Threshold invocation for the Festival of Lughnasadh by Caitlin Matthews
“Lady of the Land, open the door,
Lord of the Forest, come you in,
Let there be welcome to the bountiful compassion,
Let there be welcome to the Autumn of the Year.
In fruit and grain you are travelling,
In ferment and bread you will arrive.
May the blessed time of Lughnasadh
Nourish the soul of all beings,
Bringing love and healing to all hurts.
From the heights to the depths,
From the depths to the heights,
To the wounds of every soul.”
