    The renowned exorcist, Pauline Father Gabriele Amorth, has died at the age of 91.

    A priest of the diocese of Rome, Father Amorth was admitted to hospital a few weeks ago suffering from pulmonary complications, according to Italian media reports.

    His death was announced by the San Paolo group which has published many of his books.

    Born in Modena on May 1, 1925, Gabriele Amorth entered the Pauline congregation in Alba in 1947, five years after meeting its founder, Blessed Giacomo Alberione.  Ordained in 1951, he was appointed exorcist of the diocese of Rome in 1985 by Cardinal Ugo Poletti.

    Often sought out by media around the world for his views on exorcism and understanding the struggle against evil, Father Amorth once confirmed to the Register that he thought Hitler and Stalin were “certainly” possessed by the devil, but denied that that fact removed their own personal responsibility for their actions.

    They followed “the promptings of the devil and they have done so willingly,” Father Amorth said in a 2006 interview. “Therefore they are guilty, completely responsible.”

    When asked if there were any leaders today who could be similarly possessed, the exorcist said there are “many who listen to the temptations of Satan and follow him.” Because of that, he said, “the world goes bad.” Instead of leading others “towards peace and well-being, the world moves towards war and unease,” he said.

    Last year, at a conference in Rome, he said “ISIS is Satan” in reference to the so-called Islamic State which has been brutally murdering Christians and other minorities in the Middle East in an effort to create a worldwide caliphate. Members of the terrorist group have since been trying to spread their atrocities to the West.

    Father Amorth said at the time only two spiritual realms exist, “the Holy Spirit and the demonic spirit,” and that the demonic enters in “because evil is disguised in various ways: political, religious, cultural.” The demonic spirit has one source of inspiration: “the devil”, and as a Christian, he said he fights “the beast spiritually.”

    He noted that the political world, “which today seems to lack a response in face of the massacre of Christians, will also have to fight ISIS and it will do it in a different way. If it advances as it seems to be doing, we ask ourselves what has the West done over the course of the last decades.”

    In one of his last interviews published at the end of last year, Father Amorth told the magazine FaithfulInsight that “today the world does not turn from God because it is idolatrous; rather it pursues pure atheism, so as to put science on the altar.” But by turning away from the Lord, he said its breakthroughs “are put to disastrous use” and that without the Lord, “progress too is misused.”  

    “We see it in laws that go totally against nature such as divorce, abortion, 'gay marriage',” he said. “We have forgotten God! Therefore, God will soon admonish humanity in a very powerful manner, He knows how to remind us of His presence.”

    A firm believer that the Pope still needs to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart, as requested by the Blessed Virgin, in order to usher in a period of world peace, Father Amorth underlined in the same interview the importance of the family.

    “Divorce has been a disaster; abortion has been a disaster,” he said. “Each year 50 million children are murdered by abortion. And euthanasia, the broken family, cohabitation ... It is all destruction!”

    “The Lord gave us sex for a purpose,” he said. “One thing is sexual fun; another is love. Today there is much talk of love, but there truly is none! Precisely in Fatima did Our Lady say to the young, seven-year old, Jacinta: ‘the sin that brings the most souls to hell is the impure sin,’ the sin of the flesh. She said this to a young girl, who did not even know what it was! We must listen to that which Our Lady says.”

    By 2015, Father Amorth had performed over 70,000 exorcisms over 29 years, often repeating the rite on the same persons. In 1990, he founded the International Association of Exorcists and was president until he retired, in 2000. On Sept. 8 this year, he was awarded the "Medal of Liberation" by the prefect of Rome, in the presence of Italy’s Minister of Defense, for the “important role” he played in the partisan struggle against the Nazis in 1943.

    As well as an exorcist, Father Amorth also held several positions in the Society of St. Paul, including forming young religious, and serving as a teacher, spiritual director, and journalist. For many years, he was director of Madre di Dio, an Italian monthly, and a longtime contributor to another Italian Catholic monthly, Famiglia Cristiana. He also published a number of books on subjects that included exorcism, good and evil, the power of the media, freemasonry and sects.

    Gabriele Amorth
    , Dead at 91, the Last Valid Exorcist in Newchurch
     No Wonder Newchurch Is Going Faster and Faster to Hell
     With His Death Newchurch Has No Valid Exorcists Remaining
     And Has Fallen even Deeper into the Clutches of the Devil
     Than when Paul VI-Montini Declared on June 29, 1972
     That the Fumus Satanae, the Smoke of Satan
     Had Enveloped Newchurch Eucharistic "Dinner Tables"
     After the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965

    Newvatican's last valid Exorcist, in fact, its Chief Exorcist, died on September 16, 2016, at the age of 91. With his death Newchurch has no valid exorcists and has fallen even deeper into the clutches of the Devil than when Paul VI-Montini declared on June 29, 1972, that the fumus Satanae, the smoke of Satan, had enveloped Newchurch eucharistic "dinner tables" after the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965.

    Gabriele Amorth was ordained a traditional Catholic priest in 1954. Newchurch has not ordained priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders since the New Ordinal of 1968. Now it "installs presbyters," who officially are empowered, like Protestant ministers, only to "preside over the assembly of the people." They are no longer given the explicit power to celebrate Mass or to forgive sin. Those provisions have been stricken from the Novus Ordo installation rite. Nevertheless, out of lazy habit, Newchurchers still call them "priests," even though they are officially not, according to Newchurch.

    Fr. Amorth was a soldier in the French Resistance at the end of the Second World War. Since 1986 he has been serving as the Chief Exorcist of Newrome. Amorth claimed to have performed more than 50,000 exorcisms, some taking him just a few minutes, others taking many hours of prayer. Yet in all those cases, Amorth said that only 100, or 0.2%, involved true demonic possession. Most of the cases, he said, were either "disturbances" caused by the Devil, or simple mental illnesses.

    In a famous statement given in 2001, Amorth denounced the Novus Ordo rite of exorcism as essentially impotent. He himself used only the traditional Latin Rituale Romanum, the book that contains the traditional Catholic rites of the true Sacraments. He stated then, causing a scandal in Newchurch to this day:

    There were prayers [in the traditional Catholic ritual] used for twelve centuries. Before canceling prayers so old that for centuries they had proven effective, we should hesitate. But instead, no. All of us exorcists, using the prayers of the new [Novus Ordo] Ritual, have experienced that they are totally ineffective.... The new [Novus Ordo] Book of Blessings has painstakingly removed any reference to the fact that the Lord must protect us from Satan, that the Angels protect us from the assaults of the Devil. The greatest victory of the Devil is to persuade us that he does not exist.

    True Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church. It must be shunned by all Catholics like the worse-than-Protestant sect that it is. Newchurch presbyters are given no authority to combat Satan. However, all traditional Catholic priests have been ordained to the Minor Order of Exorcist on their path to the priesthood. They routinely perform exorcisms as part of common liturgical actions, for example, the powerful exorcisms that are part of the traditional Sacrament of Baptism and the Blessing of Holy Water used for the Asperges at the principal Sunday Mass and in the fonts at the door of traditional churches, chapels, and oratories. Every Sunday traditional Catholic priests perform an exorcism when they recite for the people the prayer Sancte Michael Archangele, which follows most Low Masses.

    The Prayer to St. Michael is one of the most powerful prayers in the Catholic Faith and is founded in Sacred Scripture, in the Book of Daniel of the Old Testament and in the Books of St. Jude and the Apocalypse of the New Testament. Newchurch expurgated the Prayer to St. Michael in 1965. No wonder Newchurch is full of the Devil.

  • There's a picture of St. John Bosco (Don Bosco) on the wall behind Fr. Amorth.  

    To properly conduct an exorcism requires authority by the local bishop with jurisdiction.  

    Needless to say, obtaining all these things is getting harder to accomplish in our time.

    May Fr. Amorth rest in peace.  And may the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
     :pray:
