The old Alchemists of the Middle Ages, many of whom were Rosicrucians, stated that in order to

In the old Rosicrucian writings published centuries ago, and which we have already mentioned, we

experience the inner reformation that leads to Inner Peace and external Success.
People often seek Universal Peace, declaring that they intensely desire it, but if we are discontent

Rosicrucians have learned that, by means of an Initiatic process proven over many centuries, people

taken place in society and were able to improve conditions for all, were Rosicrucians who had
previously achieved the great reformation within themselves and found in this way the strength
to undertake the titanic task of assisting all of Humanity.
Are you a sincere soul who feels the inner urge to realize the inner transformation of the Great Reformation?
