This is a forum for the use and knowledge of Lucky Mojo products. Lucky Mojo does not make products relating to St. James. In your case, I would use some All Saints products (to petition all the saints including St. James) or I would petition Dr. Jose Gregario Hernandez, who is a folk saint and healer from Venezuela.

You can also post a prayer for healing at the Crystal Silence League. Hundreds of people around the world will pray for you for free.

Good luck,

St. James the Greater ( the Apostle ) is the Patron saint of Arthritis. When he was led with a rope around his neck for execution, a man crippled with arthritis begged for the Apostle to heal him ... which he did. His relics are said to be in Spain where early Christians took them according to legend. His Feast Day is July 25. Shells seem to be one of his better known symbols.

In addition to the All Saints oil suggested, 7-11 Holy Oil is another good choice for working with many Saints. With regards to arthritis and joint problems, another good saint to work with for arthritis is St-Alphonsus Liguori:

St Alphonsus Liguori was born in near Naples in the 18th century and was the founder of the Redemptorist order, he is known as ''The Arthritic Saint''. He was born to a wealthy family and was trained and worked as a lawyer. Following a bitter and humiliating defeat in court, he turned to the religious life and was trained as a priest. Down to earth and pragmatic in his preaching, he was a well-liked and accessible in his works. A particularly bad bout of rheumatic fever left him partially paralysed and he had to be fed through a tube for the last two decades of his life. He was a prolific writer although he only wrote later in life, and his intercession has been known to heal the sick and help one more productively bear chronic ills. His feast day is August 1st.

All Saints oil on brown candles and/or Vigil lights can be used to petition him. A standard way of working with any Saint is also to say a Novena in petition to them. St Alphonsus Liguori is even responsible for establishing the ''Rules for Proper Observance of Novenas'' and published a Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1758 that is still in use today. A particularly beautiful prayer, excerpted from the book: “Novena: the Power of Prayer” by Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua, that you can use for St Alphonsus Liguori is the following:

''Glorious Saint Alphonsus, loving father of the poor and sick, all your life you devoted yourself with a charity really heroic to lightening their spiritual and bodily miseries. Full of confidence in your tender pity for the sick, since you yourself have patiently borne the cross of illness, I come to you for help in my present need.

(Mention your request).

Loving father of the suffering, Saint Alphonsus, whom I invoke as the Arthritis Saint, since you suffered from this disease in your lifetime, look with compassion upon me in my suffering. Beg god to give me good health. If it is not God’s will to cure me, then give me strength to bear my cross patiently and to offer my sufferings in union with my crucified Savior and his Mother of Sorrows, for the glory of God and the salvation of souls, in reparation for my sins and those of others, for the needs of this troubled world, and for the souls in purgatory.

(Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be).

Saint Alphonsus, patron of the sick, pray for me. Amen.

Say this novena nine times in a row for nine days in a row.''

Blessings and best of luck to you.

Hi, I'm new. I don't really know who to ask about this. Someone at Studio Arcanis forums recommended Lucky Mojo so here I am. Please move this to the right place if it's here incorrectly.

I'm Catholic and interested in folk Catholicism. I went to a botanica near me to purchase some candles. I try to follow all the teachings of the Church as best I can, and I know some of what is sold in botanicas is syncretic and thus incompatible with Church teaching. So I tried to use discernment and buy what I knew.

The two shopkeepers spoke no English, and I speak no Spanish except a few words, so we couldn't talk.

I found the St Expedite and Guardian Angel candles, but couldn't find the Powerful Hand of God. I looked quizzically at one shopkeeper and said 'Mano?' She said 'Ah, Mano Poderosa.' The second shopkeeper looked and couldn't find one. The first shopkeeper said 'No Mano Poderosa.' Then the second shopkeeper picked a pink candle (no image) off the shelf and handed it to me and the first shopkeeper said 'Mano Poderosa.' I figured they were recommending the pink candle for the Powerful Hand devotion. Is that right?

Then as I was buying the candles the first shopkeeper looked at me, pointed at her head/hat, and said 'Santo Santiago,' repeating it a few times. I didn't understand. The second shopkeeper got a candle from the shelf and handed it to me: 'Santo Santiago,' a white candle with an image of St Santiago in a hat, with a sword, on horseback trampling another man. I didn't know anything about this or why they were apparently recommending it to me, so at first I said 'No.' Then after I bought my candles I changed my mind, went to the shelf, and got the St Santiago candle and bought it. What is this all about? Any guesses, based on my other purchases, why they may have recommended it?

As I was cashing out the second time, the first shopkeeper pointed at me, folder her hands and closed her eyes as if in prayer, pointed at herself, and smiled, and I understood I should pray for her.

Greetings Beam 88,

Welcome to the Lucky Mojo forum community. We are so happy that you found us and grateful to the person who recommended us. When you get a moment. Please go to the new members forum and make sure to post a formal intro and tell us all about yourself. We'd love to hear from you there.

I have moved your post to a more appropriate thread for your inquiry. I must ask of you to please not create new posts as all the forum has been strategically organized to cover just about every question you can possibly think of as it pertains to Lucky Mojo, out products, and what is able to be done with Rootwork.

I refer to myself as a Folk Catholic although I'm sure a more appropriate term for me is a Catholiphile. At one point -prior to my and maybe even my GRANDmother's conception - my family was a family of Catholics and it appears that a love, intrigue, and infatuation with the ritualistic components of the religion has been handed down to me.

St Santiago is the St James the Apostle and so-called first to be Martyred. He is also the patron saint of arthritis, rheumatism, vets, blacksmiths, tanners, and laborers alike. I'm not sure what significance he would have to you unless that in some way resonates with you.

Unfortunately, here isn't the appropriate place to go to in depth into this discussion. We are happy to help answer generalized inquiries but bear in mind that the forum exists primarily to aid and educate our many customers on how to use magic specifically with the products Lucky Mojo sells.

While we do no carry St James (Santiago) products please feel free to poke around at the many candles we do have which include various saints candles and angelic candles. I have also posted a link for all the saints and their areas guardianship.

Good luck.
