The Pope: Now performing exorcisms, apparently

by | 30th, May 2013


THE new Pope Pope Francis, as everyone has clearly forgotten his name already, after watching him get unveiled like an X Factor winner on TV has a fascination with the Devil. That goes without saying because, ostensibly, his entire job is to make everyone feel guilty and warn them away from ol’ Lucifer.

However, in some quarters, they’re saying his obsession with Beelzebub is rather peculiar and that he’s been exorcising people. One ‘leading’ exorcist insists that Francis helped “liberate” a Mexican man possessed by four different demons.

Of course, the Vatican is saying that no such papal exorcism took place, but they’re denying everything at the moment, just to be on the safe side.

At the end of a Mass in Mexico, Francis blessed several wheelchair-bound faithful, including a man ‘possessed by the devil’, according to the priest who brought him, the Rev. Juan Rivas. Our Popeness put his hands on the man’s head and recited a prayer. Reports say that “the man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, shook, then slumped in his wheelchair.”

The images prompted the television station of the Italian bishops’ conference to declare that according to several exorcists, there was “no doubt” that Francis either performed an exorcism or a simpler prayer to free the man from the devil.
