I have double-checked the Rosary instructions--but instead of going just by my memory and beads, I checked it against a little book about how to pray the Catholic Rosary.


+ On the Medallion or other terminal (usually a cross on Christian Rosaries), say the Filianic Creed.

+ On the first bead after the terminal, say one Our Mother.

+ On the second, third, and fourth beads after the terminal, say one Hail Mary.

+ On the fourth bead, say one Glory Be.

For each of the five decades:

+ On the large bead before each decade, announce the Mystery and say one Our Mother and one Glory Be.

+ For each of the ten small beads, say one Hail Mary.

+ After each decade, say the Daughter Prayer.

+ Close on the central medallion (a three-way connector) with the Hail, Holy Queen.



In the back of the book, I found this Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Litanies are often recited after Rosaries when the Rosary is said in a group. It seemed like something we may consider adapting; here is the Catholic version:

Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy

I have been a bit perplexed about the "portability" of the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) imagery into an all-feminine faith, which does not really have much propensity toward any "blood-thirsty" desire for sacrificial killing of animals.

Often a missal song for Agnus Dei and that of Trisagion have a same tune...

Sancte Deus, Sancte Fortis, Sancte et Immortalis, Miserere Nobis. (Perhaps someone with a good Latin proficiency can "feminise" this line. I have taken Hebrew in seminary but not Latin, unfortunately...)

The Trisagion can be translated into "Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal One"

It refers to the Trinity--is Dea a Trinity?

Otherwise, while I might squirm a bit hearing it (I hear it every Sunday) I see no reason why you couldn't just say "Dea" for God, and continue as above in English?

Note: Another hymn I am familiar with is the Akathist to Our Lady, which contains some very beautiful imagery.

Dea is indeed a Trinity in Filianic religion. For the fundamental statement of this, see the Filianic Creed.

Not all Déanists are Trinitarian but most accept the Daughter-aspect of Dea without necessarily seeing Her as a separate Person and naturally all accept nirguna brahman - Dea-beyond-Form. So, unlike West Tellurian religion, these two main Forms are not seen as exclusive alternatives but rather as perspectives, and "Pure Déanists" are usually happy to attend the Filianic Rite and vice versa.

In our Community we use a Filianic Rite for the "Daughter half" of the year (Conception to Exaltation) and a Déanic Rite for the "Mother half" (Rosa Mundi to the Feast of the Dead). Some see Filianism as a "poetic" enhancement to Déanism.

In Telluria the Trinitarian nature of Dea is long established in East and West. St Augustine mocked the idea that Dea could be both One and Three before his conversion to Christianity, after which he found himself defending the masculinised form of it!

You will find a clarification of the much-abused concept of the "Triple Goddess" here.

As far as I am aware, lambs play little part in Déanic imagery, except in the very occasional portrayal of the Daughter as a Shepherdess. I think the equivalent is the Dove, used for both Mother and Daughter, as in the Filianic Rite:

Great Dove of the waters that have brought forth the world from the matrix of Your being

Dove of the sacrifice that are crushed beneath the heel of death that You may come as our Saviour


Perhaps a Dove-translation would be in order.
