Interesting anecdotes of severe exorcisms. Malachi Martin has often been criticized within the catholic church for being radical in regards to his thoughts and theology, and i seem to feel that his exaggeration description in some cases (seems almost like a fiction in writing style) does not help his position. Regardless, in regard to most of the more importants aspects of possession, he tends to agree (in comparison to the convention roman exorcists as described in Rite).
