Second Annual Liber Christo Conference

Second Annual Liber Christo Conference

THE Catholic Approach to Liberation

WHEN

July 27-31, 2020

WHERE

Renaissance Denver Stapleton

Drawing on two thousand years of Catholic tradition and teaching, Liber Christo provides education, consultation, and the development of case specific protocols and spiritual weapons for bishops, priests, deacons, mental and medical health professionals and laity involved in the perennial cosmic conflict between good and evil.

Liber Christo’s vision is to be the definitive resource for reclaiming the deposit of faith, equipping the people of God for the work of liberation ministry, and the building up of the Body of Christ, that we may all attain unity of faith and reconciliation with God the Father.

Fr. Ripperger and Liber Christo, a group of lay faithful who assist Exorcists and their teams across the country and internationally, developed a method of Catholic healing and deliverance for use by Dioceses and prayer teams.  This method is highly successful, has a low incidence of recidivism, and is very efficient in identifying and addressing those cases and individuals afflicted by the demonic as well as those cases and individuals whose issues are primarily psychological.

This conference was constructed by Fr. Ripperger, SMD and Liber Christo Superior, and his Case Facilitator/Administrator, Mr. Kyle Clement. Fr. Ripperger and Mr. Clement were on the initial curriculum committee and faculty of the Pope Leo XIII Institute established in 2012. They have been working together on this diocesan protocol and team formation methodology since the SMD moved to the Archdiocese of Denver, at the invitation of Archbishop Aquila in 2016.

The Liber Christo team invites you to come and learn about Catholic healing and deliverance from some of the nation’s most talented and knowledgeable professionals.  Our conference will have four separate tracks:

  1. Priests
  2. Experienced Laity and Deacons
  3. Intermediate* Laity and Deacons
  4. Medical and Mental Health Professionals

*Novice laity and deacons desiring to attend the Intermediate level training are strongly encouraged to immerse themselves in the Liber Christo website materials to become familiar with Liber Christo methods and protocol. Additional recommendations would be to purchase and review previous conference talks by Fr. Ripperger and Dan Schneider:

Liber Christo Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Who should attend the summer conference? Isn’t it just for exorcists and their teams?

Anyone associated with the ministry of liberation who is open to learning about the Liber Christo protocol and method would be very welcome to attend the summer conference. Because the Liber Christo method encompasses healing the full spectrum of spiritual afflictions, the conference is not just for exorcists and their teams.


If I am new to the ministry or currently not on a team assisting an exorcist, which conference track should I attend?

The Intermediate Laity and Deacons track would be the one to select. This track is provided for anyone attending who is either not on a team, nor currently assisting an Exorcist, as well as anyone who is new to the ministry with little-to-no prior Liber Christo training. In order to have a grasp of this year’s Intermediate track, you are strongly encouraged to immerse yourself in the Liber Christo website materials to become familiar with Liber Christo methods and protocol. Additional recommendations would be to purchase and review previous conference talks by Fr. Ripperger and Dan Schneider:


What’s the difference between the afternoon Intermediate Laity and Experienced Laity tracks at the summer conference? Definition of Experienced and Intermediate (last year’s conference and your team is active and worked many cases through the protocol.

“Experienced” refers to experience specifically with the Liber Christo method, attendance to the 2019 Conference and your team is active and has worked many cases through the protocol. The “Intermediate” Laity track will provide some explanation of foundational concepts on which the method is based with more advanced topics than those offered last year in the Novice level sessions. If you are unsure which track to attend, please contact the Liber Christo team at info@liberchristo.com.


Are Charismatics welcome at the conference? I heard that Fr. Ripperger said he doesn’t have “a Charismatic bone in his body.”

Yes, Charismatics are welcome. Yes, Father Ripperger said that. Accordingly, the summer conference will emphasize traditional forms of prayer and worship, with Mass celebrated daily in both the Extraordinary and Ordinary form, in addition to daily Lauds and Eucharistic Adoration with simple Benediction. Music at Mass will include Gregorian Chant in Latin rather than modern praise and worship songs. It will be beautiful, and if you pay attention to the words you will hear the Holy Spirit invoked constantly.

Catholic charismatic spirituality will be strengthened and purified with a positive systematic approach to working with the demonically afflicted. Liber Christo practices will provide a method to determine if a petitioner is experiencing extraordinary diabolical activity. Often there are psychological issues, ordinary diabolical activity, and/or the effects of a failure to fully incorporate elements of the Catholic faith, which can be misinterpreted as extraordinary diabolical activity. Liber Christo practices will provide means to protect yourself and team from diabolical influence. Liber Christo methods will help everyone involved to better understand and live their faith, which reduces recidivism in the petitioner and retaliation in the practitioner. These methods depend on a functional and healthy mystical body of Christ, and rely heavily on active and ordered participation of the laity.
