Subtitle: When Roman Catholic doctrine states that Jesus Christ must obey the priest and come down from Heaven to go on the altar, this doctrine is identical to Witchcraft!

Once again, we have conclusive proof, within Roman Catholic doctrine, that Roman Catholicism is identical -- repeat, identical -- with Witchcraft. In this instance, the Catholic teaching regarding the power of the priest over supernatural forces (Jesus Christ) is identical to the Witchcraft teaching regarding the power the witch has over supernatural forces [demons]. In both cases, the supernatural being is FORCED to do that which they do not want to do, i.e., to serve the human who has control over him.

In other words, the Catholic priest is just a witch dressed in different clothes!

Let us first examine Roman Catholic belief. Once again, we are quoting from Roman Catholic sources. The first source to be quoted is from St. Thomas, reprinted in the Catholic book, "Faith of Millions", John O'Brien, Ph.D., LL.D., 268-269, "nihil obstat" by Rev. T. E. Dillon-Censor Librorum and "imprimatur" by John Francis Noll, D.D. -Bishop of Fort Wayne.

" Power of Consecrating: The supreme power of the priestly office is the power of consecrating. 'No act is greater,' says St. Thomas, 'than the consecration of the body of Christ.' In this essential phase of the sacred ministry, the power of the priest is not surpassed by that of the bishop, the archbishop, the cardinal or the pope. Indeed it is equal to that of Jesus Christ. For in this role the priest speaks with the voice and the authority of God Himself. WHEN THE PRIEST PRONOUNCES THE TREMENDOUS WORDS OF CONSECRATION, HE REACHES UP INTO HEAVENS, BRINGS CHRIST DOWN FROM HIS THRONE, AND PLACES HIM UPON OUR ALTAR TO BE OFFERED UP AGAIN AS THE VICTIM FOR THE SINS OF MAN."

"It is a power greater than that of monarchs and emperors: it is greater than that of saints and angels, greater than that of Seraphim and Cherubim. Indeed it is greater even than the power of the Virgin Mary. For, while the Blessed Virgin was the human agency by which Christ became incarnate a single time, THE PRIEST BRINGS CHRIST DOWN FROM HEAVEN, AND RENDERS HIM PRESENT ON OUR ALTAR AS THE ETERNAL VICTIM FOR THE SINS OF MAN - NOT ONCE BUT A THOUSAND TIMES! THE PRIEST SPEAKS AND LO! CHRIST THE ETERNAL AND OMNIPOTENT GOD, BOWS HIS HEAD IN HUMBLE OBEDIENCE TO THE PRIEST'S COMMAND."

"Of what sublime dignity is the office of the Christian priest who is thus privileged to act as the ambassador and the vicegerent of Christ on earth! He continues the essential ministry of Christ; he teaches the faithful with the authority of Christ, he pardons the penitent sinner with the power of Christ, he offers up again the same sacrifice of adoration and atonement which Christ offered on Calvary. No wonder that the name which spiritual writers are especially found of applying to the priest is that of 'alter Christus.' FOR THE PRIEST IS AND SHOULD BE ANOTHER CHRIST" (Faith of Millions, John O'Brien, Ph.D., LL.D., 268-269)("nihil obstat" by Rev. T. E. Dillon-Censor Librorum and "imprimatur" by John Francis Noll, D.D. -Bishop of Fort Wayne). Emphasis added.

No greater abomination is possible than the statement, above, detailing the Roman Catholic doctrine concerning the supposed power of the priest during Mass or Communion. We wish to point out that this belief is identical to the belief of a witch!!

In Witchcraft, the attraction to a person to learn the arduous and dangerous art of the Craft is the belief that, once the witch speaks the right incantations, and has made the correct physical preparations, a demon must materialize into this dimension and must do the bidding of the witch. Even if he does not want to obey, the demon must obey! This is identical to the belief St. Thomas articulated, above! Listen again to that part of St. Thomas' writing.


Obviously, Jesus Christ would not want to go through the agony of the cross again, with all its shame, pain, and separation from the Father. Therefore, when Jesus supposedly "bows His head" and obeys the priest to come down once again to the altar, He is doing something He really does not want to do. But, He must, because the priest has pronounced the right incantations [the Mass, for example] and He has made the correct physical preparations. Therefore, Jesus must come down to the altar to be sacrificed again.

This belief is identical to standard Witchcraft. The only significant difference is that the Witch has to very carefully bring the demon into this dimension, because the demon is going to materialize cursing, spitting, and fighting, whereas Jesus is pictured as coming into our realm in a loving manner. In fact, the Witch has to carefully prepare a 9-foot circle on the ground or the floor, and the Witch must be very careful not to step outside the circle, nor allow any of the members of the coven to do so. If anyone steps outside the circle, they step outside their protection and will suffer instant death at the hands of the demon. The only reason the Catholic priest does not have to stay inside a circle, and does not have to have members of the congregation inside the same circle is that the Catholic practice of Witchcraft is symbolic whereas the Witch's practice is very real.

Let us briefly examine St. Thomas' words of blasphemy that the Catholic priest forces Jesus to come down on the altar to be sacrificed "NOT ONCE BUT A THOUSAND TIMES". As we stated in RC113, "Mass Shown To Be Unbiblical", God adamantly declared that Jesus Christ was only to be sacrificed ONCE AND FOR ALL!! We quoted several Biblical texts from a Roman Catholic Bible in RC113, but we want to quote one of them again. Listen:

"...Jesus [also] became the guarantee of an [even] better covenant...He has no need, as did the high priests, to offer sacrifice day after day, first for His own sins and then for those of the people; He did that once for all when He offered Himself". (Hebrews 7:22, 27; The New American Bible, Catholic Bible Press, 1986)

Time and time again, the writer to the Hebrews reiterates that Jesus Christ was sacrificed ONCE AND FOR ALL for our sins. God the Father made a special point to demonstrate this reality in the life of Moses.

In Exodus 17:5-6, God commanded Moses to strike a rock so that water would come gushing out to provide critically needed water to the Israelites and their animals. Centuries later, the Apostle Paul would state that "this rock was Jesus Christ" [1 Corinthians 10:4]. However, later, in Numbers 20:7-8, God commanded Moses to again bring water out of a rock, but this time, God told Moses to "speak" to the rock. However, Moses did not obey God by speaking to the rock; rather, he struck the rock to bring forth the water, which did flow to supply the needs of the people and their animals.

However, God was mightily displeased with Moses, as we read in Numbers 20:11-12. Why was God so displeased with Moses for striking the rock rather than speaking to it? After all, Moses' disobedience seems very slight and not at all significant enough for God to punish Moses by not allowing him to go into the Promised Land. God was mightily displeased for two reasons.

First, Moses sought to take credit for the water pouring out of the rock.

Secondly, God was giving us an example that the future Messiah [Jesus Christ, the Rock] was not to be struck more than once! Jesus was STRUCK on the cross for our sins, providing a Substitutionary Sacrifice for our sins. But, Jesus was to be STRUCK ONCE AND FOR ALL!

God is so angry with anyone or any "church" that seeks to strike Jesus more than once that He issued the following warning to the writer to the Hebrews. Listen carefully, as your eternal soul is at stake here.

"For it is impossible in the case of those who have once been enlightened ... and then have fallen away, to bring them to repentance again, since they are recrucifying the Son of God for themselves and holding Him up to contempt". (Hebrews 6:6; The New American Bible, Catholic Bible Press, 1986)

From a Roman Catholic Bible, we find these words of warning. As long as you are continually recrucifying Jesus Christ on your altars, you cannot be saved! Only Satan would want to defame Jesus by crucifying Him again and again, for the cross represented Satan's only victory over Jesus, a temporary one at that [Read RC113 for full details of this shocking truth].

Under the guise of pious, and Christian, words, the Catholic priest recreates Satan's temporary victory over Jesus thousands and ten thousands of times! Satan must be laughing all the way to Hell. But, more importantly, no Catholic adherent can be saved as long as they partake in these infamous and blasphemous ceremonies! Your eternal soul is further damned every time you attend a Mass or a Communion.

But, you say, perhaps this shocking doctrine that the priest has the same power as witches to bring the supernatural into our dimension against his will is not believed today. St. Thomas, after all, lived a long time ago, and the Roman Catholic Church has changed much since then. If that is what you believe, let us quote another Catholic source, much later than St. Thomas.

"...The Consecration reproduces and extends the MYSTIC MEMORIAL of the Last Supper
when Jesus, who was facing betrayal and death, freely offered his Body and His Blood
for the redemption of mankind. In this lies the essence of the Mass ... Christ, therefore, is seen to be the author of the form, the actions, the very words of the Consecration. In this moment, THE PRIEST QUITE LITERALLY BECOMES CHRIST HIMSELF; HIS OWN PERSONALITY IS BLOTTED OUT; IT IS ABSORBED IN THAT OF THE EVERLASTING PRIEST WHO IS, AT ONE TIME, THE OFFERED VICTIM AND THE SUPREME OFFICIANT."

"For this reason it is Our Lord's own movements, as reported by the Gospel which determine what the priest does: just as the Master did, the celebrant now raises his eyes on high; as Jesus blest the bread, so does he...the words, too, which the celebrant says are words used by Jesus, 'those great and wondrous words,' as Athanasius called them, those words which in their simple directness, offer a contrast to the rich formularies wherein they are enshrined. It is as though God would show that He has no need for a multiplicity of verbiage."

"Nevertheless, what we have in the liturgical formularies is no merely textual reproduction of the evangelical account: something has been added in the course of the centuries. Such are certain adjectives, as those which describe the hands of Our Lord as sanctas ac venerabiles (holy and worthy of respect), or the word (inspired by Psalm 22:5) by which the chalice is called praeclarum, or glorious ... Since the medieval period we find, in the midst of the consecratiory formula for the wine, the words: Mysterium fidei, the mystery or sacrament of faith. Their meaning is that here shines forth the essence of the Christian faith for now truly, really , substantially (such as the Tridentine terminology), the bread and the wine are become the Body and the Blood of Jesus Christ" ("This Is The Mass", Daniel-Rops, Sheen, Karsh, Hawthorn, "nihil obstat" by Joseph H. Brady, S.T. D. Censor Librorum, "imprimatur" by Thomas A. Boland, S.T.D. Archbishop of Newark, 100).

In fact, this modern American book, following, was meant for priests only, which is why many of the words are in Latin.

"Our Lord was immolated on Calvary. He offers Himself again every morning at the
altar by the hands of His priest. The sacrifice of the Mass is essentially the same
as that of the Cross. What share has the priest in that sacrifice ? Where does he
find the victim ? Ubi est victima, could he, like Isaac of old, ask when ascending
the steps of the altar. Listen : Hoc est corpus meum, says this priest bending over a
small piece of bread. What happens? Agnoscite quod agitis: The divine Victim is
present: Ave verum corpus! 'Hic est calix sanguinis mei,' continues the priest: We
adore the divine Victim sacrificed to God. Agnoscite quod agitis. The priest says:
Hoc est corpus meum, he has to say it for the validity of the consecration. Meum! But
it is not he who says these words; his voice indeed we hear, but he is only the
instrument of the Sovereign Priest: our Lord speaks through His minister. The glory
of this minister consists precisely in disappearing, in allowing Jesus to act through
his personality: Sacerdos alter Christus.This Christ now offering Himself to God by
the hands of the priest is the same Christ who is in heaven. Same happiness, same
power, same majesty. He is performing the same acts, offering the same adorations,
the same thanksgiving, the same prayers. He, the object of the beatitude of the
elect, is now in the hands of the priest: Agnoscite quod agitis. But if really the
priest causes our Lord to be present on the altar, if he offers Him, whilst Jesus is
now in heaven, have we not to conclude that it is from the very bosom of the Father
that the priest draws this divine Victim? Agnoscite quod agitis" (Our Priesthood,
Rev.Joseph Bruneau, S.D.D., 149-151)("nihil obstat" by M.F. Dinneen, S.S.,D.D.
-Censor deputatus, "imprimatur" by James Cardinal Gibbons -Archbishop of Baltimore,
"Re-Imprimatur" by Michael J. Curley -Archbishop of Baltimore).

Did you notice the words used in this section, above, " Hoc est corpus meum"? This is the phrase which Satanists later changed slightly to "Hocus Pocus"!

How important are spoken words in the ceremony to the Witch during the ceremony during which he is forcing the supernatural demon to appear and to do his bidding? The answer is, the spoken words are most important, for without them, the Witch is impotent at best and dead at the hands of the demon in the worst case scenario!

Furthermore, the most preferred language of the Witch is Latin, for it is in Latin that the most potency is achieved. Listen to the testimony of a former Satanist, Doc Marquis. "Catholicism and witchcraft are one and the same ... Until recently, most of the rites of witchcraft were said in Latin. Even in certain cult circles, many of the rituals are still said in Latin. Why was it, when the witches stopped using Latin as much as they did, about 20 years ago, that the Catholic Mass was stopped being orated in Latin? Today, it [the Mass] is spoken primarily in American English, the same way the witch's mass is held." ["Secrets of the Illuminati", by Doc Marquis, USCCCN NATIONAL CLEARINGHOUSE ON SATANIC CRIME IN AMERICA, Page 214].

Notice that the words which Catholic theologian Joseph Brady says were added over the centuries are words in Latin! Doc told me personally that liturgical ceremonies said in Latin possess much greater inherent power than if they were said in any other language on Earth, including English! For this reason, witches will hold their most secret ceremonies in Latin, even today!

But, the bottom line of revelation from Doc Marquis, former Black Magick Satanic priest, was simply, "Catholicism and witchcraft are one and the same".

Now, please allow us to share some of the other similarities between the ceremonies of Witchcraft and Roman Catholicism, drawing again from Doc Marquis' book, ["Secrets of the Illuminati", above:

 Altar -- the altar is central to the Mass. Like the altar in Witchcraft, the Catholic altar is used to celebrate the "Mysteries" of the Mass. In Witchcraft, altars are used for two basic reasons. 1) Practice certain metaphysical rites. Whether the rite is the casting of spells or a ceremony dedicated to occult deities, the altar in Witchcraft holds the "tools" of Magick. 2) Practice sacrifice, either animal or human.

 Roman Catholic Human Sacrifice -- Of course, the Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation ensures that a human sacrifice is committed during every Mass! In this terrible doctrine, Jesus Christ is supposedly forced down from Heaven to be sacrificed again. However, instead of being sacrificed on a cross again, Jesus is sacrificed on an altar just as pagan as the altar of the Satanist! Where does it say in the Bible that Jesus was ever to be sacrificed on an altar? Nowhere! Instead, Old Testament prophecies state that Messiah was to be "lifted up" on a "tree" [Deuteronomy 21:22-23; Psalms 22:1, 6, 16; Zechariah 12:10], to be sacrificed for the sins of the many! Thus, Satan wins again, because the cross is central to our Salvation [Romans 3:24-25; Ephesians 2:16; Colossians 1:20; 2:14]. By placing Jesus on an altar, the Catholic Church de-emphasizes the cross, replacing it with a pagan altar.

 Chalice -- Catholic author, Brady, quoted above, mentions the chalice as "glorious", and in a few moments you will understand to whom it is "glorious". In Witchcraft, the chalice is used in a very special manner. "When a witch does a human sacrifice, after the victim's throat is sliced open, the spilled blood will be collected in a chalice, just as the Catholics do, except that the witch's chalice holds the real thing." [Marquis, page 209].

Of course, the chalice for the Roman Catholic IS filled with real blood, isn't it? Through the doctrine of Transubstantiation, the priest causes the wine to change into Jesus' real blood! Don't you see, without the doctrine of Transubstantiation, the Roman Catholic priest cannot carry out the same ceremony as witches carry out; however, with the doctrine of Transubstantiation, the Catholic priest is performing the same human sacrifice as is the Black Magick witch! Now, you can understand why it is that Transubstantiation is so critical to the Roman Catholic Church, and why she defends it so desperately.

 Candles -- used by both the Roman Catholic Church and witches during their ceremonies.

 Incense -- Catholic priests will "take a philter, or incense burner, walk around the altar, and then wave it out toward the crowd with an invocation. Afterward, it will be put away. Not only will witches use incense but they will consecrate their altar and their fellow witches in the exact same manner that the Catholics do." [Marquis, page 212] Additionally, incense is used as an agent of purification. [Ibid., page 216]

 Bells -- In the Roman Catholic service, bells are baptized and are used by altar boys assisting the priest during the ceremony. "Bells are another tool used by witches. When the bells are sounded, they are supposed to send out metaphysical soundwaves to the gods who will attend and listen to the service. The bells of the Catholic Mass are usually attended by the altar boys. Altar boys are the personal assistants of the priest. In occult circles, the high priest or priestess also has such attendants. There is no difference." {Marquis, pages 212-213]

 Wands for Blessing -- "Have you ever noticed that, when the Pope, Cardinal, or priests want to give a huge blessing, they will take out a golden scepter or wand, dip it in holy water, and then wave it on the people?

"Wands are nothing new in the occult. When a witch wants to direct his power, he can do it by means and use of wands. He can also use it to consecrate a circle with a pentacle inside. This is supposed to keep all summoned demonic forces under control." [Marquis, page 215]

 Holy Water -- Catholic priests consecrate Holy Water by mixing salt with the water and them praying over it. Every object and every Catholic who is touched by this Holy Water is supposed to be blessed.

A Witch will purify himself and all his instruments by mixing water with salt and then praying over it. Here is one part of the ceremony used to consecrate a witch's knife, or athame. "May the Sacred Water and the smoke in the Holy Incense drive out any impurities in the knife, that it may be pure and cleansed, ready to serve me and my gods in any way I desire. So mote it be." [Marquis, page 217]

"The main point is, that a witch's holy water is made up in the same fashion as that of the Catholic priest. Please keep in mind that everything we have talked about, concerning the Catholic Mass, is what is done in a witch's mass ... Witches have had all this for thousands of years." [Marquis, page 217]

 The Host -- The round wafer supposedly turns into the actual body of Jesus Christ, according to the Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation. Of course, we know this cannot ever really happen, because the Bible expressly forbids the eating of human flesh! However, this mystical Catholic doctrine was declared by Pope Honorius in 1220 A.D. This round circle of bread bears the three letters I.H.S. Contrary to what Catholics say this means, I.H.S. stands for the Satanic trinity, Isis, Horus, and Semiramis. [Marquis, page 219]. An occult book has this brief statement to be made in support of Marquis' statement. "In fact , for all that these three letters are in wide use within churches, the device really belongs to the magical tradition ..." ["Magic Symbols", by Frederick Goodman, Brian Todd Publishing House, Ltd., page 33].

For that matter, the very round shape of the host dates back to Antiquity, to the Egyptian Satanists! They devised the round shape to honor their Sun God, whose name was "Ra". God cursed Sun God Ra in His judgment of Egypt in Exodus 10:21-23. Therefore, this cursed doctrine of Transubstantiation even uses a cursed pagan round wafer!

 Both Witchcraft and Catholicism celebrate the five basic elements. The occultist symbolizes these five elements on a pentacle, or a five-pointed star. These five basic elements are:

 Spirit -- The spirit of the water god they slay every day

 Water -- The Holy Water they use to bless themselves and to baptize

  Air -- Symbolically used through the incense in their rituals

  Fire -- Used in tangent with the burning of the incense

  Earth -- Literally made up in their water from the bread of the earth and figuratively used as the flesh of their slain deity. [Marquis, page 222]

Now we know why many elements of obvious Paganism exists within the Catholic Church.

Now we know why:

 Pope John Paul II and Pope Paul VI used the Satanic Bent Crucifix during their outdoors and even some indoor celebrations. [See RC100 "Bent Crucifix]. Satanists invented this distorted figure of an emaciated Jesus on a bent cross as a symbol of Antichrist. Therefore, Pope John Paul II is forcing all Catholic faithful to bow before a symbol of Antichrist!

 The Virgin Mary is called the "Queen of Heaven" just as was the Babylonian Virgin Mother, Semiramis. God condemned this worship of the Queen of Heaven in Jeremiah 44:16-29. [See RC109, Queen of Heaven for full details]

 Catholics believe in Purgatory just as have almost all Pagan religions since Babylon! Purgatory continues to be taught, even though the Bible teaches that the souls of the saved are immediately in Paradise upon death [Luke 23:43]. See RC111, RC111a, and RC111b for full details.

 The Satanic New World Order Plan calls the Pope a "proper receptor" to Antichrist [See RC104] and why they have chosen the Pope as the supreme religious leader of the coming global religion of Antichrist. This part of the Plan designates the Pope as the False Prophet of Revelation 13.

 The Catholic Church has rewritten the 10 Commandments so that God's prohibition against worshipping or praying to, an idol, was removed. To keep the Commandments at 10, the Catholic Church then divided the original 10th Commandment into 2 commandments [See RC108].

 The Catholic Church urges its faithful to pray the Babylonian Rosary, even though Jesus Christ personally forbade such praying! [See RC115]

 The Catholic Church has invented all sorts of ways to be saved other than through a simple faith in the perfect and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Scapulars, Sale of Indulgences, and Confession to a human priest all take the place in your heart for the simple truth.

We urge all dear Roman Catholic faithful to take to your inner hearts and mind the words that we have spoken to you in this article. Your ardent zeal for the tenets of Roman Catholicism will not save you when you are participating in a patently false religion. Please take the words of the Apostle Paul to heart, as he addressed the misplaced zealous nature of the poor, misguided Jew who refused to believe in Jesus Christ.

"I bear them witness that they have a certain zeal and enthusiasm for God, but it is not enlightened and according to correct and vital knowledge." [Romans 10:2, Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Commentary]

You are worshipping in the same way. Your zeal is commendable, but it is not according to "correct and vital knowledge". Please turn now to Jesus Christ, and trust in Him and His sacrifice alone for your salvation! The time of the End of the Age is sweeping down upon all mankind like an overwhelming flood, and all false religions will be swept away, along with all adherents. Please do not allow yourself and your loved ones to be among those victims.

Please turn now to our Salvation Page to see how simple and direct Biblical salvation through Jesus Christ alone truly is. Your heart will be set free from sin, and all fear of Judgment and Death will disappear. For the first time, you will be absolutely assured of Heaven, as completely as though you were already there.

For the first time, you will truly understand and appreciate what Jesus meant when He said:

 " And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." [John 8:32]

 " If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.: [John 8:36]



If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that nothing will not hurt you spiritually. You will also know the greatest heart peace that the greatest God can give to one of His own children.
