The Palmarian Catholic Church: a lie that lasted 40 years


This article looks at the Palmarian Church mainly through the lens of psychology. Now that is a valid discipline to evaluate this Church, but we also need to look at it through the sociological and theological lens. The article on the one hand talks about the Church and then later describes it as a sect derived from Catholicism. It clearly had a self understanding that it was itself the Catholic Church and had superceded the Roman Catholic Church which it viewed as being in error.

The kind of people who joined the Palmarians here in Ireland would have been those who resisted the modernisation of the Catholic Church represented by Vatican II. Funny enough they view Paul VI positively even though he was the Pope that produced the mass in the vernacular and stopped the Tridentine Latin Mass.

His successor John Paul II is seen as an anti pope even though he was very conservative?

The Palmarians here in Ireland were opposed to the mass in English and wanted to retain the Latin. Some were Irish speakers and wished to use Latin rather than the majority English language in which the new mass was produced. Rigid dress codes were appealing to people who wanted boundaries.

This year we commemorate the the Revolutionary beginnings of the the Irish State.  It was a mixed group of socialists, Mystical Catholics who mixed up pagan notions of blood sacrifice, with the Catholic notion of the cross. After the British part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland left this part of Ireland, the Irish Free State became an extreme Catholic State. The Revolutionary Republicanism was mixed with Catholicism. In Spain the two strands were totally opposed to each other and Catholicism hated the Communists and Republicans. Franco was able to bring an authoritarian form of Catholicism to the fore. It was this mileau which appealed to the Irish as a firm authoritative and authoritarian militant Catholicism which was passing away here.

Read an interesting article by Seamus Murphy SJ entitled Dark Liturgy, outlining how this developed:

Further reflections of a former Educoist.


When an ex Educoist such as myself awakens from the brainwashing spell cast by Tony Quinn and begins to write the truth concerning his Educo cult, we are viewed by other Educoists as being negative, disgruntled people who are merely seeking to blame Tony Quinn for the hardships we have faced through being unduly influenced by his so called “teachings.”  It is often said that it is our own fault that we fell under his spell of programming and hypnosis to live a materialistic lifestyle in accordance with his so called “good life” ideal.  Everyone likes to think that they wouldn’t be hypnotised in this manner, that people who are brainwashed by cults are idiots or weak minded, but you would be very wrong in thinking that.  Most of Quinn’s seminar participants were highly successful business people before meeting Tony Quinn.  Indeed a Presidential candidate for Kenya named Martha Karua attended a seminar in Monte Carlo in 2013 which I was present at. She was sent on it by Susan Morrice, an oil rich millionaire. So the people who attend these seminars are far from idiots but they are still very much human and can be manipulated just like all of us, despite their apparent outer successes in life.
