The famous blogger, Father John Zuhlsdorf, 61, has been carrying out daily live-streamed exorcisms against “fraud” and “lying” during the vote-counting process in the United States.
He did so because for him “there’s enough evidence to demonstrate that there was fraud in some places." For him, the fraud "didn’t happen by itself" and it was "well-organised.”
However, Pro-Francis’ journalist Christopher Lamb (TheTablet.co.uk, January 8) went after Zuhlsdorf, and even involved Madison Bishop Donald Hying, Zuhlsdorf's superior, who swiftly disassociated himself from his priest by saying that "a number of people have falsely concluded that I, as the Bishop of Madison, gave Father John Zuhlsdorf permission to perform the rite of the sacramental of exorcism in relation to partisan political activity, to those seeking or holding elected office, or to recent developments in electoral politics in our country,”
Hying only admitted that he gave Father Zuhlsdorf a temporary permission to carry out exorcisms “for the intention of alleviation from the scourge of the coronavirus pandemic.”
Zuhlsdorf who is an American, was ordained for Velletri-Segni Diocese, Italy, in 1991. He lives and works in Madison Diocese with the approval of the bishop of Madison.
In a mean 2019 letter, Velletri-Segni Bishop Apicella disassociated himself from Zuhlsdorf and his blog, "Somebody who combines arguments of faith and morals with photos of birds, Chinese food and aircraft seats, as well as boasting about a firearms license, speaks for itself and I do not see what theological or scientific credibility he can have.”
Lamb does not conceal his intentions when he says, “It is unclear what sanction, if any, Father Zuhlsdorf will face from his bishop in Madison.”
There certainly appears that fraud was committed. Lawyers need to be able to have forensic experts scan the ballots to determine if they are legitimate, and have not been able to obtain the necessary court order to be able to do so. This is a great shame on America, and a blow against democracy in general which leaves us with some horrible options. I don't know if an exorcism is the appropriate …More
There certainly appears that fraud was committed. Lawyers need to be able to have forensic experts scan the ballots to determine if they are legitimate, and have not been able to obtain the necessary court order to be able to do so. This is a great shame on America, and a blow against democracy in general which leaves us with some horrible options. I don't know if an exorcism is the appropriate spiritual response, as it is humans carrying out this crime against the public, but I thank Father Z for doing what is within his power to help us.
Hate to say it, bu it appears Fr. Zuhlsdorf has just demonstrated that some exorcisms do end in failure with the devil laughing at the attempt.
That ain't the way (successful) exorcisms work @petrus100452 They are very clear battles. If you haven't already, or if you need a refresher, take a read through Malachi Martin's "Hostage To The Devil". You'll be delighted to know the book is available, in its entirety, through archive-org and in multple reading formats..
