Release Souls with This Devotion

Around 15 years ago, I discovered that we can wield unimaginable power for the souls in purgatory.  During the week of All Souls Day, from November 1-8, a soul can be released from purgatory by us on every one of those days.  That is no small thing.

Bishop Sheen’s Words Define Argentina’s Protest as Diabolical

 The fury of hell was unleashed in Argentina, October 12 outside of the Cathedral of Mar de Plata in connection with their annual March for Women.  According to LifeSite, an angry mob of pro-abortion anti-Catholic women--many topless--violently assaulted a group of men that prayed outside of the Cathedral to counter the protest. 
  The protest demonstrated the manifestation of the diabolical.  In a talk by Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen, he pointed to an example in Scripture to identify the 3 signs of the diabolical: love of nudity (public), violence, and division.  The Argentina protest is a clear example.

Our Lady Undoer of Knots
When the devil tells an exorcist:  “It is the novena to 'she who unties the knots' that destroyed my plans…,” it is a powerful endorsement.   
In the booklet, Our Lady Untier of Knots: Story of a Marian Devotion, the testimony of Capuchin Father Capriano deMeo during an exorcism in Torre LeNocelle Avellino, Italy, revealed that a possessed woman was reacting with loud screams and complaints of defeat.
