Exorcism: Legal perspective.

              Donbosco J. Mawdsley, SMA

Who can grant the Permission?

This authority of the local Ordinary shows his duty of vigilance over his sheep, the Diocese and the administration of the Sacraments and other liturgical acts of the Church given in his care. A priest, who is a member of a Religious Institute or a Society of Apostolic Life, even if the subject of the exorcism is a member of his own institute, is obliged to obtain the permission from the local Ordinary.[1] The vicar general or the Episcopal vicar may grant this permission only with a special mandate and when the bishop cannot be reached.[2]

Lack of Permission and its Legal effect.

Celebration of the sacramental of Exorcism without lawful permission creates an illegitimate priestly function and in accordance to Cannon 1384 can be punished with a just penalty.

An Exorcist even with the legitimate permission cannot lawfully celebrate this sacramental if he is excommunicated (Can 1331 2°). “I always use this phrase: the Prince of disobedience is Devil and you beat him by being Obedient.”[3] These words of Fr. Gaincarlo Gramolazzo clearly connect the permission given by the Bishop and received by the Priest to the act and the promise of Obedience of Priesthood. This permission also is linked to the faithfulness of the liturgical celebration i.e. using the ritual and the words that is approved by the component authority of the Church (Can 837, 838, 846).

Quality and Duty of an Exorcist Priest.

The legal documents of the Church clearly spell out that the permission can be given only to a priest. Therefore it is clear that the first quality of an Exorcist is Priesthood. There are other qualities nominated by the codes and rituals; Piety, Knowledge, Prudence and Integrity of Life.[4] These qualities which are demanded by the law also spell out the responsibility of the local Ordinary, who grants the permission, to be vigilant and to be sure that the qualities demanded by the law are present in the Priest to whom this permission is granted.  These requirements are not only qualities but at the same time duties of an exorcist priest.

 “The power of the prayer is not in the formula but in the faith”[5] these words of Fr. Gramolazzo clearly depict that an Exorcist priest must be a man of prayer. Fr. Amorth says “Faith is worth more than anything else.”[6] Many exorcists have a special devotion to Mary who fights for them in the front line.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church 1673 and Can 1172 and the Roman ritual an Exorcist should not perform Exorcism before being certain and ascertaining that the person on whom the Exorcism is performed is really possessed and not affected by some illness especially mental.

The Integrity of life in a simple way is explained by St. John Paul II “The Internal Principle, the force which animates and guides the spiritual life of the Priest in as much as he is configured to Christ the Head and shepherd, is pastoral Charity, as a participation in Jesus Christ’s own pastoral charity the gift freely bestowed by the Holy Spirit and likewise a task and a call which demand a free and committed response on the part of the priest” (PDV 23).
