Hi Debi, good to meet you Marcus. I'm going to sleep on this tonight for two reasons.This is a serious matter and I recognize that an initial gut instinct response can make things worse. So I am treading lightly and maybe tonight some guidance will come in my dreams. Marcus, I know all too well what can go on in your mind between confession and the communion rail. Sometimes it's a little inocuos, and I look up to heaven with a perplexed look on my face, and think, "God, why did you make such gorgeous creatures?" Other times, yes I relate, Marcus. This next bit is just speaking in generalities because your situation may relate to somebody that's going to read this someday. Now is the time for a healthy body and a healthy mind and a healthy prayer life. A negative entity or a demon will use any of the seven deadly sins against you. No drugs, booze, porn, .......... C.S. Lewis wrote "The Srewtape Letters." It's about a middle-management demon advising his nephew, Wormwood, on how to steal a soul. Screwtape councils, "You don't have to push your patient (person) to murder, when cards will do." Marcus, this next part is for you specifically. There is someone in your diocese that you need to find. Start putting out feelers with parishioners or clergy that can set up a meeting with a Priest that deals with these matters. I listen to a lot of Relevant Radio and there is a frequent guest Priest who deals with demonic oppression. I'm going to contact him tomorrow and see what he advises. Don't know the man. Never met him. I will relate the accounts of the events that happened to you and I believe he may be interested.(I'm not shy.) My little voice is screaming, go to daily Mass tomorrow. That can also be projection on my part.
