Prayer Requests and the Holy Month of Ourania

Friends and devotees,

Welcome to a new month! I do apologize that this post was late- our clergy all became severely ill or indisposed at the same time, and what poor luck that it was at the start of Ourania!

3987198345_6971c6a837_b.jpg

Ourania- October 3rd-30th

•1 Ourania/Oct. 3: Feast of Divine Order to honor Sai Thema- Rite of Veneration offered

Full Moon- Cosmic Moon: 10th Ourania/October 13th

Per tradition, the Rite of Veneration should be offered on the full moon, the Festival, and on Foradi, Sunadi, and/or Lunadi (Saturday, Sunday, and/or Monday) of each week by clergy in-training, and optionally by any devotees who wish to deepen their faith and dedication. 

We are drawing ever closer to the end of fall, and the end of our Celestial Mother’s holy half of the year. Our holy Mother, whom Janites pray to with love as Mari (Mother), is around us in all ways. It is through Her beautiful creation that we have the richly colored gourds and burrowing earth worms. Her hand taught the first Bear to gorge herself in preparation for winter, and the first Maple to pull up her sap and cast away her leaves.

Though Her warmth diminishes a bit every day, She is no further from us than the space of one atom to the next. And thank the Daughter, holy Janna, for Her task in bridging that impossible gap, guiding us safely to our Mother’s arms.

As Ourania honors the cosmic and starlit nature if our existence, what better month to explore our night skies? Star watching parties, a trip to an air and space museum, or a craft related to stars and our night sky would all be appropriate…and what better place to plug our newsletter?

The Agoran Gazette, the official Janite newsletter which releases bi-monthly, contains both devotional writings, as well as ideas for celebrating the current month. This month’s edition will have instructions for making a lovely night-sky splatter painting (perfect for all ages), as well as many other useful and fun topics!

The newsletter will be out A.S.A.P., and the prayer list will be posted tomorrow, the day of Lady Sushuri-Grace, protectress of healing.

If you or a loved one would like to request prayers from the Janite Ekklesia, please write ArchSorella Minna.(minnalousheandmockingbirds@gmail.com)

Thank you, and may our holy Mother bless you.

Let us bless the Holy One,

Blessed is She.

Let us thank the Seven Janati of Power,

Thanks be to the Seven Janati.

Assumpta, and the Abundance Moon! 8th Sunna

Joyous Assumpta, and a happy Abundance Moon! The Daughter has rejoined Our Mother in Her heavenly home, and Her lantern shines brightly in the dark of night.

f9404dcf075af19d6d2ea3556f2fbe24.jpg

Devotees should offer the Rite of Veneration today, both in celebration of Assumpta, and in honor of the beautiful full moon! Please note that the RoV can be served three days before to three days after the full moon.

Please see below for various needful things relative to the Rite of Veneration.


 How to Make Holy Water

Items needed:

Fresh Water
(To make holy water, it’s best to use a natural, flowing water, if readily available.
Sources for such water are rivers, lakes, brooks, melted snow and underground springs. I keep extra on hand in a large mason jar. Bottled spring water may also be used for those who live in a city.)

•Sea Salt.

•Bowl or jar for holy water. 

How to Perform the Blessing:

1. Pour some salt in your left hand.

2. Use the Trinity blessing gesture of the right hand.

(With your right hand, fold the pinky and ring fingers down while crossing the thumb over them. Your fore and middle fingers remain upright (this is the Blessing Hand).

3. Trace the Fora over the salt
https://deanic.com/prayers-and-rites/tracing-the-fora/
and say:

“May this salt be cleansed and blessed,
in the Name of the Mother, (trace Fora a second time),
and of the Daughter, (trace Fora a third time)
and of the Great Mother.”

“Iot ‘E Voh.”

(The Sacred Name of Power, IHV by saying the E with the out breath, it is breathed rather than pronounced. It may also be pronounced Yot ‘E Voh.) [1]

4. Then, with your right hand, take three pinches of salt out of your left hand and pour them into the bowl of water. Pour any remaining salt along the inside of your door threshold as a blessing and protection of the home.

5. With object blessed wand or right forefinger, stir the water three times sunwise – clockwise.

6. Form the Blessing Hand and trace the Fora over the water while saying:

“May this water be blessed in the Name of the Mother, (trace Fora a second time), and of the Daughter, (trace Fora a third time), and of the Great Mother.”


The Blessing Rite

(For the blessing and consecration of candles and objects).

You will need:

•Holy Water. 

•Holy Oil: https://deanic.com/rituals/making-holy-oil/

•Good incense, whether stick, cone or resin.

(Make sure candles are cleaned with olive, almond or jojoba oil.)

(If using a votive candle in a glass container, use window cleaner for the glass.)

(Make sure statues or other objects to be blessed are cleaned, as well.)

1. Begin by tracing the Fora over yourself.
https://deanic.com/prayers-and-rites/tracing-the-fora/

Prayer (Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One)

“Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One.

She Who is the Celestial Mother,

She Who is the Holy Daughter,

She Who is the Great Mother,

Blessed is She.”

(Alternate:)

“Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One,

She Who is Mari,

She Who is Jana,

She Who is Mysteria,

Blessed is She.”

2. Blessing of the item:

Take the Blessing Wand and dip in the holy water. Shake the blessing wand three times over the object which will sprinkle (asperge) the object with holy water. (Fingertips may be used, as well. Dip first two fingers in holy water, then shake/sprinkle the holy water onto the object.)

Then, trace the Fora over the object while saying: “May this (name object) be blessed, in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.”

3. To Consecrate the Item:

(Please note, if you are allergic to incense, this step may be skipped.)

Take the incense and use it to trace the Fora over the item and then circle the incense three times clockwise beneath the item, enfolding the object in the smoke while saying: “May this (name object) be consecrated, in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.”

4. To Anoint the Item:

Finally, dip the forefinger in holy oil and trace the Fora on the object while saying: “May this (name object) be consecrated, in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.”

“Iot  ̓ E Voh”
(The Sacred Name of Power, IHV by saying the E with the out breath, it is breathed rather than pronounced. It may also be pronounced Yot ‘E Voh.)

End by tracing the Fora over yourself.
