Exorcism against Satan and apostate angels-Pope Leo XIII-1884

Most glorious Prince of the celestial militias, Archangel St. Michael, defend us in the battle and in the fight against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness and against the evil spirits of the celestial areas. Come to the aid of men, created by God for immortality and made in his image and likeness and redeemed at great cost from the tyranny of the devil.

From the top of the apostolic seat-Pope Leo XIII-1890

Indeed, Italy would increase respect and consideration among other peoples from living in harmony with the Apostolic See; which, as she made Italians experience the benefits of her presence among them in a particular way, as well as with the treasures of faith that always spread from this center of blessing and health, he made that the great and respected Italian name spread among all peoples.

Catholic Church is a political organization to establish “supremacy of Pope over all persons”

The papal monarchy was neither designed nor calculated to foster the growth of either truth, reason or virtue. The policy and measures which it adopted were never intended to correct vice, but to make it administer to the importance of its power, and the wealth of its coffers. Its design has always been to reign supreme; and in conformity with a policy dictated by this design, it has destroyed every virtue that obtruded an obstacle to the accomplishment of its purposes, and protected every vice that appeared to favor their success.

Inquisition of Catholic Church

The first step toward the establishment of courts of inquisition would seem to have been taken in 1179 when the third Council of the Lateran issued a decree of excommunication against the adherents of the heretical sects of southern France, who are charged not only with holding abominable heretical tenets but also with practising “unheard-of cruelties against the Catholics,” demolishing the churches and massacring widows and orphans.

Papal Bull Unam Sanctam- Two Swords-1302

We are told by the word of the gospel that in this His fold there are two swords,—a spiritual, namely, and a temporal. For when the apostles said “Behold here are two swords” — when, namely, the apostles were speaking in the church — the Lord did not reply that this was too much, but enough. Surely he who denies that the temporal sword is in the power of Peter wrongly interprets the word of the Lord when He says: “Put up thy sword in its scabbard.” Both swords, the spiritual and the material, therefore, are in the power of the church; the one, indeed, to be wielded for the church, the other by the church; the one by the hand of the priest, the other by the hand of kings and knights, but at the will and sufferance of the priest.
