If you’re like me, thoughts flit through your head like snowflakes in a blizzard – and then melt before you can ever appreciate or remember them. That’s why I have scratch paper, Post-It Notes, writing pads, notebooks, and journals all over my house (and on my computer as well).
I make a particular effort to jot down events that are, well, odd. A few such things occurred after my mother passed away, and I indeed scribbled them down with the date noted and such. I don’t want to ever forget, as I know they mean something, even if I haven’t figured out what yet.
Dark Pages Press, the imprint of my True Tales books, has come out with a cracking good journal for this very purpose: to make a permanent record of strange and eerie occurrences, thoughts, dreams, etc., that cross our days and nights. Or, as its subtitle suggests, to log “perceptions, ponderings and pursuits.” Contains some cool quotes as well.
Check it out here:

"Checkmate," by Friedrich Moritz August Retzsch (A chess match with Satan)
My book, Diary of An American Exorcist, is out and surprisingly one of the most talked about items is demons texting. This encouraged me to dive more deeply into demonic texts we have received and to look for any insights or patterns that might help us understand their behavior.
We have had three cases in which demons have texted the team and/or the family of the possessed person.* Two of these cases were the most difficult cases we have had so far, and the third involved a pious family with priestly and religious vocations among the children. So, all were "high value" targets with high-ranking, powerful demons involved. This suggests that it takes considerable spiritual "energy" to cross over and manipulate such items in the physical world, and thus this action "costs" them a lot.

This was the Evil One, all right.
As Monsignor Stephen Rossetti watched the man in front of him, he saw his blue eyes turn yellow and the pupils shrink down to mere dots. They looked, Rossetti said, precisely like the eyes of a hissing snake.
But the monsignor knew what it really was: The man’s altered appearance convinced him for a fact that the man was possessed by a demon.
Another time, a man’s entire eyes turned jet black, recalled Rossetti. “This doesn’t usually happen but when it does, it is very startling — it is obviously demonic,” he said.
Battling demonic forces is regular duty for Msgr Rossetti, a Catholic priest who worked in two parishes in the Diocese of Syracuse for five years. Now based in the Washington, DC, diocese, he and his team perform up to 20 exorcisms each week, liberating people — and homes — from what he calls “demons and satanic evil.”

In my latest book When Demons Attack, I have a chapter that discusses the existence of elementals, preternatural beings who are intrinsically connected to our planet’s matter, i.e., earth, air, fire, and water. The tale I relate in the book takes place in the Philippines, so I thought it interesting when I came across another incident of elemental (demonic, in this case) oppression in that same region where superstitions and folklore are very strong, even among the upper class.
The case in question involves a doctor who claimed that benign dwarfs (earth elementals) appeared to her and showered her with good luck and financial rewards in return for her “friendship” and homage. But when she decided to return to the practice of her faith, they revealed themselves to be demons and set about terrorizing her and her family with frightening paranormal activity. They also took temporary possession of her body for hours at a time.
The family requested the help of an exorcist priest, Fr. Jose Syquia, who recalled: “When the time came to bless her with holy water, a voice that wasn’t hers shouted for us to stop. What really scared me was that this was the first time that I saw something very alien in her eyes. I was looking at something else. It was totally evil.” After taunting the priest with personal details of his life that no one else in the room could possibly have known, the demons then declared, “We will never leave her.” Well, after hours of exorcism prayers they eventually did leave and all remains well with the good doctor.
The moral of the story: Beware of creepy little creatures bearing gifts.
My family and I spent a couple of days in Port Townsend, WA, and stayed at the Manresa Castle, a Victorian style historic hotel with a reputation for being haunted. (It was featured on Ghost Adventures in 2015.) We stayed there for the sole reason it was the only hotel with a vacancy. While the remote was not thrown at our heads as some guests reported happening, the bathroom light, which we were going to keep on as a nightlight, did go out inexplicably right as I turned off my Kindle to go to sleep. Thankfully, that's all Casper had in store for us.

I am always surprised when I encounter people who willingly give themselves over to Satan’s service. It is one thing to struggle with temptation and to fall into his grasp through sin. It’s another thing to willingly choose to follow him.
The Father of Lies would like nothing better. At Satan's own defection, he sought to be god and wants people to serve him. Thus he tempted Jesus, "All of these [kingdoms of the world] I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself and worship me" (Mt 4:9).
These past few weeks (see Diary #140), we have directly encountered a Satanic cult.* They have been recruiting followers by threats and coercion. They have been actively cursing and manipulating young women. We have been supporting one who is valiantly resisting. Several Satanists have been arrested, but there are more at large
Msgr. Stephen Rossetti is an exorcist as well as an associate professor at The Catholic University of America. He writes a fascinating blog called the Exorcist Diary from which the following post comes. Oh, by the way, this photo is the real deal.
Sometimes it is difficult to determine if a person is possessed or the problems are psychological only. But other times, it is obvious. [Click to read the rest of the post.]
Video: Eerie 'Doll Altar' Found in England: A woman walking through a wooded area in England stumbled upon a rather unsettling scene in the form of an eerie collection of baby dolls that had been fastened to trees as part of what appeared to be a makeshift altar.
Rosenheim Mansion in Los Angeles, aka Murder House from the first season of American Horror Story, has quite the spooky reputation apart from its spotlight role on the cinematic screen. This article from Toofab.com explains all the devilish details. Happy Halloween.
Take a wild guess which holiday is an exorcist’s least favorite?
Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, chief exorcist for the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., recently wrote on his blog:
“I am starting to prepare spiritually for All Hallows' Eve. No bags of candy. No costumes. No pumpkins. As every year, it'll be ugly.
“Many of our spiritual sensitives will get pummeled by demons. One year, our team decided to pray over one of our most gifted throughout the night, trying to shield her from the demonic attacks she yearly suffered. It didn't work. She got pummeled anyway. But she said she appreciated our efforts.
“Several of our other sensitives will experience increased demonic harassment. Many of our clients who are possessed or severely oppressed will suffer more intensely throughout the night. The priest-exorcists themselves will typically get bombarded with demonic obsessions and an internal battle.”
Msgr. Rossetti goes on to explain that what helps fuel the demons’ power on this particular night are stupid humans (my description, not his.)
Of this species there is, unfortunately, no shortage. There are the zealots – the witches, warlocks, and satanists – who busy themselves on this high holiday of theirs with spells, curses, black masses, and all other sorts of depraved evil behavior. And then there are the dabblers, those who think it might be fun to try out a Ouija board or go ghost hunting, since, after all, it’s Halloween. And last but not least are the unwitting. These are the poor souls who allow their children to dress as devils or other occult figures, go to absurd lengths in decorating with grotesque and horrific imagery, or perhaps themselves wear sleazy, overly-sexualized costumes to parties (the naughty nurse, etc.).
Now, not all exorcists are complete fuddy-duddies about Halloween. Father Vincent Lampert, an exorcist in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, believes it’s still possible to have fun without selling your soul to the devil.
“Ultimately I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the kids putting on a costume, dressing up as a cowboy or Cinderella, and going through the neighborhood and asking for candy; that’s all good clean fun,” Fr. Lampert says.
Even a sheet with some holes cut in it as a ghost is fine, Fr. Lampert says. The danger lies in costumes that deliberately glorify evil and instill fear in people, or when people dabble in magic and witchcraft, even if they think it’s just for entertainment.
London exorcist Fr. Jeremy Davies expands on this thought. “They [those who “celebrate” Halloween] begin by playing games, but it can lead to people disbelieving in the devil and evil spirits.” In his view, this disbelief can be just as bad as believing, and that levity about such matters could be fatal. “Playing with evil under the pretext of it being untrue is to allow evil to enter.” Evil can also enter, he explains, where there exists an unhealthy interest in the occult. Whichever way evil gains entry, Father Davies is clear that any dabbling in the occult “doesn’t have to be deep to be deadly.”
In short, I think the universal adage for 2020 applies particularly well for Halloween this year: Be careful and be safe.
And keep some holy water close by.
