That Fallen Tyrant (A Short Dissertation on the Occult)

Treatise of Occult Activity, Groups and Orders. Backed by Magisterium, Sacred Scripture, Catechetical Works, Theological Support and Authorial Support




“Again, the devil took him to a very high place and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them, And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me. Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan: for it is written, The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and only him only shalt thou serve.” (Gospel of St.Matthew Ch 4:8-10)

Introducing this passage makes one thing very clear: If Christ was tempted by that Ancient Serpent, what makes us humans believe we are exempt from trial? From the very beginning, since the fall, humanity has been sick, sick with the sin of pride. From Lucifer and his apostate angels, to the very age we are in now, pride has been the downfall of many. Holy Mother Church acclaims this, Sacred Scripture exhorts this and Christ hammers the need for humility and dependence on God Almighty alone.

We stand on the foundations of an age devoted to the self, moral relativism, ego, self love and denunciation of the Cross. With this comes the sickly curse of pride, not in the form of a forbidden fruit, no, but in the form of power and prestige, luxury, debauchery and evil. From the very makings of history, the occult, which is defined as; “Supernatural, mystical or magical beliefs, practices or phenomena.” (Webster’s Dictionary) With these descriptions of a disappointingly large sect of beliefs, we have an enemy arrayed against us masquerading as a soothsayer, a healer, mediums, ‘prophets’, wiccans, witches, warlocks, psychics and worshipers of That Ancient Serpent.


Holy Mother Church, has delegated to her children, and as the Mystical Body of Christ, we are to be “In the World, but not of the world.” This is something all of the faithful, all ages, creed, sex, race or culture are called to be. We are called to be warriors, soldiers, priest, prophet and king. In our Baptism, we are made “a new creature.” Quote; “Baptism not only purifies our sins, but also makes the neophyte “a new creature,” an adopted son of God, who has become a “partaker of the divine nature,” a member of Christ and co-heir with him, and a temple of the Holy Ghost.” (CCC Article 1265)

The world has the allure of the flesh and temptation of Sin to all humans. We are all given the choice to take up our cross and follow Our Blessed Lord, or deny Him and take ourselves up to the heights of malicious ecstasy and perdition. With the advent of technology, this is made even more apparent. Pornography, unclean material readily available for children, adults. Blasphemy and sacrilege made manifest through art, music and literature. All these are openings that the demonic make use of, but none more deadly than the occult. Pornography is forgivable, many don’t see it as the scourge it is. Unclean shows, movies, music? Easily given up if the soul learns self-mastery. But to worship the Beast, turn back on God to follow the allure of power? To take part in the worship of demons through pagan, esoteric beliefs? These are the self-giving to the Devil in totality.

I by no means claim academic prowess, or scholarly wisdom. I hope to simply pass on the teachings of smarter, better and wiser souls than I, to help others and inform, to point in the direction of help. That is my goal. To help and inform, to spread the dangers of the occult and the lies of that proud, rebellious serpent. Within these pages, I will use the backings of Magisterium, Sacred Scripture, The writings of the Doctors of the Church at my disposal, Catechetical writings and authorial support from learned demonologists. It is my sincerest hope that if I can help but one person, I’d count myself blessed. May the Love of the Holy Trinity be with all.


Ad Jesum Per Mariam



Part One: Catechetical and Magisterial Support/Scriptural

We approach the avenues of written laws of the Church. What she teaches, what she proclaims and speaks of. First we need to look at what is condemned in the Old and New Covenants, specifically relating to witchcraft, superstition, pagan sects, secret societies and demonic worship in society, culture and our lives. First, let’s see what Sacred Scripture has outlined for us as the Church Militant on earth, during our sojourn in this Valley of Tears.


Let us begin with The Old Covenant; (From the Douay Rheims and Latin Vulgate)


______________



Book of Leviticus:


“Go not aside after wizards, neither ask any thing of soothsayers, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” (Lv 19:31)
“Non declinetis ad magos, nec ab ariolis aliquid sciscitemni ut polluamini per eos. Ego Dominus Deus vester.” (Vulgate Translation Lv 19:31)
__
“The soul that shall go aside after magicians, and soothsayers, and shall be commit fornication with them, I will set my face against that soul, and destroy it out of the midst of my people.” (Lv 20:6)
Anima, qual declinaverit ad mago et ariolos, et fornicata fuerit cum eis, ponam faciem meam contra eam, et interficiam illam de medio populi sui.” (Lv 20:6)

______________



Book of 1 Kings:


“Because it is like the sin of witchcraft, to rebel: and like the crime of idolatry, to refuse to obey. Forasmuch therefore as thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, the Lord hath also rejected thee from being king.” (1 Kings 15:23)
“Quoniam quasi peccatum ariolandi est, repugnare: et quasi scelus idoloatriae, nolle acquiescere. Pro eo ergo quod abjecisti sermonem Domini, abjecit te Dominus ne sis rex.” (1 Kings 15:23)

______________



Book of Deuteronomy:


“When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee, beware lest thou have a mind to imitate the abominations of those nations. Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter; making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observest dreams and omens, neither let there be any wizard.” (Deut 18: 9-12)
“Quando ingressus fueris terram, quam Dominus Deus tuus dabit tibi, cave ne imitari velis abominationes illarum gentium. Nec inveniatur in te qui lustret filium suum, aut filiam, ducens per ignem: aut qui ariolos sciscitetur, et observet somnia atque auguria, nec sit maleficus, nec incantator, nec qui pythones consulat, nec divinos, aut quaerat a mortuis veritatem. Omnia enim haec abominatur Dominus, et propter istiusmodi scelera delebit eos introitu tuo.” (Lv 18:9-12)
__
“Lest perhaps lifting up thy eyes to heaven, thou see the sun and the moon, and all the stars of heaven, and being deceived by error thou adore and serve them, which the Lord thy God created for the service of all nations, that are under heaven.” (Deut 4:19)
“ne forte elevatis oculis ad caelum, videas solem et lunam, et omnia astra cieli, et errore deceptus adores ea, et colas quae creavit Dominus Deus tuus in ministerium cunctis gentibus, quad sub caelo sunt.” (Deut 4:19)

Book of Ezekiel:


“Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold I declare against your cushions, wherewith you catch flying souls: and I will tear them from your arms: and I will let go the souls that you catch, the souls that should fly.” (Ez 13:20)
“Propter hoc haec dicit Dominus Deus: Ecce ego ad pulvillos vestros, quibus vos capitis animas volantes: et dirumpam eos de brachiis vestris, et dimittam animas quas vos capitis, animas ad volandum.” (Ez 13:20)

____________



Book of Genesis:


“For God doth know that in what day you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.” (Gen 3:5)
“Scit enim Deus quod in quocumque di comederitis ex eo, aperientur oculi vestri, et eritis sicut dii, scientes bonum et malum.” (Gen 3:5)

______________________________________________________________________

We see, that from the select passages given above, that Our Father has set aside strict laws against every form of the occult, every divination and sorcery. We know that the old law is not to be ignored, we are not under the Law, but under the Law of Grace. This still does not excuse us to practice any diabolical magick, occult activity or pagan worship. Our Blessed Lord said; “For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one fittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matt 5:18) We as christians have no excuse to worship demons or creation, for creation is not worthy of worship. Worship is due to the Blessed Trinity alone. Let us approach this from the New Covenant as well.

The Gospel of Saint Matthew:


“For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.” (Matt 24:24)
“Surgent enim pseudochristi, et pseudoprophetae: et dabunt signa magna, et prodigia, ita ut errorem inducantur (si fieri potest) etiam electi.” (Matt 24:24)

______________



The First Epistle of Saint John:


“Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. By this is the spirit of God known. Every spirit which confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God. And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and is now already in the world.” (I John 4:1-3)
“Carissimi, nolite omni spiritui credere, sed propbate spiritus si ex Deo sint: quoniam multi pseudoprophetae exierunt in mundum. In hoc cognoscitur Spiritus Dei: Omnis spiritus qui confitetur Jesum Christum in carne venisse, ex Deo est: et omnis qui Jesum, ex Deo non est, et hic est antichristus, de quo sudistes quoniam venit, et nunc jam in mundo est.” (I John 4:1-3)

First Epistle of Saint Peter:


“Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking the whom he may devour.” (I Peter 5:8)
“Sobrii estote, et vigilate: quia adversarius vester diabolus tamquam leo rugiens circuit, quaerens quem devoret.” (I Peter 5:8)

The Book of Galatians:


“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are fornication, uncleanness, immodesty, luxury, idolatry, witchcrafts, enmities, contentions, wraths, quarrels, dissensions, sects, envies, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like. Of the which I foretell you, as I have foretold to you, that they who do such things shall not obtain the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)
“Manifesta sunt autem opera carnis, quae sunt fornicatio, immunditia, impudicitia, luxuria, idolorum servitus, veneficia, inimicitae, contentiones, aemulationes, irae, rixae, dissensiones, sectae, invidiae, homicidia, ebrietates, comessationes, et his similia, quae praedico vobis, sicut praedixi: quoniam qui talia agunt, regnum Dei non consequenter.” (Galatians 5:19-21)

The Book of The Apocalypse


“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Apocalypse 21:8)
“Timidis autem, et incredulis, et execratis, et homicidis, et fornicatoribus, et veneficis, et idolatria, et omnibus mendacibus, pars illorum erit in stagno ardenti igne et sulphure: quod est mors secunda.” (Apocalypse 21:8)

“Beati, qui lavant stola suas in sanguine Agni: ut sit potestas eorum in ligno vitae, et per portas intrent in civitatem. Foris canes, et venefici, et impudici, et homicidae, et idolis servientes, et omnis qui amat et facit mendacium.” (Apocalypse 22:14-15)

“et non egerunt penitential ab homicidiis suis, neque a veneficiis suis, neque a fornicatione sua, neque a furtis suis.” (Apocalypse 9:21)


The End of Scriptural Evidence


______________________________________________________________________

We have seen in both covenants, Old and New, that witchcraft, idolatry of the creation (Paganism), worship of demons and divinations are in clear violation of the Divine Law. From the Law of Moses to the Law of Grace given from Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The Logos. At this point, we will look at what magisterium teaches, from catechetical and saintly support. We will do this with varying sources from the Council of Trent, to the Catechism promulgated by St.John Paul II. Let us begin with the Catechisms. ______________________________________________________________________



The First Commandment commands with sacrosanct authority: You Shall Worship The Lord Your God and Only Him Shall You Serve.

I will be quoting and paraphrasing when necessary from the Catechisms. I will provide necessary citations, as the work being quoted is not mine. I claim nothing, but wish to spread awareness and information.


(CCC 2110) “The first commandment forbids honoring gods other than the one Lord who has revealed himself to his people.” (Pg 568) The worship of anything else outside of the Holy Trinity is perverse and evil. To worship pagan idols, or nature itself is a grievous sin. Creation is not worthy of worship, it may be worthy of being aesthetically beautiful to one’s sight, but nothing more. To replace God with another item, being or belief is idolatry, and idolatry is biblically, a mortal and grievous sin. Polytheism, as the Catechism speaks of, is constantly rejected in scripture. (Pg 568 CCC 2112) It also speaks of not confusing it with false pagan worship, but of a constant temptation to all humans to not put anything above The Eternal Father. When The Israelites crafted the golden idol of the calf, did not the earth open up and swallow them up? Even as they danced and orgied themselves underneath The Father’s Holy Mt.Sinai? The Catechism even adjures us to “Reject all forms of divination.” (CCC 2116).

This means either conjuring up or seeking the aid of spirits or the dead. Even more so the worship of demons to reveal the future, to which we have to reject in totality. Horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of dreams and omens, clairvoyance, and recourse to all mediums are to be rejected. (CCC 2116)


Practices of magic or sorcery, which attempt to take control of occultic power, for the sake of ego and wicked pride, must be shunned and destroyed. There is no excuse for any invocation of powers, spirits or demonic entities for the sake of even carrying out good. It must be shunned. (CCC 2117).


Wicca, witchcraft, white, black magic, Satanism, philosophical or deistic, voodoo, shamanistic practices must be shunned. They oppose the glory due to the Divine Nature and Three Persons of the Blessed Trinity. They advocate the worship of the creation and not the Creator, who is due all honor and glory.

Question 1161 of the Baltimore Catechism is as follows; “How do we, by believing in spells, charms, mediums, spiritists and fortune tellers, attribute to creatures the perfections of God?”


A. “By believing in spells, charms, mediums, spritists and fortune tellers we attribute to creatures the perfections of God because we expect these creatures to perform miracles, reveal the hidden judgements of God, and make known His designs for the future with regard to His creatures, things that only God Himself may do”


This commandment does not forbid images of Christ or His Blessed Mother, and the Saints.

~”But to make and honor images of Christ our Lord, of His holy and virginal Mother, and of the saints, all of whom were clothed with human nature and appeared in human form, is not only not forbidden by this Commandment, but has always been deemed a holy practice and a most sure indication of gratitude.” (Catechism of the Council of Trent, PG 345) It goes on to proclaim; “Against this Commandment all those who sin who have not faith, hope and charity. Such sinners are very numerous, for they include all who fall into heresy, who reject what holy mother Church proclaims for our belief, who give credit to dreams, fortune telling, and such illusions; those who, despairing of salvation, trust not in the goodness of God; and those who rely solely on wealth, or health and strength of body.” (Council of Trent, PG 339).


The Council clearly calls those who place their trust in such heathen and occultic beliefs are considered heretics by their sin. But it is not the hope of God, nor should it be any of our hope, that anyone who is in error should perish. It is our fervent prayer as the Mystical Body of Christ and of heaven, that all should be loved and forgiven, for we are all sinners.


~ Idolatry is the worship of a creature which is regarded as a deity; the sun, fire, animals, images, etc. (The Catechism Explained, by Rev. Francis Spirago, PG 298, 299, 300)


~ Another form of idolatry is when a human being gives up his whole self to a creature.


~The service of idols is high treason against the majesty of God, and the most heinous of sins.


The above beginning intro to each section that Rev. Francis Spirago goes in depth is but a portion of what he delivers. It is truth that it is treason to worship any other creature, spirit or man than the Almighty, Supreme Lord of Creation, The Father of Majesty Unbounded, and His Only Son, Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, The Paraclete.

Theological Avenues of the Church and Authorial Support


We come to the writings of intelligent men who have studied at length with their lives the foundations of theology. I will present as best as I can the questions and answers written down by these saints. Saint Thomas Aquinas and Saint Alphonsus Liguori.


First Article of Question 95 of Volume III of the Summa, Whether Divination is Sin?


~Objection I: “It would seem that divination is not a sin. Divination is derived from something divine: and things that are divine pertain to holiness rather than to sin. Therefore it seems that divination is not a sin.” (PG 1,593 Article One, St.Thomas)


Reply To Objection I: “Divination takes its name not from a rightly ordered state of something divine, but from an undue usurpation thereof, as stated above.” (PG 1594, Article One, Objection One, St.Thomas.)


Article IV: Whether Divination Practiced by invoking the Demons is Unlawful?


~”...On the contrary it is written (Deut. xviii 10, 11) :Neither let there be found among you... anyone that consulteth soothsayers... nor... that consulteth pythonic spirits. I answer that, All divination by invoking demons is unlawful for two reasons. The first is gathered from the principle of divination which is a compact made expressly with a demon by the very fact of invoking him. This is altogether unlawful.” (PG 1596, Summa, St.Thomas, Fourth Article.)


Above, St.Thomas Aquinas clearly states, by the very fact of invoking a demon, which could be through ouija board, divination, soothsaying, pacts, curses, hexes, witchcraft, Wicca, are unlawful and are therefore, a sin before God.

He continues; “The second reason is gathered from the result. For the demon who intends man’s perdition endeavors, by his answers, even though he sometimes tells the truth, to accustom men to believe him, and to lead him on to something prejudicial to the salvation of mankind.” (PG 1596, Summa, St.Thomas, Fourth Article.)


Question 96: Of Superstition and Observances. First Article. ~Whether it is unlawful to practice the observance of the Magic Art.

Objection I: It would seem that it is not unlawful to practice the observances of the

magic art.


St.Thomas, answers beyond the three objections, and for the sake of brevity, will apply it here. “I answer that, The magic art is both unlawful and futile. It is unlawful, because the means it employs for acquiring knowledge have not in themselves the power to cause science, consisting as they do in gazing on certain shapes, and muttering certain strange words and so forth. Wherefore this art does not make use of these things as causes, but as signs; now however as signs instituted by God, as are sacramental signs. It follows therefore, that they are empty signs, and consequently a kind of agreement or covenant made with demons for the purpose of consultation and of compact by tokens.” (PG 1602, St.Thomas, Summa, First Article, Question 96)


St.Thomas clearly explains that the use of divination and occult work is unlawful, therefore a sin before Almighty God. Whether it be a pagan sect, satanism, Wicca, witchcraft, sorcery or voodoo. It is a mortal sin, and an opening to the demonic.


______________________________________________________________________ ______


Let us see what St.Alphonsus has on the writings of pagan superstition, occultic beliefs and idolatry of heathenism.


(Text taken liberally from Moral Theology, Volume II, for the use of academic purposes, although shortened for brevity.)



Dubium V



23. What is a malefice, and how manifold is it?


24. What remedies would it be lawful to apply against a malefice?


23.- “Resp. I. A malefic is a force to harm others, from a pact or cooperation with a demon. It differs from magic because this intends to do wonders that are directed to do harm.” (Moral Theology, Dubium V PG 23, St.Alphonsus)


24.- “Resp. II. Exorcisms and sacraments of the Church, pilgrimages, invocations of the Saints, etc.;” (PG 24 of Moral Theology, St.Alphonsus) {Response One differed from text, so it was inapplicable to the discussion at hand. I omitted it for a reason for brevity. All credit to St.Alphonsus.}


_____


We see in Dubium II, that Saint Alphonsus speaks of divination, and the chief modes of divination, {occult}, activities. I will quote from the text, and instead of writing on a separate page of the response, for the sake of brevity, I will include it under the question, thought the original text offers it on the other page.



Dubium II


On Divination. What is it and how manifold is it?



5. What is divination?

5.-”Resp. I. Divination is, when someone tacitly or expressly invokes the aid of a demon to know matters touching upon or clearly what is going to happen, or otherwise secret or totally unknowable.” (Moral Theology, PG 5, St.Alphonsus, Dubium II of First Commandment.)


As what the learned Saint speaks of, points to all facets of the occult. In the occult, all manner of esoteric knowledge is greedily grabbed upon. Mankind has the innate need to be curious, and this curiosity is not innately sinful, to no degree, but can become sinful when it dredges on matters of the occult or evil. In John LaBriola’s book; “Onward Catholic Soldier,” he describes the New Age practices that open ourselves to demonic assaults, he lists them as; “Prana, crystals, enneagram, reiki, EST, gestalt therapy, primal scream therapy, transactional analysis, centering prayer, Ayurveda, rebirthing, past life regression, etc..” (Onward Catholic Soldier, PG 124, John LaBriola.)

A quote he provides on the next page illustrates this perfectly;


“Modernism is the synthesis of all heresies.” (Pope Saint Puis X)


And on the same page, Mr.LaBriola sums it all together; {“New Age is simply a term for old heresies that have been recycled. It is the offspring of paganism and gnosticism. With Satan as its spiritual leader, the New Age promotes the two lies he espoused in the Garden of Eden, “You certainly will not die,” and “You will be like gods.”} (Onward Catholic Soldier, PG 125, John LaBriola.)

The author even shows the hard to swallow information of the growing New Age practice of Yoga. While the physical aspect of stretching and exercise is something that could be beneficial to the body, the spiritual aspects must be avoided. The soul is encouraged in Yoga to reach a ‘higher plane’ of ascension, to reach Brahma. This is a heresy, which is expressly forbidden by both Scripture and the Catechism, as well as many saints. (Onward Catholic Soldier, PG 124, John LaBriola) Let us return to Saint Alphonsus, and probe the depth of theology regarding the Occult.


Dubium II


On Divination. What is it and how manifold is it?



6. It is one thing with express invocation of a demon, another with tacit invocation.


6.—“Resp. 2. Divination is twofold: one, in which it is an invocation, or an express pact with a demon, and in general is called necromancy, such as when a demon teaches occult matters through soothsayers, the possessed, illusions through persons appearing from the dead or the living, or other signs in the air, water, fire, and mirrors. The other is in which there is an only an invocation or a tacit arrangement, whether interpretive, such as geometric figures of the body, voices, the chattering of birds and familiar things, in which demons usually mingle themselves, knowledge is understood to which these things are disproportionate. St.Thomas, quaest. 95” (Moral Theology PG 5 and Summa, St.Alphonsus and St.Thomas Aquinas, Summa Q 95)


In the same question in St.Thomas’ Summa, Question 95, Pt. II-II Q-95 Art. 3, St.Thomas Aquinas outlines the various forms of divinations, all declared unlawful. {I will provide definitions and answers.}

~Prestigiation: Invoked demons revealing themselves to human sight and hearing by mock apparitions to foretell the future.


~Divination By Dreams: Making use of dreams ~Necromancy: Apparitions or utterances of the dead.


~Pythons: Foretelling the future through living men. ~Geomancy: Signs appearing in wood, iron or polished stone. ~Hydromancy: Signs appearing in water.


~Aeromancy: Signs in the air.


~Pyromancy: Signs appearing in fire

~Aruspicy: Signs appearing in animal entrails sacrificed on the altars of demons.


~Astrologers: Knowing the future based on the observance of the stars and their movements.


~Genethliacs: Those who take notes on the days people are born.

~Augury: Observing the cries of birds or movements of birds, the movements of animals, or the limbs of men.


~Omen: Observations made based words uttered unintentionally, which others twist so as to apply to the future that one wishes to foreknow. (Summa, Pgs 1595-1596, Art. 3 Pt. II-II, St.Thomas)

This is a plethora of knowledge one must have when studying the matters of spiritual warfare. Pulitzer Center, a website, reports that in 2014, estimated that 0.3% of the American population identified as Wiccan or Pagan (https:// pulitzercenter.org/reporting/witchcraft-too-mainstream) Close to one million souls identified as witches, and no doubt the number has grown exponentially over the six years since. This is alarming to one who views such matters in the realm of demonology or the study of spiritual warfare. As we have seen, scripturally, theologically, and catechetically, magic, paganism, divination, sorcery, witchcraft and worship of demons is unlawful, a mortal sin and in the Old Covenant, punishable by death under the Mosaic Law.

{Many in today’s culture will argue that they do not use ‘magic’ for destructive purposes such as hexes, curses and malefice, which is ‘black’ magic. They claim to use it for ‘white’ magic} (Onward Catholic Soldier, PG 129, John LaBriola). This is extremely debatable, as all power they claim to use comes from demonic origin, {whether it be pagan or Neo-pagan in origin}. “While it is true that some change can flow from those who dabble in the occult, e.g. physical healing, solving of crimes, etc., you need to discern from where their power originates. Satan is more than willing to bring about a good if it will lure or lull you into complacency toward him, or worse, complicity with him.” (Onward Catholic Soldier, PG 129, John LaBriola)

In our culture, we see a horrific desensitizing toward the occult. Our children our pushed towards ‘toys’ such as Ouija Boards, Tarot Cards and the like as focusing points as entertainment. Such things are diabolical and unholy, and must be avoided. It is true, that if one were to engage the Ouija Board, nothing may happen. This is true, but why risk the opening of the soul to the demonic or preternatural in the first place? Shows, with their explicit content seek to destroy the family by pushing the normalization of hookup culture. Sex is supreme in our society and has destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives in the process of souls indulging their Ids and pushing away the light of Truth. The destruction of the family, the removal of the father figure from the home, as well as the mother figure from the life. The child is ambushed and indoctrinated to be desensitized to the demonic.

For the lukewarm or irreligious, the thought of the demonic is laughable. Lumped in with Hollywood charlatans and folksy ghost ‘investigations’. They laugh off the biblical support for Lucifer and his apostate angels, the reality of sin and the dangers of witchcraft. Michael Freze, S.F.O, has brought demonology from the view of holy mother Church, into a brilliant investigative view, as he describes the hierarchy of the demonic. (Demonology, The Devil and The Spirits of Darkness, Full Series, Michael Freze, S.F.O, PGs 125-126-127) Below are some of the hierarchy listed by Mr.Freze. I have paraphrased the definitions to some degree, as his work is obviously not mine, and I borrow liberally from my sources.

~Lucifer: The Prideful Serpent, cast out by Saint Michael the Archangel. Chief of the Seraphim, the one cast out of Heaven and chained in Hell.


~Mammon: (Avarice)

~Asmodeus: Prince of the Seraphim as well, tempting men with lust. (Lechery) ~Satan: The Accuser (Anger)


~Beelzebub: Prince of the Seraphim, next unto Lucifer. (Gluttony)


~Leviathan: (Envy), Prince of the same order as Beelzebub, tempting men with

heresies.


~Belphogor: (Sloth)

We see, that in one short excerpt, the hierarchy of demons exist like the one of angels in Heaven. The lukewarm and irreligious refuse to believe in the possibility of primal evil, for they believe truth is subjective, and thus, moral relativism is a cancer upon modern times that must be rejected. Christ is the Truth, The Way and the Life, He is Objective, not subjective. We also learn that such occultic practices open oneself to demonic infestation and oppression.

~Demonic Vexation: Activity present around a location or object.


~Demonic Infestation: Activity in the home, location. The low grade sights or sounds.

~Demonic Oppression: The Person or persons is assaulted, harassed with terrifying or visual phenomena designed to break their will.


~Demonic Possession, Partial Possession: The act of a demonic entity subverting and dominating a person’s will and taking control over one’s body and mind. The Ritual of Exorcism is needed, by a priest with ecclesiastical authority.


~Perfect Possession: A rare, but horrifying moment where the person gives over total control of their psyche, body and soul over to the demonic force invading them. Also, in Luciferianism or Satanism, one willingly gives themselves over to be invaded.

Such examples of Oppression and Infestation are:

~Ocular: Manifestations or apparitions of black masses, faces, body parts, lights. Hallucinations, or horrifying specters, phantasms.


~Auditory: Loud, explosive knocks. Hissing, scratches on walls or ceilings. Yelling, disembodied voices or growls.


~Olfactory: Rotten meat, flesh. Human excrement, blood, sulphuric or ‘egg’ smells. Fire, smoke, decaying or ‘dead’ smells.


~Physical: Scratches, bites, physical assaults, sexual assault from incubi or succubi entities. Thrown down, or flung across the room. Grabbing or pulling.


~Emotional: Depression, suicidal tendencies appearing out of nowhere. Lethargy, exhaustion, anger and extreme mood swings. Impatience, anxiety, fear.

Our world is not the beginning and the end, as so many have ignorantly believed. This life has an ending, and a beginning before the Just Judge of Creation, where all will give an account of their deeds. It is sadly a world hellbent on the road to perdition, moral relativism and occult worship. Our culture, our society, is sick and infected with the sin of pride and greed. Pride to be masters of the self, “To be like gods..” As the Ancient Serpent cried out in defiance; “Non Serviam!” And in doing so, infected humanity with sin and the curse of hell. Now, mankind cries out the same words in defiance to the Creator, worshipping themselves, making idols out of demons and venerating hedonism in the form of “progress”. Souls willingly serve themselves and seek out fame, power, wealth and prestige through the occult. It was my intention to bring to light the dangers of such a culture that does so.

To inform with evidence and the backing of the Holy Catholic Church, and her Saints, the error of the occult and the danger of engaging such dark worship. We must shun the occult, we must turn our faces away from the worship of demons at all costs. We must be on the watch, for the devil always prowls about, seeking the ruin of souls.

Be vigilant, and above all, be kind, love one another and forgive each other. Inform the ignorant, pray for your enemies. May the Love of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost be with you all in these trying times.


Omnia Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam
