The Vatican’s Spiritual Approval

I just learned that the Vatican approves of our talking to deceased loved ones. The Reverend Gino Concetti, chief theological commentator for the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore, told the British newspaper The Observer: “Communication is possible between those who live on this earth and those who live in a state of eternal repose, in heaven or purgatory. It may even be that God let’s our loved ones send us messages to guide us at certain moments in our life.” To illustrate this point, he quoted the dying St. Dominic telling his brothers: “Do not weep, for I shall be more useful to you after my death and I shall help you then more effectively than during my life.”  He also added that dead relatives could be responsible for prompting ‘impulses’ and triggering ‘inspirations’ and ‘sensory manifestations’ such as appearances in dreams. Now there’s a fillip from a most unexpected quarter.
