Jan 1 - Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Today is the Seventh day of Christmas, a day for mediation on the qualities of Libra: Justice, Charm, Perception, Idealism, Refinery, and Diplomacy. It is associated with St. Jude.

1. Begin with the sign of the Cross. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirt. Amen.

2 Remain in silence for some minutes. Let your breath attain a natural rhythm.

3. Sing or chant: Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, Kyrie Eleison or Lord have Mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have Mercy

4. Read, repeat, and meditate upon the scripture reading for today: Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.-John 8: 32

5. Memorize and repeat the scripture, taking it into yourself. Let it flow through you, and see how it applies to you, today.

6. Read, repeat, and meditate upon the Gnostic Scripture, Corpus Hermeticum, V:5 for the day:

"Most blessed sight were it, my son, to see all these beneath one sway - the motionless in motion, and the unmanifest made manifest; whereby is made this order of the cosmos and the cosmos which we see of order."

7. Memorize and repeat the scripture, taking it into yourself. Let if flow through you, and see how it applies to you.

8. Recite this small prayer:

I am a point of light within a greater light.
I am a strand of loving energy within the stream of love divine.
I am a point of sacrificial fire, focused within the fiery will of God.
And thus I stand.


8. Look upon the image of the Glyph of Virgo, and be silent.




9. When moved to do so, end with the sign of the Cross.
