Here is an excerpt from an address composed by FRATER SUPERIOR HYMENAEUS BETA that was read at NOTOcon Friday, August 4 2023 e.v.
“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
“Today I canonized Harry Everett Smith as a Saint of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica. Yes, he was my friend and guru, and he was proud to serve as a bishop of our Gnostic and Catholic Church. But he was so much more. Since his greater feast over thirty years ago, I have come to better appreciate, with each passing year, the breadth, depth and height of his cosmic vision, and the real extent of his continuing influence. Harry had a plan for this world, but especially for America. His pitiless gaze saw us as we really were, but he firmly believed in a just and joyous society, guided by love under will. A world free from class, free from injustice, free of prejudice, free from persecution, free of elitism, and free of coercion. A world where all cultures and peoples are valued absolutely on their own terms. He measurably moved the needle to make this real. He was a true son of the Lion and the Serpent, and destroyed the destroyer — he was the occult genius behind the ritual to levitate the Pentagon to end an unjust war. He lived to see America transformed. On accepting a Grammy award not long before his death, he said “I’m glad to say that my dreams came true. That I saw America changed through music. And all that stuff that the rest of you are talking about.” He guided us from the old, weird America to a new America, and a new world, that are even weirder.
“Love is the law, love under will.”
