5) Catholic Exorcism

The St. Michael Center for Spiritual Renewal’s Catholic Exorcism app provides deliverance prayers and resources for Catholic laity and priests. 

“With the increasing secularization of the culture and fewer people practicing the faith, people are more susceptible to demonic activity,” the St. Michael Center for Spiritual Renewal’s Msgr. Stephen Rossetti told ChurchPOP.

“The protections of the sacraments, sacramentals and practicing the faith are disappearing in people’s lives.”

“This app provides important Catholic prayers and rituals for those needing deliverance from demonic activity. There are sections for priest exorcists, for any priest doing deliverance work, and for the laity as well.”
