As part of my wheeling and dealing with this little known Saint I’m making good on my promise of public praise. Saint Apollonia is known as a Saint of Dentistry and Tooth pain. She had all her teeth violently removed or broken (differs depending on account you read) for not renouncing her faith, then when faced with the option of being burned alive or renouncing her faith she willingly jumped into the flames of the fire set for her.
Regardless of if you dislike the church or their philosophies it’s hard not to respect someone who willingly endures that level of pain due to their beliefs or values. In todays world of belief/pantheon/religion hopping it’s hard to fathom that kind of dedication to one’s spirits or gods regardless of if you like them or not.
Myself being a huge coward when it comes to anything involving dentistry petitioned St. Apollonia as I had a dentist appointment and asked that not only the procedure go as smoothly and painlessly as possible but that my dentist be on top of his game. Once I was at the appointment and the dentist was ready to begiin he kept going back to the xrays and found something that made him decide against the procedure and instead referred me for a dental surgical procedure. So not only did my dentist not get in over his head while prodding around in my mouth but now I get the benefit of being unconscious for the procedure. On top of that he sent me home with some good painkillers. Win win
I’m not Catholic and do not practice Christianity as a religion so I thought I’d make a point to mention that Saints can be allroached outside the context of their religious role. I work with Saints as more of a type of necromancy as they are nothing more than elevated and venerated dead. This makes them far more capable than the majority of dead spirits one works with when practicing necromantic methods. Also this being a lesser known saint means she was more eager to work for the offerings I specified in my dealings with her.
I did not use any trance state to contact her, only a simple heartfelt petition and an offer of payment if she came through for me…which she did.
So once again THANK YOU SAINT APOLLONIA!
So in closing if any of you have any kind of dental issues be it tooth pain, dentist appointment or you’re a huge sniveling sissy like me when faced with the dentist chair seek out the intercession of St Apollonia.
