Fr. Amorth is Rome’s leading exorcist. His book, “An Exorcist Tells His Story” is not sensationalist, but written as a first hand account of what is really happening on the front lines of the spiritual war. Demons are real. The interview reprinted here was originally conducted in 2000, but is a reminder that ghosts and goblins aren’t all make believe. Since the revised norms performing exorcisms were promulgated, there have been growing complaints (from priests) that the new rites “doesn’t work” at driving out demons. If these statements are accurate, that’s definately a problem… In this interview, Fr. Amorth explains some of the difficulties he encountered during the process of revising the rite of exorcism, and provides advice on how to protect yourself and your family from the “wickedness and snares of the devil.”
