    In the 1973 film "The Exorcist" Father Lankester Merrin (Max von Sydow) prays over the possessed child Regan (Linda Blair) Recently, a young Catholic scientist was talking to a nun who was a school principal at a Catholic elementary school about the scientist’s son going to her school. During the conversation the subject of “hell” came up and the school principal assured the father that his son would not be tormented by such a notion because “hell does not exist,” she said.Somewhat stunned by the nun’s comment, the scientist, who had actually read and assimilated the Bible with a scientific...

    The new and highly informative book by U.S. exorcist Father Thomas J. Euteneuer might be called "everything you wanted to know about exorcism but didn't know who to ask." Its actual title is Exorcism and the Church Militant, and in it the priest, who also heads Human Life International, covers most major aspects of deliverance from evil spirits -- the difference between a possession and an infestation, the role of laity in deliverance, development of the Church's exorcism rituals, how demons enter, the way they hide from the priest, how dioceses handle such cases, and so forth.

    KAMYSHIN, Russia, - A Russian woman wrote a letter to the pope requesting an exorcism for her town's mayor due to a standoff over housing. Svetlana Shults appealed to Rome after the mayor allegedly told her he would not include her in a government relocation program even if she wrote to the pope himself, the Moscow Times said Tuesday. The letter, which was also published in Shults' hometown paper, asked Pope Benedict XVI to dispatch exorcists to the town of Kamyshin to purge the mayor of whatever it was that was causing him to adamantly refuse her repeated requests. "My...

    Human Life International ^ | 6-25-10 | Father Thomas J. Euteneuer
    Exorcisms and AbusesOne of the three commands that Jesus gave to the disciples was to "drive out demons" (Mk 16:17) in His Name. "Heal the sick" and "preach the good news" (Lk 10:9) are regular ministries of the Church, but the ministry of exorcising demons has received less attention. It is my view that the next decade will force the Church - and priests in particular - to embrace this ministry of casting out demons with professionalism and zeal as we will have to deal with the nuclear fallout of the pervasive occultism in our society now. In order to...

    Vatican City, 17 June (AKI) - The Catholic Church's most famous exorcist says more should be done to fight the devil. Father Gabriele Amorth has conducted 70,000 exorcisms for the church during his lengthy career. In an interview with Italian daily, Corriere Della Sera, the 85-year-old priest said it would be worth extending the practice of exorcism. "It would not be a bad idea," he told the daily. "In Italy moral decay is evident. Families are often breaking down. "Do you know what I would do if I was the Pope for a moment?" he asked. "I would provide every...

    The Real Presence Association ^ | Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
    1673 When the Church asks publicly and authoritatively in the name of Jesus Christ that a person or object be protected against the power of the Evil One and withdrawn from his dominion, it is called exorcism. Jesus performed exorcisms and from him the Church has received the power and office of exorcizing. In a simple form, exorcism is performed at the celebration of Baptism. The solemn exorcism, called "a major exorcism," can be performed only by a priest and with the permission of the bishop. The priest must proceed with prudence, strictly observing the rules established by the Church....

As a practicing exorcist, he discusses how a person may become possessed and what goes on during an exorcism. He also explains the connection between abortion and demonic possession, from the abortion demon's invitation into the US with the Supreme Court's passing of Roe v. Wade in 1973 to the ritualized sacrifice of unborn children that goes on in Planned Parenthood "clinics" today. Exorcism is "Christ's victory over the devil" and "the vocation of the Church Militant." Listen as Rev. Euteneuer strengthens your faith and...

    Linda Blair, Max Von Sydow and Jason Miller in the 1973 film The Exorcist (CNS Photo) An American exorcist has said the film The Exorcist led people to believe wrongly that the devil could "come and zap them" when in fact the devil is afraid of the power of Jesus inside them. Mgr John Esseff, retired exorcist of the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, told an audience of 400 students at Bowling Green State University, Ohio that the power of Jesus within them was "enormous". He said: "The devil is afraid of you - if you would just awaken to who...

The more powerful ones are over the less powerful ones.These demons have put up big fights, Father Thomas said, recollecting the episode. I think now we are...
