New emphasis on exorcism? Vatican denies report

Today the Daily Mail picked up a story from the Petrus website about Benedict XVI asking for special exorism squads. Apparently this became known through an interview with Fr Gabriel Amorth, the official exorcist of the diocese of Rome. It was also on Petrus that an interview appeared with Leo Darroch, the new head of Una Voce, which attributed to him all kinds of things he never said. Seems as if Petrus is not that reliable as a source of news. Catholic World News has the announcement about the Vatican rejection of the story.

We certainly could do with a few at least round here!

Yeah, but is it plausible deniable? I agree with Jackie. In our case a few squadrons wouldn't be able to do much but a battalion or two might help.

It still seems like a good time to bring back the Leonine prayers after Mass.

How Satan and his legions must have rejoiced when the prayer to St. Michael was dropped from the public prayer of the Church.
