Burning to Petition the Female Saints
By Samantha Stevens
Here they are, our Ladies of Mercy and
Divine Benevolence. Petitioning the Saints for Special Favours has been a
big subject in the chat rooms lately, so in the spirit of Christmas and
the Goddess energies associated with these martyrs and popularized pagan
deities, I have compiled a list that tells you how to use candle burning
to request favours.
When you ask the Catholic Saints for help,
it is common to write your request on a piece of paper and place it on the
appropriately coloured candle. If a totem animal, emblem or object is
suggested, you can also place that item, or a picture of that item on her
altar as well. If you can find a picture of the Saint in a religious store
and place it on the altar that is even better.

dishonesty in a relationship (find out the truth about someone). Her
animal is the lamb.

way evil, to protect your relationship from rivals, to protect yourself
