Preface:
Mother of All, Who brings forth the bounteous fruits and flowers,
Who anchors the eternal world in our own, Your grace enriches us. **

The candles on the altar (which should be object blessed *) and the veil/hat that we wear during formal prayer and ritual should be pink and green. (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 Floralia altar cloth is the elemental seasonal color of blue. This can be a doily,
hankey/handkerchief, tablecloth. (Which should be object blessed *). Flowers can be pink flowers and green foliage or seasonal flowers.

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

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

The suggested scripture reading is:

The Teachings of God the Daughter, 1 Teachings, Chapter 8, The Secret of the World, verses 21 – 22

21). Come to Me, My children, in the innocence of your hearts, and look upon the beauty of the world; for every thing reflects the glory of Déa. 22). See the world not through the eyes of the world, but through the eyes of the Eternal.
