My Selection from the Psalter of Our Lady for Summer relating to Rose Heart

Psalter of Our Lady
These 150 psalms are taken from the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary written by St. Bonaventure and have been painstakingly adapted by Mr Glenn King and Madria Pamela Lanides. They will be incorporated into our Hours (a work in progress), our liturgy and our Feast Day prayers. These psalms are taken from the Living Stream in the West.
For the most part, we have removed archaic language however, Thee and Thou, when referring to Our Lady, denotes honor and the respect that is due to Her.
Our thanks to Mr. King for this valuable service to the Filianic/Deanic community.

PSALM 108: O, Lady, heed my praise
O Lady, heed my praise:
and deign to accept this Psalter dedicated to Thee.
Look upon the will of my heart: and make my affection well-pleasing to Thee.
Hasten to visit Thy servants:
under the protection of Thy Mantle may they be preserved unhurt.
May they receive through Thee the illumination of Lady Mati:
and the charis of Lady Sushuri.
O Lady, look upon the contrite of heart:
and revive them by the ointment of piety.

[ Charis: Joseph H. Thayer made some significant observations concerning the meaning of charis: “that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness…good-will, loving-kindness, favor… charis is used pre-eminently of that kindness by which God [Dea] bestows favors even upon the ill-deserving, and grants to sinners the pardon of their offences, and bids them accept of eternal salvation through Christ [Di Jana].”
My Favourite Selections and Comments
I have selected 13 psalms that I regard as suitable for Summer and the Fiery Heart symbolic of the Divine unconditional love of Madria Dea.
Personally, I adore these:
Psalm 27: I will cry and Thou shalt hear me, which expresses my confusion and neglect of the Goodness and Truth of Dea who is in every place, throughout all the manifest realms and internally, in our temple heart. Wherever and whenever, Dea offers a warm welcome.
Psalm 128: My enemies have often troubled me, which is related to the above, but instead of personal and internal conflicts this psalm seeks protection from external negative influences.
Psalm 41: As the deer longs for the sparkling brook, poetically expresses the longing for Dea that I have felt all this human life. Which also reminds me of the Scripture:

The Filianic Scriptures, New Celestial Union
Version (Second Edition, Third Update)
Title 3, Chapter 8
Filianic Texts, or the collected sayings of the Daughter of Thea
The Way of Simplicity
1. Unless your souls are simple as the running deers, My children, and your hearts as little
children filled with wonder, how shall you attain liberation? 2. Let your ways be gentle as the milk-white dove, and graceful as the gliding of the swallow. 3. For there are ways and rhythms in the course of life, of day and night, of seasons and the moon, by which all life, all thought, all work are governed, 4. and these movements are the breath of the Divine, reflected in the highest spheres and every living thing.
Psalm 31: Blessed are they, because the imagery reminds me of Dea’s Great Celestial Realm and living in Spiritual Unity represented by an abundant verdant Paradise.
Psalm 98: Our Lady Reigns, related to the above as it beautifully describes Dea in Heaven with Her Janati / angels, streaming Her powers/virtues throughout the manifest realms.

Judge me, O Lady, for I have departed from Thy ways:
But because I have hoped in Thee I shall not become weak.

My heart hath uttered a good word, my Lady:
it is sweetened with honey-flowing dew.
By Thy sanctity let my sins be purged:

By Thy magnanimity may my soul be loved
and joined to You through the bond of love.
By Thy Daughter, the chasm has been bridged:
by the bringing forth of Thy Beloved,
I am delivered from eternal death.
By Thy graciousness, I am restored:
and from the exile of misery
I am led back to the homeland of beatitude.
PSALM 59: O, Holy Dea, kear envelops us
O Holy Dea, kear envelops us as we have turned away from Thee.
Yet, Thou has had mercy on us by Thy Daughter.
Have mercy on us, O, saving Mother God:
who has brought forth salvation for all of creation.
For Thou infuses joy into the sad:
and joy and sweetness into the mourners.
Rejoice us by the sweet sounds of Thy Word:
and pour Thy balm of roses forth into our hearts.
Thunder, the heavens, from above, and give praise to Her:
glorify Her, the Earth, with all the dwellers therein.

Our Lady Reigns, let the people rejoice:
She sits on the High Throne of Heaven.
Great in Ekklesia is Thy glory, O Lady:

and Your grace is above gold and precious stones.
Beatitude and justice are given by You, O, Holy Dea.
Those who turn away from their sins to Thee
shall obtain the remedy of loving kindness

Let the spreading of Your wings defend us from it who devours.

PSALM 128: My enemies have often troubled me
My enemies have often troubled me from my youth up:
deliver me, O Lady, and vindicate my cause from them.
Give them not power over my soul:
keep my interior and my exterior.
Grant us forgiveness for our transgressions:
let it be given to us by Thy grace.
May we offer the Sacrifice worthily
and may we offer praise worthily:
that we may come to union with Thee by a blessed end.
Show us then with a gracious and serene countenance
the Rosy Heart-flame of Thy Love.
Psalm 140 I have cried
O Lady, I have cried to You, hear me:
incline unto my prayer and to my supplication.
Let my supplication be directed as incense before Thy face:
Both in the time of the evening sacrifice and in the morning.
Let not my heart turn aside into spiteful words:
And let not the thought of wickedness upset my mind.
Make me submissive to the good pleasure of Thy heart:
and let me be conformed to Your actions.
With the sword of understanding pierce my heart:
and with a dart of love inflame my mind.
