Dear Sister-

I read the books too. The first two. I do not read any more. If you bring your children up with a good foundation in Christ nothing will stop them. As long as they stay in Christ. But many more are trying the real occultic practices.

Do you see more psychic stores opening up? I did in my northern town now down here in south since being here in a year. I mean brand new ones. Look around it is all connected. You think that is good? It is danger. Wrong. Seductive evil.

Genesis 3

The Fall

1"Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”


4 “YOU will NOT CERTAINLY die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your Eyes will be Opened, and you will be Like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves."


“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

*** Oh the sweet whispering! What do you thinking the god of this world uses to get an edge on people. This is one of them. This whole life is a trial for real Godly wisdom until the end.

I will go by the vatican exorcist who knows the enemy better than you and me. I will be praying for us. The more I pray in Christ the more I can see the subtle ways of the enemy.

Philippians 4:6-7

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Let's make sure without a doubt we have the Peace of God which comes from prayers which will guard our hearts and minds.

Praise Jesus!!

>>I will go by the vatican exorcist who knows the enemy better than you and me.<<

I’ll go with Msgr. Peter Fleedwood, an expert on New Age and former official at the Pontifical Council for Culture who was advising the exorcists. None of whom are against this Children’s literature.

You and Fr. Amorith can link HP to New Age and the occult to your hearts content but they are two different animals just like marriage between a man and a woman and gay marriage. You can find similarities if you want to find them.

My daughter went to my Priest who told her that Harry Potter is fine as long as it is not a “guide”. It’s not. If you weren’t looking for the devil in those books you would see that the magic is a talent. Not something that can be developed nor can one “sell your soul” to get the talent. You would see that the villain in the book, chose evil, as many humans do and lost his humanity because of it.

I would think that someone as knowledgeable as you are about the occult and New Age would be thrilled to use these books to teach lessons to young people. If you truly deal with young people, use these books to show the consequences of sin. Stop looking for the evil that is not there. Lead them away from the New Age with a tool that they have already.

If you dismiss Harry Potter, then you must never watch Wizard of Oz because of Glinda the Good Witch or God Forbid you pick up any of the Lord of the Rings series. There is an awful lot of magic flowing around there.

May I suggest a book?

You will see the Catholic pov on these books here. Then your passions can be used against true evil. Not the evil you imagine. The Devil has powers to use what seems reasonable and twist it.

Ever think he is twisting Harry Potter?
