I do believe in spooks...

... I do, I do.

Not only are Catholics not afraid of death, we are all around fantastically awesome in our morbidity. We have an active Communion of Saints that we talk to, pray with, and plead for intercession. We grow so attached to saints long dead on this earth that we begin to consider them friends and confidants. We swear they communicate with us using signs and dreams.

I am wholeheartedly convinced that the Saints are using my word verification captcha phrases to send me secret messages.

I wish my Patron Saints would talk to me. Maybe they do.

St. John Bosco made a deal with a friend in the seminary that the first one to die will come back to say if he's been saved. The other guy did and St. John documented it in his memoirs. ( Call them spooks but that elevates the CIA to a spiritual level. ) Regardless, death does not end life, it merely transforms. If they manifest themselves though, they may need prayers.

Skeptics are like cops at a traffic accident who ignore the eyewitnesses to take down testimony from people who weren't there or didn't see it happen. One wonders if they're merely incompetent or bought and paid for.

I don't know if angels speak through the Captcha or not, but it does remind me of Charismatic speaking in tongues ....

About a year ago First Things had a piece called "Death in Naples" (archived on its web page) about people in that city "adopting" bones from the crypt there. Seems that so many people died of plague there that ever since, concerned that they have no family members to pray for them, people have been choosing a set of bones and praying for the person they belonged to, to help them get out of Purgatory. Now THAT'S a religion!
