The Red Mass #1
The Red Mass #1
by Craig E. Ross. (2015) . The Red Mass is a collection of poetry, spells, rituals, and rambling from St. Guillotine and The Communal Order of the Ouroboros.
St. Guillotine & The Red Mass is a magical, music and performance art legion. They are members of The Communal Order of the Ouroboros which is a highly esoteric yet self-proclaimed open coven for all communist witches, warlocks, and other magical and/or mystical marxists. They are dedicated to using any magical means necessary in the abolition of the existing order of capitalist dictatorship. The only initiation to become a member of this anonymous coven, is to become possessed by the Spectre of Communism.
This zine functions as the visual congealment of St. Guillotine's magical performance rituals known as The Red Mass. The purpose of The Red Mass is to invoke the revolutionary gnostic deity of St. Guillotine (for whom the legion takes their name) and evoke the Spectre of Communism. The Spectre of Communism (according to The Communal Order of the Ouroboros) is the communal ghost of every living and dead communist. The gnostic deity of St. Guillotine is a lot older than The Communal Order of the Ouroboros. Historically, St. Guillotine’s origin can be traced back to the French Revolution. However, The Communal Order of the Ouroboros argues that the origin of this deity goes back even further than the Reign of Terror. The Communal Order of the Ouroboros argues that in every moment of revolutionary fervor, throughout human history, St. Guillotine has made their presence known.
