The Vatican Is Offering: A Course On Exorcism
The Vatican is offering a course on exorcism—or casting out demons—this April to teach priests and laypeople how to recognize and fight demonic possession.
“"The devil," the Pope went on, “is a liar, the father of lies.”
In a homily last October, the Pope said that Christians need a “shield of faith” because “the devil doesn’t throw flowers at us” but “flaming arrows” to kill us.
Whereas “the nature of the topic might lend itself to sensationalism,” Barrajon said, the course approaches the topic from “a sound theology” aimed at deepening “the spiritual basis for the action of angels and demons,” flowing from the action of Jesus Christ himself, who is reported by the gospels as “casting out demons.”
