Holy God
Holy Mighty One
Holy Immortal One
Have mercy on us.  Amen.

  ************

     This chaplet prayer is a meditation on seven signs or manifestations of the Christ, which scholars suggest form one of the sources of the Gospel of John.  The signs not only point to the meaning of the life and ministry of Jesus, but are also portals for entry into the deeper mystery and knowledge of the inner meaning of the Christ event.  The reconstructed “Signs Gospel” provides a different order and number for the signs than Canonical John.  In all, there are 22 sections to the reconstructed gospel, which may relate mystically to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and each one can be prayed as a mystery of Christian Qabalah, to enter into the higher mysteries of God.

 Traditional Seven Signs of the Gospel of John

 1. Turning water into wine (2:1-12)
2. Healing the noblewoman's son (4:46-54)
3. Healing the man at Bethesda (5:1-47)
4. Feeding the 5000 (6:1-4)
5. Walking on Water (6:15-21)
6. Healing the Blind Man (9:1-41)
7. Raising of Lazarus (11:1-57)
[8. Greatest Sign: Christ's Resurrection (2:18-22)]
