Anonymous asked: What do you actually think of Halloween? You post things suggesting that it's a kind of special day, and in my country catholics declare that it's a pagan and evil feast and no one should celebrate this. I wonder if it's just a question of tradition (Halloween came to Poland just a few years ago, mainly as a commercial happening), or everybody is exaggerating, or I didn't understand your posts?

which country is this?

Halloween is not evil in itself…its original purpose has been corrupted to the point that it is now seen as evil.

It’s a bit like saying the upside-down cross is evil…it’s not - it was originally the cross of St Peter, who when being matyred, declared that he was not worthy to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus Christ, and requested that he is crucified upside-down.  Unfortunately, the inverted cross now is only known for being evil

Anonymous asked: Hello! I was wondering, according to you : am I going to hell ? (I'm a protestant) God bless you!

according to me?  I never said anyone is going to hell.   lol

on a more serious note - only God knows who will make it heaven.  Some of us (eg saints etc) will go to heaven; others will end up in purgatory to be refined before they can be allowed into heaven…..perhaps, others will go to hell?  God has the final say -  however, why take a chance?

Be a saint!  what else is there?!  #StraightPassToHeaven

10 Traditional Catholic Practices To Get Out Of Habitual Sin Especially Of The Flesh

…4) Devotion to the Virgin Mary.  Mary is the mediatrix of all graces coming from God.  If we run to her in times of temptation, “No one has ever invoked her in his necessity without being heard” (St. Bernard).  She is virginal purity and wants to help us stay pure.  Say Hail Marys until the strong temptation passes.  It may literally take hundreds a day, but it is worth it…
