Now this does not mean I go around telling people their future. This is wrong. I mean I can dream about a plane crashing and then it will happen a month later, or my grandmother often dreamed about someone dying, how they would die, where and when--and this would happen. My father does the same thing.

I don't think these events are sinful in nature. I think the sin comes in when we misuse this ability to confuse others, or to take on an attitude of power and ability we don't have. (Fortune tellers.) Perhaps Caputo's priest is making a pastoral decision that amounts to believing she means no harm, and that she does have some sort of spiritual gift.

What about Cure' d'Ares or Padre Pio knowing peoples sins even before they confessed? What about bi-location in Padre Pio's case? Levitation? (Often thought to be magic or of the dark arts.) How do we explain all of this, or can we?

I am not too worried about Theresa Caputo.
I agree. I've been told things by psychics that they'd have no way of knowing. I don't structure my life around running to one every time there is a decision to be made. I think some people have gifts and if they're used for good then there isn't a problem.

I also relate the gift with that of Simon, the elderly man who met the Holy Family at the temple and the widowed lady who did the same. Both told things to Mary and Joseph about Jesus and the future. I'd say Simon was psychic. And he didn't hesitate telling Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. I would not have wanted to have heard that.
