Gnostic Sanctuaries

Any gnostic can form their sanctuary in their house; a table, bread and grape wine; three lights are lit on the altar.

A knight will perform the office of priest and another the office of acolyte; at the end of the ceremony a magical chain is performed as follows. In the shape of a wheel [circle], the attendees will hold hands; the palms of their left hands will face up, receiving, and the palms of their right hands face down in the attitude of giving strength to the brother or sister. The left receives, the right gives. Their hidden forces circulate through this chain. Thereafter they will radiate love by saying: "May all beings be happy, may all beings be joyful, may all beings be at peace." Then they will chant the mantra AOM, opening the mouth with the A, rounding it with the O and closing it with the M. It is necessary to lengthen the sound of each letter. 

This Gnostic ritual was celebrated by the apostles of Jesus. This ritual is a work of high ceremonial magic, when this is performed it is simultaneously repeated in all seven planes of cosmic consciousness. The forces of the cosmic Christ descend and accumulate in the bread and wine. When the devotees eat bread and wine they bring to their organism and their internal bodies the Christic atoms, with which our magical powers are awakened. This rite was verified by Jesus at the last supper at the home of Joseph of Arimathea. This rite was celebrated by the Gnostics in the catacombs of Rome at the time of Nero; This is the true and legitimate Mass of the Christ Jesus that was hidden for 20 centuries. 

"And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many." —Mark 14: 22-23-24

Gnostic Mass

I approach the altar of God, which edifies the mind and lights the splendor of an eternal youth.

The priest facing the devotees exclaims: Chrestos be with ye!

Acolyte: May He illuminate thy Spirit.

Priest facing the altar exclaims:  Come, oh hallowed Word! Come, oh sacred name of the Chrestos force! Come, oh sublime energy! Come, oh divine mercy! Come, supreme Seity of the Most High!

Priest facing the devotees traces a cross on his forehead and another one on his chest. Then he traces a circle beginning at the center of his forehead, passing around his left shoulder, sexual organs, right shoulder and up to his forehead, closing the circle and exclaim.

Chrestos be with ye!

Acolyte: May He illuminate thy Spirit.

Priest facing the altar: Come, Thou, who uncovers the veil of mystery! Come, Thou, Mother of the seven centers, who rests in the harmony of the octave! Come, Thou, who were before the five senses, spirit, mind, sentiment, and reasoning! Allow us, the recently begotten ones, to participate in thine holy grace. Come, oh immaculate holy breath, blow and purify my internal glands where the rhythm of my life exists! Come and guide my disoriented heart so that my pure sentiments flow from that holy fountain!

Priest facing the devotees: Chrestos be with ye!

Acolyte: May He illuminate thy Spirit.

Priest facing the altar: Listen great Seity, Father of everything created, divine Light. O Lord, our redeemer, let the many iniquities which we have committed and the iniquities of those who listen to us visibly or invisibly, be forgiven, so that all of us can be worthy to partake in the kingdom of justice and be with thee in the immensity of the Light! Bless and give strength to all who follow us since they fulfil the law. Hear me, oh angels! Help me, Father, Father of all fatherhood, infinite cause of everything existent, and give life to this populace! Assist whosoever follows us and grant necessary support to all of them in all the occasions of life so that they may become worthy of thine holy grace. We know thy power and I conjure thee: Come! Come! Come! Forgive all our iniquities, relieve all our pains. Give us a sign here or in the coming days.

Priest advances one step and says: I listen to your testimonies.

In these moments the beneficiaries, the healed stand and they give testimony, relating their experiences in simple phrases. After listening to everyone, the priest place himself again at the altar and says: We are grateful for your testimonies which ye give in good faith. Be comforted! For your errors are forgiven. The supreme power is with us.

Everybody answers: Amen. Amen. Amen.

The following ceremonial practice is from Pistis Sophia, It can be added after a lecture when there is a major religious festivity.

The Holy Sacrifice

Then Jesus, the divine, great Gnostic priest, chanted a delightful song of praise in the great name, and Jesus said unto his disciples: Draw near unto me! And they drew near unto him. Then he turned himself towards the four corners of the world, he extended his quiet look, and uttered the profoundly sacred name: YEW. He blessed them and breathed into their eyes. And Jesus exclaimed unto them: Look above! Now ye are clairvoyant! Then, they raised their eyes to where Jesus was pointing and saw a great, exceedingly mighty Light, which no human being in the world can describe. The great priest Jesus said unto them anew: Look away out of that mighty Light and look towards the other side. Then, they saw a mighty fire, water, wine, and blood.

Here the Priest blesses the bread and wine (grape juice).

And Jesus the great priest proceeded and said unto his disciples: Amen, I say unto you: I have brought nothing into the world when I came, save the fire, the water, the wine, and the blood of redemption. I have brought the fire and the water out of the region of the Light of lights, from there where the Treasury of the Light is found. And I have brought the wine and the blood out of the region of Barbelo.

And after a little while, the Father sent me the Holy Spirit in the form of a white dove. But hear me: the fire, the water and the wine are for the purification and forgiveness of sins.

The blood, on the other hand, was given as a symbol unto me of the human body. This blood I received in the region of Barbelo, of the great power of the universal God. As in me, the Holy Spirit descends towards all souls, and will lead them unto the supreme region of the Light. For this cause I have said unto you: I have come to cast fire on the Earth, that is, I am descending to redeem the sins of the world with fire.

And for this cause Jesus said again:

If ye knew of the great gift of God, and who it is who saith unto ye, “Give me to drink,” you would beg of me, and I would give ye the eternal fountain that is a spring of sweet ambrosia, and there would be in ye a very fountain of water springing up for life.

The priest takes the chalice with his left hand and displays it on high to the devotees, saying:

He took the chalice blessed it, and offered it to everyone, saying: This is the blood of the covenant which was poured out for you to redeem ye of your sins, and for this cause they have also thrust the spear into my side so that from there, from my wound, came forth blood and water.

The priest turns to his right, places the chalice in his right hand.

And the great priest Jesus said unto them: Bring me fire and vine branches. And they brought it to him. He then laid out the offering on the altar, and set down two wine-vessels, one on the right and the other on the left of the offering, and set a cup of water in front of both wine-vessels.

Places the chalice on the altar and with his right hand on high, says: And he laid loaves according to the number of the disciples who were listening unto him. And the great priest Jesus kept himself dressed in white linen garments, which the apostles imitated.

He takes the chalice with his right hand, and says to the devotees: And in your hands, I tell ye, is the number of the name of the Father who is the fountain of Light.

Everybody kneels.

The priest raises his hands in a pleading attitude and says: Hear me, great Seity, O Father, Father of all fatherhood! Divine Light! I.A.O.

Devotees respond: Amen. Amen. Amen.

Priest: Chrestos be with ye!

Acolyte: May He illuminate thy Spirit.

Priest returns to the altar: Come, holy love! Divine, volitive essence! And transform my will, making it one with thine.

Come, supreme power! And descend on those who know the mystery.

Come, excelsior value! And give me the temperance and strength that is needed to penetrate it.

Come, holy silence! that speaks of the power and magnitude that He embraces, and reveal to me the hidden.

Come and discover the mystery for me! Descend on us, holy dove of white plumage. Thou art the Mother of the Twins. Respond, mystic Mother, who only manifests thyself in our works.

Come closer, holy joy of the Heavens, and alight on our heads. Thou bearest the thread of gold that links all of us. Encourage us, the ones who partake in this holy sacrifice of the Eucharist, celebrated in this, thine holy remembrance, to purify and strengthen us.

Help us to receive the Light! Thou who hast now called us towards the faithful ones.

Chrestos be with ye!

Acolyte: May He illuminate thy Spirit.

Everybody stands, and the priest says: I believe in the unity of God, in the Father as an impersonal, ineffable and unrevealed entity who no one has seen, but whose strength, creative potential, has been and is moulded in the perennial rhythm of creation.

I believe in Mary, Maia, Isis, or under whatever name, in the physical force symbolizing Nature, whose conception and childbirth reveals the fertility of Nature.

Acolyte: I believe in the mystery of Baphomet and of the Demiurge, Spirit between God and creature.

Priest: I believe in a superior, transcendental church, maintained in the pure souls, in the White Lodges, represented by the universal fraternity and which has its exponent in the Holy Gnostic Church, ruled by patriarchs, apostles, bishops, and priests.

Acolyte: Our law is: light, love, life, liberty, and triumph.

Priest: Our motto is the-le-ma.

I believe in the communion of purified souls. As the material bread is transformed into spiritual substance, likewise I believe in the baptism of wisdom, which makes real the miracle of making us human. I know and acknowledge the essentiality of my life transcended as a totality without chronological end, that encompasses an orbit outside of time and space.

Devotees: So be it. 

Priest goes to the pulpit or lateral altar and preaches about the gnostic mysteries. After the sermon he return to the altar and facing the cross, he says:

Filled with joy and overflowing with faith, we come to thee, oh cross! Oh holy rose, holy and divine! Thou, who gives the balm for every ulcer. Thou, who encourages the fire that lights life.

Thou, who gives life, offer me thy cross that I recognize as my own. I know thy mysteries, of the sacred mystery that surrounds thee, since thou were bestowed in the world to make infinite limited things. Thine head straightens majestically to touch Heaven, for thou art the symbol of the divine Logos. For in thy structure presides the intersection of the crossed wood that forms thy two arms, like two large hands that extend themselves to frighten away the sinister forces and the inferior powers, so as to unite, in a church of holy fraternity, all human beings of pure and noble heart.

Thy foot, like a spear, is nailed to the ground so that thou can redeem, so that thou can help in thy volitional impulse, all the entities who dwell beneath the ground, within the inferior regions of the world, and who through multiple incarnations can reach the divinity to be reunited eternally in thee.

Oh thou, cross of marvellous destinies, placed by the Highest in the multiplicity of the universe, so that thou art the redemption of mankind!

Oh cross, immaculate beauty who art the trophy of the victory of the Chrestos, who art a magnet of Life, who offers life with thine holy tree, who extends thy roots as giant fingers through the depth of the ground so as to bestow thy fruit in the infinite heavens!

Oh thou, venerable cross! who art the holy gift of the sweet name, as a grapevine that blossoms in the garden of the Lord.

Oh thou, light, divine rose on the cross, who gives thy strength and thy sacred power to those who deserve it in difficult battle, and thou leadest them through the mystical ladder that is extended from earth up to heaven, from the matter up to the Spirit.

Oh holy and blessed cross, redemption is latent in thee, and under thy power and excelsior light all of us shelter ourselves so as to make the offering of this holy sacrifice of the Eucharistic Unction.

Now a moment of meditation while the priest, deacons and devotees are on their knees, then the priest standing offers those who have to participate in the Eucharist, first the bread saying:

This is my body, receive it for your redemption.

This is repeated with each one, while taking the chalice with grape juice or non-alcoholic wine and offering it by saying to each one:

This is my blood, receive it that has been shed, to redeem the world.

The priest will put his right hand on each one's head and says: May peace be with thee, so that thou can partake in the Light.

While they are all on their knees, the priest raises his hands in an attitude of blessing and says:

Receive ye the sign of the cross on your necks and on your lips so that ye can be heirs of the Light. 

All raise their right hands and the priest intones the mantras: I.A.O I.A.O I.A.O.

Thereafter he crosses his hands on his chest and the congregation chant the Tedeum laudamus:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord of Sabaoth.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord of Sabaoth.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord of Sabaoth.

Priest blesses the devotees with the Aaronic blessing and finalizes the ceremony with a chain.

Maundy on Holy Thursday of each year. The priest of each sanctuary will wash the feet of twelve devotees. This maundy relates to the prostatic chakra (the Church of Smyrna); no one can reach the mountain of the transfiguration without having passed through this maundy: on the lines of our feet are written our past reincarnations.

Christ washes our feet with the transmutation of our seminal waters. The prostatic chakra exercises control over the seminal vessels. The maundy symbolizes washing, disintegrating our evils deeds and blemishes of the past, with it we become clean and pure. This naturally represents sanctification or total Christification, later comes the transfiguration and then the astral body shines with glory. These are the mysteries of the third initiation of the mysteries of faith.

Although the genuine teachings of Jesus were obscured and hidden from the public, the time has come for them to be restored and made known.
