We are coming to the end of Moura, the end of the year and the end of the decade of the 3320s.

For many of us, the tail end of this decade has been a particularly difficult time, even though, taken overall, it has been a decade of progress and achievement for Aristasia in Telluria.

To begin a decade on the Year of Sai Raya is particularly auspicious and we are hoping that this coming Raya Decade will be the brightest and best in our history. Very early in the decade we hope to begin the physical Sanctuary.

But for now we are still in Moura. Tomorrow (Sucridi/Friday) is its last day and the day of the Passion of Our Lady. In the evening of Sucridi, statues and pictures of both Mother and Daughter should be covered (for it is only through the Daughter that we see the Mother).

We shall be holding Divine Service on Saturday, which is Hiatus. On Hiatus itself it is important that no important venture should be begun as this is a very inauspicious day for starting anything. Properly speaking, one should treat the day as if there were literally no tomorrow - as if it were truly the end of the world.

As far as possible, we try to avoid speaking, or even thinking, as if there will be a future.

This is an important spiritual exercise and we find that the more faithfully one is able to follow it, the greater is the sense of rebirth and renewal on Eastre Day, the first day of the New Year, which this year falls on Rayadi (Sunday).

Divine Service will be at noon PST on Rhavedi (Saturday) at the Embassy Chapel.

We shall also be having Eastre Service on Rayadi (Sunday)
