CWN Editor's Note: “Between 10 to 13 million Italians – almost all of them baptized Catholics – have turned to sorcerers or witches at least once in their lives,” according to the report. “The epicenter of witchcraft and occultism is in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, with 2,800 occult operators and 200,000 clients.”

    My own opinion here is that because we have woven rationalism and materialism into our faith life, there is a deep need for the spiritual. If it isnt coming from the Church, as we feel the need to be relevant and modern (its just part of fitting in with the culture), we are missing something that we are made for...the spiritual depth our faith offers. SO we get that part somewhere else.
