I strongly encourage and approve of Demons, Deliverance, and Discernment. If we are to offer Christ's healing to those suffering from either demonic possession or mental disorders, it is vital that we avoid novelty and melodrama. As Fr. Driscoll points out, we must rely on solid Catholic spirituality, and on psychological principles that conform to our Faith. --Most Rev. Daniel R. Jenky, Bishop of Peoria
