Bishop, exorcist praise new exorcism movie
Catholic World News - January 28, 2011
The January 28 release of “The Rite,” a movie based upon the training of an exorcist, has attracted a spate of media coverage, with some articles informative and others condescending.
“This is an evangelizing movie,” said Father Gary Thomas, the Sacramento exorcist whose training formed the basis of the film. “The Church actually comes out looking pretty good.”
Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield (Illinois), who led a seminar on exorcism for over four dozen bishops last November, says that the movie “can be a positive thing toward giving people a more balanced understanding of what exorcism is all about.”
