Mark gives an overview of the book:

From earliest childhood I saw my guardian angels.  I saw God and His Blessed Mother and the saints.  I also saw Satan and the devils.  I saw the Indians who had lived in our hills before the white men came, and I saw the settlers on horses and walking the streets of our town.  I loved being with my angel friends.  Like other psychic children I was considered different, strange, and difficult by my own family.  My Grandmother Moore had a firm and resolute belief that I ought to always see my guardian angel—and other helper angels and God and the saints—that nobody should ever attempt to prevent me from living with their love and protection.  You saw your guardian angel.  You saw helper angels with your guardian angel.  Maybe you saw God and the souls of saints, too, whatever spiritual tradition you were raised or none....

This is the real story of my life.  I am writing this memoir to tell other men and women and children—especially children—that it is all right to be a mystic.  It is good to see spirits and angels, God, and demons.  It is fantastic to have that ability and hold on to it.

            This is the story of my spiritual life.  I was born a psychic and exorcist.  It’s not something I’ve heard said very often.  There are lots of wonderful psychics walking our earth who are doing so much good.  I am impressed by their courage to publicly live uncommon lives of grace.  It isn’t easy in a skeptical world.

            I have done what I do in private since I was young.  It did not occur to me that the exorcisms I was called to perform were anything extraordinary.  In fact, the word exorcism was not in my vocabulary.  Later somebody came along and told me I was performing exorcisms and that I am an exorcist.

            I fought living my spirituality in public for most of my life.  As a very young child, I learned that being psychic is a lot more unpopular than being the most uncoordinated kid on the block.  Most friends had no idea.  I kept it under wraps until I decided I no longer cared what the world thought of me.  I’d spent decades getting the God nod.

            It was also about that time that I got the message through my guardian angel that I was to actively begin working as an exorcist.  Most of my life I had performed an exorcism here and there.  It was nothing I thought of seriously.

            Satan is not as tricky as people think.  He’s suave and debonair and plays a mean game of Let Me Steal Your Soul, but he’s not horribly clever.  God’s plan for me was to concentrate more of my life on sending Satan and other demons literally out of this world.  It was also time for me to more actively send ghosts and the souls of the dead through the Tunnel of Light to choose their eternity.  My job is to help them get to God, not to play God.

            This life is often exhausting for any exorcist whether physically, emotionally, or spiritually.  Prayer and meditation are my refuge.  I live for quiet because so much of my waking life is taken up dealing with spirits, whether angels, demons or other.  The first thing I see every morning when I wake up is St. Michael beside my bed.  The last thing I see at night is Michael beside my bed.  There are angels everywhere I turn.  They speak to me constantly.  I have reached a point where it has become difficult for me to hear the human voice unless people speak loudly to me over the voices of the angels.

            My earliest memory is seeing Jesus, Mary, Saints Catherine of Alexandria and Barbara, Saint Michael the Archangel, and other angels and saints around my crib as an infant.  They have been with me all of my life.  So many times I’ve been told that I cannot see God.  I forget that we’re not supposed to see God.  I’m not sure why I shouldn’t see Him.  God existed and we saw him long before any human ever came up with some idea we’re not supposed to see God.

Over the years I’ve become bolder when somebody challenges my spirituality.  Why can’t God do what He wants with me?  If God had not wanted me to have such an active&
