Sacramentals

The same sacramentals used in the Catholic Church are used in blessing rituals, whereby the sacramentals are never disrespected. However, they are also used, quite extensively in stregoneria (witchcraft), where there is more of a grey area and therefore a practitioner may find themselves walking the fine line between the sacred and the profane or, stepping right into sacrilege.
