If it weren’t so tragic, if not downright frightening, one could say that the Poles had it coming . . . namely, their own periodical publication devoted to driving out demons and other ungodly visitations. Whereas the late 20th century was the heyday for secularism and a waning of religious influence on people’s lives and thoughts, the early 21st century, by contrast, will go down in the annals of human history as the time when the beast of religion reared its ugly head again. As a member of the EU and an apparently staunchly Catholic nation, Poland now also boasts another editorial first: the world’s first monthly magazine focused exclusively on chasing out the devil.
‘Poland. It’s one of Europe’s most devoutly Catholic nations. And now, it’s becoming the first nation to launch a magazine all about chasing out the devil. Roman Catholic priests say they have created the world’s first monthly exorcism magazine to meet the demand of a growing population of Poles that are turning to demonology. 15 years ago, there were reportedly only 4 exorcists. Today, there are over 120 priests helping chase evil spirits away from people by using prayers that were approved by Pope John Paul II in 1999. The 62-page first issue called “New Age — the spiritual vacuum cleaner” has just hit news newsstands and is selling for about USD 3 per copy’.
‘With its 62-page first issue including articles titled “New Age — the spiritual vacuum cleaner” and “Satan is real”, the Egzorcysta monthly with a print-run of 15,000 by the Polwen publishers is selling for 10 zloty (2.34 euros, 3.10 dollars) per copy’.
