A Catholic priest in Poland claims that a demon started texting him hate-filled messages after he cast the offending spirit out of a young girl’s body during an exorcism.
Parish priest Father Marian Rajchel from Jaroslaw, which is a town in south-eastern Poland, told the Austrian Times that the demonic text messages in question started showing up on his phone after he performed an exorcism on a teenage girl. The priest claims that the texts are evidence that his exorcism failed to drive the demon from the girl’s soul, and the evil spirit is now using the girl and her mobile phone to lash out at him.

Rajchel told local media that the Devil and his followers are perfectly capable of utilizing modern technology, but that, all too often, their actions are not identified as the work of demons.
“The author of these texts is an evil spirit who has possessed her soul,” the priest claimed, adding, “Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are been used like this, however in this case it is clear.”
According to Mediaite, the priest revealed the threatening contents of the demonic texts:
“He said one of the text messages read: ‘She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die.’
He said however that he had prayed for her and sent back another text message, getting the message in return: ‘Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher.'”
Rajchel’s exorcism isn’t the only one that has been in the news recently. As The Inquisitr reported several weeks ago, a Romanian priest was forced into hiding after his release from prison, following a seven year sentence that was handed down for a botched exorcism which took the life of a 23-year-old nun in 2005. Father Daniel Corogeanu’s efforts to cast a demon out of the girl eventually proved fatal after she was strapped to a cross at a remote monastery.
Father Rajchel is convinced that the text messages he is receiving are payback for his failure to cast the demon out.
“Clearly this young girl has been possessed, and needs further help,” the priest contended, citing the demonic texts as evidence.
