Hiya Mary Alice,
It's nice to meet another fan of Father Martin. I first read "Hostage To The Devil" in the mid 70's after seeing "The Exorcist" in the movies. Father Martin blew me away.
It was a sad day when he died, and I'll always regret that I missed my only opportunity to meet this great man in person one evening, because I had forgotten he was giving a talk at a local library and I made other plans.
One comment that Father Martin made still troubles me. Father felt that the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by the followers of Satan. Father said in "Windswept House" that... " the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary". His book "Windswept House" has been described as a novel in which actual persons and events are disguised as fiction", but in several interviews Father Martin gave, he stated that he believed this to actually be the case.
In a "Fatima Crusader" article, Father Martin said..."Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.”
He couldn't be more direct than that....and yes, I for one believe that Father Martin was correct. I'd be interested in yours and anyone else's feelings on this (or anything else dealing with this great man).
