Matter-of-fact Exorcism Guide fr. Rome's Chief exorcist

Posted by webprayze Admin on June 1, 2011 at 10:00 PM

Our own experience with this site bears out the observation of Father Gabriele Amorth-- 86-year-old chief exorcist of the Diocese of Rome who has perrformed 70,000 exorcisms over the past 26 years--that the need for this extraodinary rite of the church or intevention is on the rise worldwide especially among the young.  Exorcism and other associated words have  figured among this site's top searches and hits and continue to do so, and requests for prayer and intercession for those seeking relief from similar conditions and afflictions have also been consistent.  Father Amorth's findings along with a "matter-of-fact guide everybody can use in the fight against Satan" are explored in the following CNA/EWTN News report... 



Rome’s exorcist finding Bl. John Paul II effective against Satan

Rome, Italy, May 17, 2011 / 03:27 pm (CNA/EWTN News) - The chief exorcist of Rome is seeing a rising number of young people coming under the influence of evil, but he has found in recent years that Blessed John Paul II is a powerful intercessor in the battle for souls.


A small, unassuming office in south-west Rome seems a rather ordinary setting in which to play out a grand battle between good and evil. It is here, though, that Father Gabriele Amorth has carried out most of his 70,000 exorcisms over the past 26 years.


“The world must know that Satan exists,” he told CNA recently. “The devil and demons are many and they have two powers, the ordinary and the extraordinary.”


The 86-year-old Italian priest of the Society of St. Paul and official exorcist for the Diocese of Rome explained the difference.


“The so-called ordinary power is that of tempting man to distance himself from God and take him to Hell. This action is exercised against all men and women of all places and religions.”


As for the extraordinary powers used by Satan, Fr. Amorth explained it as how the Devil acts when he focuses his attention more specifically on a person. He categorized the expression of that attention into four types: diabolical possession; diabolical vexation like in the case of Padre Pio, who was beaten by the Devil; obsessions which are able to lead a person to desperation and infestation, and when the Devil occupies a space, an animal or even an object.”


Fr. Amorth says such extraordinary occurrences are rare but on the rise. He's particularly worried by the number of young people being affected by Satan through sects, séances and drugs. He never despairs though.


“With Jesus Christ and Mary, God has promised us that he will never allow temptations greater than our strengths.”


Hence he gives a very matter-of-fact guide that everybody can use in the fight against Satan.


“The temptations of the Devil are defeated first of all by avoiding occasions (of temptation), because the Devil always seeks out our weakest points. And, then, with prayer. We Christians have an advantage because we have the Word of Jesus, we have the sacraments, prayer to God.”



Blessed Pope John Paul The Great

Not surprisingly, ‘Jesus Christ’ is the name Fr. Amorth most often calls upon to expel demons. But he also turns to saintly men and women for their heavenly assistance. Interestingly, he said that in recent years one man – Blessed Pope John Paul II – has proved to be a particularly powerful intercessor.


“I have asked the demon more than once, ‘Why are you so scared of John Paul II and I have had two different responses, both interesting. One, ‘because he disrupted my plans.’ And, I think that he is referring to the fall of communism in Russia and Eastern Europe. The collapse of communism.”


“Another response that he gave me, ‘because he pulled so many young people from my hands.’ There are so many young people who, thanks to John Paul II, were converted. Perhaps some were already Christian but not practicing, but then with John Paul II they came back to the practice. ‘He pulled so many young people out of my hands.’”


And the most powerful intercessor of all?


“Of course, the Madonna is even more effective. Ah, when you invoke Mary!” (boldface ours)


Our Lady of Guadalupe


“And, once I also asked Satan, ‘but why are you more scared when I invoke Our Lady than when I invoke Jesus Christ?’ He answered me, ‘Because I am more humiliated to be defeated by a human creature than being defeated by him.”


The intercession of the living is also important, though, says Fr. Amorth. He reminds people that exorcism is a prayer and, as such, Christians can pray to liberate a soul or place from the Devil. However, three things are needed.


“The Lord gave them (the Apostles) an answer that also for us exorcists is very important. He said that overcoming this type of demon, you need much faith, much prayer and much fasting. Faith, prayer and fasting.”


“Especially faith, you need so much faith. Many times also in the healings, Jesus does not say in the Gospel it is me who has healed you. He says, you are healed thanks to your faith. He wants faith in the people, a strong and absolute faith. Without faith you can do nothing.”

I am one of the most ardent followers of blessed Pope John Paul, II. he visited us in the Philippines twice during his lifetime and for this we were truly very fortunate. I was one of the millions who witnessed and saw him in the flesh, one cannot help but admire his evident love and concern for us. He said that being the only Christian and catholic country in the whole of Asia, we filipinos were the new apostles of Christ. Now that has happened because we filipinos are scattered in almost all countries in the world, filling up once sparsely attended churches in Europe, Africa, the USA and even in the former Soviet Union. Indeed, true to the words of Blessed John Paul, we are spreading Gods truth and love worldwide.
