Call to the Horned

(priest)

 

My brothers and sisters:

it is said that long ago, the Horned our god lived on high in the House of Thunder,

but that looking down from Heaven upon his people, he saw us cold, and hungry, and in darkness,

and so, in his mighty love, he stole the Fire of the Gods from the Hearth of Thunder

and came down to Earth to give it to us here.

For this, he was to pay a terrible price,

but his brave deed was the making of us;

since when the sacred Witch-Fire has burned at the heart of our people's history.

People of the Red Thread, my sisters and brothers:

 let us lift up our hands and call once again

to the Horned our god, Giver of Fire.
