Reviewing photos from tonight's new Black Madonna La Roja statue blessing and dedication. She blessed me with her presence in accepting her new home and it was strongly felt.
My deepest thanks to my Santa Muerte and to @mi_nina_flakita for this remarkable statue
Bendice mi día, bendice mi suerte
Tráeme alegría también a mi gente
No me abandones, cuidarme siempre
Aleja lo malo que no se me acerque
Y mis enemigos que de mi se alejen
Que hoy en este día el éxito sea latente
Y la prosperidad me acompañe siempre
Escucha mi ruego santísima muerte
Que yo cada día lo haré nuevamente.
Amén. ☪️🗡️✨🖤⚡ #holydeath#mexico#santamuerte#niñablanca#cult#santisimamuerte
When considering Halloween, we must consider the way that a healthy culture teaches its children about death and the most important things...
"With our renewed understanding of the gift of the body through John Paul II's Theology of the Body, it is a wonder that we still tolerate the gruesome depictions of the flesh on Halloween night. Personhood is lost. Morphed into a mass of bleeding flesh and parade of hideous creatures. If we could put a true face on our sinfulness, perhaps this is what we would see. But the Truth, Christ Himself, is also within us, and demands sacred respect.
St. John Bosco once called the Christian cemetery "an eloquent sign for those who enter in faith and prayer." Not creepy or frightening but "an eloquent sign." How beautiful! Unfortunately, it seems to be the human condition (concupiscence) to make ugly what God has made beautiful and to lose sensitivity to the joy of the eternal."
