True or False? After Sunday’s Pentecost Mass, Pope Francis approached the children with disabilities who attended the Mass putting both his hands on top of the head of one of the children, performed a simple exorcism.
According to a journalist of TV2000, a channel owned by the Italian Episcopal Conference, this gesture represents an act of exorcism. The network, who has a weekly programme called “Vade Retro,” questioned a few exorcists who confirmed his interpretation.
The images in the video show Pope Francis having a brief conversation with the priest who is standing behind the child, after which his expression changes and his hands cover the child’s head.
“The exorcists who have seen the images have no doubt: this was a liberation prayer from evil, or a real act of exorcism,” adds TV2000. Their next episode of “Vade Retro” will focus on Pope Francis’ battle against the Devil and its temptations.
What do you think? Was this an exorcism or a simple blessing?
“The Holy Father did not intend to perform any exorcism,” Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said in a statement, after the claims by TV 2000, which is owned by the Italian bishops’ conference. Well there you have it folks. Magic isn’t real. This is almost as disappointing as finding out Santa Clause is make-believe. When will society let our imaginations fly with us!?
