Invocation to Snotra

Hail, Maiden of Discipline!
Your road is hard and rocky,
And you will not force us down its path,
But simply stand silent, a figure in the distance,
Waving to us, that we might meet your challenge.
You who know that virtue comes from labor,
You who know that labor is often suffering,
You who know that suffering can bring knowledge
And strength to stand tall against adversity,
Teach us, every day, the value of discipline,
Which is more than mere suffering,
But is the way of mastery of our Greater Selves.


From the "Pagan Book of Hours",
Order of the Horae
