Hostage to the Devil, Malachi Martin/Glimpses of the Devil ,Scott Peck

I find really important the understanding of the demonic possesion on every day life, nowadays. The tricks of getting a person possesed are worth of a corruption handbook, and the exorcism, at a basic level, a very tested way out of this corruption.
We have constant shelling of "let the corruption in", ( granting inferior free access to superior ), coming from mass media, daily or hourly biased news, and futile ways of living and thinking, all backed from elites.
I share this sentiment, altomaltes.

I was raised Catholic - though I say that loosely. What I mean is, much of my family has Irish Catholic roots, and so the tradition was respected if not practiced devoutly. My parents didn’t practice, but my great uncle helped fund my education at a small Catholic school from first through fifth grade.
In that time, I attended church every Wednesday and Friday with my classmates.

Of course, as a child, the notion if demons and exorcisms seemed particularly fascinating, though the church and curriculum did not place any focus or importance on these stories particularly.

I am not a practicing Catholic now, and in fact I haven’t participated in the church since my confirmation as a teenager. I have always been grateful for the experience though, particularly because the priest at the time was very kind and compassionate, and he was good at explaining the messages in the Bible as what we as children could do to become better.

As far as demons go: I have always appreciated the significance of the demon giving up its name, and of that act as a sort of turning point in working through the possession. On a more mundane level, it is the same sort of turning point we reach when we finally identify the root of a problem. Once a person identifies the broken part of a thing, the broken step of a process, or the fault in logic, then we are able to mend and adapt and progress.

And while the elites are surely meddling in all things, I think it is important to remember that we don’t need their influence to fall prey to possession - at least at this point. Non-elite society and our own psychological conditioning are, at this point, self-sustaining in their corruption unless we become aware and have some sense of the steps we can take.
So, while I am not ordained and certainly don’t carry holy water around, I have found the principles of the biblical stories as well as the modern rite of exorcism to be a fine symbolic rubric when clearing my own stagnant or malignant energy.
