This post was originally made back on March 24, 2012. I am reposting it due to the recent movie THE CONJURING. It was interesting to see in the movie how they asked the parents if the children had been baptized, as you will see in my story below, Lorraine still centers on this incredibly vital Sacrament. There are many other things I could comment on regarding this movie, but that's for another post.
She has the presence of a saint, and her eyes sparkle with light, life, and love. She is warm, personable, and talkative. She was also delighted when I gave her a small gift – a little statuette of Padre Pio, whom she is very devoted to. I am speaking of Lorraine Warren of Monroe, Connecticut, a pioneer in the field of demonology. I love Padre Pio as well, and it's was a delight to learn that Lorraine shares my devotion in asking this Saint to pray for us in our rosary prayers. Last October (2011), Case Manager Kim Frith and me (Team Leader, Mike Chapman) were fortunate enough to be in a group that was in her home to learn more about "the work" that we also are involved in, and about Lorraine's experiences over the years. Lorraine’s husband Ed Warren passed away in 2006 but Lorraine continues to be actively involved in cases.
God bless you Lorraine and thank you for a memorable evening. Like your beloved Padre Pio, you too are truly an inspiration.
