Roman prayer is a full body, all-encompassing experience. It is more than simply the words we speak and the intent we hold in our hearts. Our entire being pronounces the prayer: our hands, our gestures, our actions, our posture, even our dress. Therefore, prayer to the Roman was a very mindful state of being.
Michael over at Mea Pietas has been putting out some great introductory material for traditional cultus. I highly encourage you to check out his blog. It’s great to see another Roman voice out there!
