Why St. Bruno is the patron saint of exorcists and possessed persons
St. Bruno's depiction in art and his reputation for holiness of life have led to his patronage against demonic possession.
St. Bruno was the founder of the Carthusian Order and was highly regarded for his holy and virtuous life. He is widely known as the patron of exorcists and possessed persons and is invoked against demonic possession.
It is difficult to pinpoint the exact reason why St. Bruno receives this designation, but there is some evidence that can help us sort it out. - Aleteia
What The Church Has Said About ‘Ghosts’
Note that Christ mentioned both demons and ghosts, which one can also call “revenants.” Let’s look at those mentions. “When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. ‘It’s a ghost,’ they said, and cried out in fear (Matthew 14:16). “They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost,” was the way Luke 24:37 put it. “Look at My hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have,” said Jesus (Matthew 24:39).
He would not have mentioned “ghost” if ghosts did not exist and His disciples would not have feared such entities if they didn’t think such entities could cause damage. - Spirit Daily

How Should a Catholic React to an Encounter with a Ghost?
"As Catholics, we believe that God, the maker of all things visible and invisible, created the world around us with more going on than what lies on the surface. On a normal day, this brings to mind the presence of the divine or saintly intercession. As Halloween approaches, however, this line of the Nicene Creed makes us ponder the most popular of spooky invisible phenomena: ghosts." - Aleteia
Blessed Holy Water of the Catholic Church and Sacred Scripture
"The holy and living waters of the Catholic Church has been flowing throughout the millennia. Holy water is mentioned in Sacred Scripture in the Old Testament, alluded to in New Testament, and there are many verses in the Bible about water being a source of life, a way of purification for us mortals, and a supernatural blessing from God.." - Catholic Ace
What is an Angel? - James Brent O.P.
"God has revealed to us the reality of angels and demons and by doing so, he is telling us something intelligible and wonderful, something that shows us the grandeur of God and illuminates our experience in many ways. We want to understand the angels as much as possible in order to understand the ways of God and the ways of the spiritual life. Thomas Aquinas is often called the angelic doctor because of his profound and extensive teaching on the angels, both the good and the bad ones." - James Brent

An Exorcism in 1907
"Not long ago, the following authentic case of possession was communicated to the editor of Rome by the Rt. Rev. Mgr. Delalle, Titular Bishop of Natal, Africa. The bishop wrote:
Two months ago, I promised the editor of “Rome” an account of certain facts that happened in my vicariate last year (May 1907) concerning two native girls whom I believe to have been possessed by the devil." - Catholic Exchange
As a Psychiatrist, I diagnose mental illness. Also, I help spot demonic possession - Richard Gallagher
"I’ve helped clergy from multiple denominations to filter episodes of mental illness , which represent the overwhelming majority of cases, from, literally, the devil’s work. It’s an unlikely role for an academic physician. The same habits that shape what I do as a professor and psychiatrist led me to aid in the work of discerning attacks by what I believe are evil spirits and, just as critically, differentiating these extremely rare events from medical conditions." - Richard Gallagher

Why are Women Becoming Witches - Suzannah Lipscomb
Sadly, occultism and witchcraft are on the rise. This article outlines why witchcraft and magic as a whole are appealing to modern society, especially through a feminism gone awry. It is important to realize how spiritually dangerous this trend is and to warn people against the practice of witchcraft and magic, which are
condemned in the Bible and the consistent teaching of the Church. As the Bible says: “Let there not be found among you anyone who …practices divination, or is a soothsayer, augur, or sorcerer, or who casts spells, consults ghosts and spirits, or seeks oracles from the dead. Anyone who does such things is an abomination to the Lord…” (Dt 18:10-12)
Generational Spirits - Fact or Fiction? - Ray Sullivan
"[E]xorcists and charismatic priests both attest to the fact that there also negative effects through the ages caused by the sins of our fathers. And while original sin is the ONLY sin inherited by us all, they claim that the effects (contamination of the family tree) of serious sin (not the guilt of the sin itself) of our ancestors can also affect us today" - Generational Spirits- Fact or Fiction?

Yoga poses send messages to the spirit world, attracting spirits of Hinduism." - Yoga Poses as Devotion in Motion
