Demons attacked in covert operation

Demons attacked in covert operation

A few weeks have elapsed since Mexico became the first country in the world to be subjected to a covert mass exorcism – but we are still awaiting proof that its demons have fled to pastures new.

The Great Exorcism (exorcismo magno) took place in May, and was presided over by Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, above, the Archbishop Emeritus of Guadalajara – and a man who was accused last year of inciting violence against Mexico’s gay community (link is in Spanish).

According to this report, high levels of violence, as well as drug cartels and abortion in the country, were the motivation behind the exorcism which was “carried out quietly” in the Cathedral of San Luis Potos, no doubt to take Satan and his hordes by surprise.

Íñiguez presided at the closed-door ceremony, which was also attended by Archbishop Jesús Carlos Cabrero of San Luis Potosí, Spanish demonologist and exorcist Father José Antonio Fortea and a smaller group of priests and laypeople.

The event was not made known to the general public beforehand. According to Archbishop Cabrero, the reserved character of the May 20 ceremony was intended to avoid:

Any misguided interpretations of the ritual.

Fortea

Fortea, above, said that:

The exorcism performed in San Luís Potosí is the first ever carried out in Mexico in which the exorcists came from different parts of the country and gathered together to exorcise the powers of darkness, not from a person, but from the whole country.This rite of exorcism, beautiful and liturgical, had never before taken place in any part of the world.

The Spanish exorcist explained, however, that the ritual will not automatically change the difficult situation Mexico is going through in a single day.

It would be a big mistake to think that by performing a full-scale exorcism of the country everything would automatically change right away.

We don’t drive out all the evil spirits from a country with just one ceremony. But even though all will not be expelled, those that were removed are not there anymore.

Fortea added:

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. We have to have faith that God conferred on the apostles a power and that we can use this power.

Fortea said that he would now like to see other countries perform the exorcismo magno under the supervision of bishops.

The bishop is the shepherd, and he can use the power he has received to drive away the invisible wolves from the sheep. Since Satan is like a roaring lion, prowling around looking for someone to devour, the shepherds can drive away the predator from the victim.

But while crime still poses a very real threat to Mexicans – roughly 15,649 murders were officially recorded in the country in 2014 – one is more likely to die there from the effects of … sugary drinks.

A study by the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University estimates a staggering 24,000 Mexicans die each year from diabetes, cancer and heart disease that are linked to products like Coca Cola and Gatorade.

    Absolute balderdash, typical of the RCC and they want us to think they are being serious about trying to prevent child abuse.

    Unfortunately I have no Spanish but also wondered whether we need translations of other parts of this story as well, especially the RCC drivel.

    Fortea said in Vaticanish: ” It would be a big mistake to think that by performing a full-scale exorcism of the country everything would automatically change right away. We don’t drive out all the evil spirits from a country with just one ceremony. But even though all will not be expelled, those that were removed are not there anymore.”

    In English: “Nothing is going to happen because of this. We did not actually do anything other than dress up in silly frocks and wave incense about. But as evil spirits cannot be seen (do not exist) you cannot question the number that are here or not (unless you are an educated person and not someone who has been brainwashed, coerced and threatened by our church.”

    Fortea added in Vaticanish: “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. We have to have faith that God conferred on the apostles a power and that we can use this power.”

    In English: “We have done fuck all but you sheeple have no choice but to believe us as we have done our best to take away your power of free thought and demand of you that you accept this bullshit.”

    I was wondering where I’d seen that Cardinal before:

    “You fiend! Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity; have you ever considered a career in the Church?”

    One mass exorcism not enough? Watch out for the call for funds, then. Oh, and we’re talking multinational, remember.

    Mass exorcism might be worth a try in the UK. Cameron does religion and his buddy Eric Pickles is en route to the House of Lords to spread his “biblical truth” there. The BBC seems to me to be susceptible to fundamentalist religious thinking. How far are we from seeing our religious government from attempting a mass exorcism?

    Get the RC top dog on board, he will be keen, invite the Archbishop of Canterbury (who seems to have disappeared) to lend a hand and we might get a result. At one swoop we remove drug addiction, paedophilia, alcoholism, prostitution and, as a really big deal, all the gays suddenly become heterosexual. It’s got to be worth a try.

    My main reservation in implementing is paedophilia, which the RCs and our rulers might not want exorcised, as that seems to be the entertainment of choice for so many of the Great and the Good and RC priests.

    Mass exorcism of the whole country? They are tacitly admitting that prayer doesn’t work then. Or does it work but they thought they’d like a change? In either case the results are invisible (except to persons of ‘faith’).

  6. Stuart H. says:

    If it was a closed door ceremony, the only proof that these fun guys were holding an exorcism is that they say so.

    ‘We held an exorcism’, said a Catholic cardinal.

    ‘We are serious about tackling child abuse’, said a Catholic cardinal.

    See what I mean? Not too convincing, eh? Still, if it keeps them away from the choirboys for a few hours…..

    I wouldn’t bet on it. “God has shown me a way to exorcise demons from your body. Take down your pants.”

    ‘You’re not going to see anything, feel anything; there’s not going to be any extraordinary phenomenon.’

    Sounds pretty pointless bothering, then.

    There’s an easy way to sort out the Demon issue, that is a World wide, all included exorcism so no demon can escape to fresh pastures. The Calypso pope Frank, his gaggle of overdressed staff and assorted child rapists could all get together alterside at the vatican church facility,then after a meal of decomposed deity, undertake the all included exorcism. Great fun ritual, bit of incredulous press coverage and who knows, a few extra dollars in the plate.

    much ado about nothing.

  12. […] you plan on exorcising an entire country – something that happened recently in Mexico – don’t go shouting about it before you start attacking demons with crucifixes, holy water […]
