The Church of Light and Shadow
#1
Information 
Saw this site posted on Facebook group. Looks like someone attempted to merge Luciferianism and Catholicism, and created a Church out of it. They also use St. Cyprian as their main patron.


Quote:The Church of Light and Shadow exists to forward the work of the Morning Star in the world under both his guises – the Christ and Lucifer.
It is an independent and autonomous Apostolic and Sacramental body, in no way dependent upon the See of Rome, or upon any other See or authority outside its own administration.
The Liberal Catholic Church, our parent church, came into existence as the result of a complete re-organization in 1915 of the Old Catholic movement in Great Britain upon a more liberal basis. This church derived its orders from the mother-see of the Old Catholic movement, the ancient archiepiscopal see of Utrecht in Holland. The Church of Light and Shadow has carefully preserved this succession of Orders. The Church of Light and Shadow recognizes seven sacraments, which it enumerates as follows: baptism, confirmation, the Holy Eucharist, Absolution, Holy Unction, Holy Matrimony, and Holy Orders. To ensure their efficacy to the worshiper, the administration of all sacramental rites is guarded with most care. It has preserved an episcopal succession that is valid, as understood throughout the whole of those churches in Christendom that maintain the apostolic succession as a tenant of their faith.
....

Our Ecclesia carries five principal successions:
  • L’Eglise Gnostique de France, spiritual succession of Jules Doinel, 1890.

  • L’Eglise Johannite des Chrétiens Primitifs, Johannite lineage of Larmenius, received by Jean Bricaud.

  • Eliate Church of Carmel, Carmelite Vintrasienne succession, received by Jean Bricaud.

  • Syrian Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East, Vilatte Succession, received by Patriarch Jean Bricaud, 1913.

  • Igreja Catolica Apostolica Brasileira, received by Patriarch Pedro Freire, 12/27/1970
Additionally, by exchange our Church has received all 27 episcopal lineages of East and West (Catholic-Orthodox, Vetero-Catholic, Coptic, Syro-Malabar, and Ethiopian).
"Good above all good, and Beautiful above all beautiful; peaceful repose, Peace, Concord and Union of all souls; compose the dissensions which divide us from one another, and lead them back to an union with charity, which has a kind of similitude to Thy sublime essence: and as Thou art One above all, and we, one, through the unanimity of a good mind; that we may be found before Thee simplex and not divided, whilst celebrating this mystery; and that through the embraces of Charity and bonds of Love, we may be spiritually one, both with ourselves and with one another, through that Thy Peace pacifying all; through the Grace and Compassion and Love towards man of Thine Only-begotten Son; through Whom, and with Whom is due to Thee, Glory, honour and dominion, with Thy Most Holy Spirit." - Liturgy of Dionysus

Nevada
  • OUR LADY, QUEEN OF WITCHES, MOTHER COVEN – Las Vegas area

That should tell you pretty much all you need to know to stay far, far, far away from these people.

The fact that I "like" a post is not necessarily an endorsement or approval of its content.

Looks like a Gnostic revival, where "the Old Testament God" is supposedly a lower level spiritual being who keeps humans captive in a material prison, and Christ is a higher being who comes to liberate us from his evil grasp: both as the snake in the garden of Eden, and as Jesus Incarnate. Not unprecedented in a time when temporal authority is blatantly evil.
