Disgusted, Amorth walks out of the tribunal.

The Pope assigns him to visit a possessed boy named Henry in Spain. Henry, his mother Julia, and his rebellious young sister Amy had traveled from America to bow to possession of a obscure archaic Spanish abbey which was Henry's father's sole bequest to his associates after he died in a car accident in which Henry was plus present. The traumatized Henry has not spoken previously the accident. Workmen, who were restoring the abbey appropriately the intimates could sell it, depart after a sinister fire.

Amorth advocates the importance of prayer, while Esquibel makes mistakes as an partner exorcist, including strangling Henry in imitation of Henry antagonizes him, mocking him for his sins.

Amorth finds Julia has not been a religious zealot in the past childhood, but he convinces her to pray after she reveals she believed her guardian angel helped her in childhood.

In Rome, the Pope becomes ill though reading documents not quite the Spanish case, and is hospitalized. Amorth finds a skillfully on the abbey grounds going alongside to a obscure unassailable off by the Church as demonically dangerous. He learns that a founder of the Spanish Inquisition, an exorcist, was possessed, which allow him infiltrate the Church and accomplish many evils. Amorth plus finds the Church covered this up, and eventually discovers the make known of Henry's demon, Asmodeus, which will urge on the exorcism.

Amorth and Esquibel participate in the sacrament of response and Absolution, mutually confessing, and absolving each further of, their sins: that after Amorth, an Italian partisan, survived World achievement II and vowed to serve God in gratitude, a mentally-ill girl asked for Amorth's help, and died by suicide afterward he did not put up to her due to pride; and Esquibel fornicated with a juvenile woman he did not complex marry. The two ready themselves; Amorth instructs Esquibel to wear a Miraculous Medal necklace. During the exorcism, they have miserable visions of the women whom they failed. The exorcism succeeds unaided next Amorth offers himself to be possessed, which chimes behind Asmodeus's since stating that he wants to destroy Amorth.

Amorth tries to hang himself, but the demon doesn't allow it, preferring that Amorth infiltrate and destroy the Church. However, Esquibel helps Amorth steer away the demon, and demonic appearances resembling the two women who frightened the men. The Pope recovers, as does Henry.
