The Rite of Veneration – FAQ 2, 3 and 4

If you have read FAQ 1

2. What do the RoV bread and wine symbolise?

The fresh white bread represents the Soul, not the Body.

The white wine or white grape juice (unfermented wine) represents the Spirit. (No red wine as that symbolises blood).

During the Rite of Veneration, they are blessed by Déa.

Usually, if serving a solitary ritual, do not fill the Chalice with wine. Before the RoV, pour in enough to take three good sips.

If there is a large gathering, a back up chalice/cup of wine may be kept on hand. If it is needed, the celebrant blesses the wine before serving it.

3. Where does this ritual take place?

Within the hestia, which is a devotee’s home that has been blessed and consecrated to Déa.

4. When does this ritual take place?
For devotees and clergy, the RoV is served on the Full Moon (For the Celestial Mother).
It is optional on
Dark Moon (For the Great Mother)
4 days after the Dark Moon: Crescent Moon (For the Holy Daughter)

One of the Tri-Unity Days weekly:
Foradi [pronounced four-ah-dee] or Fora (Suncross) Day / Saturday (For the Great Mother).
Sunnadi [pronounced sue-nah-dee] / Sun Day (For the Celestial Mother).
Lunadi [pronounced lue-nah-dee] or Moon Day / Monday (For the Holy Daughter).
is optional for devotees and the clergy should strive to serve a Liturgy.

Feast Days for devotees and the clergy should strive to serve a Liturgy.

Our Mother God Supreme is compassionate and understands that due to modern life: family, study/work that it is not always possible to serve a RoV or a Liturgy. It should never be a cause for guilt feelings. It’s very important that we avoid that. It is very easy to fall into becoming overly-scrupulous. That can be a psychologically debilitating burden.

The Rite of Veneration – FAQ 1. What is the RoV really all about?

For our new devotees, I have found these Frequently Asked Questions about the Rite of Veneration (RoV) in our archives.

1. What is the RoV really all about?

Here, we give only an outline of the essential truths.

Let us remember that in our Scriptures, the Holy Daughter teaches us how to offer Sacrifice to the Celestial Mother, 4) And She showed them how to offer Sacrifice to the Mother of All things. (Mythos of the Divine Maid (Janah), Chapter VII verse 4). And a good portion of our communion rite may be found at the end of this chapter starting with the verse 16.

The Rite of Veneration, or RoV, which came to us from the Madrians, is not so much an offering of gifts to Our Lady, rather it is based upon the One Eternal Sacrifice of the Holy Daughter, whether you view that Sacrifice as Her Death, as in Filianism and Madrianism, or as Her Shattering, as in Janite thealogy. (Both are basically different ways of expressing the same fundamental thealogy). It is a mini-version of the Great Liturgy, which Janites inherited through an hand-typed copy.

The Janite edition of the RoV is a slightly expanded version of the original Madrian with Janite influences added, such as the names of the Janati and certain prayers.

The Rite of Veneration, is channeled from the Earth (the plain bread and white wine/white grape juice). The Great Liturgy, is channeled from Heaven (the Transfused Bread and white Wine/Juice together constitute a sacrament).

And as Our Lady says to us in the Great Liturgy: “Even as you have offered to Me bread in sacrifice, so I give to you the Bread of my Soul; and as you have poured out libations of wine to Me, so I pour out the Eternal Libation of My Eternal Spirit.”

This is why every Janite priestess must serve the RoV and not the Great Liturgy on the Full Moons.

We are happy to announce that ArchMatrona Georgia E. B. Cobb, religious title: ArchMatrona Georgia Rosenhearth Bonnie-Fire, of the Lady of Light Chantry, has opened a new blog. ArchMatrona is well known within the Deanic community and holds the position of senior clergy.

The Rt. Reverend has been the hostess of the Elegant Lady Feminine Seminary (ELFS) discussion group for many years and has been the instructress to many in the Faith.

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/the_elfs/info.

The LLC blog is named after Dea Matrona, Our Great Mother God. We look forward to enjoying her future articles from the LLC perspective of the Deanic religion. The link from her blog may be permanently found under our links section of the menu to the right. https://deamatronablog.wordpress.com/.

Here is an excerpt from her About Page:

Welcome to The Lady of Light Chantry. The description “The Lady of Light” is one of the many titles of Our Divine Mother. The word “Chantry” comes from the French root “chanter” and means “to sing”. This is a reference to the idea that the Cosmos came into being through “singing”, as expressed in the Irish phrase “Oran-Mor” or “Song-Great” (an eternal song, without beginning or end, which continues in every expression of musical harmony today). I am your weblog hostess (and The LLC Founder): ArchMatrona Georgia Rosenhearth Bonnie-Fire. My title “arch-matrona” means that I am a “high priestess” in the Deanic Faith. The Deanic Faith is a “feminine monotheistic” religion which has its ancient roots in the idea of “the primordial divine motherhood” and its modern roots in a worldwide movement which promotes the rekindling of devotion to “the divine mother”. The LLC’s particular expression of devotion to Dea Matrona (Divine Mother) is European (Western) in Orientation. Nevertheless, we acknowledge all Worldwide forms of Divine Mother as equally valid. The Greater Deanic Faith is a Community of Devotees of Dea Matrona, which is open to all people. The Lady of Light Chantry is a Feminine Mystical Order, within the Greater Deanic Faith Community which is open to ladies only. ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb.
