A terrified widow called for a priest to cleanse her ‘evil’ house after she claims to have seen her dead husband appear on her bedroom wall.

Andrea Samuels said the strange shape on her wall and ceiling is her husband Brian, who died four years ago.

The 41-year-old also claims her dead dog is calling for her beyond the grave in the bathroom of her Carlisle home.

She called for Catholic priest Father Paul Dadson who used holy water to cleanse the property on Wednesday.

 

Father Dadson, of St Bede’s Catholic Church, confirmed the patches in the bedroom resembled a man and said there was also a figure in the ceiling which resembled part of an animal.

Andrea, who believes the animal in her ceiling is her dead boxer Hoob, said her house has been the scene of numerous inexplicable events.

She claims brand new furniture has broken, pictures have fallen off walls and that she has suffered personal problems since the images first appeared.

Andrea also believes that one of her pet birds, the aptly named 'Spirit', flew away after getting caught up in all the strange happenings. Her second bird, Spook, is now the only one that is left.

Andrea, who was described as being in ‘good psychological and emotional health’ by the priest, said: ‘I used to have a beautiful house and it just went.’

Upon his arrival, Father Dadson scattered holy water around the building, blessed it and said some prayers.

He arrived in Carlisle in January after working as a priest in Botswana and his native Nigeria for 13 years.

He said this is the second time he has had to carry out this kind of spiritual cleansing in the city.

He said: ‘I was there and saw something on the wall which looked to me like some kind of image.

'From a distance it appeared like the figure of a man.

‘In some houses things have been done, maybe people have carried out some kind of sacrifice or other activity that influences people with the forces of evil.’

Andrea, who has lived in her Carlisle home for ten years, now hopes the blessing will help her to move on with her life and says it has helped her discover her religious faith.

So her partner has died and she thinks it's 'evil' to see his face in the mould and water damage on her walls. She thinks her dead dog is appearing in her ceiling, she is having a religious crisis and wants to rediscover her faith, she has a shrine to Princess Diana and she's let her house get into that state. I don't think she's in ¿good psychological and emotional health¿ at all. Far from it, and no disrespect to the priest, but he isn't a psychiatrist or a mental health professional and in all seriousness I think that's what the lady would actually benefit from.

Perhaps her husband's angry that she keeps a shrine to Princess Diana but none to him.

See how quickly these prelates latch on to the vulnerable. Of course he has a vested interest in reinforcing her delusions and shame on him for exploiting her unhappiness.

She doesn't so much need a priest to cleanse her house as the social services to force her to clean it.
