Over 330 exorcists from 29 countries around the world have arrived in Czestochowa for their annual behind-closed-doors meeting to discuss new ways of fighting Satan.
And what better place to exorcise the devil himself but Czestochowa, the home to the shrine of the Black Madonna and annual destination for many pilgrims.
European exorcists meet once a year, usually in Italy or Germany. This is their second meeting in Czestochowa.
And what do you think that the exorcists are talking about today? Well, it must be that the Devil, the cloven-hoofed one, is running riot among Poland’s politicians. In the last few days we have seen His terrible work on this land:
How else can we explain Father Radio Maryja Rydzyk calling the First Lady of Poland a witch (see previous post)? Rydzyk himself said that the ‘Rydzyk Tapes’ were the ‘work of Satan’?
How else can we explain Andrzej Lepper getting booted out of the government?
How else can we explain the resignation of sports minister Tomasz Lipiec?
How else can we explain the vice president of the Polish Olympic Committee, Artur Pilka, being sacked from his post after being detained by police for purchasing a kilogram of cocaine over a three to four year period. He claims that the Columbian snow was for 'personal use only'. Sniff, sniff. The ex-sports minister was apparently in charge of getting rid of doping in Polish sport. I would hate to see the state of his nostrils!
So the hand of evil must be at work in this land. But what will the Polish voter do about all this, if they get the chance?
Will they do the exorcists' work for them? Or will they decide that it is better to stick with the devil you know, than the devil you don’t?
