Valentine's Day Rite

Salvete Omnes!

On a whim I decided to craft a rite that mixed the old gods being applied to a modern holiday. Note, this is not a Sacra Publica attempt, but a Sacra Privata one that I thought others might enjoy. Here it is:



Valete Bene!

Good job amice! I think this is a good example of how the Roman Religio can adapt and improve over time. Not necessarily change outright all our structures and traditions, but adapt to our modern world in our own Roman way.
The gods command me to sanctify my every action, and I obey them with all my soul, and they assure me of great benefits from my enterprise, if only I persist.
