In the name of the Essential, All-Powerful God, existing by Himself, bound in heart and spirit with all the intelligences that inhabit the Holy Eons, who pray with us and assist us. Amen.
Be it known by our own signature that We, Shaun Patrick Michael McCann, in ecclesia IOHANNES IV, Sovereign Pontiff and Patriarch of the Apostolic Johannite Church, Primate of North America, Archbishop of Alberta, Titular Bishop of Ephesus, Primate of the Ecclesia Gnostica Joanita of North America, and holder of the Apostolic filiation according to the Apostle JOHN, in the due exercise of Our Sacred Office, and pursuant to the powers vested in us by the Apostolic Succession, and by virtue of the legal powers and prerogatives conferred upon us and all other pertinent instruments hereunto enabling us, on this First day of June, in the Two-Thousand and Twenty-First year of our Most Holy Lord, the One Hundred and Thirty-First Year of the Era of the Gnosis Restored, the Nine Hundred and Third Year from the transmission of the Johannite Lineage to the Order of the Temple of Jerusalem:
In recognition of her worthiness as an exemplar and advocate of the path of absolute Union with God through her devotion in life, and martyrdom in death, we rightly, duly and canonically declare Marguerite Porete raised to the altars of the Apostolic Johannite Church on the seven hundred and eleventh anniversary of her martyrdom.
We call upon the Apostolic Johannite Church to honour her memory, recalling her virtue and the teaching given by both her words and her example. For this purpose, we set aside the first day of June, for the celebration of liturgy in her honour, that her name may be invoked in the public prayers of the Apostolic Johannite Church.
Given from the Oratory of St. John the Beloved, at Calgary, Alberta, in the eighteenth year of our Patriarchate.
+ IOHANNES IV
Sovereign Pontiff and Patriarch
The Apostolic Johannite Church
