Prayer of Exorcism

In the name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, strengthened by the intercession of the immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, blessed Michael and Archangel, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all the saints, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil. Psalm 67

God arises, his enemies are scattered and those who hate him flee before him as smoke is driven away so are they driven, as wax melts before the fires, so the wicked perish at the presence of God.

  1. Behold the Cross of the Lord, Flee band of enemies.
  2. He has conquered, the lion of the tribe of Judah, the offspring of David
  3. May Thy mercy, Lord, descend upon us
  4. As our great hope in thee

(The crosses indicate a blessing to be given if a Priest recites the Exorcism. If a lay person recites it he may make the sign of the Cross.)

We drive you from us, whoever you may be unclean spirits, all satanic powers, all infernal invaders, all wicked legions, assemblies and sects; in the name and by the Power of our Lord Jesus Christ, may you be snatched away and driven from the Church of God and from the souls made to the image and likeness of God and redeemed by the Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb. Most cunning serpent, you shall no more dare to deceive the human race, persecute the Church, torment God’s elect and sift them as wheat. The Most High God commands you, He with whom, in your great insolence, you still claim to be equal, “He who wants all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1Tim. 2:4)

God the Father commands you + God the Son commands you God the Holy Spirit commands you + Christ, God’s word made flesh, commands you + He who to save our race outdone through your envy, “Humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death”(Phil. 2:8) He who has built His Church on the firm rock and declared that gates of hell shall not prevail against her, because he will dwell with her “All days even to the End of the world” (Mt. 28:20). The sacred signs of the cross commands you + as does also the power of the mysteries of the Christian faith The Glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you,+ She who by her humility and from the first moment of her Immaculate Conception, crushed your proud head.

The faith of the Apostles Peter and Paul and of the other Apostles commands you + The Blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints command you + thus, cursed dragon and you, diabolical legions, we adjure you by the living God +By the true God + by the Holy God, by the God who so loved the world that he gave up his only Son, that every soul believing in him might not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Stop deceiving human creatures and pouring out on them the poison of eternal damnation, stop harming the Church and hindering her liberty. Be gone Satan, inventor and master of all deceit, enemy of man’s salvation. Give place to Christ in whom you have found none of your works; give place to the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church acquired by Christ at the price of His Blood. Tremble and flee when we invoke the Holy and terrible Name of Jesus, this Name which causes hell to tremble, this Name to which he virtues, powers and dominations of heaven are humbly submissive, this Name to which Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly Repeating:

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of Armies.

V: O Lord, hear my prayer.

R: And let my cry come unto thee.

V: May the Lord be with Thee.

R: And with thy Spirit.

Let us pray:

God of heaven, God of earth, God of Angels, God of Archangels, God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets, God of Apostles, God of Martyrs, God of Confessors, God of Virgins, God who has the power to give life after death and rest after work because there is no other God than Thee and there can be no other, for Thou art the creator of all things, visible and invisible, of whose reign there shall be no end, we humbly prostrate ourselves before thy glorious majesty and we beseech thee to deliver us by the power from all the tyranny of the infernal spirits, from their snares, their lives and their furious wickedness; deign O Lord to grant us thy powerful protection and to keep us safe and sound we beseech thee through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the snares of the devil, deliver us, O Lord, that thy Church may serve thee in peace and liberty; we beseech thee to hear us. That thou may crush down all enemies of thy church. We beseech thee to hear us.
