It's an empty boast.   How is he going to prove it?

I'm all for him doing his exorcisms, so long as his subjects aren't forced into them... Why not? No harm, no foul...

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.

Chances are good,that if he really did vanquish demons,he had repeat offenders .
That's even a theme in the exorcist and the Amityville horror . Same demon possesses new victims

Send a detective to find traces of any spooky ghost ectoplasm they usually leave behind.

That's exactly what I was thinking! is it really 160000 demons or just a couple of demons several thousand times.  Or perhaps it's a scam like in "The Frighteners"

The most interesting aspect is "wanting to allow all priests to do the ritual."

My first thought with the mass canonization of the 800 saints recently, fast tracking them to sainthood, was that some elements within the Catholic Church believe they are in spiritual warfare and need lots of backup, now, pronto!

This sort of adds onto that hunch. Would love the Church to be more open and tell us what is going on if anything so I could know it is not just my bias confirmation kicking in now. Of course if nothing is going on then there is nothing to tell us. Would love a chat with Pope Francis or someone else just to chat.

Still if true this gives me hope!!! Whether one believes in demons or not is not really important. Example to follow:

Two people are arguing, they leave mad, return after making up but sense something off in their home and a weird scent. They begin to bless it, making crosses over doors with olive oil, then tell demons they are not welcomed. Of course if demons do not exist the couple still realizes they need better tools to help their relationship so they also look into that. In the end a better relationship is the result. True story. Cannot stop with casting away demons but if it is part of how someone sees the world, more power to them if they find real world solutions to their problems in addition.

Rely on yourself, rely on science, any other symbols, cultural beliefs, and tools added to that are just ritual that give shape, form, and comfort to the overall remedy.
Well maybe.However, if you look into the the majority of those canonized,they were victims of the Turks who refused to convert to islam,the others canonized I think were a couple of nuns.

Demons must be like bowling pins, you knock one over, the ones behind them fall too and, and a really good exorcism knocks them all out and the priest gets a score like "326 demons" in one throw.

I tend to believe in both angels and demons, but I wonder if some "exorcisms" on those afflicted with certain forms of mental/physical illness are not rather experiencing the effects of the power of belief, the so-called "placebo effect".

Here's a snippet from: http://www.scientifi...ure-in-the-mind

In Brief
  • In recent decades reports have confirmed the efficacy of various sham treatments in nearly all areas of medicine. Placebos have helped alleviate pain, depression, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory disorders and even cancer.
  • Placebo effects can arise not only from a conscious belief in a drug but also from subconscious associations between recovery and the experience of being treated—from the pinch of a shot to a doctor’s white coat. Such subliminal conditioning can control bodily processes of which we are unaware, such as immune responses and the release of hormones.
  • Researchers have decoded some of the biology of placebo responses, demonstrating that they stem from active processes in the brain.

160,000 demons, that's quite a bit. I have to wonder, does he keep a diary or something to tally that?

The 160,000 number is possibly so high because more than one demon can supposedly possess or inhabit a person at a time. So, when the priest did an exorcism, it was like cleaning house.
