June 18: Sacred Month of Hestia

Once again, I was gifted this beautiful invocation with no author attached.  is it yours?  It’s stunningly beautiful!

I call to Hestia, gentle one, heart of the home, honored daughter of mighty Kronos and fair Rhea; as first and last born of those ancient Titans you take of all first and final offerings. Peace-loving goddess, tender of Olympos’ flame, in tranquil pursuits you take pleasure. Hestia, in the arts of the home we find you,  in a warm fire and a full larder, in a generous spirit and a soft voice. Goddess, in every house you hold safe the most profound of intimacies, the substance of family, the essence of society. Each home a safe haven, each hearthside your temple, each flame, each meal, each child tucked into bed a prayer of gratitude to you, dear goddess. Hestia, firm-willed one, kind-hearted one,  I call to you.

Blessings from the Hearth.
