The Battle Against Evil

From Aleteia:
The battle against evil begins in the family, says Fr. Gabriele Amorth, who as one of the foremost exorcists in Italy, knows well the inner workings of evil. Today, the reason why many individuals become evil is often because so many young people “live without knowing the sacredness of being children” and therefore do not know what it means to be a good father or mother.

According to Amorth, young couples often enter into marriage intending to become “one flesh” and “one spirit,” but end in separation “because they are torn apart by various attractions; they reunite and separate again, in couples, families, homes, in different countries and with different children.”

“This breakdown [in the family] leads to delinquency, wickedness, and evil,” he says.

Fr. Amorth was ordained a priest in 1954 for the Society of St. Paul. In 1986 he was appointed as an exorcist of the diocese of Rome. (Read more.)
