Religious Figure
    (May 1, 1925-September 16, 2016)
    Born in Modena, Italy
    Roman Catholic priest and exorcist
    Named official exorcist of the Diocese of Rome (1986)
    As of 2013, claimed to have performed 160,000 exorcisms
    Wrote 'An Exorcist Tells His Story' (1999) and 'An Exorcist: More Stories' (2002)
    He had to change his office 23 times because of other priests complaining about the non-stop screaming of possessed people coming from his quarters.
    He said a successful exorcist must be 'profundly humble and treasure obscurity.' Which explains his two autobiographies. And his appearances at film festivals to promote the Anthony Hopkins exorcism film 'The Rite.' And his many press interviews. And....
    He said being a Freemason can open you up to being possessed by devils. So can yoga. And reading the Harry Potter books.
    He said the pedophilic priest scandal was proof that the Antichrist is waging war against the Roman Catholic Church. (How convenient for the Antichrist that the Church decided to cooperate by aiding and abetting the pedophiles.)
    When he was a teen during WWII, he joined the Italian resistance.
    He said about Halloween, 'If English and American children like to dress up as witches and devils on one night of the year that is not a problem. If it is just a game, there is no harm in that.'
    An interviewer described him as 'a kindly old man with an uncanny knack for making the truly bizarre seem wholly rational.'
    His favorite film? 'The Exorcist,' of course.
