Of the ceremony of the Introit.

"The" DEACON, "opening the door of the Temple, admits the congregation and takes his stand between the small altar and the font. (There should be a doorkeeper to attend to the admission.)"

"The" DEACON "advances and bows before the open shrine where the Graal is exalted. He kisses the Book of the Law three times, opens it, and places it upon the super-altar. He turns West."

The DEACON. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. I proclaim the Law of Light, Life, Love, and Liberty in the name of GR:Iota-Alpha-Omega.

The CONGREGATION. Love is the law, love under will.

"The" DEACON "goes to his place between the altar of incense and the font, faces East, and gives the step and sign of a Man and a Brother. All imitate him."

The DEACON and all the PEOPLE. I believe in one secret and ineffable LORD; and in one Star in the company of Stars of whose fire we are created, and to which we shall return; and in one Father of Life, Mystery of Mystery, in His name {346} CHAOS, the sole viceregent of the Sun upon Earth; and in one Air the nourisher of all that breaths.

And I believe in one Earth, the Mother of us all, and in one Womb wherein all men are begotten, and wherein they shall rest, Mystery of Mystery, in Her name BABALON.

And I believe in the Serpent and the Lion, Mystery of Mystery, in his name BAPHOMET.

And I believe in one Gnostic and Catholic Church of Light, Love and Liberty, the Word of whose Law is GR:Theta-Epsilon-Lambda-Eta-Mu-Alpha.

And I believe in the communion of Saints.

And, forasmuch as meat and drink are transmuted in us daily into spiritual substance, I believe in the Miracle of the Mass.

And I confess one Baptism of Wisdom whereby we accomplish the Miracle of Incarnation.

And I confess my life one, individual, and eternal that was, and is, and is to come.

GR:Alpha-Upsilon-Mu-Gamma-Nu, GR:Alpha-Upsilon-Mu-Gamma-Nu, GR:Alpha-Upsilon-Mu-Gamma-Nu.

"Music is now played. The child enters with the ewer and the salt. The "VIRGIN" enters with the Sword and the Paten, The child enters with the censer and the perfume. They face the "DEACON "deploying into line from the space between the two altars."

The VIRGIN. Greeting of Earth and Heaven!

"All give the hailing sign of a Magician, the "DEACON "leading.

The" PRIESTESS, "the negative child on her left, the positive child on her right, ascends the steps of the High Altar. They await her below. She places the Paten before the Graal. Having adored it, she descends, and with the children following her, the positive next her, she moves in a serpentine manner involving 3 1/2 circles of the Temple. (Deosil about altar, widdershins about font, deosil about altar and font, widdershins about altar and so to the Tomb in the west.) She draws her sword and pulls down the Veil therewith.)"

The PRIESTESS. By the power of + Iron, I say unto thee, {347} Arise. In the name of our Lord + the Sun, and of our Lord + that thou mayst administer the virtues to the Brethren.

"She sheathes the Sword."

"The "PRIEST, "issuing from the Tomb, holding the Lance erect with both hands, right over left, against his breast, takes the first three regular steps. He then gives the Lance to the "PRIESTESS "and gives the three penal signs.

He then kneels and worships the Lance with both hands.

Penitential music."

The PRIEST. I am a man among men.

"He takes again the Lance and lowers it. He rises."

The PRIEST. How should I be worthy to administer the virtues to the Brethren?

"The "PRIESTESS "takes from the child the water and the salt, and mixes them in the font."

The PRIESTESS. Let the salt of Earth admonish the Water to bear the virtue of the Great Sea. "(Genuflects)." Mother, be thou adored!

"She returns to the West, + on "PRIEST "with open hand doth she make, over his forehead, breast and body."

Be the PRIEST pure of body and soul!

"The "PRIESTESS "takes the censer from the child, and places it on the small altar. She puts incense therein. "Let the Fire and the Air make sweet the world! "Genuflects." Father, be thou adored!

"She returns West, and makes with the censer + before the "PRIEST, "thrice as before."

Be the PRIEST fervent of body and soul!

"(The children resume their weapons as they are done with.)

The "DEACON "now takes the consecrated Robe from the High Altar and brings it to her. She robes the "PRIEST "in his Robe of scarlet and gold."

Be the flame of the Sun thine ambiance, O thou PRIEST of the SUN!

"The "DEACON "brings the crown from the High Altar. (The" {348} "crown may be of gold or platinum, or of electrum magicum; but with no other metals, save the small proportions necessary to a proper alloy. It may be adorned with divers jewels; at will. But it must have the Uraeus serpent twined about it, and the cap of maintenance must match the scarlet of the robe. Its texture should be velvet.)" Be the Serpent thy crown, O thou PRIEST of the LORD! "Kneeling she takes the Lance between her open hands, and runs them up and down upon the shaft eleven times, very gently." Be the LORD present among us! "All give the Hailing Sign." The PEOPLE: so mote it be.
