Nonna nodded. “I think you all know me. Everyone calls me Nonna, and I’m the circle’s crone, …. you can always call me… and I will share with you all my knowledge and perspective. That is what a priestess is for. We do not intercede on your behalf with the Divine; we will not tell you what to believe or what to do. These are responsibilities you must fulfill yourself. A priestess is a teacher, and we will share with you all of the wisdom that has been passed to us, all of the techniques we have mastered. But your journey is your own. It is as unique as each of you and only you can understand and fulfill its purpose.”
