"Put a spell on him"

Back in the 70s I spent a few months living with Irish travellers in Wales. Their 14 year old daughter got involved with a lad they disapproved of ... so they asked a Catholic priest for help. When he asked them what they expected him to do they said: "Put a spell on him!". They were very disappointed in him when he said he couldn't. They genuinely believed that priests and nuns, etc. had "magical powers".
