Exorcists see rising demand, cite increase in occult activity
November 06, 2014
Exorcists have seen a rise in demand for their services, probably because of an increase in interest in the occult, the Catholic News Agency reports.
Following a meeting in Rome of the International Assocation of Exorcists, a spokesman for the group, Dr. Valter Cascioli, said that “the number of disturbances of extraordinary demonic activity is on the rise.” The situation, he said, is “becoming a pastoral emergency.”

Exorcists seem like fringe people, even within the Catholic Church. I don't understand why that is so - and further, I think that that is one of the things which contributed to the rise of pentecostalism, in Africa and Braazil as well. Those are both countries with a high record of dangling with the occult. Pentecostals seem to exorcise every service.
