Blessed Be Used in Some Initations

Blessed Be 

 

“Blessed be” is a traditional salutation in many contemporary magical traditions. Use of the phrase indicates that you wish good things upon the one to whom you are speaking. The phrase appears in some Pagan paths, but it’s most likely to be used in a Neo-Wiccan context. 

 

The phrase is part of a longer ritual, which is included in some initiation ceremonies. During that particular rite, the High Priestess or High Priest delivers what is known as the Five Fold Kiss, and recites: 

 

Blessed be thy feet,  

which have brought thee in these ways, 

Blessed be thy knees,  

that shall kneel at the sacred altar, 

Blessed be thy womb,  

without which we would not be, 

Blessed be thy breasts,  

formed in beauty, 

Blessed be thy lips,  

that shall utter the Sacred Names of the gods.
