Morning Deaconess.. It sure is a bright morning, isn't it?

Lizabet wrote:Lizabet quietly walks into the church with Arthur, only leaning slightly on his arm. Though small, the church was beautiful, the sun shining brightly through the windows, the glowing candles adding to a sense of serenity and peace. A bit nervously, she approaches the Deaconess with Arthur.

leanasidhe wrote:Leana smiled when she sees Lizabeth and Arthur approaching and she gestured that the two sit down in front of her. Since this was to be a relatively informal baptism because there was no one else in the church, she wanted them to feel at ease. Once they had settled in, she cleared her throat and spoke.

"Greetings, Liza and Arthur, and welcome. Both of you are on the beginning of the road to purification, on the path of freedom from a purely material vision of the world, and on the threshold of infinite access to the world of Ideas. This path will lead you to Paradise."

She paused to let the words sink in and then asked, "Do you swear allegiance to the Aristotelian Church?"

Lizabet wrote:Lizabet gratefully takes a seat. As the deaconess begins to speak, she bows her head and closes her eyes, clasping her hands tightly together in her lap. She sends a prayer to Jah to still the confusion in her heart and to send her serenity and wisdom. Over the soothing voice of the Deaconess and the silence of the church, she can hear the birds outside singing. A feeling of peace overcomes her. As she hears the Deaconess ask them a question, she raises her glance to her. She smiles as she gives her answer in a clear voice.

Yes, I do.

Yes, I do.

Looking over to Liz and seeing her concentration, I clasp my hands to mimic hers, whilst continuing to listen to the Deaconess Leana.

Searching my memory from reading long ago, I speak softly in case I make a mistake:


I believe in God, the all powerful Father,
Creator of the Sky and the Earth....

Hell and Paradise,
Judge of our heart until the hour of death..


Closing my eyes and continuing..

And in Aristotle, the prophet,
The son of Nicomaque and Phaetis...

Sent to teach wisdom
And the divine laws of the Universe to straying men...


Peeking through one eye, I keep an eye on the Deaconess to see if I am remembering it correctly.. Not noticing any change in her expression, I continue.


I also believe in Christ,
Son of Mary and Joseph.
Who dedicated His life to show us the way to Paradise...

Thus after He suffered under Pilate,
He died as a martyr to save us...

He joined the Sun where Aristotle waited on the right-hand side of the Father...


Smiling as I know the ending quiet well. Having heard this repeated often whilst on my previous travels. I was always late entering the Church while away on business.

I believe in Divine Action;
In the Holy Roman Aristotelian Church;
In the communion of Saints;
In the remission of sins;
In Eternal Life.


AMEN - I state emphatically, knowing I am done with the creed.

I'm impressed, I didn't even recite the Creed for him on the way here, she thinks.

She turns her attention to the Deaconess, taking a deep breath before she begins to quell her own nervousness.

, she ends, relieved she hadn't stumbled over the words.

leanasidhe wrote:Leana didn't hear the bishop enter the church and almost jumped when his voice spoke from the rear of the church to welcome Arthur and Lizabeth into Jah's family.

She puts her hands on Lizabeth's head, whispers, then extends her hand to help her stand up. She then repeats the process for Arthur_Loxley. "Go in peace. You are now in the family of Aristotle."

Then she gestures to the bishop and asks if the three would care to share a picnic lunch as it's a beautiful day.
