Exorcist: There’s a Demon That Specializes in Attacking the Family

Father César Truqui warns that everything that is harming the family, including divorce, pleases the devil.

ROME — There’s a demon that specializes in attacking the family, said exorcist César Truqui, a priest who participated in a course on exorcism held in Rome last year.
Father Truqui warned that everything that is harming the family, including divorce, pleases the devil.
Speaking to the Italian weekly Tempi in 2015, the priest said that there is “a demon who specializes in the attack on the family, also cited in the story of Tobias, called ‘Asmodeus.’”

Didn't know this was biblical.

Any scholars out there ever heard of this?

[In the Old Testament book, the demon is known to have killed seven of Sarah’s husbands and was chained in the desert by St. Raphael. The demon “is present” in many exorcisms, Father Truqui said.

Currently, about half the marriages in the U.S. will end in divorce.

Seems "Asmodeus" is doing one hell-uva  (no pun intended) job here in America;



Divorce Statistics in America

Current divorce statistics in America is estimated at 50%. This data is not accurately correct, however, it is reasonably close to the actual rate. The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that "Probably, 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue", which is actually a projection. Commonly said, 50% of all marriages in the America end in divorce. But this statement about the divorce statistics in America hides all the details about distribution, however, you can also checkout this divorce statistics page for the latest information.

Any Orthodox who has read their Bible knows about this. The Protestants left the book on the cutting-room floor. What's your excuse?

I don't know, because Catholicism is not  predicated on babbling about bible verses?

Why don't you tell me about it.

Sure, the best way to prevent babbling about verses is not to read the verses.

Go read it for yourself, it's not long. It's one of my favourite OT bits (and has inspired one of my favourite novels, as well). You'll see why Protestant squeamishness decided to cut it.

Your Mass is pretty much just a bunch of Bible verses babbled on in a prescribed order.  Even more so your Office.

Why would anyone read the Bible when there are so many internet articles to read and be outraged by?

Tobit is a book in the Bible, please don't sensationalize, or deconstruct the book.  It's a beautiful book, one of my favorites.  If you are thinking more about the demon mentioned and not about God...or Tobit, his wife, Tobias, Sarah,  her father, Archangel Raphael, the beautiful prayers, the dog, the structure of the narrative, the practices of Judaism and Christianity, or even the land and nations and time , you are reading the book incorrectly.
