Why The Liberal Catholic Church? 

(or, Why us?)

Religion does not mean dogma, doctrine, or denominational regulation. It does not require rigid ceremonial or ritual. It does not require institutional churches. HOWEVER, rituals and places where they can be performed are invaluable tools that should be used to aid and strengthen man’s spiritual development. Divine energy permeates the whole universe and is channeled through it like all other forces known to man. An effective tool for its channeling is the Holy Eucharist (Mass) as celebrated in the Liberal Catholic Church. It proves to be a medium most perfectly suited to the flow of spiritual energy, as frequently attested to by those possessing trained clairvoyant sight. The work of the Liberal Catholic Church, while seemingly of the character of institutionalized worship, is free from rigid structuring, except that in their outer forms its services provide the visible channel facilitating the transmission of that spiritual (divine) energy down to the physical level. It is essential that the mind be completely free to participate in the services of the Liberal Catholic Church according to each person’s inclinations and his potential for response. Thus, there can be no authority dictating beliefs, creeds, or dogmas, nor setting up restrictions which inhibit the partaking of any of the Church’s Sacraments. In all, the individual’s conscience commands supreme authority and respect.
