Yes! I believe it's very true that Catholicism and the more "Celtic" Christianity (or pagan beliefs) can be considered complementary, or perhaps overlapping, or--in fact--maybe sometimes one and the same. The Eucharist can certainly represent the cycle of birth-death-rebirth, which would appeal to the "pagans." And there are so many holy ponds and trees and circles in Ireland that represent God's breathtaking creation--something both would find to be central to the celebration of life. Creation is infused with God! And surely both groups believe in a Holy Spirit. The article above captures people whose beliefs cast a wide net--but still I think they and progressive Catholics have more in common that they'd both admit.
