Each month, I will be posting excerpts from my memoir-in-essay, Persephone’s Children. I hope my writing vibes with you.
“L is for the liturgy in Latin.
“Et nómine Patris, et Fílli, et Spíritus Sancti.”
You loved the ritual as a child, the waft of incense as the censer swayed in the hands of priests.
But you couldn’t fully embrace a faith that refused to accept your parents.”
from “Blood Tithes: A Primer.”
Persephone’s Children to be launched October 12,2021 with Dundurn Press.
