Antinous for Everybody

I worship a dead gay teenager and you can too

A prayer to Salus on her feast day

Salus, giver of health, guardian of the people,
on this the Nones of August we hail you once again.
Feed your holy serpent, Salus, that giver of
health and wisdom, predator of pests,
deity of surging energy. O Salus, bless us
with all things that are salutary, with medicines
of prevention and medicines of cure, with
cleanliness and carefulness, with concern
for our neighbors, whose health affects our own.
O Salus, may our offerings to you be
accepted, for our well-being, O guardian
of the people, giver of good health.

One thought on “A prayer to Salus on her feast day

  1. Beautiful!

    Salus is not in my current calendar…but perhaps she should be.

    I am always confusing Aug. 5th with the Canem Cruces, but that’s on the 3rd…and the 5th in my non-spiritual calendar is this. So, yeah…!?!
