Satan Speaks: ‘I Am The Prince Of This World, I Am Satan’ – Exorcist Claims

Satan Speaks: ‘I Am The Prince Of This World, I Am Satan’ – Exorcist Claims

..Exorcist Claims “The power of casting out demons was one of the signs that Christianity was a true religion.”

In one particular case cited by the priest the devil spoke to him directly. The possessed person “said, ‘I am the prince of this world, I am Satan’, and the hairs on my arms went up. When you listen to a satanic growl, once you listen to the devil’s voice, you can recognise it,” he said.

 

A Catholic priest who has been performing exorcisms for 10 years says that demand for exorcists is on the rise as more and more pastors become convinced that the devil is real and needs to be fought.

“Christ was the first exorcist,” says Father César Truqui, a Mexican priest based in Switzerland. “The power of casting out demons was one of the signs that Christianity was a true religion.”

While the majority of people who come to him for help are dealing with psychological or physical problems rather than diabolical activity, Truqui said in a recent interview, a small percentage undeniably face true demonic “vexation.”

The presence of the devil becomes apparent, the priest said, when a person does what is humanly impossible, such as performing feats of superhuman strength or suddenly speaking in Hebrew or Aramaic despite never having studied the languages.

Other times their voice changes and they growl or speak in tongues, he said, while some reveal knowledge of “secret things,” such as what a person who is not present is doing or wearing. People who are possessed can be overwhelmed by feelings of discomfort when they are in places of worship, he said.

In one particular case cited by the priest the devil spoke to him directly. The possessed person “said, ‘I am the prince of this world, I am Satan’, and the hairs on my arms went up. When you listen to a satanic growl, once you listen to the devil’s voice, you can recognise it,” he said.

Father Truqui worked for four years as assistant to the late Father Gabriele Amorth, one of the most famous exorcists of the last century, who reportedly performed some 100,000 exorcisms during his years of ministry.

Beginning this Monday, the priest will help teach a course in Rome on exorcism for priests and laypeople who want to learn more about demonic activity and how to combat it. The annual course offered by the Sacerdos Institute, titled “Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation,” is now in its 13th year and draws upwards of a hundred students each year.

The course is held at the Regina Apostolorum University in Rome and features speakers including Vatican officials, exorcists, psychologists, physicians and other experts.

The university is a pioneer in this subject, having been the first institution to offer such a program back in 2006. Its exorcism course draws students from diverse backgrounds, including priests, religious sisters, pastoral workers, teachers and doctors.

As Breitbart News reported last month, the demand for exorcists in Italy has tripled in recent years, reaching nearly a half million requests per year.

In an interview with Vatican Radio, Sicilian exorcist Father Benigno Palilla said that more and more Italians are engaging in occult activities, which often serve as a gateway to the demonic.

Some 25 percent of Italy’s adult population regularly visits astrologers, psychics, and tarot card readers, and it is precisely these sorts of activities, Father Palilla said, that “open the door to the devil and to possession.”

Citing experts in the field, Vatican Radio said that the diabolical phenomenon has been “rising sharply.”

In a new teaching letter released this week, Pope Francis said that the “malign power” of Satan is always in our midst and “poisons us with the venom of hatred, desolation, envy and vice.”

Satan is not “a myth, a representation, a symbol, a figure of speech or an idea,” Francis wrote in his letter called Gaudete et Exsultate (“Rejoice and Be Glad”), and falling into this error “would lead us to let down our guard, to grow careless and end up more vulnerable.”

“When we let down our guard, he takes advantage of it to destroy our lives, our families and our communities,” he said. “Like a roaring lion, he prowls around, looking for someone to devour,” he added, quoting from the New Testament first letter of Peter.

Acknowledging the existence of the devil is essential, the pontiff said, because the spiritual warfare Christians fight is not merely “a battle against the world and a worldly mentality” or a “struggle against our human weaknesses and proclivities.”

“It is also a constant struggle against the devil, the prince of evil,” he said.

Pope Francis comforts little Emmanuel as he whispers his question to the Holy Father

During his visit to the parish of Saint Paul of the Cross, in the Corviale neighbourhood of Rome, Pope Francis met with the faithful before celebrating the Sunday Mass.
As is customary in his visits to Roman parishes, Pope Francis took the opportunity to meet with parishioners of St Paul of the Cross before celebrating Sunday Mass for the community.

Ahead of the liturgy, Pope Francis met with young children in catechism courses, as well as the elderly, the poor, and the sick members of the parish; and later heard the confessions of several people.

Most needy at centre of the parish

In his meeting with the elderly, the Holy Father spoke of the “duty” of the parish to be there for the people, “because those who have the greatest need are at the centre of the parish, and at the centre of the Gospel. Everyone faces difficulties in life, but our sorrows and difficulties should not allow us to take away our hope or our joy, the Pope said, “because Jesus has come to ‘ransom’ our wounds with His wounds.” This, he said, is our joy, “Jesus has paid for us, He is close to us, He wants what is good for us.”

Jesus’ ability to change hearts

Pope Francis began his visit with a question and answer session with some of the children of the parish. In a light-hearted exchange, he promised to answer a question about his favourite Bible passage when the children agreed to read it when they got home. He proceeded to tell the story of the conversion of Matthew, which he said “shows the power of Jesus to change a heart.”

All are children of God

When one little girl asked whether those who are not baptized are children of God, the Pope said, “We are all children of God. Everyone! Everyone!” – good people and bad, even those who follow other religions, even Mafiosi. “God has created everyone,” he said. “He loves everyone, and has placed in the hearts of everyone a conscience to recognize what is good, and distinguish it from what is evil.” But when we are baptized, he said, “the Holy Spirit enters into that conscience, and strengthens your belonging to God,” and that, in a certain sense, “makes you even more a daughter of God.”

God has “the heart of a dad”

One of the children appeared embarrassed and afraid to ask the pope his question. However, shortly after,many understood it was because his question was very difficult to answer, “My father has been gone for a short time. He was an atheist, but he baptized his four children. He was a good man. Is Dad in Heaven?”

Seeing the young boy was unable to ask his question, the pope told him to whisper it in his ear. After a few moments of speaking with the child, Pope Francis asked him if he could reveal his question and he said yes.

TEXT:

“Come, come, come.”

“I can’t do it.”

“Come to me, Emanuele. Come and tell me in my ear. Tell me in my ear.”

“If only we could cry like Emanuele when we have pain in our hearts. He cries for his father who died, and had the courage to do so before us because there is love in his heart for his dad. 

I asked Emanuele permission to reveal his question to the public and he said ‘yes.’ “My father died a short time ago. He was an atheist, but he baptized his It’s nice that a son says that about his father, that he “was good.” If that man was able to raise his children like that, then he was a good man. God is proud of your father.” Do you think that God would be able to leave a man like him far from Him? Do you think that? Louder, with courage.”

No!

Pope Francis:

Does God abandon His children?

No! 

Pope Francis:

Does God abandon His children when they are good?

No!

Pope Francis:

Here, Emanuele, this is the answer. God surely was proud of your father, because it is easier when one is a believer to baptize his children, than to baptize them when you are an unbeliever. Surely God like this so much. Talk to your dad, pray for your dad. Thanks Emanuele for your courage.

Watch Pictures! Pope Francis Visits Sick Children Of St. Padre Pio’s Hospital In Southern Italy

A highlight of the visit of Pope Francis to Pietrelcina and San Giovanni Rotondo in southern Italy, 17 March, was when he entered the children’s cancer ward of the “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza” hospital that popular Italian saint Padre Pio founded.


On Saturday Pope Francis visited Pietrelcina and San Giovanni Rotondo in southern Italy on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the stigmata and 50 year of the death of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, or simply Padre Pio. 

The 81-yer old Cappuchin friar, venerated the world over for his holiness, simplicity and poverty,  was born on 25 May, 1887 in Pietrelcina, and died on 23 September, 1968 in San Giovanni Rotondo, where he started the hospital, “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza,” (Home for Alleviating Suffering).

Perhaps the highlight and the most poignant moment of the Pope’s 17 March pastoral visit was when he entered the children’s cancer ward of  the “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza”, one of the most advanced medical facilities in Italy. 

In his insatiable urge to reach out to the poor, marginalized and the defenceless, Pope Francis went about the ward embracing, kissing and caressing the little ones, their parents, animators and hospital staff. 

Here are glimpses of some of the touching moments of this visit.
