Brian Patrick interviewed Patti Armstrong on the Son Rise Morning Show today between 7:30 and 7:45 (heard on our local Catholic radio station). The discussion centered on a new movie (with which I am not familiar) about exorcism. During the interview, she was highly complimentary of Scranton’s own Msgr John Esseff, and referred to him multiple times. Apparently, she used him as a resource for an article she’s writing about this movie. She said the article should appear on her website next week. She related that Msgr Esseff told her that, in his 53 years involved with exorcism and investigating situations allegedly demonic, he has encountered only two cases that he considered to be actual demonic possession. Many others involved lesser, but still serious, degrees of oppression, infestation, etc.
I’ll try to remember to pass along an update when Patti’s article is available.
