The Priory of Sion (also the Prieure de Sion) is said to be the "secret society of societies."1
The Holy Grail
Tied in with this unscriptural ~ even blasphemous ~ legend are the tales of the Holy Grail and the Spear of Longinus. Some teach that as the blood of Jesus oozed from his body on the cross, it was collected in the Holy Grail cup. Esoterically that would make the Holy Grail, if it exists, magical and capable of great miracles.
A variation of this story is that the Holy Grail was the drinking vessel of Jesus at the Last Supper, which again would translate into the cup being a magical talisman.
The Spear of longinus
The Spear of Longinus is yet another legend connected to the Priory of Sion. It holds that a Roman Centurion named Longinus was the one who thrust his spear into Jesus' side at the crucifixion. Some of Jesus' blood is alleged to have fallen on him and miracles ensued. Thus, again, a magical talisman was created ~ the Spear of Longinus.
Throughout history wicked tyrants, including Napoleon and Hitler, have sought possession of the Spear, believing that it is the Spear of Destiny and that whoever possesses it shall have the power to rule the world.
William Cooper, whose book, Behold a Pale Horse, and his revelations on his national radio program so angered the elite they put out a contract on his life, sometimes mentioned the Spear of Destiny.2
Again, I remind you that it makes not one iota of difference what you believe. If they (the Illuminati) believe, you will be affected.3
The Spear is a symbol of long-standing repute in the pagan and ancient Mystery Religions. In the Egyptian religion, it was called the Arrow of Re, or Ra, the Sun God, who was also called Horus, son of Osiris and his reincarnation, who had the all-seeing eye.
Moreover, the Rosicrucian Order seems to be somehow connected with both the legend of the Spear and the Priory of Sion. D. C. Yermak, writing in The Axis of Death - Vatican, Masonry, Zionism, Enemies of God, explains that,
"The Rosicrucians, by making their secret sign with the first three fingers of the right hand united, make the Sign of an Arrow."6
The Rosicrucian's Sign of an Arrow is dark and evil because it is used by the individual to remove himself from God's Blessing and leave himself purposely exposed to the arrows of the devil. (In this case, the form, or shape, relates the arrow to the spear).Dean Grace, authoritative researcher in symbology and Masonic secrets, believes that at least some modern-day disciples of this international black lodge, Priory of Sion, communicate their involvement to other hidden members by giving the Sign of the Spear Point.7
Grace's research also indicates the Priory of Sion is either linked or had something to do in the development of other, related occult groups such as the Order of Knights Templar.
"The spear point symbol," he says, "is the building block of the four-spoked, eight-pointed Maltese Cross of the Order of the Knights of Malta."8
A variation of the sharp, angular spear point sign is that displayed in this chapter of Codex Magica in the photos of ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson and U.S.A. Vice President Dick Cheney. However, their modified hand and finger positioning is likely simply a personal eccentricity. As in all cases of secret hand signs, human variation and personality intervene, so that not all the signs are rendered expertly and in a crisp, uniform, standardized fashion.
When placed in or near the female vulva area or the male genital area, the spear point becomes a phallic symbol. In all cases, the sign of the spear point is given so that the Y, the spear or arrow, is pointing downward, toward the nether regions where, presumably, Satan and his legions reside. That is, toward the pit of hell.

She reports that the Dragon's Eye forms a triple triangle, sacred to the Goddess, and that this symbol appears often in medieval books of magic, to invoke the protection of female spirits and entities.
