Invocation to Vara

Hail, Maiden of Fidelity!
You who oversee all oaths,
You who hold us to our words,
You who will not swerve from your path,
You who are not distracted by temptation,
Make us strong and faithful
To all that we have vowed to do,
And to our narrow path of mindfulness.
For fidelity is more than merely
Clinging to the herd,
It is holding to that which is right
Beyond all measure of comfort or consolation.

Cloth of honor from the thread of truth
Weave your heart into all you offer

(All approach the altar and place their hands on the hilt of the blade, and say, "In Vara's name, I swear that all the oaths I have taken still hold true." A libation of mead is poured out for Fulla, and the jug replaced for the next day's ritual.)
