Exorcist in Zurich?

I think there is a ghost in my house.

Does anyone know whether there is an Exorcist in Zurich who will get rid of it for me?

Personal recommendations are better.

I did try google first but to no avail.

I don't want this thread to turn into a discussion on whether ghosts exist or not, I just want contact details for an exorcist.

Thanks

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

Did you give something when the kids were tricking and treating?

Anyway, maybe the local priest can help.

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

Why did this get moved into jokes and funnies when other equally unproven nonsense such as homeopathic medicine requests don't?

I understand the mods should make judgements but the reasons that such threads get such a critical response is because of the subject matter.

There are exorcists within the Catholic church and requests for information about Catholic churches in Zurich remain in on-topic so why does my thread get removed.

I can only conclude that the mods make judgements about posters and not only post contents.

Oh, well, it's Friday (but luckily not the thirteenth )

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

You'd likely need to contact the nearest Catholic diocese to place a request for a Rite but...I'm not sure they even entertain such things anymore.

As an aside, you may remember the book/movie "The Exorcist". Most people don't know that it was based on an actual event with some details changed, e.g. it was a boy, not a girl, and it took place in St. Louis not DC. One of the Jesuit priests involved in the exorcism was a family friend and frequent visitor for Sunday dinners and he only spoke of the experience once and, aside from making me sleep with the light on for a long time, made me think that there was real substance to the story and the rite itself. I didn't believe that the child could speak in tongues, etc., and he reassured me that, indeed, the child spoke a multitude of languages including latin as if they were his mother tongue.

I never did hear how the child came to be possessed, but just be sure to sleep while clutching a crucifix and you should be safe.

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

silly me, but I thought that for catholics exorcism is only when a person is possesed. When a location is involved, a regular blessing, or prayer of deliverance or whateva they should be called.
If that's the case then a normal priest should do.

EDIT: Your thread being moved??? shocker....

If you can prove to me that you're being serious, I'd be happy to move it back.

Yes, it was a true story, though Linda Blair and the spinning head were embellishments for the theatre....

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

I have found this interview, but he seems to be talking about demonic possession.

Re: Exorcist in Zurich?

I can do it for you.
Will take 3 hours and cost you chf 499.

Best if you leave me alone in the house, and let me get on with it.

preferably with some red wine and munchies. or I could bring my own...

p.s. you do have broadband, right?
