but is catholics imitating what they learned from pagans centuries ago--
i must say i read the catholics bishops wear amethst
February Birthstone Amethyst Violet Quartz Crystal Worn by Catholic Bishops
i wonder if they learned a long time ago about the knowledge of amethysts healing power
i found this too on the net
do any other catholics/ christians believe in crystal healing and a...Spirituality Discussion
i?m catholic, and i use crystal healing, i used to get drained, and would build up negativity, i wear amethyst and clear crystal bracelets, and have a amethyst crystal on the coffee table.
maybe i?m a catholic witch.
also the cape the bishop and pope wears sounds like a carbon copy of zeus'es Aegis
An aegis ( /ids/), from Greek , is a large collar or cape worn in ancient times to display the protection provided by a high religious authority or the holder of a protective shield
there seems to me to be a trend here-- what is you opinion?
