8-year-old exorcist 'saving Brazilian slums'

The 8-year-old daughter of a pastor has been giving hope to some of Brazil's poorest people.
The slums of San Gonzalo on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro are rife with sickness and poverty, yet hope still exists for its people in the form of a young girl, Alani Santos, who many believe to be capable of curing the sick and performing exorcisms despite being only 8 years old.

"A lot of the time I touch people, sometimes I just pray and worship and the person is cured," she says. "It's the part when I pray and God performs miracles, my dad interviews people and they say they've been cured. That's very pleasing to see."

Libstak, at the shrine of Our Lady at Lourdes,France, they have a medical board to evaluate claims of miraculous healings.The doctors are not just catholic,but protestants,jews,etc. The paitents medical history is laid out before them,everything is care fully examined before they go and declare someone cured .They check out xrays,lab work etc. You can Google it. But I know what you are saying, it would be easier to believe if there was definte scientic proof of such claims. Yes there is a big difference between a pastor or a congragation claiming miracles and the church claiming miracles. Most... [More]

If the media would stop printing this crap, then it would eventually go away. Would take years, however. They never will. People need hope. They will grasp at whatever straws they can to find it. The job of News is to sell News (and toothpaste). They will print what people want to read.

It's bs.. You can't just exorcise someone by a touch. I can't believe some people are still so uneducated to flock to this. You can tell by the pic she is a marketing scam.

AliveInDeath7, Its not her who exorcises people by a touch,its god touching people through her. I don't know whether you believe in god , but if you believe you will see and feel the healing and miracles that god is going to perform in your life. kingno.7

Anyone can perform an exorcism- all it takes it the other person believing one is being performed on them. If they truly believed a duck could exorcise them, it would work and the duck would be an exorcist. For instance, I'm immune to exorcisms since I don't believe in them. It could be performed by the most talented exorcist in the world, and I wouldn't rock, or speak in tongues or much of anything. If these people think this girl is healing them, they will get the placebo effect.
