Meet a modern-day pastor who casts out demons

‘It’s real. They are real, and they are powerful.’

She was the world’s only fat and ugly fashion model.

Or so she thought. The mirror said otherwise. But no one could convince her. In reality, she was slender and stunning. Extremely in demand. Extremely successful. Extremely well paid. She lived the “good life” so many only dream about – rich, successful and beautiful. But she was bedeviled by an illusion.

She couldn’t see Continue reading

Calls for exorcism in Italy are sharply on the rise, with some church experts even calling the shortage of exorcists an “emergency.”

Father Vincenzo Taraborelli, the new Vatican head exorcist who replaced recently deceased Fr. Gabriele Amorth, says the request for exorcisms in Italy this year alone have exceeded 500,000, and there are not enough exorcists to fulfill the demand.

He commented, “There are only nine of us left and many more are needed. We need other priests like me to meet the needs of so many families.” Father Vincenzo he sees about 30 people a day.

Valter Cascioli, a psychologist and scientific consultant to the International Association of Exorcists, commented, Continue reading

An Exorcist Explains How to Protect Yourself Against Demonic Harassment

National Catholic Register

“People think they have to do something extraordinary, but it is actually the very ordinary things that build up graces and offer protection. If a Catholic is praying, going to Mass, and receiving the sacraments, then the devil is already on the run.”
The battle rages on against “the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil” (Ephesians 6:12). The devil’s main activity is tempting us to sin but that rarely rankles us. It’s when things go bump in the night that people are shaken up.

If the devil is making his presence felt, an exorcist is often called Continue reading

Exorcism in Italy a job ‘too scary’ for young priests

By James Reynolds
BBC News, Rome

“That is a possessed woman there,” says Fr Vincenzo Taraborelli as he points up to an 18th Century fresco in his Roman church. “They’re holding her with her mouth open. She has little devils coming out of her body. She’s being freed.”
It is a scene the 79-year-old priest says he knows well. For the past 27 years, Fr Taraborelli has performed exorcisms – the Catholic rite of expelling evil spirits.
He stumbled into the job when a fellow priest needed help.
“I didn’t know what it was, I hadn’t studied it,” the father says. “He told me what to do. I was totally ignorant.” Continue reading

There’s a scene from one of those movies about exorcism where the priest, a fictional Jesuit played by Anthony Hopkins, is performing the ritual when his cellphone rings. “Father” Hopkins picks up the phone with his left hand and talks into it as his outstretched right arm continues to drive out the demon that has possessed the young woman he is trying to heal and make whole again.

Years earlier, the first and most Continue reading

Why the death of Fr. Gabriel Amorth is such a loss for the Church

We need men who fear nothing except God standing up against the deconstructionists and dissenters who claim that all that happened prior to 1965 in the Church was an embarrassment.

by Brian O’Neel, September 20, 2016 Catholic World Report

This past Friday brought sad tidings, the news of the passing of yet another person of note in a year when there seems to have been a great preponderance of last breaths drawn by those who have shaped our culture and world.

And yet this passing will likely be noted by few in the world outside the Catholic Church. While unfortunate, it’s sadder that many even within the Church will take little note of the fact that this giant is no longer with us. He was a man and, more important still, a loyal follower of Christ, going wherever it was that conscience and the Magisterium told him to go.

That man is Continue reading
