The Black Robe of The Matrix: Honouring Jesuit Order Co-Founders Ignatius Loyola and Francis Xavier

—updated September 29, 2019

The Matrix (1999), directed by the now Wachowski Sisters, was released not even one full month before the April 20th, 1999 Columbine School shooting, in Columbine, Colorado USA.

Birth and Death Dates

Eric David Harris (April 9, 1981 – April 20, 1999) and Dylan Bennet Klebold (September 11, 1981 – April 20, 1999) were an American mass murder duo who killed 13 people and wounded 24 others[n 1] on April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School in ColumbineColorado.

I personally remember the discussion in 1999 that The Matrix might be pulled from theatres, or the final multi-gun shoot-up lobby scene might be cut from the film. Looks like there's an ongoing thread to the matter in this 2018 article:

"Why Actor Keanu Reeves Has Been Blamed for Both Parkland and Columbine"

Cinematic Release Dates: The Death-Proof X-Man?

The Matrix was released in USA on March 31st, 1999, on the anniversary of

... and released in Australia on April 8th, the day after the birthday of Jesuit Order's co-founder, Francis Xavier.

Do events, like film releases, occur on certain and specific dates? An example of homage to Francis Xavier (released at dusk in Austin, Texas on Friday, April 6th CST, 2007—already April 7th in Rome):

Tarantino's "X"... for Xavier?:

Eye contact—beyond the Fourth Wall—before the cinematic blood sacrifice:

From the brutally graphic sequence:

Death Proof was released the evening of April 6th, double-billed with Planet Terror, as Grindhouse, in 2007. Planet Terror was directed by Robert Rodriguez (who was raised Roman Catholic).

Make Weinstein "Pay"
When filmmaker Robert Rodriguez cast actress Rose McGowan in the B-movie exploitation flick Grindhouse, it was more than finding the right actor for the right role: it was a defiant middle finger to disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
“I then revealed to Rose right then and there that I was about to start writing a movie with Quentin Tarantino, a double-feature throwback to ‘70s exploitation movies, and that if she was interested, I would write her a BAD ASS character and make her one of the leads,” said the filmmaker. “I wanted her to have a starring role in a big movie to take her OFF the blacklist, and the best part is that we would have Harvey’s new Weinstein Company pay for the whole damn thing.”

McGowan's "Bad Ass" role was Death Proof's first absolutely humiliating death.


"Rose McGowan's American father ran a Children of God sex chapter in—you guessed it—Italy....":

Wanted: Body Parts 

- April 7th, 1994: Rwandan Genocide began. Weapon of choice: the Machete
- April 8th, 1994: Kurt Cobain's body is found in his Seattle home one month after his drug overdose in Rome, Italy. When did Cobain die by a "self-inflicted" gunshot (shotgun) wound? April 7th? (Cobain's death date is listed as April 5th, 1994—an estimated death-date); Cobain's daughter named Francis
- April 6th, 2018: At 5pm, CST, or 12 AM, April 7th in Rome, Italy, the Humboldt Bronco's Bus Crash in Saskatchewan, Canada—Francis Xavier's birthday—approximately 2 months after Xavier's venerated arm, a Roman Catholic Relic, crossed Canada
- April 7th, Green Shirt Day: following the death of Humboldt Bronco Logan Boulet, and the Logan Boulet Effect:

Homage to Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger—Pope Benedict XVI, current Pope Emeritus, and former head of The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (aka The Inquisition)?:

Some event coincidences of names and titles:
- Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, the name of the semi-truck driver was sentenced by Judge Inez Cardinal on March 22nd (3/22), 2019.
- the mis-identification and false pronouncement of death of Humboldt Bronco Xavier Labelle, who was pronounced alive almost 48 hours after the accident, added to the immense tension of the Humbolt Bronco bus crash narrative.

Holy Relic Crosses Over Canada, January/February 2018—Francis Xavier's Severed Arm
The holy and uncorrupted arm of an ancient saint is crossing [Canada] in a two-week tour that began this week in Ottawa and Quebec City.

Francis Xavier's Severed Arm:

Thomas A. Anderson was born in Lower Downtown, Capital City, USA on March 11, 1962 (so, in the real world near 2162) according to his criminal record, or September 13, 1971 according to his passport (both seen in the film). His mother was Michelle McGahey (the name of the first film's art director[5]) and his father was John Anderson. He attended Central West Junior High and Owen Patterson High (named after the film's production designer). In high school, he excelled at science, math and computer courses, and displayed an aptitude for literature and history. Although he had disciplinary troubles when he was thirteen to fourteen years old, Anderson went on to become a respected member of the school community through his involvement in football and hockey.
At the start of the series, Neo is one of billions of humans neurally connected to the Matrix, unaware that the world he lives in is a simulated reality.


A Salute to Rome

"Capital City", in addition to the rotunda encircled by a Roman Wreath—a symbolic halo above Neo, or "The One"?

Note: Thomas A. Anderson's passport dates, notably the expiry date: September 11, 2001.

—I'm sure it's just a coincidence...

... like the Guy Fawkes mask, the question-mark, combined with the symbol of the Roman Wreath for Anonymous; like the Roman Wreath encircling a Flat Earth type map on the UN flag....

... like the Wachowski Sisters also produced the Guy Fawkes story in V for Vendetta (2005), directed by Australian James McTeigue—

—the classic "Guy Fawkes" mask (Fawkes, a Jesuit Assassin given up by his own for the gunpowder-plot of November 5th, 1605), and the "?" symbol for Anonymous:

UN flag:

... like the possible and highly probable Divine-Royal birthdate of Jesus of Nazareth—September 11th, 3BC.
Dr Michael Heiser lays out an exceptional argument for this, linking September 11th, 3BC with Revelation 12:1-6

... like Google sharing a birthday with the Jesuit Order—September 27th?
- Google Earth, Google Maps, Google Scholar, Google Translate, Google Classroom etc Pope Francis stepping in to the office of the papacy on March 12, 2013—both Ignatius Loyola and Francis Xavier, founders of the Jesuit Order, were canonized by Pope Gregory XV on March 12, 1622.

The Matrix—Self-Mapping and Self-Presentation

Morpheus, now a mentor, explains to Neo in the void of a matrix construct program (and this applies to each character in the entire Matrix Trilogy) why he looks and dresses in the fashion that we, the viewing audience, see him:

"Your appearance is what we call residual self-image. It is the mental projection of your digital self."

Neo, waking up in the "real world"—a brilliant play on the cinematic "Fourth Wall" (taken further at the end of The Matrix Reloaded, where Neo openly confronts and defeats a small group of machine Sentinels):

Plugged in to the Matrix, after being rescued by Morpheus and Team, Neo's residual self-image—the mental projection of his digital self, in front of a halo-type Jesuit-sunburst—in The Matrix Reloaded:

IHS: Iēsous Hēmeteros Sōtēr or Isis, Horus, Serapis?

Trinity and the 4th Wall of the False Reality

The Black Trench-Coat...

The story of Neo's wardrobe:
Neo's wardrobe was created to express his "attained stature", his "Ecclesiastical mix with Zen-Chinese" look, as well as be functional and versatile, while/and was able to conceal wire harnesses during production. "All costumes that become synonymous with a particular movie have a long-term resonance in the sub-conscious of people ...." Black Robe

Cassocks come in different styles. A Roman cassock has 33 buttons down the front; a French cassock has fewer front buttons, but buttons sewn to the sleeves after the manner of a suit, and a broader skirt.


Jesuit cassock has a fly fastened with hooks. An Anglican cassock is double breasted and fastens at the shoulders on the opposing side of the breast.
Black is the usual color for the cassocks of priests, although white is favored in the tropics.
The color for bishops and other prelates is purple, for cardinals red, and white for the pope.
Cardinals, bishops and other prelates also have what is called a "house cassock," which is black with red or purple piping, buttons, buttonholes, and sash-loops; this is usually worn with a sash.

The Jesuit Order: the Ultimate Counter-Reformation Measure est. September 27, 1540

In Rome, the Society of Jesus–a Roman Catholic missionary organization–receives its charter from Pope Paul III. The Jesuit order played an important role in the Counter-Reformation and eventually succeeded in converting millions around the world to Catholicism. ...  The “Black-Robes,” as they were known in Native America, often preceded other Europeans in their infiltration of foreign lands and societies. The life of a Jesuit was one of immense risk, and thousands of priests were persecuted or killed by foreign authorities hostile to their mission of conversion. However, in some nations, such as India and China, the Jesuits were welcomed as men of wisdom and science.

Not Christianity: Roman Catholicism Unmasked

The Scream, by Canadian Artist Kent Monkman, illustrates the obscured and shamefully dark history—which has gone unpunished—of Canada and its treatment of its Indigenous People. The Sixties Scoop continued the cultural genocide, just as it began with Roman Catholic French "explorer" Jacques Cartier's first contact in 1534:
The “Sixties Scoop” refers to the large-scale removal or “scooping” of Indigenous children from their homes, communities and families of birth through the 1960s, and their subsequent adoption into predominantly non-Indigenous, middle-class families across the United States and Canada. This experience left many adoptees with a lost sense of cultural identity. The physical and emotional separation from their birth families continues to affect adult adoptees and Indigenous communities to this day.

The Black Trench Coat Revisited

In the film's rising action, Neo wore, until wounded, a long black trench coat, but lacked the confidence in his identity throughout the entire film, until the very end.

Stepping out of, and into, Identity. Neo is "The One":

The peaceful, calm warrior emerged in the second film, The Matrix Reloaded, released on May 15 (USA), 2003, with Neo wearing the "black robe". In The Matrix Reloaded and the final film, The Matrix Revolutions (2003), Neo's character is developed as priest and saviour of mankind.
The Matrix Reloaded 's advertising posters made use of an unconventional image-crop,  removing a large portion of actors' heads—like a partial decapitation:

Guillotined by Ignace (Ignatius)

Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin (French pronunciation: ​[ɡijɔtɛ̃]; 28 May 1738 – 26 March 1814) was a French physicianpolitician and freemason who proposed on 10 October 1789 the use of a device to carry out death penalties in France, as a less painful method of execution. Although he really did not invent the guillotine, and in fact opposed the death penalty, his name became an eponym for it. The actual inventor of the prototype was a man named Tobias Schmidt.

Youtube's Eric777 also posted an article on Joseph-Ignace Guillotin:

"... Right in the intro to Guillotin's wiki page it says that he was a freemason..."

This lead me to ask the question: Is Agent Smith, in The Matrix, the representative for Freemasonry, where Neo, a representative for Black Pope, consolidates his power by ultimately defeating Agent Smith in The Matrix Revolutions

Found in Translation?

We remember history: 1772 saw the publishing of the "translation" of Sun Tzu's Art of War, by French Jesuit Jean Joseph Marie Amiot, under the Jesuit Superior General Lorenzo Ricci. 

Was this a brilliant plan, strategized and telegraphed, by the great mind of Ricci, whose plan was revealed through Art of War, summoning the absolute obedience—as stated in the Jesuit Extreme Oath "perinde ac cadaver" **—of the Jesuit Order.

[I]n 1773 anti-Jesuit forces succeeded in persuading Pope Clement XIV to issue Dominus ac Redemptor, the papal brief suppressing the Society of Jesus, in order to secure peace in the Church.  Jesuits in Italy had to renounce the Society of Jesus in order to remain in ministry.   Some of those who refused found refuge in Catherine the Great’s Russia (which then included much of Catholic Poland-Lithuania).  A fan of neither the Habsburg and Bourbon dynasties, nor the pope, Catherine put many Jesuits to work in extending their education system to Russia. 

Was Napoleon, a Freemason, used by the Jesuit Order to deliver a near-fatal head-wound to the political power of the Papacy—Pope Pius VI—in 1798, consolidating power for the Jesuit Order for their re-emergence in 1814?

—The hidden hands of Washington, Marx, Nietzsche, Stalin, Napoleon, et al—all Jesuit puppets.

Under orders from Napoleon, Pope Pius VI was arrested in February 1798, and died on August 29, 1799. August 29th—sound familiar?

T2: Judgment Day

Linda Hamilton, as Sarah Connor in James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) claims to have foreknowledge of a specific tragic date in this disturbingly emotional scene—a film within the film:

"It's not a dream ... it's real. I know the date it happens. On August 29th, 1997, it's gonna feel pretty fuckin' real to you too...."

August 29, 1997—a play on August 29, 1799?

James Francis Cameron, an self-proclaimed atheist who was raised "Protestant", wrote, directed, and produced Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

Linda Hamilton is also connected to September 11th, 2001, by another television program:

It’s one of the messages “Laura” (Linda Hamilton) leaves that makes your ears perk up.  “Laura” calls Frasier, thinking she’s called her sister, and says that she’s coming in a day early, can someone pick her up at the airport?  She’ll be arriving on American Airlines, flight 11.

American Airlines flight 11 was the commercial jet we were told hit the North Tower at 8:46 AM local time on September 11th.

The air date of Odd Man Out was May 20th, 1997...

...Frasier’s creator and writer David Angell, along with his wife Lynn, were supposedly sitting right across from Mohammad Atta on that fateful flight.

"Harley Davidson T-Shirt Guy" Sells His Soul for Fox News: theatrical commentary shores up the visual narrative

Fox News Reporter: "People talk about how it looked like a movie..."

Hyper-realistically excited Harley Davidson T-Shirt Guy: "... I saw this plane come out of nowhere and just ream right in to the side of the twin towers, exploding through the other side. And then I witnessed both Towers collapse, one first and then the second, mostly due to structural failure because the fire was just too intense."

It was in the Cards (created and released in 1994 by American Steve Jackson)

This video is incredibly misinformed. Please cross-check your facts.
And to the guy who narrates this. Please work on your pronunciation. It's pronounced [my-tir] not [mi-tra]


Pope Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) with Jesuit Superior General Arturo Sosa:

Jorge Mario Bergoglio shows his hidden hand in 2008:


The beginning of The Matrix Reloaded is similar to how The Matrix ends—

Death Proof?

"Everything that has a beginning has an end."

Was The Matrix an homage to Ignatius Loyola and Francis Xavier, and more specifically, an homage to the office of the powerful Black Pope—the Jesuit Superior General?

"All warfare is based on deception." ~ Sun Tzu (aka Lorenzo Ricci SJ?)

Revelation 13:5-10

And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling,[a] that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them.[b] And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. If anyone has an ear, let him hear:
10 If anyone is to be taken captive,
    to captivity he goes;
if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
    with the sword must he be slain.
Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
