(ringing bells for major announcement).
14 Moura/March 5
It is with great joy that I make two announcements:
First, our own Sorella Sophia Ruth has chosen to become ordained as a Janite deaconess during the holy month of Columbina! Let us keep her in our prayers as she prepares to be marked forever in the service of the Holy One, Madria Dea. As a deaconess, her title will be Madrina.
Please note: Each title of our clergy honors a Member of the Divine Feminine Trinity:
A madrina (which means godmother/guardian mother) is a deaconess who represents the Holy Daughter, She Who is the Queen of Heaven, Dea Filia.
A madria, (madria means mother), is a priestess who represents the Celestial Mother, She Who is the High Queen of Heaven, Dea Madria.
An ArchMadria is an high priestess/bishop who represents the Great Mother, She Who is the Empress of Heaven, Dea Matrona.
Sorella Sophia Ruth will serve as a deaconess for a year and a day, after which, she may be ordained as a priestess, if that is her desire according to her Soul Path.
O, Madria Candra, Matroness of the priestesshood, be with her, guide her and strengthen her in the service of Our Lady, blessed is She.
It is also with tremendous joy and gratitude that we welcome back into Her service, Madrina Dini Pantheacraft. Madrina Dini has taken time away to complete her studies in the Shakti path, in addition to other spiritual studies, and will have much to teach us, I’m sure. The Shakti Tradition is one of the four main denominations, or schools, of Hinduism. Shaktism is devoted to the Divine Feminine Trinity as being Supreme without denying the Divine Masculine. The Deanic Faith might be considered the Shaktism of the West, once it is fully developed over time. Madrina Dini plans to develop a Pantheacraft Tradition of Deanism.
Welcome back, Madrina! Many blessings of Dea be upon you!
