What is the devil’s favorite sin?
Is an exorcist afraid? What is the devil’s favorite sin? These and other questions were tackled in a recent interview with the Dominican priest, Father Juan José Gallego, an exorcist from the Archdiocese of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain.
It has been nine years since Fr. Gallego was appointed as exorcist. In an interview conducted by the Spanish daily El Mundo, the priest said that in his experience, pride is the sin the devil likes the most.
“Have you ever been afraid?” the interviewer asked.
“In the beginning I had a lot of fear,” Fr. Gallego replied. “All I had to do was look over my shoulder and I saw demons… the other day I was doing an exorcism, ‘I command you! I order you!’…and the Evil One, with a loud voice fires back at me: ‘Galleeeego, you’re over-doooing it.’ That shook me.”
Nevertheless, he knows that the devil is not more powerful than God. The exorcist recalled that “when they appointed me, a relative told me, ‘Whoa, Juan José, I’m really afraid, because in the movie ‘The Exorcist,’ one person died and the other threw himself through a window. I said to her ‘Don’t forget that the devil is (just a) creature of God.’”
When people are possessed, he added, “they lose consciousness, they speak strange languages, they have inordinate strength, they feel really bad, you see very well-mannered people vomiting and blaspheming.”
“There was a boy whom the demon would set his shirt on fire at night and things like that. He told me what the demons were proposing him to do: If you make a pact with us, you’ll never have to go through any more of what you’re going through now.”
Father Gallego also warned that “New Age” practices like reiki and some yoga can be points of entry for the demons. He also said that addictions are “a type of possession.”
“When people are going through a crisis they suffer more. They can feel hopeless, People feel like they’ve got the devil inside,” he said.
THE GRACE OF GOD JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY REVELATION COME DOWN TO A GOOD SON OF MAN IN LIKED HIM IN VISION OF LOVE WHOM IS OUR LIVING GOD THAT EVEN THE EVIL ONE SATAN LUCIFER THE LIVING LORD OF SATAN FORGIVE AND FORGET EVIL ONE SIN AND BRING LUCIFER WITH US ALL THAT NO ONE LEFT BEHIND WITH US AS ONE FAMILY IN HEAVEN IN HIS KINGDOM AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER FOREVER AMEN WHAT A GREAT AWESOME GRACIOUS MERCIFUL AND EVER LOVING LIVING LORD GOD JESUS CHRIST HE SAID NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN ME ALL IS POSSIBLE
He also said that addictions are “a type of possession.”
Addictions are a type of possession.
The word saint mean unattached person to the things of the world, Santus in Latin right so when some said addiction is a type of possession you must be careful, we have a brain that has functions that the person can’t control cituation of growing up, why because ignorance it self is a sin,Saint Jerome said ignorance of the bibless is ignorance of Christ, each case needs to be study by a profetional well train person not by ignorance alone.
God bless father gallego for his brave duty,the father,the son and the holly spirit be with him at all time.amen
Satan really has no sin that is his favorite, all sins are his favorite,
adultery, homosexuality, pagan practices/rituals, swearing, coveting,
just as long as it gets you out from underneath the umbrella of God’s
safety zone and allows him to push you more and more into a one way
ticket to Hell, Satan is most pleased with himself and eagerly awaits you
to join him in eternal torment forever
There was an evil spirit or two in this one house we lived in. We never were able to get rid of it because itwas attached to my husband. Our marriage has been destroyed and we finally were able to sell it last year. I have not had any more since. I finaly was able to get rid of the deap loneliness last summer.
How did u know it was attached to ur husband? I’m going through the same thing with my husband I think and we can’t sell our home which is only a year old.
I didn’t know at first. But once my nephew was with his friends recording to see if they could here anything. My husband was fine with that but once they were there only 15 min. My husband started to become angry and saying they have to get the f out! I was scared and told them he was becoming really upset. Once they left he was fine. When we first moved into the House everything seemed to be OK. Then my husband was outside cleaning our 4 acres. Something lifted him up and threw him down. I didn’t believe him though and thought he just slipped. He was a drinker. He drank allot more while we lived there. He was starting to have major behavioral changes. I thought he was cheating at one point. Then he started to be abusive to our children. Verbaly more than physical. But it was bad. He let yellow jacket nest in the Attic of our home and was letting the house fall apart ,which was not like him in our other home. He became terrible and we left one night. I and the kids felt so much better. We didn’t move back into the home until my x left. We moved into the home and was worried. But nothing much happened. I think that something was still attached to the property though. I do believe that it was there but with my x being a drinker he became a horrible alcoholic which invites demons. So something else came. Plus we had the house blessed. The man said if you don’t go to Mass and try to change ,to my husband, that he will and everything in the home will get worse. He didn’t listen. So I think everything doubled. It was so creepy. I know when I finally sold the house and that was torcher, but when I finally sold it last March I heard a voice. It spoke into my ear and said it was too late. I was thinking about finding true love someday. This voice I heard it and felt it next to my ear while I was laying in bed. I was not asleep. I had just woke up and was praying and thinking. When I heard that I froze. Said a pray and said out loud, it is never too late except for those against God when they die or God comes back. I felt so much better. I realized I had been depressed. I started to pray against the depression. When we were moving out I became really ill. Iy was cold and I was going in and out. But I know it was an attempt to stop me from moving. But I did anyway and was sick for a week. But nothing bad has happened here in my new home. No bumps in the night sort of speak. I wish I could answer any messages on facebook if you want to friend me. Caroline Ramirez and I have the New York buildings in my wall paper with a plane
My parents and i had a situation with my nephew where we felt he had been messed with by someone using brujeria. We found someone to help him and that night when the person left after helping him i too heard a voice near my ear when i was laying down in bed that said “I’m not through with him yet.”
Please,tell me when you sold your house and are you still with your husband?Is your relationship with your husband better after you sold the house?.Sorry,I am asking the question because I am having a similar situation as you have had.Thanks
You are very brave. I often think about possession.it must be horrible.
May The Almighty GOD KEEP YOU SAFE From all the exorcism the you do. FR. GALLEGO. For like JESUS CHRIST, says that GOD IS FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU. The Almighty GOD OF HEAVEN HAS a callING for each and one of us!!!
I am praying from now on for the Priests which make exorcisms.
May the most precious blood of Jesus of Nazareth Seal, Annoint, Heal , Cover and Protect you Fr.Gallego with Jesus most precious Blood!
just a thought.. is it posible that the devil will change his mind and return to God?
Satan made a choice between who is greater him or god it came down to pride.
There is no repentance in him nor is there truth as scripture says he is the father of lies.
Revelation tells that he will be thrown into the pit of fire so there is no chance at all.
This question can only be answered by God himself…but humanly thinking,I think yes,if he repents then God will take him back and love him because we all know how God loved him…despite who satan is God still miss him and want him back but disowns him for who he is today and his evil ways….
Thank you all Exorcists for doing what you do… I even to this day battle my own sins and believe i fight evil as i do so… even at 16 I know that just as God loves each of us the devil yearns to snatch us down to hell.
How can I get in touch with Fr. Gallego?
Amen Fr. God bless you
