Who Is Verdi Garandieu?
French clergy during the 17th and 18th centuries
(Additional info the end of the exorcism) —Since 1975, shortly after that possession was established by a famous exorcist (Father Ernest Fischer), in addition to a number of human and angelic demons (damned and demons), VERDI GARANDIEU was also forced to manifest himself. He would have exercised his priestly ministry in the seventeenth century in a village in the Pyrenees of the diocese of Tarbes. What we know of his life is known to us by the revelations that he had to make during an exorcism, April 5, 1978.A few days before, the possessed was plagued by increasing inner anxieties, so that it became urgent to bring relief with an exorcism to this reparative soul suffering for almost three decades. She was chosen on April 5 because in that year (1978) the Church celebrated the Annunciation on that date since March 25 was on Holy Saturday.Experience has shown that the feasts of the Blessed Virgin are particularly auspicious days in the fight against the assaults of the demons and torments. That day, the priest devil had to confess in his despair that the abandonment of the Breviary caused him to lose the strength to fight against the temptations of the flesh and that, not being able get out of sin, he had let himself go completely.Living in a state of habitual mortal sin, he fulfilled his religious duties only superficially; he neglected his catechisms, his preaching conformed to his relaxed life, and he persisted in the state of lukewarmness up to his death.But then, in his own words, God "Cast him out of His mouth" (Rev 3:16), and throughout eternity he suffers special torments as a priest, because priestly Ordination imprints on the soul an indelible character that can never be erased.
EXTRACTS OF EXORCISM August 7, 1979
Exorcist: In the name of the Mother of the Church, in the name of all the Popes and especially the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI, and all the priest exorcists, speak the truth and only the truth, as to what the Mother of God wants to tell us today through you, Verdi Garandieu!
Garandieu: (labored breathing) Well! is the will of the Highest and of the Trinity that this booklet of Verdi be published. Now it is already published in German. But as we said, it must be translated also into the other languages in which the first book "WARNINGS" comes out or it was published, without delay ... VERDI IS IMPORTANT; IT SEEMS TO BE AN INSIGNIFICANT BOOKLET, RATHER HEAVY, HOWEVER IT CONTAIN MUCH AND IS VERY MUCH WANTED BY HEAVEN! On it is the blessing of Heaven, be it on the booklet be it on the publisher, as well as ON all the contributors to this work, including the printing. That's it! You could now receive criticisms in this regard, you could be criticized even to blood and to be completely torn and trampled on. BUT THIS BOOK HAS AN UNBEATABLE VALUE! IT WILL SAVE MANY SOULS, even if you would not see it. It is also very useful for souls who do not convert immediately, because Verdi, or rather his statements, penetrate the soul. They enter there, even if the reader does not want it, or would not want to realize it. They disturb. They penetrate deeply and in a certain sense torment, even when the person does everything to defend himself, assuming he does not throw it in the first trash can before reading it. But the presentation is such that even those who at first would not have anything to do with it, end up all the same sticking their nose into it, at the appropriate time ...
Exorcist: In the name of all the bishops and priests!
Garandieu: You must say: and of the Church! Because it is first for the Church and for the priests. SHE (pointing upwards) obligates us today to say, since she incites us to do so, that there is still something to be said, that here there is the power of the bishop, even if you might not see with your own eyes any fruit and if you gathered only negative things, it has all the same for Heaven an incredible value, an incomparable wealth, more than you can predict and suppose. THEY (points upwards) have a desired and planned time that this VERDI might be able to dwell in the possessed for several years, because it was always in their plan that it might be published this booklet. Certainly, it is also published in the book "WARNINGS" (French edition), but this book apart is a good edition because it costs less, it reads fluently and you have to read less pages. And yet it has all of its merits when you read it. It's stupid but ... Ah! I do not want to say it!
Exorcist: Continue to speak! What is stupid? Continue to speak in the name of the Highest, Mother of the Church! ...
Garandieu: It's stupid but it was not published ten or twenty years ago. At that time a similar booklet would have inflamed more than today. But even today it must have the mission to produce its fruits in hearts, to transform them and to shake them. For this ... I do not want to speak!
Exorcist: Continue to tell the truth, in the name of the Church, the Mother of the Church!
Garandieu: Because of this it must be published precisely in the same languages as the other book "WARNINGS" that you publish now or has already been published.
Exorcist: Continue to speak in the name of the Highest!
Garandieu: It would be better with the Imprimatur, but you did not obtained it.
Exorcist: Say the truth and nothing but the truth! Does the Mother of God want that it might be said clearly to the bishop where he goes, where the priests go who now say that we have defamed with this booklet, and we have in fact rendered such a disservice to the Church, that it might be said to him that they fight against us? Must we tell the truth, tell them where they go? Do I have to write to every bishop to tell them of this destruction in the Church today?
Garandieu: You would have done well to write this sentence: "All those who are of the light and of the Holy Spirit will recognize the truth."
Exorcist: It will be inserted in the next reprint. We still left unfinished many things that maybe are not good. But we thank the Mother of God for this indication. Say the truth and only the truth! Does the Mother of God still want to tell us more on this topic?
Garandieu: It is terrible to see that even your bishops have taken such bad ways. THEY (points upwards) are saddened and distressed to see that your bishops successively do, we say, back off, more and more, and they do not have the courage (cries out), they do not have a drop of courage, they no longer have the truth, absolutely nothing.
Exorcist: Is it the will of God, say the truth and only the truth, that the bishops might be warned still another time, very strongly? It is the will of the Mother of God?
Garandieu: In spite of this it is better that you send the whole booklet to each one and that you warn them again, in the name of Christ and of the Cross, to make an about face. Tell them that we are in a very grave danger and that soon they will see what is going on...
Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Confessions of a Priest Damned to Hell
A damned priest (Verdi Garandieu) warns about hell
By order of the Blessed Virgin during the exorcism done on the day of the Annunciation
Many priests performed an exorcism on the Swiss possessed continually tormented by demons. The testimonies of twelve priests, including three doctors in theology and canon law, expressed the conviction that the demons, at the time of exorcisms, are forced to warn humanity in the name of the Mother of God.
Those who deny the existence of the devil and the possibility of possession, put themselves in contradiction with the formal doctrine of the Church and dispute irrefutable facts.
EXORCISM OF April 5, 1978
Confessions of the Damned Priest Verdi Garandieu
Exorcist: Father Ernest Fischer, retired missionary, Gossau (Saint-Gall, Switzerland)
Demon: Verdi-Garandieu, a human demon
Message To Priests - Exhortations To Return To The Life Of The Gospel
THE ABBOT VERDI-GARANDIEU, A HUMAN DEMON, priest of the diocese of Tarbes, France in the seventeenth century, addresses this pathetic message, through the possessed woman, to his brothers in the Priesthood, to beseech them - by order of the Most Holy Trinity and the Virgin Mary - to go back onto the narrow road of the Gospel, and so prevent themselves in their turn, from suffering in eternal Hell the horrible fate which befell him because of his infidelities to grace. At the end of the exorcism of Leo XIII used, in this instance, by Fr. Fischer, numerous invocations were pronounced, including that of Saint Vincent Ferrier, the great Spanish Dominican missionary of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries; he traveled throughout Spain, Italy, Switzerland and France, where he died at Vannes in 1419. He was a formidable opponent of the devil, from whom he wrestled many souls, through his life of love and penance and his stirring sermons. In short: Saint Vincent Ferrier, a model to imitate; Abbot Verdi-Garandieu, an example not to follow.
The demon is going to speak for nearly two and a half hours on end. We reproduce here the text of his adjurations, by order of Heaven, to the priests of our time.
Exorcist: You must speak for the glory of God and for the salvation of souls, St. Vincent Ferrier orders you, this great hunter of souls, who ripped away from you many souls!
Garandieu: Not from me, not from me but from the Old One (= Lucifer) (mocking laughter), not from me, not ...
Exorcist: He tore them away from hell. He ripped the souls from hell with his zeal.
Garandieu: I am just one among many (laughter); I am a wretch among many. What foolishness (loudly), what a stupid thing I did! I led a life as fast as lightning! (Then while uttering woeful cries, he exclaims, making the possessed woman jump to her feet): Why did I let myself go that way, why? Why was I not a priest according to the will of God, HIM UP THERE (pointing upward)? Why did I not correspond with His grace? Why (crying with a loud voice) did I embraced the Priesthood, this very heavy responsibility, since I was not equal to it if I was not prepared to take the trouble to lift myself up to the heights of this great ideal? (crying ...)?
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, in the name of Jesus Christ, all for the glory of God alone!
Garandieu: I sinned by giving bad example. I gave bad example as even today, thousands, tens of thousands of priests give a bad example. I did not (labored breathing) give a good religious education.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Damned for his lukewarmness.
Garandieu: I spent my time looking at the women's dresses, rather than in observing the commandments of God. I was condemned because I was too lukewarm. THE ONE UP THERE (indicating upward) literally said to me, "I will vomit you out of my mouth because you are neither cold nor hot" (Rev 3:16).
Exorcist: Speak, Verdi Garandieu, for the glory of God, about what you must say about your life!
(While he was speaking, we heard his cries through the possessed woman.)
Garandieu: My life was ... In my youth I was still good (almost crying). I (crying bitterly) still corresponded with grace at that time (tears of desperation). In my youth I still corresponded to grace, but then I became lukewarm. I went forward more and more along the wide way (Mt 7:13-14). I abandoned the path of virtue, and I no longer corresponded with grace. And so I fell lower and lower. Perhaps, in the beginning, I again confessed. I still wanted to change myself, more than once I wanted to go back and fight my defects (with a loud voice), but ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth in the name of Jesus Christ for the glory of God, only the truth!
Garandieu: … but I did not succeed any longer, because I prayed too little… I prayed very little and to little did I correspond with grace. I was, as you say, lukewarm. Lukewarm is already cold; between this tepidity and coldness, there is only the distance of an onionskin. One should be hot, hot, ardent; in this way it would not happen to priests what happen to me. But now you have thousands, tens of thousands, more than a million priests who are like me, lukewarm and not ... not (cries).
Exorcist: Say the truth!
Garandieu: ... and they no longer correspond to grace, it is what will happen to them if they do not convert, if they do not entirely welcome in them the fire of the Holy Spirit and if they do not let Him act, it will not be better than what happened to me, Verdi. I am very unhappy in hell. I wish I had never lived. Especially I would like, if I had to live, to be able to go back and be able to do better. How I would like to do better! How I would like to remain on my knees day and night, praying to HIM UP THERE (indicating upward) and ask for forgiveness; I would call to my aid all the angels and all the saints in order to not follow again the road to perdition. But (with a loud voice), I, I (groans) I CAN NO LONGER GO BACK ... I CAN NO LONGER GO BACK (shouting with a shocking voice) I AM DAMNED!
Jesus Christ gave us the example of temperance
The priests do not know what it means to be damned. They (with despair) do not know what Hell is! At the present time, nearly everyone on earth takes the line of least resistance. They believe they must live happily, they must enjoy as much as one can enjoy in life. They believe, however, that today one can no longer change the humanization and modernism, and that you have to go with the times. Bishops, cardinals and abbots give an example that is no better than that given by their subordinates. Do they live according to the simplicity that Christ used to practice in His meals and the kind of food He ate? As the Gospel says, Jesus Christ did indeed participate in banquets, to which He was invited by various people, but at these meals, He did not eat very much. But He did so only because ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and only the truth, Verdi, say the truth and only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: He did this, so to speak, for charity toward the neighbor, He did not eat very much. He always ate quite frugally, and we will not talk about the times when He was not attending the feasts. CHRIST SUFFERED HUNGER VERY MUCH, MORE THAN YOU THINK. The Holy Family and the Apostles suffered greatly from hunger and fasting, otherwise they would not have received the graces that were granted to them.
Of course Christ had in Him all the fullness of grace, He no longer had need of grace, and in particular would not have been necessary to implore grace with prayer. He was the Grace and the Light in Person. But He had to give the example to the apostles and to all of humanity, in particular (with a loud voice) to the priests, bishops, superiors, cardinals and the Pope.
He gave the example in the most complete degree, the best and the most perfect, but what good did it do?
Now the priests eat at the tables more richly served with "dessert", wine and all the condiments. Sometimes they go on a spree to the point of hurting their health, and they even believe that it is quite normal when one is a bishop or one has a high place.
The cooks who make food for these bishops and religious authorities, and also for certain priests, believe with the utmost good faith, that you should bring to the table this and that. "He is a great lord; he is dressed with high dignity, we ought to be ashamed if we do not serve them this and that." But they forget that it is not the imitation of Christ.
It would be better for these cooks to indicate to the bishops, priests, superiors or cardinals that Christ gave the example of poverty, of poverty and virtue. HE UP THERE (pointing upwards) wants us to practice the imitation of Christ (with a loud voice) and what is being done at the present time is completely contrary to the imitation of Jesus Christ.
Many live in refinement, luxury, and abundance, to the point of excess, to the point even of sinfulness. Sin does not begin only when it really begins. Sin begins already when it is no longer taught renunciation and when it is no longer practiced. Sin already begins when the person could practice asceticism, but he does not.
Certainly, it does not start here complete sin, in its true sense. But the road that leads there already begins when you stop practicing renunciation, when we do not want to sacrifice and when we follow the path of least resistance. So the way that leads to the first sin, be it venial sin or that one arrives even to mortal sin, is no longer far away, because we down here (pointing downward) we have an immense power and we always do what we can. We are instructed so well, even we, human demons, we are instructed and guided so well that we always take the person in this way or in a better way. But when someone has never really...
Exorcist: Speak the truth in the name of Jesus Christ and only the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth!
The stages of the fall
Garandieu: ... when someone has never really well, perfectly followed the way of Christ with His poverty and His virtues, the way of prayer, of the Cross, of renunciation, of sacrifice, of virtue, when he omits only one of these things or neglects it completely, then we try to take him from that point. If it is just a fiber of his cloths, it is though already a fiber and over time we can poison all of his clothes (groans). I do not want to talk anymore.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, for the glory of God, about your life, about how the life of the priest should be! Say the truth for the glory of God!
Garandieu: My priesthood, I ... Perhaps, I thought I had a vocation, and I wanted ... Of course, I meant to become a good priest, but a priest, must never forget, a priest is in more danger of being seduced than a lay person by us down here (from hell). Perhaps also the laity have this danger, especially the privileged souls or those who hold an important position. But a priest has a very high consecration. And because he has a very high consecration, and with it can harm us down here (pointing downward) in the most devastating way, we rage more against priests than against other men. This is what happened (crying), this is what happen also to me. I thought ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God, only the truth about your life!
Abandonment of prayer
Garandieu: ... I thought, now I am a priest. I have reached my goal. At first I exercised my ministry still pretty well, but then, then, at a certain point I found it too monotonous. I began to neglect the prayer of the Breviary. At first I no longer prayed the whole prayer. Then gradually I began to no longer recite the prayer anymore, when it was a busy day or when it seemed to be a busy day. Right at the beginning, I put it off and then all of a sudden, I ended up ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi, in the name of Jesus Christ for the glory of God! Speak the truth about your life in order to warn the priests! Say the truth, only the truth!
Garandieu: ... and then, all of a sudden, I came to think, "Ah! these tedious prayers of the Breviary! These prayers are long and take an incredible amount of time", I thought. But it would have been better not to think so, because this suspension of the prayer of the Breviary was fatal for me.
When I stopped reciting it, I fell gradually into sin. But when I fell into sin, the sin of impurity, obviously I stopped saying my Mass with recollection, already I was not in a state of grace. The Bible, and everything that is in it, was for me a reproach, the Ten Commandments and the New Testament were to me a call to order, because I no longer lived them in their truest sense. Since all of this was for me a call to order, I no longer wanted to teach the children as one should and in depth; in fact how could I inculcate in them the good while I myself no longer lived it, and for this I must say ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: In the name of Jesus Christ, in the name of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar speak the truth and only the truth about the life and conduct of the priest!
Garandieu: ... for this I must say that as for me, it happens for most of the modernists and humanists, and whatever names they bear today. How can they want to preach to children and lay people something that they themselves are no longer living? How can they want to give back to the world what they themselves no longer have, that which is no longer in the most intimate part of themselves? They would have to lie (groans). I do not want ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, of the Blessed Sacrament of the altar, only the truth for the glory of God and for the guidance of the priests!
Garandieu: Their hearts have become disreputable places, in many, many more than you think. And, when they have not yet become disreputable places, they are in any case already worm-eaten. But like an apple in which already lives a worm, it can remain over time a whole apple, juicy, intact and spread its best perfume!
Only a priest who lives himself the virtues and of them gives example to others. If the current priests, as it should be, still gave the example of virtue to young people and to the world, you would have a world a thousand times better than what you have. How can I spread the good if I do not have it in me? How will I speak about the Holy Spirit, if I myself am content to not listen to Him, because I already left the way that ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, Verdi Garandieu!
Indifference towards the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
Garandieu: ... because I had already left the way that the Holy Spirit has indicated to me and prescribed for me! It is terribly tragic, much more than you people might be able to think about it. It is all the more tragic because a priest (crying) that no longer gives a good example and is about to leave the path of virtue draws with him a mass of people or at least a good number, and this also begins at the Mass. From beginning to end a priest does not celebrate the Holy Mass with depth and compassion if his priestly conduct is not in conformity. He will arrive even, in each case it happened to me ... (almost crying).
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ and the Most Blessed Virgin ...!
Garandieu: ... he will come to the point of feeling repugnance for the Mass, to the point of preferring that it does not exist. And yet, because he is a priest, he says it, he must celebrate it before the people. Perhaps, in my case, the Sacred Host was still consecrated, and still is with thousands and thousands of priests who still believe, because God is merciful, because the faithful come with piety in the heart, and cannot know what is in the hearts of the priests, but, but (with an exhorting voice) woe, woe ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and only the truth, Verdi Garandieu, in the name of Jesus Christ, only the truth!
Adaptation of the Doctrine to an easy life
Garandieu: Woe ... (with a serious voice), woe to the priests who do not say what they should say, who no longer live what they should live and teach the faithful to follow false paths. It would be better ... it would be better that each of them should say publicly from the pulpit before all the faithful: "Forgive me, I have sinned! I am no longer on the path of virtue! Pray for me so that I can once again resume and teach you the proper way to live in the sense most alive".
This is what would be better for them to say. It would be an act of humility and we would no longer have this power over them, even if some of the people despise them. They would have in spite of everything, finally, in the deepest part of themselves, a high regard for this priest. It would be, however, a better way than the way of hypocrisy and perfidy (barely uttering the words).
Does it make sense to stand, in front, to celebrate the Mass facing the people and say, "God will forgive (labored breathing), go to Him. He understands you, go to the Father. He is the Father of Light; if you are in darkness, He will understand and will welcome you again in grace and love."
All these priests forget that certain things are necessary because this Father of Light might take again in His arms these priests or these faithful who have fallen. Of course, He takes them again, but repentance is necessary and not only is repentance necessary, because reparation is also part of repentance and of confession. If I want to improve myself, I must first eradicate these pathways that lead to sin and I are fatal to me.
I must first begin in the most intimate part of myself, and only then can I be a model for others, in all the required depth. You could say in a few words, to preach in the light of the Holy Spirit what I must preach, what I am commissioned to preach and that it would be before THE ONE UP THERE ... (pointing upwards) ... (labored breathing).
One speaks only of love of neighbor, but no longer does one speak of the love of God
One talks too much about the love of neighbor and one forgets that the love of neighbor derives only from the perfect love of God. Why speak always of love of neighbor, of reconciliation and mutual understanding if you forget the most important commandment in this regard? The first is the greatest commandment, "You shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength" ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: (groans) ... and only then comes "and thy neighbor as thyself." If these priests, each one of them, made peace with THE ONE UP THERE (pointing upwards), what else would one have to do, if they wanted to love Him; the love of neighbor would come by itself and would ensue from this. It is, it is a ... I do not want to speak!
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu in the name ... for the glory of God, in the name of Jesus Christ, of the Most Holy Trinity, of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, nothing but the truth and only the truth!
Garandieu: ... it is a sham, completely successful, of the FREEMASONRY to always say: love of neighbor, to live in love, make peace one with the other, forgive and support each other. And where do they arrive? Where do you end up with this support and this reconciliation? Look at the quotation of the suicides! If these men might see where the principle commandment really is!
Of course, it is said in the first and greatest commandment: "And thy neighbor as thyself," but that comes later: "You shall love the Lord your God." You can not truly call that love what these priests live for years, these priests who have never yet lived as bad as they do now. One must only start here. One must practice again the principle commandment and the first few sentences totally, without limitation.
And then this "your neighbor as yourself" will be included by itself. All the commandments in general are included in this main commandment. If it were observed, one would not have to talk always about charity, of love of neighbor, of attempts at reconciliation and whatever else. All this would be included in the single vision of an herb or a green branch, but nothing like this happens. They only discuss and they always talk about ecclesiastical assemblies and conferences of bishops.
Even at the top, in Rome, they do nothing but talk, debate, discuss, examine, to adopt and still to babble, to suppress yet something and let it go again, so finally there has been suppressed and allowed to pass so many things which cannot possibly last anymore, before HIM UP THERE (pointing upwards). Because HE UP THERE is not just Mercy, but He is also infinite Justice as mercy. This, I saw, I (crying), I, Verdi, Verdi. I had to experience this myself. If I had only ...
Exorcist: Garandieu, speak the truth, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ and the Most Blessed Virgin Mary!
The true love of neighbor is to snatch souls from hell with sacrifice
Garandieu: ... if only I lived better! If I had practiced virtue! If only I had prayed more! If only I had done penance! If only I had tried to love Him, HIM UP THERE! if only I had said, "I will follow You on the cross. Give me crosses for my sheep, as much as I can bear them, so that I might follow You." All this, I forgot to say. All this I forgot to say when I stopped wanting to say it! And even most of the priests of today forget to mention the imitation of Christ, of the Way of the Cross, and to say that you must do penance and atone for others so that they do not perish. This is not said. They should shout from the top of the pulpit: "You lay people, do penance, sacrifice yourself for others when you see that they are sinking into the mud of sin." It would be the greatest love of neighbor. Any other love of neighbor such as: bringing food, providing clothing, looking for houses ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and only the truth, Garandieu! Say the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: ... all this falls into ruin. Of course it is necessary for sustaining life, but normally it is God Who gives it, especially in our time, and in Europe, where most of the people have enough to eat, and where wages and living standards are so high that all get along in one way or the other. One should not boast as being the most important thing that we must help each other and support and assist each other, visit each other and come to mutually help each other. Of course we must help those in need, but you emphasize this too much. One should shout from the pulpit: "Lay people, sacrifice yourselves for such and such a soul, because he or she is in danger of sin. Pray for her, light blessed candles. Make the sign of the cross on this soul."
THE LAITY CAN DO THIS TOO. They do not have the high power of the blessing of the priest, but to make a sign of the cross on others, any lay person can do this. It is better that they do this with a crucifix or a rosary and throw holy water from a distance on these souls. It is not an exaggeration. Any layman can do it. And this also brings certain blessings. He should not say: "I am powerful, I can bless" and whatever else. You can do it in silence, but it brings in any case blessings, and we down here (in hell) we must retreat. You should preach (with a strong voice) ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: In the name of Jesus Christ, of the Holy Trinity, of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth and only the truth for the glory of God!
Garandieu: ONE SHOULD PREACH FROM THE PULPIT: "You people, who want to call yourselves sons of God, you who come in our church, take things seriously, take them seriously, do penance and sacrifice yourself for others. Your neighbor is in danger. Pray for one another, in order not to perish, to endure to the end and follow the path of virtue. Dear lay people, pray as much as possible for the priests and church figures, so that the Devil can not win them or assail them, and that they might be able to lead you along the straight and narrow path, because also you, priests, I am no longer, I am no longer on the earth right now, but the priesthood has remained with me. And for this I have to suffer terribly (labored breathing) ...
Exorcist: Speak, Garandieu, say the truth and only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
It is necessary to pray and to sacrifice yourselves for priests
Garandieu: ... because you too, priests, you need prayers. For every priest in the pulpit, where you have to preach, and Judas was already forced to say it: it would be better to preach from the pulpit ....
The priests should not be ashamed to tell the laity: "Pray, pray also for me, so that I might lead you on the right path. Pray regularly for us priests, because we are attacked from hell more than you think. Pray so that we might persevere to the hour of our death, and pray for yourself, one for another, so that you might follow the path of virtue unto death, and not just for a few weeks or a few years or just a momentary thing." It is a terrible malice of fate, I have to say, Verdi Garandieu ...
Exorcist: Say the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, of the Holy Cross ...
Garandieu: ... that there are many priests and many lay people who follow the path of virtue and some were good priests and good laity until, you could say in a sense, they might have advanced and reached the point of which Jesus speaks about regarding the wheat: a sower went out to sow his seed.
Grains fell among thorns and were choked, and the grains sprouted. It was believed that they sprouted well. You could say the same thing about those who have followed up to that point the path of virtue, but when the temptations come, and when all the clergy of the Church trumpet them: now you have to follow such and such and another way, now the other way is valid... , and not the way of God. But they do not tell you the way of God, but it is in a sense the same thing in the sight of Heaven, because it is the path always followed that is no longer valid today. Then they fall into doubt. At the time of temptation they fall ... and the sun came, and burns them and they dried up. This is true today for thousands and tens of thousands of priests and lay people who can not resist. They were not able to practice great virtues before and therefore they fall and are not strong when it comes to truly practicing the virtue of fortitude.
Pray in order to obtain perseverance
For this today you should pray a lot, and for perseverance, to hold strong until the end. Now it would be really topical that every priest shout from the pulpit at least two or three times a month, "Persevere, follow the way to the end, follow the way of the Cross! Look, do you think that Christ had the more beautiful part than you do?".
He should also cry out: "You who are poor and possess little in life, bear it with patience, because your reward will be in heaven." Yet it is not unlike how many Saints practiced it, for example a holy Curate of Ars who prayed and fasted to the extreme. You should tell these lay people who are living in poverty:
"Give thanks to the Lord and praise Him, because He has made to you a gift of poverty in imitation of Christ, as also the apostles had to practice it. Thank the Lord, because if you are in poverty you have much less time for idleness. Because you have to work harder in taking care of providing for yourselves the daily bread." To them there remains much less time to for idleness. Idleness is always the mother of all vices.
The poverty of large families is a great blessing
To those who are in need, who have many children, and they have to work a lot, since they do not have time to devote to luxury, to excesses or pleasures, one should say: "Praise the Lord three times a day, on your knees, and thank Him for having given to you, with your children, work, and to have offered your children so that you raise them and of them you make the next citizens of heaven, because for each of your children you will gain more grace." Instead of this, they say, sometimes they also say, and even priests, that ... I do not want to talk!
Exorcist: In the name of Jesus Christ, say the truth, only the truth, Verdi Garandieu, for the glory of God, about the priesthood!
Garandieu: ... Instead of that, when a woman or a man come to say to them "it is not good for us; we had a third or fourth child or just a second, it depends. We have housing problems. We have this problem here or another ... " Then the priest, instead of saying to them: "Hold on, live in this old apartment and in these rooms with the grace of God (crying); pray every day and thank Him for what you have! "Instead of what (crying) ... I do not want to talk!
Exorcist: In the name of Jesus Christ continue, Verdi Garandieu, say the truth and only the truth for the glory of God!
The pill leads to abortion
Garandieu: ... Instead of that these priests really become seducers and give these poor, but in reality these people are not poor, they are not so much in misery, they are not so terribly miserable ...
When I say "poor" I mean that they are because they have fallen into sin, because the priest gives them bad advice to not behave precisely according to the commandments of God in this particular case; in this case, they have to take the pill or what there is in this field. He advises them this or that, or this or that other medicine, and this medicine obviously ... the majority of doctors prescribe without batting an eyelid.
Men do not notice that they are sinking into misfortune, because from the pill and from the condoms to abortion it is not far off, and abortion is already a murder (cries); it is a mortal sin. Perhaps these priests forget it or maybe some know it, but in this time of modernism and mass defection they no longer want to admit that it is still valid today what it has always been, for thousands and thousands of years.
It is clear that humanity has increased and that is no longer what it once was when God punished immediately ONAN with death (Gen 38:9-10), but He will still punish each one of them, who, alas, I must say, take contraceptives and He will recall them to order, because this is no longer the order of things, and abortion even less. It is not in the plan of God, in His plan of salvation. And I have to ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, and only the truth, for the glory of God and in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: ... and I must say, I, Verdi, that I was a priest, that the priests, and not only priests but also the bishops, cardinals, it is evident, they should shout to their people from the height of the pulpit, yes, shout: "Endure your suffering with patience, because life on earth is not made to be lived in debauchery and luxury, to eat and drink, but to walk after the LORD and to practice the imitation of Christ."
Because there where there is still renunciation and sacrifice, this is what they should say, there is also grace, and where there are no longer neither renunciation or sacrifice, or prayer, grace also disappears. There where there is no longer grace, we watch, and if we can penetrate only through a crack, if we can only pass a horn, even so we have already penetrated into these lay people or clergy, and this then continues. If there is open a crack, it soon widens, then the whole door is opened and not only this. It is not only the whole door to be opened. Finally, the whole house is to collapse as is happening now in your churches. Yes ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi, only the truth, only the truth!
Garandieu: ... You should start over. You should do missions ... You should especially ... And Judas was forced to say it: from the height of the pulpit, not from the front on the floor ... not from here where you will soon be at a lower level. Because there are churches where you go down, you go down the steps to the altar instead of going up the steps ... What do you think, when you have to go down and you have almost ... not in all the churches, but there are, one has to almost look down at the priest; how much dispersion in the laity! Do you not think it would be better to raise the eyes? The pulpit already in a sense symbolizes heaven and there are steps to go up there ...
It is necessary to give missions to the people again, and to preach to them again. Above all one should… Judas was forced to say it: from the pulpit on high, not in front on the floor… not from here where one will soon be at an inferior level. Because there are churches where one must descend, one goes down the steps toward the altar instead of going up to the altar… What do you think, when one must go down almost… not in all the churches, but there are a good number, one has to almost look down toward the priest, how much distraction then among the lay people! Do you not believe that it would be better to lift up you eyes? The pulpit symbolizes already, in a certain sense, Heaven and there are the steps to go up to it…
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi, and nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus!
The priest must give the example of virtue
Garandieu: ... But now everything descends. Now it is not necessary to lift up ones eyes. Now you look straight ahead or downwards, toward us (hell) that we pull you toward the bottom and we try to draw you down. You should do again the missions and the allurement of a good priest who works on the people should be so great, it would be so great, if he still follows the life of virtue, that entire masses of people would be drawn in.
How do you think that this happened with a Holy Cure of Ars? His parish was very depraved and in a very pitiful state. How many things did this Cure accomplish alone! How did he achieved this? Did he do this by chance by going on (drinking) sprees, or in front of the television or with trips or with interesting conferences (just barely pronounced) and words?
No. He did it in the silence of his room or in front of the Tabernacle of the Church, that which I, Verdi, should have done; instead of that I neglected my parish and I did none other than drag it with me into misfortune. There should be thousands of Cure of Ars now in your world, but there are none, you should at least imitate him as much as possible. I must also say this, because I, Verdi, fell into this fault: you must avoid women (crying) and say every day all of the Breviary, because otherwise you can not avoid them.
In fact, when a priest, and a priest who must fight very much against his nature, says his breviary every day and tries to do his best, HE UP THERE (indicating upwards) will truly give you the grace to not succumb to temptation. If in spite of everything he succumbs, but if he continues to say his breviary every day, HE UP THERE will not be so severe to not pull him out of there, with the grace of the Holy Spirit, of the Holy Angels, of the Trinity, of the Most Blessed Virgin that you must not ever forget in life, so that he may exercise his ministry in spite of everything according to their will, to THOSE UP THERE (indicating upwards), as it should be exercised.
As I have already had to say, you should first of all say to all those who are in poverty and who are tried in suffering: "Endure your suffering with a spirit of atonement, then you will have many graces and many merits. God will be always near and He will guide you!", and, "The one who He loves most, He disciplines." (Heb 12:6; Prov 3:12)
They should say it from on high from the pulpit. It would be better that many were not helped with this or that, that there might not be one association or another, and that you do not give them money. This has already caused the ruin of many, and even the clergy. If someone is really in misery and dies of hunger, the good God must intervene and He will certainly intervene (if it is necessary for the salvation of his soul) so that he receives help in some way or another.
Otherwise, however, and this is the work of FREEMASONRY for the fall of the Church, otherwise there is no need to preach always the love of neighbor, reconciliation, and whatever else (the words are pronounced with difficulty), to hell…, to hell…, to hell with it, because it is your ruin. It is for the ruin of many, because when they see that their own priests do not follow the path of virtue, they run toward pleasure, even bishops have gotten to this point today, that they occupy themselves less and less for souls, they pray, they practice virtue and renouncement less and less, and so there is no longer the example that shows the lay people how they should live.
Moreover when the priest also announces that God is merciful, Who forgives and loves men as they are, and so it seems to the lay people that they are living according to the straight path and to be in spite of everything in God's grace, while many are in mortal sin, how can the grace of the Holy Spirit still work, if the straight path is no longer preached or lived by the priest in it’s totality? Ah! (groans) I must be the one to say it!
Exorcist: Speak, Verdi Garandieu, about what you still have to say about the priesthood, only this, only the truth, only the truth!
Garandieu: One should be shouting from the rooftops and from all the pulpits that Heaven demands the way of the Cross, and that true charity towards our neighbor is there where there is virtue. I mean that true charity toward the neighbor is in the imitation of the Cross and the imitation of the Cross is included in the atonement for others. It is the greatest and truest love of neighbor and can be practiced only when you practice the first and greatest commandment, that of love of God, and as perfectly and as completely as possible, or at least as much as you can. Where is therefore the love of God in the priests today, if they no longer have respect, if they celebrate the Mass facing the people more than toward THAT ONE UP THERE? (pointing upwards).
Exorcist: The truth and only the truth, Verdi!
The souls fall like snowflakes into hell today because the example of the priest is lacking for them.
Garandieu: They should preach and say the Mass only to honor and praise solely THAT ONE UP THERE (pointing upwards). The rest would be given to them in addition. They preach a lot, too much on the everyday life and the little things of no importance, which they should not be doing, but they forget the first and greatest thing: the imitation of Christ, in which, as I mentioned, there is also expiation and renunciation, and first and foremost expiation for others. Then there would not be thousands of souls that perish, as now they perish in mass and fall to us in hell like snowflakes, they fall into hell as the MOST HIGH UP THERE (pointing upwards) has already made to be said by way of some privileged souls.
Exorcist: Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth, only the truth, as to what the Mother of God has to say to us about the priesthood!
Garandieu: If the priests and the higher ecclesial members do not open their eyes, thousands of churches will no longer be churches and already they are no longer churches. For thousands of souls, the sermons made by their priests are already now more occasions to fall and to the loss of virtue than the ascent towards Heaven and the Good ... This is common place because the priest himself no longer practices the main commandment, because the priest himself is worm-eaten from within and no longer has the conduct that he should have. I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, and only the truth, only the truth, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: If the priests, bishops and superiors had led a proper life, now you would not have this chaos in Rome. God would not have permitted that more than one pope might have the right to govern you. That was possible to infiltrate ... and he came from FREEMASONRY. This is the cause. They are the cause. But if thousands and thousands of believers led by their priests, with sermons and good Masses, had prayed and made the Stations of the Cross in reparation, nights of atonement, but at least hours of prayer and worship at night, especially on Sundays, Rome would not be what it is. Rome would at least still be Rome. I, Verdi Garandieu, am forced to say it.
Exorcist: Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth, only the truth, as to what the Mother of God orders still more to say, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
The daily recitation of the Breviary saves the priests
Garandieu: I have to say that women today constitute the misfortune of thousands of priests. This would not happen if they still prayed as they should pray, if they took in their hands every day their Breviary and if they believed what our Church fathers taught us once and which they certainly did not invent. What they said once was proven and found to be true in life that which is better, and must be maintained. If it had been maintained, it still was, you would not have this mess, because thousands of priests, more than a million ... live, do not live, do not live, do not live, ...
Exorcist: The truth and only the truth!
Garandieu: ... in grace, I must say. Thousands do not live in grace, because they no longer say their breviary ... As I did and I stopped doing it. If I had prayed (cries of despair, crying, screaming), if I had prayed, I would have stayed on the path of virtue. My angel would have come to help me, but I no longer prayed even to him, I neglected and let everything go. I also neglected the youth that were then entrusted to me for many years, as do the priests today. I can well say that I did not neglect the youth at that time as do many priests today. I did not neglect them too much.
Without expiatory souls many priests would go to hell
That may serve as a warning, you who still live on earth. It is useful as a dire warning to the priests of the present day reminding them that they are in no way taking the right path, that they have not taken it, because among them there were still, recently or relatively recently, like me, good priests or at least still in a certain way good priests, and now are already on the broad way, on the road that leads to perdition. If you do not receive a particular grace from the pushing of a lay person or an expiatory soul, to which they had preached, to atone and pray for them, they will be lost.
This situation is terribly, frightfully tragic. I can do nothing. I must say these things exactly as they are; these things happened to myself. Can do nothing. God is not a rose water character that changes every time all the laws according to the desire of people today. He does not put sugar on the tongue each time when they have sugar cravings. He remains always the same. From the beginning He was the same. From eternity to now He has been the same and He will remain the same forever.
It is terribly tragic. That cannot be changed, despite the great desire of people today, and especially of the clergy, to change it. It is terribly tragic that it can not be changed, that man himself must change himself, immediately, without delay and begin inside of himself, in the most intimate part of himself. Did Christ not say: "If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it from you (crying)"? (Mt 18:9).
Exorcist: In the name of Jesus speak the truth and only the truth!
Garandieu: They were not empty words. It is completely, totally true. This has constituted the misfortune of many priests. The eyes ... they see too many things and inhale too many things that they should not see or receive. It begins with television and continues until ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth and only the truth, Verdi Garandieu!
Garandieu: ... to the women, who unfortunately now have the right to even stand in the choir. This applies to everything that can serve for temptation. It is particularly valid today. Judas (the human demon) was forced to say it: at one time the women wore a veil, especially during the Mass, and now they do not wear it anymore. But they should wear it again and if they do not, the altar should not be facing the people, because I, Verdi Garandieu, was still celebrating Mass facing the altar and not toward the people. But even so I succumbed to temptation. How much more the priests of the present day, which ... whose ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Garandieu, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
If your hand is a stumbling block for you, cut it off!
Garandieu: ... whose eye are at the mercy of everything, which takes in everything that should not be received. Christ said: “If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; because it is better to enter into eternal life with one hand or even without both than to be thrown into the horrible fire that never ends (with desperation) with two hands, with your two eyes and with your two feet” (Mt 5:30).
Exorcist: Speak the truth and nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus Christ!
Garandieu: I must say it. The priests of the present day believe, therefore, that the Gospel no longer exists today; that the Gospel can be interpreted and changed as they like! They believe, therefore, that Christ spoke only for His time and for His apostles, and those who lived at that time. At that time they still wore long dresses. Do you not believe that He spoke much more for the present time, which is in such great danger of being lost, where everything is made insipid by technology and the way of life of the present time, where everything falls prey to such terrible temptations and where there is no one to put an end to all this? It is like a terrible fire, you might say, like bombs that frightfully explode and spread all around them seas of fire, a fire that can no longer be put out by a little water, still poured by the good priests, and by the rivers of grace which they spread.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ for the glory of God, nothing but the truth in the name of the Most Holy Trinity!
Garandieu: The devil himself would have to appear so that they might believe. HE UP THERE (indicating upwards) allows certain things, but they all receive the grace, to everyone is granted certain hours of grace, but if you do not want ... each person has his own free will. You should read more, in the name of God, the Bible and the Gospel. That which should still be said: in the present time there has been given many revelations that can be considered to come from up there (gesturing upwards). But they are not taken into consideration at all, and even the Gospel is deformed and interpreted as one considers to be better, and so Heaven cannot ... then ... (labored breathing).
Exorcist: Verdi, only the truth, only the truth! Continue to speak in the name of Jesus Christ, say the truth and only the truth!
Garandieu: ... and so Heaven cannot even help us. He has done all that He can do and has sent down His mercy on mankind. But if humanity does not take into account a priori these graces of mercy and these attempts of mercy, that God in His great clemency wishes to offer you, how can you ... how ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, say the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, in the name of the Holy Cross! Speak the truth and only the truth about the priesthood!
God wants the yes to the Cross, also in difficult marriages
Garandieu: ... How then can grace still operate if you do not read any more the books of the Saints, for example a Cure of Ars, of an Anna Catherine Emmerich? Also Padre Pio led a good life. They all resemble each other to the letter to the extent that they were consumed in the expiation for others as true holocausts for HIM UP THERE (indicating upwards). Their sufferings and their atonement were accepted. It would also be accepted from every person if people were ready to make atonement. Often God is only waiting for a person to tell Him: "I want to ... You can send me sufferings, if You think it is appropriate. I want to endure this for such and such a person, just give me the grace for this purpose." But it is, alas, a sad fact that when God (pointing upwards) wants to test and sends sufferings, man wants to reject them with every fiber of his being. He resists them and does all in his power to not suffer, and if he ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Speak, Verdi Garandieu, say the truth regarding the priesthood, for the glory of God and the salvation of souls, only the truth, only the truth!
Garandieu: Obviously, the priests, first and foremost, should give an example and preach it; it would be the first condition. When man flounders about in his sufferings of which I just talked about, these suffering that God has imposed on him, and he wants to reject them with all his strength, then it is no longer perfect suffering according to the first and greatest commandment, suffering according to the will of the Father. One should say: "Not my will, but Yours," as Christ in the Garden of Olives. One should unite his will to the will of God, then it would have a great value.
But when you cannot do otherwise than bear the suffering, and only with reluctance and an extreme ... Certainly there are sufferings that can cause a terrible fear and loathing, but even then we must unite ourselves to God's will as much as possible. But, when I speak of resistance, I am thinking of these men that with every means possible they want to escape this suffering. That also applies to couples who no longer tolerate their spouse and want to get out by any means possible. They must endure the suffering and so could make a great atonement.
Thousands of men could suffer for other thousands of men and obtain in this way that they might not be lost. It seems that this is completely forgotten in your Catholic Church. Very rarely does one preach on this fact. It is a great thing, a predominate thing, because it is the imitation of Christ. When Christ said: " ... and your neighbor as yourself", He thus did not mean so much the good of the body in the first place, although it is part of it, but in the first place the spirit, the soul, so that this is saved (with despair and crying).
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth, only the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, in the name of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the name of St. Vincent Ferrier, only the truth, for the glory of God and for the priests!
Even today, Christ would be rejected as a public agitator
Garandieu: If Christ would return to this earth and preach the same thing, there would also be today thousands and thousands of people who would consider Him an agitator and a madman, as now thousands and thousands of people consider good priests, the true privileged souls, the men who still have good intentions, like madmen, lost on false roads, or came up through the ranks. Instead of ascending upwards, one descends toward the bottom because it is easier. Many priests, as I already said, do not preach anymore in depth, they no longer go to the bottom of things, only because it would be a reproach to themselves, since they would then have to start with themselves, which they do not want to and they believe they would not be able to that.
If they themselves were to follow the path of virtue, they could perfectly delve into the things in their sermons, but what I myself do not live and do not want, I think that neither the others can do it nor want it. I can not, as a priest, demand more from my lay people that which I myself do not live and do not do. It is terribly tragic what is happening today in your Catholic churches. This extends from the priests up to the cardinals in Rome. If they were still living as Christ and the apostles gave the example, they would show to the faithful a very different way, a way very different, much deeper, clearer, narrower, a way that leads to Heaven. This is the cause. It is the most tragic thing, because they themselves do not do penance and do not want to convert, as already John the Baptist preached it, and as Jesus Himself once said to the people and to the apostles in his repeated speeches, then ... (labored breathing).
Exorcist: Speak the truth, only the truth, Garandieu, in the name of Jesus Christ, only the truth!
Garandieu: (labored breathing).
Exorcist: In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth and only the truth about the priesthood, as far as it is in the will of God!
Illuminate the priests with tact
Garandieu: The majority of priests who fight in our days against what is deep and true and good, they do it because they themselves do not live it anymore, because their hearts have already become disreputable or because they already follow the broad way of the masses. One should have the courage (in a quiet voice) ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, only for the glory of God, in the name of Jesus Christ, in the name of the Blessed Virgin Mary, of the Immaculate, the truth about the priesthood!
Garandieu: ... For many it would be good to have the courage, when they demolish one thing or the other and utter criticisms, to throw the things right in their face, not in a way that might be offensive, but in a way that might edify them, showing them that you only want to help them. You should still learn psychology.
Exorcist: Speak the truth, only the truth!
Garandieu: That is, the current psychology is no longer good, of course, because it precipitates many down into perdition, but when I talk about psychology, I mean a healthy psychology where you do not say directly: "You are bad. You are horrible, for this reason you do not want." But you should say it with words. You should be able to say: “By not living anymore in the deepest part of themselves, they do not preach it anymore, they do not dare to preach it? Grace has already abandoned them? We know that the demons are now terribly unleashed on earth. Perhaps they need prayers ... do they themselves pray? They must return to the true depth not falsified in order to be able to lead similarly also their flock."
For men who could stand it and are themselves of a strong and tough nature you could use even more energetic means. Men are all different, as Padre Pio already said. He received men in different ways. But in any case you should have the courage to talk to them on those points, because most of them ... there are few who act out of ignorance, but most of them would preach differently and would lead their flock differently, if they themselves were willing to live better and to follow the path of renunciation. It is a great truth that, although I am now lost and in hell, I do not have the right to remain silent, because THEY (with a sorrowful voice) UP THERE (pointing upwards) order it, and because it happened to myself what... (the words are not coming forth).
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu!
Thousands of priests follow the easy way of perdition
Garandieu: ... that which (with despair crying and screaming) I never thought would happen to me. How I would live differently if I could go back! How I would drag myself on my knees, day and night, how I would pray to THEM UP THERE (pointing upwards) for my flock! Nothing would be too much for me, even if I were martyred for this reason, martyred more than once, even if I were to die a martyr! I would do it (crying of desperation) ... I would freely do it if I still could! I would gladly accept, agreeing to sacrifice if HE UP THERE might want it, if it was His will. I would aspire above all to the first virtue: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart." I would seek how to love Him. What can I do for Him? What does He expect from me now, at this hour? What would He say about this? What behavior would He recommend to me? There is a proverb that says: When in doubt, choose the more difficult. Do the priests and the laity live according to this proverb? It is just a simple proverb that was not said by God Himself, but it says the truth. It must also be widely used in the Kingdom UP THERE (pointing upwards), because thousands of priests ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth, only the truth for the glory of God, nothing but the truth in the name of Jesus Christ, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the only truth and only the truth about the priesthood!
Garandieu: ... thousands of priests follow the path of perdition because they do not choose that which is difficult, because they follow the path of least resistance and because they choose that which seems to them to be best and most suitable for themselves. But not always what seems to be better suited for the layman and for the priest is also good in His eyes, before HIM UP THERE! You must continually examine yourselves. Already Saint Paul said: "Test and keep what is good." (1Thess 5:21). It also applies in matters of faith and states of the soul. It must, you must ...
Exorcist: The truth and only the truth, Verdi Garandieu!
The priest must not familiarize too much with people
Garandieu: ... one must, as already said before me by Judas, Beelzebub and other demons, one must pray very much to the Holy Spirit, insistently, but that it not be a superficial prayer. You should examine your own heart and you will recognize the way that God wants for each person and what HE (pointing upwards) has established for each person.Every man has his path established and his mission established, in particular every priest that holds high functions, especially in the eyes of THAT ONE UP THERE. He should already be covered with dignity in the eyes of men. He should not try to come close to people and to become familiar with them, but he must follow the path that is better for him, the way that he must follow, because otherwise it will ruin himself.
The faithful no longer have respect if he tries to show himself familiar with them and wants to do everything with them. There must reign a certain, and even a great distance between the layman and the priest. God wants it. He has always wanted it and established it in this way, because the priest represents great divine powers and walks in the footsteps of Christ. If he represents these powers, he must show to the lay people the High Priest, the better, the most perfectly as possible and must above all ... He could never preach enough about respect, he could never show enough that which is God's majesty and to what point it is tragic not to bow constantly before this majesty.
It is necessary to plant in the hearts of the children respect for the Blessed Sacrament
You must already inculcate in younger children, even two or three years old. You must bring them before the Most Blessed Sacrament with great respect. You must go with them in church. When you go there, you have to tell them to pray at each genuflection, at least: "Be praised and adored at all times the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar."
They must then invoke all the Angels and praise with them the majesty of God (pointing upwards), the sublimity of heaven and the greatness of the Trinity. What does this Church therefore represent if it can no longer praise this Trinity! What does this Church therefore represent which does not place God far, far, very far above man and does not constantly remind the greatness and holiness of the Trinity, that does not remind that all depends on one thing: to please God, Who will triumph UP THERE (pointing upwards) into a great power and a great magnificence.
If the priests no longer do so today in the church, at least the parents of these children should do so continuously. You will never be able to remind them enough to the point that it is necessary to praise and bless God, even when things do not go well and when it seems that HE (pointing upwards) might not love you. Precisely in suffering, in fact, when the consequences of this suffering or the glory and the triumph which is derived from it ... you should thank God and adore Him on your knees for this suffering that He sent, because suffering purifies and leads the soul on the path of virtue.
When you want to avoid all suffering and remove all the stones from the path, even the path of virtue very quickly disappears. Look at the priests of the past and some rare priests of the present day, look at how they live, often in the most modest means, but at the same time carry with them the peace of God that surpasses by far, very far, all the rest, all the magnificence of this world. Christ said: "For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul” (Mt 16:26).
The true love of neighbor begins from the soul
And so I, Verdi, I must say that your present time is truly lacking light; your current Church that preaches to the people to practice charity towards others, when in fact there is no charity toward the neighbor. The true love of neighbor begins in the soul, not in the body. Is it not better for men to die of tuberculosis, the plague, by war or of any disease and must bear great, very great pain, but gain the glory of God, and do not lose their soul?
Instead, the men who live in great luxury, are too much the slaves of the world and keep their eyes too much on the worldly goods are in great, great danger of losing their soul. I must say, how much the FREEMASONRY has concocted here; it is completely to the detriment of your Church and people. In truth it is not the love of neighbor. It is hypocrisy and rot. It is the ruin of souls (labored breathing ).
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth!
Garandieu: If they knew to what perdition is brought to their subordinates with this so-called charity towards the neighbor, they would refrain from such talk, they would speak in a completely different way. Of course we must help others, to serve them, to help them with money when they are in need, but it is not everything and it is not the essential thing. The essential thing is to always remain true to yourself and to not sell your soul. Love of neighbor is to bring back the other person on the right track and on a better way, to know how to lead the person on this good path and lead him UP THERE (pointing upwards). This is the way, it is a very sad fact, that thousands of priests, bishops and cardinals today are tending toward ... I do not want to talk.
Exorcist: Speak the truth and only the truth, Verdi Garandieu, in the name of Jesus Christ, of the Holy Cross!
Garandieu: ... they tend to preach the love of neighbor with the pretext of "Love of neighbor" and to preach it so that it appears to originate from the Church and from God, but in reality it is the beginning of the fall and loss of virtue, because it is never true love of neighbor that does not help others to achieve the salvation of their souls (groans).
Exorcist: Verdi Garandieu, speak the truth, only the truth, as far as the Mother of God has commanded you to say about the priesthood!
It is necessary to be severe for love of neighbor because hell exists
Garandieu: The love of neighbor is also when sometimes you have to hurt another, when it is assumed that you will do harm to those who you need to talk to. He will realize, sooner or later, that what seemed to him a whiplash was, in fact, the remedy. Priests should use a lot more from the pulpit the whip and the firm words, because there is really justice and eternity (in a loud voice) and hell exists.
But many no longer do this because they themselves do not believe in hell, or even in Heaven in all of its depth and its truth. If they still believed, how could they divert thousands of men who they should instead lead towards UP THERE? (indicating upwards). What are these priests? I myself can certainly not boast, but I never did what many priests do today; I have never spoken with such cowardice! They ruin themselves with their own hands. For many, I must say, even though many do not believe, for many, down here (in hell) there is prepared already (screams, cries of immense despair) the place to which they are going towards ...
Exorcist: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu, only the truth, as far as the Mother of God …
Garandieu: (interrupting him) ... this applies equally to the bishops, to the cardinals and to the lay people. If they saw, if they saw only a hundredth of this terrible chaos toward which they are going, they would say a thousand times "mea culpa", they would grab themselves and by themselves would uproot the worm that gnaws at their corroded souls.
They would not cease to eradicate this worm before it might deposit more eggs. They would tear all the bacillus one after the other with tongs of fire if they saw what it produces in them over time. They would practice again, above all, first the love of God, the first commandment, and then the true love of neighbor, where it is said: " ... your neighbor as yourself." The true love of neighbor, which does not say, "Give to the other everything that he needs, and he will be fine." One cannot "have", when another lives in poverty. He must live better and so on. etc..
But so often in this way you do not bring any help to him. Often one does nothing more than pave the road that leads to destruction (cries of despair and tears). I, Verdi Garandieu, today I had to say it. I did not want to talk.
This is why I have long refused to say my name, but THEY UP THERE (pointing upwards) ordered me to speak, because it is what happened to myself, because I myself did not exercise my priesthood as I should have exercise it. And finally I have to say: The sixth commandment and luxury today constitute the misfortune of many priests (in a desperate voice, crying).
If they might see how terribly tragic! They would do everything ... would sacrifice themselves to the last fiber, they would change their mind and would do everything possible. They would begin again everything, they would aspire to a new beginning in the perfection and they would implore all the angels, the power of all the holy angels so that they might obtain from them their conversion, BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF DEATH AND OF DARKNESS IS VERY NEAR! ITS WORM IS NEVER EXTINGUISHED AND ITS TRAGIC AND TREMENDOUS TORMENT LASTS ETERNALLY (in despair), IT LASTS ETERNALLY! I have to say IT! I have finished speaking, I have finished speaking!
The unfortunate victim is possessed of a lucid possession that, in contrast to sleepwalking, greatly aggravates her sufferings. The lucid possessed must live consciously all the vicissitudes of exorcism. For the entire duration of the exorcism against the damned priest Verdi Garandieu, the possessed identifies herself with him, and suffers the infernal torments and its horrible despair. Two hours after the end of the exorcism, there continued to flow rivers of her tears, and for fifteen days the possessed was traumatized by this terrible ordeal. These facts, incredibly tragic, should push people today to think of the horror of hell, so that they might use all means to escape hell and reach Heaven.
Fight against hell. Conjuring of the evil spirit
On 15 November 1972, Pope Paul VI addressed the faithful present at the General Audience this touching appeal: "What are the greatest needs of the Church today? Do not be surprised how simplistic or even superstitious and unreal is our answer: one of the greatest needs is the defense from that evil which we call the Devil." The Holy Father then spoke specifically of the existence of the devil, of his action, of the means to defend oneself from it. What power might we have against the evil one! It would be enough to use what is called Exorcism.
Quick and effective formula of exorcism
Flee, cursed spirits, in the name of the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Do not look, do not listen, do not bother, do not harm, do not hinder, loosen your ties! The Lord our God, your Master, commands you: Go away and do not come back anymore, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. So be it. In the name of Jesus that everything that comes from the cursed enemy might go far away!
That is roughly the curriculum vitae of the possessed (already published in the book "WARNINGS FROM THE OTHER WORLD"; “AVVISI DALL’ALTRO MONDO”). This mother of a family is a reparatory soul that since 27 years old, or rather from her fourteenth year, was tormented by terrible crisis of fear and periods of total insomnia. She was treated during eight sessions in the clinic, with all the modern means of medicine and psychiatry.
When, after a rigorous treatment of sleep, discharged as an unexplained case, a well-known exorcist, fortuitously met, determined that it was an irrefutable case of possession. After an exorcism which was attended by several priests, in Fontanelle - Montichiari (Brescia), angelic demons (fallen angels) and also human demons (damned men) had to make, by order of the Holy Virgin, cautionary disclosures addressed to the Church.
On April 26, 1978, after having invited several bishops and representatives of psychiatry and medicine to assist, an exorcism was preformed with the participation of six priests. There was also in attendance Dr. M. G. Mouret, psychiatrist, head of the psychiatric clinic in Limoux ( France), a man of great experience in this kind of phenomena.
After observing an exorcism lasting for three hours and having spoken with the patient before and after the exorcism, Dr. Mouret testified in writing that in the present case it was neither schizophrenia nor hysteria, but the taking of possession of the person by an outside power: the phenomenon that the Catholic Church defines with the name of possession.
"I, the undersigned, Dr. MICHEL MOURET, top clinician of the Psychiatric Hospital of Limoux (Aude), after having examined Mrs. R.B. in Switzerland, and having assisted today, April 26, 1978, an exorcism done on her, in the presence of four priests, lasting three hours and a half, I declare that, for the kind of manifestations presented by the subject, it is neither a delusional psychosis, nor a hysterical personality (two diagnoses to be excluded in the present case), but of psychic phenomena that the Church usually defines as possession, at least temporary.
DR. MICHEL GABRIEL MOURET"
The possessed, MOTHER OF SEVERAL CHILDREN, was always tested up to the limit of her strength. Despite everything, she strives to fulfill her duties appropriately as the wife of a household. The unbearable torments of demons, disturbing her sleep at night, the fact of always feeling interpolated from these cursed spirits, all of this was for her a continuous martyrdom. Her only consolation were the priests who, defying 1'attuale current, had pity on her state, procured the sacraments and gave relief by pronouncing upon her the exorcism.
Are There Human Demons?
Are there damned souls that may manifest themselves from hell? Anyone who is damned is damned for eternity, and no longer has any hope of being saved (CCC 1035). It is a fact affirmed many times in the lives of the saints that not only the souls in Purgatory, but also of the damned, thus human demons, had to, by permission of God, manifest themselves from the bottom of their terrible torments. The book of G. Pasquali: "Has No One Returned From The Afterlife?" ("Nessuno e tornato dall’Aldilà?"; Ed. Hacker, Grobenzell) reports numerous manifestations of the damned. Privileged souls and saints have been approached by demons, such as the holy Cure of Ars, Saint Gemma Galgani, THE MISSIONARY ST. FRANCIS OF GERONIMO (+ 1716). In the life of the latter, who was one of the most powerful personalities of his century, it is noted the following fact. A public sinner, called Catherine, had often made fun of the sermons of the saint in Naples, where he exercised his ministry, joking about his threats of punishment, as well as the belief in hell.
One day she was looking out her window, holding her lute. Losing her balance, she fell to the street, killed on the spot. The corpse was picked up and placed on a stretcher. As in a flash it spread throughout the city the news of the accident. It came to the ears of the saint, who was preaching. Immediately he stopped and said to those around him: "Let's go see." Surrounded by a large crowd of people, he went to the place where the dead woman was laid on the stretcher and took her by the hand and begin to pray and to conjure her. On the third exhortation, while asking: "Catherine, where are you now?", the dead woman rose up and answered in a trembling voice of despair: "In hell." Then she slumped down and resumed her former position. That happened on April 4, 1704.
After the death of the saint, the archbishop of Naples asked the surviving eyewitnesses to testify under oath. There were about 250. This investigation appears in the dossier of the beatification.
In his book: "PADRE PIO STIGMATIZED FOR 50 YEARS," ("Padre Pio stigmatizzato da 50 anni") Karl Wagner, from Vienna, talks about possessed people who were led to the priest. From the mouth of a possessed, the devil cried out, "I am the grandmother! Due to my bad life and the bad life of my niece, I was able to take possession of her." Another devil spoke by the mouth of the same possessed: "I have been damned for almost a thousand years. How I have therefore suffered! If I could come back to earth, I would do everything to have pure hands as you, Father."
There are many similar cases, of the deceased who came to give very detailed news of their status. The learned Benedictine Father Calmet gathered them together into one entire book almost 125 years ago ("Apparition of the Spirits" (“Apparizioni di spiriti”), Regensburg 1855). Most of the cases cited are such that a serene and objective person could not question them. (see Jos Staudinger: "THE AFTERLIFE" (“L’ALDILÀ”), Benziger 1941).
Exorcism is not Spiritism
DIVINATION, WITCHCRAFT AND SPELLS OF THE DEAD ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT (cf. Dt 18,9 and following). So unfortunately it has become common to condemn exorcisms, using isolated sentences of the Bible, taken out of context, even that which God allows for the good of souls. With this procedure, however, one would condemn the missionary saint Francis of Geronimo that publicly implored a dead girl, even though he obtained in this way massive conversions.
SPIRITUALISM, confined in confidential circles, practices witchcraft, implores the dead and makes the tables speak for pure curiosity and for the taste of the sensational, and obtains from the infernal world, through the so-called black magic, miracles and healings, which is forbidden by the Bible (Job 31:26-28; Deut 17:2-5; 2Kings 23:4; CCC 2116); exorcism, instead, one connects on a totally different ground. Christ Himself ordered exorcism to the apostles and the disciples when he told them expressly: "Heal the sick, cast out demons ... " (Lk 9:1; Mt 10:1; Mc 6,7).
One would go far beyond the limits of this work if one wanted to look at the different species of possession, of written promises to the devil, of curses, of obsession, of possession of reparation, etc. According to the unanimous opinion of all the exorcists who have dealt with this case, we are dealing here with a case of POSSESSION ATONING for the fulfillment of a higher mission addressed to our time. One recognizes the reflection of St. Augustine: "As an artist, and a great artist, GOD MAKES USE ALSO OF THE DEVIL."
"Speaking with the devil is therefore possible. But is it useful?", asks VAN DAM in his explanations of "DEMONS AND POSSESSED” ("Demoni e Ossessi"). And basing himself on the rich experience of the exorcists, he replies in the affirmative: "Yes, because this explains many aspects of the case of possession of which one is dealing. Moreover, usually only in this way it is possible to cast out the devil. The conversation, however, must be in the first place an interrogation, and last only as long as is necessary.” The Ritual forbids curious and unnecessary questions, and gives precise orders on how the exorcism must take place.
In exorcism above all operates the power over the devil, which the priestly ordination confers on the priest. Often, only the stole and the imposition of the hands of the priest already causes violent reactions by the demons. The same thing occurs with the use of holy water, relics and blessed objects.
In the journal of the Missionaries of the Holy Family, there was written, in the fifties, the following fact: In June 1949 a group of doctors arrived from Bologna to Sarsina (Forlì, Italy) to attend an exorcism. THEY WERE ALL INCREDULOUS AT LEAST VERY SKEPTICAL. The priest began the exorcism. The surprising answers of the patient, in many different languages, with technical knowledge in many different fields, astonished the doctors. After the expulsion of the devil, they were all converted and frankly agreed that these phenomena were inexplicable by natural reason.
A PROFESSOR OF THEOLOGY WENT SO FAR AS TO DECLARE THAT TODAY THERE IS NO MORE POSSESSION, and that claims to the contrary are just superstition and stupidity. Having become a bishop, he found himself in 1950 in Sarsina and witnessed an exorcism. After the exorcism he publicly retracted his previous position and declared: “The devil exists! I would not have imagined what power and in this world, even today, if I had not seen it with my own eyes."
Why is the possessed not yet free?
Experience shows that demons are not easily driven out from their place of residence, but they come out only when they can no longer resist the power of the exorcist. For this reason it happens one must repeat several times the exorcisms, sometimes for years. One carries out a real fight with the demons; in a certain sense they defend themselves with their hands and feet, with all the means at their disposal, until they are forced to yield to the power of God.
After the possession was formally established, the exorcism, usually with the participation of several priests, was preformed several times on the person possessed, without the demons ever going away.
They always repeated that they would have to leave only when it would be obtained the Imprimatur for the book "WARNINGS FROM THE OTHER WORLD."
But despite numerous questions, the competent ecclesiastical Offices have never wanted nor attended an exorcism nor occupied themselves with the case. The possessed was only sent back to the psychiatrist; while it is well known that, after having tried unsuccessfully for years to bring relief to the unhappy person with all means, it was necessary to discharge her as an "unexplained case."
As I have already mentioned, Dr. G. Mouret, head of the psychiatric clinic in Limoux ( France), after witnessing the exorcism of 26 April 1978, testified in writing that he concluded categorically that one is dealing with possession by an outside power.
"Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell" (Mt 10:28).
Christ warns about hell
Against a certain modern spirit, which does not want to admit the existence of an eternal hell, Jesus forewarned in a peremptory manner:
“… many will come from the east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth." (Mt 8:11-12). “So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth” (Mt 13:49-50).
“And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire” (Mt 18:8).
“You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town” (Mt 23:33-34).
“Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Mt 25:41).
WHY ARE THESE WORDS OF THE LORD PASSED OVER IN SILENCE TODAY, why are men's sins forgiven and one eliminates any mention of hell on the pretext that Christ would have brought a message of joy and not of threat? Is it not the greatest sign of love to proclaim to the people the whole truth, so that they might be preserved from hell?
Do the Demons tell the truth?
Satan “speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (Jn 8:44), affirms the Scriptures. This is why one must not believe what he says. Anyone who practices spiritism is the victim of the devil of lies. It is a very different matter when God forces the demon to speak through the mouth of the possessed in order to warn men, as shown by many cases of possession. The well-known "Sermon of the devil" ("Sermone del diavolo") that a farmer of Lucerna (Italy), the servant of God, Nicholas Wolf, of Rippertschwand, obtained conjuring a possessed person: it is also the homily most pertinent for the spiritual needs of this period in time.
In the case, quoted above, of the possessions in China, a demon had to confess: "The devil would never do on their own initiative such exhortations (to conversion). It is rather the Holy Virgin who forces him." (Benedict Stolz : "The power of Mary over the demons" ("La potenza di Maria sui demoni")).
Already in antiquity, Tertullian said, "The demons, implored with the exorcism, do not dare to deceive a Christian" (cf. Van Dam).
In our case, the demons had to confess, during the exorcism done on the eve of the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 15, 1978: "At the time of Christ's life, it was not necessary that the rest of us demons might speak by the mouth of the possessed. At that time Christ spoke to proclaim the Gospel. But since it is now THE END OF TIME, of which Christ said: "many false prophets will arise" (Mt 24:24), He uses all appropriate means for the good of your souls."
In a way even more categorical, the demons must emphasize this truth with the following words: "For now, it is the end of time and many demons roam around who would send you to perdition, and false privileged souls appear as angels of light, YOU (Mary) uses us demons and have the power to do so, to make known, from our point of view, the tragic horror of hell. For this SHE has again used for this last means to save you, wretched as you are."
The Fury of Hell, Before the Revelations That It Is Forced To Make
In their terrible fury before the confessions that the Virgin Mary and the Holy Trinity forced them to do, the demons threatened to try everything in order to destroy "WARNINGS FROM THE OTHER WORLD" after its publication. Superhuman efforts were done for this purpose, while thousands and thousands of propaganda leaflets were distributed by people who spread similar publications, however, and which, moreover, were distinguished for their loyalty to the Church.
One could not bring a single objective argument against "WARNINGS FROM THE OTHER WORLD." Since one refuses to listen to the visionaries and authentic privileged souls, and to allow oneself to be impressed by the numerous Marian apparitions, God tries, as the last means of His mercy, to save our souls with the terrible confessions of demons. Alas, even this grace is opposed by a global condemnation.
As the past experience attests, the attacks against myself, as editor of this writing (the Italian editor), are not lacking; God, in fact, let the cursed spirits, forced to make these confessions, the freedom to "sift men as one sifts wheat" (Lk 22:31).
So I (the Italian translator) thank those who accept and spread this message as an instrument of salvation and of sanctification, and I forgive those who feel they cannot accept it but fight it with every means. I must not judge, because all judgment belongs only to God. For the purpose of publishing the Mercy of God, which will be made know in due time, His Justice, I would like to entrust this work to the reader.
THE WISE MAN THEREFORE EXAMINES, before rejecting such a great grace that Heaven grants us, and turns into profit the advice of St. Paul: "Test everything, hold fast what is good" (1Thess 5:21), or at least ponder the words of Gamaliel"... because if this work is of men, it will fall by itself, but if it is of God, you will not be able destroy it; you might even be found opposing God" (Acts 5:38-39).
During the second exorcism the Swiss possessed, in August 1975, done at the place of the apparition "Fontanelle" - Montichiari (Italy), the Blessed Virgin, the Mystical Rose of MONTICHIARI, by mouth of the possessed, proclaimed that the devil, although "a liar and the father of lies " (John 8:44) says only that which Heaven and She herself want, and that the demons no longer have the right to lie in the exorcisms.
EXORCISM of August 29, 1979: The devil Beelzebub declared, by compulsion of the exorcism, that God never allows that in such serious topics (such as those examined in these exorcisms), and dealing with souls who only want the good, that the demons might be allowed to deceive them.Source
