Get your Exorcise
November 13, 2010 by William K. Wolfrum
As war and economic woes spread through the world like wildfire, the Catholic Church is ready to help – by finding more exorcists.
Citing a shortage of priests who can perform the rite, the nation’s Roman Catholic bishops are sponsoring a conference on how to conduct exorcisms.
The two-day training, starting Friday in Baltimore, is to outline the scriptural basis of evil, instruct clergy on evaluating whether a person is truly possessed, and review the prayers and rituals that comprise an exorcism. Among the speakers will be Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, archbishop of Galveston-Houston, Texas, and a priest-assistant to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan.
Two days and you can be an exorcist. McDonalds won’t let you on the fryolator after two days.
