Perhaps you might have seen it or it might have passed through your hands without your recognizing. Because, it is so deceptive that one cannot easily notice its diabolic details unless one makes a close scrutiny. I am talking about the Satanic New Age Rosaries rampant in many parts of Europe and spreading. These rosaries have appeared on sale at pilgrimage centres across Europe and are often given away for free. Made from cheap plastic, these New Age rosaries come in white, blue or pink, with a ‘made in Italy’ stamp. But the identity of the real manufacturers is as mysterious as the rosary itself!
Since these rosaries are often distributed at renowned apparition sites or pilgrim centres, devout people who would take anything they receive at such site with a bow, are sure to keep it as a holy thing. Once, in Medjugorge, some devotees got it from some people who distributed it freely on streets. They devoutly took it home as they thought it was just a different kind of holy rosary. But, when they happened to show it to an exorcist priest of their acquaintance, he immediately recognized the danger as asked them to throw it away. Information regarding the danger of these rosaries was given at the Marian Cenacle in Limoges, France on 14th March 2005.
They are considered New Age due to their symbolism which is not too easy to see except by close inspection of the crucifix, which shows a very sinister story. Behind the figure of Christ there can be seen a caduceus, which is an upright pole, representing mediation between Heaven and earth. It is an ancient herald’s wand which was carried by messenger gods like Hermes or Mercury. The rod is also a divining rod to measure the earth and its energies of power. The serpent Satan is shown behind the figure of Christ and is depicted by coiled serpents which means latent power, concealed but not yet fully manifest, a dormant power. It may also represent to Satanists that the devil is co messianic, co redeemer and co Christ etc. The circles on the crucifix are from Egyptian Graeco-Roman, Phoencian, Baal symbols called the Pentagram, which is a major occult sign. The circles or pentagrams have five points, which represent, spirit, fire, earth, water and air. The pentagram at the bottom is upside down represents the devils goat. The four circles with dots in the centre signify gold or the sun in alchemy. In general the meaning is “The resolution of all possibilities.” Christ does not share any platform with any other god, philosophy or belief system or minor deity least of all Satan. The depiction of Christ on the cross is the most prominent place of worship, adoration, veneration, glorification, for Catholics and many other Christians and now Satanists or ‘new agers,’ have placed Satan alongside Christ.
Be watchful, and don’t let yourself fall into deceptive traps of occultism and the New Age evil. God bless you..
