2. How Reliable Are the Entries?


What Are the Sources of the Data?

Every effort is made to assure the accuracy of information presented, but limitations persist. The Official Catholic Directory, eparchial and parish websites, and other on-line and print resources were consulted in compiling  the entry data. Ongoing, we depend on our users to identify errors, provide missing information, and update us. Schedules should be verified in advance, particularly for Feasts and seasonal considerations.


Presently, the following listings are complete, although software changes currently in process have had some negative effects on entries. We're working to remedy those.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Demons often transform themselves into angels of light and take the form of martyrs, and make it appear to us during sleep that we are in communication with them. Then, when we wake up, they plunge us into unholy joy and conceit. But you can detect their deceit by this very fact. For angles reveal torments, judgments and separations; and when we wake up we find that we are trembling and sad. As soon as we begin to believe the demons in dreams, then they make sport of us when we are awake too. He who believes in dreams is completely inexperienced. 'But he who distrusts all dreams is a wise man. Only believe dreams that warn you of torments and judgments. But if despair afflicts you, then such dreams are also from demons.
