"Christ is stronger than the pumpkin
Pagan custom can be dangerous - warn ministers
"The Church warns against engaging in any form of the occult and magic" - recalled Archbishop Leszek Sławoj Głódź in the message to the faithful of the Archdiocese of Gdańsk.
He also stressed: "Roots" Halloween "date back to pagan celebrations of the spirits and the Celtic god of death. Author of" Satan's Bible "and founder of modern Satanism Anton Lavey said that the night of October 31 to November 1 is the largest celebration of Lucifer."
i was reading about this is the Polish paper today.
So we can all relax, Jesus is stronger than a pumpkin....
I wonder if it is scare mongering or pure stupidity?
The strangest thing for me is that All saints is not an original part of the Catholic Church.
To change the people from pre-Christian beliefs the RRC adopted some of the preexisting festivals.
I really like All Saints but to put down other people's festivals/cultures is not so cool, at least they should promote St. Patrick's Day :)
