This piece is a mild mannered yet purposeful departure from our regular Chrysalis fare. Today, July 26, marks the anniversary of the birth of St Stanislaus, the patron saint of Poland.
Stanislaus was born near Krakow in 1030. Like St Thomas Becket, whose story is parallel to his in many ways, Stanislaus is remembered as a martyr who fought tirelessly against the evils of government corruption, a crusade that eventually cost him his life.
The Gothic stained glass window pictured (left) depicts Stanislaus. It’s from the Dominican Monastery in Krakow. As you no doubt noticed, the saint’s left eye is shown missing. Whether deliberate or not, this symbolism merits interpretation.
Last year an obscure poster on Reddit noted that left-eye symbolism appears currently to be in vogue in Hollywood, especially in The Conjuring Universe:
“First, The Conjuring. When the sheet rips open during the exorcism, it’s the demon’s left eye that’s exposed. In The Nun, the snake bites the priest in the left eye. In Annabelle – Creation, the mom has her left eye torn out. In Annabelle Comes Home, the babysitter’s friend’s dad is missing his left eye. In The Conjuring 2, Ed gets blinded when hot steam hits his left eye. And which eyeball is broken on the Annabelle doll? The left eye!”
Hollywood aside, One-Eye symbolism has been around for ages from Odin to the All-Seeing Eye of Free Masonry and the New World Order.
“The Supreme, invisible Creator of all things was called All-Father. His regent in Nature was Odin, the one-eyed god.” ~ Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages.
Most notable for our own times is George Orwell’s magnum opus, 1984, a blueprint for elite control and censorship. Appropriately enough, nearly all editions of the book feature an All-Seeing Eye (“Big brother is watching you”).
“The [all-seeing] eye is symbolic of knowledge not perceived by the general public. The public can see the symbolism, but they are oblivious to the truth, ruined by prosperity and deceived by lies.” ~ From The Stranger Fiction.
Every day our media embroils us in lies. We must remain vigilant and resist group-think.
The positive symbolism of the Eye of Horus, which is spiritual enlightenment, has been coopted and corrupted by secret societies and a sinister global elite as the primary symbol of their power. Do not be deceived, this evil global elite is intent on destroying Western Civilization. America is squarely in their crosshairs.
St. Stanislaus, pray for us.

Interestingly, Stanislas (without the ‘u’) is a quite popular given name in Central Europe, particularly Germany and France in addition to Poland. Thanks for your comment!
