Santa Muerte is the Mexican folk saint of life and death. Many people start to work with her by offering her a glass of cool water, a white candle and praying her rosary.

For those that wish to do her service at home, here is a step by step process to pray the rosary of Santisima Muerte

Introductory Prayers With the image of Santisima Muerte on the rosary in our hand hold it upto your head and make a cross on your forehead. Say:

Sign of the Cross By the sign of the holy cross of our enemies, deliver us oh Lord our God through the intercession of our beloved mother Santisima Muerte.

Make the sign of the cross while praying: In the name the Father, of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Most Holy Mother Santisima Muerte, defend us from our enemies, and help us now and at the hour of our death. Amen

Then pray the creed:

Creed I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
