Catholic Church: 'exorcists in urgent demand'

A rise in occult and superstitious practices has allegedly brought about a major exorcist shortage.
According to Valter Cascioli, a psychologist and scientific consultant to the International Association of Exorcists, there has recently been a sharp rise in the number of people dabbling in the occult.

"The lack of exorcists is a real emergency," he told Italian newspaper La Stampa. "The number of people who take part in occult and satanic practices, which lead to serious physical, psychological and spiritual damages, is constantly rising."

"The number of exorcists has increased in recent years, but there are still not enough to deal with a dramatic situation that affects, above all, young people who use the Internet a lot."

According to Father Vincent Lampert, who has appeared on the TV show Paranormal Witness, and Father Gary Thomas, an exorcist whose training in Rome was documented in the book 'The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist', the problem is now also prevalent in the United States as well.

Much of this, including an increase in the number of people messing around with Ouija Boards, has been attributed to the Internet as well as to the diminishing authority of the Catholic Church.

"We're gaining all sorts of knowledge, but there's still that emptiness within us that is being filled with addictive behaviour," said Fr. Lampert. "The decline in faith goes hand in hand with the rise in evil."

.... I agree with you in principle, but exorcism is endorsed by the Vampire.

That guy is a character from Poltergeist 2. He was a preacher who locked his followers up in a cave, claiming the end of the world was coming. When it didn't, he set everyone on fire, including himself. There were no vampires involved.

A good read is anything from Father Malachi Martin. He use to be a Vatican Exorcist till he started complaining about the changes in the Vatican that helps the interests of the Satanic. Most of his books are non-fiction. He did write Windswept House as fiction, about the Vatican solidifying their pact with Lucifer by performing a ritual in the 1970 in St. Peters. Let's just say that book and him calling out on the hypocricy of the Vatican ended his "Vatican Approved" Exorcist title. There aren't a shortage of Exorcists since there aren't many true possessions to demand more, most of them are N... [More]
