Luckily, this is right up Francis' alley

The Catholic archdiocese in Madrid says it needs more exorcists to help some of its faithful cope with the devil.

An archdiocese spokeswoman said Friday that Madrid only has one exorcist priest and that it is considering a plan to train more. She spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with archdiocese policy. 

"The devil exists. That's a fact," she told The Associated Press. 
As I've said on many occasions, it must be terrifying to be Catholic. Everywhere you turn, hellish creatures are plotting against you. (And isn't it odd that no one but Christians can sense this devilish activity? I guess Satan only goes after Christians -- which is great news for the rest of us who are, you know, sane.)

But don't worry, Spain. Pope Francis is on the case.
