Candle Burning to Petition the Male Saints
by: Sam Stevens
Last NAN I explained how to petition the female Saints with special requests. This time around I’ll provide some instruction on how to ask to be put in the cosmic care of the Male Saints . These are very ancient pagan rituals, which have been popularized by the Christian Church. The basic methodology is to put your request under the appropriately coloured candle on the suggested day of the week along with an image of the Saint (which you can often find on the Internet) and/or a symbol or emblem that represents the Saint.
Saint Anthony of Padua
On a Tuesday burn a brown candle for special requests, a green candle for financial help or an orange candle to find a husband. St. Anthony’s is a wonderworker when it comes to finding lost articles, improving the memory and bringing back a strayed lover. His emblem is the lily.
