A Prayer for Priests
By St. Therese of Lisieux

O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.

Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.

Let Your holy love surround them and
shield them from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit and
may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.

I sat with Fr. Gary Thomas who is arguably the best known exorcist in America. This video is a short segment of the unedited raw interview shot for a new documentary film called “Battling Darkness: Hollywood & the Rise of Exorcism”.

In this revealing documentary, leading voices from Hollywood and the Christian community, as well as psychologists and modern-day exorcists, discuss the mysteries of the demonic realm. Through a Biblical understanding and first-hand accounts, the film provides insights into the reality of spiritual warfare and offers keys to victory when you find yourself Battling Darkness.

Prior to 1973, Satan seemed all but dead and gone, the casualty of a modernist mindset. But with Linda Blair’s disturbing performance in The Exorcist, Satan returned with a vengeance. Since that landmark film, audiences worldwide have been fascinated with movies about demonic possession and the spirit realm. However, given Hollywood’s tendency to take creative license, the question arises, “Is the visage of Satan now presented Biblical or distorted?” And more importantly, how have these images influenced society’s consideration of both the demonic and spiritual warfare?

Battling Darkness is a thought-provoking documentary that examines these questions with objectivity and insight from psychologists, modern-day exorcists and leading voices in Christianity.
