Ave Pachamama

L'Osservatore Romano

Last Friday, at The Pontifical Gregorian University, Scott Hahn and Brant Pitre gave a joint lecture on Pachamama to lay to rest the recent controversy and clarify Her true identity. In Andean Sacred Tradition, Pachamama is:

• Cosmic Mother

• Mother Earth

• Mother of the sun god

• Fertility Goddess

• Associated with harvest festivals

• Associated with mountains

• In Pythagorean numerology her numerical value is 3 

Pitre and Hahn then drew attention to many astounding typological adumbrations:

1. The New Eve

The man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living (Gen 3:20)

As fertility goddess and Mother Earth, Pachamama is a type of Eve.

2. The New Jerusalem

In her association with mountains, Pachamama is a type of Mount Zion, the Temple Mount, and the New Jerusalem. 

3. Mother of God

I am the light of the world (Jn 8:12; 9:5). 

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth…She gave birth to a son (Rev 12:1-2,5)

• Jesus is the light of the world (i.e. sunlight as a spiritual metaphor).

• Pachamama is mother of the sun god.  

• Pachamama is the Cosmic Mother clothed in the sun, with a starry crown and lunar slippers

4. Hostess of the Messianic banquet

The wedding at Cana (John 2) prefigures the Messianic banquet in the new age. Pachamama is hostess of the Messianic banquet by virtue of her association with harvest festivals as well as her role as the sun god's mother (see under #3).

5. Eschatological icon of the Trinity

In Pythagorean numerology, her name has the numerical value of 3.

6. Mother of the Church

26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home (Jn 19:26-27).

"Your mother"=Pachamama 

7. Queen of Heaven

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head (Rev 12:1).

As the Cosmic Mother, Pachamama is the Queen of Heaven

8. The Assumption of Pachamama

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.(Rev 12:1)

St. John saw Pachamama in heaven. Mother Earth ascended. 

9. The Immaculate Preconception

As Cosmic Mother and Mother Earth, Pachamama was never conceived in sin inasmuch as she was never conceived at all. Rather, she is the source of all conception. 

10. Hyperdulia

16 He then brought me into the inner court of the house of the Lord, and there at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men. With their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the sun in the east (Ezk 8:16)

Just as worshippers in the temple bowed down to the sun, Catholics should bow down to Pachamama, mother of the sun god. 

11. Vicar of the Queen

The reason there are so many queens in the Vatican is because the Vatican represents the Vicar of Pachamama, Queen of Heaven. 

Quoting from St. Alphonsus Liguori's The Glories of Pachamamma, Scott Hahn said "You can't have God as your Father unless you have Pachamama as your Mother. You can't have Jesus as your King unless you have Pachamama as your Queen."


  1. In the meantime, iconoclastic Catholics attack the sacred image of the Most Holy Pachamama

  2. Coincidentally a Catholic video game developer recently released a game called Pacha-Man in which the player controls Pacha-Man while Pacha-Man eats pellets shaped like eucharistic wafers and avoiding the Holy Ghost, Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Bible. Pacha-Man powers up after eating objects such as the Vatican, the Magisterium, the Vicar of Christ, Tridentine theology, among others. The game became an instant hit and a Virgin Mary themed sequel called Pacha-Mama is said to be in production.

  3. I can't tell if this article is serious or not :/

    1. That's because you don't have spies in the Vatican like Steve does.
