Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I want to share a bit of the story behind The Magical Power of the Saints by Reverend Ray T. Malbrough.

When the world was Pagan, people presented offerings to the deities along with petitions and prayers. Often this involved a bonfire or flame from an oil lamp or candle. Christianity brought its own version of the deities, but some systems such as Santeria, Condomble, and Voudun refused to abandon the old gods and goddesses. They worshiped them under the guise of the Christian saints.

The saints took on the characteristics of the Pagan deities with special days of the week, candles of a particular color, and rulership over certain problems and occupations. The belief in a saint's ability to intercede on the petitioner's behalf continues among many people to this day. Now you can find out how to use ancient techniques to call on the saints for help when you read The Magical Power of the Saints.

In The Magical Power of the Saints you will find a guide to seventy-four saints and their attributes. Learn how to evoke them for practical help in your life through prayer, candle burning, and divination. Whether you want more peace, a new love, a better job, more money, or any of several dozen more goals, you can start by getting The Magical Power of the Saints.

About the Author

Ray T. Malbrough was born in New Orleans and was raised in the "Pays des Cajuns" Region of southeastern Louisiana. He learned the basics of hoodoo in his early teens with the permission and encouragement of his mother. At age 19, he started working in a New Orleans tearoom as a reader/advisor, and has since earned a good reputation as a Hoodoo worker all over the region surrounding his hometown of Houma. He is a 1982 graduate of the Seax-Wica Seminary founded and directed by Dr. Raymond Buckland. The author is active in the parapsychology Association in Thibodeaux, Louisiana. Today, Ray is a full time reader/advisor and hoodoo worker in his home in Houma.

This book is filled with very useful information.

This book is good, but to be honest with you, most of the information in this book has been passed down to me, by my mother and grandparent.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a how-to guide for calling upon the saints as your personal allies, this book just might start you in the right direction. The author--whose background includes Santeria, Wicca, spiritualism, voodoo and shamanism--introduces you to 74 different saints, and explains how you can reach them through ritual. The book opens with a brief overview of saints and deities, including capsule identification of each saint--such as name, feast day, weekday, emblem, color of candle, areas of protection and association. In addition, an image of the saint is provided. Following this are general discussions of the power of rituals and magic, and how these can assist you. However, the majority of the book is given over to providing you with candle rituals and incantations for 57 different situations,such as improving your marriage, attracting fortune, improving your business, calming anger, conquering infidelity, obtaining spiritual strength, etc. Each of the rituals includes appropriate references to the Psalms of the Bible, and other key steps for success. Also included are a bibliography for further reading, and an index.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book by Malbrough. This is the better of the three available on the market, though it is somewhat new agey like his other books. It seems like the author got started writing a book on working with the saints but either got sidetracked or ran out of information. The first part of the book has pictures of the saints with brief descriptions of them, but many of the commonly used saints are not present. The information given is brief. The second chapter discusses divination appearing throughout the bible. Its not bad. There is a section them on various brand candles. These candles are very common in hoodoo but many of them have nothing to do with the saints. The author presents some commentary on his own initiation as a diviner, and then some reproductions of certficates he obtained. This is part of the reason I think he ran out of information. It might have been that he had a contract for a certain number of pages and used some things as filler, though thats just a guess. In particular the author includes a certificate he earned in "Bucklands Seax Wicca" school. This has NOTHING to do with working the saints and deffinently alludes to the authors new age style. All in all its not a terriblebook for the price but I wouldn't buy it new if used copies are available for sale.

Format: Paperback
When I 1st bought this book I tried just about all of the rituals inside it! But to my surprise they didnt seem to work for me. But I will say this, some of the candles did work well alone rather than in the combination that they actually give you. Example, To be lucky in Love's ritual consist of to may unneccesary candles for me, I obtain great results for clients and myself by just using the chuparosa red and green candle with strong love oil on it and a pink adam and eve with adam and eve oil, thats it the other stuff mentioned for it is unneccesary! But the one I love in the whole book and I carry it out to the letter is the ritual "TO OBTAIN DAILY BLESSINGS". Its an offering to pay homage to all the saints so that they may shower you with blessings from the divine. It works AMAZINGLY!!! You can tell when I forget to do it sometimes, cause things dont go so well with me and in my household. You have to do it on the 1st Friday of the month and sometimes I do forget, but for the most part I try not to miss at all!! But this book, just for the one ritual, is well worth the price and more! YOU'LL RECEIVE AND ABUNDANCE OF BLESSINGS YOU NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE!

Format: Paperback
Although as an Omo Ochun, I embrace the Future of my Orisha, but I can not let go of the past of my Santos. In my home both the Orisha / Supreme Guardian Angels as well as the Santos are well respected. This book is good, but to be honest with you, most of the information in this book has been passed down to me, by my mother and grandparent. None of the information was new to me. I read the book in less than a few hours, as it was just a brush down of everything passed down to me.
But to those who's parents are not Curanderas, or Santeras, this will be a neat book. You will finally get an understanding of what those fancy candles sold in Botanicas and what they are used for. The Section of the Saints is nice, but you can find better info in one of those Catholic Saints Dictionaries.
The Psalms of the Bibles, section is okay. The Psalms are very powerful prayers and invocation. This is just a quick reference; there are better books out there on the subject.
This book is okay, if you do not know the information, I guess this book would be helpful, if not, save your [money]

The Magical Power of the Saints has helped my new employees learn about the spiritual supplies sold in Botanicas. Our customers are always coming into the store asking for advice. Our employees must know the products we sell and what they are used for. The Magical Power of the Saints has served as a wonderful reference guide. Why wasn't a book like this written years ealier???

For sometime I have been searching for the most comprehensive guide in working with the saints in the folk magic tradition of Hoodoo, and this is the quite easily the best available today. I feel that for that reason, and also for the wealth of information in reading vigil candles and the Psalms of the Bible, that this book must have a 5 star rating: it is the complete package for any armchair magical anthropologist or active practitioner. So, if you are debating what you should add to your library, be sure to purchase this wonderful tome for your collection, you will be certainly glad you did!
