Saints: Healers and Helpers

Saints

Catholic Saints

The healing power of saints has existed for two millennia and is still a time honored tradition today. Saints are not worshiped but rather are looked at as those who can interceded on our behalf because of their own faithfulness. In the same way one might ask a friend or relative to pray or light a candle for them, many people of all religious backgrounds turn to saints and angels for help and divine guidance.  Doreen Virtue, author and creator of Saints and Angels Oracle Cards, explains  that, “Since Christianity’s roots are found in more ancient belief systems of Judaism and  pantheism, I strongly believe that these… will benefit people of every religious and spiritual background. I’ve found the saints to be angelic, loving and powerful allies to anyone who calls on them, regardless of that person’s faith.”

Often times saints are designated as a patron saint of a particular cause or profession, or invoked against a specific illness or harm. It is customary to carry medallions, place statues or burn incense for the saints that one prays with for intercession. For example, many people in real estate are familiar with St. Joseph, the patron saint of homes. Burying a St. Joseph statue in the yard is a fast way to sell a home! (We have St. Joseph Home Seller Kits for only $5.95!)

by Angela

Whether you’re moving into a new apartment, or making an old house feel more like home, ritual blessings are perfect for any time of year, for any environment. It is easy to forget that our homes need cleansing as much as our bodies do. Without proper cleansing, our homes can collect stagnant and negative energy. This article offers simple tools and tips for blessing and cleansing your living environment. You may add your own affirmations or spiritual tools for more specific needs, or intense situations (such as hauntings, or spell-breaking).
