Anyone who has read "An Exorcist Tells His Story" knows that Italy has witnessed a growth of interest in Satanism.
Apparently it's gotten so bad that the BBC has noticed. Click here to watch their video segment on the subject.
I really don't care too much about the typical 17th Century Protestant concerns that witchcraft will ruin the lives of upstanding citizens, because a strong sacramental life is the best and surest protection against any diabolical activity, from simple temptation towards sin to more extraordinary events. But, it's truly a tragedy for those involved, who get wrapped up in systematically worshipping as an idol all that is unforgiving, jealous, and filled with hatred or isolation. I can't imagine it's a very humane existance.
