Ignatius Loyola An Exorcisor Of Demons And A Healer Of The Sick

Everything that Ignatius attempted he succeeded in; and it pleased God often to bestow upon His servant a miraculous power. A woman said to be possessed for four years was brought to him. 
He said that, not being a priest, he could not exorcise her; but he prayed for her, placed his hands on her head, made over her the sign of the cross, and she was cured. 
A girl horribly convulsed was brought to him as a demoniac. But the Saint perceived that the convulsions were physical; he dispelled them by the sign of the cross.
