Wise words

“The first thing we ought to preach is reverence toward the gods. For it is fitting that we should perform our service to the gods as though they were themselves present with us and beheld us, and though not seen by us could direct their gaze, which is more powerful than any light, even as far as our hidden thoughts.” — Julian the Philosopher

  1. Yes! The Gods are owr number 1 priority.
    I do like Porphyry´s quote on devotion and sacrifice:
    “We offer sacrifice to the Gods for three reasons: that we may venerate, that we give thanks, and that we may implore from them things necessary and avert from ourselves things evil.”
    I should add: toe express our love!
    Galina I have a question if you can help me? I was raised catholic and the monotheist god has some atributes: infabillity, omniscience (all-knowing), omnipotence (all-powerful). I´m not an academic person, but I am interested in finding out about the multiple qualities of our Gods. Do you have any recommendation? Have you written about the atributes of Gods? Which are diverse and multiple.
    Thank you
    Kind Regards, Vanesa
