O Blessed Aphrodite, Golden-Crowned Goddess, Of Love and Pleasure, I give thanks to you, For the small things
I've said it before, and I will say it again: We must stand for Love. The chaos and hatred CANNOT continue. The events at the US Capitol today were inexcusable.

The only necessary part is that you say your prayer with love.
