News Stories on Mexican N.S. Guadelupe S. Muerte J. Malverde

This is not related to Lucky Mojo directly, though LM does sell Our Lady of Guadalupe candles. I thought anyone who works with 7-day saint novena candles would get a kick out of this picture: an artist has turned something that looks like a silo attatched to the side of a building into a painting of a gigantic!! 7-day candle.

Definitely an interesting article, albeit somewhat disturbing. Perhaps I'm overly paranoid about the abuse of police power, but statements like this make me a little uneasy:

"Law said police have been seeing trinkets or religious medallions during traffic stops or raids for years, but that better education about what to look for can mean safer streets...'Street-level officers need this information. You never know what you're dealing with when you walk up to that car.'"

As someone who has been profiled and harassed by police in the past with no justifiable cause, and who has also experienced plenty of discrimination in various forms over the years because of my "non-normative" spiritual tendencies, the thought of police profiling based upon one's use of devotional and/or magical objects is unsettling.

Not exactly Hoodoo, but still an interesting read none the less.

Not too surprising. Many do not understand why people petition Santa Muerte. It didn't make sense to me either; I thought at first that her devotees were all either criminals or women who were trying to keep their husbands from straying. I learned that she will grant favors of all kinds to people of all backgrounds. We all have a finite number of days on this earth. Make the most of it.

I have been keeping a close eye on this story. Her influence is certainly starting to spread to a much wider audience!

I sell Santa Muerte items at my eBay store, including Conjureman Ali's book and Lucky Mojo Santisima Muerte oil. I notice that many of the buyers of these items appear to be non-Latino (based on last names) and are in every part of the US. I can't keep the book in stock; it sells quickly because it is a practical guide in English.

I posted this in the Santa Muerte thread a while back, but it is worth thinking about:

In church today we sang the old hymn "All Creatures of Our God and King" with words by St. Francis of Assisi. One verse seemed pertinent to this topic:

And thou, most kind and gentle death,
waiting to hush our latest breath . . .
Thou leadest home the child of God,
and Christ our Lord the way hath trod.
Gracias, Jesus Malverde!

I think the reason for her presence in the news as of late is due to the intensity of the violence that has plagued Mexico for the last 5 years or so. It's really become quite the nightmare there. Plus with the advancement of the internet, people are able to focus in on the problem states. With everything being able to be put under a microscope like that, it's no wonder. Also, Santisima Muerte was shown in episodes of Breaking Bad with the bad guys crawling across a town square to an altar.
