COMMENTARY: Faced with the activity of supernatural evil in our countries what should be the response of faithful bishops, priests and laity?

Homosexual activists have succeeded in persuading the ruling elites to use the power of the State, media and big business to successfully campaign for the legalization of same-sex “marriage.”
A government minister of Ireland, one of the most pro-life countries of the world, has announced with satisfaction the killing of 26 babies in 2014 as a result of Prime Minster Enda Kenny’s abortion law. These are the first “legal” abortions ever conducted in the Republic of Ireland. A majority in the U.K. House of Commons, which prides itself on promoting feminism, voted down a motion to protect baby girls from gendercide abortion. No wonder there is a sense among faithful Catholics that moral life is spinning out of control in Ireland and Britain.
The question is, does the accelerating abandonment of morality and the riotous celebration of immorality, coupled with increasing hostility towards Christianity, especially the Catholic Church, indicate the activity of supernatural evil in both Britain and Ireland? Do these countries require an exorcism, along the lines of the one recently carried out in Mexico?
The most significant evidence that the devil is conspiring to bring these events about is the reversal of public morality, where good is now condemned as evil, and evil is celebrated as good. For example, during the referendum in Ireland good people who defended marriage between a man and woman for the procreation and upbringing of children were pilloried in the media and meetings as wicked bigots.
