Pope Francis approves the revival of exorcism as a canon Catholic practice

  


An exorcism. It’s for real. The Pope has officially revived the medieval practice in a fresh fight against evil. 
 
Spearheading this fight against demonic domination are 250 priests from 30 countries. Now, the International Association of Exorcists has gone mainstream.
The Vatican officially approves.
Vatican reports that a Vatican governing committee has put the exorcist organisation’s constitution to the test — and found it pure.

“Exorcism is a form of charity that benefits those who suffer,” the head of the association, Reverend Francesco Bamonte, said.


His group of holy warriors are now a part of canon law.
Unlike his recent predecessors, Pope Francis has a strong focus on the personification of the Devil. Satan is regularly mentioned in speeches and presentations.
He was quite clear about the personification of evil in one of his opening speeches as Pope: “Anyone who does not pray to the Lord prays to the Devil,” he declared.

The Pope has even tried his own hand at exorcism: Last year he placed his hands on the head of a man said to be possessed by four demons. Exorcists say the words he uttered were part of a prayer of “liberation”.
