Article 30 - Sacred Office

30.1
Sacred Office (link)

Office is a term defining a sacred position and title given life, recognition and personality through the power and authority of Officium in accord with the present Covenant. An Office does not exist, nor possesses any validity or legitimacy unless granted Officium. In accord with the present Covenant, there exists only four valid types of Office being Divine, True, Superior and Inferior:

(i) A Divine Office is an Office whereby a Spiritual Member of One Heaven vows to embody such unique Office, as a custodian and guardian spirit of the law or “Nomos”, in accord with the rules and systems of Officium Systemata (Offices Systems) of Heaven. Divine Offices may then be defined as either a Supreme Divine Office or a Great Divine Office. A Supreme Divine Office is an office purely occupied and vested to a Spiritual Member as a Nomos; whereas a Great Divine Office is an office occupied and vested by both a Spiritual Member as a Nomos and a Living Member as an Officer. A Divine Office is formed through its unique identification and definition within the present sacred Covenant, or associated Covenants and Charters. Thus a Divine Office itself can never be dissolved, usurped, seized or surrendered prior to its expiry. It can only be vacated by a Living Member; and

(ii) A True Office is the instance of the Great Divine Office of Man or the Great Divine Office of Woman as defined by the Divine Creator, whereby each and every Living Member is invested and commissioned from the time of their physical birth until their physical death. Therefore, a True Office can never be usurped, seized, sold or stolen; and

(iii) A Superior Office is the instance or derivative of a Great Divine Office within a valid Ucadia Community as formed through its identification and definition within an instrument, agreement, covenant or document given existence by law or regulation according to the present sacred Covenant and associated covenants and charters. The performance of one or more Oaths or Vows then formalizes the particular office and is sustained so long as such oaths or vows are honored; and

(iv) An Inferior Office is a non-Ucadian office or “Pseudo Office”; and are all non-Ucadian positions whereby a defective or inferior Oath or Vow has been offered, or no Oath provided or where the fiduciary obligations have been abrogated in favor of agent and commercial advantages. All Roman Offices, including all claimed ecclesiastical Offices are Inferior Offices and “Pseudo Offices”.

30.2
Valid Office and Divine Law (link)

The foundation of all civilized rule of law, begins with the acknowledgment that the highest law comes from the Divine Creator of all things in the Universe expressed through the laws of the Universe and then through the reason and spirit of man and woman to make Positive Laws.

An Office is a movable or immovable sacred space in which is held certain rights, authorities, capacities and powers, conferred upon one who has pronounced one or more Oaths or Vows and Sacraments and preserved by their continued honor to the fiduciary principles of good faith, good character and good conscience. One who holds an Office under such fiduciary capacity is called an Officer. An Agent can never legitimately hold an Office.

As all rights and property are by definition sacred, all clerical and professional obligations and responsibilities in relation to the administration, transference and conveyance of any rights or property must be concluded in a valid Office. Any and every transaction or claimed transference or conveyance of property or rights must be concluded within the sacred space and place of a valid Office to have ecclesiastical, moral, lawful and legal force and effect.

By definition, the authority, rights and powers of a Divine Office is superior to any and all other forms of Office, regardless of title or claimed status. No Inferior Office possesses any power, force, authority, right or ability to abrogate or usurp the decisions or authority of a Divine Office. Similarly, no Superior Office or Inferior Office possesses any force, authority, right or ability to abrogate or usurp the authority of a True Office to exercise any of the Natural Rights granted to it, unless the occupant of a True Office willfully and deliberately repudiates the Golden Rule of Law and all forms of logic, reason and sense.

All valid official positions or “offices” of all legitimate governments of all societies within the jurisdiction of the present sacred Covenant therefore depend on the acknowledgment and recognition of the present Covenant as the highest law as the Covenant is nothing less than the perfect expression of Divine Will from the Divine Creator of all things in the Universe.

Furthermore, as the very meaning and purpose of the word “authority” is ecclesiastical, all legitimate authority of all officials of all valid governments of all societies on planet Earth depends upon the acknowledgment and recognition that all authority is ultimately derived from the present Covenant as the highest source of authority being the perfect expression of Divine Law of the Divine Creator of all things in the Universe.

30.3
Officium Systemata (Offices Systems) (link)

All power and authority as vested in any and every form of Office, Commission, Agency, or other position of Trust shall be vested in one supreme spiritual body and system known as the Supremum Officium Systemata, also known as Supreme Offices Systems of Heaven. The Supremum Officium Systemata shall be the highest authority and power as the source of all valid Offices, Commissions, Agency, Powers, Authorities and other positions of Trust and no other.

The Supremum Officium Systemata is uniquely recognized, registered and exemplified as having existence through the Great Register and Public Record of Heaven by the Sacred Trust Number 999999-555555-999999. The existence, identity, authority, purpose and powers of the Supremum Officium Systemata have been duly published in the Ucadia Gazette being the Official Newspaper of Record for each and every Sacred Space-Day-Time of its existence and operation.

30.4

30.5
Appointment to Office (link)

In accord with the present Covenant being the highest rule of law concerning the valid appointment and function of Office, every and all valid appointments, commissions or investitures to Office must comply with the sacrament of Investiture.

Investiture is one of thirty three (33) valid sacred sacraments of Heaven granted and administered through the formal ceremony of the formal bestowal or presentation of a possessory or prescriptive right of Office to an incumbent, including taking possession of the insignia of Office and the power of Officium in accordance with this Covenant and associated approved liturgy.

All Level 6 Higher Order Beings that have never carnated in flesh, who occupy an office legitimately must do so under documented proof of one or more oaths of office whereby they acknowledge the supremacy of Heaven, agree to be bound to honor and upholding the Rule of Law and finally to impartially, fairly and equally serve the interests of their community or Society or Members.

All Members who are granted the same Office are equal to the same Office, with none higher and none lower. By the present Article, when one of the same Office speaks as one, the one speaks for all of the same Office. When one of the same Office calls for assistance, all from the same Office are obliged to assist their fellow Officer and when the highest good standing of an Officer is injured, all Officers and the Divine Law and all International Law has been injured by such disrespect.

Only one from the same Office can appoint another to the same Office, subject to the same sacred Bond of Nomination to Office for all Offices of One Heaven. If one of the same Office of One Heaven is found to be in disgrace, then the Officer who nominated them must resign all commissions.

30.8
Dissolution or Cessation of Office (link)

In respect to Divine Offices, True Offices, Superior Offices and Inferior Offices:

(i) A Divine Office cannot cease to exist, even if a physical and living incumbent fails to adhere to the standards and obligations of such office, or if one or more persons even disavow or seek to diminish or attempt to dissolve such Office; and

(ii) A True Office is dissolved upon the physical death of the incumbent Man or Woman; and

(iii) A Superior Office ceases to exist upon the death of the occupant, or their resignation, or if the occupant deliberately and willfully breaches their obligations and responsibilities according to the Rule of Trust and fails to remedy within the allotted time, causing a default and then fails to honor and acknowledge their culpability, causing termination; and

(iv) An Inferior Office by definition never possess legitimate authority or power, but ceases even to be capable of maintaining the impression of legitimacy when an occupant breaches any notion of Rule of Law, or decency, or good faith, or good character or good conscience.

30.9
Restoration of Superior Office (link)

In respect of an Officer, a Superior Office may only be restored:

(i) After the allotted time and penance determined upon such a disgraced former Trustee and Officer openly and willfully chooses to admit and confess to their dishonor and culpability or being found culpable; and

(ii) The renewal of sacred Oath and Vow upon expiry of the prescribed time and conditions permitting such a man or woman to once again become a valid Trustee.

30.10
Capacity and Competency of Office (link)

In accord with the present sacred Covenant and the most ancient Rule of Law, a Member bound to an Office by a valid Sacred Oath and Vow may only continue to occupy, hold and administer such Office if they act in honor to uphold the law.

When a Living Member as an Officer dishonorably abuses a position of office, they break their solemn Oath and Vow and therefore render the binding to Office null and void.

When a Living Member continues to claim occupancy of an Office and yet deny their obligations and duties, they automatically excommunicate themselves from any spiritual authority, thereby rendering such acts merely enforceable through ignorance, force or fear. Furthermore, such a Living Member automatically makes themselves eligible for punitive sanctions enforceable through the Obligationum Systemata (Enforcement Systems) of Heaven.

When a Living Member seeks to continue to illegitimately claim Office through the use of ignorance, force and fear, denying their dependency on validity from the Divine Creator and Divine Law, and causing damage upon the Earth and physical injury causing death upon the bodies of other Living Members, then such a Living Member envokes upon themselves the full force and power of the Wraiths of the Obligationum Systemata (Enforcement Systems) of Heaven against their physical presence within the temporal realm of the Universe.

30.11
Incompetency and Office (link)

A Member of One Heaven who has consented by their actions to a Certificate of Incompetence to be recorded, gazetted and published against them is ineligible to continue in any official capacity in any society whatsoever.

When a Certificate of Incompetence is issued, the occupier of a certain Office is prevented from exercising any associated Power granted by the present Covenant including Magisterium, Imperium, Sacrum, Sanitatum, Virtus, Custoditum, Alumentum, Interpretum or Visum.

30.12
Apostasy and Office (link)

A Member of One Heaven who has consented by their actions to a Certificate of Excommunication to be recorded, gazette and published against them is without any legitimate authority to hold office as a heretic and apostate.

30.13
Forbidden Offices (link)

Nine Great Divine Offices recognized and honored as part of the four hundred and thirty two Great Offices of One Heaven shall be forbidden to be used, or for any man or woman or spirit to assume the occupation of such Office for the whole life of the present sacred Covenant and all associated bodies, societies and entities. These Offices include the Offices of Christ, Cuilliaéan, Emperor, God King or God Queen, Lucifer, Messiah, Pontiff and Prophet.

Therefore, any man or woman or spirit that proclaims themselves the occupant or holder of any such forbidden Sacred Office henceforth shall commit a grave injury against all of Heaven and Earth and any such claim or subsequent act shall be without validity or authority.
