SAN SIMON (MAXIMON)
"PATRON SAINT OF ALL WHO LOVE DRINKING, SMOKING AND WOMANIZING."
Originally from Guatemala, San Simón He is considered the Spanish interpretation of the legend of a Mayan shaman named Maximón.
Legend has it that Maximón was said to be a Catholic priest who was excommunicated for his promiscuous ways. The village fishermen traveled frequently for trade and enlisted Maximón to protect the virtue of the wives they left behind. It backfired. Instead, Maximón is said to have disguised himself as a loved one so he could have sex indiscriminately. San Simón exists in something of a moral grey area, which makes him popular with those living on the wrong side of the law.
Oh! Powerful Saint Simon. Help me
with all of my actions and with any dangers the may arise.
That I may need assistance.
If you help me in matter of love you will draw
the one I love closer to me.
If it is business, that I will be successful.
If it be enemies that you will help me
to overcome them, and to keep
hidden problems away from me.
I offer you your cigar, your tortilla,
your liquor and your candles.
So in return you will keep me safe
from any danger i may come across.
(Concentrate on your desires)
