Tom Brady is treading some dangerous waters!
The NFL superstar revealed some of his pregame rituals while someone shaved his beard for charity at Gillette’s World Shaving Headquarters.
Brady was actually baptized and raised Catholic, but it is clear he no longer practices.
In a video recording of the event, Brady credits his career success to his wife’s witchcraft and New Age rituals.
Brady’s football success includes three NFL MVP awards, six Super Bowl champions, and four Super Bowl MVP awards.
Brady explained that his wife “is all about the Power of Intention,” “makes a little altar for him at the game,” that he has “healing and protection stones,” “wears a necklace and takes drops she makes,” and recites mantras.
These rituals derive from New Age practices, which have ties to witchcraft and the occult.
Brady also said that he thought it was crazy at first, but stopped questionng her. He truly believes these rituals help him win.
At the end of the video, he quotes his wife, saying, “You’re lucky you married a witch. I’m just a good witch.”

What the Catholic Church Says About Occult Practices
The Catechism of the Catholic Church 2116-2117 states this about the occult:
“All forms of divination are to be rejected:
recourse to Satan or demons,
conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely
supposed to “unveil” the future.
“Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading,
interpretation of omens and lots,
the phenomena of clairvoyance,
and recourse to mediums
all conceal a desire for power over time,
history, and, in the last analysis,
other human beings,
as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers.
They contradict the honor,
respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
“All practices of magic or sorcery,
by which one attempts to tame occult powers,
so as to place them at one’s service
and have a supernatural power over others –
even if this were for the sake of restoring their health –
are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion.
These practices are even more to be condemned
when accompanied by the intention of harming someone,
or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons.
Wearing charms is also reprehensible.
Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices;
the Church for her part warns the faithful against it.
Recourse to so-called traditional
cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers
or the exploitation of another’s credulity.”
Even though the audience laughs about Brady’s rituals, we should not take them lightly. These rituals could have serious consequences. It invites demonic activity, and the Church teaches that this is gravely sinful.
