I’ve been watching Xena: Warrior Princess from the beginning. Today I was watching the episode with the 3 Fates (episode title: Remember Nothing), and in it Xena goes to their temple to honor her dead brother. I thought the prayer she was reciting was simple and beautiful, so I wrote it down.
This would be a nice way to honor a loved one during the anniversary of their passing, or during Samhain.
You will need: 3 pillar candles (one for each Fate), and a 4th, smaller taper candle to light the other three.
Prayer to honor the dead
(light smaller candle)
By this flame I call on The Three Fates…
The Maiden…(light 1st pillar candle)
The Mother…(light 2nd pillar candle)
and The Crone…(light 3rd pillar candle)
Comfort (name of dead) who’s life you cut on this day (number of days and/or years) ago.
So Mote It Be.
Love & Light
