Shimmering Darkness composed by ArchMadria Pamela Lanides.

O, Shimmering Darkness beyond the light,

O, Sublime Light beyond the dark,

You, Who are unknowable, but knows all,

You, Who are unmanifest, but manifests all,

Veiled Stillness,

Centre of All Life, All Mind, All Soul,

We bow before you in reverent awe.

Blessed are You.

Mother, to Whom all the thousands of the days are as one and yet, Who knowest more of the small events of my past day than I; receive my spirit at the ending of the day and protect her though the night.

Optional: Scripture reading, hymn, meditation or rosary.

[Composed by Sorella Rose, inspired by the Faith of the Seven in A Song of Ice and Fire]

May Lady Theia fill our hearts with joy,

May Lady Candre’ keep us pure in spirit,

May Lady Grace enfold us in her love,

May Lady Vikhe’ strengthen our courage,

May Lady Thema balance the scales of justice,

May Lady Rhea guide us safely through the dark.

May the Seven Rays of Dea shine down upon our souls, in this world and all the worlds to come.

By the Mother, the Daughter, and the Great Mysteria,

Blessed is She.    Sorella Roselyn
