The Interesting Lineage of Joseph A. Ratzinger
A Guest Document

May His Soul Rest in Peace
The purpose of this brief document is to explore what appears to be the
true genealogy of Joseph A. Ratzinger, and its potential spiritual
This document is not a generalized attack on Jews. How could we be
anti-Semitic if Jesus Christ was a Jew? Our position regarding Jews
could not be any clearer than we have expressed in our document titled:
The Jews Did Not Crucify Jesus; The
Fanatics Did (1)
First, let us review the 'official story':
Alois Ratzinger was born on 16 April (Holy Saturday) 1927 at 11
Schulstrasse, his parents' home in Marktl am Inn, Bavaria and baptized
on the same day. He was the third and youngest child of Joseph
Ratzinger, Sr., a police officer, and his wife, Maria (née Peintner),
whose family were from South Tyrol.” (2)
We will focus on the lineage of his mother, Maria Peintner from South Tyrol
(now part of Italy). (3) Ethnically and
historically the region has very strong Germanic links. Some sources (4)
(5) have traced her lineage back to the 16th
century, with some rather surprising results:
Rabbi Yehuda Loew (Leib) ben Bezalel [the
MaHaRal of Prague]
(c.1512-1609), m. Perla Shmelkes-Reich (c.1516-1610)

It is important to note that it was common in Bohemia (and elsewhere in
Europe) for Jews to 'convert' to Christianity for material (not
spiritual) reasons. And even to convert back to Judaism when the
political and social climate was more in their favor. Many German
Bohemians are actually of Jewish lineage. Even if, as in this case, any
overt Jewish identity would seem to have been buried for over 200 years.
The result is a direct line of Jewish ancestry on his mother's side,
making him Jewish, according to accepted Jewish tradition. He is also
thus a direct descendant of
the Maharal of Prague.
But.... who is the Maharal of Prague?
The Maharal of Prague is:
“...widely known to
scholars of Judaism as the Maharal of Prague, or simply The MaHaRaL,
the Hebrew acronym of "Moreinu ha-Rav Loew", ("Our Teacher, Rabbi
He was (literally) a famous wizard. A 16th century Bohemian Rabbi
famous for his occult study/writing on Kabbalah.
And famed for making a Golem (8)
a creature made out of clay... (using) mystical powers based on the
esoteric knowledge of how God created Adam...”
The man-like creature allegedly functioned as an automaton, activated
by writing a specific series of letters on parchment and placing the
paper in the Golem's mouth - rather
like inserting a floppy disk or CD into a computer. Removing a
key letter (or the whole parchment) would deactivate it. Depending on
the source one reads, a Golem could be mute or could be able to speak.
What does all this have to do with Ratzinger?
The ramifications are many.
1) As the Maharal is of the Royal Line
of David, so thus is Ratzinger.
2) 'Loew' is the German word for 'lion'. Combined with the name 'Judah'
we have the 'Lion of (the tribe of) Judah'.
3) The Maharal was adept at conveying (and concealing) occult concepts
using non occult language. Making
evil appear as if good
4) The full name of the Maharal is: Judah Loew ben Bezalel. The final
name could be construed as a possible alliteration of 'Belial'.
Interpreted thus, Ratzinger is a 'son
, a term occurring in the Hebrew Bible which later
became personified as a demon
in Jewish and Christian texts. (9)
5) However, in a literal translation, 'ben Bezalel' (son of Bezalel)
has great occult meaning, in the biblical figure from whom Maharal and
Ratzinger are descendent (10)
possessed such great wisdom that he could combine those letters of the
alphabet with which heaven and earth were created...”
6) Traditionally it is believed that the Maharal's family descended
from the Babylonian Exilarchs (during the era of the Geonim) (11)
What Ratzinger is descendent of is VERY ancient (and very evil).
The above information does
not add to anything we know (or need to know) about the identity
and function of the Antichrist/False Prophet. But it serves to reinforce this knowledge, both
mundanely and spiritually. It also serves as a further confirmation of what we know from
certain private prophecies about the Antichrist, and of Mary's words
about it in the Secret of La Salette. (12)
Other private locutions indicate that the Antichrist would:
(a) Be Jewish (or that his mother is
(b) That he would have 'training
from wizards, necromancers, and magicians'. That could either be
taken literally, or in the sense in which one inherits musical,
artistic, or other talent from one's forebears.
The potential relevance of
the Golem: Could it have something to do with the False Christ?
he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs, which were
given him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on
the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the
wound by the sword, and lived. And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast,
and that the image of the
beast should speak; and should cause, that whosoever will not
adore the image of the beast, should be slain.” (Revelations 13:14-15)
Is Rudolf a clue to the seeming 'hereditary' Germanic problem with the
occult? A precursor to the fabled Illuminati? He was the secular 'right
arm' of the Maharal and the Holy Roman Emperor.
