I once went on an induced hypno-trip thing to recall past lives.  The past life I recalled involved me being a man, losing my wife and struggling to care for 4 children on my own.  I ended up giving up the children to the state and then offed myself in a wretched state of guilt longing for hell.  Was that a good past life?

out of curosity how did you respond to that recollection?  I mean I don't believe in such things, past lives and stuff.  To me it seems like a lot of the things are induced by the practiconers.  I think the mind can be easily fooled in thinking a lot of things.  At least I have been fooled one time many times.

I was very deeply saddened and I came out of it balling my eyes out.  I really think it was an induced dream of sorts, and the information contained within was something that in retrospect, paralleled my own self-hatred and suicidal tendencies that I was doing my best to ignore at the time.  I think it was perhaps a way for my subconscious to speak to me.

As my daughter and I were leaving the hospital, the nurse asked if there was a good church nearby. I recommended one and then asked where she was attending. She said (paraphrasing), "Oh, I'm going to First United Methodist downtown. They have a good community and communion [sic] about twice a month." As I was picking my jaw up off the ground, I said, "You know that it's just bread and wine, not the Body and Blood of Christ, right?" She said, "It is. Why?" I replied, "Because methodists don't have a valid priesthood." SHE HAD NO IDEA! This woman is in her upper 60s and should know better. She stated that she doesn't attend the local Catholic church anymore because she doesn't like the "circus." I immediately prayed for her and told her, "Whatever you do, don't leave the Church." Maybe she already has.

Offer to take her to your TLM!

I know folks her age that were told that it was no longer important to attend Sunday Mass to be a good Catholic. I know folks older than her who have been taught and now believe it doesn't matter if you're a Methodist or a Lutheran, or a Catholic, all roads lead to heaven.I get my sixty year old butt in trouble every time I hear this stuff and try to correct what I hear. I have had zero success over the years, and I've tried a few different approaches.
