We recently had a question from a reader who wonders if it’s okay to use Chinese spoon massage.

His message is dark and dire and honestly frightening. I wanted to see if there was any reliable information form the Church and other credible individuals about Mr. Johnston and his visions.”
JL writes: “I am curious about a behavioral system currently used at our Catholic school. It is a Dojo system that has the child create an avatar-monster. Every time they are on task, the teacher rewards or removes points from your avatar with her computer. Nth entire class can see this on a computer screen. The system seems benign, but if you look closely at the description their are hints of both the Hindu and Asian faiths incorporated. Please research and let me know.”
EE writes: “I would be very grateful if you could help me with a question. My boyfriend and I want to get married. We are both Spanish but we share a nice bond with Ireland due to several reasons. My boyfriend would like to give me a Claddagh wedding ring but I am not sure if it´s an occult symbol. I may sound a bit simplistic, I know the history behind it, and I know it´s very popular in Ireland. The problem is that I have dwelt in the occult a long time ago and I do not want anything to do with it again. Could you please help me and confirm whether or not is an occult symbol?”
We’ve had some questions about the latest rage in fitness/charity events such as The Color Run and Color Me Rad events. Are they really based upon a Hindu tradition and what is their connection to the New Age? And is it true that they only donate a fraction of their proceeds to the charities they are supposed to be fundraising for?
MCA writes: “I looked for any information about The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren on the website and nothing came up. Do you have any comments regarding the appropriateness for Catholics who may want to read this book?”
