Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

"Thou who art I, beyond all I am, who hast no nature, and no name, Who art, when all but Thou are gone, Thou centre and secret of the Sun, Thou, hidden spring of all things known And unknown, Thou aloof, alone, Thou, the true fire within the reed Brooding and breeding, source and seed Of life, love, liberty, and light, Thou beyond speech and beyond sight, Thee I invoke, my faint fresh fire Kindling as mine intents aspire. Thee I invoke, abiding one, Thee centre and secret of the Sun, And that most holy mystery Of which the vehicle am I. Appear, most awful and most mild, As it is lawful, in thy child!" 

-Liber XV

Liber XV (the Gnostic Mass) is the central ritual, both public and private, of Ordo Templi Orientis and our church Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica (the Gnostic Catholic Church). E.G.C. is dedicated to the advancement of Light, Life, Love, and Liberty in alignment with the Law of Thelema, through the regular service of the Gnostic Mass by its novitiate and ordained clergy, as well as the other ecclesiastical services of E.G.C.'s ordained priests and priestesses. 

Written by Aleister Crowley in 1913 while traveling in Moscow, Russia, the Gnostic Mass is most similar in structure to the Masses of the Eastern Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church, but its symbolism is as old as the earliest human religions and its Mysteries communicate the central principles of Thelema.

All are welcome to attend NOXVLVXON's public performances of the Gnostic Mass, with the knowledge that it is a congregational, participatory ritual. Please feel free to join us for light refreshments and fellowship after the Mass. We look forward to seeing you.

Please feel free to contact the Body Master or the Secretary with any questions about attendance and participation in the Gnostic Mass.


The Creed of the Gnostic Catholic Church 

I believe in one secret and ineffable LORD; and in one Star in the Company of Stars of whose fire we are created, and to which we shall return; and in one Father of Life, Mystery of Mystery, in His name CHAOS, the sole viceregent of the Sun upon the Earth; and in one Air the nourisher of all that breathes.

And I believe in one Earth, the Mother of us all, and in one Womb wherein all men are begotten,
and wherein they shall rest, Mystery of Mystery, in Her name BABALON.

And I believe in the Serpent and the Lion, Mystery of Mystery, in His name BAPHOMET.

And I believe in one Gnostic and Catholic Church of Light, Life, Love and Liberty,
the Word of whose Law is THELEMA.

And I believe in the communion of Saints.

And, forasmuch as meat and drink are transmuted in us daily into spiritual substance,
I believe in the Miracle of the Mass.

And I confess one Baptism of Wisdom, whereby we accomplish the Miracle of Incarnation.

And I confess my life one, individual and eternal that was, and is, and is to come.
