Question from Ken Ebacher on 9/29/2005:

What is the Catholic Church,s official and traditional teaching about Ghosts?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 10/5/2005:

Dear Ken,

You will not find anything about Ghosts in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. We can, however, deduce the following from what the church does teach. It does teach angelic spirits (either good or evil)can and have appeared to men. Also human souls (either good or evil) have appeared to men. All of these appearances are made with the permission of God. Spirits, either angelic or human, cannot just make their appearance whenever they wish, a truth I found very appealing, especially when I though about the matter as a kid.

Dr. Geraghty
