How does the Catholic Church view Carl Jung and his teachings?6

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 1/21/2014:

Dear Anon,

Jung did not favor organized religions but still considered himself to be very spiritual. Hence he is a favorite of those who have the same attitude. Now the Catholic Church is a prime example of organized religion. She emphasizes the duty of being chaste, of following the Ten Commandments and of following the precepts of the Church. This is something that everybody can understand an practice IF THEY ARE LIKE HUMBLE SHEEP FOLLOWING THE GOOD SHEPHERD. But when we get educated we begin to feel like especially wise and sensitive souls who need a special way to get spiritual. That's the trap that Jung sets up for us. The ordinary way of living a happy life is not enough for us special folks. That's the pride that prevent us from being obedient to religious authority.

Dr. Geraghty
