A Month of Devotional Thought — Demeter, Day 14

Today’s topic is how Demeter’s worship has changed in the modern era since the Classical one. One of the major differences is that there are no large festivals or Mysteries any more. This is something that is a grievous loss to us.

Unfortunately, because we don’t have the classic festivals, we are mainly celebrating the festivals either in small groups or as individuals. Many of us, who are able to have small gardens or farms, have also dedicated the work we do to Demeter.

There are also people trying to re-create Mysteries in her honor. It is my opinion that if they succeed we will have a beginning.
