The following excerpts are taken from an account by the famous Jesuit priest, Domenico Mondrome, who had a personal encounter with an evil spirit during the ritual performance of an exorcism.
“You will never understand says Satan how deeply I despise you, human beings. You disgust me to no end. You boast of your superior rank to animals, when in fact you are the most wretched among them. Your very existence sickens me. I consider you worse than your pigs. You claim to be intelligent when in point of fact you are stupid. One has only to look at the steady diet of pseudo-scientific slop I feed you on. Yes, and served up by so-called ‘scientists’ – my underlings. Then there’s the trash I serve up in the press. Can you really be His most prized creature? A few little perversities and presto! you are on my side. How readily you fall prey to the blandishments of my messengers! You value your freedom but fall easily into my traps. How easy to deceive you in the name of freedom? You feel disgust when you see something dirty but you readily give in to your filthy passions. You wallow in your wickedness, like swine in the mud. Men cut each other’s throats over a woman or a handful of gold. Not that I’m complaining, mind. So why the big to-do over the One who suffered on the cross to save you? Was anything gained? Save you from what, from sin? Why, you are so deep in sin, you are drowning in it! And then consider what happens when I tempt you with the spirit of jealousy, hatred, competition and vengeance”. “It is the Virgin Mary – adds Satan elsewhere – who most thwarts my designs. She brings destruction to my kingdom. She stands between me and final victory. She may yet be the cause of my defeat. She is always there to hinder me. She incites her fanatics to deprive me of souls. Wherever the stridence of my power extends, she silently multiplies her victories.”
