Please join me Sunday, April 5th at 1pm pacific in performing a devotional rosary to La Santisima Muerte. This event will be done entirely online, using the Zoom app. Free registration at https://zoom.us/ is required for full video capabilities, or you can phone in for audio only without registration. I will be opening the virtual meeting right at 1pm and will begin the devotions promptly at 1:15pm
You do not need to be a devotee of Santa Muerte or have previous experience to attend. Simply bring an open mind and a desire to engage in this sacred ceremony. Please do bring use a physical rosary if you have one. If you don’t have a rosary, try to find 10 small objects to use as counters for the decade prayers. This will help you to keep track of where we are.
If you are not familiar with either Santa Muerte or how Rosaries are performed be sure to arrive on time! The first 15 minutes will be an introduction to the ceremony. The rosary itself will last 30-45minutes.

Santa Muerte is the Mexican folk saint of death. In Catholic cultures a folk saint is a figure that is recognized by the people, but not sanctified by the Church, as having the power to aid the living. Santa Muerte is a particularly powerful folk saint believed to have dominion over death and to have the ability to aid those who petition her in just about every aspect of their lives. She is most often seen as an all accepting mother figure with a playful side. Her accepting nature has made her much beloved of the marginalized and disenfranchised under classes. She is a figure with whom one can celebrate the good times, commiserate in the bad, and take action to better one’s life.
Santa Muerte’s devotional practice is a combination of folk Catholicism, Curanderismo, and indigenous Mexican traditions. The Rosary we will be performing is a modified version of the Santa Muerte Rosary taught by Doña Concha. You can find her information and classes at http://curiouscurandera.com/ .
