You may have heard this song performed by Andrea Bocelli or Luciano Pavaroti, and you may have even liked it. If you are a religious person, you may have liked even better, though you most likely did not know the story behind it. The real story, that is.
The title of the song, Panis Angelicus, translates Bread of Angels, and is a verse from a hymn called Sacris solemniis written in the 13th century by Thomas Aquinas. It was dedicated to the feast of Corpus Christi, the Solemnity of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ. While the lyrics of the song do not directly state the bread is the body of Christ, they imply it is, and this is obviously a reference to the passage in the Bible known as the last supper where the apostles are told the bread on the table is the body of Jesus and the wine in the cup is Jesus' blood. Pretty creepy if you think about it, but this is what the text says and this is what they preach in churches.
What most churchgoers do not know for they were never told is the real story. The ritual known in church Christianity as the Eucharist is based on two different non-Christian traditions that have nothing in common with the life of the one known under the name of Jesus (not his real name anyway).
At the time the Christian church was emerging after its founders, known as the Adversaries, as in the adversaries of true Christology abandoned the original, the secular Christian school of thought and Jesus' true teachings and message, the people were celebrating goddess Ceres, the patron of agriculture by making and eating bread cakes that supposedly represented the "body of the goddess." They were also celebrating god Dionysus by drinking wine that supposedly was "the blood of the god."
Indeed, the last supper story is a made up story. Related to that Jesus did not die on the cross, says the same Bible that also suggests he died on the cross at the age of 33, nor did he resurrect. In fact, as you are going to see in A Time of Change, there is absolutely nothing genuinely Christian in the Christianity of the church, or true, and that includes the term Christ.
In this instance the bishops have dishonestly appropriated two pagan traditions, replaced the pagan gods Ceres and Dionysus with pagan god Jesus so they could put the label Christian on what in reality was a plagiarized story, and then used it as a marketing tool to lure followers of other religions to the new and bigger religion in town.
