Bring a rose to this service
The Mystical Cosmic Mass is Christ’s sacred meal with us. Not only is it an offering and consecration of the bread and wine, it is also the offering and consecration of self. It is celebrated for those present, and with and on behalf of the universe. All are welcome to participate.
Sharing in these mysteries assists with aligning the small I AM within us with the great I AM of the cosmos, and the soul with the hierarchies above and below us. It is a recognition and embracing of the nine spiritual realms as well as an acceptance of our role and responsibility towards the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms. The whole creation is involved.
The Mass is mystical and cosmic, inclusive, prayerful, evoking a closer relationship with the divine.

Preparation / Set Up
As is usual for all services, candlelight and flowers will enhance with spiritual atmosphere.
Please have close at hand a consecrated host, small bread roll or piece of bread and also a small glass or chalice of port, wine or fruit juice so you can join with the celebrant in the Offering and Consecration.
The fully opened rose is a symbol of our fully realised spiritual humanity. This festival celebrates the development of the I AM, or true individuality, within each person until such day as this is fully realised.
During the Mass, each person is invited to place a rose upon the altar symbolising their love for this divinity within them, and their dedication to its full expression.
Bring a rose with you to this service. Place it in a vase, preferably so it is visible on screen. We will bless our roses during the Mass.
