The Exorcist - A Hea... High Quality

  • Music Cryptically referenced in the song "Guillotine", by Death Grips.The screens flashing red, can't see shit but heads Spinning exorcist like planets out of orbit off the edge

  • They Might Be Giants: From the song "Turn Around" on Apollo 18We were waving our arms out the window Of a fast-moving passenger train Acting in an irresponsible fashion Until the engineer whose back had been turned And who we thought would find this highly amusing Quickly swiveled his head around

The Exorcist - A Hea...

An exorcist himself and former state senator from Colorado Springs (arguably the evangelical capital of the US), Klingenschmitt feels that the practice has been misrepresented by the media. "In my experience, modern exorcisms are very gentle, very common, and very liberating," he said to me over the phone. "We in America have a jaded portrayal of exorcisms through the media and Hollywood. It's not like it is in the movies."

This phenomenon was recently documented by French newspaper Le Monde, which reported that the US went from having 12 noted exorcists in 2000 to 85 in 2014. In 2014, the Vatican formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, a collection of Catholic priests performing exorcisms around the globe, and began hosting its own courses on exorcisms. Last year, the group had 150 priests in attendance. This year it ratcheted up to 250. Not to mention the Vatican has recently adopted a policy to have at least one exorcist in every diocese to meet the increasing demand.

Father Gabriel Amorth, perhaps the most famous exorcist in modern history (and subject of an upcoming William Friedkin documentary), told the Telegraph that the rise in exorcisms is connected to the proliferation of Eastern faiths such as yoga and the popularity of Harry Potter books. According to him, engaging in either is like an open invitation for Satan to inhabit your soul. These warnings are all familiar to Marie McClellan, whose possession was said to have been caused by a Ouija board.

Amorth, the official exorcist for the diocese of Rome, claimed to have performed about 60,000 exorcisms before his death in 2016. Born in Modena, Italy, on May 1, 1925, he knew from around age 10 he was destined for the priesthood.

Today, exorcisms are on the rise worldwide, including in the United States, with the Catholic Church reportedly sending their exorcists to a new institute that trains spiritual warriors. Though no statistics are available, Catholic leaders say there are more exorcists in the US now than in any time in recent memory. And, in his lifetime, Amorth laid part of the blame on pop culture.

Fr. Lampert was appointed the exorcist for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in 2005 and has participated in dozens of major exorcisms. In addition to his duties as the exorcist for the Archdiocese, he currently serves as the Pastor of St. Malachy Catholic Church in Brownsburg, Indiana.

In an interview with The Christian Review, Father Lampert notes that he did not seek out the role, but "was chosen for it and then sent to study under a master exorcist in Rome for three months." During his training alone he participated in 40 exorcisms.

Fr. Lampert explains that "An exorcist in many ways is trained to be a skeptic first" and that he was chosen for the position because his bishop "wanted a priest who believed in the reality of evil, but would not rush to assume that everyone who came to him was actually possessed."

Fr. Lampert: Before confirming demonic involvement, an exorcist will rely on experts in the mental and medical health fields to assess the individual. They look for every possible physical or mental cause to explain what is taking place. This is the protocol that is followed before an exorcism takes place: 041b061a72
