In S.U.A.SE CAUTA EXORCISTI.BISERICA CATOLICA AMERICANA ORGANIZEAZA CURSURI SPECIALE PENTRU INVATAREA TAINELOR EXORCISMULUI. Exorcists wanted: apply to Catholic Church
Se cauta persoane capabile sa alunge diavolii. Episcopii catolici din Statele Unite au organizat weekend-ul trecut, in Baltimore, un curs special prin care li s-au transmis mai multor clerici tainele ritualului de gonire a diavolului.
La cursul de doua zile care a inceput vineri,au participat 56 de episcopi si 66 de preoti , incercandu-se astfel sa mareasca randurile micului grup de numai cinci sau sase exorcisti pe care se baza pana acum intregul catolicism american.
„Este un grup foarte restrans de preoti care sustin ca primesc solicitari pe intreg teritoriul Statelor Unite. In mod normal, fiecare episcopie ar trebui sa aiba propriul exorcist”, declara episcopul Thomas Paprocki din Springfield, Illinois, fara a mentiona si motivul sporirii cererilor de exorcizare .
Legile Bisericii Romano-Catolice stipuleaza ca in exclusivitate preotii adecvat instruiti pot performa ritualui exorcismului si, chiar si ei numai cu permisiunea superiorilor monahali.
Posibile semne de posedare demonica includ zgariatul, taierea, muscarea pielii, forta fizica neobisnuita si o reactie puternica si violenta la vederea apei sfintite.
Catholic bishops: More exorcists needed

NEW YORK — Citing a shortage of priests who can perform the rite, the nation’s Roman Catholic bishops are holding a conference on how to conduct exorcisms.
Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez of Chile, holds the book „De Exorcismis et Supplicationibus Quibusdam” (Of Exorcisms and Supplications), the Vatican’s new guidelines on exorcism, presented during a news conference at the Vatican. The 1999 guidelines, written in Latin, update the last set written in 1614. After four centuries, The Vatican’s guidelines for driving out the devil includes a caveat not to mistake psychiatric illness for diabolic possession. America’s Roman Catholic bishops say there’s a shortage of exorcists in the country. To fix the problem, they’re holding a conference Friday, Nov. 12, 2010 and Saturday in Baltimore on how to perform the rite.

The two-day training, which ends Saturday in Baltimore, is to outline the scriptural basis of evil, instruct clergy on evaluating whether a person is truly possessed, and review the prayers and rituals that comprise an exorcism. Among the speakers will be Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, archbishop of Galveston-Houston, Texas, and a priest-assistant to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan.
„Learning the liturgical rite is not difficult,” DiNardo said in a phone interview before the conference, which is open to clergy only. „The problem is the discernment that the exorcist needs before he would ever attempt the rite.”
More than 50 bishops and 60 priests signed up to attend, according to Catholic News Service, which first reported the event. The conference was scheduled for just ahead of the fall meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which starts Monday in Baltimore.
Despite strong interest in the training, skepticism about the rite persists within the American church. Organizers of the event are keenly aware of the ridicule that can accompany discussion of the subject. Exorcists in U.S. dioceses keep a very low profile. In 1999, the church updated the Rite of Exorcism, cautioning that „all must be done to avoid the perception that exorcism is magic or superstition.”
