Excerpt from the book’s Foreword by
Fr. John Corapi:
Father Thomas Euteneuer has performed a valuable service in giving us his book
Exorcism and the Church Militant.
Everyone seeking a more complete knowledge of the Catholic-Christian faith, indeed, reality itself, can profit
from a careful and prayerful reading of this book. Priests especially should profit from this material, for it
is my personal experience that the need for it has increased exponentially in recent years. Preparation for this
dimension of spiritual warfare is singularly lacking in almost all seminaries, novitiates, or other Catholic institutions
of learning. One of the reasons for this is that many such institutions have faculty that, from all indications,
don’t necessarily believe what the Church believes. This leaves a terrible void, so much so that it is often extremely
difficult to find a priest with even the most rudimentary knowledge of this essential facet of priestly ministry.
The effect on souls can be devastating. Hopefully this fine book will inspire many priests to equip themselves
with the necessary weapons to fight for souls in this arena.

My main purpose in writing the book is to get more of my brother priests involved in the work of forming the Church
Militant, but it can be easily read by anyone. Your own favorite priest may appreciate a copy! I also intend the
book as an antidote to the bizarre understanding of exorcism that most people have from the movie industry. Many
of the exorcism movies contain a grain of truth about the Church's warfare against the Evil One, but only the Catholic
Church truly understands spiritual warfare in all its fullest-and only the Church Militant has all the weapons
to fight it!
Note also that I am publishing a companion edition to the exorcism book called simply Demonic
Abortion. It is an extended commentary on the satanic nature of the abortion industry
and culture of death. Originally a chapter in the larger work, I took it out and made it into its own shorter book
because the subject needs much more attention, and I hope that I have done justice to it in this book. Demonic Abortion will be available for shipping on July 7th, but you will receive
a $4.95 discount if you order it now with Exorcism and the Church Militant, and we will send it to you with no additional shipping charge.
One final note about these books: All proceeds will directly benefit the Human Life International global pro-life
network which spans 100 countries of the world, and your generosity is greatly appreciated!
May the Lord bless your faith as you read these books, and may St. Michael and his angels protect you and your
family in the spiritual battle which we have to sustain against the forces of hell!
