The Sharpening of a Thought

In the meantime, the Cathar awakening was beginning to arouse a real interest in primarily German and Anglo-Saxon practices like the occult, theosophy and others: it evoked Montségur, the Holy Grail! Endless speculations!

As for Gadal, he appeared to pursue quite a different goal, a far-reaching goal:
He wanted to reveal the hidden, pure side of a Christianity that was lived as a path of initiation by men and women who were seized in their soul by 'the Christ Spirit'.

He waited for his time to come and continued his studies in the field. The Cathar initiation mystery was partly buried in the caves of Ussat-Ornolac. He became certain that those numerous caves scattered within the walls of the ‘Sacred Mountain', forming a network of underground galleries, had played a key role in the Cathars’ initiation practices.

If Montségur, a spiritual high place, represented the visible part of the Cathar phenomenon, the initiation caves were the matrix from which the Cathar priesthood, the ‘Perfect’, emerged.
