Fr. Rufus Pereira, the well-known speaker, retreat giver and authority on deliverance and exorcism has died aged 79 in London. On one blog some very nasty things have been said about him by two fellow priests, but these remarks have been dismissed by others. he was apparently attacked by a fellow priest in India recently but the matter was hushed up - possibly because he wanted no action to be taken. I am not surprised that some people objected to him. Fr. Rufus often confronted evil spirits and they obviously did not like his ministry. he also did a great deal for drug addicts and, I believe, was the first Indian priest to set up a drug rehabilitation centre (Mumbai). I met him four times, three times at conferences on deliverance and once at the New Dawn Conference in Walsingham (last year). My own impression of him is that he was a man of great faith with a child-like and open heart and with a great love for his fellow priests.
