Dangers of the occult

  • Hour 3 of 10-30-19
  • Are ghosts and witches real? Should we be afraid of them? What does the Church teach about them? Is Halloween even a holiday you should partake in? These are questions many Catholics wonder around this time of year. Father Paul Desmarais gives you perspective on all things Halloween and takes your calls and questions about anything from witches, to the origins of Halloween and the Church’s teachings on it. One caller is concerned about her daughter who has been friends with someone she suspects is involved in the occult. Over the years, her daughter has experienced severe anxiety and mood swings, and is concerned it is because of a diabolic nature brought on by her friend. Another caller was present at the time a spell occurred, and is worried that she might be affected by it. Hear Fr. Desmarais’ advice on this and more. He encourages you to maintain a constant spiritual life involving Mass, the Rosary, and remaining in the state of grace.
