When some Milan residents see evil, they call them banksters and change the channel. Others call the Catholic Church in increasing numbers and press for exorcisms. It's a funny world like that. To meet the rising demand, the Catholic diocese of Milan has doubled its number of exorcists and created a special hot-line for the ghost busting men of the cloth.
Priests in Europe may soon be working overtime in their ageless struggle against the dark forces of evil.
The Catholic diocese of Milan has created a special exorcism hotline and has doubled the number of exorcism-practicing priests.
The BBC reports the number of trained priests has jumped from six to 12 to try and keep up with an apparent increase in calls over the past 15 years from citizens claiming to need the services of an exorcist.
