Our Eucharist represents an alchemical formula that relies on the creative expression of an abstract idea that builds the body that houses Spirit into a formulation of Soul and a leap to immortality. It is that L.V.X. that truly issues from the early dawn of our Universe, as a Rose extending its Divine effulgence into all beings and all things. There is no part of me that is not of the gods! Know this for yourself, and Know Thyself, that you may be called ‘one who knows himself,’ and you will understand the depth of the All.

2 thoughts on “NOVEMBER 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: THE EUCHARIST”
1. The Eucharist is an alchemical ceremony.
1A. It’s name means ‘Thanksgiving’ and implies a feast.
1A1. cf. the American holiday with this name.
1B. Divine energy is involved into material substance, which is then consumed into the body.
1B1. Material cells are then transformed into spiritual cells.
1B1a. The Romans call this transubstantiation.
2. Our Rosicrucian Mass includes a “Eucharist of the Five Elements.”
2A. The Rose and Candle represent the Rosy Cross; the Rose at the heart of the L.V.X.– symbolized by the cross.
2A1. These are consumed by the sense of smell and the sense of touch; thorugh the nose and skin.
2B. The Bread and Wine represent the Body and Spirit, which together, formulate the Soul.
2B1. These are consumed directly into the Body.
2B1a. And with the formulation of Soul, it is made manifest thorugh the sense of hearing.
2B1a1. The Soul always has a voice.
3. The Sacerdotal nature of the ceremony cannot be overstated in its spiritual value.
3A. This light of the Divine and its sacred heart is invoked, as the body and its own spirit is also.
3A1. These are fused into one soul that is made to ‘move’ toward the beloved, Divine.
3B. Overall, the ceremony generates abstract, impalpable powers that put the congregant into contact with the Divine.
3B1. The elements become a super-human mourishment; a heavenly manna and balsam that becomes a ‘elixir vitae’ or blood of the Divine.
4. The origins of the Eucharist are cannibalistic, which may not be as bizarre as it first seems.
4A. The technical term is Anthropophagy.
4B. It is a relatively common practice in the ancient past, as part of an ancestor worship ritual.
4C. We may even carry genetic evidence for this.
4D. We need to differentiate the practice from psychotic behavior.
5. Six major categories of Anthropophagy:
5A. Endocannibalism-consumption of one’s own group.
5B. Exocannibalism-consumption of outsiders.
5C. Mortuary cannibalism-funerary rites, practiced as a form of affection, or an act of renewal or reproduction.
5C1. I remember being with my father when he died and feeling as if his soul merged into mine.
5D. Warfare cannibalism-consumption of enemies to honor brace opponents or exhibit power over the defeated.
5E. Survival cannibalism-consumption of weaker individuals under conditions of starvation; e.g., shipwreck, famine, military seige.
5E1. I remember a famous airplane crash in the 70s that was made into a movie.
5F. Medical cannibalism
5F1. This is both ancient and moder; though the ancients may not have known this.
5F2. We were protected from certain Prion diseases, and may have done this instinctively.
5F3. Today, we derive drugs in modern pharmacology from the pituitary glands.
5F3a. Human growth hormone.
5F4. The vital life force of the blood was consumed, as well as the mother eating the placenta after giving birth.
5F4a. Vampire legends still remember the blood is the life.
5F4b. We still see animals eat the placenta after birth.
6. It seems ancient cannibalism was more about energy transference whereas the modern eucharist has stepped this up to a rite of transformation.
6A. A sacerdotal nature would be consistent with both Anthropophagy and the Eucharist.
6A1. The modern adds both a symbolic and a more conscious understanding.
6A1a. But commemorating the ancient rite adds to the mythos.
