    From a reader…

    Father, what’s the deal with tarot cards. I saw something about them being dangerous for the soul. I don’t get why. They’re just pieces of paper with art on them. What’s the story here.

    If you are “playing” with or using tarot cards or a ouija board …

    STOP NOW.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

    2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.

    Here are the scriptures dealing with this issue.
    You shall not permit a sorceress to live Exodus 22:18

    You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination or soothsaying Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them. to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God And the person who turns after mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people A man or a woman who is a medium or a wizard shall be put to death; they shall be stoned to death, their blood is upon them (Leviticus 19:26,31; 20:6,27)

    When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).

    Now if people say to you, Consult the ghosts and the familiar spirits that chirp and mutter:
    should not a people consult their gods, the dead on behalf of the living, for teaching and for instruction?” Surely, those who speak like this will have no dawn! (Isaiah 8:19,20)

    I appreciate you posting this, I've known a lot of people who attended a catholic church over the years who were into astrology, and visited psychics.

    The occult is no joke.

    I agree. I was exposed to the occult as a young child and I'm still dealing with the after effects.

    I've had people laugh at me because I refused to hang around while others played with a Ouija board. I let them laugh, and just said, "Listen, if you actually do manage to conjure anything up on that thing, you'll wish you hadn't. First off, it won't be your dear deceased Aunt Mildred, and two, once you get it to come up, it's nearly impossible to get rid of it."
