11/1/18 All Saints Day Reading #4 Saint Sebastian and the Holy Confrontation That You Didn't Want But Oh Well Now It's On

Saints and Mystics Reading Cards Saint Sebastian lived during a time when Christians were persecuted so he had to hide his faith.  Basically he was like a police officer who arrested the Christians but then would sneak into the jail and take care of the prisoner in secret.  Eventually he was discovered, as everything does tend to come to the light, and he was tied to a tree and shot full of arrows.  They shot so many arrows into him that they assumed he was dead because he should have been dead however a woman came to give him a burial and he was still alive.  After he recovered he went and confronted the leader who had tried to have him executed.  He told the leader some truth about his wickedness and the leader had Saint Sebastian clubbed to death and thrown into a sewer.  Another woman came and found his body and buried him. This card brings us to the end of the 4 card series and it really ends with a bang.  In card 1 we have Saint Jude lending us the energy and strength

11/1/18 All Saints Day Card #1: Saint Jude: If You Needed An Anchor It Is Coming

Saints and Mystics Reading Cards Today is All Saints Day so lets pull some saint cards. I personally love the saints. Saint Jude is the patron saint of the hopeless and he was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus of Nazareth.  The key words on his card are "Saving Grace" and I know that when people feel like they really need a miracle (because things have been getting worse in spite of all the prayers and good karma) that they turn to Saint Jude.   I suppose the thing to remember is that in order to become spiritually refined the human experience must go through some dark bullshit.  The saints don't generally take the pain, the lesson, or the bullshit away and in their human lives they went through suffering more then the average person.  They can bring blessings that will help us to endure, be patient, find forgiveness, and offer charity even when we are going through our own poverty.  And then every once in a while you do get some kind of a burden being
