Default Some Christian things you can do to get rid of ghosts

These are some things to do if your house is haunted:

1. Get a gallon of holy water and spray it all over your house, likewise get some holy salt and sprinkle it all over your house if you see an apparation be prepared to spray it with holy water or salt. Ghosts (who i believe are really demons in disguise) can't stand holy water. they are so unholy that putting holy water is like putting nitric acid on them

1. at the sight of an apparation start praying...or say "In the mighty name (or by the blood of) of Jesus I command you to leave this house!" over and over again make the sign of the cross and say "I plead the blood of Jesus that you will leave this house and go back from whence you came!" I heard on TV if you plead the blood of Jesus it is a very powerful prayer
remember that unholy things can't stand the name of Jesus they flee at the sound of it
other wise you could do the old fashioned calling out to God in a panic yelling "JESUS HELP ME! JESUS HELP ME!" over and over again. Surely he hears you up in heaven and he is the same today as back then maybe He will get rid of ghost in your house.
if your ghost doesn't like prayer it is probably because it knows God will act and is trying to make you stop

3. hang pictures of God and Jesus all over your house

4. have a priest come and bless the house

5. have a priest come and exorcist the house

6. keep praying for God to get rid of ghosts

other things you can do:

1. call ghost hunters to come and look at your house

2. call a psychic to examine the house

3. use a smudge stick

Being that it's in the Back Fence forum, and looking at the last 3 (and the running around screaming in panic part), I think it's a bit tongue-in-cheek.

well, as we are on a Catholic forum, and I am a faithful Catholic....1 and 2 are against Church teaching.

3. What the heck is a smudge stick? .

Here's my suggestion:

Pray for their release from Purgatory to Heaven, as many are souls working out their Purgatory.

If you think it is demonic, contact a Priest.

Holy Water and other Blessed Sacramentals are a good thing to have around your house, that is true.

If you own your own house, you probably won't want to be throwing salt around in the corners (inside), as it is a corrosive.


God Bless you.

well I certainly hope so, especially since ghosts are not demons in disguise (isn't that an Elvis tune?)

Yes, "ghosts" are often demons. Certainly those contacted through seances are. Haunting spirits, from what I've read, are usuall poor souls from purgatory. "Ghost hunters" and "psychics" are un-Christian. Scooby-doo, I've heard, is agnostic.

Play praise music and worship God.

If you move and this follows you, it's a demon.
