Universal Christian Gnostic Church
The Johannite Church (Full title: l'Église Johannite des Chrétiens Primitifs, “The Johannite Church of Primitive Christians”), is a Gnostic Christian denomination founded by the French priest Bernard-Raymond Fabré-Palaprat in 1804.
The term Johannine community refers to an ancient Christian community which greatly emphasized the teachings of Jesus and his apostle John.
Their particular Christian practices, rituals, and theology may be referred to as Johannine Christianity. Biblical scholars and historians of Christianity assert the notion of such a community that drew heavily from Johannine literature.
Our learning was based on a book, L'Évangile ésotérique de Saint-Jean (The Esoteric Gospel of Saint John) and the difference between the new esoteric and occult studies and the actual gnosis practice at the beginning of the Christian era.
Gnosis is the common Greek noun for knowledge. The term was used among various Hellenistic religions and philosophies in the Greco-Roman world. It is best known for its implication within Gnosticism, where it signifies a spiritual knowledge or insight into humanity's fundamental nature as divine, leading to the deliverance of the divine spark within humanity from the constraints of earthly existence.
Gnosis at UCGC, where Christian thought is the spiritual knowledge of a saint (one who has obtained theosis or mystically enlightened human being. Within the cultures of the term's provenance (Byzantine and Hellenic), Gnosis was a knowledge or insight into the infinite, divine and uncreated in all and above all,[ rather than knowledge strictly into the finite, natural or material world. Gnosis is transcendental as well as mature understanding. It indicates direct spiritual, experiential knowledge and intuitive knowledge, mystic rather than rational or reasoned thinking. Gnosis is gained through understanding at which one can arrive via inner experience or contemplation, such as an internal epiphany of intuition, and external epiphany, such as the theophany. We emphasized that such knowledge is not secret knowledge but rather a maturing, transcendent form of knowledge derived from contemplation since knowledge cannot be derived from knowledge, but rather, knowledge can only be derived from theory, to witness, see (vision) or experience. Knowledge, thus, plays an essential role concerning theosis, deification/personal relationship with God and theoria, the revelation of the divine vision of God. Gnosis, as the proper use of the spiritual or Noetic faculty, plays a vital role in Christian theology.
UCGC is a Johannine community of Johannine Christianity from John The Baptizer and John The Evangelist. It is based on early Christianity, also called the Early Church, describing the era of the Christians before the First Council of Nicaea in 325. Christianity centers on the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth.
Gospel of John In the prologue, the Gospel identifies Jesus as the Logos or Word. In Ancient Greek philosophy, logos meant the principle of cosmic reason. In this sense, it was similar to the Hebrew concept of Wisdom, God's companion and intimate helper in creation. The Hellenistic Jewish philosopher Philo merged these two themes when he described the Logos as God's creator of and mediator with the material world. According to Stephen Harris, the Gospel adapted Philo's description of the Logos, applying it to Jesus, the incarnation of the Logos.
The Johannine epistles, the Epistles of John, or the Letters of John are three of the catholic epistles of the New Testament.
The Book of Revelation is the final book of the New Testament. Written in Koine Greek, its title is derived from the first word of the text: apokalypsis, meaning 'unveiling' or 'revelation.' The Book of Revelation is the only apocalyptic book in the New Testament canon.
The feast day of Saint John in the Catholic Church, Anglican Communion, and the Lutheran Calendar is on 27 December, the third day of Christmastide. In the Tridentine Calendar, he was commemorated on the following days up to and including 3 January, the Octave of the 27 December feast. This Octave was abolished by Pope Pius XII in 1955. The traditional liturgical colour is white.
The first witness to Johannine theology among the Fathers of the Church is Ignatius of Antioch, whose Letter to the Philippians some claim references John 3:8 and alludes to John 10:7-9., John 14:6. Polycarp of Smyrna quotes about the "antichrist" in his Epistle to the Philippians 7:1, a sure reference from the letters of John because the antichrist doctrine is not found in the textual record before the Johannine letters. Justin Martyr also alludes to ideas.
The earliest testimony to the author was that of Papias, preserved in fragmentary quotes in Eusebius's history of the Church. Eusebius says that two different Johns must be distinguished, John the Apostle and John the Presbyter, with the Gospel assigned to the Apostle and the Book of Revelation to the Presbyter.
Irenaeus's witness based on Papias represents the tradition in Ephesus, where John the Apostle is reputed to have lived. Irenaeus was a disciple of Polycarp, thus in the second generation after the apostle. He states unequivocally that the apostle is the author of the Gospel.

Did Eric Michel have to go on all these routes and experiment with other Christian denominations to be the stronger Catholics of today?
Did the Holy Spirit direct him?
Was he under the helping hands of a saint or saints?
Did the Virgin Mary lead him to be consecrated to Jesus via Mary of Nazareth?
Can we link something or some person from the Catholic to his path?
If we go by dates and Feasts:
First Ordination, December 7, the feast of St Ambrose, what could be the link? Father Ambrose Lafortune
Eric Michel is a big fan, like many Quebeckers of the 50s to the 80s, with this priest...
Ambroise Lafortune, born December 5, 1917, in Montreal and died May 8, 1997, in the same city at the age of 79, is a Quebec secular priest and writer.
Ambroise Lafortune was ordained priest in Martinique in 1945.
He is very involved in the scout movement in Montreal and Martinique; Eric Michel has a long involvement history with the Boy Scouts.
We are on the eve of the feast of the Immaculate Conception.

4. August 1, Re-Ordained UU, on the day of St. Sofia. Christian theology received the Old Testament personification of Wisdom (Hebrew Chokhmah) and the concept of Wisdom (Sophia) from Greek philosophy, especially Platonism. In Christology, Christ the Logos as God the Son was identified with Divine Wisdom from the earliest times. There has also been a minority position which identified Wisdom with the Holy Spirit instead. Furthermore, in mystical interpretations forwarded in Russian Orthodoxy, known as Sophiology, Holy Wisdom as a feminine principle came to be identified with the Theotokos (Mother of God) rather than with Christ himself. Similar interpretations were proposed in feminist theology as part of the "God and Gender" debate in the 1990s. According to an Eastern explanation, the cult of Divine Wisdom, Faith, Hope, and Charity were the daughters of Wisdom (known as Sofia in Roman Martyrology), a widow in Rome. The daughters suffered martyrdom during Hadrian's persecution of Christians: Faith, twelve, was scourged and went unharmed when boiling pitch was poured on her and was beheaded; Hope, ten, and Charity, nine, were also beheaded after emerging unscathed from a furnace; and Wisdom died three days later while praying at their graves. In the Septuagint, the Greek noun sophia is the translation of Hebrew חכמות ḥoḵma, "wisdom." Wisdom is a central topic in the "sapiential" books, i.e. Proverbs, Psalms, Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, Book of Wisdom, Wisdom of Sirach, and to some extent, Baruch (the last three are Deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament). The identification of Christ with God's Wisdom is ancient and was explicitly stated by the early Church Fathers, including Justin Martyr and Origen. The most straightforward form of identifying Divine Wisdom with Christ comes in 1 Corinthians 1:17–2:13. There is a minor position among the Church Fathers, which held that Wisdom is identical not to Christ but to the Holy Spirit. This was advanced by Theophilus of Antioch (d. 180) and Irenaeus of Lyons (d. 202/3).
5 April 6 Eric Michel & EMMI-FAICL joined the Order of the Franciscans of the Eucharist. Feast of Saint Irenaeus of Sirmium was an Illyrian bishop of Sirmium in Pannonia, which is now Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia. He was bishop during the reign of Diocletian. He refused to offer pagan sacrifices, even at the behest of his family. The governor of Pannonia condemned him and then beheaded on 24 March 304.
2023 October 22, I am Fr. Michael Carlson from Heralds of the Gospel, and it is with great joy that I welcome you to your Consecration to Our Lady Course! On this Sunday, we pray for the Church, whose delegates are gathered in synod at the Vatican. May the work of this assembly bear fruit for the future. May faith support our prayer and hope keep us faithful to the Gospel. Father, we pray! Feast of St. Pope John Paul II.

The Apostle Peter's ministry, like those of the other eleven apostles, began in 30 A.D. on the day of Pentecost. It ended with his martyrdom in either 67 or 68, which meant his ministry lasted 37 to 38 years. The original apostle who served the longest, however, is John. His ministry lasted an amazing 70 years until his death around 100 A.D.!

It has no physical items we can use to prove the path linking Eric Michel to Catholicism, with the help of the Holy Spirit. or the Virgin Mary?
Maybe or maybe not!!!
Except observing a fact.
