Halloween...All Hallow's Eve...Samhain...the Feast of the Dead, the saints, the martyrs and the faithful.
Samhain Prayer. The night when the veil between the living world and the dead is at its weakest.
This is the night when the gateway between
our world and the spirit world is thinnest.
Tonight is a night to call out those who came before.
Tonight I honor my ancestors.
Spirits of my fathers and mothers, I call to you,
and welcome you to join me for this night.
You watch over me always,
protecting and guiding me,
and tonight I thank you.
Your blood runs in my veins,
your spirit is in my heart,
your memories are in my soul.
(Some might wish to name their past ancestors here)
With the gift of remembrance.
I remember all of you.
You are dead but never forgotten,
and you live on within me,
and within those who are yet to come.
And be careful Trick or Treating tonight.
