Full Moon Prayer

I just found this and wanted to share: (A. M. Pamela)

Full Moon Dream

When all living things I contemplate,
Your sun and stars, Your galaxies,
like a flickering candle flame
my soul is overcome,
and just as the moon can only shine
by reflection of its sun, so is my being,
only to wane into the unseen,
until it stands
before + thee
again.

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.

SOLITARY RITE OF VENERATION

We have had a request for a Solitary Rite of Veneration, which may be found here. It is not necessary to serve the RoV as a group, it is fine to serve it as a solitary.  I am sending out an huge thank you to the person who sent in this important request. THANK YOU!

FIRST ISSUE OF THE AGORA GAZETTE!

The first issue of the Agora Gazette is out! Thanks to ArchSorella Minna for an outstanding job! I’m going to have to try that apple dumpling recipe!

Subscriptions may be obtained HERE

And if you would like to contact the Gazette: theagoragazette@gmail.com

I do apologize for an error that I made in the Seasonal Article that is found in this first issue: The First Mystery should have been Terra: The Ground and Matrix of All Being.

While some Deanic denominations view the Great Mother as the Ground of All Being, we follow the Madrian Catechism, question 11, which states: 11: Who is the Celestial Mother? +The Mother is the Creator of the World and the Ground of All Being. 

THE HOLY DAUGHTER, JANNA.

The Name that Janites use for the Holy Daughter, Jana, (Yah-nah) was handed down to us by a member of the Secret Order of Madrians. In order to avoid confusion between the Name of the Holy Daughter and the individual Janati known as a Jana (Divine Gate), we will henceforth be using the spelling of Janna for the Holy Daughter. Our pages have been updated to reflect this change.

Thank you and May Dea bless you,

Blessed is She.

The Agora Gazette/Calendar and Book Club updates

2 Abalon/Sept. 6
Columbadi/Fri. (Dove day).

Day of Sai Sushuri Grace, Fountain of Compassion, Love and Mercy.

Dear Devotees and Friends,

Members of the Hypatia Book Club are now reading the first chapter of Women Who Run With the Wolves. Discussion questions will be posted. For those who are interested in joining the women’s book club, the link may be found to the upper right in our menu. Thank you!

The online calendar for each month may now be found as a sub-page beneath our Janite Deanic Calendar (see menu, upper right). The secular dates will be added for easier use.

And finally, also listed at the upper right of our menu, devotees and friends are invited to subscribe to the new Agora Gazette newsletter of Clan Jana. (Clan Jana consists of the hestias of Janite devotees. An hestia, in Janite Tradition, are those homes which have been blessed and consecrated to Dea.)

Again, we wish to thank ArchSorella Minna for an outstanding job. She has been working tirelessly to launch the book club, the new online calendar and the newsletter.  Her efforts are much appreciated.

May the blessings of Dea be with you!

Blessed is She.
