Yeah, you know what that "Congregation" is. It's the Inquisition.
ROME - The Catholic Church has vowed to “fight the Devil head-on” by training hundreds of priests as exorcists.
Father Gabriele Amorth, 82, the Exorcist in Chief, announced the initiative amid church concerns about growing worldwide interest in Satanism and the occult.
Under plans being considered, each bishop would have a group of priests in his diocese who were specially trained in exorcism and on hand to take action against “extreme Godlessness”.
“Thanks be to God that we have a Pope who has decided to fight the Devil head-on,” Father Amorth said.
“Now bishops are to be obliged to have a number of established exorcists for their diocese. Too many bishops are not taking this seriously and are not delegating their priests in the fight against the Devil. You have to hunt high and low for a proper, trained exorcist.
“Thankfully Pope Benedict XVI believes in the existence and danger of evil, from the time he was in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”
You know, I actually would like to see the Pope fight the Devil head-on. You do that by fighting poverty, corruption, violence and ignorance. The Devil triumphs while the priests play-act at kicking him out. Meanwhile, the Devil definitely gets the last laugh.
