Journalist Mat Baglio tells the story of an American Priest's who ia trained for exorcist to reveal that the phenomena of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism are not merely a remnant of the archaic past, but remain a fearsome power in many people's lives even today.



Father Gary Thomas as a parish priest was asked by his Bishop to travel to Rome to help out & Learn on exorcism. He went being a sceptic on the whole subject ! In his mind he thought that they could not know the diffrence between just being mental. To go ahead and blaim the devil.

The Rite provides fascinating vignettes from the lives of exorcists and people possessed by demons, including firsthand accounts of exorcists at work casting out demons, culminating in Father Gary's own confrontations with the Devil. Baglio also traces the history of exorcism, revealing its rites and rituals, explaining what the Catholic Church really teaches about demonic possession, and delving into such related topics as the hierarchy of angels and demons, satanic cults, black masses, curses, and the various theories used by modern scientists and anthropologists who seek to quantify such phenomena.
