" Who Finds the Grail hath found Perfection"
the Angel of John
This brilliant exposition of the Legend of the Grail brings us once again to face the truth of what the Grail really was; but as I reached the Grail at my own death in Christ as the last of My Generation I can well appreciate Justin Griffin in a number of areas; as I have written extensively about the Grail in my own book; of which I am now involved in the interminable final edit; more daunting than writing the work in the first place.
First of all, it is Justin's actual integration of Pelagius into the history of the Grail which goes beyond being just a thin hypothesis but has, upon closer inspection, what I would call the "ring of truth"; a coined phrase would should bring a smile to his lips; for I say this not of myself; but from the angel who is with me. Here he has indeed "hit the mark"; as Parcifal did; whose name means "through the center"; and in Caballah has the number "418". This number has much to do with the Marian Chalic which came to England in 418; although it is written 416; close enough.
Furthermore, there is another area in which this insightful and painstaking scholar and acolyte of Christ has discovered something truly remarkable which I have also written of in my own book: and this deals with the figure of Lancelot and has alleged affair with Guinevere; the cause of so much controversy.
To speak of this I will have to reveal a little more of myself to broach such a sensitive subject; but suffice to say that he who reaches the Grail reaches Perfection; as the Lamb said to his disciples and the Apostle's among them;
"be thou perfect; as your Father in heaven is perfect."
From those knights who took vows of celibacy and poverty by which they gave their lands to the church for the poor and their souls unto the hands of the Good Shepherd for their redemption, it is hard to understand why Lancelot - Arthur's best friend and champion - would have an affair with the queen. But the answer to this is found in Justin's book indirectly; but in mine more directly; yet he has stumbled upon the truth.
The Lamb once said these words as he raised the standard of the external Law to that of the internal Word in these words; to wit;
