For our new devotees, I have found these Frequently Asked Questions about the Rite of Veneration (RoV) in our archives.
1. What is the RoV really all about?
Here, we give only an outline of the essential truths.
Let us remember that in our Scriptures, the Holy Daughter teaches us how to offer Sacrifice to the Celestial Mother, 4) And She showed them how to offer Sacrifice to the Mother of All things. (Mythos of the Divine Maid (Janah), Chapter VII verse 4). And a good portion of our communion rite may be found at the end of this chapter starting with the verse 16.
The Rite of Veneration, or RoV, which came to us from the Madrians, is not so much an offering of gifts to Our Lady, rather it is based upon the One Eternal Sacrifice of the Holy Daughter, whether you view that Sacrifice as Her Death, as in Filianism and Madrianism, or as Her Shattering, as in Janite thealogy. (Both are basically different ways of expressing the same fundamental thealogy). It is a mini-version of the Great Liturgy, which Janites inherited through an hand-typed copy.
The Janite edition of the RoV is a slightly expanded version of the original Madrian with Janite influences added, such as the names of the Janati and certain prayers.
The Rite of Veneration, is channeled from the Earth (the plain bread and white wine/white grape juice). The Great Liturgy, is channeled from Heaven (the Transfused Bread and white Wine/Juice together constitute a sacrament).
And as Our Lady says to us in the Great Liturgy: “Even as you have offered to Me bread in sacrifice, so I give to you the Bread of my Soul; and as you have poured out libations of wine to Me, so I pour out the Eternal Libation of My Eternal Spirit.”
This is why every Janite priestess must serve the RoV and not the Great Liturgy on the Full Moons.
