The Druid Path
Druidry & Christianity
OBODs Druidry acts as a bridge between
Paganism and Christianity.
The early form of the Celtic Christian church was
still connected to Nature and the mysteries it held.
Both Christianity and Druidry deal
essentially with the same mystery: the waxing and waning of the powers of light - its
eternal triumph as it is continually resurrected from its apparent death, and its
immanence with each one of us as the Christ Child or Mabon.
Both use crosses as symbols. Interestingly, the
Celtic Cross was enclosed by a circle, for spirit, the turning of the wheel. The Circle is
the Feminine, to the spokes angular Masculine. The Christian Cross elongated the
Masculine and shrank the Feminine until it was usually gone completely.
Modern Druidry expands the Christian Holy Family
to include the Mother and the Daughter, reestablishing the feminine to deity, once again
creating a balance.
