Who is Helena Blavatsky?
Why does it matter to Catholics?
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831–1891) was an occultist and Freemason who co-founded Theosophy, the source of the Ascended Masters teaching. Ms. Blavatsky founded Lucifer Magazine. She is credited by historians to be the mother of the New Age movement. There is a strong connection between her teachings and those of Fr. Richard Rohr and Fr. James Martin. Blavatsky would try to unify religious systems, blending Gnosticism and western esotericism with eastern mysticism and Egyptian mystery schools. She published 800 articles in the theosophical magazine called Lucifer. She was a Satanist. Her primary work was called The Secret Doctrine published in 1888. Here is what she says about satan:
Satan will now be shown in the teachings of the secret doctrine allegorized as good and sacrifice a god of wisdom under different names. Satan, the serpent of Genesis is the real creator and benefactor. The father of spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the harbinger of light, bright and radiant Lucifer who opened the eyes of the woman created by Jehovah and he who was the first to whisper in her ear "you eat there of you shall be as Elohim knowing good and evil". He can only be regarded in light of a savior. Lucifer is divine and terrestrial light the holy ghost and Satan at one at the same time and it now stands proven that Satan is in us. He is our mind, our tempter, our redeemer, our intelligent liberator, and savior from pure animalism. (source)
She taught that satan, Lucifer in the story of Genesis, liberated man from the confines and constructs Jehovah imposed on them. She claims Jehovah was evil for trapping and containing mankind and these systems of thought that prohibited freedom of thinking and freedom of the will.
Blavatsky claims that Lucifer came and illuminated them and freed them from that bondage and enlightened them and in one sense continues to do that every time we actualize self-sovereignty in our thinking.
She's a Luciferian by definition. Her publishing company today is Lucy's Trust which is an abridged version of Lucifer and they are the ones who introduced the Ascended Masters teaching to the world. They called them "The Great White Brotherhood". Their work is premised on communication with and expecting the return of the Ascended Masters. It was Luciferians who first taught us about these spirits.
Blavatsky was succeeded by Alice Baily in the 1920's who continued to channel the Ascended Masters. In her book, “Initiation Solar and Human” she explains the origins of the Ascended Masters. Apparently this is being channeled by Joakul, one of these Ascended Masters, speaking through her and giving her a history of the descent of the masters to earth after the great spirit descent.
After the great spirit, descent of the spiritual masters to the earth, the work they planned to do was systematized offices which were appointed and the processes of evolution all the departments of nature were brought under the conscious wise guidance of this initial brotherhood. This hierarchy of brothers of light still exists and the work goes on steadily they are all in physical existence either in dense physical bodies such as many of the masters employ or in etheric bodies such as the more exalted helpers and the lord of the world occupy.
Several of the masters with physical bodies dwell in the Himalayan mountains in a secluded spot … far from the ways of men but the greater number are scattered all over the world dwelling in different places in various nations unrecognized and unknown, yet forming each in his own place a focal point for the energy of the Lord of the World.

These Ascended Masters descended to earth and appointed offices in different jurisdictions around the world, where they started systematically teaching mankind.
More about Theosophy
Theosophy is a system of esoteric philosophy concerning or seeking direct knowledge of presumed mysteries of being in nature, particularly concerning the nature of divinity. It's considered to be a broader field of aestheticism referring to the hidden knowledge of wisdom but offers the individual enlightenment and salvation.

These are the same Ascended Masters that Elizabeth Clare Prophet channeled. She released weekly channeling called "Pearls of Wisdom".
Compare the words of these Ascended Masters to those of Richard Rohr, who says "This stuff just comes to me".
