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. 

It can be seen from the video that the man seized for a short moment and released a long sigh. His body went drooped and his mouth fell open. Prominent exorcists said that the Pope had indeed delivered the evil spirit away from the young man's body; however, Vatican Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi downplayed the incident saying that the Pope does not have any intention of performing any exorcism.
