What emerges is a narrative that bears a powerful sense of authenticity, conveying a chilling encounter with ultimate evil. It forever dispels the superficial, silly caricatures of the evil one that travel abroad in popular culture, and compels us to accept the reality of that presence.

But in each exorcism he risks literally everything that he values. Every exorcist must engage in a one-to-one confrontation, personal and bitter, with pure evil. Once engaged, the exorcism cannot be called off.
There will and must always be a victor and a vanquished. And no matter what the outcome, the contact is in part fatal for the exorcist.

He must consent to a dreadful and irreparable pillage of his deepest self. Something dies in him. Some part of his humanness will wither from such close contact with the opposite of all humanness - the essence of evil; and it is rarely if ever revitalized.
No return will be made to him for his loss. This is the minimum price an exorcist pays. If he loses in the fight with Evil Spirit, he has an added penalty. He may or may not ever again perform the rite of Exorcism, but he must finally confront and vanquish the evil spirit that repulsed him.
