Demonic influence?

  • I converted to Traditional Catholicism around 6 months ago from complete materialistic atheism, i wont go through the details because its not the most important at this post, and for reparation of my previous sinful life, I started at first since I couldnt find a Tridentine mass near praying the 15 mysteries of the Rosary and I noticed most times I would start to sweat and feel an unpleasant heat all over my body but I didnt bother at first then I had the grace of God to find a  SSPX chapel near me and I was very well treated and the people were very pious. And everytime I go to Mass I just experience very unconfortable situations, on the first Sunday I finally went to Mass I felt amazing but in that same night I was struck with horrible wicked dreams all night. In the meantime they asked me to become an acolyte for the next Masses and on the the second Sunday (my first one as an acolyte) I was struck again and in the same weak became ill. On the third Sunday (second one as an acolyte, this was Passion Sunday) while I was at the side of the altar on my knees I felt I was going to pass out because of the intense heat and sweating I was having I thought it was because I was rigth beside the canon candle. And finally on Palm Sunday I just could not handle the sweating and the heat and a layman had to help me go to the sacristy where I had to stop my part of the service, my acolyte colleagues had to resume without me. I dont want to seem like crazy but after this, a friend of mine who is one of the acolytes told me this could be work of the devil and I start to think it seems like it. Everytime I go to Mass to take part and assist the renewal of the sacrifice of our Lord it is a wonderful grace but I always get some random backlashes I do not expect. Could this be the work of demons trying to take me back to my previous sinful life while I constantly move further away from it?

  • No. How old are you? Sounds like you may be getting up there in age a bit.

  • Possibly.  Before your conversion had you been involved in any occult (even potentially latently occult) activities?

    What is the status of your Baptism?  Were you baptized in the Traditional Catholic Rite complete with the exorcisms?

  • I was never into anything occult at least with that specific intention. But I was baptised in the novus ordus so I never had the triple exorcisms and the complete Traditional Catholic Rite Baptism

  • It could also be Satan trying to get you to stay away from the Church.  A similar thing happened to me as a recent covert, only the repercussions were more immediate, like, in the middle of Mass, I'd have panic attacks and need to leave.  Once, I had such a horrible dream that I awoke barely able to breathe, terrified that if I merely got out of bed, I'd trip, fall, hit my head and die because I'd forgotten to confess a mortal sin from my distant past in confession the day before.  I called the rectory at 4:45 in the morning and to my amazement, I got the priest in person, no recording.  He heard me out and simply said, "It's a temptation."  Instantly, the fear and panic left.  He gave me a blessing and it was over.  
    You should definitely talk to a priest, however.  Is it possible your baptism was invalid?  Mine was fine because it was in 1956.

    I would request that the priest supply the missing rites and perhaps even perform conditional Baptism.  Who knows what some liberal clown might have done at your Baptism in lieu of a valid Catholic Baptism, as shenanigans are not unheard of in the Novus Ordo.

  • The devil exists. Be certain of that. But also remember that he is a chained dog. God has him firmly under control. There is no contest between God and satan (like in the fantasy supernatural movies). The devil lost a long time ago. The die is already cast.

    To guard against him, make sure you are in the state of grace, and make use of the prayers and sacramentals of the Catholic Church. I would recommend the St. Michael prayer, holy water, blessed rosaries, the Brown Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, the St. Benedict Medal (blessed by a Benedictine if possible) -- and a strong and true devotion to Our Lady.

    If you do this, you will have little to fear from the devil.
