How can One Protect Themselves from Demonic Possession?
Baptism, participation of the sacraments, and avoidance of dark activities are the best ways in keeping yourself from being vulnerable to demonic possession. In an "Interview with an Exorcist; Fr. Gary Thomas wrestles with the reality of Satan," Fr. Gary states, "in order to wear the armor of protection, one needs a moral life, a prayer life, a sacramental life. So it takes action on our part: How do we conduct our lives? How do we engage and serve other people? Because part of our mandate as a baptized Christian is to be in service to another" (qtd. in Coffin).
