The Holy Gnostic Rosary*
Spiritual Exercises vol.1
In the name of the
Unknown Father, in Truth ,Mother of all,
in union and redemption and sharing of the powers,
peace to all on whom this name reposes.
I acknowledge one
great invisible God, unrevealable
, unmarked, ageless and unproclaimable ; the unknown Father,
the Aeon of the aeons, who brought forth in the silence
with his providence : the Father, the Mother, and the Son.
I acknowledge the
Christos, the self-begotten living son,
the glory of the Father and the virtue of the Mother,
who given birth from the virginal and ineffable mother
was made incarnate, the Perfect one. Who in the word of
the Great Invisible God, came down from above to annul
the emptiness of this age and restore the fullness to the Aeon.
I acknowledge the
Holy Spirit, the Bride of the Christos,
the Mother of the Aeons, the great virginal and ineffable
Mother who proceeded from herself a gift of Herself out of
the silence of the Unknown God.
I acknowledge the
Light of the one church in every place:
Interior, Invisible, Secret and Universeal,
the foundation of the lights of the great living God.
I seek liberation of my perfection from the corruptions
of the world and look to the gathering of the sparks of Light
from the sea of forgetfulness.
Almighty God, whose
footstool is the highest firmament :
Great Ruler of Heaven, and all the powers therein :
Hear the prayers of Thy Servants, who put their trust in Thee.
We pray Thee, supply our needs from day to day : command Thy
heavenly host to comfort and succor us :
That it may be to Thy glory and unto the good of man.
Forgive us our transgressions as we forgive our brothers and sisters:
be present with us: strenghten and sustain us :
For we are but instruments in Thy hands.
Let us not fall into temptation : defend us from all danger and evil:
Let Thy mighty power ever guard and protect us.
Thou great fount of knowledge and Wisdom :
Instruct Thy servants by Thy holy presence:
Guide and support us, now and forever.
Hail Sophia, full
of light, the Christ is with thee,
blessed art thou among all the aeons, and blessed is the liberator
of thy light, Jesus. Holy Sophia, Mother of all gods, pray to
the Light for us thy children, now and in the hour of our death.
Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
unto the aeons of aeons.
THE ORDER OF THE RECITATION OF THE HOLY GNOSTIC ROSARY.
The Assumption of Sophia.
Hail to the Great
Savior, for He has lifted the Soul and the Heart of the Heavens
out of the prisonhouse of matter and raised Her up into the Pleroma.
The Coronation of Sophia.
And the Lord gave
unto Sophia a crown with twelve stars
which are the lights of redemption and the Throne of
Manifestation for Her seat, and He also gave unto Her
the Cross of Mystery as a scepter by which she shall rule the Aeons.
And the Lord laid
the Kingdom at Her feet, and renounced all
sovereignty and rule unto Her Throne. The sword that he brought
he received at her hands, to redeem and to conquer for the reception of the Light.
"My Soul doth
magnify the Lord, for a lowly handmaid hath been found
perfected in Sophia and the King is come. Be it done according to thy Word".
The King answered
and said ,
"Arise, O Daughter of the Light, and
enter into thy rest."
The Descent of the New Jerusalem.
Behold, a small star
from the Heavens descends to the Earth,
With Light more brilliant than the Sun.
It comes to dwell in the Hearts of the children of men,
and these hearts are the foundation upon which is built
the Eternal City, New Jerusalem.
Sophia ten times, while
meditating on the Mystery.
19. Closing prayer.
O Gentle, O Kind,
O Blessed Sophia,
Thy children on earth call unto Thee.
We pray Thee, Beloved Mother, to cast forth
thy net of woven starlight.
Fling it wide across the ocean of the universe
to gather us home to the realms of Light.
