Rite of Aurora (Morning Prayer)

To go straight to the entire ritual, scroll down to RITE OF AURORA. Females are veiled: (Why Veil During Prayer? link coming soon).

The prayer time of Aurora (morning prayer) is in honor of the Holy Daughter, Zoe Sophia and of Mary Magdalene.

The following are suggestions, only, and are certainly not mandatory. Devotees may choose which of the following prayers and sections of the Rite of Aurora resonate with them or they may pray in their own words.

If at all possible, it is best if the family can gather for prayer at least one time a day. In this case, the prayers and rites should be adapted for children. The prayer to the Guardian Angel along, with one of the basic prayers and a scripture reading from a children’s bible are some suggested recommendations for children. We will be adding special prayers for children in the near future.

If time is limited, a simple Hail, Zoe, an Our Father and a quick mantra prayer to the Jana of the day are a wonderful way to begin the day. A simple lifting up of the mind and heart to the Holy Daughter and the Divine Son connects you with Them and draws to you Their Presence. A brief scripture reading, psalm reading, chant or hymn are all acts of praise and worship for the time of Aurora. Best of all, are prayers offered in your own words.

Please note: The days of the week are named after our Sacred Symbols which represent our Great Mysteries. (See: link coming soon).

If possible, light candle and incense. Females should be veiled with a chapel veil, scarf, hat, mantilla or kerchief. (We cover our heads for formal prayer and rituals. It is not necessary for all times of prayer.)

To make holy water: (link coming soon).

There is a tradition in certain Christian Churches of greeting the four archangels in the Cardinal Directions during high and solemn liturgies. We do the same on a daily basis. These rituals surround us with the presence, protection and help of the Janae and of the angels. The daily Communions with the Essene Angels are included as an option.

In the morning, we greet the Janae of Sophia and we bless the Essene Angel of the Earthly Mother. In the evening, we greet the Archangels of the True Father and we bless the Essene Angel of the Father.

Please note that we use our own system of Cardinal Directions/ Elements and Days.

Jana is pronounced yah-nah and means gate or divine gate.

Reminder, all prayers are optional. These are suggestions, only.
