• Satan Influence on Teenage Girls?

    Satan's influence on Teenage Girls? QUESTION from Sr. Tina-Maria on February 14, 2004 To whom it may concern, I have a friend who is very concerned about her teenage daughter. Her daughter claims to fornicate with Satan. This child firmly believes that this is the truth and swears by God's name that it is so. I want to help this mother but I’m not sure what to do. What does this mean? How do I help her? Is this possible? Would Satan have sexual relations with a 16 year old child of God? The mere idea...
  • Amityville horror

    Amityville horror QUESTION from omar on December 20, 2003 Hello Brother: I'm sure you've heard of the Amityville Horror case. Over the years, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the case, and I was curious to hear your opinion on it.

I have also personally talked to a Catholic exorcist, who told me that he talked to the actual priest who was involved in the case, and...
  • Removing Reiki

    Removing Reiki QUESTION from Chris on December 10, 2003 Hi, Before I pose my question(s), I would like to offer thanks, and a bit of history. I am currently 20 years old. Several years ago, when I was probably not more than 12 (I forget exactly how long ago), members of my family became interested in Reiki. An uncle became a Reiki master, and began to initiate more of my family, including me. At the time, I went along with this without question, following the lead of my parents, grandparents, and other relatives. I remember my...
  • Baptism Godparents Question

    Baptism QUESTION from Dawn on December 15, 2003 My husband and I were asked to be Godparents for our niece. My husband and his family are Catholic. I however, am Episcopal. I feel very touched that we were asked, but have been told by a number of friends who are Catholic that cross religion baptisms are not allowed.

My sister in law believes that it is up to the parents to choose suitable godparents for the child...
  • Status of Saint Christopher after Vatican II

    Status of Saint Christopher after Vatican II QUESTION from Aaron on April 30, 2003 Dear Brother, Does anyone still remember Saint Christopher, the good old saint which still today may adorn dashboards of cars with his pictures and small medals? Though after Vatican II, the feast days of many saints were dropped, it is rumoured that St. Christopher (one of the dropped feast days) has been de-saint-ified, or to put it less comically; as has been removed from the list of saints (Though I'm not sure if the Roman Martyrology has dropped it). One the reasons...

  • We hold upon this earth

    We hold upon this earth... QUESTION from Gerard on June 14, 2003 Dear Bro Ignatius and Friends, We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty. Please clarify if I got this right. Anti-Catholics love this quote from Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae of Pope Leo XIII to prove that the Holy Father is the Anti-Christ. Amazing. However I did notice that in the full translation, first-person plural pronouns such as We and Us are capitalized, which seems to indicate that they refer to the Church (it does appear to be common practice to capitalize pronouns that...
