The Vatican is looking into a group of exorcists who made a pact with Satan on climate change and the death of Pope Francis. This came about after a video of the Brazil-based group, known as Heralds of the Gospel, emerged online that revealed chilling information of a cataclysmic event and the pontiff’s death.

The devil worshippers look up to their former leader, Dr. Plinio Correa de Oliveira, who they believe is in close contact with Satan, after his death in 1995. Currently, they are led by 77-year-old João Scognamiglio Clá Dias who reportedly resigned as superior general last week but continues to be the “father” of the institute.

The footage was taken at an occasion called “a gathering of priests to share experiences of exorcism” that was attended by about 60 of the occult’s priests. In the video, Dias was shown listening to one member read from a transcript of a purported conversation between the exorcists and the devil.

The transcript described Continue reading

Mosaic reader Lynn Goucher writes:

I am a Jew by choice, who converted formally a little over a year ago. I was raised in a secular Christian home and have always been perplexed and somewhat disgusted by the Christian obsession with the devil. Although Christians insist that the devil appears in the Torah, my understanding is that the biblical Hebrew word satan, from which comes the name Satan, has been mistranslated as “devil” when it really means “obstacle.” Am I right or wrong?

The answer is: both. It depends partly on which books and periods of the biblical corpus one is looking at; Continue reading

COMMENTARY: Faced with the activity of supernatural evil in our countries what should be the response of faithful bishops, priests and laity?

by DEACON NICK DONNELLY 07/31/2015 for the National Catholic Register

Homosexual activists have succeeded in persuading the ruling elites to use the power of the State, media and big business to successfully campaign for the legalization of same-sex “marriage.”

A government minister of Ireland, one of the most pro-life countries of the world, has announced with satisfaction the killing of 26 babies in 2014 as a result of Prime Minster Enda Kenny’s abortion law. These are the first “legal” abortions ever conducted in the Republic of Ireland. A majority in the U.K. House of Commons, which prides itself on promoting feminism, voted down a motion to protect baby girls from Continue reading
