The latter, by the complexity of her writings, confused me a lot, especially when I tried to study the “Secret Doctrine,” which I totally rejected later; first, because these writings are very difficult to understand, and, secondly, because they are totally irreconcilable with the Catholic faith. A little further, I will explain my bad experience in the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC – a very disappointing experience, for it led me to a great despair and infinite inner emptiness. As the years passed, I realized the futility of all these studies, which led me to know the God of my heart and not the true Christ Jesus, the one true God and Savior of all men. 1. My Experience in the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC One day, as I was visiting my cousin, I met a friend who was a member of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC. We got to know each other quickly, and, after getting along well, she told me about the teachings she had studied for years in that esoteric order which she had to stop because she was no longer interested in them. She has started to meditate and pray. As I was in a deep search for knowledge, I asked her the address of this Order in order to get a first contact with them. Very quickly, I started to receive monographs at a rate of four per month, and I can attest to having studied the teachings for some time, and that the Lord Jesus is never recognized as Savior. And this is a perfect sign that the enemy has managed to ape a doctrine to drive away thousands of persons from the Holy Trinity. After a pilgrimage to a Marian sanctuary, I received many graces from the Blessed Virgin Mary for quitting the Order. Back home, I decided to write to the Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC (which stands for “The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis.” The imperator is the grand master and when someone wants to leave very freely, he or she must notify him in writing. Then I received a letter from him, asking me the reason why I had decided to leave and I answered that I wanted to return to the Catholic Church because I was baptized shortly after my birth. For a long time, I kept on thanking God for releasing me from the chains that bound me to this esoteric order. My brothers and sisters, the Rosicrucians respected my freedom to leave. With them I was part of a group called a “lodge”; this came in addition to the teachings I received at my home, in the form of small booklets, called “monographs.” Some of my friends were disappointed, but, with great charity, I told them that I believed that only Jesus Christ was the savior and everything I could have learned in that order, as the years 2. went by, was nothing but dust for me. We continued to meet us for some time, but pretty soon I followed the path that Jesus Christ had drawn. I felt like I was resurrected by Jesus of Love and I firmly believed He was my Lord and my God, and my only Savior. I felt in my heart how much the Lord Jesus asked me to pray for their repentance, and, with the help of God and the Blessed Mother Mary, I managed to persuade a friend to leave the Rosicrucian Order. As a Catholic Christian, my duty was to help her find the one true God of Life, Jesus Christ, especially as she had forgotten Him a long time ago and had been affiliated with the Rosicrucian Order for a very long time. Since then, she started going back to Church, going to Confession, praying the Rosary; and now she is happy because she believes in her salvation and believes in the infinite Mercy of the Lord Jesus as soon as we shed tears. We both had become prodigal daughters. During my various conferences throughout the world, I meet people who come to tell me that they, too, were part of this esoteric order; but after being enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they confessed they never had a doubt that these teachings might have been harmful, and they give thanks to God for releasing them from Satan. What I noticed with these people is that they were not really aware of their sin of infidelity towards the Holy Trinity, Who must be loved and worshiped in the first place. As for my other brothers and sisters, called in the Order “fratres” and “sorores,” and I will continue to pray to Merciful Jesus for them all my life, so that one day – and maybe even at the hour of their death – they shout with all their heart to the Lord Jesus, “My Lord and my God.” If you knew how much the Lord Jesus loves them, and how much He suffers to see them far away from His divine Heart. As soon as those souls of love return to the unity of the Church, then the good and gentle Jesus does not suffer any more because the prodigal son is back on the road to paradise. In the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, I stopped at the seventh degree and I passed some esoteric initiations since I was part of a lodge. I can testify that these initiations filled me with anguish and spiritual pride. So to be delivered, I had to pray the rosary a lot. I also had masses celebrated for the salvation of my soul and find peace. 3. Apart from the initiations, we often met in the lodge to attend the rituals which gave me nothing; on the contrary, I remember that once I ran away and hid in another room as the experiments were too strong. I knew a gentleman with whom I shared the roof like brother and sister and who was also part of that order. He said he had largely achieved the twelfth degree. As he was leaving his monographs lying around at home, I was able to check easily at what stage he was. Unfortunately he stayed there and I continue to pray for Divine Mercy to come one day and justify his poor soul. I respect his inner freedom to serve God or serve Satan. Personally, I prefer to follow the advice of the apostles of the Lord Jesus Who founded the Holy Catholic Church. I was particularly touched by the Word of God. In his first letter of Saint John, he asks us to protect ourselves from antichrists: Children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come; therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out, that it might be plain that they all are not of us. But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all know. I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and know that no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. Any one who denies the Son does not have the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he has promised us, eternal life. I write this to you about those who would deceive you; but the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that any one should teach you; as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie, just as it has taught you, abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming (1 John 2:18-28). Dear readers, I had time to realize that everything I learned in monographs or in the lodge was useless for my inner development, or for own my salvation, since when we are Catholic we understand that the only true initiation is a personal encounter the Holy Trinity who dwell at the bottom of our heart and the Holy Trinity alone can really make us grow and give us the true Life. In this Order esoteric, I learned many useless things, for example, teachings on karma and reincarnation. 4. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that: 1013 Death is the end of man’s earthly pilgrimage, of the time of grace and mercy which God offers him so as to work out his earthly life in keeping with the divine plan, and to decide his ultimate destiny. When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed (Lumen Gentium 48 # 3), we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once” (Hebrews 9:27). There is no “reincarnation” after death. I realized that if the Church teaches that reincarnation does not exist, it was not necessary for me to remain in an order that taught me otherwise. In the Gospel of Luke, we have the evidence that reincarnation does not exist: “And he [the good thief] said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingly power.’ And he said to him, ‘Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise’” (23:42-43). And this how, dear readers, we see all the mercy of God Who forgives the sinner and opens up the sky for him simply because he recognizes Him as his Lord and God. We know that no sin will exhaust His infinite mercy, if only we acknowledge our guilt to a priest, behind whom Jesus hides, always ready to forgive us because Jesus is our only true friend, the only one to whom you can open your heart; He is there at the door and knocks on the door to enter. If God has opened the doors of paradise to the good thief, this means reincarnation does not exist at all. Through Rosicrucian monographs, I studied visualization, meditation and many things that I never used. On the contrary, these techniques destroyed me because fallen angels came to me through my opened chakras and tried to remove the faith in my heart. For a time they succeeded, but, by the grace of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary was watching over me, as She watches over all Her children who love Her. Through these studies I also chose freely to order many books written by Rosicrucian authors, and after reading them, I felt a great call to get rid of them. After tearing them apart, I threw them away, for during a pilgrimage to Medjugorje we were asked to get rid of everything that was not Catholic. 5. A few years later, while making a comparison with the doctrine of the Catholic faith, I have found heresies upon heresies. In the various books written by Rosicrucian authors which I read, I only found pride. It’s the perfect sign of a false prophet, for a real doctor always glorifies the Lord Jesus, and denies himself, placing himself behind Christ and considering himself a useless servant, not a master. To be named Master is usurping the Lord Jesus’ headship or place which is rightfully His. He alone is the Master of our souls. Whoever stands against Him commits a sin of overweening pride. The Lord Jesus, while being God, did not glorify Himself but glorified God the Father. I thank Jesus Christ for delivering me from illusion and being a knowledge-seeker who always wants to know the Lord more, and inviting me to be humble if I want to be saved; He invited me to littleness and real service. It is not because we wear an apron when we go to a lodge that we are true servants. We think we serve but as a matter of fact we are a victim of the enemy who is playing with us. Satan has lost because of his great pride, now in his infinite hatred, he wants to lead all souls to hell after him. Therefore, he leads many souls to betray Jesus Christ and leave the Catholic religion. You cannot put together the holy cross of Christ and a Rose. Satan’s Rose is a sign of fusion of all the adversaries of God, especially the opponents of Jesus Christ, His cross, His Precious Blood; it is a sign of rebellion. I can assure you that in this order I have never heard of the divinity of Christ, the Blessed Trinity, the Blessed Virgin Mary, purgatory and hell, papal infallibility, Church authority, and God’s commandments. All this is hidden, and therefore it is easy to understand that it is Satan’s work. On Judgment Day, God will only allow me in His Paradise if during my lifetime I have produced many acts of mercy. What is certain is that I will account for the time I spent in the study of these false doctrines and the money I spent there, which I could have shared simply with those who were hungry. As I said earlier, Satan, who is the father of lies, wants to lose all the souls that God has created out of pure love – to give His life in its fullness. 6. Yet how can we have this life in us if we are dominated inwardly by the Beast by adhering to false doctrine? Let us be wary of all these teachings which are not from God, and let us run away from them in horror as long as we are in the time of great divine mercy, because there is coming a time for divine justice in which no apostate will be able to convert. God calls us continually to repent, and when He called me, He delivered me totally from teachings and initiations; then He showed me how much Satan was the leader of these esoteric initiations and how much it was him who gave them. By way of contrast, Jesus, in His extreme simplicity, suggests, through His Church, which is His heart, to take advantage of the sacraments to help us walk the road to paradise. In the Rosicrucian Order, I had no hope to meet again those who were departed, and I never heard of the Rosary, the Stations of the Cross, or Mass which could have helped them to be released from the pains of purgatory. Yet after this one earthly life, we shall all appear, without exception, before the Blessed Trinity for the trial of our own soul. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that: 1021 Death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ (Cf. 2 Timothy 1:9-10). The New Testament speaks of judgment primarily in its aspect of the final encounter with Christ in his second coming, but also repeatedly affirms that each will be rewarded immediately after death in accordance with his works and faith. The parable of the poor man Lazarus and the words of Christ on the cross to the good thief, as well as other New Testament texts speak of a final destiny of the soul – a destiny which can be different for some and for others (Cf. Luke 16:22; 23:43; Matthew 16:26; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; Hebrews 9:27; 12:23). 1022 Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his death, in a particular judgment that refers his life to Christ: either entrance into the blessedness of heaven – through a purification[Cf. Council of Lyons II (1274); Council of Florence (1439); Council of Trent (1563)] or immediately [Cf. Benedict XII, Benedictus Deus (1336); John XXII, Ne super his (1334)], – or immediate and everlasting damnation [Cf. Benedict XII, Benedictus Deus (1336)]. At the evening of life, we shall be judged on our love (St. John of the Cross, Dichos 64). 7. CONCLUSION When I was a member of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, I could have attended Mass if I had wanted to, but I could have never received Communion. Why? Quite simply, because you cannot be a Catholic and adhere to a doctrine which is incompatible with the teachings of the Church. If we receive Communion while being a member of this order, the same if you are Freemason, then you must know that the words of St. Paul apply. Regarding Holy Communion, St. Paul says the following: “Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died” (1 Corinthians 11:27-30). So if we know we are in a state of grave sin and that we did not confess, we should stay at our place and be content with a spiritual communion until the next Confession. Dear readers, when the Lord Jesus came to save us, He never condemned someone when He preached on earth. Jesus desires the salvation of all souls, and that is why He wants us to confess and be reconciled with Him before receiving Communion so as not to bring condemnation on ourselves. I thank from the bottom my heart Jesus and Mary who delivered me from eternal damnation by removing me from that order. One day during a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary informed me that the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, was a sect, and after following the advice to get out of it, I went to meet a priest of the Catholic Church who confirmed that it was all true. This order is mentioned in the report on sects No. 1687 of June 10, 1999 (report ordered by the French government). Now that Jesus of love has erased my sin after I had admitted my sin to a priest, I often invoke 8. Maria, the Rosa Mystica, who comes to crush the three roses of Satan: The White Rose, which is the expression of a true science without the true triune God, the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Red Rose, which is sign of a fusion of all the adversaries of God, especially opponents of Christ, His passion, His cross, His very pure Blood; they are apostates of the latter days. The Golden Rose of Satan represents the idolatry of the ego; “be like God.” Dear readers, in these difficult times, I urge you to avoid all the wolves... Praised be Jesus Christ and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Fabienne GUERRERO BACK OF THE BOOK: Fabian Guerrero, a former Rosicrucian, was delivered in 1996 by Jesus Divine Mercy from this esoteric order. In this book, she talks about her experience in the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, and shows how God and the Blessed Virgin Mary took her out of it. Fabienne now gives many lectures around the world and reflects the infinite mercy of God for her soul and for all those who quit esotericism to regain faith in the Roman Catholic Church.
