Father Gary Thomas was my parish priest for a few years.Before he was a priest,he worked as an embalmer! I had hear that he was sent to Rome for studies,but never would I have believed that he went to learn exorcism.People who undergo this rite are first checked for mental and physical health issues.Father Thomas was interviewed for a local paper,in which he stated that Hollywood takes liberties with stories to make them more interesting,that some things in the movie,THE RITE,did not happen.
