Et In Arcadia Ego . . .
"Q: What is the Hour? A: It is the Hour when the Veil of the Temple was rent in twain, When darkness began to outspread the earth, When the Blazing Star was eclipsed, the Sacred Tau was defiled with blood and water, the Word was Lost, and despair and tribulation visited us." ~~ Ritual of the Sovereign Prince of Rose-Croix, Opening Part.
