In a recent interview, Fr. César Truqui, a priest who participated in a course on exorcism held in Rome last year, warned that everything that is harming the family, including divorce, pleases the devil.
Fr. Truqui said that there is “a demon who specializes in the attack on the family, also mentioned in the Biblical story of Tobias, called ‘Asmodeus.’” In the Old Testament book, the demon is known to have killed seven of Sarah’s husbands and was chained in the desert by St. Raphael. The demon “is present” in many exorcisms, Father Truqui said. The priest recalled encountering the demon in exorcisms performed by the renowned 90-year old chief Vatican exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth.
With marriage constantly under attack, couples must take all care to make sure their marriage is rooted firmly in God.
Prayer is the key, couples have to pray together and families have to pray the rosary daily.
