Readers Questions | Public Publishing of Thanks for Results


I am a student of ritual studies (permit me to use that) in one of the Nigerian Universities. We were given an assignment but I don’t seem to understand the question very well. The question goes thus:- put three candles in the lowest place you have at home, inside a bowl with salt all around the candles. Ask for three wishes to your guardian angels, ST. PETER, ST. PAUL, ST. THOMAS.  Ask one wish for business, one wish for love and one impossible wish.  Publish this spell on the third day (after you requested the wishes) and see what happens on the fourth day.

What I don’t really understand in the question above is the “publish this spell on the third day (after you requested the wishes)”. What am I to publish and how am I to do that I don’t just understand. I’ll be very very grateful for your reply
because I’ll be expecting it real bad.

Thanks & Regards



Thanks for the question.

The old adage of “Publishing after XX Days” is a form of “payment” or “dues” believed to be part of the ritual but in actuality a form of “advertisement” or “spreading the word”. It can also be viewed as a form of ‘tithe’ because you are using your money to spread the ‘word’ of that particular Saints works and prayers. In the United States and other places around the world, it is common for those who light candles and set petitions to Saint Jude (San Judas Tadeo) to also publish a word of thanks in the “Personals” section of their local newspaper. Now that most of the news has gone onto the Internet, I am not sure that this practice occurs with the frequency that it once did.

Another way to let others know about a particular Saints’  mystical powers and the intercession that they did for you is to also pass out Prayer Cards with the image of the Saint, usually with an associated prayer on the back. These can be found in Catholic bookstores and supply houses on the Internet.

For your particular situation, I would say something like this:

“Thank you my Guardian Angels and St. Peter, St. Paul and St. Thomas for blessings received of my petitions and candles and may you continuously hold me close and protect me from Evil and grant my humble and sincere prayers of petition.”

Good Luck and let us know your results!
