Roman Exorcist Says the Battle Against Evil Begins In the Family

rosarioonline

Roberta Sciamplicotti - published on 03/10/15





He also recommends “abandoning any behavior that manifests an attitude of indifference, apathy and lack of interest in the good, so as to live in deep peace and with a good conscience”. And he advises that one remain “in communion with God” by "abandoning practical atheism and a life of sin.”

Finally, he counsels humility, faith, prayer, frequenting the Sacraments, living a Christian life in conformity with the Gospel, words of charity, and forgiving one’s enemies.

“If there is one sure way to remove us from the devil’s influence,” he notes, “it is by letting ourselves be attracted by the goodness and beauty that emanate from the good and from our God and Father.”

Fr. Amorth concludes the interview by saying that the Lord grants to both exorcists and all the baptized “all of the grace needed to face and overcome the devil. For everyone can respond to his threats: ‘I am wrapped in the mantle of Our Lady; what can you do to me? I have St. Michael the Archangel on my side, try fighting with him. I have my guardian angel watching over me lest I be touched; you cannot do anything’.”

Translation by Diane Montagna of Aleteia’s English edition.
