Praying the Gnostic Rosary


The Order of the Recitation of the Gnostic Rosary
(The Rosary of the Pneuma Hagion)

Part of a new series of praxis-oriented booklets from the AGC.

An easy-to-use guide to praying the Gnostic Rosary, a contemplative practice using meditations from the Nag Hammadi codexes and related texts and from the Gnostic Church of Jules Doinel, Tau Valentin II.

From the introduction:
The Holy Rosary of the Pneuma Hagion is a contemplative  Gnostic method of prayer. With the Holy Rosary we meditate the mysteries of the Gnostic story:  the Silence of the Ineffable One, the emanations of the Aeons of the Pleroma, the fall and redemption of Sophia, the incarnation of Jesus the Divine Soter, the maturity of the pneumatic seed, and the Bridal Chamber.  The prayers and meditations are taken from the Nag Hammadi library and related texts as well as the Catechism of the Gnostic Church by Jules Doinel, Tau Valentin II.
In meditating on the mysteries, we create a space for the Holy Spirit to reveal these mysteries to and in us in a profound way.  Just as importantly, you are joining your prayers to those of Gnostics, saints, and angels who are  interceding for the perfection of the pre-existing ekklesia and the restoration of all things.
