Archbishop Erio Castellucci has a response to those who think the devil is not real: “they’re mistaken.”
“All you have to do is witness an exorcism to understand that evil is a specific entity, as well as a reality,” he told the Italian daily Il Resto del Carlino.
The Archbishop of Modena-Nonantola had seen possessed persons throughout his life, but he had never witnessed an exorcism. Then one of the two priest exorcists in his archdiocese called him. The priest had a “difficult case.”The exorcist visited the archbishop and invited him to witness the rite.
“‘Come,’ he said to me, ‘because this man has been possessed for a long time, he comes to me once a week and your presence, as a bishop, may have an influence’,” the archbishop recounted.
Archbishop Castellucci said he understood the urgency of the case when he saw how the possessed person reacted to the exorcism.
On July 3, 2015, Archbishop Castellucci went to a parish church in Modena where exorcisms are performed. The exorcist and the possessed person, a middle aged man, were there. He had barely entered when the demon-possessed man started to shout, “Get out, get out of here, you will have a bad death.”
The man then fell into a trance.
“Then it seemed as if he had woken up and in an instant drove his fingernails into the back of my hands,” Archbishop Castellucci continued. “He had a diabolical look on his face and he uttered unrepeatable insults and curses.”The possessed man “told me I would die in a traffic accident and while he was saying it he looked pleased.”
Archbishop Castellucci reflected on the claim, saying “My life is in the hands of the Lord Jesus and certainly not in that demon’s. I wasn’t worried at all. The word of God teaches that the curses are ineffective.”
After this experience, the archbishop said that he does not rule out the possibility of participating in other exorcisms. The Italian exorcists themselves lament that they are few in number.
Archbishop Castellucci said discernment was important regarding alleged cases of possession
He also stressed the importance of prayers of deliverance to help disturbed persons heal.

1. Christmas Tree - The sacred tree of the winter-god; Druids believed the spirit of their gods resided in the three. Most ancient pagans knew the tree represented Nimrod reincarnated into Tammuz! Pagans also looked upon the tree as a phallic symbol.
2. Star - Pentalpha, the five-pointed star. The pentalpha is a powerful symbol of Satan, second only to the hexagram. The star is the sacred symbol of Nimrod, and has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity.
3. Candles - Candles represent the sun-gods’ newly-born fie. Pagans the world over love and use candles in their rituals and ceremonies. Certain colors are also thought to represent specific powers. The extensive use of candles is usually a very good indication that the service is pagan, no matter what the outward trappings might be.
4. Mistletoe - Mistletoe is the sacred plant of the Druids, symbolizing pagan blessings of fertility; thus, kissing under the mistletoe is the first step in the reproductive cycle! Witches also use the white berries in potions.
5. Wreath - Wreaths are circular, and so they represent the female sexual organs. Wreaths are associated with fertility and the “circle of life”.
6. Santa Claus - Former Satanists have told me that “Santa” is an anagram for “Satan”. In the New Age, the god, “Sanat Kamura”, is most definitely an anagram “Satan”. The mythical attributes and powers ascribed to Santa are eerily close to those possessed by Jesus Christ.
7. Reindeer - Reindeer are horned animals representing the “horned-god” or the “stag-god” of pagan religion! Santa’s traditional number of reindeer in his team is eight (8); in Satanic gematria, eight is the number of “new beginnings”, or the cycle of reincarnation. The Illuminati views the number “eight” as a symbol of their New World Order.
8. Elves - Elves are imp-like creatures who are Santa’s (Satan’s) little helpers. They are also demons.
9. Green & Red - Green and Red are the traditional colors of the season, as they are the traditional pagan colors of winter. Green is Satan’s favorite color, so it is appropriate it should be one of the traditional colors for Christmas; red is the color of human blood, Satan’s highest form of sacrifice - for this reason, Communism adopted red as its main color!
10. Winter Solstice - December 25th is known as the “nativity” of the sun. This date is the birthday of Tammuz, the son, the reincarnation of the sun god. Traditionally, December 21 is known as Yule. The Roman Catholic Church moved the celebration of Yule to December 25.
11. Saturnalia - December 25th is also known to the Romans as “Saturnalia”, a time of deliberate debauchery. Drinking through repeated toasting - known as ‘wassail’ - was a key to the debauchery of this celebration. Fornication was symbolized by the mistletoe, and the entire event was finished with a Great Feast, the Christmas Dinner.
12. Christ Mass - Even the name, “Christmas” is pagan! “Christi” meant “Christ”, while “Mas” meant Mass. Since all pagan Masses are commemorating “death”, the name, “Christmas” literally means “death of Christ”. A deeper meaning lies in the mention of “Christ” without specifying Jesus. Thus, Antichrist is in view here; the pagans celebrate “Christmas” as a celebration of their coming Antichrist, who will deal a death blow to the Jesus Christ of Christianity.
13. Pilgrims - Early Christian Pilgrims refused to celebrate this holiday because of its pagan roots.
The celebration of Christmas reached its peak—some would say its worst moments—in the medieval period when it became a time for conspicuous consumption and unequaled revelry.”
Consider these quotes from the Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911 edition, under “Christmas”: “Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church…The first evidence of the feast is from Egypt.”
Further, “Pagan customs centring round the January calends gravitated to Christmas.” Under “Natal Day,” Origen, an early Catholic writer, admitted, “…In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his birthday. It is only sinners (like Pharaoh and Herod) who make great rejoicings over the day on which they were born into this world” (emphasis mine).
The Encyclopedia Americana, 1956 edition, adds, “Christmas…was not observed in the first centuries of the Christian church, since the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth…a feast was established in memory of this event [Christ’s birth] in the 4th century.
In the 5th century the Western church ordered the feast to be celebrated on the day of the Mithraic rites of the birth of the sun and at the close of the Saturnalia, as no certain knowledge of the day of Christ’s birth existed.”There is no mistaking the origin of the modern Christmas celebration. Many additional sources could be cited and we will return to this later. Let’s begin to tie some other facts together.
It was 363years after Christ before the Roman church kept Christmas, and not until the fifth century that it was mandated to be kept throughout the empire as an official festival honoring “Christ.”

We live forever, and once we realize that, we see that there is never need for despair, depression, or morbidity.
Those who have traipsed for the other side emphasize how, from the perspective there, that no disease or trauma or heartbreak, no tragedy on earth, seems like a “big deal.”
Such is the perspective “over there.”
The earth is a passing place, and a big mistake it is when we embrace it as our complete or even predominant reality.
The most immediate obstacle for an easy transition: worldliness, according to one young woman who allegedly had such an experience in February of 2010 when she had a seizure and collapsed at a party.
Suddenly she had found herself watching a lot of people in a circle staring at something, with police caution tape around, and when she went to see what they were looking at, she saw that it was her own body.
All of a sudden a huge white light appeared, coming from the ceiling to the floor. “I just knew, okay, that’s home,” she relates on a video [below]. “That’s where I’m supposed to go. So I went into the light and it felt so good, it’s hard to explain. The higher I went into the light, and the more I moved up and further than earth, the better I felt.
The feeling of pleasure does not really apply to this earth. Nothing can compare. If you took everything you are in favor of maybe getting a massage, getting into a hot tub, your favorite music, your favorite food, your favorite drink, [if] everything that you love happened to you all at once it would not even closely compare to the pleasure that was in that light. As you moved up, it felt better and better.”
As always, we are vigilant because deception can come as an “angel of light.” Deception? Drugs?
So many of these experiences are astoundingly consistent and bear good fruit (conversion) that we discern them. When we do we see how fading indeed — how insignificant — are the pleasures of life. (Indeed, fasting can bring more pleasure than a fantastic meal.)
Earth turned dark for this particular woman — black — and our “universe” seemed “the size of an ant. In Heaven, the leader of a nation is of no more note than the janitor at church or the clerk at a convenience store (and perhaps of less note).
“It made you realize how insignificant life is and how we are only here for such a short time,” she witnesses. “There’s an eternal life we have to live, and not too many people know that or believe that. There is a place we go.”
She saw her whole life all at once in a flash. “I honestly looked at my life and felt like a complete failure. I felt like I’d lived one big selfish life, which was only directed to myself. I never helped anyone on this planet. I never gave anything to a significant degree. I guess I was — now I know the terminology — ‘worldly.’
“My life seemed so big on earth, my friends, my clothes. When you look at it from up there, it looks so insignificant. There was an overwhelming feeling of love.”
We contrive importance based on a very limited vision. “There is no perfection here,” she notes. But there is on the other side (though there is also “a place of all evil”).
She wasn’t ready for the afterlife, however — it turns out — and when a Voice spoke to her, it said, “If you want to live, show it.” She was suddenly back in her body.
