The Matrix of Mysticism – A Call for a New Reformation – is on the cutting-edge pioneering into rarely-explored theological and religious history of Roman Catholicism. This book reveals that while under influence of humanistic and mystical teachings of the Roman Church, many Catholic priests committed vicious acts of homosexual molestation against Catholic adolescent boys and children. Using the 2002 clergy sexual-abuse scandal as a launching pad, the author exposes the cause and effect relationship between Catholicism’s celibate-monastic mysticism and its long history of clerical sexual dysfunctions. The author documents how the Catholic Church’s occult Gnostic/Neoplatonic worldview regarding the antagonistic differences between the flesh and spirit became the motivating cause for its history of clerical sexual promiscuity and antifeminine mind-set as well as its rationale to deify Mary, the mother of Jesus, as an incarnation of the divine feminine. Martin Hudale spent 12 years in pre-Vatican II Catholic boarding schools and seminaries. During this time, he studied various Roman Catholic doctrines pertaining to dogmatic, moral, ecclesiastical, sacramental and patristic theology. He was required to study Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy along with logic, epistemology and the Latin and Greek classical literature. As a result, he has the background experience, knowledge and credibility to write this book. After being ordained a Catholic priest, he worked four years at an inner-city parish church in the United States where his awareness of the homosexual and immoral lifestyles among some of his fellow priests was an important factor causing him to leave the priesthood. After he became a born-again Christian at the age of 40, he spent approximately 25 years researching and writing this book while receiving an M.S.degree in Counseling Psychology. He is presently married to his wife of 35 yrs. and the father of three adult children.
