Fr. John Szada, the exorcist for the Diocese of Harrisburg, talks about demonic possession, how it is distinct from mental illness, what individuals and healthcare providers can be looking out for, and what we can all do to keep ourselves safe from evil forces.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- Don’t do it alone. If you’re worried about possession or spiritual warfare, get a spiritual director or speak to your priest to get help.
- The antidote to demonic influence is frequent use of the sacraments.
- Healthcare providers should not hesitate to refer for help when appropriate. Be open to the idea of a spiritual element. Trust your instinct that something might be off.
