In the name of the Great Barbelo, in Truth, Mother of All,
In union and redemption and sharing of the powers,
Peace unto all whom this name reposes.

5. Fifth Bead – Glori Patri:
In the name of the Mother, the Daughter and the Great Mysteria,
As it was in the Beginning, it now and shall ever be,
Throughout the Aeon of Aeons,
The First Mystery:
Terram – The Mother’s Creation.
And the Mistress of All Things was filled with delight, and ran laughing through the forests of the earth. And every peal of Her voice became the image of a golden fragment of Her Spirit. And the trees and rivers were filled with nymphs and every kind of sprite. And all were Her daughters.
6. Ave Zoe ten times, while meditating on the Mystery.
7. Gloria Patri.
8. Announce the Second Mystery: then say the Our Mother.
The Second Mystery:
Adoria – The birth of the Holy Daughter
For She had conceived a Daughter that was not separate from Her, but one with Her, and the Child of Her Light. Rejoice poor wanderers of the earth and exiles from the house of your Mother, for to you shall come a Guide and a Deliverer.
9. Ave Zoe ten times, while meditating on the Mystery.
10. Gloria Patri.
11. Announce the third Mystery: then say the Our Mother.
The Third Mystery:
Quassare – The Shattering of the Daughter’s Soul.
Now from the time when the Daughter of Heaven had passed through the first gate of Hell, a barrenness had fallen on the earth; and neither bird had sung nor any flower showed its beauty forth; nor was there joy in any heart. But when the Maid was slain upon the pillar of the world, an awful darkness fell on all the earth.
12. Ave Zoe ten times, while meditating on the Mystery.
13. Gloria Patri.
14. Announce the fourth Mystery: then say the Our Mother.
The Fourth Mystery:
Aurora – The Daughter rises to become the World Soul.
And the children of the earth cried: “Lift up your voices in song and laughter, for the Princess of the World was dead and is alive again, was broken and is whole; and there is no place whereto Her joyous rule does not extend. Give praise to the Mother of All Things and praise to Her Daughter.”
15. Ave Zoe ten times, while meditating on the Mystery.
16. Gloria Patri.
17. Announce the fifth Mystery: then say the Our Mother.
The Fifth Mystery:
Assumpta – The Mother assumes the Daughter and all souls into Heaven.
For the Spirit is One, and I am the Spirit. And you are the Spirit also, in the innermost temple of your heart. And She who is the Spirit, My Mother, holds out Her hands to you in happiness beyond all knowing and joy beyond expression of all words.
18. Ave Zoe 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.
