Got Demons? Who you Gonna Call?

A Catholic priest of course! 

Fr. Lonenecker shares his experience (H/T Mark Shea):

The call came in through our parish answering service: “Err, I don’t know if you can help with this one, but the person calling says they have demons in their house.”

“Thanks. I’ll give them a call.” The person calling said there were disturbances in their house, and her husband was brought up a Catholic but hardly ever went, and his mother and sisters are all Wiccans. Not good. So I arranged to visit on Sunday after Mass.

I always wear my cassock on Sundays, so I still had on the full cassock, collar and cincture with my Benedictine scapular on top. I made my way to a modest home on the edge of town and knocked on the door. The wife was taken aback. “Wow! I haven’t seen a Catholic priest like this forever!”

    I simply whised to say thanks all over again. I am not sure the things that I would’ve gone through without the actual thoughts shared by you on that question. Previously it was an absolute hard case for me, but being able to view a new professional manner you dealt with that forced me to weep for fulfillment. I’m thankful for the help and even hope you find out what a powerful job that you are undertaking educating the rest via your web blog. Most probably you’ve never got to know any of us.
