Fr. Amroth said many bishops and priests don't believe in the devil anymore. Even exorcists write it off as psychological problems sometimes.

This begs the question: do you have to believe in the power of exorcism to do what it's supposed to...in order to do one?

You have to have a lot of faith that Christ has your back and that His power will trump that of the demon whom you are fighting.  It is a real battle between good and evil, and someone who doesn't believe in demons couldn't even begin to have the courage to stand up to them, much less continue on fighting the enemy for hours, and perhaps days, weeks, or months, on end.


I've heard that a strong faith and much self control over ones passions is a must for this sort of thing. That and humilty since any person priest or not who tries with their own power to battle evil angels will get mopped up. Christ and the authority of His Church works through a humble priest who has been given faculties to perform an exorcism. I remember my priest once said that us laity shouldn't ever personally address the devil or do things like binding prayers. Personally we have zero authority over satan, the only thing we can do is throw ourselves at the feet of our Lord, our Lady and the Saints. And with satan and the demons being fallen angels of superior power and intelligence we cannot win without God.
