Exorcism requests on the rise

It’s an ancient practice and an Roman Catholic rite, but why is it suddenly on the rise in the U.S.? Father Vincent Lampert, exorcist for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, says received 1,700 phone or email requests for exorcisms in 2018, by far the most he’s ever gotten in one year. In 2011 the U.S. had fewer than 15 Catholic exorcists; today there are well over 100.  [1]
