Prayer for Thursday (Imbolc)

Today is the Pagan/Wiccan holiday of Imbolc (or Lammas if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.) It is also Candlemas for Christians and Triodion for Orthodox Christians.

Persephone, crocus in the snow,
light and life of somber Hades’ realm.
In the devotion of a mother and child,
in welcoming sorrow, in comforting grief,
in joy awakened, in sweet homecoming,
in these we know you, child of Demeter.
Persephone, queen of the underworld,
friend of those who mourn and those who are mourned,
bright jewel of the earth, fair flower of the field,
we thank you for hope, for patience, for faith,
for the longed-for return of great love.
Persephone, we praise and honor you.
