Theology & liturgy
Most of the Grand Patriarchs of the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Cross were consecrated Christian Priests in indisputable apostolic successions. Some of them were in charge of religious communities for a number of years.
However, it is worth saying that the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Cross does not segregate religiously and welcomes candidates regardless of their beliefs. Nevertheless, an initiatic Order such as ours, heir of the esoteric Christian tradition, has always considered that the teaching of theology is fundamental.
This is why, from the first year of teaching, each course contains a section dedicated to theology. The documents used in these documents come from the historical archives held by the current Grand Patriarch R+C. Some come from ancient Orders of the Temple.
After a few years and after the foundations have been established, more advanced theological studies are offered to the initiates. These studies extensively develop some important doctrinal topics, as well as the study of famous theologians who cannot be ignored.
It should be noted that we do not limit this study to Catholic theology. On the contrary, these teachings include what the temporal power of the Catholic Church has described as heresies. This is essential, as theology can be associated with the study and practice of gnosis.
Besides this intellectual study, the liturgy represents the visible part enacted in the ceremonies. The knowledge of the symbolic tools used in rites, gestures and ritual clothes is fundamental for an initiate. This teaching is given through courses and books provided to members of the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Croix as part of their initiatic journey.
Therefore, this part of the learning is closely linked to the priesthood received in the Archconfraternity of Ieschouah and the degree of Patriarch Rose-Cross.
This coherent organization will allow the initiate to reach the heart of the authentic Rose-Cross tradition and accomplish his mission in the circle of the Rose-Cross.
