Pope Francis: The Mission of the Exorcist is "Irreplaceable"

Francis: Exorcists must be chosen "very carefully and with a great deal of prudence" - 

VIDEOS: Pope directs a ceremony of repentance, he confesses himself and hears confession

Vatican City ( Pope Francis has looked with generosity from the confessional chair and has suggests an exorcist on a case-by-case basis. The Catholic penitential practice must be "a credible mirror of the mercy of God," he said on Friday to those in attendance at a course on the Vatican Court of Grace, the so-called Penitentiary. It is necessary to avoid rigor and lack of understanding. A confessor who reflects his activity in prayer knows well "that he himself is the first sinner, and the first to be forgiven."

Francis continued to admonish confessors to ask for "the gift of humility." It should be clear that forgiveness is a free gift of God. Priests played only the role of "simple but necessary administrators" according to the will of Jesus, according to the Pope. "He will certainly be pleased if we make generous use of his mercy," he added.

The use of exorcists remains indispensable even today, said the Pope. Sometimes those with "spiritual disturbances" appear at Confession. Unless, as in most cases, they have psychological causes, pastors are not "reluctant to turn to those who are entrusted with this sensitive and necessary ministry in the diocese," the exorcists, said Francis to those attending a Course on Confession this Friday in the Vatican.

The Pope stressed that priests should consult psychologists and physicians for the assessment of supposed "spiritual disorders". It is also necessary to consider the "existential, ecclesiastical, natural and supernatural circumstances." The pope did not mention concrete examples. With a view to the exorcists, Francis said they had to be chosen "very carefully and with a great deal of prudence."

The Apostolic Penitentiary is one of the three highest courts of the Catholic Church. Among other things, it is responsible for the discharge and the lifting of penalties.

Pope Francis confesses in St. Peter's and then hears the confession himself Fasting 2017:

This is one of the times I have no criticism of Bergoglio. But what will he say differently tomorrow? Hopefully he sticks to this view he expresses now. I don't consider him to be the Pope, but I do consider him to be an Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rome. This that he said gives me a greater compassion for him and his eternal salvation.

Bergoglio worships, adores and serves Lucifer! What is he talking about?

That self-righteous monster should be at the top of the list of those needing to be exorcised!

I would only hope that the Exorcists would perform a 'major exorcism' on the Vatican itself. From what we've witnessed especially in the last 4 years, Satan himself does live there, and is running the show.

Sorry. Not buying. He says one Catholic thing per week. It is outweighed by the avalanche of non-Catholic things.

Blah blah blah. He has to say something orthodox every once in blue moon to keep the Novus ordites believing in his orthodoxy.

It is our Cathoöic bounden duty to follow even Bergoglio when he teaches or orders sonething that is proper to his office (the form and content are Catholic; the command is licit).

Far be it from us to treat him as if he were Satan. He may hate the Church, and have bo patience with the Catholic Faith - but not every word he says is evil. We would do well to remember this.

How can a "pope" hate the Church and have no patience with the Catholic faith?

This just defies logic.

Not every word a rapist or a murderer says is evil, either. But they are guilty of rape and murder.

Bergoglio is far, far, far, far, far worse that any rapist or murderer.

He is lower than scum. If God has a place for him in heaven, without an unprecedented public, broadcast repentance and undoing of his entire life's work as a priest, than God is worse than Bergoglio.

It is that simple to me.
