Education and workEdit
Prior to his priesthood he studied at the University of Navarre where he obtained a bachelor's degree in Theology. In 1998 he subsequently received a S.T.L. degree in History of the Church at the Faculty of Theology of the Comillas Pontifical University. For the licentiate he defended his thesis entitled Exorcism in the Present Age under the direction of the Secretary of the Commission for the Doctrine of the Faith of the Spain Conference of Catholic Bishops.
He is a member of the clergy in the diocese of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid). He combines his work as a theologian with his activity as pastor of Saint Mary Magdalene Parish, in Anchuelo (Madrid).
Author of several books about Demonology, demonic possession and exorcism, every year he gives lectures in dioceses and universities around the World. He carries out his ministry of praying for persons who claim to be afflicted by the Devil in Our Lady of Zulema Parish in the diocese of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid, Spain). Because of the lack of exorcists, cases come all around the nation and other countries to his church and with a general permission of his bishop he prays for them.
