6-6-06: The Satanic High Mass

For the first time, the footage of this has been released for public viewing. Some of it has been cut for the requests of privacy by some of the participants.

Now that I’m seeing it, I’m so impressed. This is beautiful.

Note: To all non-Satanists viewing this, this is a customized ritual inspired by those of Anton Szandor LaVey. This is not to be confused with a Black Mass. Black Masses are basically obscene inverted mockeries of the Christian traditions. This ritual was about half-Black Mass, half celebration of the ideas of reason, ability, life and all things anti-spiritual. Satanists do not regularly ritualize in this manner and it is extremely rare to see them gather in such large numbers as most ritual is done by oneself in the comfort of their own home with little exception. But with growing hysteria over the 6/6/6 date, honestly… could you resist?

Just a little video I found of the most awesome things ever. This was my first time ever seeing Peggy Nadramia (as well as her and Peter’s AMAZING house.)

These two houses, my friends, are what I want my future home to be something akin to.

Anonymous said: A correction, I noticed you referred to Satan Xerxes Carnacki LaVey as Anton LaVey's grandson. In fact he is his son, Stanton LaVey is his only grandson. The fact his son is far younger than his grandson is often the source of confusion.

You’re absolutely correct. I have no clue why I thought he was his grandson.

And while I’m at it, I’m going to correct myself on a blunder of mine a few days back.

I was asked here on my thoughts of recent “heirs to the throne” for the Church of Satan.

I need to correct myself in that LaVey never actually chose Peter for High Priesthood, nor did he choose his wife Peggy to be the High Priestess. He left full control to (now Magistra) Blanche Barton, who then felt it was only necessary that Peggy and Peter be the new spearhead of Satanic presence in the world.

To me, this gives Zeena and Boyd’s argument more water to hold as I can see how they would be upset. But, like I said before, I’m not sure there was ever a better choice than those two. If they’ve done anything I appreciate a whole lot, it’s that they have led CoS into not evolution, as Satanism needs no such thing, but rather allowed it to mature into being taken more seriously than ever before. That, in itself, is an accomplishment that is completely lost on most other religions to me.

So thank you very much, Anonymous, for correcting me. I was confusing SXCL (Now there’s some initials, eh?) with Zeena’s kid, who she had when she was 14.

And to Deepdarkwoods and all who took information from that, I apologize for the mistake.

Invictvs, the human.

30 April, XLV A.S.:

“Wicked Walpurgisnacht!” to true Satanists the world over!

Tonight we celebrate the forty-fourth anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan. It is a very special anniversary as a new ritual chamber is being consecrated in a Black House newly risen. A select few are in attendance at this shrine of the shadows. Let the resonance of this night inspire Satanists around the globe to stand forth and claim their due.

Our cherished comrades are in our thoughts as the words crafted by our founder ring out—proudly, defiantly, and triumphantly!

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

Hail Satan!

Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Magistra Peggy Nadramia
