The Rose, Chalice of Being | eBOOK
Rev Robert John's address from the Rose Sunday Cosmic Mass
Sunday, 5 March, 2023
Rose Sunday calls on each of us, not only to recognise and affirm what has been growing and blossoming within our being, but also to raise those qualities and abilities to the heavens with thankfulness, and to offer them to be consecrated and used for higher purpose.
At Michaelmas, we bring the things we have made during the year to the Creativity Festival … we offer them to a higher purpose, they are blessed, and then they are used and enjoyed by others.
Rose Sunday sits opposite Michaelmas in the cycle of the spiritual year, and so is its complement. Rather than bringing and offering what we have made and created in the world, we bring and offer what we have established and strengthened within the contours of our being. We display our inner selves, offer and bless them to fulfilling a higher purpose and to uplifting and enriching others.
And so Rose Sunday also asks of each of us a commitment to utilise the growing spiritual life within us and the qualities and abilities this enables in order to pour forth the Christ spirit into the world.
