This year, a new
prayer hall has been built south of the narthex. It
is an extension to the historic House of the Saint's
Word ; the reception area has virtually doubled. A
new side bell tower doubles the old one, the weight
and the bell swinging of which have weakened the
northern wall, which requires strengthening works.
Due to bad weather and firms behind with the
planning the works are being finished at the last
minute when the 2018 Pilgrimage starts. We ask the
pilgrims who will be present on June 21th to be
lenient towards the possibility of incompletenes.
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
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.
The Arès Pilgrimage just as The Revelation of Arès
do not belong in any religion.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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.
