THe Grimoire of Pope of Honorius is a blend of Catholicism and the occult. It's about 900 years old. It's the most interesting companion I've
found. Many find it odd that a Pope would blend the Kaballah, Catholocism, Wicca, etc.... If the Catholic Church had the answer for everything then
why delve into these other religions? What need is there?
It's a book that's despised by the educated Jesuits. It's embraced by very few.
But on the other side of the coin, I embrace numerous religons. And respect their rites and recognize their value. There is no duct tape fixall
religon. So immersing yourself in everything has worked well for me.
I'm familliar with the Hermes Trimegristus as well. The Arbatel of Magic. The Black Pullet is interesting as well. Then there is Errores
Haereticorum. If your Latin is strong the Oupnekhat is interesting. Never seen one in English though. A recent addition to the library was the
Secret Grimoire of Turiel. Shemhamphoras is worth looking at as well. One of the most interesting that I've yet to complete is Y-Kim.
But as you know I've been a student of the occult for ages. Hell Catholicism is an occult practise. But I thought the Grimoire of Pope Honorius
would show you that there are some in the Church who don't limit the scope of their studies to Christianity.
Like I've always said, every religon has their own demons and some predate religon all together. The more information you have the more likely you
are to be able to narrow down what your dealing with. But it also can confuse the process.
My 1st love was a heriditary witch. I guess she would best be described as a British traditionalist wiccan. It's also when I 1st came across
After years with her I made my way to Africa and while assisting at some of the Catholic Missions I had the opportunity to research some of the
African Pagan religons. Candomble, Voudoun, Santaria, HooDoo....
I've yet to find a religous belief that I found useless or totally irrelevant. Well, save those idiots at the Church of Satan, Scientologists and
Jehovah's Witness's. Mormonism didn't offer anything useful to me either. But it was interesting.
I've never pigeonholed myself into a religon. I believe in a creationary force in the universe. God, if you will. I also think Jesus Christ was an
excellent teacher and prophet, but I don't place the same attributes on him that the Bible does. Which technically makes me noncatholic.
But I essentially practice my own religon. I believe in what I believe and have yet to encounter anyone who shares those beliefs 100%. But for the
purposes of my work I am as comfortable calling on Jesus as I am Cardiwen, Hanuman or Mait' Carrefour. It simply depends on what is required. But
with the prevelance of Christianity in America, Jesus is by far the most usefull here for exorcisms, prayers of deliverance and cleansings. Just by
virtue of the basic faith the average American has in Christ. And in my area, the Roman rite has the most power due to all of the Catholics. But you
occasionally come across something else. Especially in New Orleans.
What's important is the clients faith in the act and the faith of the practitioner. But more importantly the amount of spiritual energy of the
practitioner. I've seen things forced out through sheer power, which is amazing all things considered.
