Honesty, love, wrath - many traits are 'divine'. There is only one that we possess and the gods do not: pain.


Our most holy mistress invites us to revel in that which makes us mortal. To embrace pain, so she may look upon us and know we are truly living. For what is a life without the sting of agony? Without the anguish of heartbreak? It is a life unlived - a life wasted hiding from the joys of the world.


In Loviatar's name, I ask you to live. To dig your nails into your skin and know that you are alive. To know that the greater the pain, the more exalted the life. Whether your pain comes from claws, the scourge, or an ache in your soul, know that our Maiden is watching over you.

She sees your suffering.

And she loves you for it.
