ALMOST all demons in hell are now on earth where the antichrist of all antichrists in history is expected to ascend to world power. As much is being warned in the messages being given to credible mystics of our times.

It’s not only in the affairs of mankind that this seems evident, but also in the unusual aberrations in nature. Sins have pushed off God, creating enough room for the devil and his minions to hatefully toy with earthlings and their earth, nay, universe.

Even in our daily lives, there seems to be increased malevolence and I may have experienced a little of it. Recently as I sat on a dentist’s chair, someone deflated the front tire of my old van. Earlier, despite spending my recent years almost totally cloistered at home while taking care of my elderly parents and three orphaned nieces, I got a summons to immediately rush to Camp Crame to explain myself to a top police officer, whom I didn't even know existed, for allegedly using his person in vain. And, yes, my writing goes grammatically haywire more frequently now as readers must have noticed. Plus many other things that make me suspect one of those demons unfettered from hell has been assigned to me. Oh but I’d rather that these are taken more as jest than for serious consideration ... .until the next episode convinces me otherwise.

That demons are espacially “at work” in our days was said so by the Blessed Mother in her message in her apparition in Medjugorje on June 25, 2022 as follows:

“Dear children, I rejoice with you and thank you for every sacrifice and prayer which you have offered for my intentions. Little children, do not forget that you are important in my plan of salvation of mankind. Return to God and prayer that the Holy Spirit may work in you and through you. Little children, I am with you also in these days when Satan is fighting for war and hatred. Division is strong and evil is at work in man as never before. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (End of quote.)

In one of my past columns, I said I would share the prayers used for the blessing of exorcised water and salt which, once said Canadian mystic Fr. Michel Rodrigue, should be used to bless our homes as protection from evil.

Exorcised water and salt are different from water and salt which were blessed in simpler rites by a priest, although they are all sacramentals. The exorcised ones, however, are believed to be more efficacious against the attacks of evil spirits.

Says the website “Sacramentals create a connection between the supernatural and natural worlds, and therefore they sanctify man’s life. Because of that, they are a threat for evil spirits and their value in the fight against forces of evil cannot be taken lightly.”

“Sprinkling a possessed person with blessed water is an act of offering them to God. Blessed water protects people, houses, items, lets us come out triumphant of the fight against suggestions, physical and mental suffering, springing from the evil spirit. Therefore, it can also be drunk, sprayed on painful spots on the body and on everyday items. This helps to neutralize signs manifested by the evil spirit on the body, as well as on objects,” the website also says.

I must warn that not all priests are familiar with the rites for exorcised water and salt. More unfortunately, there are priests who are not even aware of such things as exorcised water and salt.

And so I ask the reader to show the following rites to their priests for the blessing of exorcised water and salt:

The priest vests in surplice and purple stole. Any priest can say this blessing.)

P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

R: Who made heaven and earth.

Exorcism and Blessing of Salt

(necessary for Exorcism of Water)

P: O salt, creature of God, I exorcise you by the living (+) God, by the true (+) God, by the holy (+) God, by the God who ordered you to be poured into the water by Elisha the prophet, so that its life-giving powers might be restored. I exorcise you so that you may become a means of salvation for believers, that you may bring health of soul and body to all who make use of you, and that you may put to flight and drive away from the places where you are sprinkled; every apparition, villainy, turn of devilish deceit, and every unclean spirit; adjured by him who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.

R: Amen.

P: Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, we humbly implore you, in your immeasurable kindness and love, to bless (+) this salt which you created and gave to the use of mankind, so that it may become a source of health for the minds and bodies of all who make use of it. May it rid whatever it touches or sprinkles of all uncleanness, and protect it from every assault of evil spirits. Through Christ our Lord.

R: Amen.

Exorcism and Blessing of Water

P: O water, creature of God, I exorcise you in the name of God the Father (+) Almighty, and in the name of Jesus (+) Christ His Son, our Lord, and in the power of the Holy (+) Spirit. I exorcise you so that you may put to flight all the power of the enemy, and be able to root out and supplant that enemy with his apostate angels, through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.

R: Amen.

P: Let us pray. O God, for the salvation of mankind, you built your greatest mysteries on this substance, water. In your kindness, hear our prayers and pour down the power of your blessing (+) into this element, made ready for many kinds of purifications. May this, your creature, become an agent of divine grace in the service of your mysteries, to drive away evil spirits and dispel sickness, so that everything in the homes and other buildings of the faithful that is sprinkled with this water, may be rid of all uncleanness and freed from every harm. Let no breath of infection and no disease-bearing air remain in these places. May the wiles of the lurking enemy prove of no avail. Let whatever might menace the safety and peace of those who live here be put to flight by the sprinkling of this water, so that the health obtained by calling upon your holy name, may be made secure against all attack. Through Christ our Lord.

R: Amen.

(Priest pours exorcised salt into the water, in the form of a cross)

P: May a mixture of salt and water now be made, in the name of the Father, and of the (+) Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

R: Amen.

P: The Lord be with you.R: And with your spirit.

P: Let us pray. O God, Creator unconquerable, invincible King, Victor ever-glorious, you hold in check the forces bent on dominating us. You overcome the cruelty of the raging enemy, and in your power you beat down the wicked foe. Humbly and fearfully do we pray to you, O Lord, and we ask you to look with favor on this salt and water which you created. Shine on it with the light of your kindness. Sanctify it by the dew of your love, so that, through the invocation of your holy name, wherever this water and salt is sprinkled, it may turn aside every attack of the unclean spirit, and dispel the terrors of the poisonous serpent. And wherever we may be, make the Holy Spirit present to us, who now implore your mercy. Through Christ our Lord.

R: Amen.
