Hello kimberlyanne.


kimberlyanne wrote:First question....if I don't have an actual candle made for a specific Saint, is there a list or reference page somewhere with this information? Or would white still be considered universal in this instance? I have seen the pages for Saints w/history & prayers on the LM website...but I don't recall there being mention of "colors"


Not every saint has a specific color candle associated with him or her in Catholicism, in fact most do not. In Catholic influenced folk magic many do, but not all. A good source for such info is "The Magical Power of The Saints" by Ray T. Malbrough. Avalabe from LuckyMojo here: http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatbooks.html In general tho a white candle dressed with Holy Oil will do fine.

kimberlyanne wrote:Second...if I don't have an actual candle made for a specific Saint...can I dress a candle w/corresponding LM oils and selected herbs?


If its a saint that has an oil made by LuckyMojo then yes, but not every saint does.

kimberlyanne wrote:Third...how do I know what is considered an appropriate offering? I am guessing that whiskey/rum and coins are not the best choices here. I've read that I should place a glass of water next to the candle for St Expedite (I think he was the one) along with flowers. I've read mention of wine...and pound cake.


Here is where it gets a bit complicated. In Catholicism with very few exceptions technically you wouldn't make an offering to a saint, you can petition for their intersession on your behalf, but for many Catholics an offering comes too close to worship.

In folk magic tho this is not always so. In general a candle and a glass of water is good, but some saints have very specific and traditional offerings asked in return for there help. The most well know being the publication of thanks for Saint Jude in the newspaper and Saint Expedite's pound cake and flowers (or water or rum or red wine or coffee). <--- You see that? That's one of the discrepancy one sees all the time in such work, one person might say you must give red wine, another rum, and another still just water or fresh-picked flowers in water in the candle glass. I personally give a glass of water, you should do divination and ask the saint.

kimberlyanne wrote:So...do you put all of that there as you light & pray over the candle? Do you wait until your petition & prayers are answered? A sign? Movement?


Pay them their due when they have helped you, if they don't help you don't pay.

kimberlyanne wrote:Fourth...when you leave the pound cake/wine/flower....how long do you leave it? Do you replace it?


Until it gos stale.
God bless you Dr Jose Gregorio Hernandez.
Thank you Saint Expedite

Thx HD.

When petitioning a Saint...is it the same process/theory as writing a petition paper in other candle work? I haven't done any work with Saints...so this is some uncharted territory for me.

Kimberlyanne, at this point i would advise you to take a step back and read more about Catholicism and folk-Catholicism. You are approaching this from a piecemeal/case-by-case/outsider's viewpoint that is not grounded on a thorough understanding of the religion.

Seriously, one doesn't just waltz in and say, "I'm gonna petition Catholic saints" without having a deep appreciation for the Catholic church, for the cultural nuances of folk-Catholicism, and for the traditions of novena vows and spoken prayers.

You were given a good book recommendation with "Magical Powers of the Saints," and i advise that you also absorb the following web pages as well. The list is long. Please, do read them all before striking off into this "uncharted" territory.:

LUCK, PROTECTION, RELIGION, and MAGIC http://www.luckymojo.com/luckprotectionreligion.html

P.S.: From every one of those pages i listed above, you will find links leading to information on indvidual saints, some at Lucky Mojo and some at AIRR. Read them all!

For instance, just for starters, here are the Lucky mojo page and the AIRR page for a couple of saints whose names start with the letter "A" :

SAINT AGATHA CATHOLIC PATRON SAINT OF BREAST CANCER http://www.luckymojo.com/saintagatha.html

AIRR:Saint Agatha http://readersandrootworkers.org/index. ... int_Agatha

and

SAINT ANTHONY CATHOLIC PATRON SAINT OF LOST THINGS http://luckymojo.com/saintanthony.html

AIRR: Saint Anthony http://readersandrootworkers.org/index. ... nt_Anthony

Good luck, and most of all remember, if you have come to Catholic saint veneration and petitioning as a guest -- listen, learn, pay respect. Each saint is a unique entity -- there is no one way to venerate saints, there is no single or best prayer to speak, and there is no one form of thanks-offering that is to be made to all saints. Each has his or her own unqiue qualities, life history, interests, prayers, and cultural traditions.

Kimmie ---

Do not worry. This is a good path for hoodoo newbies like us. Once you research the above books and links it will start to make sense. I suggest you start with the Archangels section because I think most people believe or want to believe they have a guardian angel.

Good luck with the kittens...oh just the thought of them make me smile.

I agree with ablake. Start with angels, since they are universally regarded as God's messengers, and can be petitioned by those of any faith.

Thanks family! This is good stuff! I really had NO idea where to start...and my interest has been peaked via discussion on the forum. Y'all are GREAT!!!

Cat...you are correct. I do not have a thorough understanding of Catholicism/folk-Catholicism. I was christened/baptized episcopalian...but I refer to myself as being "religiously challenged" (chuckle chuckle) because I personally don't understand why we can't all just get along...I just claim to be spiritual...find what works for me...and don't worry to much about the rest. My interest in other "stuff" has grown by seeing & reading discussions on the forum. Call it a hunger for knowledge so my practice can be well rounded.

ablake...my kindred newbie friend :D ....Archangels is/are a great suggestion. I do believe I have a guardian angel...actually as wild and crazy as I was I am sure I have more than 1...watching over & protecting me was a 27/7 job! Well, I'm still wild & crazy...just lower keyed than I was 8 years ago :roll: . Have I mentioned to you yet that my sisters first name begins with an "a" and her middle name is blake? And....I've been Kimmie or Kimber all my life to family & friends ;) ! Way cool....

I started this response last night...but got side tracked w/my baby kitties. Took them downstairs to have feeding time w/Grammie (85 w/Alzheimer's) it was time well spent!

Is there patron saint for nurses and other questions..

Unread postby zee » Tue Apr 20, 2010 10:02 pm

Hi all,

I am a nurse looking to advance my career with further education, but am running into the usual difficulties: not enough money, too many prereqs in the programs close to home, and so forth, and I cant make up my mind ( am an RN but want to get into a good NP program asap, with low tuition and easy location of preceptors..is such a thing/combo possible?)

I wanted to petition St Gregorio as he is for health workers, but wondered if there was also anyone else on whom I could /should call upon? I also wanted to work a spell for the same effect for smoothing the way and incorporate it in my daily work. I enjoy candle work, but it is difficult for me to put out honey jars as there is no secluded spot in my home...but maybe i can work around that...

I just finished deep spring cleaning of my home, on the mundane and spiritual levels, and tomorrow will begin a 7 day uncrossing ritual, as i have been advised that i might have the remains of a crossed condition that was not properly removed. After that i plan to light road opener candles for this purpose, and also 'activate' a prepared success mojo from LM...

I have read the page on St Gregorio but am still at a loss as to how to petition him on a daily basis..can anyone advise on this as well as on what else i could do to further my nursing career at a swift and smooth pace ?

If you are comfortable with saints then Saint Martha is good for getting your employers to favor you. I believe the LM site lists Saint Agatha as patroness of Nurses here: http://www.luckymojo.com/patronsaints.html

In addition to Road Opening consider working some Crown of Success conjure to help you succeed and excell in your work. Worked along side Steady Work can help you not only move forward in your career but can ensure you continued employment.

Good luck!

With saints there is no "best". It comes down to you, who you are comfortable working with and who you have or can build a relationship with.

I can not comment o "goddess" as hoodoo is christian folk magic and I have had no dealing with anything of that sort.

Also consider the Attraction, Lodestone,Magnet, Fires of Love, Adam and Eve(if you are trying for a hetro relationship) Q, Lavender Love Drops (If looking for a queer relationship) and Fast Luck lines of products. Also LuckyMojo maintains a large free spell archive with a lot of love/lust spells that might be able to help you. Free Love and Sex Spells

Good Luck
God bless you Dr Jose Gregorio Hernandez.

The prayer is what is important - say the prayer and then speak to him in your own words. Do this while you hold the candle and dress it - then light the candle.

A search online suggests John the Apostle. One story says he raised from death 200 pagans who had been killed in a fire. Another tale tells how he was ordered beaten, poisoned, and thrown into a vat of boiling oil, from which he stepped unharmed. Sounds like just the guy for you to talk to! :) Many depictions of Saint John show him wearing a red cloak. This, combined with the fact of red being a fiery color, may suggest red as a good color of candle to dress with your Lucky Mojo All Saints Oil. Alternatively, you may prefer the cool healing of a blue candle.

Also, Lucky Mojo offers St. Florian Oil, dedicated to the patron saint of firefighters, who guards against death and loss through fire. He, too, may intercede on your behalf.

I don't work with saints too often, except for a few that I've had a relationship with from another tradition I work with, but I do enjoy invoking the archangels. Since you seem to have a good relationship with Saint Michael, you can try Saint Raphael who is known as Archangel of healing. He may be able to help you.

If you already know the man, and have a relationship but its not as passionate or as hot as you like then I suggest a Fires Of Love candle. If you are not in a relationship then a Love Me or Attraction candle would be best.

I see that you are going after a man, if you yourself are a guy you can petition Saint Sebastian, a true saint of gay love.

On a slightly related note I know someone is going to mention Saint Martha. I know that she is powerful but if you do not have a relationship with the guy then she may not be best for you.
God bless you Dr Jose Gregorio Hernandez.

Who to ask for help w/ break up work?

Unread postby merrygerry » Tue May 18, 2010 11:34 am

I'm new to this forum, and I have a follow up question for Hail (from St Martha thread). I see your point about asking saints to help with break up work - who would you ask for help - it seems like any religious figure wouldn't be appropriate - do you prevail upon the universe? Or do you reach out to a deceased relative? What entity would be proper to engage in assistance?
Also, if one is also doing work to get the married target to think of her (or him), would that be something St Martha would assist or would that be equally inappropriate?

Thanks for any advice / insights that you have - totally appreciated!

I don't believe it's the best judgment to use a Catholic saint - St. Martha - to break up a marriage. Yeah.
Since you're new to this forum, I'd recommend that you start with getting a reading to see if breaking up this marriage is worth your time and money.
http://readersandrootworkers.org/index. ... ootworkers

Take the time to read each rootworker's profiles to get a feel for which one may be right for you. Also, the Customer Testimonials area on this forum has feedback on experiences with products and rootworkers.

The best LM product I'd recommend for you is the Break Up Spell Kit. Everything plus instructions are included so you don't have to worry about having the correct supplies.
http://www.luckymojo.com/spell-break-up.html

However, get a reading first.

Thanks Flamethrower, appreciate your help and ideas.

I have been toying with getting a reading - I'm sort of curious what to expect - like is it a tarot reading by phone? I've read many of the testimonials and am intrigued by the idea, but wasn't sure what a reading included. Would love to hear a description of what to expect.

I get that saints wouldn't be appropriate for break-up work and maybe my question is a hairsplit - what I was wondering if there was a distinction between a breakup spell and something that was more along the lines of "think of me." Maybe your answer means that there is no difference - that trying to get a married man to think of someone isn't any different than break-up work.

As for the break-up spell kit, I did get one a month or so ago and performed it, of course, since then have read a lot more of the pages on the website and in the forum, so know there were pieces I could've done better. I've also had candles lit at the MISC church after reading on the site that the experienced workers at LM might do a better job than a novice would do - I really appreciate the service that LM offers, they are truly great people.

So again, thanks for your help, time and patience.

While I agree that calling upon a saint to break up a marriage is not something that they usually perform, there *are* instances of grey area. There are some Catholic rootworkers who talk about some saints aiding in justified work. Saint Martha will bind up and break up a relationship if the husband is a poor husband, or she'll tame him right quick. St. Peter is also known for forcing wandering wives back.

In conjure if you're case is justified you can even call for the death of someone from God himself. The bible is filled with imprecatory prayers. The key, however, is justified. God will strike with a vengeance if you call out with a righteous heart.

That said, your best course of action is to get a reading and find out what the best course of action is for you. This reader can also spend time coaching you on how to go about acheving your goals and what prayers are best.

Each reader is different. If you clicked the link I provided for AIRR, I'm sure you read that each reader has different styles of reading, etc. If you're unsure, some readers offer 10 min readings. That service is also listed in their profiles.

This link might help,too.
http://www.luckymojo.com/blackgypsies.html

Ultimately, if you're unsure, just e-mail the rootworker directly.

Good luck!

I've looked at the AIRR site many, many times over the past several months - thought perhaps it was analagous to a doctor visit - the doctors might have different styles and specialties but would also be commonalities across the experiences - all would have stethescopes, prescription pads, etc - will no doubt get a reading from one of AIRR rootworkers in the not distant future. Also assume that when the candle reports arrive they will be illuminating (no pun intended) the situation.

Merrygerry,

I have worked with St. Martha the dominator for various things including break up work among many other things. You can work with her for these types of works. In my own personal case, I worked with St. Martha to get back an ex boyfriend who truly did wrong me, and she definitely heard me on that one. But if you are just trying to break up a marriage because you want this person and want to talk him from his wife...ehhh that debatable. Again i would work with her on your own accord, and see if she is willing to help you. I think you can work with St. Martha to get your target to think about you, or to even be miserable with person while in addition to doing the break up work on your own.
Thank u St. Martha for everything you have done on my behalf.
Thank u St. Elena! I appreciate your great help.
Thank you St. Peter for opening the gates&roads!

Thanks Stars, I appreciate the options - I particularly wondered about having her help with getting him to think of me - have her photo and card on an altar dedicated to that purpose right now and wasn't sure what to do about it - think I'll leave it and, as you suggest, see if she's willing to help. Have also been burning a green vigil candle for her every Tuesday with a petition and will continue that practice.

The person was my significant other for 18 years, so I hope he thinks of me at least occasionally but was hoping to up the volume considerably and yes, perhaps, amplify any misery he may be experiencing in his current situation. Appreciate your help and ideas - I hadn't thought of separating "break up" from being miserable - will add misery to some other work as you suggest.

If you have any other ideas for how to work with her, would love to hear them.

Just by the by, I'm also in sunny southern calif - and was happy that it rained a little yesterday!

Thanks again.

Thank you so much, Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Jude, St. Martha, St. Anthony, and St. Michael. I have been faithfully praying to all of you regarding a job that I have really wanted. I got it. I know all of you have been a powerful presence in my life and help this to materialize. Thank you so much. I will always pay homage to you and keep you in my heart. You've also helped me in restoring my broken relationships. I love all of you.

Peace & Light,

Generally speaking, St Martha is used for controlling and binding a particular man. I wouldn't use her to just attract a new love in general. I have heard from Doreen Virtue that St Catherine is used to find a mate for marriage. Other great saints to use are Virgin of Guadalupe, La Santa Muerte (she is her own system of Magic), Maria Delorosa, La Diosa del Mar (The Lady of the Sea)... the list can go on. If you use St Anne however, she is very flirtatious and probably won't send you a long-lasting relationship (which is what I've heard and also from some experience).

I use St. Martha for almost everything she is awesome. But what I would like to know is if you are using her for love do you use your own picture or the picture of the person you are working on or a picture of you and the person you are working on?

Actually, it's Raphael who is prayed to for to bring a partner.

Here are two traditional Catholic prayers for such:

O Raphael, lead us toward those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us: Raphael, Angel of happy meeting, lead us by the hand toward those we are looking for. May all our movements be guided by your Light and transfigured with your joy. Angel, guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him on whose unveiled Face you are privileged to gaze. Lonely and tired, crushed by the separations and sorrows of life, we feel the need of calling you and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers in the province of joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country. Remember the weak, you who are strong, you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene and bright with the resplendent glory of God. Amen.



St. Raphael, you were sent by God to guide young Tobiah in choosing a good and virtuous spouse. Please help me in this important choice which will affect my whole future. You not only directed Tobiah in finding a wife, but you also gave him guidelines which should be foremost in every Christian marriage: "Pray together before making important decisions." If through prayer we keep God as the "third Partner" in our marriage, we will have the strength and grace we need to always accept and do His will. Amen.

Pray 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, 1 Glory be...

Well it depends on your situation. If you are looking for a particular lover, you can either put your picture and their picture facing yours and put it under the candle, OR you can put just the target's picture under the candle. If you are not looking for a particular lover, I would put your picture under the candle, along with attributes, and characteristics that you would like your lover to have.

You are not bugging me Lol. This is a place to get help and learn. In any case, st anthony, and st martha help to bring a lover back to you, but st martha helps with the domination but she is not all about that. You can go on the forum and read about everyones experiences with these saints . Feel free to PM me if you need any more help.

Which love saint for my situation?

Unread postby ShadowyEmbrace » Thu Jul 01, 2010 12:15 pm

I've gone through the various saints to use for love but for all that are familiar with my posts which one do you feel would best suit my situation and should I say an invocation before going into my petition?

Personally, I feel like you need to not do so many spells. I mean maybe in theory you are not, but from your posts it seems like you are doing quite a few spells at a time. For this situation, I wouldn't do more than 2 or 3 at a time because it can get quite draining. In any case, I would work with St. Anthony for reconciliation, and bringing back a lost love. What other Saints were you looking at?

I always caution people who ask to petition saints, by first asking what they know about Catholic folk-magick.

I am not saying you need to be Catholic to petition a saint, but neither are they neopagan spirits that can be called upon by anyone. They requires a certain respect and protocal that is found within the Catholic tradition. If you are unfamiliar with this tradition, or if you are not willing to work with it then I recommend steering away from working with saints. I say this because there seems to be this sense of saints being nothing more than convenience-store spirits you can call upon when you like.

This isn't aimed at you, ShadowyEmbrace, I am merely saying this--especially after I just saw a youtube post by a young witch who was teaching people on how to call upon St. Expedite and who (wrongly_ claimed that he's actually a deity and not really a saint and brushed off years of Catholic influence.

Now, if you feel like you are familiar with the Catholic folk-magick tradition and that you are respectful of the religious and cultural traditions that give rise to saints then I'd suggest St. Anthony to help draw back a lost love and St. Peter to help open the paths for you.

I've seen that one too and raised my eyebrow at the "deity" remark.

Perhaps an article needs to be written about this. I think people feel like they can work with any everything, and it is safe to do so because lucky mojo sells it, and many other people here work with such saints. I agree that there needs to be a level of respect when working with saints, and like anything else things need to be researched, and a level of understanding needs to be grasped by the person.

Honestly, that same thing NEEDS to go for every magical tradition, not just in hoodoo. There's too much gumball-machine-spirit mentality going around in my opinion. Superficial spirit work leads to superficial results - spend the time getting educated and developing relationships with spirits and watch how much deeper your magic will go.

I'm sorry everyone I didn't mean to come off like the Saints where simply gumball-machine-spirits I have the up most respect for all religions and have always admired Catholic traditions and artwork. I was raised very religious and have great respect I was simply inquiring but it may be best for me to not work with any saints in hoodoo until I'm more comfortable with it.

ShadowyEmbrace, we weren't directing our comments at you specifically - it was just a comment on a modern trend of late in the Western magical communities. If you re-read ConjureMan's post to you, you'll see that. :)

What saints do you use for break up/ separation or anything to get rid of a rival. Or cause fights with groups of people/friends?
What saints do you use for money, more customers and good health?
