Hi, first post. Just wanted to say Hi too in here, and heres my first question.
According to Catholic teaching, arent charms or anything luck related not approved to wear or own? I have this black onyx bead “evil eye” charm given to me by my mom (Catholic --> Protestant sorta) and I value it as it was a gift from her. I have a very close relationship with my mom and I was wondering if I am doing something bad, within Catholic teaching, by wearing this.
I’ll describe the item more… its a small black onyx bead with many small facets, no painting of an eyeball or anything like that. Its got a red plastic thing running thru the center to hold it together with the clasp, where you attack it to your chain/necklace.
Is this occult or bad? Thanks
