Concerning the premier AMORC order in the world, founded in America, the leader is known by the ancient Roman designation "Imperator"(Emperor), and on Oct. 3, 2018, (passing of St. Francis of Assisi on Oct. 3, 1226, and the eve of his Feast), Imperator "Christian" Bernard announced his resignation, and the election of Claudio (Julio-Claudian?) Mazzucco as Imperator. Like Pope Francis, he has a North Italian/South American background, moving to Brazil at 6 with his family, but later moving back to Italy. On August 18, 2019 (the eve of the passing of Emperor Augustus on Aug. 19, 14 AD), he was installed as Imperator of AMORC, at the AMORC World Convention in Rome (the secret name of ROMA [Rome], spelled backwards, is AMOR). Ironically, on this same day, Pope Francis held an Angelus/Papal Blessing in St. Peter's Square. Because of similarities in the lists of names of famous members of both groups, AMORC has been conjectured to be the "real" Priory of Sion, which was also known as the Ordre de la Rose-Croix Veritas. Also, like the Dragon Court, it has traditional origins in ancient Egypt under the Pharaohs. Saint Pope John XXIII, another North Italian, is supposed to have been initiated into the Order of Rosicrucians in 1935. When he became Pope in 1958, he chose the name John XXIII, and there was a John XXIII antipope in the 15th century, and supposedly a John XXIII Grand Master of the Priory of Sion at the time he became Pope. When he addressed the opening of Vatican II on Oct. 11, 1962, he stated that "Divine Providence is leading us to a NEW ORDER of things", almost 30 years before President George H.W. Bush made his "New World Order" speech. Therefore, are Rome/Rosicrucians/Priory of Sion all connected?
