Tell Us Something We Don't Know… Exorcist Says Satan Is in the Media
Tell us something new…
A noted Italian exorcist says the devil is working behind the scene in the state-run media.
The New York Times released a 50 year-old sexual abuse story that occurred in Milwaukee this week in an attempt to attack Pope Benedict XVI during Holy Week. The article was a shoddy piece of journalism but caused major damage to the Catholic Church and Pope Benedict XVI.
Today a leading exorcist said the devil was behind the Holy Week attacks.
Catholic News Agency reported:
Noted Italian exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, commented this week that the recent defamatory reporting on Pope Benedict XVI, especially by the New York Times, was “prompted by the devil.”
Speaking to News Mediaset in Italy, the 85-year-old exorcist noted that the devil is behind “the recent attacks on Pope Benedict XVI regarding some pedophilia cases.”
“There is no doubt about it. Because he is a marvelous Pope and worthy successor to John Paul II, it is clear that the devil wants to ‘grab hold’ of him.”
Father Amorth added that in instances of sexual abuse committed by some members of the clergy, the devil “uses” priests in order to cast blame upon the entire Church: “The devil wants the death of the Church because she is the mother of all the saints.”
“He combats the Church through the men of the Church, but he can do nothing to the Church.”
Let’s hope Father Amorth can shake the demons from the Old Gray Lady.
It’s about time.
