The Madrian Creed

Chants, Creeds, Prayers, & Texts

I believe that I am created
from before the dawn of time
by the one eternal Goddess.
I believe that the Goddess is One
and there are none beside Her,
And I believe that She is also Three.

I believe in the Mother,
Who is pure Light,
the Creatrix of the earth and of the heavens
and of all the illimitable cosmos.

And I believe in Her virgin Daughter,
born of the virgin Mother,
the ruler of all the energies of creation,
Whose nature is perfect Love.

And I believe in She that stands beyond these Two,
Whose Name has not been spoken on this earth;
For She is the Beginning and the End,
the First Principle and the Final Cause,
the unoriginated Origin of being.

I believe that I was made a perfect creature;
and at the dawn of time my soul did turn
from the Perfection of existence
in the infirmity of her sovereign will;
And through this fault do I suffer
the limitation of imperfect being.

I believe that the Daughter of Eternity
gave herself to be cast down into darkness and death.
I believe that She rose from death triumphant,
And reigns as Queen of Heaven.

I believe that through Her death
the fault of my soul shall perish,
And I believe through Her triumphant life
My soul shall rise renewed in her perfection,
that she may return to eternal communion
with the one eternal Goddess.
