Pope Francis lays his hands on the head of a young man on Sunday after celebrating Mass in St. Peterís Square. The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, convulsed and shook, and then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him. The television station of the Italian bishops' conference said it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed Francis either performed an exorcism or a prayer to free the man from the devil.
