Just what we need – another weird reality show from Discovery’s TLC that promotes “irregular” lifestyles. First it was Sister Wives which tries to portray polygamy (which is illegal in the U.S.) in a positive light, now it’s an eight-week series that peaks into the life of a Long Island woman who claims she can talk to the dead.
AC asks: “What does the church teach about numerology?”
LL writes: “I am a 41 y.o. cradle Catholic. I recently saw a book my godmother is reading, about a medium who is from the westside of Cleveland who claims to help people who have died and haven’t gone over to the other side. My godmother is convinced that her mother had a ghost in her apartment before she died, and that this woman helped it “go towards the light,” She also said her sister had this woman come out to her house, to help some other guy who hadn’t crossed over. When I told her that I would’ve called a priest if I thought there was spiritual activity in my home, she claimed that this woman doesn’t communicate with evil spirits – just poor souls who got confused or had reasons that they couldn’t go over to the other side. Yikes! Obviously my godmother is/was Catholic – she’s my godmother. However, she’s drifting into spiritualism. She even said that her sister put some seed over every doorway, to keep any more spirits from entering. Can you give me some resources that I can use when talking to my godmother?”
