This is just to announce a new essay on my alternate blog, Preternatural Quest ( http://preternaturalquest.wordpress.com/ ). The essay is titled as above and provides a view of the secular celebration of Halloween from a Catholic and what a Christian can do to take back this wonderful feast of Holy Mother Church.
For the readership who may have missed this, the Preternatural Quest site was set up to contradict the common pop-culture of the New Age, even among Catholics through Catholic apologetic and by visiting and refuting so-called haunted sites in the near Northeastern US. It seems more and more Christians are being deluded into belief in the occult, superstitions, and other wiles of the devil. PQ is my small effort to counter this trend largely through informing people of their Catholic Faith and the beliefs it holds.
