The Caves Speak…

That which Antoine Gadal introduced there must have been a revelation for some of his friends. No historian had ever mentioned these things; no book had ever revealed any aspect of it.
Only a few archives of the Inquisition – but they were still not available at that time – evoked the definite presence of Cathar Perfects in the Three Churches of the valley.

In the ‘The Heritage of the Cathars’, Gadal says this:
’The Church-spoulga of Ornolac, where the pious Loup of Foix had converted to the faith in the Consoler, is striking because of its walls in ruins, its doors, ramparts, enclosures…. But the chapel of Bethlehem is well preserved. Ah, if it could speak and repeat what it has heard!
If we could know the major questions treated in the shelter of that rock: God, the Universe, the Creation, the Fall, Salvation through Christ, Satan’s conversion, the extinction of Hell, the sidereal Purgatory, the Migration of the souls from star to star … if we knew the meditations of which that platform was so often and for so long the witness!’
