A few weeks ago I was called out of state to help an elderly woman whose family believed her to be possessed. When I arrived, I had a chat with the family and then we made our way to the bedside of the afflicted.
The older woman was sweet as can be, a lovely, grandmotherly type who answered all of my questions in the kindest way. At one moment, she was talking when the family cat hopped up on the bed, wanting to be part of the excitement. The old woman’s eyes glazed over for a moment, and then she reached over – and in a blur she broke that cat’s neck with a sickening crack. Then she just laughed and laughed.
An exorcists job can be difficult sometimes – dealing with the horrible things we see day in and day out may be the hardest part.

Came across this article today:
I recently had a case that was extremely chilling – I was called in about an 18-year old boy who was thought to be possessed by his family and pastor. I headed out to their house to examine the boy and offer my advice and services if needed. On my way there however, something awful happened.
The boy had shattered a large mirror, and swallowed a dozen shards of glass before someone got there to stop him. Luckily, they got him to the hospital in time and he’ll be physically all right very soon. His soul is still in jeopardy however. I’ll be there when he’s ready.

Those afflicted by demons can sometimes lash out violently at animals. If you notice pets or livestock being killed and mutilated in your area, alert law enforcement, and let your pastor know as well.
