12 Jul

Hestia on a red figure vase84. To Hestia

Incense: Aromatic Herbs

Queen Hestia, daughter of mighty Kronos,
Mistress of ever burning  and peerless fire, you dwell in the house center.
May you hallow the initiates of these rites and grant them unwithering youth,
Riches, prudence and  purity.
You are the home of the blessed gods and men’s mighty buttress,
Eternal, many-shaped, beloved and grass-yellow.
Smile, O blessed one, and kindly accept these offerings,
Wafting upon us prosperity and gentle-handed health.
