Day of Sai Raya Theia, Lamp of Illumination, Joy and Benevolence.
The Reginite blog was off-line for a while due to a glitch. WordPress tried to contact me through a deleted email address. When I did not respond, they took my blog offline for security purposes. Thankfully, once I realized what was happening, the issue was quickly and easily resolved through the help of the excellent WordPress customer service.
However, due to this unforeseen issue, I was not able to post several articles, one of which was the announcement of the Feast of the Seven Holy Ones (Janati) of the Three-fold Heaven, Sai Raya Theia, Sai Candra and Sai Rhea. Liturgy, a worship service, the RoS/RoV or any other devotional service may be served in their honor, any day between now and Eastre/1 Columbadi/March 21.
Day of Sorrow
Sophia by Pamela Matthews
March 19 is Doloradi, which means Day of Sorrow. Though, traditionally, the Descent of Sophia is celebrated on Sept. 8th, the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we somberly honor Her Descent n this day. We are mindful of the Descent of Sophia down through the Seven Realms or densities because, as stated in the Sequence of Sophia, “I will never fall asleep upon the green grass, while the earth rings with the cries of the exiles.”
The “Universal”/Cosmic story of Sophia is that, rather than Falling into Chaos because She created in error, She was so taken with Her creation and with humanity, that She followed us down here in order to watch over Her Creation and in order to be with us.
(See article: https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/2438527/jewish/The-Shechina.htm. (As we see from this article, this is the same basic mythos as that of the Holy Daughter, Sophia.)
We are with Her, as She Descends, waiting for Her arrival. But when, as the Shekinah, Her Soul Shatters (1), and as Sophia, Her Light Scatters, we are shocked and sadden at the violent suffering of Her Descent. The density and lowness of our vibrational level was soul crushing to Her. It tore at Her Spirit. We softly chant melodies of sadness to Her, as She suffers, in order to be Immanent with us.
(Nicolas Roerich, Mother of the World).
We unite with Her Mother, the Madria Dolorosa, the Mother God of Sorrows and follow with Her, in spirit, as She suffers Her own Stabat Mater, the Stabat Madria, along the Seven Descents . (1 and 3).
Just as Jesus, Who is the embodiment of Her Twin Soul, the Christ-Logos, is to suffer through the 14 Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, She, the Holy Daughter, Sophia/Shekinah, suffers through the Seven Descents on Doloradi, the Day of Sorrows.
On this day, females may veil, (cover our heads with a scarf, hat, chapel veil, mantilla, kerchief or wide headband).
Males choose to wear a religious head covering.
On this day, we fast, according to our abilities, health and situation, and, if time, perform a lustration or sacred bath/shower using sacred salts, herbs or oils while chanting prayers of repentance.
There are no flowers or lit candles on the home altars/shrines/icon corners until the day of the Divine Feminine Eastre, Rosa Mundi.
Filia Sophia or Daughter God Sophia, restores us to Unity with Madria Sophia, Our Divine Mother God. Madria Sophia or Mother Sophia is Universal/Transendent Wisdom. Filia Sophia or Daughter Sophia is Immanent Wisdom.
The Divine Son, the Christ-Logos (Christ is the Christian name for Logos), raises us to the True Father. The True Father is Universal Wisdom. The Logos is Immanent Wisdom.
I am discovering some amazing Christian theology with which I am in accord. This is very exciting for me as a priest of both Christ and of Sophia. In everything I read, They, the Christ-Logos and Daughter , Sophia, go hand in hand. Together, They are Co-saviours in the esoteric rather than exoteric sense. They sustain and imbue Creation.
As we draw near the Day of Sorrow, let us remember that what lies beyond is the renewal of our spirits, our souls and Creation. Creation is Alive and Wonderful! It is Sacred and is Mystery! It is the very expression of the Mind of God as created through the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, Mother/Daughter and Father/Son, each with Their Role and Function.
A TIME OUT (Under Construction).
Due to the fact that I am studying new Christian theology, which has amazing ramifications for the future of this blog and the Reginite Order, reginite.com will remain under private construction until some time in April. However, the weekly articles and prayer lists will continue.
DAY OF SORROW Followed by Rosa Mundi
On March 19, the observance of Doloradi or
Day of Sorrow, I will be posting some devotional material.
The Feast of the Divine Feminine Eastre, Rosa Mundi, in honor of the Shekinah/Sophia becoming the World Soul is on 1 Columbina/March 21. (March 20 is a day out of time and a day of rest and somber silence, reflection and waiting. Similar to Holy Saturday in Christianity.

Let us Bless the Reginae (Queens) of Heaven (Mother and Daughter Sophia),
Blessed are They.
Let us give thanks to the Seven Holy Ones of Dea. (Janati).
Thanks be to the Seven Holy Ones.
Let us give praise to the True Father and to the Divine Son. Praise be to the Father and the Son.

- Madria is the title for Mother God. Its root means Mother. For Deanic and Divine Feminine Christians, this differentiates Our Heavenly Mother God from the Blessed Virgin Mary, known as Our Blessed Mother. Hence, Stabat Madria is the sorrowful hymn of Mother God over Her Holy Daughter while Stabat Mater is the sorrowful hymn of the Mother of Jesus, the embodiment of the Christ-Logos.
