Exorcists report ‘alarming rise’ in demonic activity
Demand for exorcists reportedly outpacing supply as demonic infestations surge.
American clergymen and their Italian counterparts point to increasing acceptance of sin and occult rituals, which serve as an entry point for demonic entities. While only a small number of reported cases turn out to be ‘true possession’, the Church is taking measures to ensure the afflicted are cared for. According to the Italian Association of Catholic Psychologists and Psychiatrists, at least half a million people a year seek out exorcists – and the number is increasing.
