“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”– Winston Churchill
In that case, this priest from Poland must have really been doing good work because according to him, he’s made the mother of all enemies. Unfortunately, this antagonist has his phone number.
Father Marian Rajchel performed an exorcism in his town of Jaroslaw on a young girl, you know the way you do. Mondays…damn. But this one had some unusual repercussions according to the elderly priest. He believes his efforts must have failed because he’s started getting taunting TEXT MESSAGES (!) from the demon in question on his phone.
“She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die.” said one. The priest, shaken but undeterred, continued to pray and even answered with a message. For all the good it did…
“Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher,” was the response.
I’m not entirely dismissing the possibilities of ‘possession’ as it were, but let’s remember, this is a teenage girl from a small town, probably acting out. I’m thinking that her religious parents, unsure of what to do, and as many have before them, blamed the devil. I suspect the girl in question, probably rather displeased with being giving the Linda Blair treatment, is probably messing with the wizened priest with the technology that teenagers know best: their cell phones. Seems like an Occam’s Razor situation to me if there ever was one.
