US Exorcists: Demonic Activity on the Rise

US Exorcists: Demonic Activity on the Rise
National Catholic Register

INDIANAPOLIS — There is an alarming increase in demonic activity being reported by those who work in exorcism ministry, said the exorcist for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Although steps are being taken to increase the number of exorcists, demand is still outpacing supply.

Father Vincent Lampert has been an exorcist for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis since 2005 and is the pastor at St. Malachy’s in Indianapolis. He trained at the North American College in Rome and assisted with more than 40 exorcisms with longtime Italian exorcist Father Carmine De Filippi. Although the identities of most exorcists are hidden, Father Lampert often gives talks to warn against evil and turn people toward the power of God.

In an interview with the Register, he said that he sees an increasing number of people involved in Satanic rituals and opening themselves up to evil.

...

Actual demonic possessions are rare, however, Father Lampert explained. “I’ve only seen three possessions in the last three years, but there is also infestation, vexation and obsession.”

infestation, vexation and obsession


Indeed. This describes our last election and it's aftermath to a "tee".

Something about this story is giving me deja vu. Didn't we see one like this a couple years ago?

Yeah. It was a little hard to find though because the thread title was different:

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Demonic possession and attachment are on the rise. It is possible that satan's army is on the offensive, as the world has given him an opening. The rise of atheism, interest in paganism and the occult, has opened millions of souls to the devil.

The BBC recently interviewed Italian exorcist, Fr. Vincenzo Tataborelli. Fr. Taraborelli revealed he could see as many as 30 people in a day who wanted exorcisms. He shared stories of people vomiting objects including pebbles and bits of wood along with blood.

"I told the bishop that I can't find anyone willing to do this. Many of them are scared. Even priests can be scared. It's a difficult life," he told the BBC.

Expected. If one is in the business, what better way to assure oneself of continuing work than to bark about it from the street corners?
