In the book “My Name is Satan” written by Fabio Ragona, the author writes: “The devil is present in the Bosnia parish and also attacks the visionaries.”
These words reported by the Vaticanist, come from an interview with Archbishop Henryk Hoser, appointed by Pope Francis as special apostolic visitor for the parish.
“Yes, it’s true,” explains Archbishop Hoser, “there are cases of demonic manifestations; I can say they are rare, but sometimes you can hear someone screaming or ranting, even in gatherings of ten thousand people. This is happening here; it cannot be denied. Of course, this does not happen every day, but it does happen here. In addition, it sometimes happens that the possessed want to attack the visionaries.”
Fabio Marchese Ragona’s book has been read attentively in the Vatican, notably by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, who headed the study commission on the events of Medjugorje.
This commission returned its report in 2017. Importantly, it recognized the first seven Marian apparitions which would have occurred from June 24 to July 3, 1981, affirming that the first phenomena noted in the Bosnian city did not have demonic origin.
Cardinal adds: “As we know, we cannot exclude that the devil is present in the midst of good things; it is enough to remember that he can tempt the saints. St. Anthony, for example, was very tempted by the devil. This is not something incompatible in the place of Marian apparitions.”
Our Lady confirms that the devil exists but goes further by warning the faithful that he is active. She says: message on January 25, 2017
“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for peace: peace in human hearts, peace in the families and peace in the world. Satan is strong and wants to turn all of you against God, and to return you to everything that is human, and to destroy in the heart all feelings towards God and the things of God. You, little children, pray and fight against materialism, modernism and egoism, which the world offers to you. Little children, you decide for holiness and I, with my Son Jesus, intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
Through the years, Our Lady has spoken of the devil and satan over one hundred times and so it is no surprise that Vatican officials have taken notice.
In a very recent apparition Our Lady again reminded the world of Satan’s plans. She said to Maria on June 25, 2021: “I am calling all of you: pray with me for peace and freedom, because Satan is strong and by his deception, wants to lead away all the more hearts from my motherly heart.
To counter the activities of Satan the Celestial Mother asks us to pray to the angels for our protection.
She said on August 2, 20o5: “I have come to you with open arms in order to take you into my embrace, under my mantle. I cannot do so as long as your heart is filled with false glitters and false idols. Clean your heart and allow my Angels to sing in it! At that time I’ll take you under my mantle and I’ll give you my Son, true peace and happiness.
Return to God and to prayer, and may prayer begin to reign in your hearts, families and communities, so that the Holy Spirit may lead and inspire you to every day be more open to God’s will and to His plan for each of you. I am with you and with the saints and angels intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
