Yes, you read correctly. If the devil can infest someone who is headed for sainthood, boy I am in trouble. Not something the Catholics talk about a lot....

The exorcism is said to have taken place in a hospital where the nun was admitted for a heart problem before her death on 5 September 1997, at the age of 87....

When the doctor informed him that the nun was having difficulty sleeping, the archbishop feared she might be possessed.

Pope John Paul put the nun on a fast-track to sainthood

    "When doctors said they could not find a medical reason for her sleeplessness, I thought she might be getting attacked by the devil," Archbishop Henry Sebastian D'Souza told Reuters.

She may have been an Atheist. Hitchens book "The Missionary Position" is worth a read.

Well, at least now I know an englishman must remain quiet when an Irish (American) man speaks...

Maybe she couldn't sleep because of her conscience? Insisting pain was part of the price for getting into heaven, for those poor souls in her charge, then diverting the money given to her organisation to the Vatican or building projects for the benefit of anyone but the sick. Not to mention some of the evil bastards she accepted money from.

 Proves us non-believers have got sod-all to worry about if there is a magic man in the sky - if she gets in, we all get in.
