In God’s Name

I am far from an expert on anything Italian. However, I do have a keen interest in the nation’s most notable and controversial organisations: the Holy See, the Vatican (and its internal bank, the IOR), the Mafia and the Masons (such as the powerful masonic sect known as P2, or Propaganda Due, which was regarded as a secret ‘state-within-a-state’ – Silvio Berlusconi was once a member).


God’s Banker

In the early light of dawn, on a summer’s morning of June 1982, a man’s body was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge in the City of London (distinct from Greater London, the City of London is a sovereign state with its own police force). That man turned out to be Roberto Calvi (known as God’s banker), the chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, Italy’s largest private bank. Calvi had ties to all the aforementioned organisations: the Mafia, the Vatican and the Masons. Even though this death has become one of the greater unsolved mysteries of the modern day, it sheds light on to the shadowy underworld of Italy’s organised crime which reaches right into the heart of the government and the Vatican.


With an orange rope tied in a lover’s knot around his neck, Calvi’s body was found hanging from scaffolding, bricks were in his pockets along with £7,500 cash. Within 24 hours of the body being found, the City of London police (perhaps due to Masonic influence) had concluded that Roberto Calvi had committed suicide.

Shortly after the death, the Banco Ambrosiano bank collapsed with debts of over $1 billion (the Vatican and the Mafia lost a lot of money). In a case of enduring controversy, it has since been established that Calvi did not commit suicide, he was assassinated. As stated on Murder Map: “A year before his death, Calvi’s name had been discovered on a list of members of a Masonic Lodge known as Propaganda Due or P2, alongside two Cabinet ministers, 48 MPs and the heads of all three intelligence agencies”. Various sources do state that another name for P2 was the ‘frati neri’ or ‘black friars’ – Calvi was the victim of a Masonic ritual slaying and the location was of course symbolic, it is a bridge which connects the Masonically named “Square Mile” of the City of London with Greater London.


As stated on the Guardian: “As chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, he was in charge of an organisation that laundered money made largely from the heroin trade for the Mafia. He knew the dark financial secrets of the Vatican… No Mafia killing in London could happen unless it were ordered by Francesco di Carlo”. Over here in the UK, Francesco di Carlo was involved in trafficking heroin and hashish before getting arrested – he is now serving a 25 year prison sentence.

The murder of Calvi came just a few years after the death of Pope John Paul I, in 1978 – just 33 days after he was elected (anybody familiar with Freemasonry or esoteric numerology will know the significance of the number 33). Some speculated that the pope’s death was due to his attempt at breaking the ties between Banco Ambrosiano & the Vatican. Another key figure was that of Licio Gelli, Grand Master of the P2 masonic lodge. Now at the age of 84, Gelli is on house arrest after being sentenced to 12 years for fraud in connection with the collapse of Calvi’s bank.

Vatican bound cocaine-filled condoms seized by German customs

Drugs, guns, money laundering, assignations, sex-trafficking and paedophilia are crimes usually associated with European crime syndicates, South American Cartels and the New York mafia but the activities of these lower-level organised crime units pale in comparison to the achievements of the Holy See’s international mafia, headquartered in Rome. There is no shortage of scandals which emerge from the self-proclaimed “Mother Church”. A report from the MSN in the past week stated that German custom officials seized 14 condoms filled with liquid cocaine addressed to the Vatican’s main postal centre. The package (worth over £30,000) sent from a South American country was intercepted in January at the German city airport of Leipzig. The authorities handed it into a Vatican official with the aim setting up a trap but the package was never claimed – it is likely that the intended recipient (any of the city state’s 800 residents) had received a tip off.

Too Big to Jail

The Vatican bank (which overseas several $billion in assets) was at the centre of a scandal last year inhsbc-logo which a Vatican cleric, a spy, and a financier were accused of conspiring to smuggle €20 million ($26 million) out of Switzerland aboard a private jet (it sounds like the plot line of a Hollywood movie). And also, as stated on the BBC in 2013: “HSBC bank reportedly asked more than 40 diplomatic missions to close their accounts as part of a programme to reduce business risks.” In an act which would have caused absolute havoc, we must ask: why did HSBC attempt to sever ties with the church? Well, if you followed the stories in 2013 (or if you are vaguely familiar with the history of the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation which was set up in the aftermath of the First Opium War, primarily to launder the profits made from opium), perhaps you are aware that HSBC is a conduit for criminal enterprises. As one of the world’s largest banks, it has played a key role in the laundering of billions of pounds through many of its branches. After it was found guilty for its criminal activities in 2012 and fined £1.2 billion, one report stated that: “… [HSBC] failed to monitor a staggering £38 trillion of money moving across borders from places that could have posed a risk”. So clearly, HSBC was trying to sever ties with some of the Churches money launderers, in order to tidy up its public image.



Headquartered in London, the international opium trade is one of the most efficient production and distribution systems of any commodity (90% of the worlds opium is now produced in Afghanistan, which the Jesuit controlled Western Forces invaded just over 10 years ago). The City of London is, and has always been, one of the world’s largest money-laundering centres.

In 2009, it was reported that the cocaine market is worth over $80 billion annually. As stated in a RAND report, written by Peter Chalk: “Colombia currently accounts for the vast bulk of cocaine produced in Latin America. In 2009, the country produced 270 metric tons (MT) of cocaine, making it the principal supplier for both the United States and the worldwide market”. Columbia, and much of South America, is ruled by the Catholic Church and the Jesuits. Aside from a $multi-billion drug market, Columbia (and South America) has vast amounts of raw materials – yet poverty is prevalent amongst the peoples. This is by no means an attack on Catholics (I have many blessed Catholic friends) but, have you ever wondered why Catholic nations, in general, are stricken with poverty and in a state of backwardness? Compare them to ‘Protestant’ nations such as the UK, USA, Germany etc (for a brief summary on the Protestant Reformation, see my previous blog post). On this matter, researcher Eric Phelps states: “… the Pope’s divine right nobles rule and the Dark Ages have been fully restored in accordance with the Order’s Counter-Reformation Council of Trent”.


Various European oligarchs consolidated their wealth in the first half of the last millennium before the advances in navigational techniques allowed for trading across international waters, rather than land. This meant, drugs, slaves, spices and tea could be shipped across international waters. The British East India Company was established in the year 1600 and went on to conduct 50% of world trade (its involvement with the opium trade is a topic I cover in my forthcoming book). It is also worthy of mention, the Catholic Church and the Jesuits secured many lucrative trade routes – including the port of Nagasaki in Japan. As one-evil states: “The Jesuits promoted heavily the growth of their wholly owned port of Nagasaki, to one of the most profitable trading ports in the world… The Jesuits under Peter Claver S.J. were also instrumental in the development of the slave trade from Africa to South America to be used in the gold mines. Up to half a million slaves were shipped and arrived under the watch of [saint] Peter Claver S. J.”

Both the British Crown and the Vatican are the world’s greatest drug dealers – the oligarchs are waging a war against humanity and some of their weapons include cocaine and heroin. Every society throughout the world is abundant in drug addicts. Whilst the police fight against the low-level drug-related crimes in local communities, the international drugs market is completely controlled; it is being fought with one hand while being fed with the other.

  1. […] [Quantum Prophecy]Known as God’s Banker due to his work with the Vatican, Robert Calvi was found hanging from Blackfriars bridge on June 18th, 1982.
