Firstly I want to say that I’m Catholic and I’m mostly interested in discussion w those who take seriously the distinction between orthodox and heterodox. I’m new so I don’t know the general tenor around here re: Church teaching.
I’m trying to learn more about so-called ‘folk Catholicism.’ This set of traditions contains a great amount of variety. Many so-called ‘folk Catholic’ practices are actually heterodox pagan practices w a Catholic gloss. But some so-called ‘folk Catholic’ practices are orthodox, and seem to represent an unfortunately-neglected living tradition of Catholic magic. However many sources on these traditions are in Spanish. Does anyone here know of a good English forum for discussion of so-called ‘folk Catholicism?’ Is this a good forum for it? Thanks.
