On the Burden of Being a Priest

Lets Play Two

Indaris

I wish that you had more time to spend with Perfone before she had left this Plane, for she is the only one that may truly understand what you go through every day! I did, however, talk to her about it years ago, and this is what I remember from our conversation. Perhaps you can, one day soon, find the time to also discuss this with Sister Gaia of the Legion of Northmoor, for she also has many insights I am sure.

Being the Priestess or Priest of a group on a holy quest holds different challenges than just being a warrior priest! While the Defilers mostly worshiped Isis like I did, not all in the group did so. I found myself assisting in prayers of not just my own Pantheon, but of others as well- Rurga, Algor and Dragonwright were also represented! Each God, Goddess, and Pantheon had their own rules, texts, and practices to follow! My Religious Lore was quite diverse!

I learned to respect all peoples, and all faiths, more through this experience! I know that you (meaning myself, U’Selekma) cannot possibly show that much enthusiasm for other faiths, but interfaith cooperation is needed to bring about peace and balance.

I hope this helps you Indaris! Please assist those in your flock in their prayers, and acknowledge not only your Lady, but all the others that watch over you all! If you learn, for example, that the Lawgiver is watching over you through a vision, which you know is true now, pray to him as well!

Spoken by his holiness U’Selekma, Pontiff of the Church of Light and Dark, Holder of the Sacred Ankh, possessor of the Greyhound Head Staff of Ra, and wielder of the Sun Disk, on the 4th of Od to Indaris and CrIsis.
