An Excorcist

  •  Is an exorcist afraid? What is the devil's favorite sin? These and other questions were tackled in an interview with the Dominican priest, Father Juan José Gallego, an exorcist from the Archdiocese of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain.
    Almost a decade after Fr. Gallego was appointed as exorcist, he was interviewed by the Spanish daily El Mundo. The priest said that in his experience, pride is the sin the devil likes the most.
    “Have you ever been afraid?” the interviewer asked.
    “In the beginning I had a lot of fear,” Fr. Gallego replied. “All I had to do was look over my shoulder and I saw demons… the other day I was doing an exorcism, ‘I command you! I order you!’…and the Evil One, with a loud voice fires back at me: ‘Galleeeego, you’re over-doooing it.’ That shook me.”
    Nevertheless, he knows that the devil is not more powerful than God. The exorcist recalled that “when they appointed me, a relative told me, ‘Whoa, Juan José, I’m really afraid, because in the movie ‘The Exorcist,’ one person died and the other threw himself through a window. I said to her ‘Don’t forget that the devil is (just a) creature of God.’”
    When people are possessed, he added, “they lose consciousness, they speak strange languages, they have inordinate strength, they feel really bad, you see very well-mannered people vomiting and blaspheming.”
    “There was a boy whom the demon would set his shirt on fire at night and things like that. He told me what the demons were proposing him to do: If you make a pact with us, you’ll never have to go through any more of what you’re going through now.”
    Father Gallego also warned that “New Age” practices like reiki and some yoga can be points of entry for the demons. He also said that addictions are “a type of possession.”
    “When people are going through a crisis they suffer more. They can feel hopeless. People feel like they’ve got the devil inside,” he said.

  • I think many of us could use a good exorcism. 
    I know I would.  
    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)

  • First Satan exist. Jesus name him.
    Satan, Mamon, some other have names in the bible, I don't remember their name.

    I came to realize this:
    They are powerful. And they can do anything. Anything we can't imagine (in therm of visual effect and sound, smell, in our head and outside). Name it, but even if we saw everything, he can do more. 

    It's like humans we thing we are so creative with art: and we get impressed with a painting or something. He can do so much more. That is how he impressed Evan and Adam (not through Art). 

    For example, where I am from, in the newspaper an exorcist was chased by a car with no driver. Well it remind us a movie, but it was not a movie this time.

    One time I meet an exorcist. And he said something about fear: if you fear you will be attacked physically during an exorcist. But the stole (étole in French) is what protected him during an exorcist, when a fireball felt on him once. Since I know why they where them during confession too.

    Sacrements are very powerful too, but that is another subject.

    This is great. You're fluent in French! I hope you can answer some questions for me.
    .
    Beelzebub is another one, the Lord of the Flies. I guess he dwells in rotting flesh.
    .
    I don't think I'll ever forget your explanation that stole is étole in French. But I have no idea what that sounds like.
    Do you pronounce the "l?" Does the "t" sound like it does in English? Is the é long, short or silent; is it louder because of the accent mark?
    .
    That driverless car you read about in the newspaper won't seem so strange in a year or two!
    .
    Here's one for you -- can you please write the words for the Sign of the Cross in French and explain them, SIgneDeLaCroix? And why did you use an upper case i in Signe? From what I've heard, it seems like "In nom du Pere du Fis du Sans Esprit, ensesuatelle." Am I way off?

    Satan is still a creature who must bend the knee when the name of Jesus is mentioned.
