It has been decades since a pope has been as candid about Satan himself as Pope Francis is. Rather than referring to the actual devil, Pope Benedict XVI often had used theology in his teachings on evil. In an address to a group of priests at a Vatican workshop meant to bolster the skillset of a good confessor, Francis has told priests that they “should not hesitate” to call on a Vatican-trained exorcist should they need one. Pope Fancis says that priests should first consult psychiatric specialists, but should not rule out exorcism as a form of treatment.
