Janite Rite of the Filianic-Madrian Creed

The Janite edition of the Madrian/Filianic Creed which includes the belief in the Janae. For our understanding of the Death of the Daughter, please see the footnote from the the Filianic teaching:

The Janite Rite of the Filianic-Madrian Creed

I believe that I am created from before the dawn of time
By the Eternal One, Madria Dea.

I believe that Dea is One and that there are none beside Her. And I believe that She is also Three and Seven.

I believe in the Celestial Mother, She Who is Pure Light;
The Creatrix of the Earth and of the Heavens,
and of all the infinite cosmos.

And I believe in Her Holy Daughter, born of the Celestial Mother;
She Who rules all the energies of Creation,
Whose Nature is Perfect Love.

And I believe that there is She, Who stands beyond these Two,
Whose Name has not been spoken upon this Earth;
For She is the Beginning and the End,
The First Principle and the Final Cause,
The unoriginated Origin of being;
The Great Mother of all that is and all that is not; She, Who Is.

I believe in the Seven Janae, the Seven Great Powers of Dea. I believe that
they are the Living Streams of Virtue who flow from the Mother and
that together, these Living Streams form the River of Life.

I believe that I was made a perfect creature
and at the dawn of time my soul did turn
from the Perfection of existence
and thus gathered I infirmity of my sovereign will.
And through this fault do I suffer
the limitation of imperfect being
And, I believe that all Her Will might be,
 that the Daughter of Eternity
gave herself to be cast down into darkness and death.
I believe that She rose from death triumphant
And reigns as Queen of Heaven.

I believe that through Her death
the fault of my soul shall perish,
And I believe, through Her triumphant life,
My soul shall rise renewed in her perfection
that she may return to eternal communion
with the one eternal Dea.

footnote:

And when we speak of the death of the Daughter, we must understand that we are dealing with a highly complex subject. It is not possible for the Daughter to cease to exist (although in a certain symbolic sense the Filianists regard the Hiatus — the day between the years, after the Sacrifice of the Daughter and before Her resurrection at the new year — as a time when She is not); but then it is not possible for any soul to cease to exist. Death is the transition from one state to another, and for the Divinity to enter death is for Her to enter the world of transition — to be bound to samsara, the turning wheel of Werde — descending from the realm of Pure Being to that of becoming.

Thealogically it may be expressed in the form that since the Mother, who is Pure Being, is Life itself, separation from Her is death.  : http://www.mother-god.com/taking-on-of-fate.html
