Blog note: ‘50’ (5×10) equals Satanic influence (5) of men on earth x ‘allness’ or ‘physical completeness of things on earth’ (10). This equates to evil being about as bad as it gets, it’s fullness or completeness. The article states that is has taken ‘50’ years for witchcraft to see a ‘boom in the popularity of ancient rites as a practice and a spectacle’. The practitioners are even upfront in claiming that their actions and activities performed in a ‘black mass’ is to reaffirm their pact with the devil. Their words, not mine. Their intent is a complete and total rejection of Christ, his offer of forgiveness and salvation and their rejection of eternal life as promised by Christ. They are completely and totally given up and in alignment with the serpent.
In Mexico, modern witches celebrate ancient rites. Part One.

CATEMACO, Mexico (RNS) — On the first Friday of March, sorcerers, witches, sahumadores, healers, snake-handlers, herbalists and spiritual guides appeared as they have for almost 50 years in the streets of this small town in the southern Mexican state of Veracruz, heading for “La Punta,” the village’s ceremonial center on a spit of land that juts into the Catemaco Lagoon.
Although the history of witchcraft in Mexico goes back to pre-Hispanic times, the last half-century has seen a boom in the popularity of ancient rites as a practice and a spectacle. According to Catemacoan history, witches performed ceremonies and rituals on the first Friday of the third month of the year to renew their supernatural powers.
At La Punta, a black mass is led by a senior sorcerer, who gives thanks for the gift of “Mother Earth, water, fire and air,” according to a local herbalist who goes by the name of the goddess Pachamama. The mass aims to “get rid of all the dark negative energies and cleanse our souls,” she said, adding that it is said that in the hills surrounding Catemaco there are sorcerers who perform “a black mass to reaffirm their pact with the devil.”
The Olmec, an ethnic group that inhabited Veracruz 1,500 years before Christ, were astronomers, and the Catemaco rites are held in March to mark the alignment of the planets and to honor the beginning of the spring and the renewal of the harvest.
