Black virgins, file without pdf

“I am Nature, mother of the things, mistress of all the elements, origin and principle of the centuries, supreme divinity , queen of the Manes, first between the inhabitants of the sky, standard uniform of the gods and the goddesses. It is me whose will controls the luminous vaults of the sky, the salubrious breaths of the ocean, the lugubrious silence of the hells.
