An outsider’s experience of the Gnostic Mass

Anyone familiar with the Catholic Mass will notice similarities. The Gnostic symbolism, however, leans more toward taboo than tradition.

It’s interesting to see the Gnostic Mass reported on as part of a “survey of local churches” type of series. I do get the feeling that the Mass in question was “barbaric,” with the priestess remaining clothed throughout. The reporter doesn’t mention a naked priestess, and the description of the space makes it sound as if it is partially outdoors.
