Interfaith Mary site

Dear Devotees,

A while back, I had published a post on Mary and Quan Yin entitled, when East Meets West. Near the end, I recommended a great article on the Interfaith Mary website. The author has kindly let me know that was a broken link and so I have corrected it.

I also wanted to make note of it, here: http://interfaithmary.net/articles/mary-buddha.

And the main website: http://interfaithmary.net/

Rose Moon and Christian Ekklesiastical Order

Dear Devotees,

Tonight is the night of the Full Rose Moon. Those who wish to do so may celebrate the Rite of Sacrifice using the Preface for the Celestial Mother. https://deanic.com/the-rite-of-sacrifice/

As many of our subscribers are either Gnostic Christian, Sophianic Christian, Goddess Christian or Sophianic in general, I would like to mention that I am preparing a new site for a Goddess Christian Order of Sophia which will largely mirror this site, but will be for members of the above listed groups.

It will take me a few weeks to a month to get it all set. I will make an announcement here when it is ready.  In the meantime, Madria Sophia will continue in her position of Administrator of this site.

Thank you and may Our Lady bless you,

ArchMadria Candra Sophia

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

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.

[Madria Olga Lotar, GEBC version. I have altered ‘the Goddess” to Déa. Madria Sophia].

A Long Journey

My Journey Home

2 Rosa/ Summer

I have been on a very, very long journey . It began when I was a young child when I fell in love with the Blessed Mother and Her rosary and Her Miraculous Medal and Her feast days and everything about Her. I lived each day with Her by my side . I was consumed with Her and believed in Her. I lived for Her.

But, then came a time, when I had to leave Her. And I have missed Her. I have missed Her so very much. All this time, I have been trying to find my way back to Her. Now, now I understand that I had to go on a journey. I had to leave my Mother and set out on my own, on a very long, long journey.

And now I understand that for each True Soul Path, there is a process. A Divine Process. And oftentimes, during that Process we can feel so very, very lost . But the truth is, if we keep following that yearning in our soul; if we keep walking the Path; if we allow the Process to unfold, we rise up on the spiral staircase . We return to that for which we are longing and yet the relationship and understanding are more highly evolved .

And each step of the way , if we but trust our heart, each agonizing step is a part of the Process . It matters not what people say, along the way, and it matters not if you feel lost, it matters not if you feel worthless, as long as you keep following your heart and the tuggings of your soul, you will get there . It is not easy . It is definitely not easy . But when you arrive, it is like a new life.

My own wanderings took me far and wide. And I look back upon that road and realize that each and every twist and turn in that Path was crucial
to my journey.
And I found…when I found the Pearl of Great Price, that Pearl for which I was searching,  I found, that I could take it back home.

Be True to your soul.
