This illustration of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph is by artist Jason Koltuniak for the children's book from Divine Providence Press, An Exorcist's Recipe: 4 powerful tips for spiritually protecting your family from Satan. Every Catholic family needs to know this! Exorcist Father Chad Ripperger appeared as a guest on Doug Barry and Father Richard Heilman’s United States Grace Force podcast.

Four Tips 

Barry asked the exorcist and spiritual warfare expert how families can hunker down and protect themselves from the raging spiritual battle occurring in our modern culture. Here’s the exorcist's 4 tips below:

(1) Pray the Angelus.

One of the things we found the most effective in creating a good atmosphere within the home among the parents, is if they get up and pray the Angelus at 6:00 a.m., 12:00 noon, and 6:00 p.m. There’s something about this that protects people during spiritual warfare. We’re just now wrapping our minds around what specifically makes this work, but part of it has to do with the discipline.

(2) Pray for the protection of your children.

Pray for the protection of your children on a daily basis. Spiritual warfare is so intense that you actually have to pray every single day for your children’s protection.

(3) Pray for the Intercession of Our Lady of Sorrows (Virgin Mary).

Ask Our Lady of Sorrows, specifically under that title, if there is anything going on in the lives of your children. The reason being – a lot of times, stuff is hidden and the parents don’t know what’s going on until it’s way down the road. This will be a way for the parents to come to the knowledge of it, so it can be addressed more quickly.

(4) Consecrate your family and all problems regularly to Our Lady.

In the book, Deliverance Prayers for the Laity, is the Consecration of Exterior Goods. If parents consecrate their family, and the specific problems that the family deals with, I find that this drastically impacts the strengthening of the family and rooting out the defects and the problems within the family.

But then, of course, obviously, the parents have to have a habitual life of prayer themselves and get the children praying regularly, so that when they get to those points where the temptations occur – when they start seeing this stuff – they have the discipline of a regular prayer life to fall back on.
