John Esseff, a priest in the Diocese of Scranton, Pa. said.
However, he believes an exorcism like this is not possible in the United States. However, he believes this could be done diocese by diocese and encourages the Roman Catholic Bishops in the U.S. to do so. "Every bishop is the chief exorcist of his own diocese," he said. "Anytime anyone with the authority uses his power against Satan, that is powerful. Every priest and bishop has that power."During the process, the bishop calls on to the power of Jesus over every court and in every single institution, as well as in every individual and family. "The whole country would have such power if bishops would exorcise their dioceses," he explained. Esseff will help in leading holy lives among the people.

Who was John? Who were the people he was addressing? John A. Esseff is a Roman Catholic priest in the Diocese of Scranton. He was ordained on May 30th 1953, by the late Bishop William J. Hafey, D.D. at St. Peter's Cathedral in Scranton, PA. Msgr. Esseff served a retreat director and confessor to Blessed Mother Teresa. Esseff's book by visiting here (http://www.msgrjohnesseff.net/?page_id=736)  Be sure to visit Msgr. Esseff's website "Building a Kingdom of Love (http://msgrjohnesseff.net)" "John saw the empty tomb and believed"(http://www.discerninghearts.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/St.-Peter-and-St.-John-Run-to-the-Sepulchre.jpg) an excerpt from today's reflection by Don Schwager: (http://www.rc.net/wcc/readings/apr20.htm) What was it like for the disciple who had stood at the cross of Jesus and then laid him in a tomb on Good Friday, to come back three days later and discover that the sealed tomb was now empty? John, along with Peter, was the first apostle to reach the tomb of Jesus on Easter Sunday morning. Like Mary Magdalene and the other disciples, John was not ready to see an empty tomb and to hear the angel's message, Why do you seek the living among the dead (Luke 24:5)? What did John see in the tomb that led him to believe in the resurrection of Jesus? It was certainly not a dead body. The dead body of Jesus would have disproven the resurrection and made his death a tragic conclusion to a glorious career as a great teacher and miracle worker. When John saw the empty tomb he must have recalled Jesus' prophecy that he would rise again after three days. Through the gift of faith John realized that no tomb on earth could contain the Lord and giver of life. John saw and believed (John 20:8). John had to first deal with the empty tomb before he could meet the risen Lord later that evening along with the other apostles who had locked themselves in the upper room out of fear of the Jewish authorities (John 20:19-23 (http://www.rc.net/wcc/readings/john2019.htm)). John testified as an eye-witness to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ: What we have seen, heard, and touched we proclaim as the eternal word of life which existed from the beginning (1 John 1:1-4). John bears witness to what has existed from all eternity. William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "Pieta" was used as the vocal point for reflection, as well as the following passages: From  John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world that [...]]]> http://www.discerninghearts.com/?feed=rss2&p=12270 William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "Pieta" (http://www.bouguereau.org/Pieta.html) was used as the vocal point for reflection, as well as the following passages: From  John 3:16-17 (http://www.usccb.org/bible/john/3) For God so loved the world that he gave* his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.k17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn* the world, but that the world might be saved through him.l Excerpts from Pope Francis' encyclical "Light of Faith (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/francesco/encyclicals/documents/papa-francesco_20130629_enciclica-lumen-fidei_en.html)": Our culture has lost its sense of God’s tangible presence and activity in our world. Jesus,John Esseff,Mount of Olives (http://www.discerninghearts.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Msgr.-John-Esseff.jpg) At The Procession With Palms - Gospel  MT 21:1-11 (http://www.usccb.org/bible/matthew/21:1) When Jesus and the disciples drew near Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find an ass tethered, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them here to me. And if anyone should say anything to you, reply, ‘The master has need of them.’ Then he will send them at once.â€� This happened so that what had been spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled: Say to daughter Zion, “Behold, your king comes to you, meek and riding on an ass, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.â€� The disciples went and did as Jesus had ordered them. They brought the ass and the colt and laid their cloaks over them, (http://www.discerninghearts.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Palm-Sunday.jpg) and he sat upon them. John, born into a wealthy Christian family, at an early age assumed the role, perhaps already held by his father, of Treasurer of the Caliphate. Very soon, however, dissatisfied with life at court, he decided on a monastic life, and entered the monastery of Mar Saba, near Jerusalem. This was around the year 700. He never again left the monastery, but dedicated all his energy to ascesis and literary work, not disdaining a certain amount of pastoral activity, as is shown by his numerous homilies. His liturgical commemoration is on the 4 December.
