Exorcism Conference Addresses Need For More Demon-Fighting Priests

from huffingtonpost.com: On Sunday, the ninth annual “Exorcism and Prayer for Liberation” conference wrapped up at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome. It covered the phenomenon of demonic possession as well as the specter of Satanism, both of which are threats that Pope Francis believes are pressing and real. The Washington Post’s report, “A modern pope gets old school on the Devil,” examined Pope Francis’ strong emphasis on the Devil, noting, “After his little more than a year atop the Throne of St. Peter, Francis’s teachings on Satan are already regarded as the most old school of any pope since at least Paul VI, whose papacy in the 1960s and 1970s fully embraced the notion of hellish forces plotting to deliver mankind unto damnation.
