Harry Potter Books


The following file on Harry Potter, from the July/August 2000 newsletter of St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers (www.dads.org/), has generously been given to EWTN by founder Steve Wood. It represents the opinion of the newsletter's authors and should be accepted as such. Parents who have found the Harry Potter books useful may be inclined to disagree. However, the cautions about a pre-occupation with the occult still remains. Even if the moral metaphors in Potter serve some good purpose, the lives of the saints represent a magic more powerful and real, holiness, and one without any danger to the reader. We are what we read.
