"They don't need exorcism, they need to be converted, to be converted to God, that's what they need. They need to confess, they need true penitence, true repentance, that's what they need. They're not possessed."
There is no sign at all that Maciel was repentant. We cannot judge, but we need to look at the signs. If there were signs that he was repentant, we could hang our hat on them. Bottom line: no demonic possession, just plain horrid sin.
