God of the Month: Consus

ndwinterwheat

One December 15, the second Consualia is held in honor of Consus, the God of the Granary. The first, held in August, is for celebrating the harvest. The second, this one, is for the autumn sowing of wheat. Consus of the Underground Granary protects the wheat supplies, which includes winter wheat. I usually place barley under a pile of rocks (to represent the underground granary).

Salve Consus Pater!

Protector of the Granary

Help us to husband our supplies

May the granary always be full

May we be grateful for winter wheat

In the hungry spring.

We thank You

Salve Consus Pater!
