Demons Can Now Send Threatening Text Messages, Priest Claims

A Catholic priest has claimed that demons have found a way to torture people by sending threatening text messages. Stephen Rosetti, who’s also apparently a counselor and professional psychologist, insists he’s personally seen “three cases in which demons have texted the team and/or the family of the possessed person,” the Daily Star reports.

  1. Demons like to mess with victims, their families, or any priests trying to get rid of them. As Rosetti explained of his own experience with the evil beings: “Two of these cases were the most difficult cases we have had so far, and the third involved a pious family with priestly and religious vocations among the children.” He added that the targets were “high-value” and that there were “high-ranking, powerful demons involved.”
  2. So… what kind of texts would demons send? Since they can use smartphones from the beyond, what kind of messages has Rosetti seen these demons send? Well, one message was pretty gory, he claims, reading: “Her torments start now, priest… all night. We will make her bleed.” Well, that certainly sounds suggestive. Another demon took a more chilled approach, saying only: “We’re glad she’s away from you now.”
  3. Rosetti talks all about demon texting in his book, Diary of an American Exorcist. In the book, he says that all the silly things you see in horror movies with demons messing around with technology by making lights flicker and coming through TV screens is actually real and demons do it all the time.
  4. He performs up to 20 exorcisms a week, apparently. Rosetti makes quite a killing, so to speak, performing exorcisms in Washington, D.C. where he’s a well-known priest. He also has a pretty solid media career and has even appeared on Larry King Live.
