World's Shortest Ritual

In ritual, it's always best when words and action reinforce one another.

Here's one of my favorite libation formulas: quick, no nonsense, easy. In English and her sister languages, to refer to someone as "my + (name)" is a gesture of affectionate intimacy.

 

Drink this (name of libation) with me,

my (name of deity),

and I will drink with You.


(Pour libation.)

(Drink.)

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
