Septena/Priestess of Holy Wisdom

2 Maia/April 19

Pomedi/Thurs

O, Madria Thema, Jana of Justice, Order and Harmony, be with us.

Dear Devotees,

Throughout this beautiful month of Maia …..(although here in Northern Massachusetts, we are still waiting for Spring. Snowing, yet, again)…….we will be posting various devotions, inspirational readings and crafts.

First, Madria Sophia had an excellent suggestion. In yesterday’s post, I mentioned the time honoured tradition of praying novenas….where certain prayers are said for nine days in a row for an express purpose such as for healing or employment.  Novenas may also be prayed for the purpose of praise, thanksgiving and devotion without a specific request.

Madria Sophia has suggested that a septena or a seven day novena might be more appropriate for Janites and, of course, this is a perfect idea.

Like novenas, septenas may be prayed in any time of need. Madria Sophia has done a lovely job of taking our Litany of the Celestial Mother https://deanic.com/holy-feminine-trinity/litany-of-the-celestial-mother/ and divided it up for a seven day novena or septena.

We might start a tradition whereby we begin the septena on 1 Maia or the first Sunnadi in Maia, but it may also be prayed at any time throughout the year.

It may be found, below.

I would also like to point out that Sorella Roselyn, on her blog has written an informative post for 1 Maia, followed by an hauntingly beautiful and inspirational writing about the Holy Daughter that is reminiscent of Thunder, Perfect Mind.

One popular craft in Maia is the May basket. There are many examples and ‘how tos’ to be found online including instructions for children’s May Basket. Here are some great ideas : https://www.skiptomylou.org/10-simple-may-day-baskets-to-celebrate-may-day/
