Is Satan a Figment? … by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I was surprised to read, quite recently, an article put out last year, stating that Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, the Superior General of the Jesuits, a Roman Catholic order of priests, felt Satan to be a mass thought form, or thought construct, rather than a malignant entity …

I see the author of the article has taken a boldly opposing stance on this issue, as have others. For example, the very same day, Fr. Alexander Lucie-Smith published a rebuttal in the Catholic Herald …

There is a further, psychological notion that Satan may be the collective unconscious Shadow of the Personality. See my category: Shadow of our personality  … and also the category: Unconscious thought cloud of the world
