Catholic Exorcist and author of “Diary of An American Exorcist”, Father Stephen Rosett warns the Catholic faithful about demonic invasions into our homes. He also offers important advice on how to protect our homes.
The Queen of Peace has also spoken of the activities of the demonic world which seek to enter our homes.
From the beginning of the apparitions, Our Lady recommended that we carry on ourselves, and place in our homes objects blessed by a priest. She asked that we renew the use of holy and exorcised water.
To protect ourselves from evil in its various forms, the Church has given us Sacramentals, let us not ignore them.
Father Rosetti writes: A possessed woman was away from her room on an errand. Not known to her, I blessed and exorcized it using holy water. I also sprinkled exorcized salt in the corners on the floor. Then I took exorcized oil and made a sign of the cross on the door, windows, and lintels. But when I left, nothing different could be seen by the human eye.
The next day, she texted me:
Possessed Woman: Did you do something to my room?
Priest-exorcist: Why do you ask?
Possessed Woman: You blessed my room.
Priest-exorcist: How could you tell?
Possessed Woman: Something changed and They ( the demons) hated it They still do.
This brief exchange was illuminative. First, it helped confirm the woman was possessed. She had “occult knowledge.” There is no way she could have known I blessed and exorcized her room. She received this knowledge through the demons. Having occult knowledge is a strong sign of true possession. Second, it confirms the power and importance of having a priestly blessing, especially blessing our homes.
The demons hate it and are repulsed by it.
There is the case of a possessed woman who could see the demon that typically tormented her, stay outside when she entered a blessed house, It peered through the window while she was inside but did not enter.
A blessed home is a holy place and the demons in the possessed are repulsed by anything holy.
All should have their homes blessed, preferably by a priest who “should gladly cooperate.” But if a priest or deacon is not available, the Church’s revised Book of Blessing ( allows a home to be blessed by a layperson.
“Lord, be close to your servants who move into this home (today) and ask
for your blessing. Be their shelter when they are at home, their companion
when they are away, and their welcome guest when they return. And at last
receive them into the dwelling place you have prepared for them in your
Father’s house, where you live for ever and ever. Amen.”
Then the people and the home are sprinkled with holy water while the minister says: “Let this water call to mind our baptism into Christ, who has redeemed us by his death and resurrection.”
