Fr. Gabriele Amorth The Vatican’s Chief Exorcist in Rome FOR Decades Exorcism Prayers.

Prayers of Deliverance.

1. Prayer Against Malefice from the Greek Ritual:

Kyrie eleison. God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, Thou Who made everything and Who transformeth everything simply by Thy will. Thou Who in Babylon didst change into dew the flames of the ‘seven-times hotter’ furnace and didst protect and save the three holy children. Thou art the doctor and the physician of our soul. Thou art the salvation of those who turn to Thee. We beseech Thee to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Thy servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity. O Lord, Thou Who lovest man, we beg Thee to reach out Thy powerful hands and Thy most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people. Then, under the protection of Thy authority may we sing, in gratitude, ‘The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because Thou art with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us, Thy image, and save Thy servant [name of person/s] from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him/her by raising him/her above all evil. We ask Thee this through the intercession of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady, Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, of the most splendid archangels and all Thy saints. Amen!

2. Anima Christi:

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

3. Prayer Against Every Evil:

Spirit of our God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, Immaculate Virgin Mary, angels, archangels, and saints of heaven, descend upon me. Please purify me, Lord, mold me, fill me with Thyself, use me.

Banish all the forces of evil from me, destroy them, vanquish them, so that I can be healthy and do good deeds.

Banish from me all spells, witchcraft, black magic, malefice, ties, maledictions, and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil and sinful, jealously, perfidy, envy; physical, psychological, moral, spiritual, diabolical aliments.

Burn all these evils in Hell, that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world.

I command and bid all the power who molest me – by the power of God all powerful, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, through the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary – to leave me forever, and to be consigned into the everlasting Hell, where they will be bound by Saint Michael the archangel, Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.

4. Prayer for Inner Healing:

Lord Jesus, Thou came to heal our wounded and troubled hearts. I beg Thee to heal the torments that cause anxiety in my heart; I beg Thee, in a particular way, to heal all who are the cause of sin. I beg Thee to come into my life and heal me of the psychological harms that struck me in my early years and from the injuries that they caused through my life.

Lord Jesus, Thou knows my burdens. I lay them all on Thy Good Shepherd’s Heart. I beseech Thee – by the merits of the great, open wound in Thy heart-to heal the small wounds that are in mine. Heal the pain of my memories, so that nothing that has happened to me will cause me to remain in pain and anguish, filled with anxiety.

Heal, O Lord, all those wounds that have been the cause of all the evil that is rooted in my life. I want to forgive all those who have offended me. Look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive. Thou Who came to forgive the afflicted of heart, please, heal my own heart.

Heal, my Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness. I offer Thee my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Thy Divine Heart. Help me to be meek and humble.

Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones, which is oppressing me. Grant me to regain peace and joy in the knowledge that Thou art the Resurrection and the Life. Make me an authentic witness to Thy Resurrection, Thy victory over sin and death, Thy living presence among us. Amen.

5. Prayer for Deliverance:

My Lord, Thou art all powerful, Thou art God, Thou art Father. We beg Thee through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one. All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness and obsessions, we beg Thee. Free us, O Lord.

From hatred, fornication, envy, we beg Thee, Free us, O Lord.

From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death, we beg Thee, Free us, O Lord.

From every thought of suicide and abortion, we beg Thee, Free us, O Lord.

From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg Thee, Free us, O Lord.

From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship, we beg Thee, Free us, O Lord.

From every sort of spell, malefic, witchcraft, and every form of the occult, we beg Thee,

Free us, O Lord.

Lord, Thou Who said, “I leave you peace, My peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy Thy peace always. In the name of Christ, our Lord. Amen.

The 4 Types Of Curses By Vatican Exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth

The 4 Types Of Curses By Vatican Exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth

The Four Types of Curses.

Fr. Amorth on the 4 Types of Curses:

“Curse is a generic word. It is commonly defined as “harming others through demonic intervention.” This is an exact definition, but it does not explain the cause of the harm, hence the beginning of confusion. For instance, some believe that curse is synonymous with spell or witchcraft. In my opinion, spells and witchcraft are two different types of curses. I do not claim to give a comprehensive explanation, and I rely solely on my own experience when I defend the following forms of curses”.

1. Black Magic – Witchcraft – Satanic Rites that Culminate with Black Masses:

Fr. Amorth address these practices as a group because they are analogous and they share the “common characteristic” of obtaining “a curse against a specific person through magic formulas or rituals – at times very complex – by invoking the demon, but without the use of particular objects.”

Whoever devotes himself to these practices becomes a servant of Satan through his own fault.

Scriptural passages prohibiting analogous practices: Dt. 18:10-12, Lev 19:31, Lev 20:27, Lev 19:26-31, Ex 22:18.

2. Curses:

Curses invoke evil, and the origin of all evil is demonic. When curses are spoken with true perfidy, especially if there is a blood relationship between the one who casts them and the accursed, the outcome can be terrible.

Fr. Amorth stresses the fact that there are incredibly strong bonds between family members, and that curses that operate within these familial bonds or on a “special occasion,” e.g., a wedding, can have terrible consequences.

He gives several examples of cases he worked: a young man cursed by his own father at birth, parents cursing their daughter-in-law at their wedding, and man whose grandmother cursed a photograph of him, resulting in ill legs and multiple surgeries.

3. The Evil Eye:

This consists in a spell cast by looking at someone. It does not come about, as many think, by believing that some individual cause bad luck by just looking at you; this is nonsense. The evil eye is a true spell; in other words, it presupposes the will to harm a predetermined person with the intervention of demons.

What is important is that the victim should not suspect everyone he meets, but forgive wholeheartedly whoever caused him evil, no matter who. I want to stress that, while I believe that the evil eye is possible, I cannot be positive that I have encountered it in my experience as an exorcist.

4. The Spell (aka Malefice or Hex):

A “spell” is the “most commonly used means to achieve evil.” In Latin, it is the male factus – meaning “Evil work.” It is generally accomplished by making some type of “evil” artifact.

The object has an almost symbolic value: it is a tangible sign of the will to harm, and it is offered to Satan to be imprinted with his evil powers. It is often said that Satan apes God; in this case we can use the sacraments as an analogy. The sacraments use tangible matter (for instance the water of baptism) as an instrument of grace. In the malefice matter is used as an instrument of harm.

Application of the Malefice:

Direct Way: Consists of mixing the object that is used for the spell into the victim’s food or drink. As already mentioned, this is manufactured with the most diverse materials; it can be menstrual blood; bones of dead people; various burned powders, mostly black; animal parts – the heart seems to be the favorite; peculiar herbs, and so on.”

Indirect Way: “This consists in hexing objects that belong to the target (photographs, clothes, or other belongings) or figures that represent the accursed: dolls, puppets, animals, even real people of the same age and sex. This is called “transfer” material, and it is struck with the same ills that are intended for the victim.”

Other Attributes:

Binding Malefice: The transfer object is bound with various ribbons or animal hairs to produce a “binding” effect. Fr. Amorth recounts an event where a doll was bound to an umbilical cord with horse hair in an attempt to strike a pregnant woman’s child.

Hex Objects: Often times transfer objects for a hex appear inside pillows or mattresses.

I have found just about everything, from colored and tied ribbons to chunks of hair tightly knotted… animals – especially mice – or geometric shapes; and blood clots. I have seen chunks of wood or iron, twisted wire, and dolls full of piercing and marks and have witnessed the sudden appearance of very thick braids of children or women’s hair. Miraculously, sometimes these objects are not even visible until holy water is sprinkled upon the opened pillow.

Spiritual Warfare: 6 Types Of Extraordinary Demonic Activities By Father Gabriele Amorth

Spiritual Warfare: 6 Types Of Extraordinary Demonic Activities By Father Gabriele Amorth

Father Gabriele Amorth on Spiritual Warfare.

6 Types of Extraordinary Demonic Activity.

The Chief Exorcist of Rome, Fr. Gabriele Amorth categorizes demonic activity into ordinary and extraordinary. The former is simply temptation, while the latter is broken down into the six main categories.

1. External Physical Pain Caused by Satan:

As its name suggestions, demonic activity can manifest as physical pain. Fr. Amorth points to Saint John of the Cross, the Cure of Ars, and Padre Pio as historical examples of those who suffered physical beatings and torment by demons. However, since this “external form of persecution does not affect the soul,” it is understood that “there has never been the need for an exorcism, only for prayers.”

2. Demonic Possession:

“This occurs when Satan takes full possession of the body (not the soul). He speaks and acts without the knowledge or consent of the victim, who therefore is morally blameless.” In reference to the question, is there a stereotypical possession or referential model, Fr. Amorth advises the following, “to fix a set ‘model’ for demonic possession would be a serious mistake, the affliction runs the gamut of symptoms and severity.”

3. Diabolical Oppression:

“There is no possession, loss of consciousness, or involuntary action and word,” just severe to mild events that plague the individual. Fr. Amorth points to Job’s severe afflictions and St. Paul’s thorn in his flesh (II Cor 12:7). Whereas “possession is rare,” Fr. Amorth reveals that he and his fellow exorcists “run into a great number of people who have been struck by the devil in their health, jobs, or relationships.”

4. Diabolic Obsession:

Symptoms include sudden attacks, at times ongoing, of obsessive thoughts, sometimes even rationally absurd, but of such nature that the victim is unable to free himself.” Moreover, “the obsessed person lives in a perpetual state of prostration, desperation, and attempts at suicide. Almost always obsession influences dreams.”

5. Diabolic Infestation:

Infestations affect houses, things, or animals.”

6. Diabolical Subjugation, or Dependence:

Fr. Amorth explains, “people fall into this form of evil when they voluntarily submit to Satan. The two most common forms of dependence are the blood pact with the Devil and the consecration to Satan.”

How Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI Delivered 3 Men From Demonic Possession 

How Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI Delivered 3 Men From Demonic Possession 

Anecdote from the book ‘Exorcist by Profession,’ the testimony of a disciple of Fr. Gabriele Amorth.

A Mexican priest who was an assistant to Roman exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth for four years says: “you never forget your first case of authentic possession”. 

The first one he saw was that of Charles, a French nobleman, who began to feel bad after a spiritual retreat in Dijon, in Burgundy (France). He would go into trances inexplicably, and nothing and nobody could free him.

In the book Exorcist by Profession (Professione esorcista in Italian), authors Fr. Cesare Truqui and Chiara Santomiero, a journalist specializing in the Vatican, explain how an exorcist establishes a dialogue with the presumed victim of the evil one. Once the case is proven to be real—excluding the possibility that it is a strictly psychiatric or medical problem—the exorcist obliges the devil to reveal himself through prayer and questions.

Such was the case of Charles—a tall man (6’3″), happily married, father of one child, whom Benedict XVI freed from the devil just with the power of prayer. The voice that came from the body of the possessed man identified itself: “I am the prince of the world.” Arrogant and haughty in the face of experienced exorcist Francesco Bamonte, it declared, “You are no match for me!” “Who, then?” the exorcist asked; “The pope or a bishop,” the infernal voice replied.

Charles was a normal, successful man, from a wealthy family and noble heritage. The morning of the spiritual retreat, he assaulted with unusual strength someone who was on the retreat with him who had approached him, concerned by his reaction to the prayer. He went through endless appointments with psychiatrists, specialists, and priests. No one could explain his situation, and it was driving him and his family crazy.

Fr. Bamonte felt that he was losing the spiritual battle with Satan on the battleground of Charles’ suffering body, so he consulted Fr. Gabriel Amorth, who encouraged him not to let himself be fooled or frightened. Yet, Satan insisted that only the pope could force him out of Charles’ body.

Charles’ situation got worse. Consequently, they counseled him to write directly to Pope Benedict XVI. The letter made it to the pope by means of a trusted priest, through the Secretariat of State. The answer arrived a week later, signed by the secretary of Pope Ratzinger, promising that the pope would pray for the possessed man.

Benedict XVI offered Masses for the intention of the man’s liberation. Truqui tells that three months later he received a call from Fr. Bamonte: “Father, you’re not going to believe me, but I think that Charles has been liberated!” During the last exorcism, Charles gave a shout of freedom and got up, happy.

The only explanation, according to Truqui, is the powerful prayer of the pope, which forced Satan to his knees. It turns out that Charles’ parents, unknown to him, had made a diabolic pact and offered him, as a child, as tribute in exchange for power and money, together with his twin brother, who was stillborn.

Truqui, who today is a professor during the annual course on exorcism and prayer of liberation organized by the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome (taking place for the 13th time this April 16-21), recounts that he was not frightened by that first contact with a possession; rather, it was enlightening for him to be able to recognize the reality of the spiritual evil described in the Gospel.

A similar episode, also involving Pope Benedict XVI, took place in May 2009, and was described by Fr. Gabriel Amorth himself in the book The Last Exorcist (L’Ultimo exorcista in Italian).

On this occasion, the German pope, who turned 91 on April 16, helped cure two possessed young men, Marco and Giovanni, who were taken to St. Peter’s Square because they seemed not to improve despite the prayers and rite of exorcism. During the general audience that Wednesday, when the popemobile drew near them, they began to have convulsions and to have a strange look in their eyes.

Earlier, one of Fr. Amorth’s two assistants who were accompanying the young men had asked Giovanni how he was. “I’m not Giovanni,” growled a gravelly voice. The assistant didn’t respond, knowing “that only an exorcist can talk with the devil,” Amorth says in the book.

The Pope got out of the jeep and greeted the crowd. The possessed young men shook and drooled. One of the women who were helping shouted, “Your Holiness, Your Holiness, we’re here!” The Pope turned toward them, observing from a distance; unperturbed, he raised his arm and blessed them. The two possessed men felt a violent shake, and were thrown back three yards, Amorth recounts. The young men began to cry. As the popemobile drove away, both came back to themselves.

In the book he wrote with Santomiero, Truqui explains that the devil is afraid of Jesus and of the Virgin Mary—especially of the mother of Christ—but that Lucifer especially battles on earth against the one true Church founded by Christ.

Bishops are the only ones who can send priests as exorcists to carry out this special ministry. However, for a long time, this practice of liberation has been scorned by science and even by some churches that consider belief in possession to be both superstitious and anachronistic. This has led to a lack of prepared priests in some dioceses of northern Europe and other parts of the world.

According to experts in the field, in order to avoid giving publicity to false cases of possession that seem to support the assertion that possession is really just mental or physical illness, we must remember that true demonic possession rarely happens. Sante Babolin, another recognized exorcist, notes that in the thousands of cases that have been addressed in the Diocese of Padua, Italy, only a few—very few—are authentic possessions. Consequently, this is a problem that must be handled with prudence, expertise, and discretion.
