The crescent of the New Moon is full of holy Peace and we sacrifice to the Angel of Peace. The bright, the glorious, the water-giving, the warmth-giving, the wisdom-giving, the thoughtfulness-giving, the freshness-giving, the healing one, the Moon of Peace! With silent and peace-giving light the Moon shines upon the pastures, the abodes, the waters, the lands and the plants of our earthly garden.
The Moon and the Sun, the holy Wind and the Stars without beginning, self-determined and self-moved, all are regulators of the Holy order, of the days and nights, of the months and years. The face of the Moon changes its aspect, yet is ever the same: as the Holy Law doth reveal a different face to each of the Children of Light, yet is unchanged in its Essence.
We invoke the New Moon and the Moon that is waning, and the Full Moon that scatters the Night, the yearly festivals and the seasons of the Heavenly Father. For it was he who gave the moon her increase and her decrease, that through her we might know the movements of the day and of the night.
Thou silver and luminous moon! We are grateful that we may look on you and see in your reflection the blessed face of our Earthly Mother.
Among the world of the sons of men, the Brothers of Light are flames of radiance, as the stars pale in the presence of the bright and shiningmoon.
The moon walks in brightness across the sky, and delights in the Holy Law that fills our hearts with
Peace, Peace, Peace, Holy Angel of Peace
Illumine the silver moon with thy holiness, that all may look upon its beauty and feel thy eternal Peace. The desert sky is blue with night, and we see the first ray of the New Moon chaste and beautiful. Then do the Brothers greet one another, saying, "Peace be with thee!
