Threshold Invocation For The Festival Of IMBOLC - Folklore for some, Tradition for Others


 Threshold Invocation For The Festival Of IMbolC
(to be said at the front door of the house on the eve of Imbolc, 31 January, in the evening)  

Midwife of Mystery, open the door,
  Infant of the Infinite, come you in. 
Let there be welcome to the newborn truth,
  Let there  be welcome to the Spring of the Year. 
In cold and darkness you are traveling,
  In warmth and brightness you will arrive. 
May the blessed time of Imbolc
  Kindle the soul of all beings,
Bringing birth to innocence and integrity
  From the depths to the heights,
From the heights to the depths,
  In the heart of every soul.  

*Caitlin Matthews, "Celtic Devotional"
