Real footage of an exorcism in Italy

    I found this on facebook posted.

    It proves to be very interesting and I thought some of you would like to see it.

    It's a little scary if you're alone at home!!


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j82LWgqSnKc

    Edit:  I noticed in the video that the priest talks of "blows" to the devil in the form of holy water and prayers (not physical). It says the girl voluntarily goes for this...I 've seen different videos -there's more on youtube and they all talk in another language- I believe it's Latin
    ...I know the priest spoke in Latin (the language of the Catholic Church) because In Nomine Patrae et Filio et Spiritu Santo literally translates into; In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

    I have mixed feelings about these exorcisms. I can't say they are not true because I've never been posessed, but I wonder if the families of these individuals take them to seek medical help prior to exorcism. There are a lot of young teenagers that are dying to get attention one way or another.

      Hi Klara,

      I see your point, but I don't think every person who is "possessed " could all be exhibiting the same behavior and speaking Latin or other languages.

      Maybe you'd need to see one in person to decide, I don't know!

      I'm assuming they would seek medical help first. In the movie (true story ) The Exorcism of Emily Rose, it tells how the girl sought medical help first.......

    ..yea...i went through the old 'i'm possessed by the devil' stage in my teens...it was a good excuse for everything i was up to....you know that old expression 'the devil made do it'....it worked.....

    i have to agree with klara.  I think it's possible exorcism might exist.  however, a lot of teens will do almost anything to get attention these days.  in fact, that's one of the reasons why you see all these teenage girls acting like tramps or why people join gangs or cut themselves, as the parents don't often give them the attention or the discipline they need sometimes.  However, I do think it's possible but since I haven't seen a possessed person before, so i really don't know...

      I used to think I was possessed when I got bipolar because I wanted it to go away, I think I asked a few people and the priest but they said I was not.
      I know I have a medical condition (which sux but it can't be cured by exorcism)

      I think it would be very frightenening to be possessed and know there are devils in you.

      The behavior you're talking about Steven, I've seen yes and I had a ex-friend who practices wicca, used to burn her arms w/ cigarettes, and we both read or read tarot cards.

      But there's a difference I think In burning your arms becasue you are depressed (I  think was her case) than

      being put in front of holy water, crucifixes and SPEAKING languages you don't know which is interpeted in the video as words which the priest knows this language (Latin)

      I just don't see why all these kids or people would know Latin today and all act the same

      As for it being a hoax....I guess you'd to request to be there. (The screams gave me chils.....)

      I can't prove it but I for one just believe it. hmm

        Oh and the inhuman strength of breaking steel clips used to restrain them, and just the things they do- I don't think could be copied.

        well, im not doubting the possibility that these events do exist.  i just don't believe every person that says they've been possessed or every person that claims to have saw someone that has.  just like I believe in aliens, but i don't necesarily believe anyone that tells me they saw an alien. anyone that tells me that they have, i'd be more inclined to ask if they're on drugs or drinking heavily.  no offense to anyone here.

        however, i do think it's possible, as i have my own reasons to believe in such things.  which i won't disclose here, as i doubt you all want to hear my logic behind my beliefs.

          sometime maybe we'll talk about your logic behind your beliefs in private ! smile (or maybe not! ) hmm wink

          I get it, it's ok!

          But maybe some people on the edge of spiritual breakthrough will be converted!

          As for me, I am more logical now that ever ......

        my son can do blood-curdling screams as a reaction to certain food preservatives - the superstitious might say he is possessed.  It is from an irritation to the brain from these chemicals

    It is simply superstition; has got nothing to do with the Truthful religion.
