In the name of the Rose

I recently watched the movie of the book by Umberto Eco, where a wandering English monk enters a vatican library and discovers conspiracy etc., suprise suprise. Made me think of approaching the Vatican library in a big pair of boots, giving the middle finger to the swiss guards, saying 'In the Name of the Rose', and kicking in the door. At the same time I was reading that 'Da Vinci Code' book, and the author said that the keystone would be under a rose, kinda made me think about the Royal Arch, the tribe of Zabulon, and the cornerstone of the temple, Jeheshuah, the reconciling pentagram, and all of those with his name written on them.

Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem

"Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light: Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things. (Lit is such a Light) in houses, which Allah hath permitted to be raised to honour; for the celebration, in them, of His name: In them is He glorified in the mornings and in the evenings, (again and again)."

Sura 24:35-36, Al Nour - The Light
