Soul and Children
Question from mae Asbucan on 12/31/2013:

How do you explain to a 4 year old child what a soul is? Her mom is a protestant and her dad a muslim. Father is very strict in his islam religion. This is really important. The child is my niece.

Thanks in advance.

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 1/11/2014:

Dear Mae,

Tell the child that the soul is what makes us live after we dies. Before we dies, we have a soul in our body. After we die, we have a soul without a body. On the Day of the Last Judgment good people will have glorified bodies united to their souls,

Dr. Geraghty
