Does anyone know how common it is to find practicing Roman Catholics who are also active in psychic/medium practices? My experiences with RCCs give me the impression that they are largely humanistic and borderline secular. I have rarely met any devout Catholics whose practices are in line with what the church actually teaches. I also know that there are many people in the church claiming to be involved in the occult. Many of them are liberal feminists who thank the doctrines of Mary and the Saints for getting them into goddess and medium practices. Some are even in to neo-paganism, and see Mary as just another identity or name of the earlier more ancient goddess who they sometimes claim is a purer form of the feminist spiritual force. The Long Island Medium, a popular TV personality, claims she is actively in the Roman Catholic church taking sacraments, all the while communicating to people's deceased relatives and believes in a more new age cosmic force God and Jesus as just a good teacher to help unify people's spiritual consciousness. There also has been no word that her priest or church has called her out on this practice despite how well known she is. So how common in your experience is occult synchronization with Catholic beliefs in your experiences? Most Roman Catholics I've talked to are open to the idea or already know people who are doing it, and use the same things to justify it as I mentioned earlier. I have heard an account of a priest who had encounters with phenomenon in a haunted house but couldn't justify it as Satanic, so he left the church and became a practicing medium.
