Dr Martello was of the tradition of the Sicilian Mago/Maga craft of the wise, better known as Strega or Religione Vecchia- the old religion
To know Leo was a great honor. He was my mentor and dearest friend. He taught me many things about life and the magical world.
However, the greatest was this, to have courage even if you have to stand alone for justice and humanity . He said to me many times, the strong find a way, the weak always will try to find a way out
Leo wrote many books, one of which is "Witchcraft, the Old Religion." It is a book that speaks from the heart, and imparts to the reader a vast knowledge of the Sicilian craft belief. A book well worth your time to read , especially the early edition.
As I gaze into the night sky, I see a very bright star, and I know that star is Leo. Lion among men, and the Craft of the Wise. I know he is surrounded by his beloved K9 friends Boom Boom One , and Boom Boom Two as well as his dearest LuLu
And ,so I say this night, well done my friend!
We of the old religion, will never forget your never ending quest for the honor of our God and Goddess to be respected.
May you come back to those you have loved, and those who have loved you!
