.- A book by Spanish exorcist Father Jose Antonio Fortea and published by the Thomas More Institute of the Catholic University of Asuncion has outsold The Da Vinci Code in Paraguay, with the first edition selling out in just three days.
The book, entitled “Summa Daemonniaca”, answers questions about Satan and was published in conjunction with Father Fortea’s visit to Paraguay, where he gave a series of lectures to thousands of people.
According to the daily “Cristo Hoy,” Father Fortea was in Paraguay for a week, giving lectures at various venues, including the Catholic University of Our Lady of the Assumption, and the National Sports Council stadium, where more than five thousand young people gathered to hear him speak.
According to the Paraguayan newspaper, “Father Fortea’s call to live the essence of the faith in front of thousands of young people was moving. The exhortation to live respect for the body, which is sacred because it is the temple of the Holy Spirit, to pray the rosary and to attend Mass on Sundays as weapons in the battle against evil, was like music to the ears of the thousands that longed to hear such words. Because in the end, even in the most hardened of hearts these truths can never be denied or forgotten.”
