As soon as the prayer began, the woman’s body slowly started rising out of the chair.
Priests had been summoned to her house to perform the rite of exorcism and were convinced the woman was under the possession of evil. The Rev. Vince Lampert watched closely, thinking his eyes must be tricking him. But the body did seem to be rising.
Lampert was taken aback. But his mentor and fellow exorcist calmly pushed the woman back down into the chair and continued praying.
“I always tell people that if I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe it,” he said.
