for The Hill
A Catholic conference in Rome last week considered how the Internet has spurred a heightened interest in Satanism, The Telegraph reports.
Father Nanni, a member of the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints, told The Telegraph: "We must be on guard because occult and Satanist practices are spreading a great deal, in part with the help of the Internet and new technologies that make it easier to access these rituals."
The conference brought together around 60 members of the Catholic clergy along with doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers and youth workers. The perception among organizers is that interest in Devil-worship is on the rise, according to the article.
