Invocation to Our Lady of Sanity

Our Lady who hath no name,
You whose gentle touch brings clarity
To the mist of a fevered brain,
We call upon you for healing.
(One comes forward, places a marble into the larger dish, rings the bell, and speaks a name.)
Our Lady who needeth no name,
You whose feet are firmly planted
In the realm of what is real,
We call upon you for healing.
(One comes forward, places a marble into the larger dish, rings the bell, and speaks a name.)
Our Lady who hath no name,
You whose words strike to the center,
Clearing the way through chaos and confusion,
We call upon you for healing.
(One comes forward, places a marble into the larger dish, rings the bell, and speaks a name.)
Our Lady who needeth no name,
You who do not judge cause or character,
But who firmly guides one back home,
We call upon you for healing.
(One comes forward, places a marble into the larger dish, rings the bell, and speaks a name.)
Our Lady who hath no name,
You who shepherd the lost,
You who hold your lantern for the wanderers,
We call upon you for healing.
(One comes forward, places a marble into the larger dish, rings the bell, and speaks a name.)
Our Lady of Sanity, teach us patience
And compassion for those who live far from themselves,
And have compassion for all drifting souls.
(Repeat as needed, until all marbles are used up.)

[Pagan Book of Hours]
