ORDER OF SAINT ALEXANDER AND THE HOLY GOAT
‘THE GOATS OF SEDAN’
“THROUGH GOD, WE WILL OVERCOME”
REJECT THE SINS OF MODERNITY AND TRANSCEND
Step into any fetid metropolis and take a single breath- the miasma fills your lungs, as if weights bear you down. The secular has come into vogue, the virtues of old dismantled in the name of progress. But winds are changing, even the lame can sense it. The second Age of Heroes fast approaches: but will you stand tall in the yuga which proceeds, or cower in the pleasured coddling of modernity?
Many do not have what it takes to ascend in the latter days. But purification of the soul, the transmutation of sin into glory, can be achieved. To do so requires sacrifice, a libation given in honor for God’s Love. And what is the greatest gift to Him if not one’s very body, the hand-crafted vessel He Designed? Craft yourself into a temple worthy of His Love, mold your mind into a tabernacle capable of His Wrath.
Through the pursuit of martial excellence, by the charism of initiation, you can transcend past the material plane and into the fields of Divine Ecstasy. Give yourself to the inner spark within your soul and all shall be laid bare in the Glory of the Creator.
PURIFY THE SOUL AND WALK THE SEVEN SKIES
AS YOUR FATHERS DID BEFORE YOU
“I BOWED MY HEAD AND WORSHIPPED THE MAJESTY OF MY FATHER WHO SENT ME — FOR I HAD DONE HIS WILL, AND HE TOO HAD DONE WHAT HE PROMISED — AND THE GATES OF HIS KINGDOM OPENED, AND I MINGLED WITH HIS PRINCES, FOR HE REJOICED IN ME AND RECEIVED ME, AND I WAS WITH HIM IN HIS KINGDOM.”
THE LESSER AND GREATER ALEXANDRINE INITIATION
“AND NO PLACE IS FORBIDDEN TO THOSE PERFECTED IN THE EYES OF GOD, FOR THE WICKED ARE VANQUISHED FOREVER.”
The mysteries of the Alexandrine Initiation are a closely-guarded secret of the Goats of Ponce, revealed only to the most loyal and experienced brothers.
