Office of the Readings for 2009

It's that time of year again! This post will remain the top article here for the duration of the Thelemic High Holy Days, from March 20th to April 10th. The Rite of the Office of the Readings is performed for all of the readings following The Invocation of Horus on March 20th. It may also be used with The Prologue of the Unborn on March 19th at your own discretion. We've done it both ways over the years.

UPDATE: Our Office of the Readings series is based on this ritual by the Companions of Monsalvat. Last year the site was down so I didn't include a link to it, but it is now back up.

Thanks! This will be our fifth year of doing the whole series. It's really interesting to hear Crowley's writings in this particular format, and I think it gives further insight into his mystical vision of the universe.
