Date: Sun, 7 Jul 2002 23:53:39 -0500 From: "E Bryant Holman" (firstname.lastname@example.org) Subject: An Effective Amparo No curandero would ever work without an amparo. If you cure a person who has been "mal puesto", the spell, after leaving the body of the victim, will just go right into you, and you will either become sick, in grave danger, or you will just have aches, pains, and a headache. In any event, it is not worth it, so don't even try! The best amparo is one that comes naturally, and that is the fact of being "cruzado": having a very clearly marked cross on the palm of ones right hand. After that, an effective amparo is one that is given to you by a powerful curandero, who would have to be more powerful than any brujas or hechiceros against whom one might cross swords, if one were to remove spells from "patients", or if one were to go about conjuring up spirits and "opening the windows" to the spirit world. Barring either of these circumstances, the most effective sources of amparo are: 1. The Santa Cruz 2. San Miguel Arcangel 3. San Cipriano del Campo Mayor The most effective use of the Santa Cruz is the practice known as "persinarse". There are several sayings, which are repeated to give force to this practice, and then there is ritual itself. One crosses oneself, in a motion that the staff goes from up to down, symbolizing the planting of the cross on Golgotha, over the bones of Adam, and the crossbar is from right to left "porque el demonio siempre se arrima por la mano izquierda" - to show that one moves from the evil to the good. First one crosses oneself on the forehead, across the eyes, with the words "Por la señal de la Santa Cruz" (Through the sign of the Holy Cross) Next one crosses oneself over the mouth with the words "De nuestros enemigos" (From our enemies) Next one crosses ones heart with the words "Líbranos Señor Diós nuestro" (Free us Lord our God) Then one crosses oneself from the forehead to the midsection and from shoulder to shoulder with "En el nombre del Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo, Amén" (In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Amen), and on the last syllable of "Amén" one touches ones heart, and then kisses ones hand, which is held in the sign of the Santa Cruz. The sign in which one holds ones hand when one does this is thus: The thumb is upright and the forefinger bent, with the thumb in front as you look at it, forming a cross. The three remaining fingers are held straight up symbolizing the three nails. You must only use your right hand. Here are the saying that are associated with the "persinarse": "Cruz Santa Cruz Fuerte Te convido En la hora De la Muerte Con los clavos Me persino Y me abrazo de la Cruz En mi cabecera pongo A mi verdadero Jesús" "Holy Cross, Mighty Cross I invite you in the hour of my death With the nails I cross myself I embrace the Cross And on my bedstead I place my True Jesus." ****************************************** "¿Porqué nos persinamos tantas veces? Porque endondequiera nos persiguen nuestros enemigos. ¿La Cruz tiene virtúd para librarnos de nuestros enemigos? Sí. Tiene virtúd, por haber muerto Cristo en ella. La primera en la frente Para que nos libre Diós De los malos piensamentos. La segunda en la boca Para que nos libre Diós De las malas palabras. La terceraa en el pecho Para que nos libre Diós De las malas obras." "Why do we cross ourselves so many times? Because wherever we are, our enemies follow. Does the Holy Cross have virtue to free us from our enemies? Yes. It does have [that] virtue, through Christ having died on it. The first on the forehead So that God might free us Of evil thoughts. The second on the mouth So that God might free us Of evil words. The third on the breast So that God might free us Of evil works." *************** The prayer of San Miguel Archangel: "San Miguel Arcángel, defiéndenos en la batalla. Sé nuestro amparo contra la perversidad y asechanzas del demonio. Reprímale Dios, pedimos suplicantes, y tú Príncipe de la Milicia Celestial, arroja al infierno con el divino poder a Satanás y a los otros espíritus malignos que andan dispersos por el mundo para la perdición de las almas. Amén." "Saint Michael Archangel defend us in the battle Be our protection against perverstiy and sorcery of the devil. Repress him, God, we supplicants pray Thee, and you Prince of the Celestial Militia, fling into hell with your divine power Satan and the other milign spirits who go about dispersed in the world for the loss of souls. Amen" In order to have amparo either before one opens the "window to the spirit world", or if one fears one has been hexed, or if one is attempting a limpia and fears that the spirits that are cast out will go into oneself, one prays this prayer, with the following acts: 1. Take a picture of oneself, or the person who will receive the amparo, and place it between to images of San Miguel - one image above and one below. If no picture is available, write the person's name on a pice of paper and subsitute it for the picture. 2. Place a red candle (preferably an actual votive candle with San Miguel's image on it) over the images and light it, and pray the prayer. ************************** The use of San Cipriano as an amparo. 1. Place and image of San Cipriano over the name or photograph of the person who will have the amparo. 2. Light a purple candle, preferably a votive candle of the saint himself. Pray the complete set of prayers including the three creeds each time you perform any cures, limpias, or spells, especially if you are working with dangerous spirits, like the Santisima Muerte, for instance. The complete set of prayers to The Glorious Martyr San Cipriano Translated from the Spanish by Bryant "Eduardo" Holman, Special advocate of the those who are bewitched or are in danger of being so. Also for travelers, those in prison, and especially for women in childbirth. In the name of the All Powerful God, Creator of heaven and earth, of all the saints, martyrs, and confessors, of all of the Virgins and the blessed, of all of the angels and seraphins and so many powers and denominations that serve and praise the Divine Majesty on His high throne, I supplicate such a sweet Lord, that to me these may be conceited so many virtues that this prayer contains, so that the demon is buried away from me in the hour of my death, through the intercession of San Pedro and San Pablo, through the obedience of Isaac and Jacob, through Zacarías and that of Jacob, through the supplications of those who keep vigils in the praise of the Lord, through the sacrifices and the martyrdoms of all the Holy Apostles and through the bush that Moises saw burning, even though the fire consumed it not, that I may see myself free from all the harm of ghosts and diabolical visions, the same to many who may pray, burden or assign to other persons this prayer, as was promised to your clarified martyr San Cipriano, that those who occur to him may be see themselves free of sudden death, of lightning, of earthquakes, of fire and of calumnies, of evil tongues, of evil thought of visible enemies and if some person attempts some evil against them, that person will become shamed and remorseful and publicly declare his guilt. Amen PRAYER Omnipotent and eternal God, I supplicate thee through the humanity and poverty with which thou wert born, through the painful circumcision, through the copious perspiration of blood that thou hadst in the Prayer in the Garden, through thy most holy passion and through the intercession of San Miguel, San Gabriel, San Juan Bautista, Santo Domingo, San Sebastián, San Fabián, San Marcos, San Lucas and all of the saints in the court of heaven, that I may see myself free of all harm and danger of relapse especially through the intercession of my beloved and blessed martyr San Cipriano, that thou mayest concede to me as much as this devotion asks of thee. Amen. Here one prays three Credos to the Santísima Trinidad and then the following. PRAYER TO THE SAINT Most glorious bishop and martyr San Cipriano, I supplicate thee through thy most bitter martyrdom and through the glory that thou dost enjoy in the company of all of those whom like thee have obtained the most happy and deserving crown of martyrdom, that thou mayest free me from the sorcery and enchantments of the infernal dragon, from sudden death, from lightning and earthquake, from evil neighbors, from dangerous highways, from robbers, from prisons, evil tongues, from false testimonies and in the end, that placed at thy feet and covered with thy vestments I may be free from all of my enemies both visible and invisible and that covered with the cloak of Magdalena that I attain a pardon such as that of that blessed saint that my soul be purified and my luck be happy. Amen. PRAISES TO THE SAINT Bishop San Cipriano Of the greatest field Free us from all sorcery And of all sorcerers. So immense is thy power That the Lord conceded to thee That in the hands of the sorcerer None can even compare. Thou hast promised to succor Him who is in need Thou dost heal the enchanted. With the greatest brevity Thou givest liberty To the unhappy prisoner. Of all that which is afflicted Thou art the celestial consolation Thou art the stairway to heaven Of that which to thee has occurred. Thou dost give protection to the invalid Thou givest company to the traveler And thou art a sure consolation Top him that acclaims thee constant. At all hours and instants Against lightning and earthquakes Thy avocation is sweet, Who has thy devotion Will never be seen in prisons. Thou dost bury the temptations Which the demon presents to thee Whom thy prodigies don't decrease Thou dost free from evil tongue And from false testimonies. Therefor he who is in prayer Might be carried in thy company, Thou hast promised that he would be Free from persecution. The woman who is in the affliction Of her childbirth will pray to thee And if with faith she invoke thee Thou wilt mitigate her longing, Thou dost protect through thy virtue All who invoke thee. The persons who had this prayer and wished to reach as many virtues as they have conceited, should pray three Credos to the Santísima Trinidad, and on Sundays a Padre Nuestro to San Cipriano through the intention of those who may have been hexed or in danger of being so, and also for those travelers, prisoners and women who will give birth. The woman who is in labor will go without danger if she has lived in the grace of God, since the Lord concedes to us as many as he finds convenient, always if we labor under the Holy Law. Bryant
