Ritual

Purification

Illuminate the altar space,
anoint it with smoke or vapor,
and prepare the appropriate
sacrifices before purification.

Raise the lustral water
bowl before the altar and
say a prayer of purification over
it before purifying the space.

O gods and goddesses, ancestors and spirits,
through this water may you remove all evil
from me, my altar, my household and
from my every personal endeavor.

Begone whatever is unholy.

Invitation

Invite the gods and goddesses,
ancestors and spirits to attend the ritual.

Come to me, O gods and goddesses, ancestors
and spirits, so that I may give you sacrifices and
prayers, in your most sacred, powerful presence.

Libation

Pour out libations to each deity.

O [Deity]; For you I pour out this libation.
O ancestors; For you I pour out this libation.
O spirits; For you I pour out this libation.

Sacrifice

Address the sacrifices to the gods
and goddesses, ancestors and spirits.

I give blessed sacrifices in honor of the
gods and goddesses, ancestors and spirits.

May you look favorably upon them.

Prayer

Make any relevant petitions and prayers,
or perform any magical operations.

To all the gods and goddesses,
ancestors and spirits, I stay true.

If it is your will, give favor to my requests.

Let it be so.

Divination

Quietly contemplate about the
gods and watch for signs.

Closing

Close the ritual with an expiation
and a solemn, reverent farewell.

O gods and goddesses, ancestors and spirits,
if these appeals and my offerings have caused
unbeknownst offence, please accept
my deep regret and recall my good
intentions towards you.

May you depart in peace and benevolence.

Consume or drink any remaining offerings
and ground the spent lustral water.
