The Most Reverend Dr. Michael Kline, OCR - Bishop Protector
Exorcist Order of Saint Michael
In the Name of the Father, and of His Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Holy Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God restrain him we humbly pray.
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the
Power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits,
who prowl the world for the ruin of souls. Amen .
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Holy is Thy Name.
Thy kingdom comes. Thy will be done,on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread, and
forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil One. Amen.
John 15:5 Remember always the words of Jesus: “You can do nothing without me”. We must submit ourselves to the ultimate authority of Jesus the Christ – the only Son of Almighty God – in faith, hope, confidence, trust, holiness and love.
The word exorcism is from the Greek verb exorkizein. This is an ecclesiastical meaning to take an oath, to cast out an evil spirit, and to insistently demand.
Exorcist Order of Saint Michael is a Christian Order and by its true faith and belief and traditional liturgical worship, is that of the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. The approved conservative worship liturgies are those uses accepted by traditional Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Anglican Altar Missals. We declare that Almighty God is the ruler of this order and denomination, with His only Son, Jesus the Christ as His eternal High Priest. Bishops, priests, deacons, sub-deacons and exorcists serve as temporal regents and slaves for Jesus the Christ until his promised return. The practices and rituals associated with the organization’s religious belief are catholic-orthodox and embraces the canons of the first seven General Church Councils of the undivided ancient church. We believe in the Nicene, Apostles and Athanasian Creeds. We declare the existence of seven sacraments, namely: Holy Baptism, Holy Confirmation, Holy Matrimony, Holy Eucharist, Holy Penance, Holy Unction and Apostolic succession of Holy Orders. We believe in the communion of Saints and acknowledge the existence of angels, and their preternatural knowledge, intelligence, and abilities. We call upon the help of holy warrior angels and saints to assist us in spiritual warfare against the Evil One. We are open to helping educate devout Christians of all denominations.
Our special mission concerns the spiritual warfare against evil, by providing information, guidance, and support of God fearing individuals seeking to educate themselves as exorcists and deliverance ministers, and helping those who suffer from poltergeists, haunting, demonic oppression, possession, and obsession, for the greater Glory of Almighty God, as taught by His only Son, Jesus the Christ. Prayers for deliverance and exorcism are primarily drawn from the Orthodox Church and prayers from the Roman Ritual and compiled into an English language use.
The practice of exorcism and deliverance is serious and dangerous and should never be performed alone, nor without church authority. Lucifer and his evil spirits, especially those fallen from the angelic ranks of Principalities, Powers, and Dominations are terribly powerful and cunning and they also seek the exorcist as their “prize”. The spiritual war escalates into a battle of faith and wills until it is concluded with an obvious signal. It is absolutely critical that the exorcist has an unwavering faith in God’s Power and Authority. Faith in Jesus Christ and Holy Trinity, combined with knowledge derived from the writings and experiences of other exorcists are the two most important elements for an educated exorcist to have before the battles commence. The Holy Saints and Holy Angels are petitioned through recitation of the Litany of the Saints for their assistance in our spiritual war against the Evil One and demons. In particular the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel and Saint Raphael are called upon to aid us in these very real battles. Evil angels and evil spirits exist. They despise all that is holy and their hatred of all humans is toward total extermination – death. Satan and all evil spirits are exclusively subject to God and His Divine Authority; for that reason Exorcism must be performed in the name of God and by the authority of Christ from which he bestowed this special power to the Church.
We don’t have all of the answers, but we intend to help get those novice deliverance ministers and exorcists on a good foundational path. We do not have any catalog nor brochures at this time. We are a nonprofit religious & charity. Please write or e-mail enquiries.
A comprehensive Exorcism Ritual manual is in the process of publication to be released early 2010; the name is The Exorcist's Handbook. An instructional video series will be also produced.
