The Pilgrimage (186US)

in Arès (France) from January 15 to April 13, 1974

The Revelation of Arès, a Word from the Maker, is not about God or religion.
It is about the coming man (30/13), penitence (16/17) and Life (24/3-4).
Whether the Word was revealed by Isaiah circa 760 BC,
or Jesus in 30 in Galilee (Palestine) or in 1974 in Arès (France),
or  Muhammad in 700 in Arabia,
or God's Light in 1977 in Arès (France),
not two human beings can understand it in like manner.
This is why the Maker has made the Pilgrimage to Arès a time to surpass oneself,
forget about differences, withdraw to the Core of Cores (xxxiv/6) or the fundamentals, or love,
a Place where all possible ways of understanding and praying vanish behind Life.

Chapelle des Théophanies

The Pilgrimage compound. The House of the Saint's Word where
the Creator manifested Himself to Michel Potay five times
from October 2 to Novembre 22, 1977, in Arès (France)






The Arès Pilgrimage as well as The Revelation of Arès
do not belong in any religion.
The words regarded as the ones that founded the Pilgrimage
were uttered by the Creator on November 22, 1977
:

Revelation of Arès xLi/1. I am here.
2. You come here, the brothers come here.
3. The lip seizes and holds the Fire from My Hand.
4. The brow burns.
5. The Fire enters the man.
6. Would the spide (spider) suck the Fire ?
7. Call on the brothers and brothers, "Come and seize the Fire!
8. "When your foot is down below, your shout flies off high."
9. Forty footsteps tie My Strength and My Favor together where the forehead hits the stone, where the eye weeps jus as your eye is weeping.
10. where the pikes of My Fire pierce evil
11. My Hand hurts the man, (but) the man lives,
12. his hand made bigger climbs My Arm.
13. Here the man's hand seizes and holds My Hand.

Every year Brother Michel goes on Pilgrimage to Arès in order to live the supernatural Events again, which he witnessed in this very place in 1974 and 1977, and fill his penitence and prophetic action with Fire again. His brothers and sisters, that have faith in The Revelation of Arès go with him there for similar reasons, for they are witnesses and prophets in his wake.
The Pilgrimage to Arès does not abolish other pilgrimages on Earth. It gives them a final meaning, that is, an only Creator exists, the very plain Father of Good, whathever name men give him: Maker, God, the Eternal, Allah, Father, Brahma, and so on. He is the Saint That gets you to forget about sin, time and histoiry, which are but makings of man. The Pilgrimage reminds men, whatever religion they may have, whatever pack they may belong in, of the fact that they are a special race that has to change into good so as to avoid falling into the sin of sins (38/2), that is, sinking into evil  for ever.

Why go on Pilgrimage to Arès?

Neither an Arès Pilgrim nor anybody else in quest of salvation is under a religious obligation of any kind. The only path to salvation, whether personal or collective (28/7), is penitence, which for the time being consists in loving one's neighbor, forgiving offenses, making peace with everybody everywhere, thinking and speaking with kind-hearted intelligence (32/5), being free (10/10) from all prejudices, and for the future preparing to share everything with everybody. So there is no more obligation to go on Pilgrimage to Arès than to pray in such or such a manner. The Pilgrimage to Arès, however, may be a strong necessity of personal conscience,

Who may come as a pilgrim ?

Any human, provided he or she is not a stubborn sinner or unrepentant (26/11, 36/6) with intent to cause disruption or coming purely out of curiosity. Any human, whatever religion or philosophy he or she has, is a Child of the Father (13/5) and is called on (4/4). A suggestion is made to any pilgrim, who has no ties with Arès Pilgrims, that he or she adopts their habits on the sacred place : the tunic (a tunic is lent : the tunic covers the clothes and so erases the differences between sexes and personal states), bare feet.

Who welcomes you?

Some Arès Pilgrims. Arès Pilgrims, first a nickname in the 70s, has become the usual name of the disciples of The Revelation of Arès who now take on the cost of the maintenance and service of the Pilgrime, managed by L'Œuvre du Pèlerinage d'Arès (an association under the French 1905 Law).
The Arès Pilgrims do not form a religion, but they form a liberating spiritual movement, so they do not keep jealous eyes on their sanctuary. The Spirit (33/4-8) of The Revelation of Arès is of openness. As they are apostles of the rebirth of Life (24/5) in themselves by penitence and in the world by the harvest of penitents, they welcome all people of love, forgiveness and peace, free of all prejudics, who believe that there is one Truth, that the world has to change (Revelation of Arès 28/7).

Where are you welcomed?

You enter the Pilgrimage premises at 46, avenue de la Libération in Arès (Gironde, France) into the house where Jesus appeared in 1974, who on the Father's Behalf dictated The Gospel Given at Arès (First part of The Revelation of Arès). This house is not shown through — You shall not make this place a sanctuary (40/2), Jesus said —. Unless you are a regular pilgrim, you will be told all pieces of information you need there (see Helpful information below).

What books are at your disposal?

The Revelation of Arès which contains The Gospel Given in Arès (1974) and The Book (1977), the Bible and the Quran. The other kinds of revelation are miscellaneous and unforeseeable so much that are not laid in the praying hall. However, any pilgrim can bring along the books from which he or she has been used to praying.

Free prayer; no ceremony or ritual.

Only respect and discretion are required from the pilgrims. The True (xxxiv/1-4) blossoms like spring flowers in any place where the Breath wafts (2/14) and humans intend anything but Good. Salvation is not given to men by words, which are just mnemonic devices, but men get it by practicing Good or penitence (30/11), the Fire of which pilgrims, whetever habits of faith they may have, go to Arès to rekindle.
A believer of a religion, whether jewish, or christian, or muslim and so on, may feel stunned  being given a free hand  to pray in the way he or she wants as well as seeing the joy of the Arès Pilgrims when they share their piety habits (the tunic, the bare feet, etc.) with him or her, even though they do not force him or her to do so. It is because he or she does not realize immediately thet an Arès Pilgrims is just a man or woman of Good, a religionless penitent who can't tell the difference between all of the penitents on earth, whetever metaphysics they may have privately.
The Arès Pilgrims themselves are various.There are the ones who have chosen to belong in the small remnant and take great care to duplicate the specific mission of the witness or prophet of The Revelation of Arès, but do not consider themselves as topmost. There are the ones who follow less strict paths for varied reasons and at different standards. In any case, however, The Revelation of Arès brings spiritual life into proportion and makes it a quest for Good, for regaining the Creator's image and likeness (Genesis 1/26-27) within each creature that has set about loving (2/12, 25/2-7, 27/4, 28/10-15) too much (12/7) if necessary,  forgiving (12/4), making peace (xxv/11, 13/8, 15/5, 28/15, 36/17), restoring spiritual intelligence (32/5), becoming free (1/10) of all prejudices. This is how man is going to make the Day (31/8) of happiness (26/23). The Arès Pilgrims are not gathered together in a register, or by sharing a dogma or a visible sign. What gathers them is the very strong conviction that only Good can triumph over Evil, create the soul and save individuals as well as the world.

The Arès Pilrimage where and when?

In summer at Arès, France (33740, Gironde),
46 avenue de la Libération,

Three phases:
from June 21 to July 4,
from July 12 to July 25,
from August 2 to August 15. 

For the three phases, the House of the Saint's Word (where the Creator spoke in 1977) is open
on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 18:00 to 21:00,
on Friday 08:30 to 11:30
on Saturday and Sunday, also on July 14 and August 15 (except when they fall on a Friday) 17:30 to 21:00

Each pilgrim prays and/or meditates freely and is careful not to bother other pilgrims.

Helpful information :
On arriving the new pilgrim is not asked his or her name or what religion he or she belongs in. Only two questions are asked to him or her, "Do you believe that The Revelation of Arès, the Bible and the Quran are from the Creator?" and "Do you love all of men and do you forgive all of their offenses?"
If he or she answers yes to both questions, he or she is welcomed by brothers and sisters, who reminds him or her of the meaning of the Pilgrimage to Arès.
If he or she answers yes to one question only, the brothers or sisters pay closer attention to him or her.
If he or she answers no to both questions, he or she is asked a third question, "Do you think that an especially important event has taken place here? Are you here to ponder it? Will you have respect for the Pilgrimage peace and routine?"
If he or she answers yes to this question, the reception brothers or sisters will pay very close attention to him or her before one of them goes with him to the exedra, which is the anteroom to the praying hall.
If he or she answers no to the question, we will be very sorry not to let him or her in.

What are you to know, if you want to be a member of the small remnant (24/1) some day?
There is nowhere any register, or central filing system, or ritual or conditions of membership in the Assembly of those who believe in The Revelation of Arès, because, on principle, they at full term, on the Day when there is no more day or night, when the Light covers everything (31/8), will be all of the Creator's Children, all of the Good men. Due to this, you can tell only two kinds of disciples of The Revelation of Arès : Those of the small remnant — The Arès Pilgrims spelt by the witness with upper-case P — and the others, the great melting-pot of the Arès pilgrims spelt with lower-case p. The former and the latter are penitents, however, so none of them is a guaranteed elect, fot no one can know who is saved and who is not saved (11/3).
Only the Arès Pilgrims of the small remnant are definable, because they as strictly as possible understand The Revelation of Arès and put it into practice as the prophet do. The others understand The Revelation of Arès and put it into practice in varied many ways.
But all of Arès Pilgrims and Arès pilgrims are radically different from traditional believers who seek salvation in the dogmas, laws and prejudices of a religion. An Arès Pilgrim as well as an Arès pilgrim is a free (10/10) conscience. He or she contributes to the salvation or change of the world (28/7) by his or her own penitence (the practice of love, forgiveness, peace, free good-hearted intelligence) and by his or her continuous harvest of new penitents. His or her faith is conscienced (xxii/14), that is, based on the conscience that nothing but The Revelation of Arès explains all historical Scriptures which are crammed with books by men (35/12). Arès Pilgrims as well as Arès pilgrims work together towards the revival of  the genuine Christianity of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew ch. 5 to 7).

The Fire of plain spiritual life, which is the quest for Good,
is what people come and rekindle within themselves in Arès for the Pilgrimage time.
