Devotio Sanctis Sacriveneficiis, Hieromartyribus Nicomediæ in anno MMXV

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy Kingdom come, thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory, forever and ever, world without end, amen.

Sancte Cypriane, ora pro nobis. +
Sancta Justina, ora pro nobis. +
Sancte Theociste, ora pro nobis. +

Saint Cyprian of Antioch, together with Saint Justina and Saint Theocistus, pray for us, now and at the hour of our death, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. +

Saint Cyprian of Antioch, mage, martyr, mystic; theurge, thaumaturge, theophoros; saint, sorcerer, sage; pray for us, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. +

Saint Justina, who by the Sign of the Holy Cross defended herself and all Antioch from all spiritual affliction and demonic attack, pray for us, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. +

Saint Theocistus, who witnessed the grace and holy power of Cyprian and Justina and converted at their execution, becoming a martyr even upon your own salvation, pray for us, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. +

Jesus Christ, Son of God, hear our prayers and let our cries come to you, as once did and forever do the prayers of your saints Cyprian and Justina and Theocistus, whom you have made worthy to show your grace and glory to the world, that we may do the same and abide as one in eternal communion with them. Amen. +

Blessed ancestors, holy departed ones of our families and our traditions, our blood and our faith, through the merits of Saint Cyprian of Antioch who stands at the gate of Hell, hear our prayers that we pray for your intercession, and pray for us for ours that we may be joined as one before the Heavenly Throne in righteousness and innocence and eternal grace. Amen. +

Infernal demons and spirits of this world, by the grace with which you obey God and by the same Source from whence we all descend, and by the intercession and protection of Saint Cyprian of Antioch, look after us kindly and without malice, refrain from causing us harm or misfortune, and help us achieve our fate as man becoming God as God became Man in Jesus Christ. Amen. +

Saint Cyprian of Antioch, as you insisted in the church to be baptized after seeing the light of Truth and preserving yourself from evil by the sign of the Holy Cross, wash us now, now, immediately, immediately, quickly, quickly, soon, soon in the living waters of your holy death that tempered your infernal power with heavenly wisdom that we may be blessed by Jesus Christ with the same. Amen. + 

Saint Cyprian of Antioch, you who hold patronage over all occultists, magicians, sorcerers, necromancers, and all those who work with spirits above and below, together with Saint Justina who tempers worldly power with divine wisdom, and with Saint Theocistus who combines the heat of the body and the coolness of spirit into the art of grace extending out unto the world, pray for us, intercede for us, enlighten us, empower us, and help us in all our works, in all our words, in all our rites, at all times, on all days, in all hours, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. +

Take a small bag of white cloth, and fill it with a head of garlic, church incense, pure salt, mint, and parsley.  Seal it shut permanently.  During each of the Days of the Cyprians, the nine days leading up to but not including the Feast of Saint Cyprian of Antioch, Saint Justina, and Saint Theocistus on September 26 according to the Gregorian calendar, take the bag to a font of holy water in at least seven but no more than nine churches; holy water blessed by a magician or other priest may also be used, if water consecrated in a church is not available.  When dipping the bag of water in the holy water, recite the following orison:

Deliver me from my enemies and those who wish me ill.

Cross yourself with the bag from right to left.  Place it before an image of Saint Cyprian and pray over it that he bless you, keep you, and protect you from all pain, plague, poison, illness, injury, infirmity, death, disease, defilement, curse, cross, catastrophe, and all wickedness of all kinds from all sources.  Starting on the Feast, carry this bag with you wherever you go, and cross yourself with it before you sleep at night.

Every year, make a new bag during the Days of the Cyprians as before, but do not use it or destroy the old bag until the Feast.  At noon on the Feast, burn the old bag with alcohol and new wood, praying that as the bag is destroyed, so too may all negativity, all wickedness, all pain, all hurt, and all evil from the past year be destroyed; that as the fires sputter and go out, so too may the light and power of those who cause you harm diminish and cease to be.  Begin to use the new bag as needed.

    • Only in the sense that their domains border each other, but beyond that, no, not that I’ve heard of. In fact, many consider Saint Cyprian and Santa Muerte to be rivals or enemies; those practitioners who work with both keep them separated, preferably in different rooms of the house.
