Exorcists who reportedly worship the devil and believe its former leader controls climate change are being investigated by the Vatican.

The Brazil-based group of exorcists, known as the Heralds of the Gospel, are said to use rogue exorcism practices to possess people.

They also believe their former leader Dr Plinio Correa de Oliveira, who died in 1995, is in close contact with Satan.

Even in death, Dr Plinio is said to possess the ability to control climate change and is plotting towards the death of Pope Francis.

The investigation was launched as video emerged online purporting to show group members recounting a conversation with the devil. 

Its current leader Monsignor João Scognamiglio Clá Dias, an honorary canon of the Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome, also features in the clip.

The video purports to show one of the members reading from a transcript that recounts a conversation between the devil and Heralds of the Gospel.

Referring to the group's original founder, the group foresees the downfall of Pope Francis and that a meteorite will crash into the Atlantic Ocean, destroying North America

'The pope does whatever I want, he's stupid! He obeys me in everything. He is my glory, he is willing to do everything for me. He serves me,' the member narrates.

‘The pope does whatever I want, he’s stupid! He obeys me in everything. He is my glory, he is willing to do everything for me. He serves me,’ the member narrates.

The demon, referring to the group’s original founder, says: ‘Dr Plinio, the author of the climate change, and the increase of heat.

‘It is Plinio who does everything,’ according to the devil as channelled through the exorcist.’

The ‘devil’ also foresees that a meteorite will crash into the Atlantic Ocean and that North America will ‘disappear’.

It adds: ‘The Vatican? It’s mine, mine!

‘The pope does whatever I want, he’s stupid! He obeys me in everything. He is my glory, he is willing to do everything for me. He serves me,’ the member narrates.

The devil then predicts that ‘the pope will die falling’ and that Dias will replace him.

A Vatican spokesman told Vatican Insider that ‘an in-depth and thorough inquiry’ will take place.  

Other videos which have reportedly been removed from the internet are said to show exorcisms being performed using unauthorised techniques. 

The group splintered from its original organisation, the Tradition, Family and Property Association (TFP), following Dr Plinio’s death in 1995, and was headed up by Dias.

The Vatican’s Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life is investigating the over the alleged controversial practices.  

Dias, who has now resigned from his position, will retain a role in Herald of the Gospel’s affairs in a seemingly consultant-like position
