Did Pope Francis Perform an Exorcism?

Did Pope Francis Perform an Exorcism? News have been spreading that Pope Francis performed an exorcism to a young man on Saint Peter Square after a mass last Sunday, May 19. Based on the video provided by TV2000, a Catholic television channel, believers claim that he indeed perform deliverance to a wheelchair-bound young man who is deemed to be possessed by the devil. 

It was reported that the Pope gave the young man a broad smile as he shook his (the young man) hand. But the pontiff’s facial expression changed when a priest came closer to him and spoke a few words. The Pope went more serious and immediately placed both of his hands on the young man’s head for about 15 seconds.
