Pope Benedict XVI to set up exorcism squads



According to Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief exorcist for the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI wants to set up exorcism "squads" to deal with what he is calling the rampant growth of Satanism. The decision was made due to the rising concerns among Church officials over growing interest in Satanism and the occult.

According to Father Amorth each bishop will be provided with a group of priests who are experts in performing exorcisms and more will be trained as needed.

This has me wondering if a group will be sent to the Diocese of Fresno to assist Bishop Steinbock in any reported exorcists? Not that any information would be released to the public as this information is kept confidential. Given the fact that Fresno is considered the Bible Belt of California, I wonder if there will be a rash of reported possessions? You know us Catholics, we find anything bad to be evil and possessed.
