Cardinal Rouco Appoints Eight New Exorcists for Archdiocese of Madrid

(Madrid), Cardinal Antonio María Rouco Varela, Archbishop of Madrid, has appointed eight new exorcists for his diocese, which also includes Spain's capital. The decision "is a precedent for the whole of Spain", something it had not yet seen in history, said the Spanish Catholic website Religion y Libertad.

The appointment was linked to an increased demand in the archdiocese, but also with increased requests for help from other Diocese that have no exorcist. The number of victims of esoteric and occult ritual practices has grown significantly as a result of de-Christianization. The symptoms of "demonic contagion" were evident as RYL on the reasons for the decision of the archbishop. The eight exorcists already are in the introductory phases of training to prepare them for the new task. The coordination was transferred to Bishop Cesar Franco, one of the three auxiliary bishops of Madrid. The basis of education is the approved exorcism ritual Pope John Paul II in 1998. In addition, the future exorcists study also that of Pope Paul V of 1614 and especially that of Pope Pius XII of 1952, referred to by Don Gabriele Amorth as "much more efficient than the current" and that it, as the doyen of Exorcists says, "is still valid." The new ritual does not abrogate the the previous, and can be used after an appropriate application to the diocesan bishop and the Holy See, said Don Amorth.

Shortly after his appointment as Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Angelo Scola, the former Patriarch of Venice, doubled the number of exorcists for his diocese from six to twelve.

Cardinal Scola Doubles the Number of Exorcists in the Archdiocese of Milan

(Mailand) "The Devil? He appears rarely in Milan, but sometimes still", writes the the Vaticanist Paolo Rodari about the city of St. Ambrosius and Charles Borromeo.  The number of people, who day for day use the Archdiocesan clergy offices, because they think, that they have been possessed by the devil or concerned about a person close to them, are steadily rising.

The requests are so numerous, that the Archbishop Angelo Cardinal Scola is adding the College of Exorcists in the Archdiocese and doubling their number through new appointments.  In the mean time the largest Diocese in the world doesn't have 6 exorcists, but 12 exorcists.

"As the inquiries show, the desire has doubled also,"  says Msgr. Angelo Mascheroni, Auxiliary Bishop of Milan and the one responsible as Director of College of Exorcists since 1995.  "There are so many questions, that we had to establish a telephone bank as the first point of contact."  This first telephone contact number gives information, offers the initial information and views the incoming questions according to various criteria, above all according to the principle of location, to spare the sufferer from a long journey.

How does the Devil show himself?, asks Rodari.  "I always ask fundamentally, if the affected person had visited sorcerers to whom they may have paid money to before they turned to us.  I also ask if they have been to a specialist, who can sometimes diagnose a psychic problem.  Finally,  it is also concerned with protect the relatives, where sometimes the parents, siblings or children can persist, that the devil is in play.'  The highest mission of the Exorcist is to be attentive and give consolation, where they are most concerned with experiences of broken people, who curse their neighbors.  It is appropriate to treat all with objectivity and to redirect to give these people notably the right view on reality, above all also the security, that the Lord is always greater and more powerful than the Devil.  The truly diabolical appearances are very rare in my experience."

Who turns to an exorcist? "The young and the old, men and women, people of various levels of education from those with the most elementary educations to academics.  Most call relatives near them, for the children and the youth, the parents.  They report that their son or their daughter rebels, and will not go to school any longer, takes drugs.  In the great majority of the cases there is no possession.  It involves natural generational conflicts much more in the development of youth.  It doesn't have to do with the actual calls for help, where the youth and the parents learn correct ways of interacting, in order to master a period of transition common to al.  It is therefore important to ask the seven questions, in order then to help notably, by recognizing real demonic appearances.  Msgr Lorenzo Longoni, a famous Exorcist says, that in his life he's only conducted one real Exorcism."

Polish Church Launches Magazine on Exorcism

(Warsaw) In Poland, the world's first magazine was published on exorcism, which is at news stands. The monthly magazine titled Egzorcysta (Exorcist), whose first edition was printed in an edition of 15,000 copies, has 62 pages.

Some Polish Catholic priests were brought together by a publisher to launch the magazine project, according reports by the Agence France Presse. The magazine costs 10 zloty, which works out at approximately 2, 3 Euros. The headlines of the first edition are "Satan, a Reality" and "New Age, the Spiritual Vacuum". Poland currently has 120 priests who are officially appointed as exorcists, as the priest Aleksander Posacki, professor of philosophy and theology, a demonologist and exorcist, explained on Monday at a press conference, in which the magazine was presented.

15 years ago there were only four official exorcists in Poland, says Posacki. This large increase was put in context by the priest that has tried in one of the most Catholic countries in Europe to expel Godless Communism with turbo-capitalism after 1989. Capitalism creates a market of opportunities and with it the opportunity to make the occult shops.

Aleksander Posacki is a member of an international Exorcist Commission of the Catholic Church. At the press conference he pointed out the inability of the various schools of psychology and psychiatry to deal with the phenomenon of possession and Umsessenheit because conventional treatments do not help.

Another Exorcist and staff of the new journal, the priest Andryej Grefkowicz, said that there were so many requests that the waiting time in Warsaw amounts to three months. The priests work with psychiatrists to first rule out the possibility of a mental illness. "I always consult a psychiatrist, if I have doubts then we often come together to the conclusion that it is a mental illness and not a form of obsession," said Grefkowicz.

In contrast to swindlers or providers of occult practices who may even be the cause of an obsession, who are paid substantial amounts by gullible or desperate persons, there is the offer of help from the Church through prayer, confession, forgiveness, or by exorcism, which is completely free, say the two priests.

Suppress Now: Jesuits Continue to Evade their Duty

How Jesuits Act When Liberation Theology is

Edit: There's an old maxim that the corruption of the best is the worst.  That's the case with the increasingly decadent and conforming Jesuit Society.

And you people complain about the Society of St. Pius X?

The writer William Blatty  , who wrote 'The Exorcist', has responded to them by invoking canon law.  The Jesuits have invited a pro-abortion speaker to have a position of honor speaking at their commencement ceremony.  It's nothing short of scandalous.  Imagine, having such a defining moment besmirched by the appearance of a Marxist operative like Sibelius.

Yet the Jesuits seem as determined as ever to ignore their duty as much as they ignore anyone else who tries to remind them of how much they've departed from their true function.

We were unable to get a statement from James Martin SJ as of yet.  He's too busy defending elitist, big charity nuns.

Even the Washington Archdiocese thought this was a bad thing.  How about an interdict?

We aren't the only ones calling for an exorcism, except, we're serious.  They really do need it and a quick visitation by Dominican Inquisitors.

Demons Driven Out During Papal Audience

The Vatican quakes at the knees by the thought that the incident could become known.

Father Amorth's new book cover in Italian

( Pope Benedict XVI. had driven the devil from two men at a Papal audience in 2009 at St. Peter's Square.

This is what famous Roman exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth said in his new book "The Last Exorcist".

The Italian boulevard magazine 'Panorama' published the excerpt yesterday.

Thrown back three meters

Father Amorth described them both by their first nnames Giovanni and Marco.

Two attendants brought the men to the Wednesday audience at St. Peter's Square. They were located in the section which is reserved for the handicapped.

While waiting for the arrival of the Holy Father, they were increasingly disturbed.

As Benedict XVI. neared them in the Popemobile, they men were thrown on the ground, struck their heads on the earth and began to wail.

As the Pope held his hand outside of the car to raise in blessing, the men were hurled back three meters.

Finally, they became calm.

Fear of the rage of the demoniac

The speaker for the Vatican, Father Federico Lombardi, indirectly described the incident.

E said that the Pope had not known that there were two demoniacs were present at St. Peter's Square on that day.

Then he proceeded quickly to downplay the incident:  If the fact was really true, one could not speak of a spiritual cleansing by the Pope.

Because he had "no intention" to conduct an exorcism.

Actually, that's not really true.  Because every blessing has an exorcising function.

The Vatican fears that the case being widely discussed could subsequently bring throngs of possessed  to the Vatican as pilgrims.

That would be a significant disturbance of the normal course of Wednesday audiences

Doyen of Exorcists Dies -- Sicilian Franciscan Served Thousands

Doyen  of Exorcists Dies - Father Matteo La Grua, "Am just a servant of my Lord"

(Palermo) Yesterday Father Matteo La Grua was burried in Palermo, Sicily. The world-class Exorcist belonged to the Friars Minor. Father La Grua was a judge at the Supreme Court in Church of the Sacred Rota in Rome, a professor of ascetical and mystical theology at the College of the Franciscan Order and the Archbishop's Seminary of Palermo. These are just a few key words describing the rich work of the Franciscan, who was a spiritual guide to thousands of believers. Father La Grua represented a Franciscan  who strove always while returning to the origin of the Order in St. Francis of Assisi. A permanent opening of the man towards brotherhood, peace, hospitality and total dedication to the ordained priesthood. Father Matteo La Grua was at the international level, the doyen of the exorcists of the Catholic Church. In 1975 he was appointed by Cardinal Salvatore Pappalardo, Archbishop of Palermo.  As his confessor, Father La Grua was entrusted with the spiritual leadership of the Charismatic Renewal of the Archdiocese.
His Successor as exorcist of the Archdiocese of Palermo is now the Franciscan Fra Benigno, a disciple and companion of Father La Grua. The Exorcist was considered by the Franciscans of Palermo as a "living patron saint" of their city torn by crime and the mafia. He saw himself only as  a "servant of the Lord" with the command to "go"  comfort and heal. Accordingly, he saw his main task as a special confessor and as an exorcist. When asked about cases of demonic possession, Father Matteo replied stereotypically with the sentence: "I'm not going to discuss it." But he was eager to discuss evil and the demonic activity in the world.
Father Matteo La Grua was born on 14 February 1914 in Castelbuono, Sicily, close to the magnificent Norman cathedral of Cafalù. After joining the Friars Minor he was ordained priest in 1937. According to church law, he was already "retired". "For a priest, there is no retirement," he used to respond to those inquiries who asked why an over 90-year-old was still so active. Last Sunday, Father La Grua died shortly before his 98th Birthday in Palermo.

Does Vienna Allow Exorcisms or Not?

Edit: the Old Liberal Creep-Politik refers to the tendency of these people to utilize sophistries and ambiguities to conceal their true motives and intentions with respect to dealing with crises in the Church and present a false face.  It usually relates, as in this case, to their incapacity to give clear yes or no questions to simple issues like the following.

Exorcism: The Creep-Politik is at Work

Will the Archdiocese of Vienna perform exorcisms or not? In such clear questions you really don't get any clear answers.
Demons on a window at Magdalen Church in Oxford

(, Wien) On the end of September the extreme-left Viennese weekly 'Falter', reported that a Viennese Exorcist is working in a State-run hospital.

The Archdiocese was quick to deny this report.

On Monday Wolfgang Bergmann commented on the denial in the anti-Catholic daily 'Standard'.

Bergman holds a degree in theology and is a current 'Standard' general manager.

A spicy detail: he was an enemy of the Church as the press spokesman for the Archdiocese of Vienna from 1996 to 1999.

Christ Cast Out Demons

Bergman concludes from the denial that the Archdiocese of Vienna performs exorcisms outside of State-run hospitals.

At the same time he notes that the Archdiocesan web site does no mention exporcism at any point.

The Church-hater went still further afield by saying that the press release only speaks of "deliverance prayers":

"That's so they can avoid using the scandal-ridden term 'Exoricism'" -- he insisted.

Bergman took the Church's denial lightly.

It asserts casually that cases of actual possession are allegedly "considered to be very rare".

Bergman countered: "The trivial >>seldom<< should probably obscure that the Cardinal -- seldom or not -- sees a real danger where a person could become possessed by a demon." At this point, things become exiting for Berger. Why is the Archdiocese of no Help?

Bergmann believes -- even if ex officio -- that there is an expectation that people can be possessed by demons.

Still, he's concerned for the possessed in a sophistical way.

If even there were only a small danger present, according to Bergman, there would be a pressing need to offer an education campaign by the Church.

In this case all of the secrecy surrounding exorcism is a "Scandal" for him.

Bergman suspects that Cardinal Christoph Graf von Schönborn "means to be serious" about exorcism -- but he lacks the courage to have an education campaign.

Of course, at the end of the article -- without any connection -- a pinch of the abuse-hoax is sprinkled into the text.

Exorcism and Immemorial Mass in Phillipines Against Blasphemous Art

[Catholic Conference of Phillipines Website] MANILA, August 14, 2011— An exorcist has led a ritual outside the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Sunday to ask for God’s forgiveness for those who “dishonored the image of Christ.”
Fr. Michelle Joe Zerrudo of the Diocese of Cubao said the prayer was being offered to compensate for whatever has been done to God by those behind the controversial art exhibit at the CCP.
“This is an act of love for God to make up for the lack of love. This is not a political rally but simply a religions event,” Zerrudo said.

Catholic Priest and Exorcist Thomas J. Euteneuer on Performing Exorcisms

[Opposing Views] Obscured by rumor and myth, and confused by exaggerations and outright falsehoods in popular movies, the Catholic Church's ancient rite of exorcism is not only still practiced today, but is needed more than ever, writes pro-life leader, Catholic priest and exorcist Reverend Thomas J. Euteneuer in his new book, Exorcism and the Church Militant.

"The Church has good reason to avoid popularizing exorcism, and affirming the sensationalist or dismissive accounts of the culture at large," said Father Euteneuer. "At the same time, this necessary discretion has led to the rite being neglected in many areas, at precisely the time when it is most needed to deliver those who have succumbed to the increasing deceptions of the devil in these troubling times."

Father Euteneuer, President of Human Life International, has conducted exorcisms in several dioceses around the United States and spoken to thousands of people on this subject. He seeks to build up the faith of people through accurate teaching on this controversial topic.

"With Exorcism and the Church Militant I hope to undo myths and misunderstandings surrounding exorcism, and issue a call to my brother priests and our faithful bishops," said Father Euteneuer. "Our culture is ever more saturated with enticements to the occult and other dangerous spiritual and moral choices. Clarifying what exorcism is and underlining the urgency for both clergy and the faithful is key if we're going to start confronting Satan where he is making so much headway, in our homes and communities."

With Exorcism and the Church Militant, Father Euteneuer is also releasing Demonic Abortion, the first of two companion works. This 120-page booklet is a meditation on the evil nature of the abortion industry, from the perspective of a priest and exorcist who has been fighting in the pro-life trenches around the world for well over a decade. With a release date of July 7, 2010, Demonic Abortion is now available for pre-order.

More information about both Exorcism and the Church Militant and Demonic Abortion can be found at

About the Author:
Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer was ordained a priest in 1988 for the Diocese of Palm Beach, Florida and served in parishes in that diocese for twelve years before being given permission by his bishop to work full-time in pro-life ministry with Human Life International, where he has served as President since December of the year 2000. Father Euteneuer has been performing exorcisms for seven years with approval from numerous dioceses in the United States. His interest in the ministry was a natural outgrowth of his work in the pro-life field, which deals with the organized power of evil on a global scale.
