Santa Muerte, My Beautiful Lady.

I recently discovered my faith in Santa Muerte awhile ago, turns out ive always believed in her, just did not have a name for her until now. I am just recently starting to get to know my new faith and its opened me up and made me whole again! I am looking for others to help me grow (in a good way) and looking for others who share similar interests at heart.

Don't know if you are still into this but, came across this in TIME magazine while getting ideas on how to decorate for Halloween thought you might enjoy.

yeah I am still into her, that is my religion. Haha I happened across the article of the Vatican versus Santa Muerte, like it was some western showdown or something. lol. I would say its funny if it wasn't so pathetic. I don't get it they had the inquisitions and the Salem witch trials, you would think we moved onto to judging others in the name of religion but I guess not.

I would love to read the whole article, if you have a link!

Monotheistic religions tend to be very judgmental. If you get a chance you might enjoy taking world religions and history of religions in college. I really enjoyed them.

I noticed that. I wonder why that is about monotheistic religions.. its so odd to me to be so judgmental being as no one has died and came back to life fully to tell us. I mean yeah sure there have been near death experiences and I don't doubt that these people tell the truth but I am talking about people who have passed away for an hour or more or even a couple days to ever come back to know for sure.

Just like them, cheap ol' Catholic Church that withdraws sainthoods of the already canonized. They even undid Jude, the patron saint of lost causes, which then makes him a lost cause among saints. Ironyyyy!

Yeah I dont know why they do that it doesnt make sense to me, its like their scared of something for some reason. This is precisely why I believe in santa muerte is because she is not perfect and just as tempremental as a human being, in my weird state of mind thats ok where as every religion makes their god perfect, if its one thing in life to be wary of its the too good to be true scams :>

good thinking (that last part about too good...)

Saint Death?

Not criticizing, I have just never heard of that as a faith. So please enlighten me if you get the opportunity.

Its a faith to me, just because the catholic church doesnt recognize her as a saint doesnt mean she is not one, the church said so themselves that a person who is not perfect cant be recognized as a saint, this doesnot make sense to me as no one by nature is not perfect. And they call it a cult cos its not a mainstream belief. I choose her as my faith.

@smed its not really about death per-say its about having faith in those that have gone before you. if you ever go into a mexican barrio on the day of the dead you would understand ...

@gypsy
Exactly! You got it right.
