Might Tucho Fernández’s "Sex-Magic" Mystical Passion & 'Will to Power" Amoris Laetitia "share the same presuppositions" as Occultist Crowley which could be "the source of the Sexual Abuse Scandal"?

In a Stream interview, Catholic philosopher John Gravino explained how Francis and his allies reject the apostolic Jewish-Christian approach to sanctifying and disciplining the human sexual urges, in favor of a Freudian “hydraulic” view of sexuality as a kind of crude steam power that needs to be vented out of some duct or other, lest it explode. Such approach is mechanistic and degrading, but at least it doesn’t traffic in sorcery.

Ashenden shows how what we face today comes from an even darker place than Freud’s pseudo-scientific scribblings. It comes from a weird tradition that began in the 15th century (though it pretended to tap into ancient traditions going back to Egypt):

One of the most alarming aspects of the way in which Fernández has written, is that he shares the same presuppositions about sex as esotericists and those who practice (dark) magic. Sex for them is a means of instrumentation of the divine, as it is for Fernández; in esotericism – it is claimed – sex facilitates a direct experience of the Godhead. The Christian riposte to the esoteric tradition is that it mistakes deity. 

 

It was during the Renaissance that we find the developments of this basic idea in thinkers who inhabited the crossover between Christianity, science and magic that the alchemical world produced. Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) and Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) posited that the erotic principles of attraction, the occult powers of magic and the dynamic structure of the universe are all part of a single continuum.JOHN ZMIRAK

Dr. Gavin Ashenden, an associate editor of the Catholic Herald, says "Crowley’s occultism... share the same presuppositions about orgasm, sexual ecstasy and the divine that we are presented with in [Cardinal Víctor Manuel] Fernández’s Mystical Passion":

But further along the spectrum of magic and sex, at the very much darker end, we arrive at the notorious practioner Aleister Crowley. He posited: “Mankind must learn that the sexual instinct is…ennobling. The shocking evils which we all deplore are principally due to the perversions produced by suppressions.” 

The details of Crowley’s occultism, which included the deliberate desecration of places and people using sex that incorporated children and animals, are unhelpfully shocking. It’s also shocking that this esoteric and occult world share the same presuppositions about orgasm, sexual ecstasy and the divine that we are presented with in Fernández’s Mystical Passion.

The Torch of the Faith website stated "Amoris Laetitia is not so much revolutionary as subversive... faith and reason give way to mere party spirit. Truth falls to mere will to power": 

We are carefully and gradually reading through Mr. Ferrara's own studious critique of Amoris Laetitia at The Remnant. It must be said that what we have read of his analysis so far reveals it to be as meticulous as it seems accurate. It is difficult for an honest person to disagree with his thesis that Amoris Laetitia is not so much revolutionary as subversive...

... It seems that orthodox Catholics are gradually being required to leave behind their Catholic beliefs, and even the use of their reason and logic, in order to smile at the ''new clothes'' of a naked emperor and rejoice with everyone else.

In such a situation, faith and reason give way to mere party spirit. Truth falls to mere will to power." [http://www.torchofthefaith.com/news.php?extend.1294]

Carrie Tomko wrote that "'will to power' is the heart and soul of occultism... The occult magician's mindset was coined by Aleister Crowley: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law":

THERAPEUTIC RELIGION

by Carrie Tomko

 
Can the source of the sexual abuse scandal be traced to a shift in our spirituality? One writer, at least, believes it can.

Fred Martinez reports in

Nietzsche and the Church Scandals


 at the Catholic Educator's Resource Center website that



Therapeutic approaches have a basic assumption that is not Christian. Their starting point is not the Christian worldview...The denial of original sin and personal sin is, in large part, behind the headlines of the Boston catastrophe and other dioceses. ...

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America--family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values--they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong--only opinions of the self and its will to power.

That "will to power" is the heart and soul of occultism. There is a reason why so many of the women religious talk about "empowerment" and seek ordination. Once you throw out God, all that is left is you. Answering to no one puts you totally in control. What does a person want when they are totally in control but that their own will be done. The person becomes a sort of mini god in their own mini universe. The occult magician's mindset was coined by Aleister Crowley: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." It's a short hop from the desire to the deed, and the deed is accomplished, or at least attempted, in magic rituals which intend to procure the will of the magician. The pinnacle magic ritual experience is evocation. The accomplished magician brings a spirit into materialization where the sensory response validates that the will has been accomplished. If a spirit is at your beck and call, you are a success.

This thinking is contrary to the way God made us. It is not unusual for the magician to be driven into insanity through this process. Spirits tend to have a mind of their own and power over the magician, as many have learned a little too late. The spirit the magician intended to own ends up owning him.

As chaos magician Peter J. Carroll puts it:

Works on the level of trance, vision, imagination and dream. It opens the magician's subconscious by negating the psychic censor with various techniques. The magician faces considerable danger on this level and may have frequent recourse to sorcery techniques or banishing ritual if it threatens to obsess or overwhelm him.

In spite of the danger, Catholics are being taught at retreats to attempt a sort of trance state by seeking to silence their mind in meditation. Guided meditation can be found in Catholic courses on spirituality. Can Catholics be sure that the benefits outweigh the risks?

The Martinez article continues, quoting philosopher Allan Bloom's summation of Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy as it appears in Bloom's book THE CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN MIND:

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love of truth but intellectual honesty characterizes the proper state of mind. Since there is no truth in the values, and what truth there is about life is not lovable, the hallmark of the authentic will is consulting one's oracle while facing up to what one is and what one experiences. Decisions, not deliberations, are the movers of deeds. One cannot know or plan the future. One must will it.

This is the occult mindset--the thinking behind the occultism of Carl Jung and Roberto Assagioli--the thinking that is derived from a source other than the Trinitarian God. Martinez continues:

Unlike the Christian worldview, the therapeutic starting point is that the individual must overcome personal unconscious forces, in Freud, and in Carl Jung the person must unite to the collective unconscious, which is shared by all humans.

In both cases, the therapist assists his client to change himself to 'become his real self.' Forgiveness and returning to God are not needed. What is needed are not God and His Forgiveness, but a therapist assisting a self to reach the fullness of its self.

Freud, under the influence of Nietzsche, moved psychiatry away from the mechanistic and biological to the previously "unscientific" model of the "symbolic language of the unconscious."

Freud's pupil Carl Jung took the symbolic language of the unconscious a step further.

Whether you call it the "collective unconscious" or the "Akashic Record," and even if you seek knowledge by channeling a spirit, ultimately the ability to remake yourself (or renew yourself) is contained within you.

Martinez says that

Christian therapist Leanne Payne considers Jung "not a scientist, but a post-modernist subjectivist. Jung's active imagination therapy is hostile not only to the Judeo-Christian worldview, but to all systems containing objective moral and spiritual value. Within this world the unconscious urge becomes god. What the unconscious urge wants is what is finally right or moral. These psychic personae [complexes] are literally called 'gods' (archtypes); and so an overt idolatry of self follows quickly."

Within the modern French Nietzschean schools of thought, a type of Jungian unconscious urge is replacing the old existential conscious self who chooses. The post-modernist is moving from the idolatry of self to the idolatry of autonomous inner "beings" that, according to Payne, are similar to pagan "gods."

Since Eden nothing has changed. The serpent still whispers; and like Eve, sometimes we listen. The conscience can be silenced so that the only voice we hear is the voice of our own sinfulness. This voice of sinfulness was let loose without brakes when psychology invaded religion. Martinez writes:

By using Christian symbols and terminology, Jungian spirituality has infiltrated to a large extent Christian publishers, seminaries, even convents and monasteries.

There is little doubt that it has infiltrated the parish renewal programs. Martines continues:

Many Christians are using Jung's active imagination as a method of prayer. Psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover, D.D., thinks this is dangerous "because this fantasy life has no moral underpinnings, because it helps to reinforce an experience of autonomous inner 'beings' accessible via the imagination, and because it is a defense against redemptive suffering, it easily allies with and quickly becomes a Gnostic form of spirituality with powerfully occult overtones.

The concept of self-actualization or "will to power" that has become commonplace in the retreats and renewal programs offered throughout Catholicdom are precisely the opposite in concept from Christ's prayers in Gethsemene: "Lord not my will but thine be done."


We all must choose whether we will be in control or whether we will surrender to the One who made us. This is the nature of free will which our Maker gave us. If we choose to reject Him, there are other powers to seek; and those powers are eager for our business. There is a reason why we are repeatedly warned in Scripture to leave occult powers alone. God knew the temptation to self-will would be hard to resist. His experience with His first creation, the angels, demonstrated it. Today as the Christian worldview fades into memory in many places, we are seeing it demonstrated in our day to day encounters, and we have seen it demonstrated in the Catholic priesthood with devastating results.

"Do not go to mediums or consult fortune-tellers, for you will be defiled by them. I, the Lord, am your God." Lev. 19:31

"Let there not be found among you anyone who immolates his son or daughter in the fire, nor a fortune-teller, soothsayer, charmer, diviner, or caster of spells, nor one who consults ghosts and spirits or seeks oracles from the dead. Anyone who does such things is an abomination to the Lord, and because of such abominations the Lord, your God, is driving these nations out of your way." Deut. 18:10-12

"For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Do not let your prophets who are in your midst and your diviners deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams which they dream. For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them.' declares the Lord." Jer. 29:8-9 [Incidentally, this passage has been eliminated from the NAB. I checked three different Bibles and it was not there. I had to turn to a Protestant New American Standard Bible to find it even though it is referenced in the CCC.]

"Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the last times some will turn away from the faith by paying attention to deceitful spirits and demonic instructions through the hypocrisy of liars with branded consciences." 1 Tim. 4:1

"Beloved, do not trust every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ come in the flesh belongs to God, and every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus does not belong to God. This is the spirit of the antichrist that, as you heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world." 1 John 4:1-3

"I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet. These were demonic spirits who performed signs. They went out to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle on the great day of God the almighty." Rev. 16:13-14

If those passages do not convince, read Ezekiel 13.

We have been warned.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! [
https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2021/01/what-is-solution-to-crisis-of-our-time.html]

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis’s Amoris Laetitia.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

 –  LifeSiteNews, “Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers,” December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
