The Roman Catholic Wishing Well
There are THREE (mocking the Trinity) levels of demonic operations:
The Bible is very clear on the spiritual war raging around us. Waged within multiple dimensions simultaneously.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
This means we have a hierarchy within these three categories as well. In order to gain power from these demonic entities, people sacrifice many things from the living world around us.
In most cases, the spring or river has acquired sacredness through connection with a significant or miraculous event.
The water of the River Jordan is sacred because Jesus Christ was baptized in it by Saint John the Baptist, so of course Satan would counterfeit this process.
Springs and wells were perceived as the dwelling place of supernatural beings, and stories and legends grew up around them.
The Babylonian moon goddess, Ishtar, was associated with sacred springs, and her temples were often situated in natural grottoes from which springs emanated.
This practice of venerating sacred wells continued into the Christian era in the West, though they were now referred to as wishing wells.
Springs and wells also took the form of sacred fountains which were claimed to be the Fountain of Youth, or the Fountain of Immortality, or the Well of Knowledge.
Legends down through the ages speak of a coin tossed into the well, and a ‘wish’ is made, then the magical wishing well makes your wish come true.
The water in the well was said to contain a deity…some sort of magical creature. They were considered the guardian of the well who granted the wish IF THE PRICE WAS PAID.
Some of the oldest wells were associated with pagan gods, but in the Middle Ages the Christian church replaced with with saints and then they became known as ‘holy wells’.
One of the legends tells of a well that was once on Wirrall Hill in mystical Glastonbury, Somerset, England. Once the site of the first Christian church in the U.K., there was also a holy well that was used to heal the sick. All that remains there now are the ruins of an abbey.
Legends also tell of wishing wells that produced prophetic visions. The Holy Well at the churchyard in Holywell, Cambridgeshire, England was one such well where young girls would make a wish to see the face of the man that they would marry in the water of the well.
The Roman philosopher Seneca declared that Where a spring rises or a water flows there ought we to build altars and offer sacrifices. This was frequently undertaken.
Pausanias (VII, 21. 11) reports that a sacred stream in front the the sanctuary of Demeter at Patras served as an infallible mode of divination using a mirror.
As we see in the link provided here,
The spring of Demeter in Patras, also the site of the oracle of Demeter, today holy spring of Agios Andreas.
The sacred spring at the Oracle of Demetra in Patras. After Christianity, the spring became the holy well of Hagios Andreas Church.
Do you know where that is?
St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Patras
Did you know most Catholic cathedrals are built on fountains to be connected to water spirits? It’s TRUE!
OPENING DOORWAYS FOR WATER SPIRITS:
* Sprinkling of “holy waters” (Catholics). Such as: Infant baptism
I just placed “fountain” behind any name of a Catholic church/establishment. Amazingly, it revealed a fountain at 99.9999999% of the places. I couldn’t have listed them all. It was just too many!
Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, informally known as COLA or the Los Angeles Cathedral, in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia also known as Barcelona Cathedral in Spain.

In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos (son of Zeus) of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur eventually killed by the hero Theseus.
Why would there be a labyrinth at a Roman Catholic Church?
Chartres Cathedral, France
The Roman Catholic church is NOT what people perceive it to be!
