CWN Editor's Note: A Texas woman has filed suit against the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, claiming that she suffered emotional damage as a result of a lay “exorcism” performed during a charismatic prayer service. Exorcisms are allowed only with the formal permission of the diocese. The parish where the incident occurred has suspended the activities of the charismatic prayer group.
