Exorcism in real life isn't as dramatic as in the movies, but it still is quite a harrowing experience – both for the person affected as well as onlookers.
One such incident took place in a church in Buenos Aires, Argentina where a woman possessed by the devil was brought for exorcism.
As soon as Bishop Manuel Acuna starts reciting his religious scriptures, the woman named Laura begins screaming and writhing in pain. The bishop then orders the demon to free her body and vacate her soul while she is pinned down by others.
Her condition regresses when a cross is put on her chest and then head. She finally finds her peace when the devil leaves her body.
"The demon exists," said Acuna. "He's not an idea, he's not a theory, he's not something abstract. The devil is a personality and therefore has a strategy. We are talking about something terrifying, a fallen angel. The devil is not a metaphor. The devil is something real that Jesus Christ faced. The devil looks for the perdition of the human being and for this he will use any possible evil instrument."
