The Exorcist (Egzorcysta) is a one-of-a-kind magazine in Poland, and it aims to reach readers who frequent fortune-tellers and are open to New Age spirituality.
“We are living in a time that is a veritable tornado of occultism, esotericism, divination, magic, energy healing and many other phenomena that suck people in,” reflects chief editor Artur Winiarczyk.
The monthly, which counts noted clerygmen among its contributors including exorcist Father Andrzej Grefkowicz and Jesuit priest and demonologist Father Aleksander Posacki, hopes to steer readers onto the right path.
Catholic journalist Grzegorz Gorny told Polish Radio that not very many people are aware of the dangers that may lie behind the various kinds of therapy or relaxation methods that swamp the market today.
The Exorcist will also include articles on issues that will help typical Polish families.
For example, the magazine provides tips for parents with young children who play on computer games or go on the internet, the latter regarded by the monthly as a key source of potentially threatening material.
The publication echoes the Catholic Church’s ongoing drive to combat a rising tide of secularization within Polish society. (vj/nh)
