The Catholic Church's top exorcist, who claims to have sent 160,000 demons back to hell, says he wants Pope Francis to allow all priests to start performing the ritual to deal with a rising demand for exorcisms from the faithful.
Father Gabriele Amorth, 88, who also heads the International Association of Exorcists, told The Sunday Times that he will ask Pope Francis to allow all priests the right to do exorcisms without the church's approval. According to the report, priests currently need special approval from their bishop to perform the rite and it is rarely granted.
"I will ask the pope to give all priests the power to carry out exorcisms, and to ensure priests are properly trained for these starting with the seminary. There's a huge demand for them," said Father Amorth.
He explained that he was inspired to make the request after watching Pope Francis perform what he insists was an exorcism on a man "possessed by four demons" in St. Peter's Square.
"The pope is also the Bishop of Rome, and like any bishop he is also an exorcist," Amorth reportedly told La Repubblica newspaper. "It was a real exorcism. If the Vatican has denied this, it shows that they understand nothing."
"There was now, more than ever, a need for exorcists to combat people possessed by 'sorcerers' and 'Satanists,'" he noted in that report.
An 84-page update of exorcism rites compiled in 1614 and drawn up in 1998 stipulates how Catholic priests trained as exorcists should operate. According to the guidelines established by the church, they have to follow a ritual known as "De exorcismis et supplicationibus quibusdam," or "Of exorcisms and certain supplications."
Amorth explained that Pope Francis' exorcism on May 19 helped to balance the growing atheism in the world where people don't believe in the Devil anymore.
"We live in an age in which God has been forgotten. And wherever God is not present, the Devil rules," said Amorth.
"Today, unfortunately, bishops don't appoint sufficient exorcists. We need many more. I hope that Rome will send out directives to bishops around the world calling on them to appoint more exorcists."
Amorth is also an outspoken critic of yoga and Harry Potter books and dismissed them as ungodly hobbies.
"Practicing yoga brings evil as does reading Harry Potter. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil," he said.
In addressing Harry Potter, he said: "People think it is an innocuous book for children but it's about magic and that leads to evil. In Harry Potter the Devil is at work in a cunning and crafty way, he is using his extraordinary powers of magic and evil."
"Satan is always hidden and the thing he desires more than anything is for people to believe he does not exist," he noted. "He studies each and every one of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us."

This Catholic Priest seems like a good and Godly man. We are under the authority of Jesus Christ, not a man. We answer not to man, but God. Jesus said, "Take up your cross and follow me." "The works I do you shall do also, and greater works than these shall you do." There are many Preachers and Men of God around the world who ARE casting out demons right now. The Preachers don't actually do it, but is is by the Word Of God and The Spirit of Christ that these demons have to leave! These Preachers and Men Of God are being used by God to perform these Godly functions, and you are right! We need to cast out all the demons out of these posessed souls and free them. They do have to fill up their vessels with the Word Of God and resist the devil and the things of the world. It also states in the Holy Bible that when the devil is cast out, he seeks rest and finding none, he goes and finds 7 others more wicked than himself and if the vessel remains empty of the things of God, he enters back into the same vessel and takes with him the other wicked 7 demons also. This is a danger. The Bible is the only work that is alive and true, and everything in it actually can be applied to your life. People it's time to turn back to God! This new age doctrines (doctrines of devils) and this alien disclosure thing is a deception and will damn your soul to hell if you go along with it!
