Hi guys,

I recently discovered the Wiccan Religion. I find it quite interesting and I wish to possibly become a part in it but I am unsure if it is possible to be both Catholic and Wiccan.

I would appreciate any advice, websites, etc. on this subject before I make the wrong choice.

Mike replied:

Dear WantToBeBoth,

No, you cannot be both a faithful Catholic and practice Wicca.

No one will believe anything you say. Why? Because they are totally opposed to each other.

Contrast this:

with this:

From the Catechism on the First Commandment:

2113 Idolatry not only refers to false pagan worship. It remains a constant temptation to faith. Idolatry consists in divinizing what is not God. Man commits idolatry whenever he honors and reveres a creature in place of God, whether this be gods or demons (for example, satanism), power, pleasure, race, ancestors, the state, money, etc. Jesus says, You cannot serve God and mammon. Many martyrs died for not adoring the Beast refusing even to simulate such worship. Idolatry rejects the unique Lordship of God; it is therefore incompatible with communion with God.

I hope this helps,
