Despite the rising demand for exorcists in Italy, younger priests are not applying for the job, which they claim to find “too scary” for their level of experience.
Rome’s busiest exorcist, 79-year-old Father Vincenzo Taraborelli, who sees dozens of troubled people every day in his backroom office, says that the need for exorcists is great but it is hard to find willing candidates, especially among younger priests. “I told the bishop that I can’t find anyone willing to do this. Many of them are scared. Even priests can be scared. It’s a difficult life,” he said.
