Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Adam Blai, an expert on exorcism out of the Diocese of Pittsburg. Adam has witnessed hundreds of solemn exorcisms, written several fine books on the topic, and helps to train exorcists in his official capacity in his diocese and also all over the world.

In this episode we talk about the nuts and bolts of exorcism, the stages and signs, why God allows demons to possess, oppress, and infiltrate the lives of humans, and what sorts of things we need to pay attention to and be wary of as Catholic Christians a world increasingly interested in the paranormal.

Adam is a great and holy man with amazing insight into the paranormal and the world of spiritual warfare. I hope you enjoy this episode!

For more from Adam check out his books from Sofia Institute Press, especially his newest The History of Exorcism.
