One of the first black women to under go an Exorcism Clara Germana Cele (Warning Signs of Demonic Possession).
One day in 1906 at Marianhill mission school in Umzinto, South Africa, Father Erasmus Horner came to hear a strange and troubling confession from one of the young Catholic students there – she’d made a pact with the Devil. The student was 16-year-old Clara Germana Cele, known by the nuns as an ordinary, if somewhat unpredictable, young black girl who’d been orphaned by her parents as an infant and attended the school since the age of four. While the confession was quickly forgotten, in the following weeks Clara began engaging in erratic behavior – behavior that graduated to insane levels on August 20, 1906, when the startled sisters at the school witnessed Clara tearing at her clothes, growling like an animal, and engaging in conversation with seemingly invisible beings. At one point she is reported to have said: “Sister, please call Father Erasmus. I must confess and tell everything. But quick, quick, or Satan will kill me. He has me in his power! Nothing blessed is with me; I have thrown away all the medals you gave me.” And later: “You have betrayed me. You have promised me days of glory, but now you treat me cruelly.” Join us as we discuss demons and exorcism. We will also discuss how to close those gateways. Tune In!

Host Lori Hays welcomes author Chantal Noordeloos to Reverie Radio for a conversation of her newest horror release Angel Manor and Clockwork Dragon. Lori will have been thoroughly scared and wildly entertained by the time this show comes around, so be sure to tune in for a very interesting conversation with the twisted mind of a sweet loving horror writer!
Chantal Noordeloos (born in the Hague, and not found in a cabbage as some people may suggest) lives in the Netherlands, where she spends her time with her wacky, supportive husband, and outrageously cunning daughter, who is growing up to be a supervillain. When she is not busy exploring interesting new realities, or arguing with characters (aka writing), she likes to dabble in drawing.
In 1999 she graduated from the Norwich School of Art and Design, where she focused mostly on creative writing.
There are many genres that Chantal likes to explore in her writing. Currently Sci-fi Steampunk is one of her favourites, but her 'go to' genre will always be horror. "It helps being scared of everything; that gives me plenty of inspiration," she says.
Chantal likes to write for all ages, and storytelling is the element of writing that she enjoys most. "Writing should be an escape from everyday life, and I like to provide people with new places to escape to, and new people to meet."

THE GREATEST EDUCATION YOU CAN GET IS A REAL RELIGIOUS ONE
I was blessed to have the benefit of a Real Catholic education, My kindergarten school was PS189. where I learned to spill paint on my coloring book. From there on it was St. Elizabeth's grammar school all nuns and one lay teacher. From there is was on to Bishop Du Bois High School. All priests and Marist brothers and one lay gym teacher. Totally religious exposure. Did I absorb religion like a blotter? What teenager does while hormones bubble? The gift I received was knowledge of right from wrong. You can call abortion choice but I know it is murder. God says through Moses thou shalt not kill period. Especially your own. Jesus says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
So therefore knowing right from wrong does not qualify me to throw stones. However I do have an obligation to convince people in trouble from hurting their soul. The schools I was blessed to attend are no more. Convents and churches are up for sale. The same one dollar in the 50's collection basket is in the basket still. My grammar school education was free to parish members. My high school education was $12.00 a month. I had an after school job that paid $12.00 a week. Today big families three or more kids cannot afford a religious education for their children. Off they go to anti religious, anti American secular schools where teachers unions serve themselves first. Just like the fat golden calf government.

Inverted nuns are found in nine passages of the Masoretic Text of the Bible. The exact shape varies between different manuscripts and printed editions. In many manuscripts, a reversed nun is found—referred to as a "nun hafucha" by the Masoretes. In some earlier printed editions, they are shown as the standard nun upside down or rotated, because the printer did not want to bother to design a character to be used only nine times. These are sometimes referred to in rabbinical literature as "simaniyot" (markers).
Psalm 145 is an alphabetic acrostic, the initial letter of each verse being the Hebrew alphabet in sequence. (For this purpose, the usual Hebrew numbering of verse 1, which begins with the title, "A Psalm of David", is ignored in favor of the non-Hebrew numbering which treats verse 1 as beginning (Aromimkhaw, "I will exalt You"). But there is no verse beginning with the letter nun (?), which would come between verses 13 and 14. That the absence of a verse beginning with that letter was noticed and was undisputed even in antiquity.
However, the Septuagint provides a verse at this point which commences (in Hebrew) with nun— "Faithful is YHVH in all His ways, and merciful in all His works". .
