Invocation to Lofn

Hail, Maiden of Peacemaking!
Hail, bringer of frith into our halls!
You who stand always between
The parties of war and conflict,
You who write truces
And live by compromises,
You who place peace above all things,
Be with us in our daily lives,
That we may learn to quiet our passions
And seek harmony in all things.
For peacemaking is more than merely stepping aside,
It is placing the needs of others above your own
And in so doing, making of yourself an offering for that peace.

Cloth of honor from the thread of truth
Weave your heart into all you offer

(A libation of mead is poured out for Lofn, and the jug replaced for the next day’s ritual. A follow-up to yesterday’s House meeting should be held, with an emphasis on peacemaking.)
