Bishop Xavier Novel – Who is he?

Xavier Novel was ordained a bishop in 2010 at the age of 41, making him Spain's youngest bishop at the time. He gained notoriety in the country due to his numerous appearances in the media where he expressed his very conservative and controversial views.

Among other things, he said he was against homosexuality, abortion and supported the independence of Catalonia. He has been performing exorcisms since 2015 and maintains their effectiveness. In addition, he also conducted and promoted so-called conversion therapies, the purpose of which – in his opinion – was to “cure homosexuality”. Experts insist that this type of treatment is not only pointless but also harmful.
