It is the exorcism here that is at issue:

As I read the translation of Cardinal Ratzinger's remarks it seems to me that the use of Leo XIII's exorcism is forbidden to lay people:

"2. It follows also from these same prescriptions that Christ's faithful may not employ the formula of exorcism against Satan and the fallen angels which is excerpted from that formula made official by order of the Supreme Pontiff Leo XIII, and certainly may not use the entire text of that exorcism. Let all bishops take care to admonish the faithful about this matter whenever such instruction is required."
