And the children of the earth were filled with love for Her, and gathered about Her with tears of joy, touching Her robes and giving themselves to Her in their hearts. 4). And She gathered them together and taught them many things, saying: You have gained knowledge of the world, but I say, be not wise with the wisdom of the world, nor proud with the pride of the world, nor strait with the dignity of the world, neither lose your self in any of the ways and fashions of the world, but come to Me as little children in the pure simplicity of your hearts and the virgin innocence of your souls – for truly, all of you are children in the eyes of your Mother, and I shall receive all who come as Her children. Come you so to Me and all faults shall be forgiven. And She showed them how to offer Sacrifice to the Mother of All Things.

5). And She said: When the time is come for Me to go from you, still I shall be with You and shall never leave you, not for one fragment of an hour until we are together in completion. 6). But I shall unite you all who love Me in one great body; 7). the highest and the lowest, the living and the dead, those who falter at the door, and those who have climbed to the highest tower, all shall be one in My Soul which I have given to the world, and all shall be nourished by My Spirit.

8). And they understood Her not, but only wept that She must leave them. And She spoke no more of this, but taught them, and revealed many hidden things, such as might fill an hundred books.

She delivers the captive into Her care and takes the hand of the fallen.

May the whole world praise Thee, beloved Princess.
May Thy glory be told of in all the Earth.
Let them exalt Thy dominion and Thy valiant courage and glorify Thy holy Name.

Have mercy on Thy servant who gives Thee blessing
and take her hand in need and suffering.
In illness and distress give her the gift of life.
May she go forever in joy and delight
to magnify Thy Holy Name before all the peoples of the world.

Madria Dea, Mother of all beings, fill my heart completely.
Grant me, Your child,
