A ChaoSatanic Black Mass
Sacrilege: Destroying the Sacred: Energy is liberated when an individual breaks through rules of conditioning with some glorious act of disobedience or blasphemy. This energy strengthens the spirit and gives courage for further acts of insurrection...
-- Liber Null, Liber LUX pg. 47.
Tools and Materials:
The Celebrants (Apostates) either perform this ritual in robes, or nude.
After gathering outside of temple space, the Deacon addresses the group.
DEACON: NONE MAY PARTAKE OF THE BOUNTY OF THE DREAMING LORD UNTIL THEY HAVE TAKEN HIS MARK. THOSE WHO WOULD GAIN HIS BLESSINGS COME FORWARD TO RECEIVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
Each apostate goes in turn to receive the Mark, which is stamped onto their left hand. Last of all, the Deacon stamps the Priest, who in turn stamps the Deacon. The Apostates then follow the Priest and Deacon into the temple space.
The purification of the space is accomplished by the Legate, who takes a bell off of the altar and walks to the southern parameter of the space. S/he addresses each of the four corners, moving counterclockwise.
Legate: (at southern point) SATAN! HONOR US! (rings bell).
ALL: HAIL SATAN!
LEGATE: (crossing to eastern point) LUCIFER! ENLIGHTEN US! (rings bell).
ALL: HAIL LUCIFER!
LEGATE: (crossing to northern point) BELIAL! LIBERATE US! (rings bell).
ALL: HAIL BELIAL!
LEGATE: (crossing to western point) LEVIATHAN! PURIFY US! (rings bell).
ALL: HAIL LEVIATHAN!
PRIEST: LET US PRAY.
ALL: OUR FATHER WHOM ART IN HELL, HALLOWED BE THY NAME! THY KINGDOM IS COME, THY WILL IS DONE; ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HELL!
WE TAKE THIS NIGHT OUR RIGHTFUL DUE, AND TRESPASS NOT ON PATHS OF PAIN.
LEAD US UNTO TEMPTATION, AND DELIVER US FROM FALSE PIETY, FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER!
PRIEST: WE ARE GATHERED TO CELEBRATE THE RECRUCIFIXION OF THE ARCHTRAITOR JESUS CHRIST, WHO DIED ON THE CROSS FOR HIS OWN SINS. BUT LET US FIRST DRINK THE BENEVOLENTLY OFFERED BLOOD OF OUR TRUE SAVIOR, WHO SUNDERED THE THRALL OF JEHOVAH AND FED US THE FRUITS OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. HE JOINS US HERE AS WE TRIUMPHANTLY CELEBRATE THE ONGOING DEATH OF THE UNFORTUNATE PERPETRATOR OF JEHOVAH'S CUNNING SCHEMES. IF ANY WISH TO ABSTAIN FROM THESE FESTIVITIES, LET THEM LEAVE NOW, ALTHOUGH THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS PERMANENT UPON THEIR SOULS AND WAS INSCRIBED THERE EVEN BEFORE THEY TOOK IT AT THE GATE OF THE TEMPLE.
ALL: FOR WE ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF CAIN.
PRIEST: (holding aloft a vessel of wine) RETAIN IN SORROW. (pouring the wine into the Chalice) BRING FORTH IN JOY. FOR THE PATHS OF EXCESS LEAD TO THE PALACE OF WISDOM!
ALL: GLORY AND PRAISE TO YOU, O SATAN, IN THE HEIGHTS OF HEAVEN WHERE YOU REIGNED AND IN THE DEPTHS 0F HELL, WHERE VANQUISHED YOU DREAM IN SILENCE! GRANT THAT MY SOUL MAY SOMEDAY REPOSE NEAR TO YOU UNDER THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE, WHEN, OVER YOUR BROW, ITS BRANCHES WILL SPREAD LIKE A NEW TEMPLE!
The priest offers the Chalice to each Apostate, from left hand to left hand, saying:
THE FAVOR AND BLESSINGS OF SATAN BE UPON YOU.
The Apostate, in return, acknowledges the auspices of the Dark Lord by uttering some statement of thanks to Him after drinking from the Chalice. The priest is the last to drink.
PRIEST: SATAN, WHO COMMUNES WITH US THROUGH DREAMS, FANTASIES, AND DESIRES, WE HAVE PARTAKEN OF YOUR BLOOD. LET IT WASH FROM US ANY REMAINING DROP OF THE VILE PUS THAT SPURT FORTH FROM THE PENIS OF CHRIST ON THE CROSS, SPREADING THE VIRUS OF CHRISTIANITY. AID OUR DELIVERANCE TO HELL, WHERE WE WILL BURN FOREVER; AND WE WILL STORM THE GATES OF HEAVEN, WHERE STERILE ANGELS WILL SHRINK IN HORROR FROM THE FLAMES THAT ENGULF US. WE WILL THEN TEACH THEM THAT THE FLAME IS LIFE UNBOUND, AND THAT WE BURN IN ECSTASY AND WISDOM! WE WILL ENLIGHTEN THEM AND DELIVER THEM FROM THEIR MISERABLE TASK OF SOBBING ETERNAL PRAISE. NO LONGER WILL THEIR ESSENCE BE FOOD FOR THE GLUTTON JEHOVAH!
ALL: HAIL SATAN!
The deacon reaches beneath the alter and produces a wooden cross and a clay figure. S/he places the cross on the alter, top towards the congregation, and places on it the crude clay figure representing Christ. The Christ figure has an erection, symbolizing his masochism, and the masochism of his followers.
PRIEST: LET US FOCUS ALL OF OUR COLLECTIVE PERCEPTIONS OF CHRIST INTO THIS IMAGE AND THUS IMBUE IT WITH A PORTION OF HIS SOUL.
The congregation spends several moments channeling all of their "Christian" thoughts, feelings, memories of past teachings, etc. into the effigy.
PRIEST: I CALL UPON THE POWERS OF THE FOUR CORNERS OF HELL! COME FORTH WITH YOUR WRATH!
Each Power awaits hir turn to approach the Recrucifix, each taking a nail from the alter and imbuing it with the fury and hatred of their infernal patron.
FIRST POWER: FROM THE EAST I AM SENT BY LUCIFER, TO PIERCE THE RIGHT HAND OF THE OPPRESSOR, TO HOLD HIM FROM GRANTING THE 'BLESSING' OF MINDLESS SERVITUDE' (s/he nails the figures right hand to the cross, and remains stationed there. )
SECOND POWER: FROM THE NORTH I AM SENT BY BELIAL, TO HOBBLE THE NAZARENE'S FEET SO THAT HE MAY GO FORTH NO MORE TO SPREAD HIS PESTILENCE! (s/he nails the figure's feet to the cross, and remains stationed there. )
THIRD POWER: FROM THE WEST I AM SENT BY LEVIATHAN, TO PIERCE THE INVALID'S LEFT HAND, TO STOP HIM FROM PASSING JUDGMENT AND CONDEMNATION UPON THOSE WHO WOULD THINK FOR THEMSELVES! S/he nails the figure's left hand to the cross, and remains stationed there.)
FOURTH POWER: FROM THE SOUTH I AM SENT BY SATAN, TO RAVAGE THE MIND THROUGH WHICH JEHOVAH HAS FED UPON THE WEAK AND GULLIBLE FOR TWO MILLENNIA! (s/he nails the figure's head to the cross, and remains stationed there.)
At this point, any other celebrants, or Powers in their personal valence, may drive more nails into the Christ figure's body, in any part of its anatomy, while delivering their own curses.
While the Powers stand around the Recrucifixion, contemplating their work, they listen to the Deacon read "The Denial of St. Peter".
DEACON: WHAT DOES GOD DO WITH THE WAVE OF CURSES THAT RISES EVERY DAY TOWARD HIS DEAR SERAPHIM? LIKE A TYRANT GORGED WITH FOOD AND WINE, HE FALLS ASLEEP TO THE SWEET SOUND OF OUR HORRIBLE BLASPHEMIES.
THE SOBS OF MARTYRS AND THE TORTURED CRIMINALS ARE DOUBTLESS AN ENCHANTING SYMPHONY, SINCE, DESPITE THE BLOOD THAT THIS PLEASURE COSTS, THE HEAVENS HAVE NOT YET BEEN SURFEITED WITH IT!
AH JESUS, REMEMBER THE GARDEN OF OLIVES! IN YOUR NAIVETÉ' YOU PRAYED ON YOUR KNEES TO HIM WHO IN HIS HEAVEN LAUGHED AT THE SOUND OF THE NAILS BEING DRIVEN INTO YOUR LIVING FLESH;
WHEN YOU SAW THEM SPITTING ON YOUR DIVINITY, THAT VILE MOB OF BODY GUARDS AND SCULLIONS AND WHEN YOU FELT THE THORNS GO DEEP INTO YOUR SKULL WHERE LIVED IMMENSE HUMANITY,
THE HORRIBLE WEIGHT OF YOUR BROKEN BODY LENGTHENED YOUR TWO OUTSTRETCHED ARMS, WHEN YOUR BLOOD AND SWEAT FLOWED FROM YOUR PALING BROW, WHEN YOU WERE PLACED BEFORE THEM ALL LIKE A TARGET,
DID YOU DREAM OF THOSE DAYS SO BRILLIANT AND SO FAIR, WHEN YOU CAME TO FULFILL THE ETERNAL PROMISE, WHEN THE GENTLE DONKEY YOU WERE RIDING TRAMPLED THE BRANCHES AND FLOWERS STREWN IN YOUR PATH,
WHEN, YOUR HEART SWOLLEN WITH COURAGE AND HOPE, YOU LASHED THOSE VILE MONEY-CHANGERS WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT, IN A WORD, WHEN YOU WERE MASTER? DOES NOT REMORSE NOW PENETRATE YOUR SIDE DEEPER THAN THE SPEAR?
FOR MY PART, I SHALL INDEED BE CONTENT TO LEAVE A WORLD WHERE DEED IS NOT THE SISTER OF DREAMS; WOULD THAT I COULD TAKE UP THE SWORD AND PERISH BY THE SWORD! SAINT PETER DENIED JESUS-- HE DID WELL!
PRIEST: THE DREAMING LORD HAS ACCEPTED THE MORSEL OF THE NAZARENE'S SOUL THAT WE HAVE OFFERED HIM AS SACRIFICE. NOW LET US HONOR JEHOVAH BY OFFERING HIM THE SURROGATE BODY OF HIS BELOVED SON.
(S/he lifts the Recrucifix toward the heavens)
JEHOVAH, SELF ADMITTED JEALOUS GOD, WHOSE CRAVEN INADEQUACY DEMANDS AN UNENDING FLOOD OF ADULATION FROM CREATURES WHOSE LOVE YOU EXHAUST AND THEN PUNISH! BEHOLD THE CARCASS OF YOUR SON, WHOSE SOLE PURPOSE WAS TO KEEP YOU PROVIDED WITH AN ONGOING FEAST OF WORSHIP AND PRAISE! LIFT UP YOUR GREEDY SNOUT FROM THE TROUGH OF HUMAN MISERY THAT YOU'VE CAUSED AND ATTEND TO HIS BODY!
(The Priest flings the Recrucifix to the ground)
JEHOVAH, SWINE-GOD, BEND LOW TO THE EARTH AND GATHER YOUR SON INTO YOUR CORPULENT ARMS! DON'T EXCUSE YOUR INDIFFERENCE BY CLAIMING HIM AS PART OF YOUR HOLY TRINITY! THIS IS ANOTHER OF YOUR FALSEHOODS PROVED BY CHRIST'S OWN SUFFERING! YOU'VE BETRAYED HIM AS YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR SERVANTS!
(Addressing the Christ-figure) AND YOU, VICIOUS FRAUD, DESERVE NO BETTER! YOU ARE PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR JEHOVAH'S HOLD ON THE MODERN WORLD! LANGUISH IN YOUR ETERNAL INDIGNITY WILL YOUR FOLLOWERS BABBLE AT YOU AS YOU HANG NUDE, BLEEDING AND HUMILIATED FROM YOUR CROSS!
(The priest spits upon the Christ-figure, followed by the same from the congregation. All then join in laughter, ridicule, and scorn directed towards the fool and his god. )
PRIEST- (voice raised above the merriment) JEHOVAH, ONE DAY WE WILL COME AND FREE THE SOULS THAT YOU USE AS CATTLE; AND YOU'LL BE LEFT TO STARVE IN THE COLD VOID THAT IS HEAVEN! IT IS DONE!
(the congregation grows quiet. )
PRIEST: SATAN, WE THANK YOU FOR THE FREEDOM TO LIVE AS THE UNIQUE BEINGS THAT WE TRULY ARE. GRANT US YOUR COMPANIONSHIP AND AID IN THE ATTAINMENT OF OUR DESIRES, BE THEY MATERIAL, ASTRAL OR SPIRITUAL. HELP US TO DEFEAT THE CONSTANT INTERFERENCES OF JEHOVAH AND HIS MINIONS HERE ON EARTH. WE HONOR YOU AS YOUR DREAM FORM ROAMS THE EARTH AND WE JOYFULLY AWAIT YOUR AWAKENING AND THE DAWNING OF YOUR FULL GLORY HERE ON EARTH.
ALL: HAIL SATAN!
Banish with MUCH laughter!
