HANDBOOK

I INTRODUCTION:

Who we are:

We are a Feminine Religious Order of Devoted Chantresses & Devoted Sisters, Dedicated to Dea Matrona.

What we believe

We believe that Dea “Shining-Sky” is our Matrona “Great Mother”

Where the name Dea originated [Etymology]

(Italian/Latin) Dea from (Latin) Dies “Day”, “Shining”, “Day-lit Sky”; See also: (Catalan) Deessa, (French) Déesse, (Lithuanian & Old Latin) Deiva, (Proto-Italic) Deiwa, (Hindi) Devee, (Portugese) Deusa, (Irish & Scots Gaelic) Ban-dia, (Old Italian) Diana alt. Spelling Diwjana), (Greek) Dione, (Spanish) Diosa, (Welsh) Dduwies, (all derived from the Indo-European/Sanskrit root Deiwih or Devi (feminine) from Deiwo (neutral) “celestial”, “heavenly”, “shining” from Diw “to shine”. especially as the “day-lit sky”, See: Dev “’a shining one” and Devika (feminine) “Shining One”.

Why the Supreme Being [Dea] is called by a name that means “Shining Sky”

The Sun is the “Shining Sky Light of Day” [as the Moon “reflected Sunlight” and the Stars “other Suns” are the “Shining Sky Lights of Night”]. Spiritual ideas are often explained in symbolic terms using words pertaining to the Sky [Heavens]. Whereas, Material ideas are often explained in symbolic terms using words pertaining to the Land [Earth], and Soulish ideas are often explained in symbolic terms using words pertaining to the Sea [Waters]
