How do you know if a miracle is of God or of the devil?
Is missing Mass on Sunday a mortal sin and, if so, why? What is the authority of the Church to say that people are in a state of mortal sin when it seems like such a small thing?
Why do Catholics have to confess sins to a priest when Jesus died for our sins?
Purgatory is so logical to me. Since there is no love in hell, the love that a person has on earth, (let’s say he dies in mortal sin and is going to hell) has to be purged as well (something like an inverse Purgatory) it would seem to me. Can you comment? How can there be no love in hell?

Is it taught in the Church that you should abstain from meat that is sacrificed to idols or that has been strangled?
