So in a new story of mine my MC makes a deal with the devil early on, and in the beginning has a hard time dealing with it. So I had the idea of him going to the priest to help him with it all.

The I ran into this, do Priests today believe that people can make deals with the devil and demons? How would they react to it? Laugh, grim face, holy water gun?

Holy Water Gun!
:)) Kidding!
Well, you can make the priest act like you want him too. Does it necessarily have to react like real priests do? You have the power of the pen. You can make your Priest in Exorcist expert whatever. Also, depends on the kind of priest it is. I mean the religion. Each and everyone has a different way of doing it.
The priests from my nearby church performed exorcism (never been to one though- To scared). I'm Orthodox! Catholic, maybe will be better. Protestant! Not so sure.
But I still think that you have the power of the pen to make your priest the way you want him to be!

foxfire says... priest might do some exorcism unless they are sure the people are being possess. I'm catholic and in my former country, there were a lot of story of teenagers being possessed by spirits or ghosts.

but on an exorcism, they usually read a line from the gospel and sprink holy water to the person while saying some prayers.

why? what is the story anyway??

Tony: You won't hurt me.
John McClane: Oh, yeah? Why not?
Tony: Because you're a policeman. There are rules for policemen.
John McClane: Yeah. That's what my captain keeps telling me

"For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noise way beneath. The same lulling sounds acted as a lullaby to my too keen sensations; when I placed my head upon my pillow, sleep crept over me; I felt it as it came and blessed the giver of oblivion."
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
