Should Catholics Celebrate Halloween?
“Celebrate Halloween is like celebrate the devil” – Fr. Amorth.
Father Gabriele Amorth, who has died aged 91, was probably the most well-known exorcist in the world.
He had condemned the celebration of Halloween and warned of a danger to young people, because of the increase in occult activity, which fuels insomnia, mental illness; depression and suicidal thoughts in children. “Psychiatrical and psychological studies show that children can’t sleep, are agitated, depressed, obsessed, suicidal”.
He said “Halloween is really a spiritual gathering presented as a form of game, and that is the equivalent of singing hosannas to the devil”
We should understand that a Pope, 843 years after Christ, Gregory IV, moved the feast of All Saints, which at that time was on May 13, to November 1, in order to stop this evil tradition which had arrived from Ireland of adoring the world of the dead.
Fr. Gabriele Amorth, performed an estimated 70,000 exorcisms, often repeating the rite on the same persons.
He counseled that the battle against evil begins in the family. The reason why many individuals become evil is often because so many young people “live without knowing the sacredness of being children” and therefore do not know what it means to be a good father or mother, he said.

Thank you for this valuable information. It’s time to say “No” to the world and “Yes” to Jesus who is the light, the truth and the way.
YES! Absolutely! Amen . God bless po 🙂
The only thing halloween stands for today to kids is candy. Telling people not to celebrate halloween is ridiculous.
We celebrate All Saints day. The modern halloween is the opposite of holyness. Don’t be afraid to go againts the current. God bless you 🙂
Yes of course, …and the only thing found in a mouse trap is delicious cheese! It may be that as children, Halloween only means costumes and candy for kids, but even simply what it promotes, goes against Christian teachings…and we grown ups should inform ourselves well about this ‘celebration’ and stop acting naïve…its roots are embedded in the world of spiritism and occult…fear, death, witches, devils – they do not lead to Jesus!
REALLY? So how come you chose anonymity in your response? Also; if it’s JUST about the candy then; how about going door to door on 31 OCT NOT dressed like a werewolf , vampire, bloody zombie, crazed psycho hatchet carrying killer wearing a hockey mask……. asking for CANDY! WAKE UP…….THAT night is called Halloween in reference to ALL HALLOWS EVE……not candy night…….it IS in fact a CELEBRATION of LOST souls …… Henceforth the tortured expression of each jack-o’-lanterns carved.
I repeat WAKE UP!!! Smell the FIRE the defeated evil one stokes.
Why go anonymous? Going anonymous speaks volumes. Evil hides. Truth DOES NOT
Though late it’s good to have such information
Such faith matters should be given priority especially when modern day youth think of devil nonexistent
I always hated the ugly costume. People should not look at it as funny but rather negative and scary. Fear itself is the devil. Fear festers on the human mind and body and depletes the state of mind and keeps the spirit of God away from you. Therefore I suggest every Christian or Non Christian never to take part in Halloween celebration

I’ve always understood Halloween to be about the Victory of Light Of Christ over the Devil. The day after Halloween is ‘All Saints’ Day.’
Halloween comes from the word Hallowe’en, or All Hallows’ Evening. All Hallows is archaic English for All the Saints (those who are hallowed, holy, wear ‘haloes’). All Saints Day is the day to celebrate all the saints together and takes place on 1 November. On the previous evening – e’en – people used to prepare for the processions of the following day by getting their saints’ costumes ready. In times past, and to an extent still in Catholic countries like Spain, people dressed as their favorite saint for the processions on All Saints Day. This is how the custom of getting into costumes began. But in recent centuries, as the influence of the Catholic Church waned in the West, the custom of dressing as saints was gradually replaced by the custom of dressing as witches, goblins, devils and other occult and macabre characters. How this change came about is not entirely clear. It is speculated that occultists also celebrate an important feast day on 31 October-1 November and their growing influence caused the focus to shift from saints to the demonic. Some researchers say it was a revival of an old pagan cult of the dead. Whatever the origin, human beings are naturally revolted by the demonic, and so it was necessary to introduce the demonic slowly and under the guise of fun and cuteness. More recently, the pretence of cuteness is fading and the horrendous, brutal face of Hell is becoming obvious. While the horrendous repels, it also fascinates, like the little bird who is about to be consumed by the cobra and instead of fleeing becomes helplessly mesmerised in front of the serpent. If we wish to oppose this effectively we have to offer a more attractive and interesting alternative.
And that was how we defeated the evil in the world wars. Let’s go cute and fuzzy! We are way past that point. It is time to get serious about the matter and bring TRUTH back to the people.
The devil will give reasons to justify evil intentions. Like I always say, he doesn’t come with a horn, he comes like a subtle voice trying to make man rationalize his actions. Men can only be wiser than the devil when he gets acquitted with the word of God.
Perhaps our holy priest at holy mass could speak about the reason for the eve of all souls day.
My dog always barked, with righteous indignation, at Halloween figures on people’s lawns.
Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Kudos, I appreciate it!
Fine way of describing, and fastidious paragraph to take information on the topic of
my presentation focus, which i am going to convey in institution of higher education.
Every year, a debate rages among Catholics and other Christians: Is Halloween a satanic holiday or merely a secular one? Should Catholic children dress up like ghosts and goblins, vampires and demons? Is it good for children to be scared? Lost in this debate is the history of Halloween, which, far from being a pagan religious event or a satanic holiday, is actually a Christian celebration that s almost 1,300 years old. Is Halloween Catholic?
