The Quest for the Grail

The original legend tells us that Arthur, King of the World, had inevitably lost the Holy Grail, a treasure of divine origin which can only be seen by the noble and pure.  This results in shadows overtaking the land, beginning a Dark Age.

A desperate crusade begins to recover so valuable a treasure, attended by the most valiant, noble and honorable knights.  Through terrible battles and various combats almost all of them fall dead, only three are left alive:  Sir Galahad, Sir Bors and Sir Parsifal.  This last, knight Parsifal, known to have the purest heart, his chastity and legendary lineage giving him the face of a Saint, was loved by his people and had an incorruptible loyalty towards his king, who by the way had lost the gift to see the Grail for fatigue, exhaustion and betrayal had made him weaken and lose faith in his primary mission, falling into the deadly trap of worldly suffering.

Those who are weakened by illusory fatigue fall into the fatal trap of abandoning the fight.  Predestined to be warriors, there is no sense of peace or tranquility, the mission of those elect is to live inventing strategies to defeat the sinister enemy.  Those who live trapped in the animal passions of joy and sadness succumb to the harshness of that age, as there exists a purely earthly personality, an “I” that seeks personal gain and encourages fun and pleasure, desiring power, because to inferior material men nothing is left them than to seek powers on this sick earth.  Contrary to our I, there is a “He,” the warrior spirit alien to the material world, inspired by the ideal.  He guides us to the most beautiful struggle, putting aside selfishness and personal welfare, for with the flags we carry we can do the noblest deeds, sacrifice for what we love, giving our lives if necessary.

Sir Parsifal was able to recover the Grail, this gift of the Gods that only a few get to win.  The rest will fall along the way, the final victory will go exclusively to the pure, not to the ambitious seeking personal gain, but to those who fight to the end without expecting anything in return, only the victory of the noble ideal.
