Exorcist Archetype

August 24, 2013 , , ,

What kind of power does an exorcist have?  Technically Catholic priests are in the business of exorcism, but in day to day life some people play the role of the exorcist to friends or family.  I personally do not have much experience with this archetype, but we all recently witnessed a bookkeeper in a school in Georgia display extraordinary ability to drain the evil out of a situation.  Antoinette Tuff  found the strength to talk down a deranged gunman with 500 rounds of ammunition.  Later in an interview she told the 911 dispatcher with whom she had been on the phone that she had been terrified.  She called the courage to act the grace of God.  I imagine that priest or not, it is always the grace of God that provides the purging of evil.  Do you have any experience with exorcist archetypes?

What do you think?

Amazing, as was the woman who calmed down the man who publically hacked to death a soldier on the streets of London recently. I don’t believe any of us know how we would react in that kind of situation until we are there. Grace of God if you like, or some other spiritual force.

Indeed, she used the term grace of God because it is her vocabulary..it is a force with great power. Maybe we all have it if we need it..

Yes, whatever you want to call it- the grace of the peace within, God, or any description which is at best a feeble approximation. The witness of this is always an inspiration & a direct reminder that it is there at the base of who we are, if we will let it rise.

It’s interesting — the video.. and yet I know people who exorcise demons (or say they can) .. and give who they are I can imagine that is why they typically keep a lower profile.

I remember seeing that video and realizing what a great gift she gave everyone else as well as put her life at risk but she had faith.. and such calm
