Pope Pius XII performed exorcism on Hitler from a distance
Author of New Book on Exorcism: ‘The Devil Is Not an Invention’
ROME — Much has been written about exorcism and exorcists, but to what extent do cases of possession and exorcism occur in the Vatican?
In his new book, translated as “My Name Is Satan — Stories of Exorcisms From the Vatican to Medjugorje,”(published in Italian) Italian journalist Fabio Marchese Ragona, who writes for the Italian daily newspaper Il Giornale, documents instances of exorcisms being performed in these places.
In this recent interview with the Register, Ragona recounts exorcisms carried out by recent popes, including Pius XII who performed one on Hitler from a distance, as well as the cases he has documented of possession in Medjugorje.
“The devil is not an invention of some marketing expert,” Ragona says. “Evil really exists and is just around the corner.”
