...of the same Gnostic bishop who signed
the incorporation documents of
St. Benedict Center?
Charles Coulombe over the years can often be found at the Besant Lodge of Hollywood. It is a theosophical gnostic lodge run by Charles’ good friend and cousin, the gnostic bishop Stephan A. Hoeller. Many a time he is found there on Friday nights to participate in tarot card divination or give a talk, both of which are sponsored by the Theosophical Society – Besant Lodge of Hollywood. He also spends his Halloweens partying at the Besant Lodge and has celebrated at least one birthday there.
When Coulombe or anyone else enters the Besant Lodge before they get through the front door, there is a placard to the left which clearly reads, “Hollywood Theosophical Center Besant Lodge”. It is even illuminated by its own light. This can be seen from photos posted online.

Charles Coulombe portrays himself as an erudite Catholic but ignores the Holy Office’s response concerning Theosophy, “Whether the doctrines, which today are called theosophical, can be in harmony with Catholic doctrine; and thus whether it is permitted to join theosophical societies, attend their meetings, and read their books, daily papers, journals, and writings.— Reply: In the negative in all cases.”

The Gnostic Society’s brochure below (see 2020) clearly reads, “Friday Evening Lectures at 8:00 P.M., Co-Sponsored by The Theosophical Society and featuring Dr. Stephan Hoeller” which is in agreement with The Gnostic Society Ecclesia Gnostica + An Open Sacramental Gnostic Church in Hollywood, California’s website that states, “Lectures are sponsored in part by the Theosophical Society – Besant Lodge of Hollywood.” These lectures Coulombe gave and attended sound exactly what the Holy Office forbid Catholics from attending.
There is good reason the Holy Office has ruled on this matter. Below is an excerpt from an LA Weekly cover story on Stephan Hoeller, which he was so proud of that he posted it in its entirety to one of his websites.
If the above isn’t a total inversion and mockery of the Catholic Mass, what is?
A few more photos for the doubters that these rituals take place in the same room which Coulombe celebrated his birthday, read tarot cards, celebrated Halloween with occultists, and gave lectures sponsored by the Theosophical Society. Notice the stairs, stage with green curtains, and stained glass windows.

If that isn’t terrible enough, The Liberal Catholic Church co-founded by theosophists J. I. Wedgwood and Charles Webster Leadbeater also hold occult services in the Besant Lodge.
What an absolutely terrible and diabolical place to frequent.
The Theosophical Society – Besant Lodge of Hollywood also happens to connect to the home of Stephan A. Hoeller.
One more time, we ask why would a Catholic set foot in the Hollywood Theosophical Center – Besant Lodge? Celebrating a birthday doesn’t cut the mustard... Neither does attending Halloween parties... Nor giving lectures... And tarot card divination is an absolute no! Which leads us to back to ask why did the theosophist freemasonic gnostic bishop of the Hollywood Theosophical Center Besant Lodge sign the incorporation documents and presently serve as the Secretary of the Feeneyite St. Benedict Center - West (California) that Charles Coulombe co-founded?

Who are these two laughing at in the theosophist lodge?
