In response to recent acts of aggression from religious rivals, Mexico’s top Santa Muerte temple head, Enriqueta Vargas of Tultitlan, spoke exclusively to Skeleton Saint about her role in the cult of Saint Death and her intention “to cleanse” the cult of what she regards as profiteers and charlatans….
Let me make it very clear that the position in which “Santa Muerte International” currently finds itself is due to work, effort, love and struggle. I have never stepped on anyone in order to climb to the top of the cult, and I’ll clarify that it’s called “Santa Muerte International” because it’s known in almost all the world, and not because I’m making it up. People have come as far away as Japan to interview me. If my Saint and my son open doors for me and have sent their emissaries to take care of me and help me it’s because I don’t profit from or denigrate her image.
Tonight some kind of sorcerer was sent to my home to do some supposed ritual. And you know what? To the point that I take pride with my Santa Muerte for being the mother of “the Panther,” the only Santa Muertero in Mexico who’s moved on to the next dimension, the ones who should watch their backs now are those who sent the sorcerer my way because if it’s true that I don’t do black magic it’s also true that I have the gift of returning evil to its sender. And the many devotees that I have here as friends can corroborate it. I said I’m going to cleanse the cult and that’s what I’m going to do. This Thursday I will expose the main person who’s doing evil, so let the earth tremble!
