Your "Assistant Headmaster" had the privilege and pleasure of chatting with Lisa Mladinich, publisher of the invaluable AmazingCatechists.com and Be An Amazing Catechist.
We discussed her recent post, Killing Us Softly: Seduced by the Occult, regarding the current rage among some Catholics to casually arrange a meeting with so-called Psychics, Readers or Mediums for a "reading", or a "séance", or a "revelation" concerning the future.
As well, we discussed the rationale these Catholics use for committing these sins: "It's just for fun." "It's only entertainment." "It's not real."
A few words occur to me when I hear these excuses for disobeying God's Commandments. Words like: unwise, ill-advised, spiritually dangerous and mortally sinful. What follows in this post are the other words which occurred to me during my conversation with Lisa Mladinich. (For your convenience, what follows is the complete copy of Lisa's conversation with me.)
