Exorcists say exorcisms rising

Catholic Exorcists report an increasing interest in exorcism

  • Catholic exorcism protocol attempts to rule out possibility of psychiatric disorders as well as the less-serious condition of “demonic oppression” before diagnosing “demonic possession” and performing exorcisms.
  • Most cases turn out to be something other than demonic possession (but a handful do not).
  • Even some in the psychiatric community acknowledge cases that seem to have no “natural” explanation.
