The Two Voices: The Accuser And The Intercessor – Which Voice Are You? 

The Two Voices: The Accuser And The Intercessor – Which Voice Are You? 

The TWO VOICES: The ACCUSER & The INTERCESSOR.

Dear Faithful, WHICH VOICE are YOU?

We greet you in The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who is Anointed to deliver YOU! (Luke 4:18, Acts 10:38).

We all know, Faithful, that while all sin crucified The Redeemer, God especially hates certain sins: the killing of innocents and the sin of Sodom come immediately to mind, don’t they?

But did you know there is another sin that God hates, that has raised up it’s ugly horned head in The Body of Christ?

“These six things the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that sows discord among brethren.”

Proverbs 6:16-19.

*I want you to see today Dear Faithful that the prideful, the liars, those who murder innocents, the wicked and immoral are included together with those who sow STRIFE and DISCORD among the brethren.

They are JUST as sinful and wicked in The Eyes of The Lord as the immoral or those who shed innocent blood.

NOW The Bible says there are TWO VOICES in the heavenlies:

1. The Voice of The Accuser, Satan the devil – (Job 1:9-11, Revelation 12:10).

2. The Voice of The Intercessor – (Hebrews 7:25). These verses (look them up when you can) show that the devil accuses the children of God night and day; but that JESUS Our Great High Priest EVER LIVES to make INTERCESSIONS for us!

Glory be to GOD!

NOW: You CANt BE an ACCUSER and an INTERCESSOR at the same TIME: you are either one or the other!

You are either agreeing with Satan the devil as he hurls accusations? Or you are agreeing with JESUS as He intercedes to The Father for poor sinners!

In my country, we have a HUGE problem with ‘FAKE NEWS‘. Many ‘news’ outlets report false information and anything they DO report is biased and bent towards their unrighteous ungodly agenda.

But the SAME is happening in various so called ‘Catholicmedia‘ News Out-lets.

FAITHFUL, just because they CLAIM to be Catholic, look like Catholic, sound like Catholic doesn’t make them CATHOLIC!

NO!

*They are spreading the SINS, CRIMES and SCANDALS of The Holy Mother Church they claim to LOVE!

They spread gossip and evil surmising; they slander Pope Francis and tell his weaknesses and his faults: they slander and spread the mistakes-even the sins and crimes- of Cardinals, Bishops and Priests.

*LET Brother Willie be VERY CLEAR here: 

CRIMES are to be reported to the AUTHORITIES immediately: particularly when innocents are involved:

But we do not after that feed on ‘scandals‘ and ‘crimes‘ and ‘news‘ of brethren or prelates who have fallen; and we do not SPREAD the sins of other Christians!

It adds SCANDAL to SCANDAL.

They are inciting REBELLION against Pope Francis and our Bishops; they are causing SCHISM and DEVISION!

They are GOSSIP WHISPERERS, SCANDALMONGERS -which is just as evil as whore-mongers- backbiters and busybodies!

They are WICKED in The EYES of The Lord! and I REBUKE them one and ALL. And those who are spreading their POSTS: in The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth according to The Prophetic Anointing that came upon me in Lagos Nigeria!

The LORD REBUKE YOU!

*I want you to listen carefully: The Curse of The Lord comes upon those who do these things.

THE Bible said ‘Touch NOT my Anointed and do His Prophets no HARM.’

Psalms 105:15 and I Chronicles 16:22.

You’d better watch your MOUTH what you say or repeat about a Priest, a Bishop, Pope Francis The Vicar of Christ or even an Evangelical Pastor or Evangelist! 

EVEN if they’re wrong or The CURSE will come upon you.

I’m going to prove it to you from The Bible- and then we’re going to cite what The Catechism says about all this.

I. NOAH – A PREACHER of RIGHTEOUSNESS:

In The Book of Genesis the 9th chapter about the 18th verse begins a sad story.

After The Flood, The Bible said that Father Noah drank too much wine….and was DRUNK and ‘uncovered’ within his tent.

He was DRUNK and NAKED; and HAM the wicked son went in and saw his Fathers nakedness and went out from the tent and TOLD his two brethren without covering his father’s nakedness. 

He was the FIRST gossip, tale bearer, scandal-spreader.

But the two RIGHTEOUS Brothers took a garment, entered the tent backwards and COVERED their Father’s nakedness.

Whatever this passage means, it is quite clear there is more to the story than Noah drinking too much and loosing his robes.

The WICKED som Ham went out and spread the SCANDAL: but the RIGHTEOUS sons, COVERED.

LOVE COVERS!

“Above all, LOVE one another fervently; for LOVE COVERS a MULTITUDE of SINS.” 

(I Peter 4:8).

WHEN people spread the crimes, the sins and the weaknesses of The Church and her members, they DONT LOVE HER!

They are WICKED! (SIMPLE)

And when Noah awoke- ‘He said CURSED be Caanan: a Servant of SERVANTS shall he be! 

And BLESSED be The Lord God of SHEM: Caanan shall be his SERVANT; and The LORD shall enlarge JAPETH!” vs.27

*Repeating SCANDALS brings The CURSE:

COVERING the fallen with The LOVE of GOD brings The BLESSINGS.

II. The Curse upon Miriam:

FOLLOW this CAREFULLY Faithful: and you will see why some ‘catholics’ in The West are attacking and criticizing and inciting rebellion against Pope Francis.

Numbers 12:1 ‘And Miriam and Aaron SPOKE AGAINST MOSES…. because of The Ethiopian woman he had married.’

SO They SPOKE against Moses, God’s chosen and anointed: and there was RACISM and PREJUDICE involved!

HELLO somebody?!

‘They spoke against Moses saying ‘THAT AFRICAN woman… that BLACK woman… his wife……’

THEY didn’t like Moses’ WIFE because she was BLACK!

DID you know that’s exactly what these self righteous scandal-mongering-‘catholics’ are saying about out beloved Pope Francis because he is Latin American?

I saw a man… who is supposed to be a famous Apologist for The Faith spend an hour teaching that Pope Francis was a dictator and a Socialist because he is from Argentina?!

‘He’s not like Benedict XVI…. our European Pope…..’

Well I deleted every video he ever made and erased links to his SITES!

How many know The LORD didn’t allow Miriam to get away with it and He won’t allow THESE in The Church who are criticizing and spreading scandals and speaking against The Lord’s Anointed to get away with it EITHER!

And my Bible said in vs.10 (Numbers chapter 9) “and behold, Miriam became LEPROUS; white as snow.’

THE CURSE of The LORD came upon her for speaking against God’s anointed!

And it will come upon you TOO if YOU do!

And OH! What a terrible horrible disease it was….

But MORE than this, LEPROSY in The Bible is always a type of SIN.

When you see people pretending to love The Church and speaking against Pope Francis and spreading SINS, SCANDALS and FAULTS of Bishops and PRIESTS, know that they are NOT HOLY; they are WICKED! and full of LEPROSY! I don’t care if they DO hear Mass in Latin! 

And you’d better RUN from them FAST and FAR! UNFOLLOW their SITES and their PAGES! UNFRIEND them!

RUN!

Lest The Curse of Leprosy come upon YOU ALSO!

III. A BEAR and some BOYS.

There’s a shocking story in The Bible about some naughty boys who were criticizing and making fun of The Anointed Man of God Elisha.

‘YOU BALD HEAD!’ they called him…

You see this wicked demon will look for every defect and every weakness, every ugliness in a Man of God and then TELL it and SPREAD it:

The Bible says that The Curse of The Lord came down and two SHE-BEARS came out of the woods and TORE and ATE these 42 wicked children: (I Kings 2:23-25) and this awfully hard to read story… was left in God’s Holy WORD: so that you and I might LEARN to never run down God’s Anointed and spread their defects and their faults! Lest The Curse of The Lord come upon us. There are many ‘bears’ in this life… just lying in wait to rip us apart and have us for LUNCH. If we honer The Anointing and The Anointed Men of God, we will live under God’s protection and that Anointing that we are honoring will flow down upon US and our families!

THIS is the reason some never could get healed: why tragedy struck their lives, why they died prematurely before their time: They criticized and ran down men  of God and told their faults—and they opened the door to the thief the devil (John 10:10) and God’s protection lifted and The Curse of sin went into operation in their lives.

*(You may read about The Curse of The Lord and The Blessing of The Lord in Deuteronomy chapter 28).

WELL there’s MANY more examples children in The Word of God: but these things I leave with you that you might know dear reader, that The Lord God of HOSTS is very serious when He says ‘TOUCH not mine ANOINTED ONES and do my PROPHETS no HARM.’

Lets hasten in then, to examine what The Catechism has to say concerning these things.

The Catechism of The Catholic Church.

#2475 – Christ’s disciples have “put on the new man, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” By “putting away falsehood,” they are to “put away all malice, all guile, all insincerity, envy and ALL SLANDER.”

I Peter 2:1.

“Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and SLANDER of EVERY KIND.’

*There are about FIVE of these pretend Catholic Sites who spread the crimes, sins and scandals of the Holy Mother Church-

If I LISTED them, it would give the devil more publicity; but they SPREAD the moral failures of Priests Bishops and Prelates for financial gain; This is WICKED in The Eyes of The Lord, and there’s a special place in Hell reserved for them unless they repent.

They ‘pretend’ to be ‘journalists’ and a ‘NEWS Organization.’

They are nothing more than gossip mongers, evil surmizers and scandal spreaders.

They do NOT love The Church, nor do those souls who follow them and re-post their ‘news’; FOR, writes St. Josemaría, ‘If you truly loved her, you would NOT TREAT a sick MOTHER in this WAY.’ (In Love With The Church, St. Josemaría Escrivá).

‘ANONYMOUS sources have confirmed to ‘——-‘  that this Bishop said……’  or ‘This Priest did……..’

They are a WICKED bunch! and those who follow them!

LISTEN to The Catechism of The Catholic Church the claim to love:

#2476 False Witness And Perjury. 

When it is made publicly, a statement contrary to the truth takes on a particular gravity. It becomes false witness.

2477 Respect for the reputation of persons forbids every attitude and word likely to cause them unjust injury.

He becomes guilty:

– of rash judgment who, even tacitly, assumes as true, without sufficient foundation, the moral fault of a neighbor.

– of detraction who, without objectively valid reason, discloses another’s faults and failings to persons who did not know them.

– of calumny who, by remarks contrary to the truth, harms the reputation of others and gives occasion for false judgments concerning them.

2478 – To avoid rash judgment, everyone should be careful to interpret insofar as possible his neighbor’s thoughts, words, and deeds in a favorable way.

Every good Christian ought to be more ready to give a favorable interpretation to another’s statement than to condemn it

(NOTE – they NEVER allow for this with The Holy Father-They parse and pick apart his every word)!

2479 – Detraction and calumny destroy the reputation and honor of one’s neighbor. Honor is the social witness given to human dignity, and everyone enjoys a natural right to the honor of his name and reputation and to respect. Thus, detraction and calumny offend against the virtues of justice and charity.

THESE fake ‘catholic’ news outlets are guilty of this grave SIN: DETRACTION.

DETRACTION: “Disclosure of another’s FAULTS and SINS without an objectively valid reason-to persons who did not know about them, thus causing unjust injury to that person’s reputation.”

THE ONLY reason these wolves in sheep’s clothing do this, is because scandals SELL!

They are making money of the sins and scandals of The Church while pretending to be in love with Her and Catholic!

May The Lord REBUKE them and REMOVE them!

Be subject to rulers and those in authority and speak evil of NO man.” Titus 3:1-2.

“Speak not evil…. one of another brethren….” James 4:11.

“Wherefore, laying aside all malice and guile…and evil-speaking…( ie. Slander and repeating the sins and faults of others). 

I Peter 2:1

“Rebuke not an elder (a Presbyter-Bishop or Priest) but treat him as a father.” 

I Timothy 5:1.

Remember O Faithful that there are TWO VOICES: the devil the ACCUSER and The Lord Jesus The Intercessor!

SAINTS always join their voices to The Intercessor NOT to the accuser or the brethren which is satan the devil.

*Friends these WICKED people are inciting rebellion against Bishops, against Pope Francis; they are organizing protests before The Conference of Bishops, these wicked ‘journalists’ are stalking and harassing Bishops- and telling The Faithful to withhold money from The Church.

GOD doesn’t need your money: but you must give to Christ’s Church to get to Heaven.

*If you’ve followed any of these sites

*If you’re read about crimes and scandals

*If you’ve repeated or reposted….

REPENT right NOW!

Get to Confession as soon as POSSIBLE and promise The Lord from this day forward by His GRACE! You’ll never again join your voice with satan the accuser but will join your voice with Jesus and all The Saints and Angels! The Intercessor!

DELETE those wicked sites and warn those that are reposting; that you are a ROMAN CATHOLIC and you will unfriend them and block them if they continue this work of the Devil!

Oh I know you WILL!

For The Love of The Crucified Savior and The Holy Catholic Church which is His BODY!

THESE are JEZEBEL demons, AHAB demons that attack The Anointed of The Lord.

HELP Brother Willie fight these demons by SHARING this message with Faithful Catholics.

Now let us pray for our beloved Pope, Papa Francis:

V. Let us pray for Francis, the Pope.

R. May the Lord preserve him, give him a long life, make him blessed upon the earth, and may the Lord not hand him over to the power of his enemies.

V. May your hand be upon your holy servant.

R. And upon your son whom you have anointed.

Let Us Pray. 

O God, the Pastor and Ruler of all the faithful, look down, in your mercy, upon your servant, Francis, whom you have appointed to preside over your Holy Church; and grant, we beseech you, that both by word and example, he may edify all those under his charge; so that, with the flock entrusted to him, he may arrive at length unto life everlasting. Through Christ our Lord. 

R. Amen.

We LOVE you precious Faithful FOLLOWERS.

We THANK each one of you for helping us spread The Catholic Faith around the world!

The Lord be with thy spirit,

Love,

Brother William Timothy Lester.

“Even If The Pope Were The Devil Incarnate… “

“Even If The Pope Were The Devil Incarnate… “

St. Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church

Saint Catherine of Siena: “Even if the Pope were the Devil incarnate….”
Catherine set high standards – for herself, for her friends, for priests and prelates, and especially for the Holy Father. Again and again she urged the popes, first Gregory XI and later Urban VI, to act like Christ: manly, forgiving, honest, loving. Even if a pope did not act like “sweet Christ on earth,” Catherine believed that the faithful should treat him with the respect and obedience they would show to Jesus Himself. “Even if he were an incarnate devil, we ought not to raise up our heads against him – but calmly lie down to rest on his bosom.”
She wrote to the Florentines, who were rebelling against Pope Gregory XI: 


“He who rebels against our Father, Christ on earth, is condemned to death, for that which we do to him, we do to Christ in heaven – we honor Christ if we honor the pope, we dishonor Christ if we dishonor the pope… I tell you that God will and has so commanded that even if the priests and the pastors of the Church and Christ on earth were incarnate devils, it is seemly that we are obedient and subject to them, not for their sake, but for the sake of God, out of obedience to Him, for He wills that we should act thus.


“Know that the son is never in the right against the father, even if the father is ever so evil and unjust, for so great is the good which he has received from the father, that is, life itself, that he can never repay him for it. And we have received the life of grace from the Church, which is so great a benefit, that we can never, by any kind of homage or gratitude, pay the debt we owe.”
From Anne Baldwins Catherine of Siena: A Biography. Huntington, IN: OSV Publishing, 1987, pp. 95-6.
*Saint Catherine of Siena – (Third order of St. Dominic) TOSD (25 March, 1347 in Siena – 29 April 1380 in Rome), was a tertiary of the Dominican Order and a Scholastic philosopher and theologian who had a great influence on the Catholic Church. She is declared a saint and a doctor of the Church.

The Pope And The Scandal – What Can We Do? 

Pope Francis in prayer

What can we do about scandal? 

Reflection for Saturday: The Pope and the scandal – What can we do?

* Our Mother by the Cross. 

Saturday September 15, 2018.

Scriptures

1 Corinthians 10:14-22

Psalm 116:12-13, 17-18

John 19:25-27 or Luke 2:33-35.

I do not want you to become participants with demons.

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and also the cup of demons.

You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and of the table of demons.

Or are we provoking the Lord to jealous anger?

Are we stronger than him? 

(From Saturday’s first reading).

Reflection for Saturday:

The Pope and the scandal – What can we do?

I’m sure you’ve been praying about the scandal of sex abuse, coverups, and the pope. And this is exactly the right thing to do.

We simply don’t know enough to make judgments.

Yes, we can judge the sin and we must do whatever we can to stop it from happening again. But let’s also look at the bigger picture. The real enemy is Satan (Ephesians 6), and his strategy is much bigger and wider than the obvious (damaging children through sex abuse and allowing it through Church hierarchy). Our Enemy wants to destroy the Church. Our Enemy wants to render the Church untrustworthy, thereby keeping people away from Christ in the Eucharist. Our Enemy is trying to destroy us from within. He’s gaining ground right now as we vent our righteous anger against each other and against the Pope.

Praise the Lord, God has given us a way to win this battle!

I am not about to say that the Pope is doing a good or bad job of handling this crisis. I am not trusting my own thoughts and feelings about the Pope. How can we trust our limited knowledge? We do not know the mind and the motives of Pope Francis. We do not know what conversations are happening behind closed doors. And we certainly don’t know the mind of God. What is God doing about purging the Church of evil-doers? Does God want the Pope to resign? Is there a bigger plan that God is working? What good is God planning to bring from the evil, as he promised to do in Romans 8:28?

We’ve read the accusations made against the pope by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, former nuncio to the United States, claiming that the pope knew of Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual misconduct yet allowed him to continue in active ministry. And we’re naturally very frustrated that he did not defend himself when asked about it. His silence seems to imply that he is guilty of the coverup that Vigano described.

In righteous anger about the evils of abuses and coverups, we seek an outlet for our passionate desire to put a stop to abuses. We know that purging needs to happen within the hierarchy of the Church. Most of us, however, are not in positions where we can affect change. Lacking an outlet for our passion, frustration gets added to anger, and boom! It becomes explosive.

People are finding something — anything — to do in an effort to make a difference. Some are walking out of Mass. Some are deciding to never return to church. Many more are signing “open letters” to the pope.

But let’s be honest, okay? We don’t have enough information on which to base any decisions. We do not know the mind and the motives of Pope Francis. We do not know what conversations are happening behind closed doors. And we certainly don’t know the mind of God and why he bringing to light now — not sooner, not later — the abuses and the coverups.

What really was in the pope’s heart when he spoke to reporters on August 26 after Vigano’s letter was published? What really did he mean when he said, “I will not say a single word on this. I think this statement speaks for itself, and you have the sufficient journalistic capacity to draw conclusions.” Some say it means he’s guilty. But might it mean that he is so innocent that he assumed that anyone who looks closely at Vigano’s statement would vindicate the pope? Christianity has a long history of Saints refusing to defend their own innocence, because self-defense has too much “self” in it.

What is Satan’s role in all of this? The Bible calls him “the Great Accuser”. We need to be on guard against all accusations, because false accusations and exaggerations of true sins are exactly what the devil uses to destroy from within. Last Tuesday, Pope Francis said in his homily, “In these times, it seems like the ‘Great Accuser’ has been unchained and is attacking bishops. True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins so they are visible in order to scandalize the people.” I do not believe that he’s saying that we who are demanding repentance and change are Satan. Remember what Ephesians 6 says about that.

Anyone who does the Lord’s work effectively, making a real difference by winning souls away from Satan, wears a bullseye target on their back — especially those in positions of leadership. The enemy of Christ always tries to destroy their credibility. This is something with which I am very familiar. The Great Accuser has tried to destroy my reputation, my family relationships, and Good News Ministries with false and exaggerated claims. The Lord has taught me that the best response is not self-defense but (1) repenting of any actual sins, (2) prayer, (3) trust in God, and (4) refusing to let the devil ruin my joy. Eventually, the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Spirit) wins this battle. Not me. Not the pope.

We truly and simply do not have enough information to draw any conclusions about Pope Francis. And we need to be okay with that. If we want to be holy — instead of drinking from the cup of demons — we need to trust that God cares (far more than we do!), and that God is the only one who understands the situation fully, and that God is not sitting idly by while his Bride suffers; he is working a plan.

In 2006, I wrote: “God is purging his Church. What he started with the child molestation scandal he will continue against all types of abuses. I’m expecting more scandals to hit the news, after God gives his Church (the beloved faithful) time to rest.”

I also said: “I have had the distinct feeling that the scandals of [2001] were only Step One of the purging God desires for his beloved Church. All forms of abuse within the Church — whether by a priest or lay person or religious or deacon — is anti-evangelization, harmful to the mission of the Church, and an abomination which grieves the Lord and our Blessed Mother.”

What can you do with the passionate energy you have from your righteous anger? Pray the Rosary often for all priests, especially those tempted to abuse their vocations, and for the Pope and all decision-makers in the Vatican, and for the victims of abuse, and for the souls of the perpetrators (who are in danger of ending up in hell). That is your weapon, and through it you fight the battle for justice and truth and holiness.

Beyond prayer, there is something else we can do to make a difference. We can — and must — purge sin from our own lives. We, too, are the Church. Every compromise we make with worldly ideas of what’s right and wrong is a contribution to the demons who are working a concerted strategy to destroy the Church from within.

Saturday‘s Gospel reading calls my attention to: ” … next to the cross of Jesus, there was his mother…”. “Next to the cross” says the verse, not “in front of”, not “behind” but “next to“. Mary was right there beside her Son. She was with her Son. We can say that she even felt the pain of her Son.

Today Mary is our mother and she is with us in our daily sufferings. She feels our pain. She understands our feelings, because she knows suffering very closely. 

Mary looks, listens, feels, and knows how we feel.But she is not content with just looking and feeling; she always turns to Jesus, her Son, because she knows that he can help us. And , as in Cana, attentive and hurried, she takes our needs to him and then tells us: “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5).

An Exorcist Explains How To Recognize Demonic Activities In Recent Church Scandals.

An Exorcist Explains How To Recognize Demonic Activities In Recent Church Scandals.

By sexually abusing children…He (Satan) wants to destroy the most innocent version of humanity, which is the child.”

Father Gary Thomas 


“Who is going to believe you?” It is the devil’s taunt, according to exorcist, Father Gary Thomas. It is a message to silence sexual abuse victims. And we have learned that same message silenced or impeded the truth of the sexual scandal in the Church from getting out for so long.

Fr. Gary Thomas is the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose, California. His training in Rome was the subject of the 2010 book The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt Baglio. Hollywood made it into a movie in 2011 starring Anthony Hopkins.

I recently interviewed Father Thomas for an article about horror movies, although he pointed out that The Rite is really about faith. Although there are horrific scenes in it, he explained that spiritual warfare between the devil and God is very real and it can get scary as it plays out through humanity. It seems that all conversations lead to Rome these days, and that is where ours eventually went — to the real-life horror story within the Church.

Catholics know that the devil seeks our destruction and is forever looking for openings to destroy God’s Church and harm souls. The sex abuse scandal reveals that he found hospitality among those who should have turned him out.

Icon of the Kingdom

“It’s only going to get worse,” Father Thomas said, “but as bad as it is, it has to come out. It is unacceptable.” According to him, the devil used his old standby threat to keep people silent: Who’s going to believe you? We know now that among those that spoke out despite that taunt, the devil’s agents did indeed show disbelief or apathy.

“Convincing people that no one will believe them is what Satan says when something is so outside the bounds of what is reasonable as to be unbelievable,” Father Thomas said. “Reading the accounts of what those children in Pennsylvania went through [as detailed in the Grand Jury Report] we wonder, how could this happen?” he asked. “It’s other-worldly—outside what people thought was possible — that’s what makes it demonic.”

In an article about becoming the solution, Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., founder and president of the Ruth Institute, pointed out that if abusers thought people would speak up and be listened to, they would not have gotten away with so much for so long. If people had listened to poor “James,” when he was abused at 11-years-old, the now 60-year-old man abused by Father Theodore McCarrick, would not have had to suffer in silence for decades. “James tried to tell his parents,” Morse wrote. “They did not believe him, against the word of a respected priest. James began getting into trouble, doing alcohol and drugs. The family thought Father McCarrick could straighten him out. They encouraged him to spend more time with their son.”

Father Thomas noted that sexual abuse involving children, both inside and outside of the Church, is especially heinous. “By sexually abusing children, Satan desires to destroy the icon of the kingdom of God. He wants to destroy the most innocent version of humanity, which is the child.”

The scandalous behavior, in his opinion, was clearly demonic. “With natural disasters, people die sometimes,” he said. “Even if there’s great destruction, we don’t consider that evil because it’s in the realm of the natural. When there’s a car accident, we don’t call it an act of evil. But when it’s outside the bounds of what is conceivable—like murder—we call it evil. ISIS is a satanically driven organization because they have a premediated will to kill as many as possible who don’t believe their way of life. Even drug cartels are demonic and often pray to Satan to curse their drugs and they refer to Satan as their father and pray to him. I’ve seen documentaries on this and attended workshops with government task forces and prayed over some of the cops because of what they are dealing with.”

Pray and Fast

For the sake of the Church, Father Thomas calls on all Catholics to pray and fast and to act wherever possible to root out evil. “It can’t just be the removal of a few,” Father Thomas said. “It has to be a complete reshaping of the paradigm of the way our Church governs; we need a complete cleaning up. We need a lay commission to set up an independent study. The bishops can’t do it; they don’t know how to do it.”

In his work as an exorcist, Father Thomas fasts and prays before confronting the devil. He pointed out that he does so in a reasonable way — not starving himself to the point of weakness — but makes it sacrificial to strengthen him to fight evil. “Prayer, fasting and the sacraments are efficacious,” Father Thomas said, “but it cannot be without the intentionality of action that comes out of prayer. We want prayer to change us and we are praying for a change in the whole Church, all the way up. And we are also praying for the victims who have gone through decades of terrible trauma.”

Father Thomas encouraged Catholics to be strong and be prepared to persevere. “We are in for a long storm,” he said. “The clouds are just starting. However, our primary concern must be the victims who have been violated and firmly and without doubt prevent new victimizations from taking place in the future. There can be no tolerance for sexual misconduct perpetrated by clergy or lay people within the Church now or ever again.”
