Many ages ago, the Angelic Goddess of Life & Light, Alyara, came to the world and brought with her the teachings of Elishar’s Light, known as the Holy Light. This Holy Light was Elishar’s parting gift to the world after his great sacrifice to end Toldoth evil. Those who practice the teaching philosophies of the Holy Light can unlock the light of their soul granting themselves enlightenment by promoting goodness through compassion, mercy, healing, and protecting life and combating evil and its injustices.
To this day, the church stands as a symbol of good throughout the cosmos. The Church sends its people all over the world, spreading the wisdom and comfort of the Holy Light. They also do what they can to help those around them providing charitable services and combats evil and its injustices with its order of holy knights, the Luminous Order
The followers of the Holy Light (The Light, or Elishar’s Gift) believe that life is the greatest power of the universe—-the energy that animates living creatures is a good in itself. All evil and all things that hinder life’s being experienced to the fullest come from Toldoth, the Dark one. The Holy Light is the source of Life and of all things that contribute to life: every natural and supernatural blessing of health, wholeness and energy.
