Yesterday I heard of someone I know who has been having trouble with many ghosts in her house. T heir presence has severely affected her life and that of her family. Fortutiously she had her house blessed by a priest last sunday and since then they have slept really well.
I was thinking about this situation and what I've read about ghosts in the past.
Especially from An Exorcist Tells his Story by Fr Gabriel Amorth.
If I'm not mistaken Fr Amorth says that usually houses become 'infested' because of the lifestyle of the people living there. Eg they behave in immoral and sinful ways, take drugs or dabble in the occult, palm reading, and other such things.
What can be done about this??
Any daemon hates the Cross and Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother with great venom. We all need to place crucifixes and blessed images of Our Lady in every room.
We all need to regularly go to mass and receive the blessed Eucharist. Fr Amorth says that frequent confession and reception of Holy Communion is the most efficacious way of preventing more infestations. possessions, obsessions etc.
We should not place our trust in witchcraft, crystals, burning of oils that are not sacramentals. We also should not have TVs - an American Exorcist Fr Wolf says that they attract the Evil One. Our faith, love and hope in Jesus Christ and CONSTANT PRAYER is all that is needed. To use crystals is placing faith in sources other than Our Lord and attracts the Devil.
Let us all go to Mass and Confession more frequently!!!!! Learn how to pray if you do not know already. Not yoga-related meditation, but Christian Meditation upon the Gospels and contemplation of Jesus' presence in the Eucharist.
This is all a very poor translation of what Fr Amorth says. But the main message is that we should abandon all articles of superstition and develop a greater love for our Lord and his Blessed Mother who crushed the head of the serpent.
