Exorcist Diary #293: Jesus Knocking at Your Door

["The Light of the World," William Holman Hunt, 1851-1856]

Recently I walked into a building and was approached by a woman who said, "Father, would you pray over me?" I did not know her. I do not think she was Catholic but she recognized my Roman collar and reached out for help. I responded, "I am happy to.' I placed one hand on her head and another on her shoulder and, in the midst of that crowded public place, I prayed. I have no doubt God blessed her. She was deeply grateful and publicly said so when I returned a few hours later.

I then walked outside the building. There was a woman who had fallen and was lying on the ground in a bit of blood. She was surrounded by police and friends waiting for an ambulance. In a quiet moment, I simply introduced myself as a priest. She looked up, saw my Roman collar, and practically screamed with disdain and anger: "Get him away from me!" She laced her speech with four-letter words.

This second encounter was a bit unnerving. Earlier that day I had conducted an exorcism. I recognized the woman's voice as similar to that of demons. They shout: "Get away from me!" Their demonic rants are laced with profanity, arrogance, hatred, and terror. They hate priests and are terrified of them.

I felt very bad for the second woman. Her body needs some healing. But I believe her soul is in the greatest need of healing. Jesus said, "Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me. And whoever rejects me rejects the One who sent me" (Lk 10:16). I ask you all to join me in prayer for her.

Some mystics have had the "grace" of being given a vision of hell. One such mystic, accompanied by her guardian angel, saw two souls that she knew suffering intensely in the fire. Instinctively, she leaned forward to help, but her angel held her back saying, "There is no help for they who have willfully chosen fire."

Jesus comes to each of us daily in many disguises. Will we say "yes" to him and welcome him into our hearts? "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me" (Rev 3:20).
