Santa Muerte – as cited by readersandrootworkers.org
Santisima Muerte, also known as Santa Muerte or Holy Death is a prominent spirit venerated in Mexican folk-Catholicism.
She is believed to be a modern form of the ancient Aztec death-goddess, and is sometimes said by contemporary practitioners to be the sister of the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe.
She may be called upon by hoodoo rootworkers who have been influenced by Latino spiritual workers, especially those from Mexico, where she is very popular among Spiritists or Espiritismos.
While she has always had a strong following, in recent years her worship has received public attention. Being the Lady of Death, there is no spirit more fair and accepting than she so she has become patron of a variety of people from taxi drivers and prostitutes, to those trying to avoid the law, like drug-dealers, and those who enforce the law, like police officers.
Many devotees of this folk saint recommend that she be called on in conjunction with a Catholic church saint for safety’s sake; Saint Cyprian, also known as San Cipriano, is a popular choice to accompany Santisima Muerte and calm her wild energies
