Man that is so weird that I want one for my study.

I'll take it with me when I travel to Jhb in SA and leave it on the dashboard of the car. Friend put a skull in his car, never locked it and the car was never touched or stolen.

Whole Muerte thing reminds me of this spectacularly good novel...

IMHO, worshipping any saint is a bit wierd, and this one is no wierder than others.

I almost totally agree with you, but I'd make an exception for San Miguel.

The church agrees with you OFSO. I dug out my old catechism and find that article 184 reads

Q. Is it forbidden to give divine honour and worship to the angels and the saints?

A. It is forbidden to give divine honour or worship to the angels and the saints, for this belongs to God alone.

You can pray to saints to intercede on your behalf but not worship them. That said I'm still waiting for St Anthony to come up with my reading glasses, this old pair is nowhere near as good as the ones I lost :*
