The article simplifies the issue of exorcism to an unhelpful and misleading degree. Exorcism is often times not a thing completed within one session, as Fr. Amorth has made clear in his book. The article seems to suggest that Bl. Pope John Paul II failed and therefore exorcism was an imaginary thing.
As for Fr. Amorth’s account that the woman “walked up the wall against all laws of gravity”, well, I don’t know. Obviously secularists and atheists will dismiss this as absurd. We don’t know whether it actually happened, but I do believe that there is inexplicable behaviour in the possessed. If, for example, they can be aware of the unknowable, it doesn’t seem far fetched they could do these things. It may have happened, it mightn’t have. We would only know if we had been there with Fr. Amorth.
Interesting Benedict is mentioned. I like to think of our Popes (I am still awed by the fact I can say “our” Popes ) as our Generals in spiritual battle. :knight2:
Be aware, that “blessings” can often be misunderstood, esp. by the media, to be “exorcisms”. Remember Pope Francis’ case a few months back?
