As a young seminarian at college, Fr. Stephen Rossetti had his own brush with evil as he was about to fall asleep one night. Suddenly he experienced an “unbelievable force. I felt quickly being overwhelmed but no physical manifestation.” Rossetti concluded it was only one thing — a “demonic attack.” He leapt out of bed and lunged for his rosaries. “The moment I touched my rosary beads, this attack stopped Rossetti has advice for keeping the demons away: “I tell people, put crucifixes in your home, holy water in a font at home, religious statues around the house, and say your rosary.
A Catholic priest performs up to 20 exorcisms every week to free people and their homes from what he calls “demons and satanic evil.”
Stephen Joseph Rossetti, 70, claims he’s seen countless demons at work over his 13 years in the exorcism business and apparently it’s getting worse.
From TVs turning on and off to people spewing foreign objects like nuts and bolts, the professor and priest has revealed all in his new book: Diary of an American Exorcist. Demons, Possession, and the Modern-Day Battle Against Ancient Evil.
Speaking to the New York Post, the 70-year-old said how exorcisms have “grown exponentially” over the past 10 years.
“There is so much evil in the world that demons enter your homes and begin to attack you in many ways, such as disturbances, quarrels between family members and neighbors, cursing and other other attacks that the demon use- they and hit people where they are most weak and in pain.
In order to defend against that evil in the house, you should have strong faith, a Bible that protects you from attacks, and other sacred blessed objects.
The Exorcist has seen televisions turning on and off to people throwing up foreign objects like nuts and bolts.
The Catholic exorcist and author warns the faithful about demonic invasions of our homes. He added: “I think this is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.”
Since technology has improved, the priest claims that demons are finding new ways to reach people. Stephen said a woman contacted him after an upside-down cross appeared “burnt” in her shoulder.
Stephen says he has experienced evil beyond this world.
Recalling one exorcism, he wrote: “They (possessed women) waved their fingers at me and shook their heads. ” I was ordering the demons to leave and the answer was pretty clear: ‘No!'”
The monsignor moved closer and made direct eye contact with the woman. Holding a crucifix six inches from her face, he cried out: “Ecce crucem Domino: fugite partes adversae” — Latin for “Behold the Cross of the Lord: take flight, you hostile powers.”
As he sprinkled the woman with holy water, her body began to spasm.
“In an exorcism, the demons are engulfed in a holy torture that we believe is worse than the fires of hell,” writes Rossetti. “They were writhing in pain.”
Sometimes, the demons cause him physical anguish. Rossetti recalls in his book a case in which he started the prayers of liberation for a mild demonic possession of a middle-aged man.
“My stomach became instantly nauseated, and the ill feeling quickly spread to my head and the rest of my body,” the monsignor recalled of the demon’s attack on him. “My whole being felt spiritually pummeled throughout the session.”
And then there was the young woman who reached out to him after an upside-down cross appeared “burned” into her shoulder. At the same time, her dad was receiving “snarky” text messages from demons. “The texts were a typical demonic rant: ‘She belongs to us,’ ” Rossetti said.
Rossetti said the messages appeared to come from the phone number of the woman. Upon careful investigation, however, Rossetti insisted there was no evidence of her having sent the messages.
“By the way, several exorcists have had the same experience, getting texts from demons, and why not?” Rossetti said. “In the past they messed with electronics — TVs and lights turning off and on by themselves. Now they mess with cellphones.”
The woman had more to worry about than texts from hell, though.
“As a child, the father dedicated her to Satan,” Rossetti said. “If someone is perverted enough to join a satanic cult to begin with, then it’s not a stretch to imagine them offering their children to their ‘god.’
He also offers important tips on how to protect your homes. The Queen of Peace at Medjugorje also spoke about the workings of the demonic world that seeks to enter our homes.
From the beginning of the apparitions, Our Lady recommended that we ourselves carry and place in our homes the objects blessed by the priest.
She asked us to restore the use of holy and exorcised water. In order to protect ourselves from evil in various forms, the Church gave us sacramental, so let’s not neglect them.
Is his time coming to an end, so he uses all the forces of evil to attack you, but in trust in God and the power of faith, nothing can be done to you, the Lord will protect you and He has strengthened His protection against evil in the world that rules. Pray in your homes that the Lord’s hand will protect you, pray over your children and others around you. Read the Bible every day and listen to spiritual music in your homes. God Bless you in your home.
