Father Gabriele Amorth, renowned exorcist

The well-known exorcist and priest of the diocese of Rome, Father Gabriele Amorth, has died on September 16th at the age of 91. Over the past 30 years he had performed over 70,000 exorcisms. His views on exorcism have helped lot of people to understand the struggle against evil.

An Exorcist Explains the DemonicUnderstand the struggle against evil

Father Amorth once said that among world leaders, there are “many who listen to the temptations of Satan and follow him”. This is why the world moves towards war and goes so bad. About the so-called Islamic State (Isis) which has been brutally murdering Christians in the Middle East to restaure a caliphate, Father Amorth said in 2015 that “ISIS is Satan”.

In face of the massacre of Christians in the Middle East, Father Amorth said we have to fight “the beast spiritually”. As a Christian I totally agree. But don't think Father Amorth is only concerned about Middle East. Acording to him, “evil is disguised in various ways: political, religious, cultural.” The world is idolatrous, it pursues atheism, put science on the altar and turn away from the Lord.

A demonic spirit is rising in the world, we can see it in the recent laws against nature such as divorce, abortion, 'gay marriage'... This situation has one source of inspiration: “the devil”. Humanity have forgotten God, but God knows how to remind us of His presence. Father Amorth said once “God will soon admonish humanity in a very powerful manner.”

Father Amorth used to underline the importance of the family. For him “divorce has been a disaster; abortion has been a disaster”. Personally I feel concern with euthanasia, broken families, cohabitation etc. Every year about 50 million children are murdered by abortion. Abortion is not only a health disaster for women, but a public health disaster as well in the U.S.

In 1951 Gabriele Amorth was ordained as a preach of the diocese of Rome, in the Society of St. Paul. But it is in 1985, more than thirty years before, that he was appointed exorcist by Cardinal Ugo Poletti. Since then and for 29 years, he performed over 70,000 exorcisms. He founded the International Association of Exorcists in 1990, he retired as president ten years later, in 2000.

He published some books on subjects that included exorcism, freemasonry, and good and evil. In the 1990’s, Father Amorth corresponded with Sister Lucia, the last surviving Fatima visionary, who old him that the age of evil (the attacks on marriage and the family what we have been seeing now for quite some years) would end in a spectacular triumph of God over evil.
