I cannot thank you enough for defeating those invaders in the Holy Mausoleum, and especially for protecting the Sword of the Creator. That sword is one of the Heroes' Relics, and the most precious artifact in the church's possession. It is also a weapon of terrifying power. For now...I will entrust the sword to you. Please, use it wisely.
— Rhea

The Goddess's Rite of Rebirth (Japanese: 女神再誕の儀 Rite of the Goddess's Resurrection) is the fourth chapter of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

In light of the assassination threat against Rhea, Byleth's mission for the month is to aid in the security detail for the upcoming Rite of Rebirth. Byleth and their students realize that the way they found the assassination plot out was too easy and deduce that it is a distraction for some other objective. They conclude that the true goal is to break into the Holy Mausoleum where the remains of Saint Seiros are allegedly stored. At the end of the month, the class ambushes a group of thieves led by a mysterious Death Knight clad in armor designed to look like the Grim Reaper. Circumventing or overpowering the Death Knight, the party routs the thieves. A mage manages to break open Seiros' coffin, but only finds a sword. Byleth takes the sword and discovers it is a relic that they can wield. Afterwards, Rhea reveals that the sword is the Sword of the Creator, the weapon wielded by the Liberation King Nemesis. She entrusts the blade to Byleth. Elsewhere, the masked individual and an unidentified accomplice discuss the events that occurred in the tomb. The masked individual decides to allow Byleth to keep the Sword of the Creator and wait for more information before acting, and allows their accomplice to take command of the Death Knight.

This month's quests unlock tournaments and tea parties.

Tournaments allow your units to participate in a 5-round tournament based on a single weapon with cash and valuable items as prizes. Each fight lasts for four phases of combat, and once time runs out, the player will automatically lose, regardless of how well your units are faring in the match. You also have two chances to heal your unit throughout the tournament, which can be spent at any time between rounds (including consecutively).

Tea parties allow you to bond with a unit, and can now be triggered in place of buying birthday flowers. You can also initiate tea parties by talking to the unit you seek to invite while exploring the monastery. You can offer a unit tea and converse with them; if you give responses they like, your support with them and the charm stat of both you and the other unit will increase.

Also note that there's a particularly brutal (but fortunately optional) cavalry boss coming up this month, who is carrying a rare item that cannot be acquired from other sources: the Dark Seal. If you're a Golden Deer, having Lysithea at B rank in Reason for Dark Spikes Τ would be really helpful. Unfortunately, she only has D+ Reason if borrowed for mission assistance by the other houses. You could always push someone to level 10 to make them a Thief so you can steal the Dark Seal from the boss without having to actually fight them, though you will need to afterwards utilize certain Combat arts to adjust the position of the thief so that they do not get killed by said boss after successfully stealing the Dark Seal. It's also now possible to unlock Byleth's C-support with Dimitri.

Should the player successfully obtain a Dark Seal, they can now use it to promote a unit into a Dark Mage or a Dark Bishop once they reach level 10 and 20, respectively. Unfortunately, one notable downside for promoting a unit into these classes is that they are only available for male units, when almost all of the magically-inclined characters are predominantly female. Aside from Hubert, who is a more common recipient of the Dark Seal and benefits the most from these classes, the only other male characters who have (at minimum) a decent affinity towards magic-based classes are Linhardt, Lorenz, Hanneman, and maybe Felix, Sylvain, and Ignatz. Otherwise, if the player does not seek to promote anyone into any of the Dark Seal-based classes, it is best to ignore the boss and progress onward with the story.
