Best Wishes for the Future of the Janites

Dear Friends,

This is (the former) ArchMadria Candra Sophia aka Pamela Lanides.

As some of you know, I have returned to an alternative form of Christianity. My work here is finished and I am very happy to pass on the title of Prima Madria to A. M. Sophia.

She has my full blessing and my fullest confidence in continuing the Janite Tradition, the priestesshood and the sisterhood of the JOP.  She has been a saint in putting up with me. 🙂

I want to thank ArchMatrona Georgia, of the Lady of Light Chantry, who started me on this Path. It is her name that will forever head the official listing of the Janite lineage of  Priestesshood. It is from her, that this priestesshood descends.

Again, I wish to thank A. M. Sophia and also Race MoChridhe of Apron Strings for his friendship and for the fantastic work he did on the ECE, (http://apronstrings.racemochridhe.com/ece/). I have no doubt that he will put the Deanic/Filianic/Madrian movement on the map of religious history!

I wish to thank those who stuck with me through thick and thin: Barbara, Shoshana and Kathi+. I could not have done this without your unwavering support and your unconditional friendship through the years.

I wish to thank new friends, Sorella Roselyn and Sorella Minna. I wish to thank old friends, Madria Erin, Madria Dini, Father Kevin, Brandon, Noor, Glenn King and David Kay.

And I wish to remember my wise woman, Lieren Malka.

I also wish to thank the founders of the Madrian religion.

It’s been a wild ride over these last eight years, but look at what we have all accomplished, together. Every single one of us did this… all, together.

For myself, I have been called back home to my longtime friend who is my ‘other bishop’ and to a beautiful Tradition of Christianity that I didn’t even know existed in its modern form.

I will take many of the practices, prayers, teachings and traditions that I have learned through the greater Deanic community and from my mentor, ArchMatrona Georgia, along with me as my own journey, my own Soul Path, continues.

Most especially, I want to thank our dear readers, our faithful devotees and our wonderful subscribers. You are all absolutely awesome!!!! Thanks for being here! Thanks for your interest in our work. And, thank you for loving Dea and for coming to know Her.

For a final time, I wish you the Blessings of Our Lady:

May Our Lady bless you all, always and forever, unto the ages of ages, in the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and of the Great Mother,

Blessed is She.

Rev. Pamela Lanides

9 Rosa/June 21: Rosalia – Feast of Roses. The Mystery of Assumpta.

Sacred Season of Summer

Celestial Mother as Supernal Sun and Red Rose for Her “Fiery Rose of Heaven”.

The Sacred Season of Summer is dedicated to the Celestial Mother as Essence, and the blazing Supernal Sun of creation. The solar fire with in the world is blazing up to consume the separation of matter and raise us across the abyss of separation to be one within our hearts with the Heart of the Celestial Mother. During this season, a single rose stands before altar images to recall our minds to the single goal.

9 Rosa/June 21: Rosalia – Feast of Roses. The Mystery of Assumpta.

The Assumption icon 477

https://www.monasteryicons.com/product/the-assumption-of-the-virgin-mary-icon-477/icons-of-the-great-feasts

The Assumption of the Holy Daughter. Our Holy Daughter shows us the Way to reunification with Our Celestial Mother, Mari Sophia, who is the Assumption of our Souls. It is also the Feast of Roses. (Please note that in the Order of Kore Di Jana, Rosa Mundi is most rightly the Holy Daughter Who, as the Holy World Soul, is truly the Rose of the World [1]. Janites regard the Celestial Mother as Rosa Caeli, Rose of Heaven. The Celestial Mother, Mari Sophia, is the Rose of Joy and the Fiery Rose of Heaven. [2])

[1] Holy Daughter: Rose, Rosa Simpla / simple wild rose or briar-rose or Rosa Canina / dog rose. This rose has also been seen as a type of the human soul, aspiring for fulfillment in the multi-foliate Rose of the Divine, and exemplifying the transcendent virtues of simplicity and humility. The wild rose has also been associated with the similarly five-petaled apple-blossom, and, like the apple, has been held as a symbol of immortality.

[2] Celestial Mother: Roses, “the White Rose, the rose of pure love which is “unfolding and everlasting, which changes not nor ever shall change.” Red roses for Her “Fiery* Rose of Heaven”. *Fiery here means the Fire of Her Love for us. Her constant, unconditional loving Flame.

Preface:
Hail, Rosa Coeli: Rose of Heaven of the Noon-tide, Light & Essence of Creation, be with us.
Hail, Rosa Simpla: Humble, Simple, Pure, Love & Soul of the World, be with us.

“All the complexities of the world are but the turnings of a labyrinth, and at the centre is the fiery rose-heart of our Mother, burning with perfect love.”*

*from Madrian Traditions

Rosalia Feast Altar:

The candles on the altar (which should be object blessed *) and the veil/hat that we wear during formal prayer and ritual should be red. (Keep in mind, the liturgical colors are the colors of the robes of the Janae. These are colors that are symbolic of Who They Are in Their Spiritual Essence.) The Rosalia altar cloth is the elemental seasonal color of red (fire). This can be a doily, hankey/handkerchief, tablecloth. (Which should be object blessed *). Flowers can be white, red or pink roses and red flowers. Madrian tradition: a single rose stands before altar images to recall our minds to the single goal.

* https://deanic.com/rituals/the-blessing-rite/

For those who wear the Sacred Symbol pendant of the Season, it is, the Rose.

Madrinas and Priestesses will accent their white dresses/robes with accessories (shawl or scarf) in the liturgical color of red.

The suggested scripture reading is:
5. The Crystal Tablet, verses 49 – 50

49 Let the soul know, before all, that the greatest love is the Love of Déa, and from this Love all other loves flow.

50 Let her open herself to her Lady, that she may come as perfect love for Her. Let her learn of Déa, that Eternal Love which is Déa.

The Way of Love

Lunadi/27 Flora

I had originally posted this a few years ago, with the permission of the original author, a former Madrian. I think it’s a good reminder of what we are all about. The following is copyright protected and in the care of the Janite Ekklesia. Please note that Jana was considered to be a form of the name, Inanna. But, in this case, we are not speaking about a Trinity. Mari was the Transcendent, Celestial Mother, Jana (who was not  considered to be a sacrificial Daughter), was the Celestial Mother in Her Immanent Form, Her Gentle Light Form. The Way of Love is at the end.

Every individual soul is precisely that, and, indeed, eternally unique…each expressive of a complete part or portion of She. Every soul has their own path to tread in their return to She; yet, all share a common Way in their return, for all are part of the One Life, Life, Herself; She Who is pure Life and pure Light or energy, and pure Love or harmony;and all this world’s requirements are given by Her and all are formed through Her, alone–and the only guiding principle whatsoever is our Mother..for Her true devotees, surely, is this real truth, for all of us know it and have understanding even in this world.

It is important to remember this point, which is that when one searches for one’s path–one searches for one’s life and for one’s life is one’s path and one’s path is one’s life. One, everyone, lives one’s life in this world together with every other creature and thing in this world.

Each soul is karma-bound. That karma or ‘moura’ dissolves only by the commensurate effort of the soul that has gathered it and that effort is an effect that demands much of courage and perseverance and resilience. For the soul that has reawakened, that soul knows that Love is All, therefore, that prime essence of their being is Love and that the whole of their being must become Love, not only live in love, but  become wholly (holy) love..for Love is the source of all love, and the soul that becomes pure love becomes one with Love, Herself and thus is freed from all hardship, every suffering and lives wholly without limitation of any kind, even eternally. Once every creature has re-attained this State, hence shall this world and every world (every level of existence) be wholly perfect. Such requires a vast period of time and this, we have, together with all else necessary. Blessed is She.

The process for the soul is threefold, thus. The individual development and the collective development and the interaction between the two makes three in the process to Perfection. At no moment and in no place does this cease to be true, so there is no escape from this either in the heavens or upon the earth for any creature. One’s path, arightly, is the way one wilfully chooses to ‘be’ in one’s right-desire to attain Perfection. This is true in one’s place of work, home and within all of society at every moment; and this path is, simplyk, one’s life-present existence-one’s wholehearted belief and desire for (that) one’s life and for the life or lives of all other lives, irrespective of adversities and hurst and conflicts.

Way of Love

“When we turned from Mari, at time’s dawn, and began our journey away from Her to learn and know of the things our minds imagined to lie outside of Perfection, then did we move ourselves away from Mari-and that our sovereign will might be, Mari ordered and established this world and the manifest universe separate from Herself, from the Heaven and we are distant from Mari in imperfection, yet, She turns not away from Her children, for the Lady of Heaven, Jana, comes to us as our Sovereign and Ruler of all things. And for the soul who turns again to the Mother, Jana shall guide that soul again to Heaven, to Perfect Union.

 

The Way of the Mother teaches nothing, but only serves to remind you of what you have always known and perhaps are forgetting. Two little things that are essential to our known or regathering of Truth and these are as follows:

 

Unless a little child can understand it, it is not the Truth.

Unless a thing contains love, it is not of Love; be it a thought or word or act; and when the truth is taught, unless it is filled with Love, it is not of Love and nor can it be the Truth.

The Truth Herself is Love, she Who is Mother of All. Blessed is She.

 

The guiding principles are always honesty, trust and love, every thing being under Her gaze, She Who is the Mother of All.

 

We follow and seek to live the Way of Love, which we consider to be both the simplest way of all and yet the richest and most profound.

 

The prime consideration is that love governs your all, love for She, love of yourself, love for every soul and creature and thing, for all are Her’s–the Way of Love.

 

The Way of Love is our guiding Rule, by

She, gently, in the dignity, gracefulness and strength of love, increasingly strive that Love be the source and the quality of your every thought, word and act, that you be filled with love and send forth only intentions formed by love, that love be the air you breathe and ever the whole of you, for this is the way you shall return to Love, Herself, even to the perfect Union with She, Who is the Mother of All, the Holy One and the Way of Love is the perfect knowledge that leads to Perfect Love, Blessed is She.
