Our Lady of Celestial Fire

Festival of Neptunalia

July 23

(Roman) Ancient: X Kal. Sext.
A festival in honor of Neptune, originally as protector of the water supply, later as patron of seafarers. The security of water supply is especially critical during this dry time of the year. Thus, two days later the Furrinalia is celebrated for Furrina, a minor goddess of wells and springs.
