As models of virtue and faith, the Christian saints offer comfort and support to those who seek their cousel. Featuring a saint's portrait on every card, the Voices of the Saints oracle is an appropriate spiritual tool for divining guidance from these pinnacles of morality and strength.
Boxed mini-kit includes 78 full-color cards and instruction booklet.
According to St. Paul, any person who accepted Jesus as the Christ was considered a Saint. However, in cultures that had been filled with deities and semi-divine beings, simply having God and the angels wasnt enough. As a result, people who were considered especially spiritual were called "Saints." Eventually, in Catholicism, this became formalized requiring certain characteristics such as performing a miracle. In Europe, the local people were loathe to abandon their Pagan gods and goddesses. In a two-fold attack for domination, Christian authorities denounced the Pagan deities, but when the people wouldnt desert them, Christians recreated them as Saints. As a result [read more]

1. The LWB (actually its black and white) is this company's generic guidebook for Tarot in general. None of the information in the book applies to the cards in this deck.
2. The Latin spelling of each of the names can be misleading. If you google it exactly as it is on the card, the modern name of that Saint will usually come up in the results.
3. Some of my most beloved Saints are missing from the deck. The Saints included are traditionally popular in Italy. Again, Google can introduce these Saints if you're not familiar with them.
3(a). Certain patronages of Saints not included in the deck are definitely covered by other saints in the deck. Also, I had a happy surprise of discovering additional, surprising Patronages associated some Saints with whom I am familiar.
4. You want to work with the Saints it really helps to know their patronage. That's a little tricky to research online, but I found using the string "St (name in full) patron saint of" result in at least a few references to Patronage.
It took me a couple of hours to do the research on each of the Saints, the results were well worth it.
Armed with this information, the deck is now quite useful to me as I Work with the Saints.
For me it was well worth the little extra effort.
