Ghosts

What are they? What do you make of them? This, like most “paranormal” stuff is one of those topics about which Catholic theology has very little to say other than “Don’t try to contact dead people” and “It’s a stranger world than we know.” The basic rule of thumb for Catholics is, “Don’t seek out the paranormal. On the other hand, sometimes weird things happen to people without their seeking it out and it should be discerned, not chucked out instantaneously.” If the paranormal thing doesn’t conflict with the Tradition (think “Lourdes”) then it might be from God. If it does, ignore it, even if there seems to be something genuinely supernatural taking place. The devil is supernatural, after all. That doesn’t mean he’s doing God’s work.

Any thought on the matter?
