A Post-Halloween, All Souls Day Reality Check: Mediums/Psychics Deceive About Where The Souls Of The Righteous Are After Death


Death collecting and escorting the soul of a young woman upon her demise.
Our LORD Jesus and His Apostles and their Successors (Bishops and Priests) taught the Church that each individual will appear before GOD immediately after death.
This experience of judgment has been popularly called 
the Particular Judgment 
(the Individual or one-on-one judgment involving GOD and the individual soul ONLY).

When we die, we will find ourselves standing before GOD immediately after death.

This will not be the first time nor the only time we will have encountered our Creator! 

GOD has been present to us throughout
 our whole life.  
But, immediately after our deaths, GOD will confirm 
the persons we have freely chosen to develop and present to Him.

Let's take a look in Sacred Scripture concerning The Particular Judgement:

WISDOM 3:1
"The souls of the righteous are in the Hand of GOD, and no torment will ever touch them."
ECCLESIASTES 9:1
"Follow the ways of your heart, the vision of your eyes;  Yet understand regarding all this that GOD will bring you to judgment."
SIRACH 11:26-28
"For it is easy for the LORD on the day of death to repay mortals according to their conduct." 
LUKE 16:19–31
The Parable of Lazarus and The Rich Man. (Lazarus' soul, upon death, is taken lovingly into the bosom of Abraham and finds peace in the afterlife. The Rich Man finds only torment and pain, as he is punished for his selfish egocentricity and neglect of Lazarus.)
LUKE 23:43
Christ promises the penitent thief that his soul - instantly on leaving his body - would be in the state of the blessed: “This day you shall be with me in Paradise.”

The bare-boned, speedy synopsis of the Doctrine of The Particular Judgement is the following: The Particular Judgement was defined by the Early Church's...
+ Scriptural Teachings
+ Doctrinal Teachings
+ Catechetical Teachings and Homilies of the early Fathers of the Church
+ Decrees of the early Popes. 

The Catholic Doctrine of 
The Particular Judgement is this: 
That immediately after death, the eternal destiny of each separated soul is decided by the just judgment of GOD. 
FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH:
III. The Final Purification, or Purgatory
§1030 All who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.
§1031 The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned.604 The Church formulated her doctrine of faith on Purgatory especially at the Councils of Florence and Trent. The tradition of the Church, by reference to certain texts of Scripture, speaks of a cleansing fire. 605  As for certain lesser faults, we must believe that, before the Final Judgment, there is a purifying fire. He who is truth says that whoever utters blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will be pardoned neither in this age nor in the age to come. From this sentence we understand that certain offenses can be forgiven in this age, but certain others in the age to come.606
§1032 This teaching is also based on the practice of prayer for the dead, already mentioned in Sacred Scripture: “Therefore [Judas Maccabeus] made atonement for the dead, that they might be delivered from their sin.” 607 From the beginning the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God.608 The Church also commends almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance undertaken on behalf of the dead:
Let us help and commemorate them. If Job's sons were purified by their father's sacrifice, why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation? Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them. 609

     604 - Cf. Council of Florence (1439): DS 1304; Council of Trent (1563): DS 1820; (1547): 1580; 
                      see also Benedict XII, Benedictus Deus (1336): DS 1000. 
     605 - Cf. 1 Cor 3:15; 1 Pet 1:7. 
     606 - St. Gregory the Great, Dial. 4, 39: PL 77, 396; cf. Mt 12:31. 
     607 - 2 Macc 12:46. 
     608 - Cf. Council of Lyons II (1274): DS 856. 
     609 - St. John Chrysostom, Hom. in 1 Cor. 41, 5: PG 61, 361; cf. Job 1:5.


  • Souls that are most Christ-like, perfectly pure, are at once admitted to the beatific vision of the GODHEAD. 
  • Souls who depart in actual mortal sin are at once consigned to eternal punishment, the quality of which corresponds to their sin.
  • Souls leaving their bodies in an insufficient state of grace, not Christ-like enough - because they are spiritually wounded, soiled by minor/venial sins, and underdeveloped in their knowledge and love of GOD - receive "first aid" (healing and cleansing) in Purgatory.
The souls of the righteous, having been purified and perfected by
the love of the Holy Spirit, and assisted with prayers and Masses offered for them,
depart from their Purgation and ascend to their true homeland in Heaven.
And, so, after our death, GOD will confirm the persons you and I have freely chosen to develop and present to Him.
  • The souls of deceased human beings appear before GOD immediately after death: 
  • They encounter GOD Face-to-Face.
  • They are judged individually.
  • They are dispatched to Hell,
Purgatory, or Heaven until the
 Last Judgment comes when all the dead and those still alive at that time will stand before GOD to have their eternal destination made known to every human person created since Adam and Eve.

So, in regard to Mediums and Psychics and Ouija Boards telling you that your deceased loved ones are down at Starbucks, enjoying a double frou-frou latte, remember:

If human souls are not roaming the earth causing scary paranormal experiences, then there's only one agency which can create these activities: Evil Spirits -- Demons masquerading as the souls of deceased human persons.

The error most people make about what is really happening when they become involved with Mediums/Psychics/Ouija Boards, is in their explanation about the origin and purpose of the occult activities they experience.

If these experiences are not being caused by human souls, then it is a “no brainer” as to who, or what, manufactures these phenomena: Evil Spirits: Demons, trying to deceive us, to mislead us away from Christ and from the Church's Teachings, to destroy us.

Your deceased righteous loved ones are not moving the planchette around on the Ouija Board, nor speaking through Mediums. 


Based on my encounters with haunted places and haunting spirits, I assert that it is a very rare situation in which the disembodied soul of a deceased human person is the source of haunting activities. Does God permit such things? From our Catholic traditions and teachings concerning the souls of deceased persons, yes: In very rare occasions God has committed a human soul to haunt, to manifest itself to the living frequently in a particular location. 
Why and for how long will a human soul be consigned to a specific location?  That is God's business, not ours. We must avoid the temptation to create reasons or explanations for God's decision to encompass a particular human soul within some locale.  

"The souls of the righteous are in the hand of GOD, and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace." (Wisdom 3:1-9)

The souls of deceased virtuous, moral, holy human beings - whom GOD refers to as righteous - who lived faithfully the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ: 
  • Are not roaming the earth as if they are independent of GOD's Will;
  • Are not communicating through Psychics, Mediums and Ouija Boards.

So, the souls of the righteous are not haunting houses, are not giving interviews to Mediums or Psychics, and are not self-publishing through Ouija Boards. 

Because, as The Book Of Wisdom tells us, "The souls of the righteous are in the Hand of GOD" - not in some creepy old house in your neighborhood.

F.Y.I.:
CONSULTING WITH A PSYCHIC OR MEDIUM OR CHANNELER, 
USING A OUIJA BOARD OR TAROT CARDS ARE
 MORTAL SINS 

AGAINST THE 
1st COMMANDMENT OF GOD: 

MORTAL SINS WHICH CAN CONDEMN PEOPLE TO HELL.

If you have been there and done that, 
you better stop it a.s.a.p. and head to Confession.
