Today we mark the Adoration of Anubis, which many outside the faith may not truly understand.
Over the years Anubis who is one of the faiths oldest Gods has become associated more and more with a death cult a misunderstanding that has lead many to believe that our own faith is itself obsessed with death and impression that could not be further from the truth.
Anubis is it is true one of the key Gods who we turn to when a person is about to embark on that great journey from this world to the next. We all look to him to ensure that the rites of passage are carried out correctly in order to ensure a swift and unhindered journey to the halls of Osiris.
Anubis also has an important role for the living as well, for he is the patron God of orphans a role that sadly today is as relevant as it was in the past.
So as we mark this day let us look to Him and offer prayers to him in his many roles to look to our brothers and sisters of all faiths who are in need of His great guidance and help in these days of great loss and sorrow in so many nations of the world were we are seeing death and the orphaning of so many innocent children.
Moreover, in his role as patron of lost souls may he guide them and protect them so that they to no matter of what faith they are they can find peace and happiness in the next world.
