I light this candle to you. The flame flickers with life. I call upon you, sweet virgin, for you are the Guardian. I ask for your protection and your warmth. I welcome your companionship with open arms. I light this candle to you, in this place where fire dwells. I burn this incense and focus on your energy and feel joy. If I cry in your presence, you do not judge. If I stumble, you catch me. Oh sweet silent Goddess, observer of life, who guards the dwellings we hold dear; You who are the first; You who are the last, I pledge my soul, my respect and my honor to you, my patron.
Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth and Home, Goddess of Kitchen Witches, don’t let the flame of her hearth go out!
