Lio who met Father Gary on the course accompanied him on the journey that transformed him from doubter into believer participating in exorcisms and culminating in Father Gary's own fearsome confrontation with the Devil Woven into his story is the fascinating history. The most unusual feature about this book given its subject matter is that it is absolutely devoid of any of the dramatic excess one usually finds in a book on this topic It could have been subtitled Exorcism 101 because the author traces the progress of an American priest in Rome on his journey to becoming an exorcist Along the way the book examines the history of exorcism the importance of doing a psychiatric examination and how symptoms of various psych disorders may resemble demonic possession the order of angels the history of the devil and demons the pitfalls of being an exorcist The Vatican is working toward having a trained exorcist in every diocese in the world To that end priests come to the Vatican for exorcism classwork and also have an opportunity to work with seasoned exorcists In Italy exorcism is much accepted and possessed persons make a standing appointment to see an exorcist usually for 30 minutes once a week Over time the ritual wears the demon or demons down hopefully leading to an eventual liberation for the suffering person This book raised many serious uestions for me than it answered concerning the nature of evil and its myriad manifestations I once had a client who killed his family He was examined independently by a psychiatrist and a psychologist Both of these mental health professionals were accustomed to diagnosing disorders in people who had committed serious crimes In the case of my client they each came up with an opinion that he had been possessed by an evil force at the time of the murders Needless to say we did not present that theory to the jury Since then though I have been interested in the clinical approach to the idea of demonic possession To share meandering thoughts from down another path My Goodreads friend who is a holocaust librarian recently reviewed an book about genocide in Rwanda and ended his review by saying that the holocaust in Rwanda may portend even worse days for Darfur if nothing is done to stop what is happening there In everything I have read about Rwanda one of the most often used characterizations of the bloody violence there was Hell We know that people will run amok in groups in ways that they would never do as individuals In places like Rwanda and Darfur though it goes beyond mass hysteria or insanity to a much darker place Does Satan have a presence there as wellI in no means am trying to allege any kind of the devil made me do it defense of anyone s actions However i do strongly feel that evil exists as a force in the world I guess it is up to the individual to fight it however they can whether that is through an exorcism of just reminding people that evil exists Demons, Yes--But Thank God for Good Angels participating in exorcisms and culminating in Father Gary's own fearsome confrontation with the Devil Woven into his story is the fascinating history.

Is demonic possession real Father Gary Thomas was a sceptic until he was sent on a Vatican run course for the training of modern day exorcists What he learned there and his subseuent experiences battling evil in contemporary exorcisms changed his mindWriter Matt Bag. This book is SOOOOO Catholic Not a bad thing if you re reading for example something heavy like Pope Benedict s Introduction to Christianity But with The Rite what you re getting is something along the lines of an EWTN production I m somewhat surprised that this book is gathering so many positive reviews since its focus is so narrow pretty much excluding non Catholic Christians and non Christians demonic possession is a phenomena that goes beyond Christianity From the get go the book hammers you with an exorcism that is only relieved when the possessed sees a young Mother Teresa another saint and the Virgin Mary Demon be gone Now there are real cultural reasons for this imagery or manifestation the exorcism occurred in Italy but it s a fair signal as to what s to comeThe tone of the book at least on the surface has a mock journalistic feel to it which kind of pulls you in Matt Baglio the writer is in fact a journalist But he s also a recently re converted Catholic There will be times when you see him being fairly uncritical when you are wanting him to be detached in his observations Still there s some genuinely creepy moments that Baglio recounts The star in the book is meant to be Father Gary an American exorcist in training but it s really Father Carmine who comes across as something of a spiritual rock star After reading this book my appreciation for Anthony Hopkins portrayal in the movie only grew The Rite does have a number of surprises in it which if you re into this sort of thing might make it a worthwhile if frustrating read For one exorcisms are portrayed usually as fairly mundane and in Italy common affairs There are hard cases but generally people seem to line up for an exorcism as if waiting in a dentist s office Another that Satan and Lucifer may not be the same Evil One there s dispute over that Also that women are overwhelmingly the subject of possession There were also some clinkers that I had my doubts over One contention repeated throughout the book was that Satanism is uite active often through secret groups doing terrible things Fans of The Omen take note Oh and Harry Potter is bad a potential doorway to Captain HowdyAs a study of the problem of Evil and an Adversary The Rite is not despite a few historical tidbits serious reading It jumps around too much and the sourcing is very uneven One glaring example is on page 127 of the paperback edition There Baglio writes about a priest being seriously wounded with a bed spring ripped free by a possessed person There s no source recorded which is odd since this incident is reported to have happened in the original Exorcist case in Mount Airy Maryland That controversial case is now permanently shrouded in legend It s virtually impossible to get to the real facts and I think Baglio knowing this fudged a bit and kept it vague Overall The Rites is a weird read and I thought about giving it an extra star for possible cult read bonus points but in the end the book was too much of a slog to earn it

    Demonic possession is the most stigmatized and stereotyped of all border phenomena And I say border as I refer to the line between what we consider normal and experiences we can't explain Perhaps the movies are to blame for our idea of what an exorcism consists of a little girl screams when splashed with holy water or a deep evil voice manifests Neuroscience and psychology associate demonic possession with a call for at

    A solid work and reasonable presentation of actual information regarding a Christian perspective on Satan demons and exorcism from the Roman Catholic angleThere is so much trash written and practiced concerning this subject; it is extremely difficult to find real information presented in a rational theologically sound manner I read this book in its entirety as an open minded skeptic fully expecting to be dis

    I honestly can't make heads or tails of this book Yes it was an incredibly interesting read but a lot of it was very hard to swallow even for someone like me who unreservedly believes in the existence of demonic spirits I have no idea how much of the book was factual and how much was blatant exaggeration Baglio's no frills

    The Rite The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt Baglio is a fascinating thorough and thought provoking look at exorcism through the perspective of a Catholic priest Father Gary reluctantly sent to the Vatican to learn how to become an exorcist He goes to actual classes and witnesses exorcisms performed by a grizzled Italian priest Father Carmine When a demon 'possesses' a person he is merely acting on that pe
