Ed and Lorraine Warren

Price of Fame

Since March 2014, we have had a series of daily visits from assorted people. They drive up to the house, and stop and stare, trying to peek into the house from their car. Most are quiet, a few rev their engines as they leave (the black pick up truck). Some take pictures, some just stop and stare. A few get out and enter the property even though “No Trespassing” and “Private Property” signs are visible. They have come up in their cars to me and to Lorraine. No exchanges, just staring. They come in the morning, afternoon, evening and during the night-every day. Many cars stop and pause near the Museum, as if trying to communicate with something evil. For the few who do not run when I approach, they say they want to see the museum or “that doll”. Last week, two girls came, parked in the driveway under the “Private Property” sign, got out of their car, took pictures and walked around. Unfortunately the police arrived after I told them to leave. "It was something we always wanted to do,” they said. Lorraine’s privacy was not their concern and they showed no respect. They just wanted to do what they wanted. The other day four young men walked around wanting to enter the museum. They parked out of sight as if not to be detected.

(But Someone always sees). I believe all this centers on the evil that might be in the museum.

There is a reason why Ed Warren locked the doll away- evil attracts evil. He knew they would want it -maybe to cause havoc with other people, maybe as a center of worship or possibly as an odd artifact or prize. He knew the dangers, and had hoped to give it to the Vatican before he died. You don’t own a cursed item - it owns you! Spiritually, it serves no good purpose, but acts like a beacon for evil. But we need not fear evil or the devil. It is our faith and baptism that protects us. The only way the devil enters us is through our will - our invitation. Prayer and the sacraments are powerful in bringing us closer to Christ and away from the devil.

I have a full list of license plates and pictures of cars and people. Some may simply be curious or celebrity seekers, but this happens too often and regular not to have a purpose. We daily pray for these people, and lift them up to the Lord for healing. God sees and knows. He will act.

I am convinced that is evil is being promoted through this doll unintentionally. The curiosity and obsession shown is not pleasing to God. The Old Testament tells us that our God is a jealous God. The first commandment says that I am the Lord thy God thou shall not have strange gods before Me. Having false idols invokes one of the greatest curses known in the Old Testament- which includes death.. It is also a fact that the possession of and the promotion of cursed objects are an abomination to God. Moses proclaims in Deuteronomy 7:26

“Neither shalt thou bring an abomination (idol / cursed object) into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.”

A true worshiper of God has no reason to have a cursed item since its very possession invokes a curse.

In the instructions of the Rite of Exorcism of the Roman Catholic Church, it specifically states that all contact items, (i.e. the items through which curses are incurred), must be destroyed. In Father Gabriel Amorth's books*, he tells of the process needed to safely and completely and accomplish this. Personally, since the Church says to destroy the item, the item should be destroyed, and not kept since it can influence others. There is no safe way to keep a cursed item - you and all near it are constantly in danger. Therefore, in its proper destruction, we are all safer and the presence of evil is restricted. Once again, I refer to the only expert in the paranormal, the Holy Spirit.**

The basic problem -and sin- in going to “psychics” to communicate with the dead,*** or in seeking magical help for any purpose (e.g. health, wealth for ourselves or others, bad luck or curses) is that you are going to the wrong source. All of this takes us away from God, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28.Or as Ed Warren said, if you want to talk with the dead, go to Church

If you don’t go to God, then it is Satan, the father of lies, that you go to, whether you know it or not. (St Paul says that the angel of darkness has transformed himself into an angel of light.)**** The devil’s main drive is to murder us (cf. Derek Prince). He knows how precious we all are to God, and strikes against God by turning us away from Him. Alone, we are lost sheep, victims of the wolf. With Jesus Christ, who has conquered the devil, evil and death, we need not fear. But we have so many false prophets, darkness masquerading as light, that seek to separate us from the Source of all Life. They sandwich a lie between two truths, in order to confuse and lead us away from all Truth. “You shall know them by their fruit”. (Matthew 7:20). Words mean nothing -just look at Facebook posts- it’s what we do that shows our true selves. Kindness, mercy, truth and generosity toward all are some of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Jealousy, anger, pride and greed are signs of evil. Seek not who to condemn, but strive to serve the Lord in all things. We believe and place ourselves in the palm of God’s Hands. He is our help and our protection.

*“An Exorcist Tells His Story” by Fr. Gabriele Amorth

**1 Corinthians 12:8-10. “for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.”

*** Deuteronomy 18:10-12 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you.” (I would like to add a personal note here to clarify a mistaken notion. Lorraine Warren does not communicate with the dead nor profit from it. Her gift of discernment of spirits was used to help Ed determine what was happening in a haunting, and how to resolve it. If it was human, they prayed for the soul to return to the Lord. If it was demonic, they sought the help of the Church.)

****2 Corinthians 11:14-15“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve."
