    • First being a Witch is not a religion.. Secondly The Catholic Church invented invocation to the Saints. (Incantation, meditation is Prayer for the Better Good _
      Some see the Holy Mother Mary as being “Mother Nature”.
      My Great grandmother was a Registered Nurse, healer and Mid-Wife …back in the ancient times she would have been called a Witch, those who study the healing properties of plants and herbs are and have been called a Witch.
      People do not be ignorant….witch is just an antique old English word for healer.

  1. If you’re Irish, you’re Irish. If you want to stay in the Catholic church, I’m pretty sure you can’t tell them you’re a witch (practsing Wicca). You can DO whatever you want but after looking into the two religions, I seriously doubt you can ‘believe’ both.

  2. YOU CAN’T SERVE TWO MASTERS.YOU’LL EITHER LOVE THE ONE OR HATE THE OTHER. YOU EITHER SERVE GOD OR THE DEVIL;NOT THE TWO AT ONE TIME.THEY ARE OPPOSED TO EACH OTHER;GOOD-EVIL.

  3. The first felons in America to be sentenced to die by hanging from a tree branch with a rope tied around their necks were Irish witches… Check Wikipedia!

  4. I am Irish but am very much a Christian…. I don’t think you can be a practitioner of Magick or of Wicca and still practise Christianity in any form. So if you want to stay Catholic you might take solace in that if you go through menopause you will be a crone(LOL).

  5. Irish Catholics is a term used to describe people of Catholic or Roman Catholic background who are Irish or of Irish descent.
    The term is of note due to Irish immigration to many countries of the English speaking world, particularly as a result of the Irish Famine in the 1840s – 1850s, following which the population declined by over half in the following century (from approx. over 8 million to just over 4 million) due to the pattern of immigration begun then. The term has currency in Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Some of these nations had, or have, a majority of Protestants; thus, both aspects – being Catholic, and being Irish – at times separated them from the mainstream culture. In the United States, hostility to both these aspects was expressed through the Know-Nothing movement and Nativism in general.
    The term can also relate to a period when Catholicism in Ireland was isolated from and culturally distinct from the Catholic church in the rest of Europe. Though mostly reconciled with the Synod of Cashel in 1172, some elements unique within the practice of Catholicism and Catholic culture remained in Ireland.
    ‘Irish Catholic’ is also used to distinguish Catholic inhabitants of Ireland, who are mostly of native Gaelic origin, from the Ulster-Scots and the Anglo-Irish, and the North American descendants of Irish Catholic emigrants from the Scots-Irish.

  6. Well, this is something to think about. If you feel drawn towards neo-paganism and Wicca, there is obviously something there for you that you are not getting from Catholicism. What is it that interests you? Why do you feel as if what you have been taught or trained in is no longer serving you? These are questions that every witch/wiccan/pagan asked themselves before leaving the church. It’s a long road, but believe me, it’s so worth every step. If you truly want to experience this, you must leave behind Catholicism. It is impossible to be a pagan/wiccan and still be Christian. The two do not mix, and trying to make them mix will cause you nothing but heartache, headache, and pain.
    So now you need to ask yourself what you want, and go with it. But please learn about and researech paganism/wicca before making a choice.
    Blessed be!

  7. So you pretty much want to practice something like voodoo (but with your irish roots instead of haitian)? its possible thats exactly what i do =p
