IOT ‘E VOH

(all trace the Fora upon themselves)

In the Name of the Mother

And of the Daughter

And of  the Great Mother,

Dark beyond the light

And Light beyond the darkness;

We entreat you that your vigilance shall keep our service pure.

(C: turns to each quarter, tracing in the air, each time, the sign of the Fora  while saying)

O, Madria Grace, Guardian of East and Water, may there be peace, be with us.

O, Madria Vicka, Guardian of South and Fire, may there be peace, be with us.

O, Madria Thema, Guardian of West and Earth, may there be peace, be with us.

INVOCATION

C: Madria Dea,

Star of the Shimmering Depths, look upon us.

Light of the nocturnal heavens, Protector of the running deer

And of all free spirits, O, hear us.

We are come to celebrate Your resplendent purity and to solemnly devote ourselves to Your service. Mistress of the Silver-Helmed wave, come among us.

C/H Let us confess together our belief in that which alone is true.

CREED

THE JANITE DEANIC CREED

A (stand)

I believe that I am created from before the dawn of time

by the Eternal One, Madria Dea;

I believe that She is One and there are none beside Her,

and I believe that She is also Three.

~

I believe in the Mother, She Who is Pure Light;

the Creator of the Earth and of the Heavens,

and of all the infinite Cosmos.

~

And I believe in Her Holy Daughter, born of the Holy Mother;

She Who rules all the energies of Creation,

Whose Nature is Perfect Love.

~

And I believe that there is She, Who stands beyond these Two,

Whose Name has not been spoken on this Earth;

for She is the Beginning and the End,

the First Principle and the Final Cause,

the unoriginated Origin of Being;

the Great Mother of all that is and all that is not;

~

I believe in the Seven Janati, the Seven Great Powers of Dea. I believe that

they are the Living Streams of Virtue who flow from the Mother and

that together, these Living Streams form the River of Life.

I believe that through the Holy Daughter, we are assumed to Eternal Communion with the Eternal One, Madria Dea, in the Completion of the Wholeness of Her Will.

LECTION

C/H: Let us, who are true believers, receive into our hearts, the words of Our Lady.

(Scripture or Sacred Text reading)

Title 3, Chapter 3 The Mantle

https://mydevotionstodea.wordpress.com/2016/12/13/scripture-title-3-chapter-3-the-mantle/

PREPARATION FOR THE SACRIFICE  

C:

Silver Star of the Waters, Who has fashioned all the world into being, beyond all knowing is the Splendour of Your Light. Enfold my spirit, within your Mighty Mantle and may the Pure Stream of Your Grace flow within me, in this world and in all the worlds to come. Blessed is She.

Madria Dea, we pray that You will Bless the gifts we bring to You, for we bring them not only in our own names, but for all who love You; may they be nourished and grow strong in Your true

Beloved Kyria, we bring these gifts for Your blessing in the name of Holy Ekklesia, who has gathered all of Your children into one Body, knowing no bounds of either time or space.

For we know that Ekklesia transcends this world, even as this sacred altar transcends the earthly stuff of which its parts are made. For we know that as we stand before this altar within Ekklesia, we stand at once before Your Celestial Altar, which is both in Heaven and in every place where Your children come together in Your Name.

C: Holds the sacrifice (bread) in the smoke of incense with both hands.

C: We know that there is but one Sacrifice made by all Your children in every place, eternally. Bless this gift, that we may take part in that one Sacrifice.

(All kneel on one knee. C bows her head.)

IOT ‘E VOH

THE SACRIFICE

C: Places Sacrifice back on plate. (May either be safely burned as an offering or placed outside on the ground.)

C: Mother of all that is, accept the gift Your children bring to You.

(All rise. C; lifts the Chalice in her left hand and traces the Fora over it with her right)

C: Let us offer libation to Dea.

(She dips two fingertips into the wine and sprinkles a few drops onto the sacrifice. The action is repeated three times. She then traces the Fora, again.)

C: Madria Dea, as we drink of the one cup, may Your Divine Spirit be infused within our being.

(The Chalice is passed to all. All drink. If a handmaid (server) is present, she serves them, afterwards drinking, herself. The celebrant drinks last.)

CONTEMPLATION (The celebrant may give food for contemplation, speak about the Mysteries of the season, spiritual truths, etc.)

C/H: Let us kneel before this altar that is both upon Earth and in the Heaven.

(All kneel except C and close eyes).

C: Let us consider that the earthly things we see about us are but illusion and that could we see with clearer eyes, a more glorious vision would appear before us.

Let us feel the Spirit of Dea, as it grows within us and seek to catch a glimpse of that vision.

(C kneels. During Contemplation, certain meditations may be spoken, including the following):

C: Great Dove of the Waters,

Fiery Rose of Heaven,

Help us to aspire to the heart of the flame.

C: You are the Music of the Spheres,

You are the Meaning of all words,

You are the end of every road and also its beginning.

Help us to know you.

I said

The Verses of The Seven Streams
The Seven Jeweled Rays
for Lady Justina

I am Justina, the Blue Ray of Justice.

I am the Natural Law of the Cosmos.

The Four-Fold Earth is where I reign and it is Earth that I guard.

Come to me when you are in need of truth and fairness

and I will defend you with all my might.

Learn of me the Jade Stones of Order and Harmony

and your Path shall be made clear.

If you are in need of material sustenance,

you shall never go without.

Lean on me in times of trial and I shall heed your cry.

I am Justina.

DISMISSAL

(C: traces the Fora three times, once at each blessing)

C: May the blessing of the Mother be upon you (we add: and upon this world.)

May the blessing of the Daughter be upon you and upon this world.

May the blessing of the Great Mother be upon you and upon this world.

Dark beyond the Light and Light beyond the Darkness.

C/H:

Beloved Kyria, we pray that you will bless us on our parting from Your Temple and infuse us with Your delight, so far as we are able to contain it.

SILVER LIGHT OF THE FORESTS

A:
Silver Light of the darkling forests, send us forth in the protection of Your Spirit that no profane thing may enter into us.

Grant us to see all things with delight that are lovely and to glory and increase in force and energy.

Fill us with wonder in the sight of the seas and of the heavens and of every place wherein You are.

Commander of the roaring wave, help us to turn from all that is low or inglorious neither with anger nor with pain, but to know that in You we stand above all such things.

Guiding Light of the faithful soul, fill the deepest caverns of our spirit with the exhilaration of Your love. Send us forth upon the world as torchbearers of Your delight and grant us strength in You and in ourselves that we may value all things rightly, regardless of the consuming weight of the profane and the frailty of all that is beautiful.

C: (Makes the sign of the Fora and says)

In the Name of the Mother

And of the Daughter

And of the Great Mother.

Blessed is She.

Let us bless the Queen of Heaven.

Blessed is She.

Let us thank the Seven Janati of Power.

Thanks be to the Seven Janati.

Thus may it remain.

    • We believe that like Sophia/Shekinah, the Holy Daughter suffered a Descent through the Realms in order to become the World Soul or Soul of the World, the Soul of humanity. By taking on rarefied Form, She becomes Soul. In giving Herself to us in this Earthly state of density and isolation, She, as the World Soul, becomes shattered. Thus, She represents the ultimate archetype of selfless sacrifice.

    Just as the soul allows for the opposites of body and spirit to unite, so too does the Shekinah play this role for us.  Indeed, the Shekinah is the Soul of Man, what Kabbalists call the Neshamah, for She has given a portion of Herself in order for each human to come into being in this world.  In giving of Herself to humans, in this state of physical density and isolation, the World Soul becomes shattered. This shattering can be metaphorically grasped in considering what might happen to a glass alembic or flask when too much pressure is put upon in the alchemical works.  Thus, the Shekinah represents the ultimate archetype of selfless sacrifice.  All Her sacrifices have been for the benefit of creation so that humankind may experience this life in order to fulfill its destiny and purpose.
