The Season of Lent
In the forty days prior to Easter Sunday, the spiritual season known as Lent, we prepare ourselves to gain a deeper experience of the event of Golgotha and to unfold a greater understanding of the effect of the death and resurrection of Christ on each individual, this world, and the cosmos.
This season begins with Ash Wednesday when palm crosses are burnt and our foreheads are anointed with ash to remind us that our body is but ash, but our spirit is eternal.
A spiritual resource for private devotion during this time is Meditations for the Days of Lent. Or to share the Lenten journey with others, Daily Lent Meditations are held online Monday to Saturday and the Cosmic Mass is celebrated online each Sunday throughout Lent.
A selection of Lent and Easter resources are available through our online shop.
Three in One and One in Three
Our spiritual focus for this new year is Trinity: the three in one and one in three. It implies the cultivating of a threefold awareness. It speaks of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. It speaks to the trinity of our own being: body, soul, spirit. It embraces the trinity of experience: past, present, future. The workings of the light and the darkness in colour. It speaks of the trinity of influences within us: Lucifer, Ahriman, Christ. It is a focus that encourages us to consider more than what is physically apparent.
The focus on the Trinity asks us to take notice of and experience the soul and spirit levels, as well as our physical existence. It asks us to take notice of our sleeping life and our dreaming life, as well as our waking life – for throughout all these times different aspects of ourselves are active and experiencing. All these areas need to be more in the picture, more taken account of, for us to be truly whole and complete. So this is about healing.
To focus on the Trinity in the cosmos and in ourselves will bring a greater fullness and balance to our thinking, understanding, and expression. It will also bring the firmness and restfulness that we glimpse when we see the triangle, and this especially is very much needed on the earth.
Rosa Veritas is a spiritual community who recognise that we are spiritual beings living on this earth with a purpose.
Our spiritual teacher, Rev Mario Schoenmaker (1929-1997), gave us esoteric and spiritual teachings to enable us to grow and evolve in understanding and expression of the spirit.
We believe that the seed of Christ is within each one of us. We know Christ as a free-making spirit that works to heal, uplift and transform our soul-being. We see reincarnation as the unfolding of our eternal soul. We are evolving beings, learning to be whole and free.
We are located in different parts of the world, primarily Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands, and we meet together in different ways to deepen our ability to live according to the spirit that lives within us.
We offer different programs and activities: retreats, workshops and devotional services to strengthen our ability to see ourselves and one another as spiritual beings growing into wholeness and freedom.
