Evensong may take place whenever there is a quiet time of the evening. It is the time of the Great Mother, Sige/Barbelo. (Sy-gee, Bar-bee-lo).
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.
Light incense and females should be veiled (1)
Everything is optional. These are simply suggestions, only.
Trace sign of the cross (1)
Blessed is Our Mother God: (Adapted from the Madrian)
Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One.
She Who is Mari
She Who is Zoe
She Who is Sige
Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the darkness. Blessed is She.
The Thrice Holy Prayer also known as the Trisagion (in honor of the Divine Masculine). It is traditionally changed or sung three times while tracing the sign of the cross three times:
Holy, God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.
The Our Father:
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us away from temptation and deliver us from evil. Amen. (From one of the Peshitta translations).
Silver Star of the Waters: (Adapted from the original Madrian, author unknown. This is our Divine Feminine counter-part to the Our Father. While we believe that the Father and the Mother are co-Creators of the Cosmos, this prayer is specifically addressing the Creative Role of Our Heavenly Mother).
Silver Star of the Waters Who has fashioned all the cosmos into being beyond all knowing is the Splendour of Your Light. Enfold my spirit, within Your mighty Mantle, and may the Pure Stream of Your Grace flow within me, in this world and in all the worlds to come. Amen.
Hail, Sige, Fountainhead of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Empress of Heaven and blessed is the Divine Family. Holy Dea, Great Mother God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
O, Shimmering Darkness beyond the light,
O, Sublime Light beyond the dark,
You, Who are unknowable, but knows all,
You, Who are unmanifest, but manifests all,
Centre of All Life, All Mind, All Soul,
We bow before you in reverent awe.
Blessed are You.
Optional: Prayers to the Holy Spirit, the Mysteries Rosary (link coming, soon), meditation, contemplation, hymns, scripture readings, psalms.
Eternal is the Light of the Mother,
Eternal is the Love of the Daughter,
Eternal is the Life of the Great Mother,
Glorious is the Eternity of Dea.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Let us bless the Empress of Heaven. Blessed is She.
Let us praise the Holy Spirit. Praise be to the Holy Spirit.
Let us thank the Seven Archangels. Thanks be to the Archangels.
