The god-father of “new age” was a sick anti-Catholic deviant February 18, 2014

Below I will excerpt some portions of Amchurch Comes Out, from pp. 225-232.  They deal with the history and thought of Carl Jung, purported expert in psychoanalysis and founder of what is commonly called the new age religion.  I haven’t blogged on new age in a while, but this is critical, critical information on the man considered the founder and intellectual guiding light of this false, perverse religion.  New age practices tragically remain incredibly widespread in the Church, with numerous local parishes in the Dallas area hosting yoga, enneagrams, reiki, transcendental meditation, etc.  All of these practices are impossible to reconcile with proper Catholic spirituality as they are oriented towards self-exaltation and finding “the god within.”

There is much explosive information below.  How anyone could even remotely adhere to new age practices based on this man’s Church-hatred and perversion is beyond me:

In his 1933 classic, Essays of a Catholic, [eminent Catholic historian Hillaire] Belloc predicted that “when the gods of the new paganism come they will not be merely insufficient, as were the gods of Greece, nor merely false; they will be evil.  One might put it in a sentence, and say that the new paganism, foolishly expecting satisfaction, will fall, before it knows where it is, into satanism.”

In that same period, the 1930s, Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung began sending out his anointed disciples from Zurich to Britain and the United States to spread his Jungian doctrines and establish what historian and psychologist Dr. Richard Noll described as “an anti-orthodox Christianity cult of redemption or Nietszchean religion [the same kind of sick false religion that powered Nazism, of which Jung was a big fan] ,” finding fertile ground especially among disorientated Catholics [though not until the 1960s].

……..Jung’s entire life and work was motivated by a desire to overthrow the Catholic Church, whose religious doctrine and moral teachings he considered the source of all the neuroses which afflicted Western man.  In short: Jung hated the Catholic Church, and by his experience with occult forces, he believed he could destroy it by unleashing the power of disordered sex.

With the financial backing of some of the wealthiest Americans, including the Rockefeller family, and teh support of Marxist ideologues, eugenicists, and sexual libertines in the media, universitis, and government, Jung’s program to deconstruct orthodox Christianity became the playbook for the managerial elite of the new planned society of the 1930s….. [referring here to the New Deal]

Jung’s influence cannot be underestimated…..

…..By 1912, Jung was totally absorbed by eroticism and entranced by the occult, particularly the ritualistic liturgies of Mithras. [Remember, modernist thought was at its height at this time. Pope St. Pius X had formally defined and anathematized the heresy a few years before.  What is not widely known, is that many of these early adherents to modernism soon fell into the occult. Occult practices were rampant among academics, especially left wing academics, in the period from 1900-1940 or so]  That year, he announced he could no longer be a Christian, and that only the “new” science of psychoanalysis – as he defined it – could offer personal and cultural renewal and rebirth  [setting up “science” – even though it wasn’t real science – as a false god.  Very common.  These men seek to overthrow God and replace Him with…….themselves.  It is the very oldest heresy, it is satan’s heresy]

To Jung, honoring “god” meant honoring the libido. Indeed…….”Jung offers the psychoanalytic term ‘libido’ as a mystical substitute for ‘vital force’  [vital force – that is a term straight out of the modernist heresy] or even ‘god.’ …….

…..”The experience of a god within was always a key promise of Jung, and his method of psychotherapy, and it is indeed a central part of Jung’s repudiation of traditional Christianity that offered a God that was distant, transcendental and absolute……..

……Having a “god within” could lead to the experience of becoming one with “god,” or merging with this god-force in some way.  It is clear from his many statements that Jung felt that the central experience of transformation in the ancient mystery cults of the Hellenistic world involved just such a process or experience of self-deification.  [And achieving “contact” or “union” with this personal, individual “god within” remains the sole focus of all new age practices. This is a god of the individual’s making, in spite of occasional “Catholic” cover language to the contrary used by new age sisters like Joyce Rupp, and thus a false god, a competitor to the One, True, God. Little wonder, then, so many new age types wind up wandering further and further into paganism, the occult, wicca, etc.]

……..Jung’s drive to formulate a new religion was the result of trying to justify his own sins; the betrayal of his wife and the betrayal and seduction of his patient Sabina Spielrein. He needs to conceive a ‘better religion, one that wouldn’t condemn him for his sins. [All public heresy is driven by private sin]

At bottom, Jung betrayed his father, his wife, his patient, and, of course, Christ, in trying to ease the rebukes his conscience delivered. [Jung had been baptized as a protestant]

[Condensing some other disparate quotes:  Jung began arranging orgies from among his female and male patients, he used these sex orgies to drive people away from their Christian upbringing and to introduce them into the occult, he defended infidelity and fornication, he got increasingly into witchcraft and other satanism, etc]

….Jung has been the driving force of the “quiet revolution” in the Catholic Church for the past sixty years, at least. His teachings long ago replaced those of Jesus Christ, St. Paul, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas in the “mainstream” of Catholic teaching in seminaries, convents, Catholic colleges and universities, retreat programs and spiritual formation courses in Western Europe and the United States – a revolution which most Catholics have not yet noticed. [Indeed, I started this blog in response to a scandalous series of Lenten retreats hosted by new age female religious.]

Even more peculiar is the fact that Jung, an “apostle for adultery,” who believed in (and practiced polygamy), who devoted his life to overthrowing patriarchal society and reviving ancient pagan gods of the libido, should have his “insights” into masculinity, femininity, and sexuality upheld by a woman – Dolores Leckey – who headed the US bishop’s marriage and family life office in their national conference for 20 years! [And, of course, these new age heresies have been widely promoted by numerous religious, like Richard Rohr, Thomas Keating, Joyce Rupp, etc.  The vast majority of 60+ year old religious in this country adhere to new age practices in one manner or another.  That is why their orders are already well past the point of collapse – they embrace a spirituality directly antithetical to the right practice of the Faith]

Jung’s obsession with overthrowing orthodox Christianity is detailed in Dr. Richard Noll’s The Aryan Christ: The Secret Life of C.G. Jung.

[Regarding Jung’s theories of masculinity, femininity, and “finding the god within”, supposedly based on his psychoanalytical research, which have found wide acceptance in the Church in the US, and which featured in a book written by the aforementioned Dolores Leckey]……Those particular ideas of Jung’s have no scientific validity.  Essentially, Jung borrowed this cluster of ideas from the Aryan spirituality and occultism of his day….

……People who say such things think they are speaking scientifically, but this vocabulary comes from an occult tradition prevalent at the turn of the century in Germany….. [a tradition prevalent because of modernist rejection of Catholicism, which was rampant in Germany at that time]

…Walk into a typical Catholic bookstore and browse in the “spirituality” section, and you’ll see the best-selling books of such popularizers of the Jung cult as priests Basil Pennington, Richard Rohr, and Thomas Keating.

Read the lists for “spirituality” programs and retreats in many diocesan newspapers, and you will see programs on Jungian dream analysis, discovering the child within, contacting your inner “god/goddess,” or similar such Jungian therapy programs predominate, even though they have nothing to do with Catholic spirituality, and are inherently antithetical to it.

————-End Quote————

And thus, new age errors have become, incredibly, one of the most prominent if not the most prominent approaches to spirituality abroad in the Church in the US today.

As I said, this blog got started as a response to a particularly egregious series of Lenten retreats given in the Dallas Diocese back in 2010.  Since that time, there have still been retreats featuring female religious, but they have featured individuals without much of a paper trail, so that it is difficult to ascertain just what they present.  But I know there are still numerous parishes in the Diocese that regularly promote and host new age spirituality practices, from yoga to reiki to new age/eastern meditation……the list is quite extensive.  When I presented problems regarding these practices to some area pastors, the response ranged from silence to hostility.

I used to peruse parish bulletins to see what they had going on regarding these types of programs.  I haven’t done that of late, but intend to get back to it.  It will probably mean a lot fewer posts, but more focused.  You, dear reader, could certainly help in that regard.  Especially here in the Dallas Diocese (but I would consider posting materials from other nearby dioceses), if you find in your parish bulletin some problematic activity, you could certainly bring that to my attention, or you could contact the pastor yourself if you feel able.  Always be constantly polite and thankful.

If you found something you thought worthy for me to pursue, you could e-mail it to me or leave a comment on the blog.

The reason for doing this is to protect souls from being exposed to destructive, diabolically-inspired new age practices.  My personal experience with these folks, and Paul Likoudis confirms such in Amchurch Comes Out, is that they are almost impossible to convert. Once souls get lost in these very self-oriented, inwardly-turned practices, there is almost an addictive quality that leads them deeper and deeper into paganism and the occult, and turning them around takes a practical miracle.  Prevention, in this case, is utterly paramount. You have to stop people being exposed to this entre’ into the occult.

Spiritually speaking, folks absorbed into new age are exposed to all kinds of dark spiritual forces. That, coupled with the great temptation to pride (making god unto oneself), makes new age a uniquely dangerous practice.

It is a spiritual nightmare and we desperately need to make souls aware of just how dangerous this new age stuff is.  One of the major sources of the great spiritual weakness in the Church today, and the prevalence of very dark forces as witnessed in priest boy rape and all that, is this widespread dabbling in near-occult practices.

Curiously, I just listened to Voris’ One True Faith episode on Oprah and Eckhardt Tolle. Just what you’re talking about.

2. Brian - February 18, 2014

Thank you for bringing this to the attention of your readers. Many people will overlook this because they themselves would never participate in such garbage.

So what’s the harm? Well…let’s go back to the Albany Diocese and Bishop Hubbard. As I mentioned in a previous post, the seminarian candidates for the Diocese of Albany are sent to the Diocesan Consultation Center for their psychological and sexual evaluation. This same consultation center offers the following:

1. On March 22 you can attend the “Seminar on Dreams and Jungian Concepts Associated with Dream Work.

– Dreams, at times referred to as God’s forgotten language.
– You can interpret your dreams
– Discover the art of exploring your dream world.


2. On April 15 you can attend the Creative Arts Therapies Conference

– explore concepts of body/mind awareness and movement activities
– explore universal emotional states
– use the principles of Tai Chi Chuan (balance, posture, rooting, fluid movement about the body center).

The “professionals” (some of them priest) who offer these seminars are the same people evaluating your son as a candidate for the priesthood. Scary and Scandalous!

I’m not sure how widespread this garbage is, but if you know a man who feels they have a vocation it’s best to “enlighten” them about such matters. I was a bit naïve when I began the application process and I got a rude awakening when I went for my evaluations. It’s the beginning of their indoctrination.

tantamergo - February 18, 2014

It’s very widespread. And thanks so much for the informative comment.

Good orthodox priests advise us NOT to put too much consideration into our dreams as being revealing of some secret knowledge about ourselves or events around us. Dream analysis is frequently an entryway into the occult.

Brian - February 18, 2014

Just a quick follow-up – when I said “if you know a man who feels they have a vocation it’s best to “enlighten” them about such matters” I meant to enlighten them about the dangers of those who use Jungian concepts.

Jungian concepts influences every aspect of the people who employ it. In the case of a priest/psychologist who is interviewing a perspective seminarian, they most likely have a very distorted view of human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation. These happen to be the very pillars of Priestly formation as outlined in the Program for Priestly Formation.

It’s very easy to pass on this poison to the next generation and it can be very subtle. Make no mistake – they are as cunning as a fox.

Reblogged this on Catholic Glasses and commented:
Doesn’t surprise me. My diocese is full of the same ilk.

4. Woody - February 18, 2014

Very spooky, indeed!

5. Mac Mccay - February 18, 2014

Thanks on Jung junk.  Have young relative in Big Time on Jung.  Prayers requested please please please.

One more thing! Sorry for the long quote but I can’t help it. I knew I had heard of Paul Likoudis and found this article (the link at the bottom has the full article). I had a very unpleasant experience with one of the named priest in this article. It’s spot on.


by Paul Likoudis

Moving beyond the theoretical or publicity level, Catholic spiritual
programs in the United States show a definite Jungian inclination.

For example, for 25 years, the Consultation Center of the Diocese of Albany, N.Y., sponsored, supported, and subsidized by the Diocese of Albany, has offered Jungian therapy groups, special focus groups, lectures, and workshops taught by certified Jungian psychotherapists.

The center was established in 1969 by Fr. John Malecki, Ph.D., C.A.C., the former spiritual director for Mater Christi Seminary, who, one Albany priest told , “destroyed many, many vocations.”

Malecki, the priest said, “was a ‘space cadet’ of the first order, and in the days when ‘spiritual direction’ was mandatory, he subjected a lot of good blue-collar kids who simply wanted to be priests to all kinds of psychosexual psychoanalysis, and though those boys didn’t have any problems when they went into the seminary, they sure did by the time they left.”

Malecki is still a teacher at the center, though now it is under the
direction of Fr. Anthony J. Chiaramonte, Ph.D.

More great stuff. You’re really contributing, thanks very much.

Ooooohhh, Scarrry!

Don’t post videos in comments. Secondly, please, get out of here with your tired American protestant balderdash. Even Luther acknowledged the Church was the institution founded by Christ to be His Body on earth. He also left because he could not be continent and constantly failed in his vow of celibacy, just as Jung left protestantism to pursue his sexual kinks.

Learn some history. What the earliest Church believed, the Catholic Church believes. protestants pick and choose little bits of Scripture taken totally out of context and hang enormous errors on their private interpretation of them.

There is a very tight relationship between modernism, new age heresies, and priest sex abuse. There haven’t been even a handful of priest sex abusers among orthodox Catholic priests, they have all come from the ranks of the modernist/Jungian sect in the Church. That these men were even ordained, and allowed to operate for years, speaks to the massive collapse in belief and right exercise of Authority in the Church, not to some systemic error.

Oh, I’m wasting my time.

discipleofthedumbox - February 18, 2014

Amen, brother!

tantamergo - February 18, 2014

YOU can post videos. Just not newbies coming in stinking up the place.

discipleofthedumbox - February 18, 2014

Yeah, no worries. I figured it was in response to that (dang, can’t say it in light of this weekend’s scripture) that particular commenter. Ahem. You can remove my earlier post and video in light of the removal of his inane posts. Cheers!

I had to move from a diocese riddled with new age garbage. The Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth ran the hospital and were reiki teachers, one ‘nun’ had tai chi across the hall at the time of weekday Mass, Depak Chopra was invited and so on. Some ‘sisters’ were ‘weavers of change’ and there was enneagram and crystals and so forth but with the sisters dying out, much of that sort of thing did too, but still the modernist influence is huge. I have relatives in Santa Fe. Talk about Jung and new age! Terrible.

I now live in a faithful diocese with a faithful archbishop and I am not seeing any on that junk. But it will take years to bring back dioceses like Albany, etc. So few know the faith. Just pockets of remnant and trads.

dallas - February 19, 2014

Where does “Living your Strengths” fit in with these?
Praying especially for the future of the Diocese of Albany…

10. john - February 18, 2014

I still remember being forced fed this crap in college about how “enlightened” Jung was and his crud. Of course, we took it up, lock stock and barrel

11. Mary - February 19, 2014

“Only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith” (Mystici Corporis, 22, Pope Pius XII). The dogma of the faith teaches that the Church is where the true faith is. Like the English churches at the time of the Reformation the Catholic faith/the Catholic Church is no longer in the Vatican II institutions, but only with the validly ordained priests and validly consecrated bishops who reject these abberations and maintain the true faith and valid sacraments – the SSPX and sedevacantists.

12. c matt - February 19, 2014

he believed he could destroy it by unleashing the power of disordered sex

I have to say one thing for Jung, he certainly understood the power of the sexual urge. Atheism’s most persuasive (although obviously false) argument has always, and will always be: I want to have sex with this person; the Church says I can’t; therefore there is no God.

13. c matt - February 19, 2014

What do you think of the Taize stuff? My pastor, who seems to be fairly orthodox, is always recommending it, but I don’t know anyting about it. For some reason, it does not sound quite right to me.

tantamergo - February 19, 2014

Taize is a protestant community in France that apes Catholic monasticism. It is a deliberately ecumenical community. However, they introduce a number of protestant ideas. I would stay far away from it.

14. Christopher Ekstrom - February 20, 2014

It’s amazing when one sincerely questions, politely, omissions in Gospel readings (for example) the “silence to hostility” response. It’s unnerving in that said Priest responds as-if they have been “caught”. They know better & yet still transgress; in the Holy Church of Our Saviour. Very suspicious & stinks of evil…
