Priests, lay, can pray this until the election is officially resolved: a binding prayer again evil

There is a massive spiritual war going on over the “soul of our nation”. This is why I have been saying the Exorcism (Title XI, Ch. 3). Lay people should NEVER pray that.

Fr. Chad Ripperger makes this suggestion.  If priests don’t have the faculty of the bishop to use Title XI, Ch. 3 publicly, they can still use this!  Can and SHOULD.

    Thank you for posting!
    I will add this to my prayers for the election!

    An excellent suggestion Fr. Z and Fr. Ripperger.

    In A.D. 2020 malice is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The prayer above can be used against certain loudmouth females who seem to think they are the second coming of Rosa Luxemburg. Jennifer Rubin, Margaret Spangenberg, Maxine Waters, AOC, Mika Brzezinski, Stephanie Wilkinson, Hillary Clinton, Emily Abrams (“We’re launching the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.”), et al.

    These malicious females appear to be yearning for the present situation to go kinetic. Unwise. They are invited to repent and enter a convent. Christus Vincit.

    This prayer can be used against two former CIA officers and Tough Guys:

    It appears that there has been some confusion surrounding the private use of this prayer by the laity. I have been saying the St Michael Prayer by Pope Leo XIII since the scamdemic started and with the unrest here in K-town.

    Here is the full explanation from the SSPX of why the laity can and should recite this powerful prayer privately (not to be confused with publicly):

    “When can the Prayer to St. Michael against the devil and the bad angels be recited?

    “This powerful prayer, written by Pope Leo XIII in 1888, was incorporated into the Roman Ritual in 1925 (Tit. XI, Cap. 3) with the rubric that it can be recited by bishops or by priests who have received the authority to do so from their Ordinaries. However, this rubric concerns the public prayers of the Church that are contained in the Roman Ritual. The same restriction does not apply to the private recitation of this prayer by any individual priest, or any of the faithful for that matter, as many bishops permitted and encouraged before Vatican II.

    “The Church’s traditional teaching concerning the recitation of private exorcism prayers is contained in the Moral Theology manual of Dominicus Prümmer (Vol. II, §463):

    “It is not only clerics who can pronounce an exorcism in a private and secret manner, enjoying a special power over the devils in virtue of the order of the exorcistate, but also the laity themselves. It is in no way forbidden to the laity nor does any inconvenient arise from it. Thus we read in history how several lay persons, such as St. Catherine of Siena and St. Anthony of the Desert, cast out devils.

    “Consequently, it is in no way inappropriate for the laity to recite the exorcism prayer of Pope Leo XIII, provided that they do so privately. It will certainly be very powerful in overcoming the temptations and evil snares of the devil.

    “One wonders why it is that post-Vatican II authors have scruples concerning the recitation of this magnificent prayer, stating that since the 1983 Code of Canon Law it is no longer permitted. In fact, the same rule of the necessity of permission for public exorcisms is retained (Canon 1172). There is, however, no determination concerning the private recitation of an exorcism prayer, which is consequently perfectly permissible. Of course, we all know why it is that the modern church has changed the rites of exorcism, done away with the traditional powerful prayers, and discouraged all such commands in the name of Christ against the power of evil: it is that the devil is henceforth treated more as a mythical figure than as a reality that we must deal with every day, as St. Peter teaches: “Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour” (I Pet. 5:8).

    “The gravity of sin, the danger of eternal damnation and the personal power of evil that the devil is able to exercise in this corrupt world, the corruption of the Church, and its infiltration by its enemies, even to the papacy, are so many realities pushed aside by the modernists, but of which we are reminded in this prayer:

    “On men depraved in mind and corrupt in heart the wicked dragon pours out like a most foul river the poison of his villainy, a spirit of lying, impiety and blasphemy; and the deadly breath of lust and of all iniquities and vices. Her most crafty enemies have engulfed the Church, the Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, with sorrows, they have drenched her with wormwood; on all Her desirable things they have laid their wicked hands. Where the See of Blessed Peter and the Chair of Truth have been set up for the light of the Gentiles, there they have placed the throne of the abomination of their wickedness, so that, the Pastor having been struck, they may also be able to scatter the flock. Therefore, O thou unconquerable Leader, be present with the people of God against the spiritual wickednesses which are bursting in upon them: and bring them the victory.

    “Is it any wonder that the modernists consider this prayer “dangerous” for the soul? In fact, to the contrary, it is the refusal to pray in this way that is dangerous for the soul.”

  6. VARoman says:


    Thank you for the expanded historical explanation!

  7. Semper Gumby says:

    VARoman has begun to take an interest in “expanded historical explanations.” This is good.

  8. NOCatholic says:

    Semper Gumby: “This prayer can be used against two former CIA officers and Tough Guys:…”

    Why would a prayer against demonic activity, be “used against” two human individuals? Perhaps you meant to pray for their protection specifically?

    BTW, it looks like the networks in the US have called Pennsylvania, and thus the election, for Joe Biden.

  9. Semper Gumby says:

    NOCatholic: I meant precisely what I wrote.

    “The networks” are not the arbiters, they have their political agendas. Recall, the Party of Death organ NY Times retracted their Nov. 3 statement: “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media.”

  10. NOCatholic says:

    Semper Gumby: “NOCatholic: I meant precisely what I wrote.”

    Then may I suggest, as you suggested to VARoman in another thread, that you examine your conscience.

    The network projections are of course not official and anyone is free to accept or reject them while waiting for the states to certify those results (preferably without spreading dangerous rumors that delegitimize those results). I mentioned them for information only. But one of those pro-Biden projections is from Fox News, the network most favorable to Donald Trump.


  11. Semper Gumby says:

    NOCatholic: “Then may I suggest, as you suggested to VARoman in another thread, that you examine your conscience.”

    No you may not. There is more going on than you are aware of. Again, I meant precisely what I wrote.

    As for your attempted “dangerous rumors” swipe, the Party of Death and numerous media outlets “deligitimized” themselves.

  12. NOCatholic says:

    Semper Gumby: “There is more going on than you are aware of. Again, I meant precisely what I wrote.”

    I get that one of those former CIA operatives wrote publicly criticizing President Trump. Perhaps the other did as well. No matter.

    The proper prayer for an errant human (if he is errant) is repentance and conversion, or possibly deliverance from demonic oppression. Neither of those is what you advocate. You want to, in prayer, treat a human whose salivation is still possible, the same as a demon who is destined for “eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (See Matthew 25).

    Sorry, I stand by my suggestion. In addition, perhaps you should consult with a trusted confessor.

  13. Semper Gumby says:

    NOCatholic: At Ease. Once again, I mean precisely what I wrote.

  14. WVC says:

    @NOCatholic – you think Fox News is actually on Trump’s side? That sure explains a lot.

  15. Fr. Kelly says:

    Enough of this virtue signaling NOCatholic.

    Is defeating President Trump so important to you that you don’t care that it is being done by dismantling our whole electoral system and putting in place the most rabidly anti-life government we have ever seen?

    Every child that is killed in its mother’s womb because Biden became president in this way is on your conscience. As is every “same sex” marriage that happens because of this seizure of power.

    These are things that they promised to support and you didn’t act to stop it when you could.

    It remains to be seen whether there will ever be another chance to stop these evils in our land.

  16. JonPatrick says:

    Not sure that Fox News having called the election for Biden is very significant. Fox is not what it was 20 years ago. Except for a few commentators such as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson they are basically mainstream media. They keep the few conservatives on board to keep their conservative audience who have few if any alternatives among the cable networks.

  17. WVC says:

    Fox News is a business. And it’s owned by Murdoch, who knows a thing or two about making money. It was never actually about championing the “conservative cause” – it was just a market-based realization that there was an opportunity to provide a lucrative counterpoint to the other news organizations. Murdoch himself has come out against Trump recently, and they staffed the election calling desk with a dyed in the wool, Biden-supporting Democrat. Chris Wallace was also embarrassingly anti-Trump in his role as debate “moderator.”

    And now, with numerous legitimate legal issues pending, over 100 people willing to give testimony on fraud via sworn affidavit, video footage of mysterious 4 a.m. ballot dumps at multiple polling stations (after counting had “ceased” for the night and in some cases after the legal deadline by which ballots could be received), verified software “glitches” that dramatically impacted the vote in swing states, the Supreme Court already weighing in regarding ballot deliveries in Pennsylvania, and statistical anomalies that make it evident a recount is warranted (this from non-partisan mathematicians, even) – with all of that Fox News is front and center with the other Mainstream Media Outlets proclaiming Biden as the de facto President-elect. It’s psy-op 101. It’s almost as if the Media is getting revenge for the “Dewey Defeats Truman” moment. They darn well are going to pick the President for us, regardless of what those pesky votes may or may not say.

    It’s part of the Color Revolution playbook (the author of the actual book, it should be noted, has been publicly collaborating with Democrat operatives for months). Delegitimize the election process to justify a big increase in violent rioting. Want to see how this plan unfolds? Just go back and look at the Ukraine’s recent history (speaking of which, anyone know where Victoria Nuland is now-a-days?)

    This is one of the reasons I haven’t had cable for over a decade (I guess getting close to two decades, now). It’s America’s number one source for propaganda, lies, and the normalization of every imaginable kind of sin. I wish more priests gave sermons about how Catholics should get rid of cable!

  18. kenoshacath says:

    The laity’s private use of the Exorcism (Title XI, Ch. 3) prayers should be widely encouraged, especially now.

    [NO!  Laity should NEVER use that prayer.  I know that it is in the Angelus Press Daily Missal with an introductory paragraph, but exorcists tell me that the changes to permissions over the years have been stricter and stricter.  It should be prayed only by PRIESTS privately and publicly with permission of the bishop.  DON’T!]

  19. Semper Gumby says:

    WVC: “Mainstream Media Outlets proclaiming Biden as the de facto President-elect. It’s psy-op 101.”

    Yes, de-moralize American citizens to lower awareness and resistance.

    Gov. Kristi Noem:

    “If Joe Biden really wants to unify this country, he should wait until we can ensure that we had a fair election.”

  20. Semper Gumby says:

    WVC: Here’s Wikipedia, for what it’s worth, on the title “President-elect”:

    “If the result of an election is unclear or disputed,[1] no person is normally referred to as president-elect until the dispute is resolved.”

    [1] is: “Explainer: What happens if the U.S. election is contested?” by Reuters.

    The “Explainer” opens with disinformation:

    “President Donald Trump has claimed without evidence that unprecedented numbers of mail-in ballots will lead to widespread fraud by Democrats in the November presidential election. The president has also repeatedly refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if the vote count indicates he has lost to Democratic challenger Joe Biden.”

    It ends with this:

    “Any election dispute in Congress would play out ahead of a strict deadline – Jan. 20, when the Constitution mandates that the term of the current president ends.”

    “Under the Presidential Succession Act, if Congress still has not declared a presidential or vice presidential winner by then, the Speaker of the House would serve as acting president. Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, is the current speaker.”

  21. Semper Gumby says:

    Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election – Sept. 12, 2018

    H.R.1 – For the People Act of 2019

    This bill addresses voter access, election integrity, election security, political spending, and ethics for the three branches of government.

    Specifically, the bill expands voter registration and voting access and limits removing voters from voter rolls.

  22. Semper Gumby says:

    WVC: An item regarding Fox News and the Murdochs:

    “Kathryn, 47, had also voiced her agreement that her family, which owns Fox News, must ‘put their country above their profits’ and disavow President Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud.”

    “Her husband James stepped down from the board of Fox News parent News Corp in July, citing disagreements with some of the company’s editorial content.”

    Kathryn Murdoch:

    “Kathryn Murdoch is co-founder and president of Quadrivium, which supports practical, evidence-based solutions for critical societal problems.”

    “She served as Director of Strategy and Communications for the Clinton Climate Initiative from 2006 until 2011. From 2011 to 2012 she was a Visiting Fellow at Oxford University, where as Director of ReSource 2012, she convened scientists, academics, investment professionals and entrepreneurs to promote the judicious use of natural resources.”

    “Through the Quadrivium Foundation, which she founded with her husband James Murdoch, she aims to apply these successful approaches to a wider range of societal challenges.”
