Are you a Liberal Catholic and don’t know it?

Do you believe one or more of the following statements?

  • God’s love is what matters in life.
  • Mature people should be free from religious dogma and oppression.
  • The sermon shouldn’t always be about money.
  • Divorced persons have suffered enough pain without being rejected by religion.
  • No human being is infallible.
  • Reproductive rights are the responsibility of the individuals involved.
  • It isn’t Christ’s death only, but His whole Life and Living that shows us the way.
  • God is active in other religions.
  • The Bible is a handbook to higher consciousness.
  • Authentic Christianity confers actual power on its adherents.
  • The Sacraments of the Church embody and give mystical and spiritual power to those who participate.

If you believe even a few of these statements, then your spiritual home is The Liberal Catholic Church

Spiritual Illness

There’s a saying: “It’s as natural as breathing.” We all know how important breathing is, and we’ve all experienced the abject misery of an illness which blocks our ability to take a deep, natural breath. When this happens, we eagerly look forward to the day when we are cured and can breathe easily again.

Spiritual Misery

So it is a human right to seek a natural life of freedom and growth, yet there are untold numbers of people who suffer from spiritual misery because they are in a spiritual system that blocks their ability to take a deep, spiritual breath. Perhaps their religion controls them by threatening them with “hell,” or perhaps their religion pretends to be the “one true religion.” It may be that their religion denies to its members the right to investigate various pathways to the spiritual life.

Western Ignorance

Most religions in the West have no knowledge or understanding about the esoteric life, do not foster or encourage mystical, spiritual experience, but promote instead emotional outbursts, claiming these to be “spiritual,” and utterly reject Christ’s spiritual power arrangements called the Sacraments.

Authentic Christianity

The Liberal Catholic Church has, from its beginning as the Old Catholic Church in England, held to the truth of freedom of belief and the truth that the Divine Power of the Sacraments was given by Christ. The LCC, as it is often called, through its publications, has once again restored and revealed authentic Christian mystical teachings and experience. Further, The LCC has a valid Apostolic Succession which it carefully guards and preserves so that its Sacraments are maintained “in their plenitude.”

Indeed, the Anglican Bishop of Durham, during the World Eucharistic Congress, in 1976, reported that The LCC “has the most beautiful Liturgy in the English Language.”

Escaping Hypocrisy

So, why be “of two minds,” as St. Paul writes, believing in the higher life, yet staying in a religious system that utterly denies even the very existence of the mystical life? Or, if you currently belong to no church, yet still believe in the mystical side of living, why remain outside the very Source of that mystical life? You are invited to escape hypocrisy, ignorance and oppression, and to come into the real world of knowledge, spiritual freedom, and Divine Love as found in The Liberal Catholic Church
