Yesterday, Phaedra Bonewits announced on Facebook that her husband, noted Pagan author and theologian Isaac Bonewits, was nearing the end of his battle with cancer.

Isaac and Phaedra Bonewits.

“Just wanted to address the rumors that Isaac is back in the hospital. He is at home as he had wished, but he is nearing the end. His brothers and sisters are on their way to say goodbye. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.”

Since then, tributes and blessings have been pouring in.

“Dearest Isaac, We shall all miss you so much, but as you take off on that Great Adventure may our love and affection for you act like fuel for your journey – riding the waves of compassion to the Isles of the Blest. Blessings blessings blessings, Awen, Awen, Awen”Philip Carr-Gomm

“Every day I feel more and more blessed to know Isaac. His sense of humor will inspire me forever — and I will always be jealous of that great shock of hair. Ever-blessings.”Ashleen O’Gaea

“Our candle is lit for the journey. Fritz and I shall keep vigil with you. Love and all blessings upon you both. May Brid guide his steps and may his ancestors come forth to welcome Isaac home.” Wren Walker

And hundreds more from Pagans of all positions, faiths, and walks of life.

The Wild Hunt would like to deeply thank Isaac Bonewits for his incalculable contributions to modern Paganism, and wish him a good journey on this transition. My blessings to Isaac’s family and friends during this time. If you want to leave a message of support or blessing, now would be the moment.
