The Anthem

Postby bdc » Sat Mar 08, 2014 5:58 am

A possibly pedantic question, on page 375, the invocation from Liber XV is referred to as "Thou that art One". The same phrase is referred to in Sample Ritual #8 of 776 1/2. However, in the Thelemic Mass in the latter - and also in Crowley's The Ship and the Grimorum Sanctissium - the invocation begins with "Thou who art I". Just wondering why this is? Do different occasions / intentions call for a different wording?

You have the wrong passage. The invocation in question begins:

"Thou that art One, our Lord in the Universe the Sun, our LORD in ourselves whose name is Mystery of Mystery, uttermost being whose radiance enlightening the worlds is also the breath that maketh every God even and Death to tremble before Thee..."

Etc.
Love is the law, love under will.
