Being a Christian and demonologist I was surprised how the Catholic church decided to advertise their alleged power over the country of Mexico. Its decisions like this that push people to reconsider their faith in the Catholic church.

I must admit to being a bit shocked that Father José Antonio Fortea, a well known author, exorcist and demonologist participated in this ceremony. He is well known for his expertise in the spiritual world and does not seek media attention.

It is no surprise that many no longer accept the teachings of the Catholic church when they display this type of behavior in public. The Vatican, Pontiff University, teaches that due to numerous dangers when practicing an exorcism, the exorcism is to be done in private and in secret not for entertainment or for public display which includes making announcements and/or advertisements for security reasons.

Another weak attempt trying to regain their dominance over people, something they lost many decades ago.



Catholic priests from around Mexico gathered at a central cathedral to do what they could to help fight the country's crime problem, targeting the demons that may be causing it.

Led by Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, the archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, a group of priests including an exorcist from Spain conducted a closed-door ritual at the cathedral in the city of San Luis Potosí.

The religious leaders then performed a 'Magno Exorcismo' or Great Exorcism, to help Mexico as it struggles with crimes linked to gang violence and drug trafficking.

Father José Antonio Fortea, the Spanish exorcist and demonologist, told the Catholic News Agency that the ceremony, held on May 20, that 'this rite of exorcism, beautiful and liturgical, had never before taken place in any part of the world'. The aim of the ceremony was to drive out demons that had been tempting the people of Mexico to sin. Father Fortea did not give details of the ceremony in Mexico, but he has previously published a book called 'El Exorcismo Magno' that details different parts of the liturgy. His ceremony is designed around the four cardinal directions, with distinct prayers, chants and names of saints said for North, South, East and West. It also includes a section concerning the Door to the Abyss in which one of the participants hits the ground with a ceremonial hammer between calls for the Virgin Mary to close the entrance to Hell and keep the Ancient Snake away. While he acknowledges that some may view the ceremony as 'magical or esoteric', he says the ceremony is not too complex. 'Our secularized society of the 21st century requires the large liturgies just the same as medieval society,' he wrote.

Pope Francis said last month that the devil 'was punishing' Mexico, the second largest Catholic country in the world behind Brazil, with violence.
Beyond drug crime, other motivating factors for the exorcism including the bishops' opposition to the decriminalization of abortion in Mexico City and permitting gay marriages. The Mexican religious website Ver y Creer reported in December that a Magno Exorcismo had been scheduled for that month was abruptly cancelled. While a whole country exorcism has never been performed, St Francis of Assisi is thought to have once exorcised the entire city of Arezzo, southeast of Florence. The priests who performed last month's exorcism do not expect an immediate end to Mexico's problems. 'When the exorcists of a country drive out its demons, it has to be done in faith. You’re not going to see anything, feel anything, there’s not going to be any extraordinary phenomenon,' Father Fortea said.

**OR**

This is a legitimate attempt to do something for the spiritual betterment of the country.

You must surely be aware of the Vatican's direction to consecrate Russia from Fatima. Whole countries are dealt with on a spiritual matter at times.

I would be far more interested to understand what lead a priest who clearly knows what he is doing in this field to do such a public act.

Bravo to the priest.Not all catholics are bad..Getting a good vibe from Jose.

Did you know that demons are the serpent that tricked eve into eating from the forbidden tree?

The serpent has absolutly nothing to do with Lucifer who is gods son as well as Jesus.

These demons are called elohim.When excorcising them use this name not demons.

Did you know the serpent was actually a woman that was created at the same time as Adam as EQUALS. Check all art from before 1700 and all the art depicts it as a half woman half serpent. Check it out. Very in lightening

Fascinating subject which for me goes under the heading "the real myths of the past. Whenever has religion shown us something in our time that is so amazing such as either God himself, an Angel, a Miracle or especially a Daemon to actually qualify its existence. The majority of people have their own moral compass within themselves and it works just fine, without the religious prejudice and over-pious mentality each religion instills into kids during their formative years.

Trouble in the West is that now we have muslims bringing their nonsensical 'marid, ifrit, shaeton, jinn and janns' up if they can tell people all about their marvellous religion. Add that to the other two desert ones and you have a wealth of 2 fighting sets of invisible beings no one has ever seen apart from heard about.

The occult has so many sigils for different for these beings etc that a whole industry making money has existed around this and damn it, its interesting and many of us will read through it wasting our time and money, I have.

But in the cold light of day or darkness of evening has anyone ever seen a daemon? Not according to the news where today virtually anything can be streamed on-line - so why the shyness of all things religious to manifest, simply because they are the inventions of religious men in order to get you to support their lifestyles. These men exist determined to scare people into doing their will. They tell stories to make people frightened that if they don't do as they are told and cough up financially at the end of each meeting they must attend, when they die something terrible will happen to them. Again, something never proven which aids their continual existence off the rest of the workers.

The actual role of priests and the work they do is a joke in truth, because they are the only ones who deal in 'after death ordeal they tell you you will suffer'. The common jobs they did/do, are all done by professional or volunteers who have been in the main trained e.g. If you are ill you get a doctor or nurse, You don't get a miracle cure from a priest. If you have emotional problems or trauma you get a therapist. Professional charities exist for you to help others supposedly directly.

There is no role for religion today apart from the needy whom religion created by frightening those people in the first place. People are hopefully examining religions claims, boasts and threats and realising they themselves have the power to reach spiritually from within themselves, without some dictatorial, non-elected little know-it-all duping them.

No religious man can prove he is in touch with a God and in this empirical world, some proof is needed, especially if one wants to believe in daemons. I wonder if Mexico has changed in any way since this exorcism? The crime and reasons for it existing in the first place need to be tackled in a worldly manner by worldly agencies not men wafting round in frocks and fish head hats on. A contribution from the catholic church to the agencies would have made a huge difference when crime first started increasing and might have stopped it from becoming the problem it is today had the moral necessity of action by the church been enacted - but again perhaps that's way to worldly for that institution and where is the fun in taking away the guilt except from those especially who are truly guilty?

Check out the proper mythology please. Not a serpent in the sense you think of today. Why would god curse a snake to forever crawl on his/her belly if he already did to begin with, not a punishment. Think about it and check out the mythology, art. Because of her sin, eve was formed from Adams rib, seen as not equal for the serpent ladies action.

what does a demonologist do? any personal stories?

Interesting



Around the year 1100 A.D., Satan was on the MOVE preparing for the last quarter of world history which was to begin with the discovery of the New World and the Reformation. In 1066, England was invaded and subjugated by Roman Catholic William the Conqueror, and a century later Hibernia (Ireland), was annexed to England and Rome by the grandson of William the Conqueror.

In 1139, the country of Portugal was created which became the homeland of the fake "discoverer" Christopher Columbus.

During all of this Satanic activity in the Old World, Satan was also very active on both sides of the Atlantic ocean. After the Resurrection of Christ, many of Satan's most powerful demons were unable to carry on their activities in the Old World . . . so they emigrated to the New!!

Satan's monstrosities or GIANTS had already found a refuge in the New World when they fled from Joshua during the conquest of the Promised Land (1500 B.C. ).


The migration of the Aztec or Mexican nation to the PROMISED LAND!!

Around the year 1100 A.D., a demon god named Huitzilopochtli told a warlike tribe of Indians named the Mexica or Mexicans to leave their land and travel south in order to seek a PROMISED LAND....This journey seems to be a Satanic mockery or travesty of the travels of the Israelites to the real Promised Land.

Ahha god is real?

Yet he lets people die every day. Children, innocent, without sin. And he does it in such a way that mothers and fathers weep while you all rejoice.

and so now what is this? We've heard of exorcisms before. Hard to come by if you watch the movies, the old codgers are really reluctant to help a guy these days, it seems.

But lo! They can exorcise ENTIRE countries now? Why stop there? Do what your damn GOD will not, exorcise the entire planet, rid the world of evil.

Or is this just more hot air being blown up stupid peoples balloon holes?

Now excuse me, I must go raise my space hamsters. They are growing restless...
