Why More Interest in Exorcisms? Family Reflection Video

Return to the Church

The Devil is real and lives among us. Are you ‘possessed’ ?

True demonic possessions are rare. There is much more evidence of people who obsess over something to a point that they become sick. It could be said of people who consider themselves possessed that too much time and effort is spent listening to hostile voices instead of the voice of God.

Instead of a relationship with God we all too often enter into an obsessive relationship with someone or something other than God and become poisoned, possessed. In the Gospel today Jesus challenges us to step away from ambivalence about Him.

He’s asking us to take a stand. What can you and your family do together to ensure you’re moving towards the Kingdom of God?

In these remaining weeks of Lent, may family prayer serve to strengthen your relationships, better hear His voice and follow His commands.
