    You might be talking about either Fr Malachi Martin or Fr Gabriele Amarth. I recall hearing that story as well but still can't remember which man it was.

    Regarding the OP, there was a house that had to be exorcised by a priest friend of mine. He sought permission of then Bishop of Newfoundland, who referred to a translation of the Latin original in the Roman Rite. This was quite some time ago, but apparently, all activity in the house ceased after the rite was performed.

    Not quite.

    It would've been a TOTAL bloodbath :laugh:

    Because here, we were divided both by denomination AND whether you were Irish or English, and we did NOT mix for fear of death. Thank God, truly, it is better now.

    The Anglican bishop of "newfoundland" translated the latin-Roman exorcism rite for an Anglican priest to use at a residence. I thought it would be funny if a RC priest was there because they would have gone ballistic.

    Well see, Newfoundland is settled by the English, Irish, and some Basque. Many of our communities were named after where we came from, and we also have a separation of dialect and accent. Many villages, in which both Irish and English coexisted, often divided at the bridge - and no one associated with the other. Like Northern Ireland's troubles. We have our own dialect of Gaelige, and we have Orange lodges scattered around. The separation is lesser now, but still evident in some places.

    Do you think the extremity of Roman Catholic exorcisms gives them more credibility over Protestant ones? Honestly, the ones I've seen in video are really no more elaborate or worse than what I've seen in Protestant exorcisms, and tales of the radical ones that include vomiting nails or the like are often hearsay. Protestants who reject the RCC say that the miracles are counterfeit and demonic because they don't consider RCs to be true Christians. Of course, RCC apologists say its the other way around. However, I have also heard Protestant testimonies of exorcisms of similar magnitude. For instance, a missionary in India told of an exorcism involving a girl who got morbidly sick, then spoke in the voice of some hindu spirit who wanted to claim her, then died. The missionary prayed for deliverance over the girl, who resurrected from the dead and the color returned to her skin, and doctors witnessed it.

    Only Our Blessed Lord rose again, this person cannot have been truly dead or perhaps she was resuscitated

    Idk about that Aidan...what about Lazarus? And the son of Zerapheth's widow? And the Shunammite's son? And the man who was thrown on Elisha's bones? And Jairus' daughter? And Tabitha? And Eutychas? And the saints of Jerusalem after Our Lord's ressurection?

    If I a correct, the confession in the eastern churches have prayers of exorcism. You would need the priests manual. The antiochians have the confession online I believe.
