About this deal

Newsflash - mental problems take years to heal and some never do despite having nothing supernatural about them. And you can't really tell for yourself if you are, because apparently losing control over your body and being trapped inside your head is one of the most extreme signs of possession, some sort of a final stage and not the norm or even the beginning. The author encourages priests to lead souls to God and to trust in God, and not to be afraid of the devil’s reprisal following exorcisms, which is very rare. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. If getting in touch and receiving power from demons was so easy, it would have been a recognized truth of the world, a commonly known fact like the shape of the earth (which some still deny).

This includes even what most people think of as totally innocuous, such as the persistent use of foul language. Amorth's book should be considered as the primary reference to understanding the weaknesses of Man against this powerful entity, who was once the perfect angel created by God. I was expecting (obviously) for this to be saturated with doctrine (which I'm usually okay with) when it comes to this topic. In those two parts of the book Father Amorth explains things about exorcisms that I did not now of until reading this book.What works for one exorcist won't necessarily work for another but this doesn't matter because "facts do not change and the efficacy of a method cannot be discounted because the facts differ from someone else's experience. It gave me many insights into the devil—satan—and his minions and the various ways they work to ensnare human beings, hang on to them once they have been trapped, continue to haunt them even after they have been exorcised and all the damage they can do if an exorcism is not done properly. Rather, it touches on many factors: the nature of Christ, the angels, and the demons; forms and characteristics of diabolic activities; and the basic theories of exorcism---what it is, who can do it, when should it be done, why it should it be done, and how it should be done. It is instead a calm, prayerful and sincere warning against the devil and his evil influence in this world, and how it has grown in modern society.

The author talks about signs to recognize demonic possession, yet says you cannot be certain until exorcism is attempted and you can't tell for sure even after one of two sessions. We would be foolish to ignore his warnings concerning the real activity of fallen angels in the life of the world; until the end of time, Satan remains the Prince of this World.Amorth very simply lays out all those things in life that the evil one uses to draw people in and then to make them suffer. Fr Amorth is a man who deals daily with the awful realities of possession by evil spirits and exorcism.

a fairytale-natured book aiming to sow the seeds of false optimism and arrogance about human's power over the demons. By those accounts, I suspect this author would happily let me know I was going to hell, despite the fact that my most meaningful spiritual practice is. One thing I was surprised to learn was how much demons suffer during exorcisms and yet, not so much as they will in hell. While I do agree that leading a devout Christian life can be an admirable pursuit, the book seems to imply that it inevitably leads to a power struggle, as power has a tendency to corrupt. Obviously the book is written from a Catholic perspective since the author is a Catholic priest holding the office of Exorcist.After having read Mr Adam Bai's Hauntings, Possessions, and Exorcisms, which was very technical and highly organized, this book was somewhat frustrating. Gabriele has written this book as a cry out to his fellow priest friends in a bid to wake them up or rather man them up with the reality of things. An excellent, fascinating read but disturbing to the extent that the author makes one realize how the Devil and the demonic can pervade our lives today. If people deny his existence, it is easier for him to do his work, because no one protects against him.

It contained very interesting anecdotes, new information, and some of the Church positions on the existence of devil. There's no question in his mind that African religions are false and open people to demonic possession. It is a matter of fact presentation of the reality of the spiritual realm by a man who touched it without fear every day.It's amazing how many people who deny the existence of God, furrow the brow and exhibit unease when the subject of satanic practices, poltergeists, curses and 'unholy. Here I include his claims of performing over 30 000 exorcisms during the course of nine years, which means over 9 per day every day without rest.
