Construction and price:

Colours & Symbol:
The Great Mother: 5 petals of a darker purple dianthus
The Celestial Mother: 5 petals of lighter pink apple blossom
The World Soul Daughter: 5 pentacle star seed of the
Apple of Wisdom, green with leaf

inspired by ArchMadria Pamela’s post

All LIFE rests in potentiality, within Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, Dea Matrona.
She Who is the ‘Bright Shimmering Darkness’ and the ‘Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness’ The Ground of all being. Dea is the first, and highest and only necessary “thing” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists.
Dea Matrona emanated / “breathed out” the Matrix & Creatrix, Dea Matrea, Celestial Mother Mari.

~~~

The seed, containing the blueprint and essence of the life of the Apple Tree, is symbolic of the Matrix & Creatrix, Dea Matrea, Celestial Mother Mari, Who, Herself, contains the Supernal Blueprint and ESSENCE of the Tree of Life.
She gathers from Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, the seeds containing the Essence of Life and She births [emanates] them into material manifestation. Therefore, the Holy Mother Mari is, for us: Dea, Apple of Wisdom.

~~~

The outer apple represents the material manifestation of Creation. The inner spiritual seeds containing the Essence of Life, taken together with the outer apple of material manifestation represent the two Threads of the Spiritual and the Material being woven together to create All Being, FORM, which is exactly what Divine Soul Di Jana, Apple of Wisdom, signifies.

Jade is known as the “heart” stone as it enhances all aspects of love, is also known as the stone that brings abundance and is also known as stone for bringing emotional balance and stability. Jade is also known to give self reliance and confidence. is known also for its protective qualities especially with children with illnesses. Jade comes in many shades of green. Jade is more known in ancient times for its toughness. Jade may also come in shades of grey, white, black, yellow or orange or even violet tones.

Type C Jade: This refers to jade that has been color enhanced (to be blunt, dyed). Jade is a porous stone so it is easy and inexpensive to dye. A variety of methods can be used – from sophisticated polymers to as simple as boiling the jade in dyed water. Most bright green jade and purple jade is the result of dye, but clever sneaky jade dealers are also dying the color so that it is subtle and mottled – just slightly better than it was – so that it looks more natural.

Jade Imitations
These are materials that look like jade (sometimes extremely convincingly!) but are not at all jade – not even remotely related to it.
Dyed polycrystalline quartz (aka dyed chalcedony): This is very convincing because it has the same granular-looking translucence as jade (even with a microscope!). You can tell the
difference sometimes because the quartz will take on a higher polish than the jade (vitreous luster vs. waxy luster)

I also wrote this poem for today to celebrate the bounty of Our Mother’s grace!

Raindrops And Sun Two by atLevel1Alt

Crepusculum

An arc of light through cloud
to cull my breath
and sheaf it for the harvest,

to call my spirit to supernal sun
beyond the sheets of rain–
a self-emptying,

like lightning into oak, like foam
into the wine-dark sea, like seeds
adrift on summer’s bygone wind.

My Mother’s scythe–
a staff exscribing circles–
a wind upon the grass,

like the flutter of my breath
against the water
where the sun has set.

Autumn Psalms suitable for the Feast of Divine Life / Harvest Hestia

Firstly the introduction

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.

My Notes

[ Psalms: a collection of religious verses, sung or recited ]
[ Madrian1 Lady Mati is Clan Jana Lady Sofia and Madrian1 Lady Sushuri is Clan Jana Lady Grace
Lady Sofia: Feast day on November 28th
Lady Grace:https://mydevotionstodea.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/rosedaytuesday-15-columbinaapril-4- 2016-the-feast-of-madria-grace/ ]
[ 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].”

The Autumn Psalms

PSALM 9 – I will praise Thee

I will praise Thee, O Lady, with my whole heart:
and I will declare among the nations Thy praise and glory.
For to Thee is due glory, and thanksgiving, and the voice of praise.
May sinners find grace with Thee, the source of grace and salvation.
May the oppressed achieve justice by Thee, the liberator from injustice
In freedom and justice they will dwell.
and daily Thy will feed them the bread of life.

~~~

PSALM 17 – I Will Call Upon Thy Name in the Nations

I will love thee, O Lady of heaven and earth:
and I will call upon Thy name in the nations.
Give praise to Her, you who are troubled in heart:
and She will strengthen you against your enemies.
Give to us, O Lady, the grace of Thy over-flowing fountain:
from the dropping dew of Thy sweetness refresh
the inmost souls of Thy children.
Honor Her, O all you who are devout of soul:
for She is your Mother and your God.
Be Thou our refreshment, O, glorious Lady,
for Thou art the admirable foundation of all life.

[replaced ye with you]

Feast of Divine Life / Harvest Hestia

Feast of Divine Life / Harvest Hestia

The Rite of Sacrifice / Offering

This is the first time that I have performed (and adapted) The Janite Deanic Rite of Sacrifice / Offering.

We celebrate the Holy Trinity.

The Great Mother as Ground of All Being.
As I understand Her:
Dea Matrona is ultimate reality. Dea is the first, and highest and only necessary “thing” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists, and thus, had Dea Matrona not emanated / “breathed out” Celestial Mother Mari, Dea Matrona would be the only “being” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists.

The Celestial Mother Mari is the Matrix. She gathers from Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, the seeds containing the Essence of Life and She births [emanates] them into material manifestation. Therefore, the Holy Mother Mari is, for us: Dea, Apple of Wisdom.

Di Jana is the Apple of Wisdom.
The outer apple represents the material manifestation of Creation. The inner spiritual seeds containing the Essence of Life, taken together with the outer apple of material manifestation represent the two Threads of the Spiritual and the Material being woven together to create All Being, which is exactly what World Soul Di Jana, Apple of Wisdom, signifies.

apple-cut-across-equator

This Holy Rite may be offered as a solitary ritual or with family and friends on the phases of the moon or a Festival/Feast Day. It may be used for home or outdoor worship. It is a shortened form of the Great Liturgy of Dea and includes a Rite of Offering rather than a Communion Rite.

~

Force is understood as the combined Divine Power, Strength, Will and Energies of Dea.

~

The Rite is served on the Dark Moon in honor of the Great Mother. It is served on the Crescent Moon in honor of the Holy Daughter. It is celebrated on the Full Moon in honor of the Celestial Mother.

~

The Sacred Name of Power, IHV by saying the He with the outbreath, it is breathed rather than pronounced. It may also be pronounced Yot ‘E Voh.

~

Bowing: Fold hands in prayer, resting tips of fingers on chin and bow.

Soteria is pronounced So’-te-reea

~
Needed items:
Table or altar placed in the East. The spiritual head of the household, performing the Rite, faces East unless otherwise indicated. [I have].
Altar candles [I have].
Incense [No].
Five Element candles placed either along the back of the altar or in their cardinal directions on the altar. [No].
Holy water [I prepared earlier].
Holy oil [No].
Chalice and plate with white wine or white grape juice (unfermented wine) and fresh bread/rolls. (If there are to be a large number of people, more than one chalice may be filled with wine. All chalices of white wine and white grape juice should be properly blessed during the Rite.) [I prepared earlier, white grape juice and a slice of bread, ritual chalace and plate, blessed].
Libation bowl. [No, an ordinary bowl blessed].
Fresh flowers, if available. [No].
An inspired reading, hymns, the scriptures, Sophian or Persephone related hymns, or seasonal or moon poetry to be chosen in advance. [I have].
Females should be veiled or wearing a scarf or hat, males may wear a religious cap if they feel called to do so; all should dress appropriately. [I have].

(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.

~

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/M: Let us confess together our belief in that which alone is true.

Creed:

All:
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 I was made a perfect creature,
and I believe that at the dawn of time my soul did turn from
the Perfection of existence,
that I may know of the other things, for many things I did not know;
And thus gathered I infirmity of my sovereign will;

~

I believe that through this fault I needs must suffer
the limitation of imperfect being, to learn and know the other things,
in the increase of my knowledge;
for I know within Her Divine Will, the darkness must be known
to truly know the Light
and the Dark beyond the light.

~

And I believe, that all Her Will might Be,
that the Daughter of Eternity
gave Herself to be cast through the realms into Moura. (1)

~

I believe that She rose triumphant
And reigns as Queen of Heaven.
I believe that guided by the Seven Living Streams
and through the Triumphant life of the Daughter,
I may return to Eternal Communion
with the Eternal One, Madria Dea,
In the Completion of the Wholeness of Her Will.

Blessed is She.

C/M: Great Dove of the Waters that has brought forth the world from the Matrix of Your Being.

C: Dove of the Sacrifice that are crushed beneath the heel of Moura (1) [replaced: death] that You may come as our Soteria [replaced Savior]

ALL: We thank You,

We bless You,

We adore You.

C/M: Gentle Mother, that has given forth Your Daughter with tears into the hands of darkness,

All: Accept the tears of our love and our regret. [replaced: contrition]

~

July 2012
The Filianic Scriptures, New Celestial Union
Version (Second Edition, Third Update)

Title 2. The Crystal Tablet [52 verses]
Chapter 1 only
1: 52 verses.

The Crystal Tablet 12-29

12. Life is the life of the spirit, the first principle; beyond being and unbeing. Life was before existence. Life is the cause of existence. 13. How shall the soul live in life? 14. Let her realize the truth of her self and the truth of the Absolute. Let her know that her life is beyond even her existence, that the absolute life, the life of Thea, is beyond all existence. 15. Let her not be held from herself or her Thea by anything that exists, for all the things that are have come from nothing and to nothing shall return. But the divine life, and her life within it, was ever and shall ever be, though time itself shall only last a space. 16. Let her not trust the ground her feet are set upon and doubt the ground upon which that ground stands. Rather let her doubt the sea, the sky, the fingers of her hand and the breath of her mouth; for all these things may be illusions, as in some sense they are. 17. But let her know life divine as the truth beyond truth and the faith beyond faith and doubt.
18. Light is pure force or delight. It is the joy of Thea, and Her breath and spirit. 19. Light is the outpouring of life into existence. All things that exist come from life; they are made and sustained by light.
20. Though an existing thing appears never so solid, yet its body is made of light. All material things are but consolidated force; and the vibration of force is the whole of their being.
21. Yet material things are far from the source of light. They have become subject to consolidation and restriction. 22. Pure light knows no bounds, but is perfect joy, and breathes its own perfection.
23. How shall the soul approach to light? 24. Let her make her every act a resplendent creation, and let every outpouring of her strength be a well-made gift for her Lady. Let her not fall into dullness, but be ever creating herself anew in the delight of her strength. 25. Let her not seek for reward, but only for her own perfection; thus the action itself shall become perfect.
Let her turn from the transient and find delight in the eternal. 26. For every earthly action is the shadow of some higher form; and the soul must choose whether in her act she shall approach that form, or sink from it into deeper shadows and the morass of illusion. 27. She who rejects the light of the Spirit in this world shall, beyond death, be plunged into darkness and the confusion of bodiless echoes. 28. But every act that is performed in dedication to the Mother is an expression of the soul’s true self, and loosens the chains of her bondage. 29. If the soul lives in light, nothing shall be impossible to her, for her will shall become one with the will of our Lady

The Sacrifice:

C:

Silver Star of the Waters, Who has fashioned all the cosmos into being. Beyond all knowing is the splendor of Your Light. Enfold my spirit, beneath your hallowed mantle, and may the pure stream of Your Grace, flow through me, into this world and in all the worlds to come.

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 devotion.

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 / Offering

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.

(C then pours a portion of the wine from the chalice into the libation bowl. She then traces the Fora again over the bread. She dips her two fore 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 Madrina (deaconess/server) is present, she serves them, afterwards drinking, herself. The celebrant drinks last.)

Contemplation:

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

C: May the blessing of the Mother be upon you 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/M:

Beloved Dea, [replaced 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

All:
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.

(1) Moura – may either translate as darkness or death. It indicates that, like Sophia, the Holy Daughter suffered a descent down through the realms. Some, in our Faith, believe the Daughter died, others do not. Devotees are free to believe according to their conscience.

The libation wine is poured out onto the Earth by the H who says, while pouring, Hail, Holy Mother, Hail, Holy Daughter, Hail, Great Mother.
Blessed is She.

Psalms suitable for Summer – Rose Heart

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

Firstly the introduction

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.

My Notes

[ Psalms: a collection of religious verses, sung or recited ]
[ Madrian1 Lady Mati is Clan Jana Lady Sofia and Madrian1 Lady Sushuri is Clan Jana Lady Grace
Lady Sofia: Feast day on November 28th

[ 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.

Rose Haloed Mother

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:

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.

The Summer – Rose Heart Psalms

PSALM 25 – Judge me

Judge me, O Lady, for I have departed from Thy ways:
But because I have hoped in Thee I shall not become weak.
Enkindle my heart with the fire of Thy love:
And with the girdle of righteousness bind my heart.
For Thy mercy and Thy justice are before my eyes:
And I am delighted with the voice of Thy praise.
O Lady, I have loved the beauty of Thy face:
And I have revered Thy holiness.
Oh praise Her name, for She is holy:
let Her wonders be declared forever.

PSALM 27: I will cry and Thou shalt hear me

To Thee, O Lady, will I cry, and Thou shalt hear me:
in the voice of Thy praise Thou will make me glad.
Have mercy on me in the day of my trouble:
and in the light of Thy truth deliver me.
Blessed be Thou, O Lady:
to the uttermost ends of the earth.
Thy sanctuary is my abode.
Render my conscience pure and undefiled
and make of my heart a place of propitiation
and a temple for the holy in-dwelling of Thy love.

Blessed are they whose hearts love Thee, O, Holy Dea:

Holy, chaste, and flowering are Thy Thoughts:
which blossomed into the flower of eternal greenness.
The beauty of Thy grace will never see corruption:
and the grace of Thy countenance will never fade.

for Thou has raised us to union with Thee.
O, Sacred Mother, Thou has sent us Thy Daughter as the way,
by which salvation from on high, has visited us.

PSALM 32: Rejoice, the just, in Our Lady

Rejoice, the just, in Our Lady:
and in uprightness of heart praise Her together.
Draw near unto Her with reverence and devotion:
and let your heart be delighted in Her salutation.
Give unto Her the Sacrifice of praise:
and be you nourished with the Spirit of Her Daughter.
For She sheds upon you the Seven Jeweled Rays of Her Virtues:
and She will enlighten you with the splendours of Her mercy.
Her fruit is most sweet:
it grows ever sweeter in the mouth and the heart of the wise.

PSALM 40 – Our Lady loves

Our Lady loves the oppressed and the poor:
May we remain faithful in Her praise.
O Lady of the angels, Queen of the world:
purify my heart with the fire of Thy love.
You are the Mother of the illumination of my heart:
You are the Nurse who refreshes my mind.
My mouth longs to praise Thee: my mind aspires to adore Thee.
My soul longs to pray to Thee
Because the whole of my being belongs to Thee, O my Queen.

PSALM 41: As the deer longs for the sparkling brook

As the deer longs for the sparkling brook,
so doth my soul pine for Thy love.
For Thou art the Mother of my life:
and the sublime sustainer of my existence.
Thy Daughter is the Savioress of my soul;
the beginning and the end of my salvation.
Hear me, O Lady, let my stains be cleansed:
enlighten me, O Lady, that my darkness may be illuminated.
Let my tepidity be enkindled by the Heart-Flame of Thy love:
let my torpor be expelled by Thy grace.

~~~

PSALM 44: My heart hath uttered a good word

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 integrity may incorruption be bestowed upon me.
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.

PSALM 82 – Who shall be like unto Thee

O my Lady, who shall be like unto Thee ?
In grace and glory You surpass all.
As the heavens are above the earth:
so are You high above all, and exceedingly exalted.
Wound my heart with Your love:
make me worthy of Your grace and Your gifts.
May my heart melt in Thy love:
and may the desire of Thee enkindle my soul.
Make me desire Your honor and Your glory:
that I may be received by You.

PSALM 98: Our Lady Reigns

Our Lady Reigns, let the people rejoice:
She sits on the High Throne of Heaven.
Great in Ekklesia is Thy glory, O Lady:
and in Cosmos, shines forth Thy magnificence.
Sing before Her, the harmonious choirs:
and adore Her throne, for it is holy.
In Her Flames, the Fire of Love
and round about her are those who worship Her.
Her Seven Laws are before our eyes:
and the rule of compassion is in Her heart.

PSALM 107 – My heart is ready

My heart is ready, O Lady, my heart is ready:
to sing praises to You and to chant.
Greater is Your love than all riches:
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
For Your fruit is grace and peace:
and those who please You shall be far from perdition.
Be to us a shade of protection in our temptations:
Let the spreading of Your wings defend us from it who devours.

unrepentant person passes after death.

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.

O, Fiery Rose of Heaven

Psalm 7: O, Fiery Rose of Heaven

O, Fiery Rose of Heaven,
The flaring corona of the North, fades beside you.
The blazing sunsets of the West, pale before you.
The cross of stars in the South, dims behind you.
The splendor of the moon in the East, vanishes below you.
O, Fiery Rose of Heaven, be with us.
