Catholic Conjure: An Interview With Michael Therese McQueen of Sacred Eyes Tarot
I had never heard of Catholic Conjure or Catholic Folk Magic until I met Michael Therese McQueen of Sacred Eyes Tarot. My eyes were opened. The conversation was riveting, with Michael recounting his religious background, including the Southern Baptist tradition, Catholicism and, somewhat surprisingly, Shintoism.
On top of the rich tapestry of ritual background he wove during his years in Catholic school, he's developed deep and powerful relationships with the Saints, who aid him in his work as a Catholic Folk Magic practitioner, particularly from his Patron, Saint Lucy, whom his Tarot practice is named for.
Micheal teaches how to develop relationships with the Saints as powerful magickal allies, not unlike Orishas or ancestors or any deities you may work with. He also reminds us that Saints were once human, so they understand us well.
The interview is in 2 parts if you'd like to catch the whole convo (well worth it!).
Part 2 of the interview is on the Christian Witches YouTube Channel (subscribe, like and share while you're there!) Watch and keep an eye out in the video for the beautiful shadow boxes he creates honoring the Saints:
After the eye-opening conversation with Michael, you just may be inspired to start developing relationships with the Saints for a powerful amp UP to your magic!
