Feast of the Queen of Heaven

My apologies, I accidentally published this as a page rather than a post.

28 Maia/May 15

Day of Our Lady Sophiana, which means Wisdom’s Grace. She is the Messenger of Wisdom, Revelation and Knowledge. (Eph. 1:17).

Today’s Gift of the Holy Mother Spirit: Wisdom.

Please see previous post on The Queen of Heaven. 

Today we celebrate the Crowning of the Holy Daughter, Janah Sophia. {(Janah, pronounced Yah-nah) is a sacred name and helps to distinguish Her from the so-called Fallen Sophia of the Gnostic Christians, which was a later demotion of the original Gnostic texts. (1). We were pleased to discover that some modern Essenes use the same title for Her..Jahnah.} As Her Twin Consort, the Divine Son, is Our King, so is She, Our Heavenly Queen.

Litanies, Akathists and hymns may be offered. (See below article). For those who wish to offer the Rite of Sacrifice, I am still updating it with newly discovered original material, but the Janite version may be found here: https://deanic.com/the-rite-of-sacrifice/. It would need to be adapted for Reginites.

Crowns may be made out of roses or other flowers. Female devotees may wear a crown of flowers, as well. The Sophian crown may be placed upon the statue, hung on an icon or placed on the home altar/shrine before Her image. Silk flowers may be used. If you have a garden statue, that may be crowned, as well.  Here are some instructions: http://www.catholicinspired.com/2011/05/making-crown-for-mary-during-month-of.htmlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hgnyjqDZUQ. 

During the crowning, we sing the traditional song, Queen of the May or Bring Flowers of the Rarest. Simply substitute Sophia’s Name for Mary’s. As Sophia, Herself, explained in an apparition to a seer, those who have prayed to Mary have been praying to Her.

Many, including Russian Sophianologists, believe that Mary is an incarnation of Higher/Mother Sophia. Reginites do not teach that Mary is an incarnation of Sophia, rather, we believe that Higher/Mother Sophia, in Her Holy Spirit Form, entered into Mary and so Mary became Her avatar as did Eve and Norea.  In this way, it is perfectly permissible to use Marian hymns and devotions and apply them to Sophia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCho70C-Pl0.

Akathist: This is the Akathist that I wrote for the Janites. It needs to be adapted for Reginites, which will be done in the near future: https://deanic.com/prayers-and-rites/the-akathist-prayer-to-the-dove-of-spring/

The Purity of the Dove

THE PURITY OF THE DOVE by Rev. Pamela Lanides, copyright protected.

1) Give Your Heart unto me and I shall fashion of it the purity of a dove.

2) For mine is the Way of compassion that is born out of Love.

3) I am the breath which sustains the All; I am the breeze that you sense in the night.

4) I am the rabbit chasing across the glen; I am the deer who is stilled by the light.

5) I am the flower amongst the vast meadow; I am the stars which gleam across the sky.

6) I am the palm swaying in the breeze; I am the moon which shines down from on high.

7) I am the Presence Who calls in the Forest; I am the froth upon the mighty sea.

8) I am in you and in all those around you; I am in the world and in every face you see.

9) The cosmic dance is to my own tune in perfect rhythm and harmony,

10) For I am She Who composed the song; And I am She Who holds the Key.

11) The Key to the Dance is the purity of the Dove, in mind and heart and soul.

12) Open the Dance and enter therein and join the spiral of the knoll.

13) For the spiral goes round and round and round, upwards ever higher.

14) Till finally the highest note of all brings us to our Desire.

15) And so in all your thoughts and words remember this one thing,

16) It is only in the purity of the Dove that the truth shall ever ring.

17) And when you look upon the flower, the stars and the mighty sea,

18) I am the Dove within and you are gazing upon Me.

19) I am the Holy Daughter and I am the Dove of Purity.

Let us Bless the Queen of Heaven,

Blessed is She.

  1. She, the Daughter of Holy Wisdom, did not create a monstrous demiurge. Nor is She the cause of the ‘fall of Creation’. She is not ‘trapped’ within the Earth nor is She in need of Her Divine Consort to save Her. These ideas all came from Gnostic Christian Patriarchy who literally took pre-Christian Gnostic texts and re-wrote them and in the process, not only demoted Her, but often-times changing Her into Male.In her book, The Wisdom Goddess, Rose Horman Arthur places the Christian Gnostic Gospels side by side with the pre-Christian Gospels and demonstrates exactly how Holy Sophia was demoted.
  2. The Wisdom Goddess, Feminine Motifs in Eight Nag Hammadi Documents, is out of print, but may be found in certain university libraries and there are some rare editions, albeit expensive, through Amazon.https://searchworks.stanford.edu/view/1093065
