God of the Month: Fons

Fons, the God of Springs, is honored every October 13 at the Fontinalia. He is the son of Janus and Juturna, the Goddess of Springs. Fons is also the God of Pure Water. Every Fontinalia, garlands are thrown into springs and placed on the tops of wells.

(By now, dear readers, you may notice that Romans have a lot of Gods and a lot of festivals…. Party hearty everyone. )

Salve Fons!

God of Springs

We thank You

For Clean Water

For Clear Water

For Abundant Water.

 

May we always

Be welcomed to water

May we always

Keep Water Pure

May we always

Treasure water

 

Salve Fons!

God of Springs

We thank You

We offer garlands to You

For our water

Salve Fons!
