Have you ever found yourself battling a demon but couldn’t easily locate a priest to help with an exorcism? Well, the Catholic diocese of Milan is here to help with a special exorcism hotline, which will quickly dispatch a priest to deal with the unclean spirit. Finally, an answer to the question, “Who ya gonna call?”

According to the diocese’s chief exorcist, Monsignor Angelo Mascheroni, the number of complaints about demonic possession has sharply increased over the past 15 years. “From the number of calls we receive, the need has doubled,” he said. “We get young and old, men and women, people with different levels of education, from school-leavers to graduates.”

So, the diocese increased its number of exorcism-trained priests from 6 to 12 and set up a phone number where people can make an appointment to consult with a priest near them. But while Mascheroni says it’s important to keep an eye out for real “diabolical phenomena,” he admits these cases are rare.

“Often, parents call me saying that their son or daughter doesn’t go to school, that they are taking drugs or rebelling. There’s no demon there but, at the age of 18, young people don’t want any more limitations. It’s important to be able to discern the different situations,” he said.

Still, it’s good to know there’s a phone number for defeating the forces of evil, right?
