A psychiatrist who works with exorcists July 1, 2016

writes a piece for the WaPo about this disturbing work:

My subject’s behavior exceeded what I could explain with my training. She could tell some people their secret weaknesses, such as undue pride. She knew how individuals she’d never known had died, including my mother and her fatal case of ovarian cancer. Six people later vouched to me that, during her exorcisms, they heard her speaking multiple languages, including Latin, completely unfamiliar to her outside of her trances. This was not psychosis; it was what I can only describe as paranormal ability. I concluded that she was possessed.

The world is larger and stranger than we know.  Thanks be to God for the saving power of Christ!
