Today’s ‘All Saint’s Day’ honors the nearly 10,000 saints canonized by the Christian church to date. All Saint’s Day was originally celebrated in May but was moved to early November to offset the perceived paganism associated with Halloween and tomorrow’s ‘Day of the Dead.’ Regardless of when you celebrate them, asking the saints for their intercession is always a good thing. Of late, I have found myself invoking Saint Basil, patron saint of Causes and Justice. Saint Basil also assists in righting wrongs, especially where legal cases are concerned. The specific ritual assigned to invoke Saint Basil says to light three red candles before asking to bring the right remedy to the concerning situation. After blowing out the candles and when your prayers have been positively answered, you must then thank Saint Basil for his attention and assistance. Can I get an amen?
