"Modern" priests to learn how to cast out demons using cellphones

They will also learn about witchcraft in Africa.

This is after the increased demand of exorcisms within the Roman Catholic Church.

Participants will attend lectures and talks about witchcraft in Africa, how to tell the difference between demonic possession and mental illness, and the step by step guide to casting out demons.

Cardinal Ernest Simoni of Albania drew strong interest in the first session by citing the use of cellphones in exorcisms.

“They call me and we speak and that’s how I do it."

Number of demonic possessions increasing

No official numbers have been given but the church insists that demonic possessions are on the rise.

As well as licensed exorcists, theologians, psychologists, medical doctors, criminologists, and Church historians will also address the course participants.

Students will receive a certificate but would not entitle them to cast out demons.

Only priests can perform exorcisms, and only with their bishop’s permission or a licence.

Course attendants can be auxiliary exorcists meaning they can be present at the rite, pray and give moral support to the priest casting out the demon.
