*In order to enhance your experience and participation, I recommend that you do the following if you so desire:
1. For consecration, and later in the ritual for communion, have ready a small piece of bread or cracker that you will put whole in your mouth to eat, and a little bit of wine (or water, if you do not drink wine) that you can drink in one single draught after swallowing the bread
2. Copy and paste in a document our Eucharist ritual so that you can give the appropriate responses, if you so desire. You can find the text by clicking on this direct link to the Eucharist at our website: http://www.gnosticsanctuary.org/eucharist.html
May God bless you and aid you in weathering this pandemic with health, grace, and compassion.
"The kingdom of God is inside you and all around you, not in buildings of brick and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there. Lift up the stone and you will find me there." These are the words the living Jesus spoke as recorded in the Gospel of Thomas.

We are grateful for any donation to the Gnostic Sanctuary. Every dollar helps, especially during these pandemic times when donations are down, as our rent and other expenses remain the same while our chapel in Redwood City is temporarily closed until we can safely open again.

If someone experiences Trust and Consciousness in the heart of the embrace,
they become a child of light.
If Someone does not receive these,
it is because they remain attached to what they know;
when they cease to be attached, they will be able to receive them.
Whoever receives this light in nakedness will no longer be recognizable;
none will be able to grasp them, none will be able to make them sad or miserable,
whether they are in this world, or have left it.
They already know the truth in images.
For them, this world has become another world,
and this Temple space [Aeon] is fullness [pleroma],
They are who they are. They are one.
Neither shadow nor night can hide them.
