From a reader:
When you discover you have an occult or new age object in your house, do you burn it or do you douse it with Holy Water and throw it away? I know you are busy, but a response would be greatly appreciated.
Then get Father to come to bless the house, going from room to room, with Holy Water.
I suggest always that Father use the older Rituale Romanum with the whole rite of exorcism of water and salt and then the blessing of a home.
It would be good for everyone in the house to make a good confession, because sacraments are more terrifying and painful for demons than sacramentals, which already open up a can of whoop-ass on them.
You can also keep Holy Water in your house and the exorcized bless salt, which you might distribute in rooms and even outside.
“But Father! But Father!”, some of you might be saying, with little quivers of doubt about your modernist, immanentist, fluffy catholic view, “You sound positively medieval! We’ve outgrown all this nonsense! Demons? Blessings? Salt? Give us a break!”
The demonic world is real and it is no joke. You ignore them are your great peril.
The demonic modus operandi concerns itself with attachment to material things. Their activity can be quite localized and entrenched. These material beachheads can then lead to greater spiritual invasion.
Do not underestimate the Enemy, lest, you wind up rotting in Hell with them for eternity.
At the same time, in our Savior, the holy angels, the intercession of the saints, our Blessed Mother, Joseph, Terror of Demons, and the use of sacramentals and, especially, the sacraments of Penance and reception of the Eucharist, we have a magnificent and holy fortress.
