Exorcists and Exorcisms (Viewer Discretion advised)

Exorcisms can only be performed by a Catholic Priest, not a lay person.  Deliverance can only be performed by those who are trained and have the gift for this ministry.  It can be dangerous for those who are not trained and who may engage in this ministry out of their own personal curiosity or gain.  Adam Blai who features in this video is not an exorcist, but assists Exorcist Priests and also educates Priests on exorcism.

Following Profile from Catholic Answers (http://www.catholic.com/profiles/adam-blai)

Adam Blai (Bly) is a Church decreed expert on religious demonology and exorcism in the Pittsburgh diocese. He is an auxiliary member of the International Association of Exorcists based in Rome. Over the last decade he has helped educate priests on exorcism at national conferences, seminars, and through consultation on many cases in a number of diocese. He has assisted at many dozens of solemn exorcisms, house exorcisms, and resolutions of hauntings. In addition to Church cases he reaches out to educate people on the current paranormal craze, the dangers therein, and more ethical ways to resolve hauntings. He has put together a pastoral manual for priests on exorcism and resolving human spirit hauntings.

He has a masters in adult clinical psychology from Penn State and is all but dissertation (ABD) for his Ph.D. His professional life has been spent working in the Pennsylvania State prison system as a Psychological Services Specialist where he has done hundreds of psychological evaluations for the parole process and worked with the full range of mental illness and human evil.
