of popular support but was basically extinct by the end of the year 1785, or as Trevor W. McKeown notes ‘In March and August 1785…the Order (Illuminati) began to decline, so that by the end of the eighteenth century it had ceased to exist.’ (A Bavarian Illuminati primer, by Trevor W. McKeown). There is absolutely no historical evidence that the Illuminati, or its Founder Adam Weishaupt, knew anything at all about the Jewish Talmud and none of their writings ever mention this ancient Jewish religious text.

CATHOLIC MASS: The Catholic sacrifice of the Mass is taken from the Jewish rituals and has slight influences brought in from Roman and other Middle Eastern civilizations. However, the Mass is modeled on the Jewish synagogue meetings and the temple sacrifices, hence its division from a strictly didactic format (the first half of Mass) to a form of ritual worship and sacrifice (the latter half).

– Are Catholics Pagans? Religion & Spirituality > Christianity > Catholicism, Answers.com

THE ILLUMINATI: The Order [of the Illuminati] was at first very popular, and enrolled no less than two thousand names upon its registers…. Its Lodges were to be found in France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, and Italy. Knigge Baron Adolph Knigge (1752 – 1796), who was one of its most prominent working members, and the auther of several of its Degrees, was a religious man, and would never have united with it had its object been, as has been charged, to abolish Christianity. But it cannot be denied, that in the process of time abuses had crept into the Institution and that by the influence of unworthy men, the system became corrupted; yet the course accusations of Barruel and Robison are known to be exaggerated, and some of them altogether false…. The Edicts [on June 22, 1784, for its suppression] of the Elector of Bavaria [Duke Karl Theodor] were repeated in March and August, 1785 and the Order began to decline, so that by the end of the eighteenth century it had ceased to exist.
