Father Robert McTeigue, SJ, is a professor of philosophy at Ave Maria University and a long time serving Jesuit Priest and is a member of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus. He has taught and lectured in North and Central America, Europe and Asia and is known for his classes in both rhetoric and medical ethics. He has long experience in spiritual direction, retreat ministry and religious formation and now works in seminary education.

We talk to Father Robert about the reality behind the block buster movie “The Exorcist” where his very own teacher was involved in the true life case. We also address some of the Controversies surrounding the Jesuits, and the reality of possession.
Father also worked closely with Professor Paul Weiss and describes his “Yoda/Skywalker” kind of relationship with him.
