Having spent some time in Romania years ago, I know there is a large portion of the population that truly believes in witchcraft and magic.
I visited many a church and often times, the priests would speak of witches and such as one of their issues regarding religion.
I didn't see a problem but they sure did.
I did get the honor of seeing the body of an actual saint residing in a church. It was an amazing sight as she had been dead for over 400 years but she looked like Mother Theresa and like she had just died that day.
I was given a blessed icon when I left the church and a witch, as she claimed to be, was very upset at the sight of it when I passed her on the sidewalk just outside the church.
What a world!!
