Preface

A B C
(Choice of dozens of texts appropriate for the season and feast days) It is right and just, it is our duty and a part of our salvation. This is what has been brought forth by the divine in the beginning and passed down through the prophets and the Christs of all ages. This is fulfilling the will of the people and the reminder of the covenant by which we all are bound to under purification. The death and rebirth of the human spirit has been manifest in the death and the rebirth of the Christs. We all declare the glory of this plan as we say, It is right to give thanks and just to give glory, o mighty divine, through this plan that we have brought forth and manifest here. This exists before all ages and through all time to the end of all covenants. This is the source of all life and the fill of all the blessings of the world. In the greatest presence of all the angels both day and night, we gaze to the heavens and we praise the glory of this life that we are living as we unite and acclaim,

 

Sanctus

Sanctus, sanctus power and might of the divine

The heavens and the earth are full of your glory

Sanctus, sanctus in the highest of the heavens

Blessed is the one that comes in the name of the divinity

Sanctus, sanctus in the highest of the heavens

Thanksgiving

A B C
To you, oh divine through the plan, we make a petition with  the guidance of the Christs and the reminders of the prophets. We ask that these sacrifices be acceptable in our continued understanding of our place in the covenant. We ask that the universal and holy congregation throughout the world be blesses as well.
The sacrifices made throughout the world by the prophets and the Christs have also been of a great deal of help to us. Grant peace throughout the world to all of us. The eternal and true divine plan gives us hope in strength in the good times and in the bad times.
We ask for the protecting help of our ancestors and of those around us. We ask this of one another as we try to improve our lives.
Therefore, we ask for this service to be given to us for our whole society so that we are continually reminded of our blessings forevermore, saved from damnation, and counted among the flock of everlasting life.
The plan of the divine and the divine is the fountain of all holiness and the foundation of the world, to be given to us time and time again through the prophets and the Christs who have given us this plan for our spirit. A pure sacrifice will be given to us through the name of the Christs. We give you praise, divine, for you have fashioned all the works in wisdom and in love. You formed man in your own image and entrusted the whole world since them, so that in serving you alone, the Creator, he might have dominion over all creatures.
Your plan came in mercy to the aid of all, so that those who seek might find you. Time and again you offered them covenants and through the prophets and Christs taught them to look forward to salvation. The Christs laid out the path for us and we have to follow it through the blessings of the ancestors and prophets.
To accomplish your plan, the Christs gave themselves up to death, and, destroyed death and restored life in the process. And that we might live no longer for ourselves but for the one who died and rose again. This is the satisfaction and the fulfillment of the divine plan.

Epiclesis

A B C
Be pleased and bless us, acknowledge us, and approve this offering in every respect; make it spiritual so that it may become for us the representation of the three states of humanity. Make holy, therefore, these gifts by sending down the Spirit upon us all so that these emblems may become for us the three states of being like that of the Christs. Therefore we humbly implore the divine: by the same Spirit graciously make holy these gifts we have brought for consecration, that they may become the three states of being at the Christs command we celebrate this great mystery.

Institution

A B C
On the day before they were to suffer they took bread in their hands, and with eyes raised to heaven to the divine, giving thanks they said the blessing, and broke the bread, and gave it to all of us, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, THIS IS THE BREAD OF NOURISHMENT FOR THE BODY OF DIVINITY WHICH HAS BEEN GIVEN UP FOR YOU ALL.
TAKE THIS AS WELL, FOR THIS IS THE OIL OF THE JOY THAT WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO EXPERIENCE IN LIFE. THIS IS A REPRESENTATION OF OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD AS SOMEONE WHO RECOGNIZES THAT WE DO NOT CONFLICT BETWEEN THE TWO NATURES.
In a similar way, the Christs would take the precious chalice in their hands and they said the blessing and gave the chalice to us all, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT, THIS IS THE CHALICE OF WINE OF REFRESHMENT OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL THE SINS AND THE FULFILLMENT OF THE DIVINE PLAN. DO THIS IN MY, AND ALL OF OUR, NAMES.
At the time they were betrayed and entered willingly into death, they took bread, broke it, and gave it to all of us, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, THIS IS THE BREAD OF NOURISHMENT FOR THE BODY OF DIVINITY WHICH HAS BEEN GIVEN UP FOR YOU ALL.
TAKE THIS AS WELL, FOR THIS IS THE OIL OF THE JOY THAT WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO EXPERIENCE IN LIFE. THIS IS A REPRESENTATION OF OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD AS SOMEONE WHO RECOGNIZES THAT WE DO NOT CONFLICT BETWEEN THE TWO NATURES.
In a similar way, they took the chalice and gave it to all of us, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT, THIS IS THE CHALICE OF WINE OF REFRESHMENT OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL THE SINS AND THE FULFILLMENT OF THE DIVINE PLAN. DO THIS IN MY, AND ALL OF OUR, NAMES.
For when the hour had come for him to be glorified by you, having loved all their own who were in the world, loved them to the end: they took bread and gave it to all of us, saying,
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, THIS IS THE BREAD OF NOURISHMENT FOR THE BODY OF DIVINITY WHICH HAS BEEN GIVEN UP FOR YOU ALL.
TAKE THIS AS WELL, FOR THIS IS THE OIL OF THE JOY THAT WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO EXPERIENCE IN LIFE. THIS IS A REPRESENTATION OF OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD AS SOMEONE WHO RECOGNIZES THAT WE DO NOT CONFLICT BETWEEN THE TWO NATURES.
In a similar way, taking the cup filled with the fruit of the vine, they gave thanks and gave the chalice to all of us, saying:
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT, THIS IS THE CHALICE OF WINE OF REFRESHMENT OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL THE SINS AND THE FULFILLMENT OF THE DIVINE PLAN. DO THIS IN MY, AND ALL OF OUR, NAMES.

 

Main Chant

Let us proclaim the mystery that surrounds our life.

A B C
The Christs have died, they have risen again, and they shall come through within us again. Dying has destroyed death, rebirth has given new life. We will come in glory as an example to all around us. When we take of these sacraments, we think of the balance of our life. We will do this until the covenant comes to an end.

Remembrance

A B C
Therefore, as we celebrate the memorial of the blessed covenant, which will be the resurrection from the dead, and the glorious ascension into heaven, your servants offer glorious majesty so that we may all come to everlasting light and salvation on our own accord.
Be pleased to look upon these offerings with a serene and kindly countenance as you were pleased to accept the gifts of your servants, the prophets and the Christs, in times past.
Therefore, as we celebrate the memorial of the death and rebirth, we offer you the three states of salvation and the three states of life. Therefore, O Lord, we celebrate the memorial of the death and the resurrection of the Christs and the prophets of old in a spiritual sense, we offer you in thanksgiving this holy and living sacrifice to remind us of our own path to the same destiny.

Epiclesis

A B C
Humbly we ask the petition of the divine plan on our lives to bless us as we take our quest unto the light. All of those who are participating here shall receive the blessings of deity on their lives as they remember their place in the covenant. We ask humbly that, as we partake of these items that have been sacrificed, that we may be gathered as one around the world. Look at the sacrifice that has been given to us in the universal congregation and have been commanded by the Christs. Grant us blessings as we partake of the sacrifice so that we are continually guided rightly and justly into the light that we have individually discovered. This sacrifice is for the glory of the plan that we all look to in our life day by day.

Intercession

A B C
Remember also of the servants of the worldwide congregation N, our president, our counselor N, our senators N and N, our bishop, N, and of all the clergy that are gathered here and around the world.
Remember, also, those who have come to the path, who have been on the path, and those who have yet to discover it. Remember also the Christs and the prophets that came before this time through their words, deeds, and examples. Remember not on our shortcomings, but also on our faith and commitment to the path.
Remember also of the servants of the worldwide congregation N, our president, our counselor N, our senators N and N, our bishop, N, and of all the clergy that are gathered here and around the world.
Remember those who have passed on into the next light in the hopes that they have seen the light of salvation that has been laid out to them. Remember all those that have seen and have taught us of the path to the light so that we may be heirs to the glory of the heavens.
Remember also of the servants of the worldwide congregation N, our president, our counselor N, our senators N and N, our bishop, N, and of all the clergy that are gathered here and around the world.
Remember those who have come to the light in life, the prophets who have guided us, and the Christs who have laid them out for us. Remember, also, those who have passed on in this world so that we can one day share in the glory that they have seen. Remember our ancestors, our society, and our posterity in all our dealings.

Doxology

Through the plan and with the plan and in the plan, the plan of the divine, in unity with the spirit and with the guidance of the Christs, the glory and honor is theirs forever.

So be it

The Chant of the Meditation

A B C
Let us remember the words that the Christs gave to us by the grace of the divine. We are taught to think of the divine always, so we should say on meditation. Let us forgive as other people forgave us.

We think of the heavens and the earth and the divine spirit that puts this plan forward to all of us.

We should remember the kingdom of the heavens on the earth that we are set to create.

We remember the blessings that we have received in the world.

We should forgive one another of bad things that are done in our human state like others have forgiven us.

We wait in the joyful hope of the divine plan to be realized in the world. In the meantime, we think of our personal journey that brought us to this point.

The kingdom and the power and the glory of the divine plan will be here forevermore.

Sign of Peace

It has been passed down from the Christs to the apostles and the prophets that the peace will be revealed to the world, Do not look on the sins of all of humanity, but on the faith of the people to follow in your path. Look at the unity of the world under the covenant forever and ever.

So be it.

The peace of the Christs will be with the world forever.

And with your spirit

Let us offer a sign of peace as we enter into this feast.

Sacrifice

May the words and deeds of our life take away the pleasures of the world, have mercy on all of us

May the words and deeds of our life take away the pleasures of the world, have mercy on all of us

May the words and deeds of our life take away the pleasures of the world, grant us peace

Invitation to Communion

Behold, the sacrifice of the covenant

Behold that which takes away the pleasures of the temporary world

Blessed are those who are called and have answered to the call of the sacrifice

I am not worthy as a human for this to come to me

But I will be healed with the sacrifice and the word of those with me and before me and I will be worthy to receive the invitation.

The bread of humility, the waters of purification, the meat of sacrifice

These items are eaten by the congregation similar to the communion ceremony of Christianity. Other items are substituted for bread products and the partaking is voluntary.

So be it.
