What is the Church’s position on Ghosts? I’m under the impression that they are of demonic origin, especially the more hostile ones (like poltergeists, etc.). But, I’ve also heard of so-called “nice” ghosts that aren’t hostile towards people.
For example, someone I’m acquainted with someone who claims that she lived in a house that was haunted by the ghost of a child who apparently lived in late 1800’s or early 1900’s and was benevolent and even sometimes appeared and spoke to this woman and her husband. So, I was curious: what do you make of these “benevolent ghosts”?
