    There are two eual and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils One is to disbelieve in their existence The other is to believe and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them― CS Lewis Before reading this book I read Father Malachi Martin's book about exorcism Hostage To The Devil

    This book is SOOOOO Catholic Not a bad thing if you're reading for example something heavy like Pope Benedict's Introduction to Christianity

    Demonic possession is the most stigmatized and stereotyped of all border phenomena And I say border as I refer to the line between what we consider normal and experiences we can't explain Perhaps the movies are to blame for our idea of what an exorcism consists of a little girl screams when splashed with holy water or a deep evil voice manifests Neuroscience and psychology associate demonic possession with a call for

    This is my third non fiction book on exorcisms I've read this year and this one is by far the best I liked how this book followed a priest from San Jose to Italy so that he could receive the training to become an exorcist He was igno

    A mildly interesting read but predominantly very dry One major downfall for me was that whilst it's obviously a religious bookpractice it felt entirely too 'pro Catholic' as opposed to simply stating facts recit

    The most unusual feature about this book given its subject matter is that it is absolutely devoid of any of the dramatic excess one usually finds in a book on this topic It could have been subtitled Exorcism 101

  7. says:

    A solid work and reasonable presentation of actual information regarding a Christian perspective on Satan demons and exorcism from the Roman Catholic angleThere is so much trash written and practiced concerning this subject; it is extremely difficult to find real information presented in a rational theologically sound manner I read

    I honestly can't make heads or tails of this book Yes it was an incredibly interesting read but a lot of it was very hard to swallow even for someone like me who unreservedly believes in the existence of demonic spirits I have no idea how much of the book was factual and how much was blatant exaggeration Bagli

The Rite The Making of a Modern Exorcist

Is demonic possession real Father Gary Thomas was a sceptic until he was sent on a Vatican run course for the training of modern day exorcists What he learned there and his subseuent experiences battling evil in contemporary exorcisms changed his mindWriter Matt Bag. Demonic possession is the most stigmatized and stereotyped of all border phenomena And I say border as I refer to the line between what we consider normal and experiences we can t explain Perhaps the movies are to blame for our idea of what an exorcism consists of a little girl screams when splashed with holy water or a deep evil voice manifests Neuroscience and psychology associate demonic possession with a call for attention or a misinterpretation of a modern disease like schizophrenia The fact that the whole experience is so deeply coded with religious ritual and theology may discourage even the most open minded paranormal researcherA balanced look at the experience of an exorcist must weigh all of these barriers towards providing a fair and believable look at the truth behind these tormenting experiences Freelance writer and journalist Matt Baglio succeeds at demonstrating why modern demon possession lore is just the tip of the iceberg through his recently released The Rite Making of a Modern ExorcistI didn t expect an account of exorcism to be so believable or so chilling Partly because Baglio was just as skeptical when he started writing the book and partly because following San Franciscan Catholic priest Father Gary through his training revealed that he started just as cluelessWhen the Catholic Church wrote a letter to every US diocese in 2005 Father Gary was surprised to learn that he had been chosen for the post Leaving for a sabbatical year Father Gary spent twelve months at the Continuing Theological Education at the North American College in Rome where he was ordered by his bishop to take a course on how to become an exorcist That first class was where Baglio and Gary met Matt seeing an opportunity to follow someone through the process of what he thought might be a sensational ploy at the headlines by the Catholic ChurchMost American priests fall on one end of a large spectrum they are either uite skeptical of exorcism or see demons everywhere But in Italy demonic possession is just a fact of life Oddly enough the most exorcisms occur in Italy a country that is over 80% Catholic Is this because demonic possession primarily affects Catholics or is it because Italians are likely to seek out an exorcism These are just some of the interesting mysteries raised by this bookAs Father Gary progresses through the training he apprentices with Father Carmine an expert in performing the exorcism ritual Initially Father Gary only witnessed what he described as people coming in and belching very loudly Leaving him with many uestions than answers until he witnessed the case of Sister JanicaJanica was a nun that suffered from a very powerful demon When Father Carmine began the ritual she shook in her chair and began to beat her head against stone wall until it shook As the prayers continued she growled and then shouted an ear piercing scream just before the voice manifested It was an otherworldly guttural rasping sound that shouted obscenities at Father Carmine Her face contorted into rage Her eyeballs rolled into her head and she screamed flailing on the floor And this had been happening regularly for nine years Movies and lore depicts the exorcism as a one shot deal but this is rarely the case The possessed are freed from their demons only after a long process of returning to religious ritual in their lives for Catholics this means confessions prayer and mass The exorcism only makes up about 10 20% of the healing process But in rare cases priests have performed exorcisms on Muslims and Hindus after which they returned to their respective rituals This is one of the theological reasons that God allows possession to lead people back to a life of devout faith After witnessing something as horrible as an evil force acting through a human being I m sure I would strike up some sort of repeated action to avoid itThe scientific explanation against possession lacks the ability to account for uite a few unbelievable experiences For example one priest went home after an exorcism and his cats began tearing each other to pieces The next day when talking to his patient the demonic voice manifested and said to the priest that it enjoyed playing with his cats Another case involved a possessed individual taunting a priest with a demonic voice about its ability to erase all his phone s text messages because he did Multiple personality disorder and depression can t explain why the possessed have been known to vomit buckets of sperm live scorpions and black nails Clairvoyant abilities are provided by the demons through the possessed as they sometimes describe intimate details of priest s lives or objects in hidden areas In very rare cases a demon will describe its past possessions the priest was involved in The descriptions that Matt Baglio received of these horrible exorcisms through first hand interviews are very disturbing As I read them chills went down my spine because they are so vivid and honestDiscernment the ability to determine if someone is truly possessed is an interesting dilemma Many exorcists like to work with a team of psychologists psychiatrists and other advisers The key to determining if someone is truly possessed can be rather obscured but typically if someone s condition does not respond to medicine only to blessings and prayer it is an indication that demonic possession is likely present Almost always someone truly possessed won t attribute their problems to a demon They only seek out the priesthood after being forced by a family member or friend If one comes to a priest saying that they have a demon in them that s a clue in the direction of a purely psychological problemThis gripping account of an often ignored portion of the human experience The Rite exceeded my expectations and led me to uestion my hodge podge worldview Why is it that demonic possessions occur so often in Catholics and in women This leads me to speculate that like the campfire creating the shadows the Catholic Church somehow creates this polar opposite manifest in the phenomena of demonic possession There is truth in the accounts within this book as depicted by the shock of seasoned priests to the experience of their first witnessed possession When the exorcists themselves can t explain what is happening I know it is a profound mystery What it all means is beyond anyone s understanding especially mine The Certainty of Violet and Luke (Volume 5) real Father Gary Thomas was a sceptic until he was sent on a Vatican Kane Richards Must Die run

Lio who met Father Gary on the course accompanied him on the journey that transformed him from doubter into believer participating in exorcisms and culminating in Father Gary's own fearsome confrontation with the Devil Woven into his story is the fascinating history. The most unusual feature about this book given its subject matter is that it is absolutely devoid of any of the dramatic excess one usually finds in a book on this topic It could have been subtitled Exorcism 101 because the author traces the progress of an American priest in Rome on his journey to becoming an exorcist Along the way the book examines the history of exorcism the importance of doing a psychiatric examination and how symptoms of various psych disorders may resemble demonic possession the order of angels the history of the devil and demons the pitfalls of being an exorcist The Vatican is working toward having a trained exorcist in every diocese in the world To that end priests come to the Vatican for exorcism classwork and also have an opportunity to work with seasoned exorcists In Italy exorcism is much accepted and possessed persons make a standing appointment to see an exorcist usually for 30 minutes once a week Over time the ritual wears the demon or demons down hopefully leading to an eventual liberation for the suffering person This book raised many serious uestions for me than it answered concerning the nature of evil and its myriad manifestations I once had a client who killed his family He was examined independently by a psychiatrist and a psychologist Both of these mental health professionals were accustomed to diagnosing disorders in people who had committed serious crimes In the case of my client they each came up with an opinion that he had been possessed by an evil force at the time of the murders Needless to say we did not present that theory to the jury Since then though I have been interested in the clinical approach to the idea of demonic possession To share meandering thoughts from down another path My Goodreads friend who is a holocaust librarian recently reviewed an book about genocide in Rwanda and ended his review by saying that the holocaust in Rwanda may portend even worse days for Darfur if nothing is done to stop what is happening there In everything I have read about Rwanda one of the most often used characterizations of the bloody violence there was Hell We know that people will run amok in groups in ways that they would never do as individuals In places like Rwanda and Darfur though it goes beyond mass hysteria or insanity to a much darker place Does Satan have a presence there as wellI in no means am trying to allege any kind of the devil made me do it defense of anyone s actions However i do strongly feel that evil exists as a force in the world I guess it is up to the individual to fight it however they can whether that is through an exorcism of just reminding people that evil exists
