HAWTHORNE (CBSLA.com) Hes known as the Catholic saint who watches over immigrants and he continues to bring out the faithful across southern California. As the immigration battle heats up, the prayers of the faithful are fired up.
Ana Magellan and Jorge Cruz drove to St. Josephs Church in Hawthorne to touch the chest of a statue of Santo Toribio, the patron saint of border-crossers and the sick. Lets leave everything to God, said Cruz...

Gee Catholics, thanks a lot for making that guy a saint.
I did not know the Church, my Church him a saint?
They are supporting Lawlessness I suppose.
Actually he’s a martyr, killed during the horrible persecution of the Church in the late 20s and thirties simply because he was a priest.
Is he the patron saint of all border crossers? The coyotes and drug runners too?
There is a belief among some Mexicans that the ghost of Toribio Romo has appeared to some undocumented immigrants crossing the border to assist them in distress. He is used as an icon for the hope of food, water and money, as well as safety.
Santo Toribio? I thought it was Obama.
For desert border crossers, it’s more likely to be Santisima Muerte
It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that 0bama has dispatched his lackeys to the Vatican to make the RCC an offer it can’t refuse - to grant The 0ne sainthood of a higher order than Toribio Romo. This prize he would add to his collection of unjustly earned achievements.
My first thought, too.
ZUCKERBERG WHERE DO YOU LIVE
EXCELLENT MUST SEE 6 MINUTE BILL WHITTLE VIDEO!
Bill skillfully skewers the limousine leftist hypocrites on their phony feel good posturing on ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
Please help this one also go viral! We have a country to save and we’re about out of time!!
The Church has completely missed the target here. Their target should be 0bama and his illegal actions luring these helpless people to the USA.
I was guessing the profane Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte, “Saint Death”, aka Señora de las Sombras (”Lady of the Shadows”), Señora Blanca (”White Lady”), Señora Negra (”Black Lady”), Niña Santa (”Holy Girl”), Santa Sebastiana (St. Sebastienne) or Doña Bella Sebastiana (”Our Beautiful Lady Sebastienne”) and La Flaca (”The Skinny Lady”).
In truth, it is just a crude extrapolation from Aztec mythology, of Mictecacihuatl, Queen of Mictlan, the underworld. The land of the dead. In the myth, she began her career as a child sacrifice.
Ironically as all blazes, it is worshiped as the patron saint of the drug cartels, and the LGBT(!)
Worship has been made up of roughly two million to five million adherents, mostly in Mexico State, Guerrero, Veracruz, Tamaulipas, Campeche, Morelos, and Mexico City, with a recent spread to Nuevo León.
It is one of the few heresies that the Catholic church openly and vigorously opposes, though chapels and shrines are increasingly common. They are typically brick buildings with just one to a few high windows, because they are a magnet for bullets.
The serious potential risk is that it could turn from a death worshiping cult to a murderous cult, like the Thuggee in India. All it needs is a charismatic leader, and it could be a nightmare across North and central America.
It has been making some quiet inroads into the Mexican Hispanic communities in the US as well. Do a Google Image Search for “santa muerte merchandise”.
The Catholic church is very correct that this pagan perversion is just pure evil, and a disaster waiting to happen.
I forget if Castro was made a saint?
Was the St. Joseph that the local church was named for Mengele or Stalin?
I believe that the patron saint for MS-13 is Satan.
Pope Says Children at U.S. Border Must Be ‘Welcomed and Protected’
“....Santo Toribio, the patron saint of border-crossers....”
Never, never heard of him.
Is he also the saint of ILLEGAL border crossers?
Then Toribio is not a saint.
He has a partial point. They are children, who should be welcomed, gathered up, deloused, fed and cared for until they are returned to their native countries.
The best technique to do this is fly them home on chartered large aircraft, about 500 at a time. Much more cost effective.
Obama, having perpetrated this whole catastrophe, must love watching Christians v Christians on the clubhouse TV at some exclusive golf course far from the fray.
