When people say that narcissists & other cluster Bs (ie sociopaths & psychopaths) are demonic, they are not far off.
There are just too many parallels between the way that they and demons operate for it to be a coincidence.
Now, before anyone says “What does this have to to with Traditional Catholicism? Wah, wah wah”….It actually has EVERYTHING to do with traditional Catholicism.
I literally had a guy, who is linked to a traditional Catholic & Latin Mass apostolate here, get rather angry on my posts about narcissism and he told me to remove the word “Traditional” from Traditional Catholic Femininity.
I was rather shocked because I used to respect him, but then I realised that covert narcissists and wolves-in-sheep clothing are not just fruits of Vatican 2, but they also infiltrate the traditional community.
This is why I say and always say again: no matter what label a person calls themselves, please, be discerning and observe their fruits.
One of the greatest tricks of the devil is having us convinced that he or diabolical people does not exist.
This keeps us complacent, makes us less likely to be discerning, and opens us to predators who not only ruin our lives, but also make us lose our state of grace and consequently our souls.
The head-in-the-sand mentality regarding demonic activity and diabolical influence is something that I might expect to see among liberal Catholics and V2, but certainly wasn’t expecting that from a “traditional Catholic.”
Perhaps the guy was simply upset my brand of traditional Catholic femininity encourages women to be discerning, picky and careful so that they don’t end up with abusive predatory men who warp traditional gender roles as an excuse to subjugate and abuse women.
Don’t forget that narcissists are drawn to groups where they can have power over people and this is why it should come as no surprise that you will find them within traditional communities.
A lot of men hide their hatred for women as a “I just don’t like modern feminist women, so Imma get me a trad woman.” which really means “I want a woman that I can easily dominate and control, and if she objects to my abuse, I will simply shame her using religion and tell her she is not traditional, feminine or Christian enough.”
A feminist woman will probably fight fire with fire, so it makes sense to get a woman who is already “conditioned” to be docile, right?
Don’t forget that these men hunt the trad community for a wife or girlfriend, not necessarily because they value women, but because they want a physical and emotional punching bag, and some of even said that they see us trad girls as “Traditional Catholic Pushovers”.
You simply cannot claim to be a traditional Catholic without being conversant of and alert to the demonic influences around us.
Do you seriously think that the chaos we see in the Church and in the world around us is normal??!
NONE OF THIS IS NORMAL!
It seems a lot of so-called traditional Catholic focus more on the externals of traditional Catholicism ie the beautiful vestments, mantilla veils, submissive demure women etc and ignore the very real spiritual warfare around us.
These “Catholics” are just as useful as a pretty car with no engine – which is to say, not at all.
And this explains why so many people have been swept up by so-called trads who do not display the fruits.
Trying to embrace the traditional, Biblical Catholic life with no knowledge of the serious stuff is like giving a race car to someone who doesn’t know how to drive or allowing someone with no knowledge of chemistry to perform chemistry experiments.
It is ineffective, dangerous and in fact, irresponsible.
And now you understand why I focus not just on the pretty externals of being a traditional Catholic, but also the serious stuff.
I get so many emails and messages from my readers and some leave me completely gobsmacked!
In the last few days, someone mentioned an engaged couple, soon to be married in the TLM, where the man tells the woman to give him her paycheck and he then decides for both of them how the money is to be spent. And the woman, thinking this is what a traditional relationship is like, goes along with it.
No. This is not a traditional relationship. This is financial abuse!!
And if he is this abusive now, he will get much worse after marriage. If she is smart, she would stop giving him her money, end the engagement and run!!
A trad man would NEVER take money from his girl. In fact, it is normally the other way around – he supports her financially…….BEFORE they even get married!
Before I got married, my husband would pay for my weekly travel costs (at the time, I did not have a car), pay for my groceries and as we got closer to the wedding date, he’d help me out with my rent.
I never asked him for any of this.
He did all this without my prompting.
After marriage, he continues to provide for me and our family.
Now he doesn’t pay for my travel costs anymore. Instead, he bought me my own car and he then pays for all the running costs.
As you can see, he was already demonstrating a willingness to be a provider BEFORE we got married and that just intensified afterwards.
Similarly, if a guy is abusive, parasitical, disrespectful or neglectful during courtship, he will only become much more of that after marriage.
Marriage AMPLIFIES a person’s character.
The poor girl above is already being groomed by a narcissistic entitled person and I dread to think what would happen if she marries him.
You need to have a solid understanding of what being traditional & Biblical entails, otherwise, predators and other diabolical people will twist and use your own virtues against you…..just like the devil did.
This is why I say Narcissists are demonic.
The Bible has good reason when it said: Be not deceived. Bad company corrupts good morals.”
You cannot change a toxic person; instead, they change you and not for the better.
It is so important to distance yourself from toxic or narcissistic people.
The devil was the original narcissist and like all narcissists, he is driven by hatred and pathological envy.
“The enemy comes only to steal, kill and destroy”
Narcissists are diabolical tools of the devil and this is another reason why they are considered demonic.
Killing, destroying and stealing is what gives them feelings of power, entitlement and superiority over you – these are all narcissistic traits.
Of course, not all narcissists are serial killers, but all serial killers ARE narcissistic.
There’s nothing more narcissistic than a feeling of entitlement to take the life of another person.
There was a piece I came across about the Virgo Potens video “Demons and Serial Killers” which shows an interesting correlation between demons, serial killers, and narcissistic people.
Most narcissists are too devious and covert to actually kill multiple people because they are cognisant enough to know that they’ll get caught.
But make no mistake, all narcissists kill – in one form of the other.
Narcissists will kill your peace, kill your joy, kill your state of grace, poison and kill your friendships and relationships, kill your will to live, destroy or kill your finances and kill your ambition.
They will even destroy and kill your health through the diseases (PTSD, fibro, cancer, heart disease etc) that you will develop due to the raised cortisol levels and stress from having to interact with them.
As a result, your lifespan gets drastically reduced.
Narcissists will also kill your mental and psychological health, leaving you with anxiety, depression and other disorders, and a lot of them do harbour a sadistic desire to push you to kill yourself.
The idea of someone dying for them, because of them or as a result of their behaviour gives them unsurpassed feelings of superiority, power and control.
In short, the ultimate goal of narcissists is to kill you somehow and if they cannot do so directly, then they will do so indirectly, via disease, a shortened lifespan and pushing you to commit suicide.
Exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger mentioned in a lecture on exorcism that if we wanted to understand the psychology of demons then we ought to study the psychology of abusive relationships because demons establish abusive relationships with their prey.
Father explained that demons first begin a relationship with a victim by acting nice and then as time goes on and after they have a person under their thumb then the demon often hits the switch and shows its true evil nature by acting cruelly. ARTICLE
As you can see, it is really important to have strong discernment, arm ourselves properly, learn to recognise the traits of narcissistic people, and distance ourselves from these people quickly.
If you give them an inch, they will take a mile and before you know it, they have you trapped in their snare.
